Question about Hoover SteamVac F5914-900 SpinScrub Upright Vacuum

3 Answers

The suction on my Hoover Spin Scrub 50 is suddenly not working. This is the 2nd or 3rd time I've used it and until now it has done a great job. But now it leaves my carpets soaking wet with no hope of drying and no dirty water is being suctioned into the dirty water tank. Help!

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)

SOURCE: hoover steam vac spin scrub won't suction the water

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.

How do I hook up the upholstery attachment on a Hoover Spin Scrub 50?


To connect the upholstery tool, first remove the clean water tank by pressing down on the handle and pulling the tank forward. Remove the hose from the storage rack. Press down on the handle release lever and lower the handle to the ground. Unlatch the back part of dirty water tank and remove the lid. Pull the dirty water tank's front panel up about an inch and rotate the panel to parallel with the floor. Replace the panel with the converter and slide it halfway down until it is firmly in place. Pull the collar on the connecting tube towards the tube so that the black tabs are fully extended. Open the door on the hood labeled Stair/Upholstery cleaning connection and press the round solution tube onto the round projection. Press the collar firmly to ensure that the tube is connected. Replace the tank in a hinge-like manner and place the lid under the tabs on the front of the tank. Rotate the lid down onto the tank.

Now slide the upholstery tool on the connector of the hose until the tab locks into place.

The manual for the Spin Scrub 50 is available on the Hoover product page: http://hoover.com/products/details/fh50044/steamvac-spin-scrub-50-carpet-washer-with-tools/ . The direct link to the manual is http://hoover.com/file/1195/ . The directions are on page 14-15.

I hope this helps.

My hoover spin scrub has no suction wont pick up water why?


No suction means somewhere in the intake side of the system you have either a blockage or an air leak.

When hose is attached to Hoover Spin Scrub 50 sucking and solution come out fine but solution is also pouring out the bottom of Hoover


Hello! Make sure that the cleaner is in the upright position when you are using the hose. This ensures that all solution goes through the hose and not the cleaner. Be sure the black tabs on connector coupler are pushed out prior to inserting into the stair cleaning connection. If you have done this and the cleaner is still leaking, we recommend taking to an authorized repair center for service. Follow the link to locate a service center near you.

Why will my hoover spin scrub steam vac upholstery attachment not suction?


With this model, check all hose connections and recovery tank lid. if you have good suction before you put on the tool it may be the tool that needs service. inspect the tube under the recovery tank for the round gasket and the filter inside the tank.

Hoover Steam Vac Spin Scrub Carpet Cleaner won't...
Posted by hoofbeats1 on Jul 01, 2008
My machine is a little more than a year old. I have used it about 5 times. It started leaking the third time I used it. The fourth time I took it out, the brushes would not spin (I did clean them and rinse them after use each time).
Now the engine screams and won't **** anything up. Do you have any suggestions? My last Hoover Steam Vac was great and lasted for 3 years! Hi,
I have a Hoover Dual V SteamVac F7425-900 that the brushes won't spin. The lint screen is clean & the brushes switch is in the on position.
It dispenses & sucks up the cleaning solution & water; just no brush action. Help


Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. The only thing that I can recommend is that you may have a bad switch, some vacs may have a broken belt or the drive mechanism inside the Hoover Dual V SteamVac F7425-900 in or by the brush assm section and is need of repair. Please check the trouble shooting section of the owner’s manual if you’re needing help and to save money. If you don’t have one then contact the Hoover factory cust serv. So, 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 have the steam vac spinscrub upright. The brushes won't spin anymore.


Have you checked the lint screen? Your brushes are air driven if it's a Hoover Spin Scrub. There is a clear cover on the left side, when facinf from front. Remove this cover, about 3x5 inches and tapered, and clean the screen. Some units have a red or white screen that you can pull out from the bottom of the unit, left side just behind the brush block. Clean the screen then reinstall. Check that recovery tank is properly positioned- lack of seal means less suction which translates to brush block not turning.
