One cause is the filter in the dirty water tank lid is pushed up too high, it needs to have a gap of 1/4 in or so. So check it, if it is up all the way, pull it down some.

Hoover SteamVac F6030-900. Does not **** up

check the black plastic motor cover. these frequently melt and loose seal due to the extreme heat of the motor. if the plastic is warped, then that is the problem. also check for hair and cloggs throughout the suction ports

The scrub brushes dont spin anymore

The brushes are turning by an air driven turbine. The turbine has a pivot bushing made of steel inside of it that gets rusty because of the water that is running through it. The turbine gear will have to be replaced. You can access the turbine gear by removing the hood. You can find a genuine hoover replacement part by following the link below. Just find the model number of your Steamvac.

Vac not sucking up water

its supposed to, it means you need to dump out the tank. Its a safety feature that keeps the water out of the motor. if its lifting up due to foaming, than try using the original brand shampoo

Hoover V2 SteamVac

Under the detergent side, there is a metering plate,(located on the machine) which can be removed. ensure that this is installed. have you verified whether the machine will dispense detergent only without any water in the water tank?

Dirty water is leaking back out

After shut off all steamvacs will leak dirty water that was sucked up back out. There is always some left in the nozzle. If it is a large amount there is clogged filter that isnt allowing the proper suction. Refer to your manual or go to to download one for cleaning directions.

You didn't give your model number, but if this is a V2, you may have a crack in the tank, alot of times it is underneath the seal on the bottom. Or the plunger at the bottom of the tank is stuck open or missing.

This happens when the filter on the inside of the lid for the dirty water tank is pushed all of the way up. You need to leave a 1/4 in. gap from the top to the top of the filter, or the lid for the dirty water tank is not locked down on th e tank.
