Question about Hoover F5411 SteamVac Jr. Canister Vacuum

I have had the Hoover F5411 Steamvac portable for years and absolutely have loved this little machine. Now when I pull the trigger for my spray to come out it just trickles out. I have taken it apart and tried to clean but still does not spray. Any suggestions. Thanks LeAnn

You will probably need a new pump assembly if this unit is old, ( part # 43582004 ). This part may no longer be in production, but try ebay.

Will not spray water anymore


chances are your unit is clogged with lime. Go to the hardware store and get a jug of a product called CLR which will dissolve calcium, lime and rust. Follow the directions and you will be back up and running.

Hoover Alyx 2000w, no power. Help!??


Its a possibility then that if the fuse has been replaced that the cable inside has either come apart or you have a broken switch. If its only a year then you should be covered automatically with Hoover's guarantee.

Hoover Steamvac Upholstery Cleaner will not spray water.


In my case when I pulled the trigger on the upholstery hose I barely got a drizzle of water. After looking at the parts online I realized the valve assembly on the spray end of the hose consisted of a black valve housing, with an inner spring and a white plunger part that sprays the water. The white plunger should move noticeably when the trigger is pulled. Since all 3 part of that valve assembly were replaceable I decided to try and take it apart. First I removed the 2 silver screws on the cover of trigger end of the hose and lifted out the valve assemble. The white plunger part was basically frozen in the black valve assembly. Tried pulling the white plunger out by hand wouldn't budge. So I use a pair of plier and pulled the white part out. Sure enough the whole inside was caked with what appeared to be old dried cleaner. I rinsed the spring and the white plunger. There were o-rings on the white plunger, I did not remove them but used an old tooth brush to clean out around them then reassembled. The white plunger now freeing slides a noticeable distance when the trigger is depressed and getting a large V shaped spray pattern. Lesson learned, I will now make sure I run plenty of plain water through the hose to rinse all the cleaner out after using it .

I'm not sure what your referring too, but Here is how it works. The trigger is snapped into two "rocker retainers" in the handle. when you pull on the trigger, it rocks and pushes on a rod that goes down to another shorter rod and that one pushes on the valve that releases the solution. A common problem was that the "rocker retainers" would break off and the trigger would not push on the first rod so the machine would not release solution. You will have to replace the handle half (called a trigger guard). The trigger itself has two plastic "springs" molded into it. This is all one piece with the trigger and they don't usually break. Also, when you remove and replace the handle, you have to pull the trigger to re-engage the two rods togeather or the machine will constantly spray solution. I hope this helps.

First take the guard off the nozzle and remove the nozzle being careful to not let the spring fly. Now pull off the little white tip of the nozzle which less than 1 inch long. Run a needle or fine wire through the main hole running parallel to the hose and make sure you can see it at the head of the nozzel end. It is best to also blow on it to make sure any dirt particles are gone. Even a speck of dust in your solution part of the tank can easily clog it. In 90% of these vacs, that solves the problem and I have repaired at least 50 of them in the past 4 years.

If that doesn't solve it then try this:
Take the impeller on the bottom out by flipping the tank part over, and clean it. Make sure it spins well.

These Hovver Jr Steam Vacs are long lasting and very effective in cleaning spills and stains. Our janitorial company has many of them and in 5 years only one of about 60 has finally been shelved for parts only. I have replaced a few nozzles and several tank latches plus filters, hoses, and the brush and capp on the end of the hose. An additional chore that is made easy with this is defrosting a freezer!

There is one manual for the Hoover F5411 SteamVac Jr. available on FixYa.com but, when I opened it, I was not able to actually download a "copy" of the manual.
Instead, it looked like I would have to download / save all the pages of the manual as individual web pages (and then, if I wanted, convert them).

I went to http://safemanuals.com/ (also a very good site) and, although they didn't have the manual there, I was directed to the main www.Hoover.com website.
There, under "manuals," I found the manual, available for download as a pdf file.

Happy steamcleaning!
