Question about Hoover SteamVac Carpet/Upholstery Deep Cleaner Vacuum

2 Answers

Have a Hoover Steam Vac Model F5866-900. Trying to clean carpet and it worked fine the last time I used it. Now, every time I turn it on the red "float" valve which controls air flow (I think) pops up tight and the Steam Vac won't **** up any water. This has happened before when the reservoir gets pretty full, but now it's happening with the reservoir empty.

    Brushes are turning. I also noticed that the "Cleaning Mode" indicator shows "tools" rather than "floor." Don't know if this could be related to my problem, and don't see how to select "floor".

    The second part of the response sounds like it relates to vacuum cleaners, not a Steam Vac.

The vacuum adapter is missing from the dirty water tank. Also check the intake part of the machine, it is clogged and must be cleared of hair and dirt (with the supplied plastic wand)

Its possible that you don't have the recovery tank lid on correctly.

Have you checked from the floor unit to see if the brushes are rotating if so equipped,then from there is the fan turning that provides the suction power to the collection area bag, possibly the new collection bag is bad as it needs a certain amount of air thru it or the fan cant send debris to the bag because of back pressure on the bag.

Tell us news.

Hoover Steam Vac leaks like a sieve


I have the same problem with my hoover steam vac, different model but same problem. So I have had it for 2 years and never used the attachments because the thing leaked out the bottom when i tried. So today I tried to find a solution online and found nothing. So I started toying with the thing and found a solution for my model and I hope it will work for everyone else. I don't have a stair attachment so this goes for the upholstery cleaning attachment. I noticed right where my upholstery attachment connects to get soap, there is a second hole that is covered by a white rubber seal when the cover for the connection area is closed. I put a plastic bag, or anything to seal it, into this hole to make a tight seal. Tried the machine and worked like a champ. So Would be nice if hoover supplied a plug for that, but oh well worked for me hope it works for others with a hoover steam vac.

Hoover Steam Vac Spin Scrub Carpet Cleaner won't...
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.

Steamvac


You might try running a solution of vinegar and water thru it to clean out the lines and spray nozzles. Also are the brushes turning when you are using it, that could also be the problem.
