For the attachments, turn the knob on the left to tool setting, that will open the valve at the top to allow suction thru the hose, then squeeze the trigger to spray. Close it when you are done or you won't have suction down below.

If the water is running out, either the valve at the bottom of the tank isn't working right or youy have a water line off, probably have to take off the top cover to check that out.

When my hover suffered a similar issue i found the problem to be a little stone caught in the part you described as a water wheel, however later i found that one of the connecting hoses from the front of the hover had a little blockage , later, i actually washed the filters and left them to dry over night wrapped in a towel on a warm heater, it was back to normal , the last hover gave in as the motor started to slowly give in , it could be this

No suction at floor section only on hand held part


clean the hoses and any part connecting the actual vacuume to the floor attachment.... probably clogged or not getting a good seal....if the motor sounds like its going faster (higher pitch) then its clogged up.....

Can't get the roller to spin


i suggest taking hose off and declogging it by using a water hose to make sure its free of debris. Plus check your belt first take off bottom plate the you'll be able to tell if belt is broken which it sounds like it is.
if belt is good and hose is clear and still brush wont spin then your brush motor needs replacing. hope this helps.

Hey Julie,

Hopefully we will get this solved together.

To me, this problem sounds like either the filters are choked up and cannot breathe, OR.... the bagless cannister is not quite sitting in the machine properly.
Honestly, I am more leaning towards the cannister not quite in properly, that is assuming that everything is out of the suction hose.

Start with the process of elimination. Remove and clean the filters with a paint brush or other brush. Get as much dirt and debris off of them as you can and replace them into the machine.
Turn on the machine, and using only the hose attachment, feel if the suction is there. If not, try a re-alignment of the cannister and check the hose. a small coin or marble running through the hose will tell you if there is still a blockage in there.
Where the attachment hose connects to the bottom of the machine could also be blocked up as well. This will also give the same effect of the dirt blowing out the bottom of the machine.

Lastly, it is also quite possible that the belt has stretched or worn out. This too will contribute to it not picking up.
Let me know if this helps, and we will go from there.
Good luck,
Mark

I cleaned one day the next time the suction is sucking down instead of sucking up. Will not pick up the water off the carpet.


Greetings from GoVacuum,

It sounds as if you may have a loose seal where the dirty water solution tank sits.

This is a circular gasket that can be seen only when the dirty water tank has been removed. I have attached a parts diagram to a very common Hoover SteamVac model which looks like it's the one that's pictured in your question.

Look at part number 39 on the diagram. Make sure tha gasket is there, and is tight. If it is,then check out part 7 as well. This is a slide piece that slides in and out when you put in the attachment hose. If this part is missing, then the Steamer will not have any suction unless you hook up the attachment hose.

There is a newer style out where the hose is already connected, and you don't have to slide off the part 7. If you have one of these take off the dirty water tank, and press the handle release all the way down so the machine is flat on the floor. Then follow where the attachment hose goes down into the base of the SteamVac, is the hose here cracked or ripped at all?

If you can please give me your model number, or have any other questions please feel free to call me or email me.
