Depending of your model, some have a duct that sits in front of the recovery tank, if yours has this, is the duct in place? Most have a foam filter on the inside of the recovery tank lid, make sure that there is at least a 1/4 in gap from the filter to the top of the tank lid. There is another filter you can get to from the bottom, it has a red frame and you can pull it ou far enough to clean it. One other thing is that the tank lid isn't latched in the back of the tank. Any of these will cause no suction.

Shark steam mop s3501 no steam


On these steam mops you have to use distilled water, if you use tap water and do not have

a water softner, the feeder tubes that pull the water to create steam will be reduced in size

and clog up. the only other option is to take it apart, and replace the hoses, i used some

small fuel line with spring clamps that i bought at an auto supply, it works! good luck!

The water and soap are not coming out of the cleaner. It is heating and pulling air back through.


Related issue: In general, if plain water is not run through the system (and drained out!) after each use, the water can leave "boiler scale" in small inlet and/or outlet tubes on the heater (up inside the handle). If it fills the inlet/outlet tube, this will stop ALL water flow, even if you're not using the 'heat' function, because the water goes through the heater whether the heater is on or off. I was able to get the flow going by digging out the corrosion from inside the inlet/outlet tubes on the heater where the clear, plastic, inlet and outlet hoses attach. It's been working fine for a few years since the fix.

Where is the STEAM in the Hover SteamVac F5914-900??


There is none kind of false advertising it does not even heat the water. You just put hot water and shampoo and go.

Bissel proheat is not sucking up water


There is a oblong black seal that sits where the tank lip and the clear noozle window come together, is it there. Also make sure the filter in the tank lid is clean.

No steam


I used the straw to prime the lines and 50/50 mix of vinager and water and it worked perfectly. I then mixed the water container with the same mix and ran it through the system. All works fine now.

HOOVER STEAM CLEANER PROBLEM


The soap dispenser is supposed to be attched to the water tank. That grey piece, if it is round with 2 small ears on it is the metering plate, it controls the flow of water. It sits on the table that the tank sits on, insert it into the hole and turn to lock it in place.

Is it running out of the bottom of the tank, or at the bottom of the machine. If at the bottom, you have a water line off. If at the bottom of the tank, there is a water seal that the tank sits on, may have to replace that.
