Question about Hoover SteamVac Carpet/Upholstery Deep Cleaner Vacuum

1 Answer

Catch tank empty

First time using Hoover Steamvac. Follow instruction to clean rug. Looked like everything was working. Rug looked cleaner. Used about 1/2 of cleaner tank. When I went to empty the catch tank, it was dry. What could be wrong? I thought I went slow.

Which you had posted your model number, If you have a foam filter on the inside of tyhe recovery tank lid, make sure there is at least a 1/4 in. gap between the lid and the top of the filter. Make sure that the lid is locked down in the back, try to push it up, if it is locked it won't move. If yours has a place for a duct in front of the recovery tank, make sure it is there and pushed all of the way down.

Rug doctor won't spray water


I had the same thing happen to mine. I looked at the hose in the water tank and the screen at the end if the hose was slimy and clogged. I took the screen off and cleaned it up, put everything back together and it works like new again. Only 2 screws and a screen.

When trying to scrub rug, the cleaning fluid runs out but the scrubber will not **** it back up. My rug is soaked!


You have an air leak. This is almost always caused by the lid not being correctly installed on the recovery tank. Remove the lid, hook it in the back, and snap the front latch in place. A less common problem is that the square duct on the front of the lower tank has been removed to use the attachment hose and not put back in the tank after use.

Hi, empty the recovery tank of the Hoover SteamVac if the cleaner fails to pick up dirt. Once the tank is full, many Hoover models have an automatic shutoff that stops the cleaner. If the does not resolve the pickup issue, check the hose of the machine and remove any blockage.

Examine the water tank if water does not dispense from the SteamVac. It could be empty and need of a refill, or you may not have locked the dispenser firmly in place. The detergent tank should also be looked at and filled if empty.

Take care

Not sucking up dirty water


The F5914 has a lid that must be engaged with the tank in order for the suction to reach the floor. Gently lift the front of the lid on the tank and if it lifts up, you haven't engaged the two tabs on the tank into the lid. Remove the lid and make sure the tabs on the tank fit into the grooves on the lid and snap it closed. This should solve your problem. Also, make sure that the removable duct in the front of the tank is in place. It is removed when the hose is used, but must be replaced when the machine is used on the carpet.
