SOURCE: my hoover steamvac wont **** up dirty water float

Check your filter screen insde the upper tank. if your model has a wrap around filter try to pull it down about 1/2" to maximize air flow.

sounds like you need to attach the air hose

with reservoir in place you clip on the lid with tubes attached, one of them goes down to the floor cleaning nozzle, the other tube should be about 20cm long with an end piece,

this is the air hose and it fits into a small hole under the reservoir on the motor housing (the heavy mains powered part that clips onto the big recovery drum that sits on floor)

it's mentioned briefly in the manual, here it is in pdf form http://www.box.net/shared/rnh39ffjcq

Why does my hoover steam vac only blow out


Hey there! The cleaner blowing out air instead of sucking is an indication that the unit is not sealed off properly. Follow these brief steps to restore suction to your cleaner.

1. Remove the clean water tank.

2. Recline the handle and let the cleaner lay flat.

3. Remove the dirty water tank lid.

4. Reposition the front panel located on the outside of the tank in the center. It should be flush to the tank, even straight across and pushed down as far as it will go.

5. Assemble the dirty water tank lid back on from the front to the back. The lid should not lift up from the front.

Give it a try! The cleaner should now have suction. Hope this helps!

When I use the hoover steam vac the bottom tank does not have any dirty water or anything in it, I bought it from a neighbor I wonder if I have it hooked up right.


If the motor runs and the water is not sucked up it is due to an air leak. This is most often caused by the lid not being properly seated on the dirty water tank. Be sure the lid is on squarely all around. Another common problem is that the duct is missing from the dirty water tank. This occurs on the models which have the more "square" shaped tank, with a foot operated on/off switch. The duct slides into the front of the lower tank, and is removed to attach the hose. It may have not been put back in place by the last user. A less common problem is that the large round rubber gasket that the tank sits on has fallen off the tube that comes up from the motor cover. Look for the gasket by removing the tank and checking underneath it.

The red ball pops up periodically; why is that?


The red ball is the float/shutoff for full tank. That prevents water from overflowing and being sucked in to the vacuum motor. When the float shuts off the vacuum to the tank, the tank needs removed and emptied of dirty water. The float may get activated prematurely if the foam sock around it is dirty. It may be removed and rinsed.

HOW DO i GET THE WATER OUT OF THE CARPET ONCE IT'S CLEANED?


Do you have a shop vac . Take the bag out of the shop vac ,and **** up the water . When you are done open your windows and do not walk on the carpet for at least one hour . You want your carpets to dry with the pile standing up. Carpet rake is the best thing to use . Best of luck Ed.

Dirty water is leaking back out


After shut off all steamvacs will leak dirty water that was sucked up back out. There is always some left in the nozzle. If it is a large amount there is clogged filter that isnt allowing the proper suction. Refer to your manual or go to hoover.com to download one for cleaning directions.

Hoover turbine replacement


first you must remove the dirty water tank then the nozzle window on top of the machine. (this is the clear piece that the dirty water is sucked through.) then remove all 8 screws from the bottom along with the 1 screw on the main housing. after all this the top housing will be snapped into the base at two spots in the rear of the upper housing. when these are loose the housing should be out. you will find the turbine in the front along with 2 more screws and 2 hoses that also must come off. attach new part and reassemble.
good luck!!!

Hoover steam cleaner


Is it spraying and sucking up ok? Check the filter inside the dirty water tank, it needs a 1/4 in. gap from the top to the top of the filter. If it isn't spraying out a good stream along the bottom, maybe running a mix of vinegar and water may clean out the lines to help it spray better.
