Having problems with your Hoover F6020-900 SteamVac Upright Vacuum ?

Pickup water wont pickup the water after putting it down very little comes up into the tank .it worked fine when we baught it but after not useing it for some time it worked now it wont **** water up at all can anybody help.


Answers :

The clear shroud covering the front of "hood" has two sheet metal type screws at the bottom in front of the brushes, these two screws also hold the little straight brushes ( one on each side) in place. I found one of these screws had broken it's plastic "socket" and was no longer applying any pressure to the hood, this caused loss of suction and would not pick up any water...You can test this by applying a little pressure to the "clear hood" after you have applied water and shampoo. You should immediately see water entering the pickup reservoir container. I removed the broken plastic "socket" and replaced original screw with a longer wood/sheet metal screw. I think this is a weak point on the cleaner and is easily broken by catching the front lip on any hard object. Hope this helps

My Bissell Pro Heat Select 2X does not pull up the dirt from the carpet into the water. The water just slowly disappears. The first time I used it the water got really dirty. The very next time I used it it worked differently and the water just disappeared until it was all gone. I've only used it a couple times and I don't see where it is working. Has anyone else had this problem?

I have Bex Bissell Proheat. It is one problem requiring fixing each time I use it. Just had a new pump fitted as water not spraying out. Now the water is not being sucked up. For the money this has not been a good product. When it works it is good. But the constant issues each time it is used is frustrating.

I have a bissell pro heat model 7901-B that has power but no water circulation. I was told that the previous owner used it without water and that she couldn't get it the power on. I bought it off of her and cleaned it out and now the power works, but there is no water circulation. The brushes run and heater works, just can't seem to get it to circulate water.

I have a hoover 3000 i have not used in awhile, and since I removed a large rug, I would like to use it again on my slate floor. HOWEVER, I cannot get it to pick up ANY water in the water recovery unit......it is dry, dry, dry. I have put in a new filter, cleaned the nozzle unit, the scrubber , and reconnected both the recovery unit and the water unit several times, but to no avail. I would like to get a graut attachment a well as replacement part, but since I can't get the basic unit to work, I

We have a series 90S, 2.5 gallon Shop Vac. We used it for the first time to try and **** up water in the basement. Each time we turned it on, it would shut down after collecting less than 1" of water. We had to remove and squeeze out the foam sleeve each time, before it would work again (nowhere near 2.5 gallons!). Any ideas? Is the plastic sleeve that can move up and down inside, the float (poorest manual I've ever seen!)? Should there be a ball float that we're missing? Thanks for any s

I just bought a shop vac to **** up the winter slop in the garage. the first time I used it, it worked perfectly but the 2nd and 3rd times I used it, it spits water from the exhaust. Why?

I have an euro-pro steam cleaner model # sc505 that is about 2 years old. It has only been used a limited number of times, about 3 or 4 times. It now has a tightly sealed safety cap on it and it will not release allowing me to add water to the steamer to use it now. Any tips on fixing it? I'd love to have a products guide to items that are available for compatiability with our sharkie. We constantly see new items available and wonder will that product work with ours?? Thanks!

I have a new Hoover Dual V steam vac that I bought from a neighbor who only used it once. I have only used it once since then and it worked great. This time, because I am pregnant, I bought some non-toxic cleaner that was much thicker than the very watery Hoover soap. This vac has a wash option and a rinse option. The rinse option works (sprays and sucks properly), but the wash cycle doesn't at all-neither soap nor water comes out. Nothing comes out, but it still sucks. I took everything o

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

I have a Hoover SteamVac F5914-900 SpinScrub... The last time I used the hand tool attachment, it worked fine. Just tried to use it again, and now I only drips of water will come out of the hand sprayer, if that. I have tried prepping it for up to 15 seconds like the manual says... no luck with that.

Recently our Vitapur water cooler has not been dispensing water. The problem is the water is freezing in the upper reservoir. We have tried unplugging the unit overnight & turning it back on at the minimum cold setting several times which has not worked. We have also used the Vitapur cleaning kit to clean the unit, which also did not help.
