Question about Hoover F5892-900 SteamVac Upright Vacuum

1 Answer

Hoover Steamvac F5892-900 leaving lines on carpet, does not seem to spray

Let me first say I just love my Hoover Steamvac. I recently noticed after a that it seems to be leaving lines on the carpet where it appears the cleaner is being placed on the carpet.

Does this sound like the part that releases the cleaner onto the carpet or possibly something else? Is there something I can do to try and resolve it or do I need to take it to a Hoover service dealer.

    The cleaner does suck up the water okay. I suppose that means I need to take it for service. Thank you!

  • Lisa1965 Feb 09, 2008

    One more thing, the lines on the carpet is when I pull the trigger to dispense the cleaner on the carpet even before I pull the cleaner back over to vacuum up the water. Is it possible that the brushes are not turning? Is there a spray mechanism that is under there that should cause it to dispense the solution as a spray but now sends it out as a stream. That seems to be mostly what is happening.

  • Lisa1965 Feb 09, 2008

    When I turn on the cleaner, and reach under the brushes are not spinning. How can I figure out if it is the turbine or shaft to the brush block? Also, what may be theh charge to repair if taken to a repair place?

  • Lisa1965 Feb 23, 2008

    Reddevil6 was right and the cost was close to $100 plus an additional $50 for a crack hose line. Instead of repairing, I decided to go ahead and get another one since. A new Hoover model cost $168 delivered (tax included). Thank you for helping me figure out what to do.

Is the cleaner sucking up the water like it should? If not , check that the filter on the inside of the lid has a 1/4 in. gap between the filter and the top of the lid. Either that or the water isn't completely being shut off when you release the trigger, in whcih case you would probably have to take it in for service.

    Yes it could be that the brushes aren't turning, which you should be able to see by just turning it on. If not then either the shaft on the brush block broke off or the turbine isn't turning the brushs. The spray nozzles spray onto the brush block.

    Take the brush block out, if that shaft is on it then the turbine is bad. Part number 43191003, and probably sells for around $50 plus labor. So it would probably be a $100 repair.

Hoover steamvac won't spray water on carpet.


Check the ank valve to make sure when you push it in that water is coming out. The reservior asm, (the tank bottom sits on this)is bad or the rod in the handle isn't pushing the reservior asm when you squeeze the trigger.

Steamvac


You might try running a solution of vinegar and water thru it to clean out the lines and spray nozzles. Also are the brushes turning when you are using it, that could also be the problem.

Are the brushes turning while you are shampooing? If not then this could be the problem. The turbine is what turns the brushes, it may have gone bad.
