What model is your steamvac ?

Hoover Vacuums | Answered on Oct 30, 2018

Check if the machine is on drip dry cycle. Make sure it is pumping out. It wont spin until the water is out. There may be a blockage in the hose or pump. Check the belt may have broken. Worst case is the transmission has failed. If there is a tide mark of orange rust / grease around the inside of the cabinet, its a sign the drive has failed.

Are you sure about the model number? I don't see any Hoover FH20240 models. The Hoover Max Extract 77, FH50240, manual is available from Hoover. See https://www.hoover.com/max-extract-77-multi-surface-pro-carpet-and-hard-floor-cleaner/FH50240.html . The direct link to the manual is http://tti.a.bigcontent.io/v1/static/FH50240_Hoover_User_Manual .

Most Hoover manuals are available here: https://www.hoover.com/manual-video-search/ or https://www.hoover.com/user-manuals/ .

I hope this helps.

Temp sensor not detected or thermistor problem. This is probably not something that you are able to repair yourself.

If you have a wax finish you can buff out scuffs with just a cloth. for polyurethane, do not use water. use the cleaner with a soft terry cloth. to much presure can make it worse.you can also use a small amount of paint thinner on polyurethane. make sure you remove excess with floor cleaner.
