Question about Hoover SteamVac F5914-900 SpinScrub Upright Vacuum
I fixed mine by removing the clear plastic covering and cleaning out the junk at the front edge and beyond with a butter knife. It now sucks up the water from the carpet.

I completed disassembled the Hoover FH50150 Power Scrub Deluxe carpet cleaner and found that the motor intake (bottom of the motor where there are fins that spin and create the suction) was jammed with carpet fibers. No idea how this happened but after I pulled all the dried fibers out with tweezers, the suction power returned.

I would almost guarantee the recovery tank is not seated properly. Trust me, I reseated the tank 5-10 times before giving up. I finally decided to give it one more try before forking out the money for another cleaner. I removed the clean water tank, turned the machine on (you could feel the air blowing out the sides on the bottom). With the machine still running, I unclipped the recovery tank and lifted it up (yes, you can do this, and it creates a very loud air thrust, but don't be scared), then I SLAMMED it back down into the seat and immediately I could tell the difference. The air stopped blowing from underneath and I could tell I had suction once again. I turned it off, put the clean water tank back on, and it worked like a charm. Trust me, you may be convinced that the recovery tank is seated properly.....LOL.....it ain't! Hope this helps!

Take out the duct in front of the tank (#3), the hose end will have a duct on it that you insert in its place. This provides the suction for the hose. Don't forget to put that duct you took out back in place, or you won't have suction when you use the steam cleaner.

Check the flexible hose that comes down from the handle. Look for a crack where it plugs into the base unit. (visible once you open the handle up and remove the cleanable catch basket)

I fixed my problem by repositioning the tunnel that is on the front of the pick-up tank. It had moved out of position and not allowing a tight seal. It is the white plastic piece that slides a little bit. Good luck.
