Be sure to leave a gap of about 3/4 of an inch between the top of the filter, and the lid of the tank. Without this gap, the ball will shut off the suction prematurely.

My SteamVac SpinScrub works fine then all of a sudden, the noise level of the vac seems higher and does not **** up water. I turn off vac then turn it back on, works good for awhile, then noisy, higher...


It sounds as if the ball in the tank in shutting down the suction prematurely. Be sure there is a gap of about 3/4 inch between the top of the filter inside the tank, and the lid of the dirty water tank. Without this gap, suction will pull the ball up too soon.

The hoover has just had cylinder emptied, but now wont turn on unless the pedal has been pressed. there does not seem to be much suction aswell


Try taking the cylender back out and put it back in again carefully to be sure it goes in correctly as they need to sit perfect if they don't they will have next to no suction because it is not sealed properly.

My DC25 Animal is making a howling, whistling noise. Primarily when turning off (winding down to shut off)


if it started after you cleaned the filters, it is because when you smack the filter that is in the ball like they tell you to, it pushes the gasket in so air can sneak past it. take it back out and pull the rubber gasket away from the filter so there is about 1/16-1/8" away all the way around, then put it back in. it will seal it and stop.

Check your filter screen insde the upper tank. if your model has a wrap around filter try to pull it down about 1/2" to maximize air flow.

Dirt Devil Extreme Quick Vac - Won't turn on


Check that the filters are completely clear and not blocked - especially the top filter on top of the bin assembly. If its clogged completely brush it free of dirt and then reassemble. Make sure the inner cone filter and mesh filter is also completely clean. Then check the hose and main dust channel - something is clogged that makes this machine overheat and stop working - and often with this model (Hoover also make it in the UK under the Alyx name) its down to clogged filters or small clogs of dust in the dust channels. 
Don't forget to rate, thanks.

Have an old Hoover steam Vac and it will spray the cleaner down but will not **** up the cleaner. The red ball keeps coming up right away. What is the problem?


Check the filters, make sure they aren't clogged. Also if this has the foam filter on the inside of the tank lid, make sure it has at least a 1/4 is gap from the top.

Red float keeps popping up


You need to clean the debris channel. Put the machine on a waist high flat surface open it and remove the dirty water container. You will see three vertical screws which lock the scroll above the motor to the clear plastic panel at the front of the machine. Open these screws and remember which one belongs where. To the left of the scroll, there is a black horizontal screw which should also be removed. If you look closely, you will see the right hand of the first three screws (brushes face to your right hand) has also released the plexiglass (clear plastic screen where you see the dirt and soap flowing at the left side. Now put the machine on its side and look at the front edge of the plexiglass just ahead of the brushes. There are two screws which have to be removed - one on each side and bingo the plexiglass shape lifts clear. Clean out the muck, check the scroll channel for similar muck and reassemble.

The muck is plugging the dirt path and fooling the red float that the tank is full.

Re assemble the reverse of the disassembly procedure. Do not use a power screwdriver as you will likely shear the screw heads.

Good luck,

AMSW
