Question about Hoover SteamVac F5914-900 SpinScrub Upright Vacuum
My Hoover Steam Vac Spin Scrub w/ Clean Surge won't suck up the cleaning solution/liquid from the carpet. Brushes are spinning but there doesn't seem to be any suction and no liquid at all is coming into the waste tank. I tried all the trouble-shooting fixes (reseated the lowerecovery tank w/ front of hinged lid on tight; cleaned dog hair off the tiny filter screen; made sure the rubber seal is inplace on top of the duct opening under the recovery tank) but to no avail. Even after a thorough vacuuming dog hair still blows away from the shampooer as I go so could hair have gotten into the unit somehow and mucked things up? The brushes appear to be clean but I couldn't figure out how to remove the brush housing to look underneath.

A few more things that you can try on your SteamVac. First remove the dirty water solution tank from the machine completely. You should see where the solution tank was just sitting, a plastic casing with a whole in it. This is actually where the suction from the motor goes into. Turn the machine on and feel the hole there for any suction coming out. Did you feel suction coming from the hole? If yes, then your issue is going to be something with the dirty solution tank, because without the tank it's sucking fine. If you didn't feel any suction from this hole, it may indicate that there is something more serious that needs to be taken care of.
One other place you may look on your machine (as long as the upholstery hose for stairs and furniture is already attached to the machine, and you don't have to hook anything up to the dirty water tank to use the attachments) while the dirty solution tank is out of it, is where the attachment hose makes connection with the vacuum. If you recline the handle down while you have the dirty water tank out, look in the back of the handle housing for a hose that enters the housing 3/4 down the housing. Now follow the hose on the inside of the handle not the outside, follow it up to the point where it goes into the neck, near where the suction hole is. Right at the end of the hose, right before the hose cuff, is this ripped, or damaged here?
