Question about Hoover F6212-900 / F6215-900 SteamVac Agility Upright Vacuum

Hoover agility--poor suction, still!

Hello, my agility has poor suction, it probably vacuums up 1/3- 1/2 of the amount of water put out. I have replaced the lower hose (the short one) b/c it had a tear, and that helped a bit, but not much. I've taken apart and checked all the seals, filters...I've basically taken everything apart except the motor! For instance, with the hose attachment, if I place my hand partially over the intake, water actually reverses direction in the hose. The suction coming from the black plastic part attached to the lower hose reminds me of the first cordless model dirt devil--weak, weak-- wouldn't move a penny from half an inch above it. What else can I check? Help! I'd really like to **** up ALL the filthy water instead of leaving half of it to dry on my carpets and upholstery!! One light-colored footstool (that I'd successfully cleaned before) actually had a dingy spot on it after I cleaned it--from the left over water! I'm desperate for your help...

When you remove the dirty water tank, on the machine, there is a screen that gets clogged and will prevent good suction, is this one clean? If it is, do you feel suction at that screen, if so then there is a problem with the tank. If no suction there, then you will have to check it over for a air leak or a bad seal.

Why is my hoover agility not sucking up water


It is likely the recovery tank lid is loose. This means the suction is loosing. Worst case is the suction pump is faulty.
Look at this manual in the troubleshooting section.

Why is the recovery tank on Hoover f6212-900 not filling up?


Hello! There are a few things that can cause the cleaner to lose suction. Please try these quick steps.

1. Remove the dirty water tank.
2. Clear the filter screen of any dirt or debris.
3. Turn the cleaner on, check your motor suction by the filter screen.
4.. Replace the dirty water tank making sure it is flush to the cleaner on all sides.
5. Lift up on top of nozzle and slide off cleaner.
6. Wipe debris off nozzle and front of cleaner with a damp cloth.
7. Replace dirty water tank.

If you felt suction by the filter screen your suction should now be restored. Hope this was helpful!

Hoover agility wont suck


There are 2 filters and if either one gets clogged, it will not suck up the water. One is from the bottom, it is red, pull it out far enough to clean it. The other one is behind the dirty water tank, remove the tank and you can see it on the wall covering the inlet for the suction. Clean it off, you should have suction now.

Hoover Agility, No Suction!!!


I had the same problem. Lower the handle to the floor and check the black spiral suction hose at the neck of the machine. The lower hose in my Hoover split. Check and see if yours has done the same thing. If so, the lower suction hose will have to be replaced. Hope this helps.

Suction


Opening that door and attaching the hose will let the suction go thru that hose. So if when you removed the hose, if that door isn't closed tight will cause you to have a suction problem It has to seal and have no leaks. The other thing when be a problem with the recovery tank not sealing when you put it back on. Other then that, any air leak will cause a suction problem.
