Having problems with your Hoover SteamVac Carpet/Upholstery Deep Cleaner Vacuum ?
The automatic shut off
Check the filter on the inside of the lid for the dirty water tank. It needs to have a 1/4 in. gap from the top of the lid to the top of the filter.
I've only used my Hoover steam vac twice and now it will not turn on. Any idea what the problem may be?

I just got a dirt devil cyclone quick lite for xmas and its wonderful, but in the last three weeks it shuts off by itself after just 10 minutes of vacuuming.

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

ShopVac pump The waterhose connection is up high. The only way to get the water up to the level of the hose is to continually hold down the on button due to the automatic shut off after it fills to a certain level. On the bottom of the filter there is a hole. I am thinking there should be a small hose of some sort to put into that hole that would then lead up to the level of the water hose. Concept makes sense to me. But in the meantime, good old duct tape seems to have done the trick. Not exact

The automatic drain hose is hooked up to the back of the unit, but when the bucket is full, the automatic pump does not work. The automatic pump should come on and empty the bucket, but it does not come on unless the water is siphoned manually through the tube. Then the pump come on and empties the bucket. I have reattached the tube and still had to manually siphon the water through the tube. Any suggestions?
