Check to make sure that the recovery tank lid is fastened down all of the way around. Also if the foam filter on the bottom of the tank lid, make sure there is at least a 1/4 inch gap from the top of the lid. The wire screen filter is plugged, from the bottom, it has a red frame, pull it out far enough to clean it. These are the causes for non-suction.

Changed hose on carpet cleaner and it wont pick up the water


If you are unable to pick up water from the carpet after using the hose attachment, is is usually due to one of two reasons.
1 - The duct on the front of the dirty water tank has not been put back in place after using the hose. It is a square plastic piece about the size of a slice of sandwich bread.
2 - The lid is not properly seated on the tank. Be sure to hook the two tabs on the front edge in place before hooking the latch at the rear. This also applies when using the hose.

Too much solution being dispensed--carpets very wet--running out of solution before even 1/3 of room cleaned


The cleaning solution tank is only sufficient for part of a room, unless the room is very small.

Are you following the instructions for using the cleaner carefully? The machine has to be pulled backwards (towards you) at a steady pace in order for the vacuum to pick up the water that is dispensed. Do not use it like a normal vacuum cleaner - that will not work.

You need to start facing a wall, and pull the cleaner towards you, moving at about one foot every two or three seconds. The vacuum will then pick up the water that has been dispensed and the carpet will be damp but not sodden.

My hoover steam cleaner will not pick up the water the machine pu


Two checks:
(1) Is the lid aligned and sealed to the recovery tank
(2) Is the round rubber gasket installed on the tubular post under the hood, where the tank seals to the base? The tube extending down from the tank must sit on the rubber seal to get vacuum from the motor.
