I have a hoover F5915-900. Today when I got it our to use it I noticed that it was leaking. I did some troubleshooting, but not sure where to go from here. The solution tank leaks out if the recovery tank is connected also. If I remove the recovery tank and leave the solution tank on it does not leak. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

I have a Hoover SteamVac F5914-900 SpinScrub... The last time I used the hand tool attachment, it worked fine. Just tried to use it again, and now I only drips of water will come out of the hand sprayer, if that. I have tried prepping it for up to 15 seconds like the manual says... no luck with that. Also it is making a big puddle on the floor, probably because the brushes on the main unit keep spinning when I am trying to use the hand tool which I dont think they are supposed to do? Can a

Hi I have an Electrolux Envirosteamer and it has stopped steaming. I have made sure the water cap is on tight and also taken the head apart (where the hose finishes up and the attachments fit on) and the hose is intact there.

I have used my Steam Vac for carpeting, but until today, had never tried cleaning upholstery with the spin-scrub brush. I spent a miserable afternoon trying to control the spray, which seemed to go everywhere AROUND the furniture, but not ON the furniture! Additionally, I never did get the water into the recovery tank, despite many attempts to connect and re-connect the hoses and recovery tank/lid.

I can sympathize. My vac came with two handheld attachments. I have better luck with the handheld attachment that doesn't have the spin-scrub pads. To keep the water from going all over the place, you need to keep the part the you hold only about 1 ... Hoover SteamVac F5914-900 SpinScrub Upright Vacuum

Not sucking up the dirty water or it's sucking up water but it's not filling the recovery tank. I've tried reattaching the lid of the recovery tank and it doesn't look like it is sitting quite right.

This is one possibility. other things to look are the screen filter on the machine. intake hose behind the motor. ensure that accessory hose cover is closed when extracting water from the floor. ... Hoover F6212-900 / F6215-900 SteamVac Agility Upright Vacuum

Have a Centralux Aerus about 5 years old. Don't see a model number. There is suction but beater brush quit working. Was using for a few minutes, shut it off for a few minutes, turned it back on and suction only. Tried the reset button also. Tried the sidekick attachment and it works fine. There was no smell like something was hot. Belt is fine. Are there any fuses or anything else to try?

I want to brush the pile up on my carpet do I need a special attachment to do this??. I have shampood it and it still seems a bit flat. When I shampood no water/foam filled up in the front tray???I am sure I had attached everything correctly. The only thing I can think of is when I attach the brush and tray to the front of the machine, do I turn the handle back to the right way up, or do I leave it upside down, this is the one that picks up the belt.

Hmmm Hi there, I actually had tried everything you mentioned except for the vinegar idea which I'll do when I get back up to my home in Oregon. I checked for pinches, the heater, etc. Water does NOT come out of the accessory tool and only will dispense out of the main area for a second or two..any liquid actually starts filling up the area right behind the nozzles and around the pump instead of OUT of the machine. I checked gaskets, made sure there was a tight seal, and even made sure the little

Can't find info for hoover steam vac spin scrub model # F5905900 on Hoover website, doesn't show that model number at all...looking for mesh (kind of cone/cylinder shape) that goes in dirty water tank (I think) and also the tool (wand) that slides into front to clean it out. It doesn't pull all the water up very well and the filter has been missing for some time. I don't know if that has anything to do with it or not. As far as the wand tool goes, I have taken the cover off at this point and

The cleanout tool is part # 43514001. The filter is # 90001398. Be sure to leave a 1/2 inch gap between the top of the filter and the bottom of the lid. If you need a manual, try model F5914-900 0r F5912-900 on Hoover.com ... Hoover SteamVac F5914-900 SpinScrub Upright Vacuum

I also have a Hoover upright and I need to replace the electrical cord. I have dimantled the back, where the tools are stored, and the hose. I still cannot find the screws or whatever, to get to the area behind the cord, so I can replace it. I think I will have to take off the bottom too. Has anyone out there tried to do this? It seems crazy. This machine works great so I hope I can also put it back together. Thanks for the help.
