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

Tank Cap is stuck

\015 Hi, After steam cleaning my living room rug, I tried to remove the tank cap which is now stuck. Clockwise or counter-clockwise, it rotates with difficulty (as it alwasy has), but it will NOT COME OFF! I've had this unit close to ten years and this has NEVER happened before. How can I remove the tank cap, please? Thank you for any solution you may provide.\015\012\015\012Joe\015

Answers :

I had the same problem. I was able to use two butter knifes (using dull edges) to 1. pry up cap slightly and 2. pull gasket over lip of cap

I then worked the gasket off by lifting the cap right behind where I was removing the gasket.

Once the gasket was off, I was able to remove the cap easily.

I then put the gasket back on, undamaged, and could use like normal.

The difference between the lock and unlock position is only around 20-30 degrees.

Stuck Roller Same problem here. I think in our case, the accumulation of hair and the increasing resistance the hair created over time caused the hair to start melting, and eventually the end cap was stuck to the roller, which prevented the roller from turning. I cleaned out the melted hair(?) as best I could, but I think I need to order a new roller and end caps.

My Kirby shampooer - G4 - hardly used any water from the tank and no suds at all. Pet hair did blow out of the small slotted holes in the tray as I moved the shampooer back and forth, but the carpet was basically dry. I did vacuum before shampooing, so the brush part seemed to work great during shampooing, but no water! The small screen was stuck in the crook of the hose that attached to the tank so I did get that out and put it on the small hole on the tank, but it didn't make any difference. I

Hi I own a Bissell Proheat Powersteamer pro-tech with a turbobrush. I have been using "bissell multi-allergen removal formula for carpets and upholstery." I ran out of that last night.

I have a Bissell Proheat 2x Model 9200. The solution goes directly through to the carpet. The tank empties extremely fast even when I am not pushing the button. I have also noticed that I have soap spots on the carpet when pushing the cleaner forward. These spots are not even associated with the cleaning mechanism. I have inspected the cap on the tank, but it seems to be OK. Any suggestions?
