My machine is only a few months old and has worked perfectly until now. I cannot get the machine to pull the solution back into dirty tank. I have tried the suggestion with the lid and that did not help. My carpet is wet and I need help. Please!

If you are sure the lid is in place, another reason for lack of suction is that the duct on the front of the dirty water tank is missing. The duct may have been removed to install the hose, and was not put back in place. It is a square plastic piece, about the size of a slice of sandwich bread, which slides into the front of the tank. A far less common reason for no pick-up is that the seal that the tank sits on has fallen off the motor cover suction tube. You will see a round tube on the bottom of the dirty water tank. This sits on top of a large rubber seal on the motor cover when the tank is in place. Be sure the seal has not fallen down into the hood.

How do i disassemble my hoover f7220


Hi there! The tanks, brushes, nozzle and handle can be removed from the cleaner by following these quick steps below.

1. To remove the clean water tank simply grasp the handle and push down on handle to unlock it, then pull the tank out by the handle.
2. To remove the dirty water tank, slide the latches open located on the sides of the cleaner that hold the tank to the base of the cleaner. Grasp the handle and pull up and off.
3. For brush removal, with the handle in the upright position, tilt cleaner back until handle rests on floor. Grab brush assembly and pull firmly.
4. To remove the nozzle, with handle in upright position, tilt cleaner back until handle rests on floor. Pull tab at rear edge of nozzle and pull forward to remove nozzle.
5. For handle removal simply remove the handle screw and lift up on handle.

Disassembly beyond this point is not recommended. Hope this helps!

Ensure the Dirt Devil is connected to a working power supply if it does not turn on or operate. Check the fuse or breaker and replace or reset as necessary.

  • 2 Empty the dirty water tank if there is little or no suction. Turn off the Dirt Devil and grab the top of the dirty water tank. Push on the latch to release the tank and pull the tank off the base. Remove the lid and empty the dirty water into a sink. Replace the cap and hook the front of the tank onto the machine base. Hook the nozzle on the base so that the nozzle is level with the cleaner base. Push the back of the dirty water tank down and into position.


  • 3 Check the dirty water tank and empty as necessary if there is water leaking from the cleaner. Open the latch on the top of the solution reservoir and pull the reservoir forward. Fill with Dirt Devil brand cleaner to the fill mark. Fill the rest of the reservoir with hot water and close the cap. Replace on the base unit.
  • 4 Make sure the solution reservoir is seated firmly in the base unit if there is no cleaning solution dispensing from the unit. Fill the solution tank with cleaner and water if the level is low.
  • 5 Examine the hose and nozzles for possible obstructions if the carpet cleaner does not seem to be operating correctly. Remove any blockages.

    What setting do I need to have the machine on to **** up the excess water? I want to download the manual but can't seem to find a link to do so, how would I do that?


    You should have the vacuum set to Wash/Rinse for all steps in cleaning. Press the trigger to release the cleaning solution and push the vacuum forward. With the trigger still pressed, bring the vacuum back towards you). Then release the trigger and again move the vacuum forward and then back. Repeat the "dry" strokes until the dirty water enters the dirty water tank. Watch the water going through the dirty water tank lid. Empty the dirty water tank if the suction fails or the tone changes. Do more dry strokes after cleaning the entire surface until you do not see more water entering the dirty water tank.

    The manual is available from Hoover at the product site: http://hoover.com/products/details/f7411900/max-extract-dual-v-widepath-carpet-cleaner/ . The direct link is here: http://hoover.com/file/592/ .

    I hope this helps.

    I have checked everything and my machine will not **** up the water, everything is hooked up right, my machine is only about 5 months old and have used it 2 time, and on the third time right now and I have...


    The most common reason for lack of pick up is that the lid is not fully seated on the dirty water tank. Be sure to hook the two tabs on the front of the lid, and then snap the rear latch into place. Another reason is that the duct on the front of the dirty water tank is missing. The duct may have been removed to install the hose, and was not put back in place. It is a square plastic piece, about the size of a slice of sandwich bread, which slides into the front of the tank. A far less common reason for no pick-up is that the seal that the tank sits on has fallen off the motor cover suction tube. You will see a round tube on the bottom of the dirty water tank.

    Just got spinscrub this afternoon and worked great until had to empty dirty water. Now there is no suction at all. Have tried to find clogs and nothing to be found. Am about to return the damn thing!!!


    ok 3 things to check before re-boxing it up.

    1) make sure that the lid is on properly. it should go on with the 2 tabs at the front of the machine, then click into place at the back of the machine.

    2) when you emptied it, sometimes the dirt channel will fall out. This allows for the suction to go between the dirty tank and the clear channel for the water to be sucked back up.

    3) when you remove the dirty water tank again, look down inside the machine for a circular hole. there should be a rubber gasket on it to seal up the tank for your suction. If it has come loose or is missing, retrace your steps between the machine where it was last used and the sink or wherever you dumped out the dirty water.

    Good luck,

    I have never used a shampooer before when I use it it says to empty out dirty water. I don't have any left. My tank is empty. Am I doing something wrong.


    Suggest that you do the following.
    Remove the TOP ("Clean water") tank. Fill it 1/2 full of water. Put the top on the clean water tank and place it back on the machine.

    Release the machine handle and remove the cover of the "dirty" water tank. Inspect the back of the tank to be sure that the vacuum adapter in located in the rear of the dirty water tank. If not-that is your problem. If yes, restore the top to the dirty water tank.

    Power the machine on.
    On a kitchen floor, power the machine on. Pull the trigger and hold it for about 30 seconds. You should see water gathering around the brushes. If not, that is a problem.

    With water around the brushes, release and lower the handle and and move the machine over the water. It should vacuum the water into the dirty water tank.
    Is all of that happening?

    How do i disengage the dirty water tank from the machine to empty dirty water.


    There are two colored levers on the left and right side of the tank, simply pull them outward and then lift the tank off of the machine.

    -OR-

    There is a handle on the top of the tank, lift that handle straight up unlocking the tank.

    Best of Luck

    Emptying the powerbrush


    Gently
    press the Quick Release tabs on the Clean/Solution Tank
    and slide the tank off of the unit.
    Grab the Dirty/Collection Tank and pull to remove.
    While at the sink, remove the Tank Cap by turning
    approximately 1/4 turn counterclockwise and lift
    out the cap.
    Empty the tank. Rinse the Dirty/Collection tank with
    warm water.
    Replace cap and turn approximately 1/4 turn clockwise,
    until snug.
    Slide the Dirty/Collection Tank into the unit. Replace the
    Clean/Solution Tank.

    The tabs on the side is what locks the tank on, if they won't release the tank, then you may have to take apart to get it off and replace the tank.

    Spotbot is leaking...


    Mine constantly leaked as well but I found that if I remove the container will the solution in it after every use it doesn't leak anymore. I store my container (upright - nozzle face up) under the sink with my other cleaning products and when I need to use the machine I pull it back out, pop it in and clean.

    Either the lid for the dirty water tank is not completely on or the filter inside has been pushed up all of the way to the top. You need to have a 1/4 in. gap from the top to the top of the filter.
