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.

How to change the belt?


There is no belt on a Hoover SteamVac. The brushes are rotated by an air driven turbine. If the brushes aren't spinning, you most likely need to replace the turbine assembly.

My Hoover Steam Vac model f5915-900 no longer heats the floor to reduce drying time. I have cleaned the bottom of the machine where it says "heated cleaning." Anything else I can try? Thanks.


The SteamVac blows warm air from the motor into the carpet to help loosen oily types of soil. If the motor is running, the air will be exhausted. This system is not meant to reduce drying time, but only to enhance cleaning.

Check your filter screen insde the upper tank. if your model has a wrap around filter try to pull it down about 1/2" to maximize air flow.

Brushes donot turn when asked to shampoo


The brushes are turning by an air driven turbine. The turbine has a pivot bushing made of steel inside of it that gets rusty because of the water that is running through it. The turbine will have to be replaced. You can find a genuine hoover replacement part by following the link below.

Iam trying to use the upolhstery piece. Iam squeezing the button and no cleaner is coming out. Iam using by hoover steam vac deluxe spin.


Confirm that the hose is correctly connected to the clean water supply. If so, then remove it and, with the trigger operated on the hose, try to blow into the water feed connector. If you cannot pass air, the feed tube in the hose is clogged and must be cleaned (either by running faucet water into the brush end (with trigger pulled) or by using compressed air....

The scrub brushes dont spin anymore


The brushes are turning by an air driven turbine. The turbine has a pivot bushing made of steel inside of it that gets rusty because of the water that is running through it. The turbine gear will have to be replaced. You can access the turbine gear by removing the hood. You can find a genuine hoover replacement part by following the link below. Just find the model number of your Steamvac.

My steam cleaner is not extracting water but blowing air


Two checks: Assure the recovery tank lid is sealed to the tank, and assure the round rubber seal is in place under the hood where the recovery tank sits on the round cylinder. That seal assures the vacuum seals from the base to the tank.

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.

Hoover Steam Vac Model F5826-900


When you put the lid on the recovery tank, you have to be sure that the front of the lid is properly engaged into the two tabs on the top of the tank. With the lid installed, if you can lift the front of the lid off the tank with two fingers, then the lid is not on correctly. Also, make sure the square duct that goes into the front of the tank is in place. You have to remove this duct to install the hose for doing furniture but must replace it to go back to the floor function. By the way, the "blowing air" you refer to is normal. This is exhaust air from the motor and it is used to propel the solution onto the carpet.

Might just be a bad sensor, or it is coated over with dirt. If the tank lid has one of those round filters on it, make sure it isn't pushed all of the way up to the top, needs to have a 1/4 inch gap.
