Check that the attachment lid is closed properly and the rubber seal is still intact. This needs to be closed or you will lose suction. As above, check the recovery lid is sealed all the way round, it's easy to think it is when it isn't. Make sure all the clips are in place at the back and the front clips closed.

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 followed the trouble shooting advice for a Hoover steam vac that has non-spinning brushes. Turbine ordered and replaced. Female receptacle still is not spinning. What now?


There could be several reasons for this. Remember that the brushes will not turn unless the dirty water tank is in place. Also the handle must be released and tipped back. It is also possible that the rubber seal that the lower tank sits on is missing. If you look down into the motor area, there should be a large, round rubber seal that the lower tank sits on. Look for the round tube that protrudes from the bottom of the dirty water tank. This tube sits against the seal. If it is missing it will need replacement.

The panel came off of my SteamVac water tank, and I can't figure out how to get it back in! HELP!


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.

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

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!

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.

I read the manual and tried my new Hoover, the brushes spin, but the waters not going to the bottom tank, what does that mean and what can i do?

I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure.
You could have a bad water release valve on your water tank of which holds the water, the trigger assm might not be connected, bent or broken. Check the trouble shooting owners manual --- also there are hoses that could be crimped or bent, or clogged or not connected, but it is my guess it is the water release valve. Try to back track the water from the holding tank and test all the valves on the system and you might find the problem by the process of elimination. Feel free to contact you local vacuum cleaner dealer in the yellow pages or contact the Hoover Co @ the information listed below:

Won't be any steam, just the hot water that you put into the tank.

Steamvac quit spraying


Check the seal that the clean water tank sits on, may have come loose. The filter inside the dirty water tank has been pushed up too far, needs to have a 1/4 in. gap from the top to the top of the filter.
