Having problems with your Hoover F7431-900 SteamVac Vacuum ?

Can't figure out how to get my hoover runabout steam vac to pick up


Answers :

Assure the ring gasket is in place under the hood. A round rubber gasket must be in place on the round tube under the hood where the recovery tank sits to connect the vacuum from the motor to the round tube on the bottom of the tank.

Hoover F6025900 Steam Vac Widepath LS, I own this steam vac and I found bits of rubber under the machine when I turned it on, smelled like burned rubber from a belt? Can you please tell me if there is a belt on this carpet cleaner and if so, how to access the belt? I have taken out some screws and still cant get to the belt? Thanks


Well there is no belt, and not sure what the rubber would be from, everything is plastic or metal. Unless it is really an electrical smell, which means the motor is going bad.\015\012\015\012 ... Hoover Vacuums

Need instructions how to use Hoover Steam Vac Spin Scrub. I borrowed it from my Sister and she left it with no instruction book or letting me know how to operate it.
