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.

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.

Dc 24 roller brush quit working....belt is okay & there are no obstructions on roller or in head compartment & suction at head is strong


Hi there, sometimes a stretched belt will hamper the vac. from picking up. he best way to test this is to turn the machine on, then carefully put you hand on the roller. If the belt is stretched the roller will stop turning when you apply pressure. Hope this helps, Chris

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.

Red plastic cylinder on the lid of the recovery tank


The problem is sporatic so I've just resigned myself to the fact that I will have to put up with it since I'm not willing to pay for a solution. The machine is older so I will probably replace it soon, however, this problem began after only several uses. It was a poor investment from the start as there have been several other problems that I've had to have repaired and even now am working with one of the hoses duct taped together. I won't buy another of this brand!
