Question about Hoover SteamVac F5914-900 SpinScrub Upright Vacuum

1 Answer

Will not dispense water or solution

Spin scrub working fine. I dump the dirty water, then fill hot water into the proper tank. I add the soap. Put it all together. Turn on the machine, it spins, but not water or soap dispenses.

I saw another suggestion that mentioned a handle and a valve, but I don't know what that means. I didn't see where the handle attaches or a valve.

Thanks,

On the bottom of the tank is a valve, push it in and see if water comes out Where the tank sits, there is a black round seal, is it in the proper place? The rod in the handle hits just under that seal, with the tank off, you can see if the rod is movin up and down when you depress the trigger. The resevior asm. may be bad, that is what the tank sits on.

I need to know why the Hoover Max Extreme keeps telling me t check the tank?


Hi! The solution and water goes in the top tank. Dirty water is suctioned into the bottom tank as you're scrubbing your floors. To fill the clean water tank, remove the clean water tank cap. The cap serves as a measuring cap for the solution. Fill the cap with Hoover carpet washer solution to the fill line. Pour detergent into tank. Fill the rest of the clean water tank with hot tap water and twist the cap back on. You are now ready to clean. Hope this helps!

Bissell cleanview carpet cleaner


There are a few things that can cause a Bissell carpet cleaner to not dispense water. First thing to check is the belts if your machine is a Pro Heat. The flat belt goes around the motor shaft and the pump. As the motor runs it spins the pump. This is a stretch belt and stretch belts should be replaced at least once or twice per year to work properly as they will lose elasticity even if the machine has never been turned on. The first thing to check is to see if water will spray from the upholstery tool. If it sprays but you still get no water at the floor jets then check and clean the jets to insure they are not clogged. Getting water from the upholstery tool means the pump is working ok. If not, make sure the water tank and soap tank are not empty. Even if the water tank is full make sure the soap tank is full too. I would suggest NOT putting any soap in the soap tank because that is what causes most of the problems. Put plain tap water in the soap tank and try the machine again. Hold the trigger down giving it plenty of time to flush out any air bubbles and/or soap from the pump and the lines. If you still can't get any water from to the floor jets the most likely problem is the heater is clogged with mineral deposits or soap gunk. When a machine sits in the closet for months the soap in the lines coagulates and will clog things up. Which is why if you want the machine to work for a long time NEVER put soap in it. To do a better job of cleaning put your soap and hot water into a sprayer and use this solution to pre-condition the carpets. Pre-conditioning gives the soap and hot water a chance to dissolve the gunk in your carpets, then use fresh hot water in the machine to flush the soap and dirt from your carpets. Your machine will last longer and your carpets will be cleaner and stay clean longer because you rinsed out the soap. If you try this method you will be amazed how much cleaner your carpets will be.
If you need to clean the heater you will need to separate the handle assembly by removing all the screws. First make sure the machine is unplugged. You'll have to figure out which screws need to come out, it's not too tough. The heater is inside the handle. Look at how it comes apart so you will know how to put it back together. The heater is the silver metal thing with wires and hoses. Remove the screws that hold the cover on being sure not to lose any of the tiny red gaskets. Remove the cover and clean the soap or mineral deposits from the heater core, put the cover back on and put it back together and it should work fine. To keep it from getting clogged again simply make sure you use soft water if minerals were the problem and never put soap in the machine.

Need directions to fill , and how to use


Hi

I have one just like it. Lay the machine back by pressing the pedal on the left side of the machine with your foot. Now you can get to the handle for the clean/dirty water tank. Lift this off. There's a clip in the back to separate the top sweep section from the tank. Take off the top. You'll see an open hole on the top for filling the bladder inside. This is for clean, hot water only. Fill the bladder, around the bladder is where the dirty water goes back in. you can drain the dirty water by pouring out the corner. There is also a plug on the bottom for draining the bladder when you're done.

When you put the sweep section back on the tank be sure to catch the front part over the edge of the tank or it won't stay on. Then fasten the clasp and put it back in place.

To fill the soap dispenser... find it at the back of the machine at the bottom. It just lifts out of the machine. Fill to line and reinsert.

Hope this helps.

SteamVac Carpet/Upholstery Deep Cleaner Vacuum: how do i add the solution to the steam vac? how mu...


You didn't give a model number so I'll tell you both methods. The F5xxx and F6xxx models have a cap at the top of the clean water tank that doubles as a measuring cup. The cap is about 3 inches in diameter. Fill the cap to the fill line with shampoo and dump it in the tank. Then fill the tank with hot (Not Boiling) water.
The F7xxx series has a 2 section tank. The large section is for hot (Not Boiling) water. The smaller section is for shampoo. Fill the smaller section with shampoo and the Steam Vac will mix the water and shampoo for you in the proper proportion.

Where do you put the soap cleaner, does this go


Hello,
The cleaning solution goes in the top tank. Fill top tank with hot water first, then add the cleaning solution. That way it doesn't foam up. The tank lid is also a cup to measure how much solution you put in. Usually fill to top line. Make sure when you put tank on machine it snaps in place. if you have a manual, refer to it for instructions if you need to.
Hope this helps.

hi,

okay the under the lid of the big tank has a place for regular hot water theres a flexible inner bladder inside the main tank- fill that with hot water. When your shampooing the dirty water fills in around it, also between the back wheels theres where the resolve/bissell detergent goes. we use regular washing machine liquid diluted 50/50 in the soap dispenser , its cheaper and does the same thing..also, if you have pets, the bissels have a brush roller mechanism that gets clogged with pet hair quickly and will self destruct, every few rows stop and see how much pet hair is around those rollers and remove it.

Not dispensing water and no suction


I'm assuming the belts are OK.... Your heater is clogged. Unplug the machine and let it sit for 30 minutes. Take the handle apart, there will be a 4 inch by 8 inch metal box inside. This is the heater. Remember I said to let the machine sit for 30 minutes? If you didn't, the heater may be EXTREMELY hot!! Disconnect the two hoses going into it, and clean the metal pieces out (that the hoses connected to) with a needle or very small drill bit. You may want to remove the 6 or 8 screws holeding the heater together and remove the cover to clean it out. Reassemble and fill both tanks with VERY hot water ONLY and run the machine to rinse the entire system.

To prevent future reoccurences... use only Bissell extraction shampoos. Never put anything in the detergent tank except shampoo. (And only water in the water tank) Mixing chemicals with anything else turns the water/detergent mix to sludge. Also, when finished shampooing, put ONLY water in both tanks, and run the machine until one of the tanks run out of solution. Doing this rinses the hose lines out and prevents hardening of the solution in the heater ports.

I've fixed these machine for years. No dispensing is almost always the heater clogged.
