It should **** back up the water as you move along.
It seems like you have a suction leak or it is plugged with debris.
I would take it apart and clean.

No suction of hoover carpet cleaner


Might be a bad blower/impellar - you must disassemble to check. But most likely the lid on the recovery tank is not installed correctly allowing air (suction) to leak. On most models you can remove the solution recovery tank, turn the unit on and feel for suction where the tank fits onto the base (look for the round, black rubber type seal in the front corner that mates to the round outlet on the underside of the recovery tank.) If there is good suction at this seal, then the problem is an air leak, almost always due to a loose or incorrectly fitted lid on the recovery tank. Also, if you have a detachable insert (for attachments) on the front of the recovery tank, check that the insert is installed properly. If this is reversed it will not provide suction.

Why does my hoover steam vac only blow out


Hey there! The cleaner blowing out air instead of sucking is an indication that the unit is not sealed off properly. Follow these brief steps to restore suction to your cleaner.

1. Remove the clean water tank.

2. Recline the handle and let the cleaner lay flat.

3. Remove the dirty water tank lid.

4. Reposition the front panel located on the outside of the tank in the center. It should be flush to the tank, even straight across and pushed down as far as it will go.

5. Assemble the dirty water tank lid back on from the front to the back. The lid should not lift up from the front.

Give it a try! The cleaner should now have suction. Hope this helps!

How do I get reverse suction with the electrolux epic 6000?


I have no idea just what reverse suction would be or how to get it from ANY vac. If you're looking at getting the blowing air from the vac instead of suction, then simply move the hose from the suction end to the exhaust end.

Blows air out, not sucking in. Hoover Agility F215-900


It's most likely it's not blowing air out, rather the brush is kicking debris back and out due to loss of suction..
Another possibility with the power head is a cracked or leaky tube between the tank and power head.
For the tank, check all areas for clogs, and clear them.

Power goes on but will not pull up water from carpet


In other words, there's no suction/air flow. Check hose/s for clogs or leaks. Both will cause a loss of suction, but clogs will burn out the motor.

Hoover Steam Vac - Brushes not turned, no suction power


The Brushes not spinning is most likely is caused by seized bearings in the turbine, requiring shop service (easy fix). The suction issue can be caused by the standpipe seal missing or lower recovery tank not on properly, on some models missing front panel. I would need more exact model info to assist further.

Suction Problem


There is a stand pipe seal where the bucket sits on, and if it isn't there or out of place could cause a suction problem like you said yours is doing. In the picture it is #10. The motor seal may have gone bad and is leaking # 15.

Blowing air out


Blowing warm air is normal for these machines. The suction problem is probably a result of the lid on the recovery tank not being installed correctly. Take the lid off the tank. If you look at the top/front of the tank, you will notice that there are two "tabs" at the corners. These tabs insert into the lid and hold the front of the lid in place. You then fold the lid down towards the back where there is a latch on the lid that locks the lid in place. It is a very common problem that people don't get the front engaged properly and the suction leaks out there and never gets to the floor. The motor will produce heat as a natural byproduct and is not unusual.
