Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure.
You may have a clog in the bottom of the steam cleaner of which might cause it to clog, and you also have a V shape where the dirt comes up and into the recovery tank, so you need to back tack to see if all the gaskets are in place and if there is a clog to use a wire hanger to reach into the opening to remove any type o clog that might be there, also the tank might not be on the opening securely. If you have further problems, please contact your local vac dealer.
So, if you need further assistance, 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.

It will not pick up the water. Help !!!!!


Problem #1 - My 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. hope this helps ive copied it

Will not suck water out of carpet


take the tank off and make sure their is suction coming through the suction port. While you are there make sure the rubber seal is on it. Let us know if this is not the problem and we can go from there.

It isn't 'sucking up' the water when I pull the vacuum back towards me.


The lower (recovery) tank has an adjustable panel for attaching the hose accessory. If it is not in the right position you will lose your ability to vacuum up the water. When it is installed toward the front of the machine at all it will not vacuum water. Make sure that the panel is fully installed in the position that is closest to the back of the panel slot (toward where you stand to use the SteamVac).

Need instructions how to use Hoover Steam Vac Spin Scrub. I borrowed it from my Sister and she left it with no instruction book or letting me know how to operate it. I put water & cleaner in top tank....


I did have a solution in just a few minutes. Someone responded with a solution that gave me the website where I could go and print the manual in pdf, so did that, and checking instructions I was able to clean my carpets and get the shampooer back to my sister later the same day. I really appreciated your site and help I got for my problem. I found it on google. Thanks again!

Not working properly


Most of Rainbows water tank have a peg or a water fill line and should not be more then indicated. The separator should keep water out of the motor. Other then that you will need to have it checked.

NoSuckage !!!


Either the lid for the dirty water tank is not completely on or the filter inside has been pushed up all of the way to the top. You need to have a 1/4 in. gap from the top to the top of the filter.
