How do you get to the belt on a Hoover steam vac?

I hate to tell you, but there is no belt at all on the steam vac line. they have a suction driven turbine to turn the brushes, and a suction driven pump for the water flow. But definately no belts.

If something is not working on it, describe more in detail what is not working and we can narrow it down better for a proper solution.

The hoover steam vac 5 brush agitator dispenses water and soap but does not show any return water to dirty water reservoir. The carpet seems damp but not soaked, still a bit troubling no waste water...what...

You do not have the needed vacuum on the dirty water intake. Possible causes are:
1. No adapter sleeve in the back of the dirty water tank (the one that you remove to put the fabric hose adapter in)
2. The dirty water top is not sealed (cracked, not on correctly)
3. The intake shoot at the front of the unit is clogged with dirt/hair.

REMEMBER: This is NOT a vacuum cleaner - it is not designed to remove hair and dust.... ONLY wet dirt. If you fail to vacuum floors just before steam cleaning, the unit will clog up in minutes!!

Problems with the Hoover Steam vac Heated carpet cleaner

This happens when the filter on the inside of the lid for the dirty water tank is pushed all of the way up. You need to leave a 1/4 in. gap from the top to the top of the filter.
