Here is a list to go by for no suction problems that you can follow along with they are common proble Problem #1 Steamvac is not Sucking!

If your Hoover Steamvac was working properly and suddenly it is not sucking any water, nine times out of ten, the culprit is the lid on the lower recovery tank. The lid on the lower tank (or dirty water tank) needs to hinge at the front and snap down at the back in order to creat a proper seal. If the lid snaps on but is not locked on at the front, you will not get any suction. Simply take the lid off, and ensure that when you put it back on, it must hinge on the front tabs of the tank.

Problem #2 – My Steamvac is still not Sucking!

Right now you are thinking that you shouldn’t have let your brother borrow your Steamvac. And you are right, because he used the hose attachment and returned it with the hose still attached to the front of the tank (some models only). Now when you try to use it there isn’t any suction. In this case, you are missing your tank duct. On models where the stair/upholstery hose attaches to the front of the recovery tank, one must remove a square plastic piece in order to attach the hose. This square plastic tank duct must be replaced before the Steamvac will operate properly in the upright position. So call you brother on the phone tell him to find it, or call me at the number at the top of the screen to order one.

Problem # 3 – My Steamvac isn’t sucking very well and the brushes are spinning slowly

Most the likely, the culprit here is under the recovery tank. Standing behind the steamvac with the lower tank off, to the right and front you will notice a round duct opening about 2 inches in diameter. This should have a rubber seal on it. If it is missing, look under the hood of the steamvac it may have fallen forward there. Otherwise, give me a call to get another one.

Problem #4 – My Steamvac brushes are not spinning or are spinning very slowly

Believe it or not they may just need to be cleaned! You can remove the rack of brushes by pinching the tabs on either side and pulling it out. The plastic is clear so you can see if the brushes and gears are gummed up with hair and carpet fibres. Rinsing usually works best. There are two more things to check if this doesn’t solve the problem. First, check that the switch for the brushes is set to high. Second, look under the clear plastic piece near the switch (it is removable). There is a small screen that collects lint and hair (like a dryer screen!). This is the air intake for the turbine that drives the brushes. Clean it off and your back in business.

Problems #5, #6, #7 – My Hoover Steamvac doesn’t turn on, leaks, or is really noisy

Unfortunately, these problems are usually a bit more complicated and need professional service. At Clean Machines we offer a free estimate/repair ceiling service which gives you assurance that repair bills don’t get out of hand.

Steam vac won't **** water


check to see if the recovery tank lid is on correctly. if this is not on, the machine will not **** up the dirty water from the carpet. all you will get is suction that is chopy when it comes up instead of more like a flow.

When squeezing trigger and Depressing Clean surge Button on Upper handle of the Hoover Steam Cleaner F5914-900 there is no & quot; snap& quot;
indicating trigger rod is in place. Everything else went in as instructed. The screws and bolts were no problem
this concerns me because the main complaint I read about this model was leaking from the trigger and clean surge and the problem was not getting the rod in place. No matter how many tries or people (three) it still doesn't occur.


Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure.
I would suggest getting a schematic, owners manual or product breakdown to see what you are doing wrong or to check with the Hoover tech support line to see if the can either mail, fax or email the schematic to you so that you can complete your service job. There is something definitely happening with the serv job that we are overlooking and the schematic or product breakdown will help in the serv job you are doing, it sounds to me that you are doing things right but there could be another broken part or while installing the current part may not have been install properly, or is in need of an adjustment. Feel free to contact your local vac dealer or contact the Hoover Tech Line listed below:
