Question about Hoover SteamVac Carpet/Upholstery Deep Cleaner Vacuum

1 Answer

Restrictive valve moments after starting the vac the red ball rises to the top and the machine quits sucking. I turn the machine off, the ball drops, I turn the machine on, the ball rises the machine quits sucking, I turn the machine off the ball falls, I turn the machine on........etc. What am I doing wrong? It works fine and then all of the sudden it starts the same stuff again. I thought it was because the retrieving container was getting too full or the cleaning soln container was not full enough, but it doesn't seem to matter. Please help

The foam filter on the bottom of the tank lid is too far up. Pull it down so you have at least a 1/4 inch gap from the top.

Honeywell central vac H703a overheats and cuts out after 5 minutes, motor is only a few months old. Plug at insert end is warm, as is the electrical input assembly


It's possible there is a restriction somewhere reducing the airflow. If your model has filters or a filter bag they may need replaced. There could be a restriction in the tubing somewhere which is usually within the walls of your home. Start by checking the amount of suction at the central vacuum unit and at each valve. Don't forget to check the hose, wands and power nozzle too. A restriction is not the same as a clog but a restriction will usually turn into a clog. A restriction can start with something as small as a pin, needle, toothpick,bread clip, etc that gets sucked up but gets stuck somewhere between where it got sucked up and the central vacuum unit. Hair, dirt and debris can start to build up like a log jam and can turn into a clog completely choking off the airflow.

Starts but turns off immediately. red symbol lights up


check your bag for fullness, if full, change it.
if not, try adjusting your grit control on the top of the canister to the largest setting.
if your vac still shuts off, you need to replace the control valve assembly.

My shop vac jsut hums


If the check ball is stuck closing airway, the strike the unit on top when its off, you may hear the ball drop and there try again. Otherwise, if that's not it, most like the fan portion inside to create air movement has separated from shaft of motor assembly. You may try top open top and reconnect, but if you not sure don't try this. Take a look at product info for possible replacement or back to store for advice.

What would cause my shop vac series90pn to quit working while picking up water


The best thing for a basement that is vulnerable to flooding is a small sump with a permanently wired automatic submersible pump in it. Such pumps are relatively cheap and available in many qualities.
While such an installation will not keep a basement dry it will ensure the water level rises only enough for the majority to flow into the sump and be pumped away without you needing to do anything.

Wet vacs of my experience either have a float valve to prevent water ingress into the motor or a switch to cut off the power if the level rises too high.
Many such vacs have a powerful motor generating much heat and are only suitable for fairly short duty cycles. When used continuously the internal heat build up can distort plastic and melt thermal safety fuses.

It is impossible to guess what the trouble might be and that will only be revealed by checking. With vacs the first suspect is the power cord and the second is the switch...

Vacuum motor noise and smell


If the ball was stuck and you sucked water into the motor it could cause it to smell like it's burning if it ruined the motor

How do i prime steam vac so it will start sucking up water again


Inside the collection bucket is a round white ball that needs cleaned off and insured that it is free to move. Also check the ribbed suction hose for breakage after you lay the machine open as wide as you can. You will see that flex hose stretch as you open the unit wide. (they rip apart there)

I have the dyson dc 27. On the bottom left back side of mine there is a circle, and ball inside of it. I turned it on and pushed the ball and it started working again. Sometimes it doesn't cover the whole and stops sucking air through it.
