Ok 3 things to check before re-boxing it up.

1) make sure that the lid is on properly. it should go on with the 2 tabs at the front of the machine, then click into place at the back of the machine.

2) when you emptied it, sometimes the dirt channel will fall out. This allows for the suction to go between the dirty tank and the clear channel for the water to be sucked back up.

3) when you remove the dirty water tank again, look down inside the machine for a circular hole. there should be a rubber gasket on it to seal up the tank for your suction. If it has come loose or is missing, retrace your steps between the machine where it was last used and the sink or wherever you dumped out the dirty water.

Good luck,
Mark

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.

I have a hoover spinscrub 800. It washes great


in some cases when this happenes it's usually from a really bad filter or the squeege at the bottom of the nozzle. the squeege is what makes contact with the floor and suctions all of the water up. to take off. take off the nozzle and there will be (3) screws inside of the nozzle. once these screw are removed, the squeege can be removed. at hoover.com the replacement part # is 93001094. ( according to model # H3060 )
