Re: Hoover steam cleaner F5912-900 not sucking up water
Check to make sure that the lid locked down all of the way around. If yours has a foam filter on the inside of the recovery tank lid, make sure it has at least a 1/4 in. gap from the top. There is a filter, from the bottom, has a red casing, remove it and clean it. Also make sure that the removeable duct in front of the recovery tank is in place.

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.

Hello, I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. The attachment works on the suction from the Hoover Steam Vac and it’s either a straight suction tool or a revolving brush, check the front of the machine to see if the is a switch to turn on and odd, also before you attach the upholstery tool check the end of the hose for suction, it may be that your upholstery tool may be clogged or the brushes are not spinning and a part may be broken. Feel free to check with you local vac dealer or a new or a good used part if you find out what is wrong. 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. http://www.hoover.comTelephone Contact our Customer Service Department at 1.330.499.9499 Monday through Friday 8 a.m. - 7 p.m. EST Don – The Vac Man Go Ahead.Use Us.
Sounds like you have a broken water line, or it just came off. You would have to remove the top housing to get to the water lines. Or at the bottom of where the solution tank sits on, is the reservior asm. there are lines going there also. Bottom of the tank, the valve is stuck open. The trigger on the handle is stuck pushing down on the reservior asm.
One thing to check is the filter on the inside of the dirty water tank. It must have a 1/4 in. gap from the top to the top of the filter. Also make sure that the lid to the dirty water tank is on and sealing all the way around the tank.
