You do not say which model you have. In most cases lack of pick up is due to the lid not being firmly seated on the dirty water tank. If this is an F5800 or F5900 series steamvac, another possibility is that the front duct is missing from the tank. The duct slides into the front of the tank, and is removed to use the hose. If it is missing there will be no pick-up. A less common problem is that the large round rubber seal that the tank sits on is missing. If you look at the bottom of the dirty water tank, you will see a round tube, open at the bottom. This opening sits against the seal on the motor cover when the tank is in place. Look in the area where the tank sits, and be sure the seal has not fallen off the motor cover.

How dose it **** water up

This machine does is NOT a vacuum and does not **** up water. It's a shampooer/polisher. If used properly, with the correct solution of Turbo Shampoo to water, the carpet dries in usually no more than 2 hours. If you need a copy of the user's manual, go to the following site, "Current Models", find "Floor Pro", and download manual.

Why isnt my carpet cleaner releasing or putting any water out onto my carpet

I believe we own the same model or one that operates like it. If so, then yours has a "bladder" for the clean water, it has to be almost full sometimes before it will release any. Check the nozzle on the bottom of the tank body and on the cleaner for anything that might clog it up.
I think it will also release water only when you pull the cleaner toward you and hold the trigger down long enough as does not release when moving forward.
Also check the bottom of the cleaner and clean off anything stuck to gets pretty dirty and that is where the water comes through.

I have the Quick Steamer Plus 160 Series/2070 Powerbrush. It will not release cleaning solution and will not pick up solution that had already been dispensed. Is this something simple I can fix???

I checked the bottom of the fresh water supply container and all was well there then I used a pin in the tiny air valve on the container. Turned the machine on, pulled the lever to release water and held it for several minutes and finally the water started to release and the machine works fine now.

Hose that releases the water and cleaner on my Hoover is clogged

The unit will not release water.

The water release probably has the hose pinched shut. Storing it with the trigger depressed will eliminate this. You'll have to find the spot, where the hose gets pinched, to shut off the flow and turn it 90°.

Getting it to work.

The upper tank is the solutiontank. You mix you water and cleaned in it. The when you pull back slowly squeeze the trigger to release the solution and it will vacuum up also in the the lower recovery tank.
