Having problems with your Hoover Steam Vac Dual V w/ SpinScrub Vacuum ?

Automatic "shut off" not turning off

\015 Hello, I have a Hoover SteamVac Spin Scurb. I have just used it for the first time and noticed that when the recovery tank was full the automatic "shut off" came on and the suction was reduced. The owners manul says that when this happens to empty the recovery tank and then put it back into the steam vac and it should resume cleaning. Well I emptied the recovery tank and once clean I put it back into the steam vac and I still have no suction. I have checked many times to see if I replaced the recovery tank correctly and it is correct. I am wondering if there is something else I need to do to get the Automatic "shut off" to turn off so that I can resume cleaning. Please help me . Thank You.\015

Answers :

Check the filter in the tank, if a dual V model you will have a screen, if not a dual V move the foam filter down about 1/4" to help.The lid on either model needs to be securely in place, as well as locking the left and right latches. On the Dual V model, check the hose door on the front.

I purchased a Eureka C4910 last year and have a question that I am hoping you can answer. There are two motor actions with this vacuum, 1) the vacuum suction, and 2) the beater bar. The action of the beater bar is that motor is supposed to automatically shut off when the handle is in the complete vertical position assuming the vacuum is stationary, but then turn on when the handle is tilted toward the floor, assuming the vacuum is moving back and forth. The beater bar motor turn-on mechan

Let's try this again. The main vacuum and hose works fine, the "foot" does not. When I turn it on, it shuts off automatically and the light comes on telling me to "check brushroll". I did this and removed all hair, strings, etc., Still won't work. Please respond. The last post took over 30 minutes with no response.


Sounds like you have hair or carpet buildup in the roller and it is not freely rotating and you are getting an error. If there is no buildup, then roller bearings may be frozen up, or the unit has a faulty capacitor and is not going to work due to el ... Vacuums

I have a Kenmore Progressive upright model 216-37100800. It is only around 1.5 years old. My wife said that one day after she plugged it and turned it on, it whirred up but then shut off. Since then it will not start. I have noticed that right after I plug it in, if I try to turn it on, the first yellow light in the series of dirt sensor lights turns on then shuts off. After that the light will not light up on pressing the power button, unless I unplug it and plug it back in again. I have seen o

My electrolux oxygen vacuum cleaner shut off and will not turn back on. It's less than a year old, but I bought it off Craig's list--they were the orginal owner and they said they bought it in May of 2008. I've only used it a few times and it worked fine except for the last time when it suddenly just shut off. I thought maybe it had come unplugged and I didn't really worry about it because I was finished vacuuming. But, I went to use it tonight and it would not turn on at all--no lights, nothing

I was using my easy flow central vacuum, and shut it off. When I went to start it up again 5 min later, it would not turn on. I emptied out the filter, and reset the switch. When the reset button was pushed, it started up the vacuum, but the vacuum was not turned on in the house. It can only be turned on from in the garage and not on the actual hose. What is going on?

I realized that their was cloggage in the vacuum part that vacuums the carpet and unclogged it. I then tried to turn on and it was dead. I have the water filled just above the stick.


The clog may have over heated the motor, usually if you unplug it then after little while, try it again. If it still won't go, does the separator turn easily or is it bound up and won't turn. Take it off and see if the motor will run(without water) ... Rainbow E series Canister Wet/Dry Vacuum

My Shop Vac (Brand) Mdl#934-16-11 keeps shutting off while I'm dry vacuuming. I can turn it back on then it will shut off again. The filter is spotless, so that's not the issue. There isn't any reset buttons. The only thing I can think of is that the float for wet vacuuming is somehow being sucked up causing the the motor to be tripped off. The vacuum is only about a year and a half old and used only sparingly. Help!
