I think it is the gasket on top and bottom of the plastic chanel that takes the water up to the dirty water holding tank , Part of the rubber gasket is missing on both the top and bottom. This will alow
air to come in and thus you loose the suction to empty the water into the dirty water bin. My unit is hoover steam vac model F60220-900. I need to know where to get the gaskets.

  • There a twist lever on the side to change from floor to tools. If "everything else works" then you have it on tools. Twist it back to floor and it will work.

I have the hoover steam vac f5906900 and im just trying to use the detachment. I plugged in the water part but i cant get any suction. the water is spraying out that is all....help my dog **** on my bed...


Hi, The attachment hose also has to be plugged into the dirty water recovery tank. The other end of the hose which has the square plug, must go in the spot on the recovery tank where the water comes up from the floor. To do this, Remove the lid of the recovery tank, slide out the little rectangle (usually same color as the recovery tank) which is located just above the clear water channel from the floor there, and insert the square piece for the attachment hose. It should only fit in one way. Replace the lid to the tank and you should be ready to attack the ****. Good luck. Mark

The carpet is not intended to get soaked, like what you see with a spray application. If you are seeing a stream of water in the nozzle/tank during the recovery stroke, this is working properly.

Steam vac won't **** water


check to see if the recovery tank lid is on correctly. if this is not on, the machine will not **** up the dirty water from the carpet. all you will get is suction that is chopy when it comes up instead of more like a flow.

Solution tank does not dispense--recovery tank still sucks up dirty water from tile floor on screen porch. I applied cleaner manually with a scrub brush and sucked it up with the hoover steam vac deluxe.


Check to see if the when you squeeze the trigger, the rod is hitting the reservior asm(tank sits on). If not then there is a problem inside the handle and the rod. If it is hitting, then the reservior asm. is bad. Also make sure fluid is coming out of the tank when you push the vavle in at the bottom of the tank.

NoSuckage !!!


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.

The recovery tank also has a clear plastic piece in the front that is suppose to be snapped into place to make sure its in place pull on it in the direction of the handle of the steam cleaner if it snaps then that was the problem it got out of place
