My steamvac wont pick up the water. it is spinning and blowing out the water, but it wont **** it back in
The most common reason for lack of pick-up is that the lid is not seated firmly on the recovery tank. Lack of pick up is always caused by an air leak. A less common possibility is that the large round rubber seal that the recovery tank sits on has fa ... Hoover Steam Vac Dual V w/ SpinScrub Vacuum
It has no suction. It was fine yesterday. I washed the dirt container and the filter, let it dry and put it back in the vacuum. Today my vacuum isnt picking up any dirt and has no suction. When I took the hose out of the back, it started blowing dust and dirt out but still no suction.

** suction The best way to describe it is that when I was vacuuming I could see dust clouds at the front of the vacuum where the light is swirling around in the air. It was like it was blowing dust around instead of picking it up. I checked the tubing and found that it was clogged with some paper and hair ***** etc.... So I cleaned it out and tried it again and it still was not picking up properly. I had my husband take all the tubing apart to check for other clogging and there was none. When I

I just bought a foldaway hoover with wide path. I plugged it in and started to vacuum and dust flew everywhere. Walmart would not give me my money back so they gave me another hoover foldaway with the wide path. I thought this one might work. This one does the same thing. It blows dust out the sides and you can't vacuum with it. Any help would be great.

I have a Simplicity model 6970 upright vacuum. It picks up great and there is no smell but it will over heat in about ten minutes and shut down. There are no clogs. Once cool, I hit the thermal reset on the back at it works great again until it overheats again.
It could be electrical on the inside of the vaccum or your belt is the wrong size therefore making it over heat. Hope this helps?!Please rate and comment - Thank You ... Vacuums
