Having problems with your Hoover F5858-910 SteamVac Vacuum ?

Hoover z400 clogged

\015 I have a Hoover z400 and the suction hose seems to be clogged at the base where the vacuum head pivots. There is no suction when I run the unit on the floor, but if I detach the hose and use the hose with attachments there is perfect suction. I have tried to remove debris with a coat hanger (carefully) and have had little luck due to how the plastic is molded where the debris travels. I hope this is descriptive enough. Please help!\015

So, we removed the plastic flap which appeared to be stuck in the upright position allowing the hose and attachments to work, but not the base. Now it is working, but we will have to put the flap back to get the rest of it to work if we can't figure out how to fix the problem. Not a total solution, but now at least I can vacuum the carpet without using the little attachment!
There should be a bottom plate covering the brush roll that you can remove, if you can't dig out the what is in there, try using your hose and suck it out from the bottom, maybe you will be able to get it out.

Hoover tempo upright is clogged. I can only vac for a few minutes, then I have to unplug it and turn it over and clean out the under part under the roller.

It is maybe a year old. How can I take it apart and unclog it?

Hoover Windtunnel T-Series UH20700 9 mos old. Keeps clogging in hose just above the beater brush assembly. I think it clogs because the suction is too weak to pull much through.

My Hoover SteamVac has been doing a wonderful job but in two instances, after emptying the dirty water and reattaching the reservoir, the machine has lost suction. The first time I was able to make it work again after taking it apart and putting it back together about 10 times. I don't know what I did that fixed it but as long as it worked again, I was happy. But it's happened again and I can't get it to vacuum. I can see that it isn't clogged. Can you please help me????
