Recovery tank not filling

\015 Hoover working, dispenses from upper tank into carpet but water doesn't enter recovery tank. Is there a jam in the automatic shut off so that water cannot be recovered?\015

Answers :

The tank has an automatic shutoff float (red) that will stop the suction if the water level gets too high. this can also happen if the tank is not level or clean as the float can bounce around and jam at the top. I've actually had this one happen). I would make sure the float is down during the cleaning and see if the suction comes back. if not, please provide more details and we'll get 'er fixed!
