Check the lid on the dirty water tank. This is a very common problem. If the lid is not engaged in the tabs of the tank, the lid will not sit down properly and all the suction will leak out between the lid and tank.

Make sure that that the lid for the dirty water tank is locked on to the bucket, the other is make sure that the filter on the inside of the lid is not all the way up, needs to be a gap 1/4 inch or so.

I had the same problem just before the impeller broke. Lower the handle and check the hose connection at the bottom is not broken. Turn the unit on with the handle down, then check the suction on the accessory hose, leae it disconnected. Take off the bottom container, and check the suction on the round intake tube (lower one towards the front), with the handle up and with the handle down. If the suction increases dramatically when the handle is lowered, the impeller is probably in it's self-destruct stage. (same as mine). Soon the impeller will break off, and BINGO no suction at all.

Good luck!

if the dirty water lid isn't on correctly then you will not get any sucktion to **** up the dirty water. the best way to put the lid on would be to put it at a 45 degree angle. put the tabs thats on the front of the recovery tank inside the lid and push down untill you hear a click. if you can lift up on the recovery tank lid in the front, then you don't have it on correctly and it's not making a seal. hope this helps. if it doesn't write me back. try this first.

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.

Hoover steam vac spin scrub won't suction the water up.


I fixed my problem by repositioning the tunnel that is on the front of the pick-up tank. It had moved out of position and not allowing a tight seal. It is the white plastic piece that slides a little bit. Good luck.

Hoover steam vac not sucking water back up i have super wet floors and no water in recovery tank


I think it is the gasket on top and bottom of the plastic chanel that takes the water up to the dirty water holding tank , Part of the rubber gasket is missing on both the top and bottom. This will alow
air to come in and thus you loose the suction to empty the water into the dirty water bin. My unit is hoover steam vac model F60220-900. I need to know where to get the gaskets.

If this is a Hoover Steam vac, the turbine which drives the brushes is bad. If not a Hoover, then what is it, they are different, need brand and model number.

Problems with the Hoover Steam vac Heated carpet cleaner


This happens when the filter on the inside of the lid for the dirty water tank is pushed all of the way up. You need to leave a 1/4 in. gap from the top to the top of the filter.

Steam vac will not pick up dirty water


My Hoover Steamvac problem isn't with the bruches--it's with the suction. Dirty soapy water stays in the carpet instead of being returned to one of the holding tanks.
