Upholstery attachment won't extract water

When I use the upholstery attachment, it will spray the solution but won't extract the water from my couch. I've only had it about a year and it's worked fine until about a week ago, I don't know if there's any regular maintenance I'm supposed to be keeping up with.

SOURCE: No water/soap to carpet, but upholstery attachment works fine.

If the hose is spraying, then the pump is working. The pump is a common problem which is why the repair shop assumes that it is the problem, but their repair cost is way out of line. The more likely cause could be the heater. The heaters on these machines have been problematic in the past. The heater is heating water and soap and quite often they will plug up and then the water will not flow. The heater is used for the floor spray but not the hose. It is also possible that the floor spray jets are plugged or that the indicator dial is fowled with something and will not allow solution to flow. I would suggest finding a different shop to take it to and make sure they find the trouble before repairing and give you a more resonable estimate. This should fall somewhere in the $60.00 repair range.

Cleaning solution does not come out


When you are using upholstery hose the water/solution does not go through the heater so see if water sprays out of upholstery attachment (this may take a little while for water to travel the distance). If it does than you know your pump is good. If water does spray out of hose but not out of bottom of unit it will more than likely be a clogged heater unit caused by water calcification or detergents. This can be cleaned out however it is not an easy job. And, if the heat insolators are not placed exactly in place, it can lead to plastic melting.

Water leaks out under the unit when using the upholstery attachment?


You may wish to check and see if the leak is where the small water supply hose is plugged in to the cleaner base. That connecction supplies water from the product, to the spray end on the upholstery hose.

I have used my Steam Vac for carpeting, but until today, had never tried cleaning upholstery with the spin-scrub brush. I spent a miserable afternoon trying to control the spray, which seemed to go...


I can sympathize. My vac came with two handheld attachments. I have better luck with the handheld attachment that doesn't have the spin-scrub pads. To keep the water from going all over the place, you need to keep the part the you hold only about 1 inch from the surface of the upholstery; if you hold it higher it gets everywhere; if you hold it lower the spray doesn't spread out wide enough and it just makes big water droplets that roll down the upholstry.

If the vac isn't sucking up the water, it is likely you have it set up wrong. Take off the attachment; if you put your hand over the open end of the tube, do you feel suction? When you are using the handheld attachments there is a rectangular piece you remove (attached to the dirty water tank) and you stick the rectangular part from the hose in there. If you are getting suction but it's just not sucking up any water try these 1) maybe you aren't laying down enough water, spray it more heavily OR 2) you need to **** up the water right after you lay it down. Don't let it soak in for more than a few seconds.

good luck!

No suction from upholstery attachment


http://www.hoover.com/pdfs/manuals/F5914900.pdf

Problem: Low suction
Problem: Clean solution won’t
dispense
Problem: Brushes/brush indicator
won’t rotate during floor cleaning
Possible cause
Possible solution
• Not firmly plugged in
• Plug unit in firmly
• No voltage In wall plug
• Check fuse or breaker
• Blown fuse/tripped breaker
• Replace fuse/reset breaker
Possible cause
Possible solution
• Recovery tank full/automatic
shut off engaged
• Remove and empty recovery tank
• Blockage In tool on end of hose
• Remove tool and clear blockage
• Recovery tank lid not on
correctly
• Make sure lid is on securely
• Recovery tank front panel not
replaced after stair or upholstery
cleaning
• Replace recovery tank front panel
(page 14)

Before using tool
It may be necessary to remove air from
the system (“prime the pump”) so the
clean solution will flow to the tool. Follow
these steps:
1. Attach tool to hose and turn the carpet
cleaner ON.
2. Put the tool on a hard surface or
against your hand to block off the suction.
3. Wait a few seconds (can take up to
15 seconds). Then squeeze the trigger
and begin cleaning.

GOODLUCK!!!!

How do I attach upholstery parts?


Remove the main head and put on the air guard.
Take of the bag assembly and attach the hose.
Mix up the solution in the "Suds o gun".
Attach this to the end of the hose.
When you switch on, foam will dispense from the gun.
Gently sponge this into the furniture.

Hoover SteamVac Model F5887-920 - hand attachment won't spray


I have a model I got in 2001. I found that the water sprayer on the hand tool is driven by a little turbine that relies on suction from the main vacuum motor. I eventually found that the spindle inside the turbine had separated and hence the hand-tool wouldn't spray. I glued it together but that only fixed the problem until it broke again. I am going to buy another (about $23).

Cleaning uphoustry


Furniture cleaning isn't a science: try out a few techniques before choosing the one that is right for your belongings. This step-by-step guide explains how to clean a sofa:
  1. Before using any upholstery cleaning products, vacuum the sofa or chair first to remove as much surface dirt and dust as possible. Be sure to use the correct attachments to avoid damage to the material - a soft brush attachment is ideal.
  1. Spot Clean. Using baby wipes or vinegar poured onto a strong microfiber cloth, apply to any obvious stains, wiping gently as you go. Remember to test the upholstery cleaning products on an inconspicuous area first.
  1. Overall Clean. Using soapy water and a microfibre cloth, gently wipe your sofa with the solution, allowing it to soak into the fabric and tackle the dirt beneath the surface. You only want to use a very small amount of water - don't saturate the material.
  1. Dry. Some people use a hairdryer to quickly dry a sofa, but allowing it to dry naturally is always the better option, if you have the time. To speed things up, open windows and allow the breeze to help with the drying process.

Wont extract checked the filter, it isnt up all the way, and took apart and didnt find an obstruction


I assume you are talking about no spray. Check the rod inside the handle, amke sure it is moving up and down when you squeeze the trigger, If it is, is water coming out the bottom of the tank when you push in the valve, if it does, then the reservior asm. ( the tank sits on it) maybe bad and will have to be replaced. If yours has a foam filter on the lid of the dirty water tank, make sure there is a 1/4 or so gap from the top of the filter to the top of the tank lid.

Stair and upholstery attachment


After tearing things down and inspecting the handle switch, etc., I found that my problem was detergent. It sets idle for a while or doesn't get used very much and the detergent dries and actually clogs the inside of the hose. I cleared it by fully extending the hose, pressing the button and allowing the clog to clear itself. The built in heater helped out a lot once the flow started again. I used a can of compressed air to provide a little blow back to get things moving but not too much or the pump would be damaged. Remove the tool and hold the nozzle into an empty cup while depressing the trigger. A warm vinegar solution clears things out nicely. It's kinda hard for this piece go defective but easy to overlook when wrapping up and storing the unit. Remember, clean water rinse with 1/4 cup white vinegar. There, I fixed it and wasn't even broke!
