I had the same problem just before the impeller broke. Lower the handle and check the hose connection at the bottom is not broken. Turn the unit on with the handle down, then check the suction on the accessory hose, leae it disconnected. Take off the bottom container, and check the suction on the round intake tube (lower one towards the front), with the handle up and with the handle down. If the suction increases dramatically when the handle is lowered, the impeller is probably in it's self-destruct stage. (same as mine). Soon the impeller will break off, and BINGO no suction at all.

Good luck!

Hi there! The red float is there to let you know when your dirty water tank is full and needs to be emptied. If the float is popping up and the dirty water tank is empty or not full this is an indication that the dirty water tank filter is dirty and needs to be cleaned or replaced.

Hoover steam vac not sucking water back up i have super wet floors and no water in recovery tank


I think it is the gasket on top and bottom of the plastic chanel that takes the water up to the dirty water holding tank , Part of the rubber gasket is missing on both the top and bottom. This will alow
air to come in and thus you loose the suction to empty the water into the dirty water bin. My unit is hoover steam vac model F60220-900. I need to know where to get the gaskets.

This happens when the filter on the inside of the lid for the dirty water tank is pushed all of the way up. You need to leave a 1/4 in. gap from the top to the top of the filter.

Make sure that that the lid for the dirty water tank is locked on to the bucket, the other is make sure that the filter on the inside of the lid is not all the way up, needs to be a gap 1/4 inch or so.
