Question about Hoover SteamVac Carpet/Upholstery Deep Cleaner Vacuum
I finally got my steamvac F5914-900 suction to work after I read someone review about it on amazon. Here is what that person suggested for suction problem and to my surprise it worked.
1. Any time you aren't getting suction, the first thing to do is check the dirty water bin. I re-seated the thing about ten times this morning, trying to figure out why suction on the unit had ceased. (The dirty water tank was bone dry.) I was frustrated because I was absolutely sure everything was seated properly, but was still getting no suction.
Finally, I pushed on the lid from the _sides_ rather than the back or front while attaching it to the tank, and it seated a little bit differently. Suction was restored!
2. To clean out the suction area, pour some hot water on a tile floor (NOT wood) and **** it up. Repeat until everything is flowing smoothly. Sometimes, reduced or minimal suction is due to gnarly clogs. Again, though, if you're getting NO suction, the culprit is probably the dirty water bin's lid.
I hope this helps.

I've had my steam vac for three whole days now (Hoover). Tried it out first thing on a area rug and it was great. Today, I had no suction. I, being usually very organized, have been going nuts trying to find out where I put the instructions. Apparently, I outwitted myself by putting them in such a memorable location I can't find them. Anyway, I came here for help and followed the suggestion about re-seating the waste water tank. I tried it a couple of times without success, then tried seating it without the lid on...pushing it down hard then latching it. You should hear a 'snap' sound on at least one side. Then put the lid on...and it worked! Also, on the front of the waste water tank there is a little baffle type thing that raises and lowers. Make sure that is pushed all the way down. Thanks for the solution and I hope everyone else with this problem will be successful.

What brand of vacuum and what style? Upright or canister? No suction is not enough info.
