Having problems with your Hoover SteamVac Carpet/Upholstery Deep Cleaner Vacuum ?

Float problem with Hoover Steam Vac Deluxe

\015 I can hardly go 2 or 3 feet before the float pops up and I have to turn the unit off to reset the float. I have had problems with this from day one but I used to be able to go further. The float pops up all the time. I thought it was from bumping the wall or furniture but now no matter how slow I go it happens all the time. Do you have a solution?\015

Answers :

This happens when the filter on the inside of the lid for the dirty water tank is pushed all of the way up. You need to leave a 1/4 in. gap from the top to the top of the filter.
