Having problems with your Vacuums ?
No suction to retrieve water from carpet
\015 Watre/cleaner disperses on carpet but doeds not retrieve back into waste reservoir. Previous post by someone else was of no help. I have no knob at the top of the clear plastic retrieve flange on front of unit. That clear plastic retrieve flange i clean. I'm aware it gets clogged easily and when so, inhibits water return. If I run with lid off waste "bucket" I feel great suction over the intake hole. Help!!! My carpet is soaked! Hoover SteamVac model 5809\015
The tank lid of your recovery tank is designed to engage two tabs to lock the front of the lid down on the seals. Look at the front corners of your recovery tank. You will see a tab extending out on each corner. These two tabs insert into the corresponding grooves in the lid. Once engaged, the lid folds down and the clip on the lid snaps into the back of the tank. When installed correctly, if you pull up on the front of the lid, it should NOT lift away from the tank. The front of the tank has a square "duct" that is removable for when the hose is inserted for furniture, etc. Make sure that this duct is replaced back into the tank when using on the carpet.

I have a Bissell Pro 2x carpet cleaner. The water heats properly as well as spraying the cleaning product. However, when I go to suction the water from the carpets, the 2 in 1 water tank bladder works properly but there is no dirty water outside the bladder. I have only used this carpet cleaner ~ 5 times and in the beginning I had to empty the suctioned water quite frequently as it was dirty and it could not not hold any more water. So I have done 1 room and all the dirt remains in the carpet
Check that the suction cone is not blocked. Check that the filter or hose to the bladder isn't blocked as well. ... Vacuums
Water is not being discharged. I have filled the reservoir that holds the carpet cleaner fluid And I have filled the water container. I know how to use the cleaner, it has always worked, But now, no water is being discharged to the carpet. I turn it on, squeeze the trigger, but nothing comes out. The wheel that is suppose to spin (to indicate that water is being discharged) is not spinning. Everything else works. I.e. the suction works, and the hand held accessories work.

Suction Problem I just borrowed the Hoover Steam Vac Deluxe w/ 5 brush agitator from my neighbor and it worked ok for the first few minutes, although the suction would stop and go. When I had enough water to dump I did it and when I put it back on it no longer sucked the water up from the carpet. She admits to having it for 15 years, but why did it have to break on me. Makes me look as though I did it!

Poor suction...continued Wow, thanks for answering so quickly! To answer your question, yes, there is suction at the screen, but it is very weak. I keep that screen clean. As a side note, I noticed that when I remove the top clear plastic cover (that would be part # 37 on the diagram, as far as I can tell) there is decent suction coming from the intake there--part 36? 30? it's hard to tell. But with the cover on, I feel no suction (from where it sucks up the water directly from the carpet),

I have the Hoover max Extract 77 and when I'm cleaning the carpet, the clean water tank leaks on the floor, even if I'm not squeezing the trigger. The clean tank doesn't leak when I fill it, but once I place it where it fits and start using the vacuum, the clean water drains out on the floor. The dirty tank fills up, so the suction works, but, I don't know what is going on?
