Question about Hoover Vacuums

1 Answer

Hoover SteamVac Model F6056-900 SteamVac/SpinScrub. Indicator light and high pitch suction noise indicates that dirty water tank is full. However, water level indicator (yellow bobbing plastic thing) is at the bottom of the tank and there is no water in the tank. Have check all the hoses for clogs, none found. Checked water port from motor area to receptacle tank for clogs, none found. Fixed broken hose to upholstery wand with duck tape, (wire not broken, just cracked plastic hose). The only thing we did not feel comfortable doing was taking off the bottom plate. Couldn't figure out how to get it off without breaking the plastic retaining clips. Thanks. Lita

There are 2 filters, make sure they are clean, one is on the tank lid, the other is from the bottom, it is red, pull it out and clean it. If yours has a foam filter on the tank lid covering the yellow ball, make sure there is at least a 1/4 in. gap from the top. Also make sure that the lid in on and secured tightly.

Why does my hoover steam vac only blow out


Hey there! The cleaner blowing out air instead of sucking is an indication that the unit is not sealed off properly. Follow these brief steps to restore suction to your cleaner.

1. Remove the clean water tank.

2. Recline the handle and let the cleaner lay flat.

3. Remove the dirty water tank lid.

4. Reposition the front panel located on the outside of the tank in the center. It should be flush to the tank, even straight across and pushed down as far as it will go.

5. Assemble the dirty water tank lid back on from the front to the back. The lid should not lift up from the front.

Give it a try! The cleaner should now have suction. Hope this helps!

My steam vac was working...i thought the dirty water was full but it didn't make the hi pitched noise now that i think about it.....now it is not sucking up the dirty water.....i checked to make sure...


The most common reason for lack of pick up is that the lid is not fully seated on the dirty water tank. Be sure to hook the two tabs on the front of the lid, and then snap the rear latch into place. Another reason is that the duct on the front of the dirty water tank is missing. The duct may have been removed to install the hose, and was not put back in place. It is a square plastic piece, about the size of a slice of sandwich bread, which slides into the front of the tank. A far less common reason for no pick-up is that the seal that the tank sits on has fallen off the motor cover suction tube. You will see a round tube on the bottom of the dirty water tank. This sits on top of a large rubber seal on the motor cover when the tank is in place. Be sure the seal has not fallen down into the hood.

My SteamVac SpinScrub works fine then all of a sudden, the noise level of the vac seems higher and does not **** up water. I turn off vac then turn it back on, works good for awhile, then noisy, higher...


It sounds as if the ball in the tank in shutting down the suction prematurely. Be sure there is a gap of about 3/4 inch between the top of the filter inside the tank, and the lid of the dirty water tank. Without this gap, suction will pull the ball up too soon.

The suction stopped working after emptying dirty water and filling up with new water and cleaner


I have an older Hoover SteamVac Supreme #F5815 and I'm having trouble figuring out how to clean the part in the front that the dirty water goes thru before it gets to the tank. How do I clean it?

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.

Hoover steamvac shut off without making any noise


its very possible but just in case make sure the sensor is clean where you see it spinning that way you know the brushes are working open the plastic door and clean the net also if your dirt tank is full the suction will slow i am not sure if it will just stop but check that anyway too

One cause is the filter in the dirty water tank lid is pushed up too high, it needs to have a gap of 1/4 in or so. So check it, if it is up all the way, pull it down some.

I was having the same problem, the black seal under the tank that captures the water was broken, and it wasn't getting any suction.
