There are three screws that hold the clear plastic cover in place. Turn the machine over and remove the two silver colored screws at the outer edges of the cover. To remove the third screw, remove the dirty water tank, and you will see a screw at the top center. After the screws are out it should be easy to pull the cover off for cleaning.

Why does my hoover steam vac only blow out


Hey there! The cleaner blowing out air instead of sucking is an indication that the unit is not sealed off properly. Follow these brief steps to restore suction to your cleaner.

1. Remove the clean water tank.

2. Recline the handle and let the cleaner lay flat.

3. Remove the dirty water tank lid.

4. Reposition the front panel located on the outside of the tank in the center. It should be flush to the tank, even straight across and pushed down as far as it will go.

5. Assemble the dirty water tank lid back on from the front to the back. The lid should not lift up from the front.

Give it a try! The cleaner should now have suction. Hope this helps!

My Hoover steam vac spin scrub will not suction up the cleaning solution . Why is there no suction?


p{margin-top:0px; margin-bottom:0px;} Hello,

Thank you for your recent e-mail. I am sorry to read about the problem that you are having with your cleaner.

Please make sure your recovery tank and lid are installed correctly and forming proper seals. Make sure that your filter is clean of any debris. Clean the screen in the tank lid. Make sure your nozzle and squeegee (if on your model) are free of dirt/lint/hair and attached in their holsters correctly. Make sure you do not have any clogs in the hose.

To restore suction, please try the following:

*Remove dirty water tank and clean filters- main reason for low suction is dirty filter

*Verify the dirty water tank cap is not missing.

*Verify dirty water tank lid is inserted completely into unit.

*When cleaning, the yellow float inside of dirty water tank should be free moving.


• First remove your clean water tank and unplug the machine
• Remove the dirty water tank lid and push the front panel piece (square plastic sliding piece in the front of tank) down to make sure it is inserted all the way.
• When reattaching the lid, hook the tabs on the front of the lid to the tank first, then click shut in the back. Pull up on the lid firmly, it should not lift at all. If it does, try reattaching as a seal needs to be formed for suction.
• Test to see if suction has been regained.

If these suggestions do not solve your issue please call a service center.

Your cleaner has at least a 6 month warranty for manufacturing defects. This warranty begins from the date of purchase, with the original sales receipt. If you do not have the original sales receipt, the warranty may be verified at the warranty repair center by MFG or serial number.

Please visit www.Hoover.com and click on service center locator for a list of authorized dealers in your area for service and warranty assistance.

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.

    My steam-vac carpet cleaner doesnt seem to be pulling the dirty water back out of the carpet.


    The most common reason for this is that the lid is not fully seated on the dirty water tank. Be sure to hook the lid in front, and then snap it in place at the rear. Another problem could be that the duct is missing from the front of the tank. The duct is removed to install the hose assembly, and may not have been 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 less common problem is that the round rubber seal that the tank sits on has fallen of the motor cover suction tube. Look beneath the tank for the missing seal.

    I have a Hoover SpinVac SpinScrub machine and have used it seven times. The last time I used the machine to clean my carpets, it would not **** up the dirty water. I clean it out each time I use it, but...


    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 it in front before latching it in the rear. Another common issue is that the duct is missing from the front of the lower tank. The duct is removed to install the attachment hose, and must be put back in place before trying to clean carpeting. It is a square plastic piece - about the size of a slice of bread - which slides in and out of the dirty water tank.

    I have a billell Pro Heat 2X without a manual. How do I fill it and what ratio water to cleaner?


    The cleaner goes into the small bottom at the very rear of the machine. It is uses full strenght (don't add any water to it). You add clean water into the bottom clear plastic section on the front of the machine. The clean water bladder is soft plastic and it is filled from the top. When you start using the machine, the dirty water will get suctioned into the section surrounding this bladder. The machine will stop working when either the bladder is empty or the dirty water section is full. Remove the entire plastic section to dump out the dirty water.

    My Bissell Dirtlifter Powerbrush carpet cleaner will not roll. The back wheels roll fine, but when you put the machine down flat, the front part (where the roller is) sticks and will not roll.


    I had the same problem. It would pull backwards but not go forward. A closer examination revealed the clear plastic part on the bottom in the very front of the machine had popped loose on one side.
    If you look at the front of the machine, there is the clear plastic part on top where you see the dirty water being sucked up. The bottom half that creates the channel for the vacuum is where it came loose. It wouldn't create enough suction to draw the water up either. By taking out the two screws that hold the top part in place and removing it, I was able to snap the bottom back in. Works fine now. Hope this helps.

    My bissell powerbrush won't **** up the water


    had same problem - carpet soaked with dirty water and very little, if any, cleaning fluid used. Easily remedied. Removed water resevoir and found that the rectangular shaped washer at the top of the front cover (the bit you had unscrewed to give a good clean) had become dislodged. It has small lugs on either size which lock on to the plastic opening when pushed down firmly. Resevoir then sits on top and makes full connection, also ensure that grey locking handle is fully pushed down.

    Seemed to me that the water wasn't being sucked up as there was air getting in and this has down the trick. Sorry if this is difficult to follow but all will become clear when you look for the black washer! Good luck
