I think that you mean the little white/grey/sometimes clear panel that fits on the dirty water tank.

Remove the lid of the dirty water tank, and slide it down the front of the machine to the clear housing below. It will only fit in one way as it is somewhat triangular shaped.

if this is not the piece in question, the manual is here for you :

Good luck.

It will not pick up the water. Help !!!!!


Problem #1 - My Steamvac is not Sucking!
If your Hoover Steamvac was working properly and suddenly it is not sucking any water, nine times out of ten, the culprit is the lid on the lower recovery tank. The lid on the lower tank (or dirty water tank) needs to hinge at the front and snap down at the back in order to creat a proper seal. If the lid snaps on but is not locked on at the front, you will not get any suction. Simply take the lid off, and ensure that when you put it back on, it must hinge on the front tabs of the tank.
Problem #2 - My Steamvac is still not Sucking!
Right now you are thinking that you shouldn't have let your brother borrow your Steamvac. And you are right, because he used the hose attachment and returned it with the hose still attached to the front of the tank (some models only). Now when you try to use it there isn't any suction. In this case, you are missing your tank duct. On models where the stair/upholstery hose attaches to the front of the recovery tank, one must remove a square plastic piece in order to attach the hose. This square plastic tank duct must be replaced before the Steamvac will operate properly in the upright position. hope this helps ive copied it

It isn't 'sucking up' the water when I pull the vacuum back towards me.


The lower (recovery) tank has an adjustable panel for attaching the hose accessory. If it is not in the right position you will lose your ability to vacuum up the water. When it is installed toward the front of the machine at all it will not vacuum water. Make sure that the panel is fully installed in the position that is closest to the back of the panel slot (toward where you stand to use the SteamVac).

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?

Steamvac will not **** up water


Check the lid on the lower tank. The front of the lid lips over the tank to lock it on and snaps in the back. You probably haven't locked the front edge down

My steamvac will spray out water


Assure the ring gasket is in place under the hood. A round rubber gasket must be in place on the round tube under the hood where the recovery tank sits to connect the vacuum from the motor to the round tube on the bottom of the tank.

Hoover Superscub attachments won't work


It sounds to me like you have the water hose plugged in, but not the hose block. In the front of the dirty water return tank there should be a removable square plastic piece. Remove the lid and slide that piece out. Replace wth the back end of the hose receptacle. If you have already done this, then here is your problem: when you return the lid to the top of the return tank, you must roll it on from the front(there are brackets the lid hooks under) to the back and listen or feel or the "click" your tank is now ready to pick up the dirty water from your hose. let me know if this helps!

Make sure that the lid for the recovery tank is locked down all of the way around. Sometimes it doesn't catch on the back. There also may be a foam filter inside of the recovery tank lid. Make sure there is at least a 1/4 in. gap from the top. One other filter is from the bottom, it has a red frame, pull it out far enough to clean it. One other thing is the duct installed in front of the recovery tank, if not, no suction.

I can't seem to figure out how to use it =(

Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. Hoover F5807 SteamVac Wet/Dry Vacuum. Well, there are 2 tanks, one is the water solution tank that is on top and the other is the water recovery tank of which is on the bottom. You use the trigger assm to release the water and the Hoover SteamVac works the best on the pull back. You can spry the water going forward but pull it back very slowly and let the brushes do the scrubbing for you and the dirty water pickup. There is a ball in the dirty water pup tank that will rise to the top and stop the water from coming in, @ that point you need to empty and rinse out the recovery tank and re-install. If you run out of solution the top tank cap or cover is the measuring cup to determine the amount of solution – usually it is one cap full and extremely hot water, there is a switch for the carpet and the upholstery, if the handle is in the released position then the brushes down below should be moving – just look in the brushes window and see if they are moving – if the handle is in the upright position then you can remove the attachment hose and then use the attachment and the revolving brushes will stop. I hope this will help you in working with the Hoover SteamVac. If not contact the Hoover Co and get an owner’s manual and give them the model # and serial #. 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.
