Proheat sprays the water but doesn't suck it back up


Your lid is not on tight on the water collection tank it can't create a section to pull the water out. Usually take it off and putting it back on will solve the problem. good luck& God bless

You can buy little sachets of nice smelly stuff to put inside Henry. Most supermarkets have them. Makes the carpets smell nice too.

Empty dirty water tank, replaced it and then started to clean again. It did not **** up the water.


The only reason for no pick up is an air leak. The most likely problem is that the lid is not properly seated on the dirty water tank. A less common problem is that the round rubber seal the tank sits on is out of place.

My Hoover Steam Vac Spin Scrub aw/ Clean Surge


Greetings,

A few more things that you can try on your SteamVac. First remove the dirty water solution tank from the machine completely. You should see where the solution tank was just sitting, a plastic casing with a whole in it. This is actually where the suction from the motor goes into. Turn the machine on and feel the hole there for any suction coming out. Did you feel suction coming from the hole? If yes, then your issue is going to be something with the dirty solution tank, because without the tank it's sucking fine. If you didn't feel any suction from this hole, it may indicate that there is something more serious that needs to be taken care of.

One other place you may look on your machine (as long as the upholstery hose for stairs and furniture is already attached to the machine, and you don't have to hook anything up to the dirty water tank to use the attachments) while the dirty solution tank is out of it, is where the attachment hose makes connection with the vacuum. If you recline the handle down while you have the dirty water tank out, look in the back of the handle housing for a hose that enters the housing 3/4 down the housing. Now follow the hose on the inside of the handle not the outside, follow it up to the point where it goes into the neck, near where the suction hole is. Right at the end of the hose, right before the hose cuff, is this ripped, or damaged here?

Please feel free to request a clarification to this repair if you still need addtional help. If you can leave me the model number exactly that would help me help you, lol. I hope that this was helpful to you. If this was helpful to you, may you please click the helpful Thumbs Up Icon in the lower right hand corner of this repair?

Thank you so much,

How does lower and upper buckets work . is it the dirty water suppose to go in lower bucket or what . as i am trying to use this vac i am not able to


The Upper tank is for hot, clean water, with carpet cleaning solution mixed in at 5 ounces/gallon.

The Lower tank is the dirty water ecovery tank, hooked to the nozzle on the hood to **** up the water from the carpet.

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 Steam Vac clean water tank valve leaks


a) make sure that there is not a place for a stair attachment. If
there is make sure air is not leaking through where the attachment goes
on because of damaged or misplaced fitting.

b) some steam vacs leave water behind them and **** up in front of
them. If you just walked forwad with the steam vac nothing would be
sucked into the tank.

c) try taking your finger off the trigger and using the steam vac. If
the tank still empties the trigger is stuck open.

d) try putting clean water in the dirty water tank only and using it on
a dry rug. If water goes somewhere from the dirty water tank you have
a leak.

e) take apart what you can and look at the parts. A good visual
inspection can solve many of these types of problem if you are careful
not to miss anything.

Hoover Steam Vac with Rinse


The bottom tank is for the dirty water, the top tank, it has a small tank attached to it for the shampoo, clear hot water goes in the bigger tank. Then turn it on, squeeze the trigger as you pull it backwards. It will spray and vacuum up at about the same time.
