Recovery Tank red float disk rising to top when no water is in recovery tank

In reading my manual, I have cleaned the filter and made sure the recovery tank is in the correct position yet the red float disk keeping rising to the top even when there is no water in the recovery tank. Help!!!!! The other cause states that there may be blockage in the tool on end of hose. I have rarely used the the upholstery hose so don't feel that is my problem. Can you recommend anything else I might do to get the recovery tank to accept water without the float disk rising? Thank you. - Marianne

When you put the filter back on, you must have put it all of the way to the top. There needs to be about a 1/4 in. gap from the top of the filter to the top of the lid.

My Hoover steam vac spin scrub will not suction up the cleaning solution . Why is there no suction?


p{margin-top:0px; margin-bottom:0px;} Hello,

Thank you for your recent e-mail. I am sorry to read about the problem that you are having with your cleaner.

Please make sure your recovery tank and lid are installed correctly and forming proper seals. Make sure that your filter is clean of any debris. Clean the screen in the tank lid. Make sure your nozzle and squeegee (if on your model) are free of dirt/lint/hair and attached in their holsters correctly. Make sure you do not have any clogs in the hose.

To restore suction, please try the following:

*Remove dirty water tank and clean filters- main reason for low suction is dirty filter

*Verify the dirty water tank cap is not missing.

*Verify dirty water tank lid is inserted completely into unit.

*When cleaning, the yellow float inside of dirty water tank should be free moving.


• First remove your clean water tank and unplug the machine
• Remove the dirty water tank lid and push the front panel piece (square plastic sliding piece in the front of tank) down to make sure it is inserted all the way.
• When reattaching the lid, hook the tabs on the front of the lid to the tank first, then click shut in the back. Pull up on the lid firmly, it should not lift at all. If it does, try reattaching as a seal needs to be formed for suction.
• Test to see if suction has been regained.

If these suggestions do not solve your issue please call a service center.

Your cleaner has at least a 6 month warranty for manufacturing defects. This warranty begins from the date of purchase, with the original sales receipt. If you do not have the original sales receipt, the warranty may be verified at the warranty repair center by MFG or serial number.

Please visit www.Hoover.com and click on service center locator for a list of authorized dealers in your area for service and warranty assistance.


Sincerely,

I just purchased a floormate. I can't seem to get it to spray cleaning solution.


Turn the cleaner off and then on again to determine whether the cause of no suction resulted from the activation of the automatic shut-off. There are two reasons a tank will automatically shut off. The first is if the recovery tank is full. Located on the lower front panel of the unit, the recovery tank can be easily emptied and replaced into position. To remove from unit, press down on the release button and pull the tank downward and forward. Lift up on the tank latch lid and take out the tank lid. Empty the tank. Also check the tank lid screen for debris and remove any found. To replace the lid, align the tab that corresponds to the front hole of the tank. Snap the latches on the back of the tank. Insert the bottom of the tank back into the cleaner and push in and up until it locks in place.
Turn the unit on again and check the suctioning action. The second reason automatic shut-off could take place is if the handle was raised to an upright position while the motor was running. Should this occur, simply turn the unit off, wait a moment for the shut-off to reset, and turn it on again to continue cleaning.
  • 2 Make sure the filter and filter lid are properly positioned in the recovery tank lid. The cause of the problem could be that the filter or the filter lid were missing or were not in the proper position.
  • 3 Check that both recovery tank and/or solution tanks are locked in place and are positioned properly. The recovery tank is located on the lower front panel of the Floormate, and the solution tank is located in the front top panel of the unit. To remove from unit, press down on the release button and pull the tank downward and forward. Lift up on the tank latch lid and take out the tank lid. Empty the tank. Also check the tank lid screen for debris and remove any found. To replace the lid, align the tab that corresponds to the front hole of the tank. Snap the latches on the back of the tank. Insert the bottom of the tank back into the cleaner and push in and up until it locks in place.
  • 4 Observe whether filter is dirty. If the filter is dirty, clean the filter by turning the cleaner off and disconnecting it from the electrical unit. Take out the recovery tank and lid. Remove loose debris from the filter by wiping clean with a brush or tapping the filter over a garbage can. After this is completed, the filter may be rinsed clean for additional cleaning and then air dried before returning the filter to the unit.
  • 5 Check that the nozzle is in the proper position and locked. Locate the nozzle underneath the suctioning base of the unit. Make sure the latches are out and line up the middle section of the nozzle with the opening of the cleaner. Hold the nozzle in place while simultaneously sliding the latches inward to lock in

    Automatic shutoff red ball in recovery tank rises to top when recovery tank is about 20% full.Thus we are only able to use the steam cleaner for about 2 minutes before having to empty the recovery tank....


    Your cleaner should have a foam sock around the float cage in the recovery tank. Remove the foam sock and rinse it out with clean water. If these are very dirty, they may cause the airflow to be disrupted, causing the float to raise prematurely.

    Recovery tank not filling


    The tank has an automatic shutoff float (red) that will stop the suction if the water level gets too high. this can also happen if the tank is not level or clean as the float can bounce around and jam at the top. I've actually had this one happen). I would make sure the float is down during the cleaning and see if the suction comes back. if not, please provide more details and we'll get 'er fixed!

    How to unclog i guess


    If this has a foam filter on the bottom side of the recovery tank lid, make sure there is at least a 1/4 in. gap from the top. Also check the filter from the bottom, it has a red frame, clean it off it covered over. The other thing that will cause this is that the lid for the recovery tank is not locked down all of the way around.

    My hover steam clear will not **** water back in, i have not used it in over a year.


    Depending of your model, some have a duct that sits in front of the recovery tank, if yours has this, is the duct in place? Most have a foam filter on the inside of the recovery tank lid, make sure that there is at least a 1/4 in gap from the filter to the top of the tank lid. There is another filter you can get to from the bottom, it has a red frame and you can pull it ou far enough to clean it. One other thing is that the tank lid isn't latched in the back of the tank. Any of these will cause no suction.
