Question about Hoover F5881-900 Vacuum
Everything seems to be "right", but, no spray out of the upholstery cleaner... I have the machine upright, the "tools" indicator is in the window, the upholstery cleaner brushes rotate - press trigger, no solution comes out. Floor part works fine... I have taken the easy parts apart and cleaned them best I could. Thanks for the manual posting! No help here, though... Teddy G. www.teddygvo.com
After tearing things down and inspecting the handle switch, etc., I found that my problem was detergent. It sets idle for a while or doesn't get used very much and the detergent dries and actually clogs the inside of the hose. I cleared it by fully extending the hose, pressing the button and allowing the clog to clear itself. The built in heater helped out a lot once the flow started again. I used a can of compressed air to provide a little blow back to get things moving but not too much or the pump would be damaged. Remove the tool and hold the nozzle into an empty cup while depressing the trigger. A warm vinegar solution clear things out nicely.

Your handle cover is broken inside not allowing plunger to go down. Take screw out, and you'll probably see the piece that holds plunger is broke.
