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!

    THANK YOU!! I cleaned the impeller with CLR and when it still did not spin right, I gave it a couple of whacks with the handle of screwdriver - that reseated it and machine works perfectly now!!!!!!!

Sounds like the pump or turbine (part #43582004) isn't working. Could also have a problem with the trigger asembly.

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.

I have a hoover steam vac carpet cleaner, it won't extract solution once it's sprayed out? it hasn't beeen used in about 4 months ?


You probably have no suction and that is because the aluminum flywheel has broken apart under neath the blower motor. (cheap construction) I know I just figured it out on my unit.

Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. I have a similar Hoover “SteamVac” and the vacuum does not create steam as you stated, but you do have to use the hottest water with cleaning solution and the Hoover will clean your carpet by spraying down the solution, the scrubbing brushes will loosen the dirt and the vacuum will pickup the excess water until the holding tank is full and then you have to empty it, and then start again. The word “Steam Vac” is something that the Hoover factory labeled but so far I have not seen anything that actual produces “Steam” while cleaning. Feel free to contact the Hoover factory with your complaint @ the information listed below. So if you need further assistance, please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or in the yellow pages, or contact the factory phone number or website to further assist you with your questions.

I can not seem to get the attachment for the upholstery cleaner to operate what am i doing wrong????

Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure.
The attachment works on the suction from the Hoover Steam Vac and it’s either a straight suction tool or a revolving brush, check the front of the machine to see if the is a switch to turn on and odd, also before you attach the upholstery tool check the end of the hose for suction, it may be that your upholstery tool may be clogged or the brushes are not spinning and a part may be broken. Feel free to check with you local vac dealer or a new or a good used part if you find out what is wrong. So if you need further assistance, please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or in the yellow pages, or contact the factory phone number or website to further assist you with your questions.

F5411 steam vac jr. spot cleaner


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!
