Question about Hoover F5858-910 SteamVac Vacuum
I have a Hoover z400 and the suction hose seems to be clogged at the base where the vacuum head pivots. There is no suction when I run the unit on the floor, but if I detach the hose and use the hose with attachments there is perfect suction. I have tried to remove debris with a coat hanger (carefully) and have had little luck due to how the plastic is molded where the debris travels. I hope this is descriptive enough. Please help!
So, we removed the plastic flap which appeared to be stuck in the upright position allowing the hose and attachments to work, but not the base. Now it is working, but we will have to put the flap back to get the rest of it to work if we can't figure out how to fix the problem. Not a total solution, but now at least I can vacuum the carpet without using the little attachment!

There should be a bottom plate covering the brush roll that you can remove, if you can't dig out the what is in there, try using your hose and suck it out from the bottom, maybe you will be able to get it out.
