Re: Hoover F5906-900 Steam Vac
Make sure that that the lid for the dirty water tank is locked on to the bucket, the other is make sure that the filter on the inside of the lid is not all the way up, needs to be a gap 1/4 inch or so.

Is it a carpet cleaner? If so, you should have dirty water (vacuumed from the carpet) in the recovery tank.
Most carpet cleaners have a transparent vacuum intake so you can see the dirty water going in as you pull back on the return sweep. Check for clogs or a broken belt. I advise against using you cleaner until the water pickup is repaired. Leaving water in the underlayment can cause mold,mildew and rotten floorboards.
I hope this helps. Good Luck!
1) check the tank is full of water 2)check gasket position,can be worn, or damaged fix it 3)check the belt worn for inoperable brushes. 4)check motor duct gasket, and test it. yif you notice suction in the duct, remove the tank, for assure is properly attached. 5)check the hose is attached properly at the back of the machine 6)check the lint screen in the water tank for trapped debris 7) remove any brushe from debris. 8) repair a tank debris. God bless you
Another reason for no pick up is that the duct on the front of the dirty water tank is missing. The duct may have been removed to install the hose, and was not 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 far less common reason for no pick-up is that the seal that the tank sits on has fallen off the motor cover suction tube. You will see a round tube on the bottom of the dirty water tank. This sits on top of a large rubber seal on the motor cover when the tank is in place. Be sure the seal has not fallen down into the hood.

It has only one tank that serves two purposes. It holds the clean water and collects the dirty water, so you only have to empty/fill one tank. If you check reviews of this machine you will see that they basically stop working correctly after a very short time, if I was you I would just contact their customer service at this number 1-800-237-7691
1) make sure that the lid is on properly. it should go on with the 2 tabs at the front of the machine, then click into place at the back of the machine.
2) when you emptied it, sometimes the dirt channel will fall out. This allows for the suction to go between the dirty tank and the clear channel for the water to be sucked back up.
3) when you remove the dirty water tank again, look down inside the machine for a circular hole. there should be a rubber gasket on it to seal up the tank for your suction. If it has come loose or is missing, retrace your steps between the machine where it was last used and the sink or wherever you dumped out the dirty water.
You do not have the needed vacuum on the dirty water intake. Possible causes are:
1. No adapter sleeve in the back of the dirty water tank (the one that you remove to put the fabric hose adapter in)
2. The dirty water top is not sealed (cracked, not on correctly)
3. The intake shoot at the front of the unit is clogged with dirt/hair.
REMEMBER: This is NOT a vacuum cleaner - it is not designed to remove hair and dust.... ONLY wet dirt. If you fail to vacuum floors just before steam cleaning, the unit will clog up in minutes!!
My Bissel has been having problems sucking the dirty water back into the tank. It's like it works for half a dozen uses and then just stops working. After I turn it on and off for a couple of hours trying to troubleshoot the issues it just starts working out of the blue again and sucks up the dirty water. I know there is a yellow stopper that goes up and can stop the flow but that's down and not the issue here.
It sounds to me like you have the water hose plugged in, but not the hose block. In the front of the dirty water return tank there should be a removable square plastic piece. Remove the lid and slide that piece out. Replace wth the back end of the hose receptacle. If you have already done this, then here is your problem: when you return the lid to the top of the return tank, you must roll it on from the front(there are brackets the lid hooks under) to the back and listen or feel or the "click" your tank is now ready to pick up the dirty water from your hose. let me know if this helps!
