Having problems with your Vacuums ?

Just bought a Hoover steam vac. Did the dining room. everything okay.. emptied recovery tank and replaced. started on living room. dirty water not going into recovery tank. carpets very wet. What did I do wrong and how do I correct it


Answers :

You may have put the lid on your recovery tank on wrong. on some models you have to lock the front in first then snap it down in the back. if you can pull the lid away from the tank then its on wrong and isnt making a seal.

I have a Bissel Pro Heat Plus and I used it once, one year ago. I may be using it wrong, as my carpets were wet and there was no return (dirty water).

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

The water tank on my bissell proheat 2x is not keeping the clean and dirty water separate. I;ve checked the container and there doesn't seem to have anything wrong with it.

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?

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
