Most likely your vent for the suction container is plugged or the suction hose can of or is broken at the connection to the tank nozzle (very common on these. Clean the machine thoroughly, and check that all hoses are tight and connected.

    Well if its brand new take it back for a replacement.



    There are hoses, but they are inside. Then again like you said....if its brand new, then its under warranty and will be replaced for free, just take it back to the place of purchase.

    Why would you want to take something apart and void the warranty, when you can simply take it back for a free no hassle replacement?

    The time you are wasting you could have allready got it exchanged and back to cleaning.



    The fact that you stated its blowing and not sucking indicates that the main suction connection from the motor is disconnected and needs put back on...if you can find that (its right on the front of the motor) then you need it replaced.



    From the model# you gave that unit was made for a mass merchandiser such as walmart or target...they will replace it no hassle and you can be back to cleaning. you seem to be making it harder than it needs to be to resolve your problem.



    Go replace the cleaner, and when you get back the new one will **** out the moisture that was put there from the first machine.

When experiencing low or no suction at all, the machine's recovery tank may already be full. There also may be a clog at the hose, so simply detach the hose and remove any materials that have clogged up the opening.

Hello,

A motor generates power which powers a vacuum which, in turn, creates suction to lift debris. The most common areas of suction loss are within the hose itself, the vacuum bag, clogged rollers, broken vacuum belt or a faulty gasket. All of these problems will lead directly to the vacuum cleaner losing suction. I will advice you check any of the listed problem above to see where the problem lies and fix it.

Take care.

    I just had a problem with mine, I have this exact model. Turns out the front panel of the dirty water tank was clicked back into it's slot weird, causing me to get no suction and a weird blowing from my Steamvac. It's working perfectly now. If anything is askew on that tank, these will not work, which is a good thing or we'd be swimming in nasty water trying to clean.

My hoover spin scrub has no suction wont pick up water why?


No suction means somewhere in the intake side of the system you have either a blockage or an air leak.

When hose is attached to Hoover Spin Scrub 50 sucking and solution come out fine but solution is also pouring out the bottom of Hoover


Hello! Make sure that the cleaner is in the upright position when you are using the hose. This ensures that all solution goes through the hose and not the cleaner. Be sure the black tabs on connector coupler are pushed out prior to inserting into the stair cleaning connection. If you have done this and the cleaner is still leaking, we recommend taking to an authorized repair center for service. Follow the link to locate a service center near you.

Nilfisk gm 80 hoover has no power will start for a second and stop any idea wat could be wrong tried the plug but it was fine checked the connections they were fine so running out of ideas now


Its stopping because its trying so hard to suck that its overheating, so it cuts its own power. The airways are probably blocked. Check the bag is epty and clean, remove all hair and debris from all brushes and disconnect pipes, push a broom handle down then to clear any blockages.

My hoover spin scrub machine has stopped scrubbing. It still dispenses and pulls up the water, but the brushes don't move. I've checked the on off button for brush control and cycled it to off and back on,...


There is a filter on the front right hand side of my F5871-900 Hoover. If you remove the plastic covering and clean that filter (wet finger may do), you're Hoover will begin spinning again!

Posted by hoofbeats1 on Jul 01, 2008
My machine is a little more than a year old. I have used it about 5 times. It started leaking the third time I used it. The fourth time I took it out, the brushes would not spin (I did clean them and rinse them after use each time).
Now the engine screams and won't **** anything up. Do you have any suggestions? My last Hoover Steam Vac was great and lasted for 3 years! Hi,
I have a Hoover Dual V SteamVac F7425-900 that the brushes won't spin. The lint screen is clean & the brushes switch is in the on position.
It dispenses & sucks up the cleaning solution & water; just no brush action. Help


Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. The only thing that I can recommend is that you may have a bad switch, some vacs may have a broken belt or the drive mechanism inside the Hoover Dual V SteamVac F7425-900 in or by the brush assm section and is need of repair. Please check the trouble shooting section of the owner’s manual if you’re needing help and to save money. If you don’t have one then contact the Hoover factory cust serv. So, please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or in the yellow pages, or contact the factory phone number or website to further assist you with your questions.

I have the steam vac spinscrub upright. The brushes won't spin anymore.


Have you checked the lint screen? Your brushes are air driven if it's a Hoover Spin Scrub. There is a clear cover on the left side, when facinf from front. Remove this cover, about 3x5 inches and tapered, and clean the screen. Some units have a red or white screen that you can pull out from the bottom of the unit, left side just behind the brush block. Clean the screen then reinstall. Check that recovery tank is properly positioned- lack of seal means less suction which translates to brush block not turning.

Hoover steamvac clean surge turbo power 5200 attachment problems


That part to install in tank, is at the end of your hose. Take the lide off of the dirty water tank, on the front of the tank, there is a block that will slide out, then you can insert that part in its place. You have to have suction to make the brushes spin, so you just need to put the block on the end of the hose in the slot on the front of the tank. When down however, put that block you took out back, or your cleaner won't work right.
