Having problems with your Hoover F5881-900 Vacuum ?

Stair and upholstery attachment

\015 I went to clean the car upholstery on the weekend and when I took the upholstery tool/hose to start, I turned on the machine and the cleaning solution started spraying out the nozzle all by itself. When I pushed down on the release button, the solution came out stronger. I turned off the machine, took apart the nozzle and rinsed everything in warm water in case there was a blockage, put the unit back together again and it still kept on spraying. I disengaged the solution tank, turned the machine on and sprayed all the solution that was in the lines and then just used the sucking action after hand spraying the upholstery. Can you tell me why the solution would come out freely prior to using the spray button? Is it a part defect?\015

Answers :

After tearing things down and inspecting the handle switch, etc., I \012found that my problem was detergent. It sets idle for a while or \012doesn't get used very much and the detergent dries and actually clogs \012the inside of the hose. I cleared it by fully extending the hose, \012pressing the button and allowing the clog to clear itself. The built in\012 heater helped out a lot once the flow started again. I used a can of \012compressed air to provide a little blow back to get things moving but \012not too much or the pump would be damaged. Remove the tool and hold the\012 nozzle into an empty cup while depressing the trigger. A warm vinegar \012solution clears things out nicely. It's kinda hard for this piece go defective but easy to overlook when wrapping up and storing the unit. Remember, clean water rinse with 1/4 cup white vinegar. There, I fixed it and wasn't even broke!

\015\012Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. Hoover F5881-900 Vacuum. It sound to me that you may have a defective pump or switch, the sprayer or solution should not spray out unless you use the trigger. Question? How old is the machine – if it is less than one year this would be covered under the Hoover factory warranty and if it is more than one year than you may want to check the trouble shooting part of the owner’s manual or to call the Hoover tech support line @ the factory. So if you need further assistance, please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or in the yellow pages, or contact the factory phone number or website to further assist you with your questions.
