There are six black screws holding this cover. That's all you need. Good luck.

No suction on my Pro heat steamer


You may want to check to see if the removable nozzle is correctly placed into its place. This is the plastic part where the water is sucked up through by the carpet cleaner. The nozzle notches must fit into the groove on the cleaner correctly and the metal bar need to snap back on top of the removable nozzle, Also sometimes if you have hair trapped in the nozzle or the bristle, it will affect the suction power of getting up the dirty water. The dirty water tank need to snap in place by making sure the top of the gray snaps on each side is over the top groove of the dirty tank on each side and the the gray snaps are pushed down and pushed into the tank to until it is snapped in place.
Super Simple answer could be: The Dirty water tank could have bubbles in it causing it not to **** too.

Why does my steamvac not suction the water up?


Typically there is a little red filter accessible from the bottom of the cleaner. Lay it down and flip it over to take a look. It's a little screen like filter. Large particles than can possibly cause a clog are filtered out there. Just pull it out (it will only come out part way) and clean the debris from it.

I have a Hoover Steam Vac also. Learned that trick the hard way. If that's not the problem (it usually is) then I will need the model number from your machine. Hopefully they didn't put it on the bottom of the machine where the numbers wear off. That's where mine was.

My brushes wo't spin on my spin vac dual v carpet cleaner


Solution: Remove the clear plastic cover located in front of the brush control switch (I used a butter knife). Locate the small screen and remove the dirt and hair from it with your fingernail or an old tooth brush. Restore the cover and you should be good to go.

It is not sucking up the water I have it together right, but I am not getting the dirty water out of the tank It is dry when the water is gone.


Try checking the lint filter to fix your suction problem. It is located in the top clear plastic section (the one with the dial to switch from tool to floor use). It is a small (1 inch square) red plastic filter with a little door on it. Flip open the door and it is probably clogged with hair, carpet fibre, etc.. Clean it out and you should have proper suction once again.

Bissell Pro Heat 8910 clogged?


Why the motor sounds muffled I am not sure. When the water is sucked up, it goes directly into the tank. The motor only creates the suction so it can do that. There should be a filter on the rim of the recovery tank lid, is it clean? Other then pulling the top cover off, and then the motor cover so you can inspect the motor, I really don't have a good answer for you. I t may be that that clump of hair when down the chute and into the fan, I have seen that happen with vacuum motors before.

Hoover steam cleaner F5805 no manual


the plastic wand helps, but I have found that when I pick the entire unit up and take it to the sink and run water in the top of the plastic cover it cleans it out better than anything. I get alot of pet hair up also and it looks awful -- but the wand only cleans out the hair -- the dirt needs to be flushed out some time too

Poor suction...continued


Wish I had it in my shop, it is hard to figure your problem. I do know that you must have something out of place and you may have to take it apart to find it. You may feel some suction there at the top of the clear nozzle, but maybe it isn't strong enough to pull anything up, but you may have a problem witrh it not seating all of the way on both sides, and you ,maynot feel much there anyways. Check at the bottom where the tank sits. is the seal ok. With the tank off, is there alot of suction at the filter screen? If there is, then the problem wouldn't be inside. Is the hose door on the back closed tightly? How old is this unit, if less then a year, then it is under warranty. There is an automatic shutoff for suction when it senses that the tank is full, maybe the problem is there. I believe it is the float inside the tank.

Hoover Steam Vac Model #5899-100


there is a single screw at the top of that shield (under the dirty water tank) and then there is 2 screws on the bottom that you unscrew and the shield will slide right off and you wipe it out and put it back on.
