Having problems with your Hoover SteamVac F5914-900 SpinScrub Upright Vacuum ?
Blowing air out
\015 Our vacum is blowing warm air out and not sucking up any of the water. What should we check?\015
Blowing warm air is normal for these machines. The suction problem is probably a result of the lid on the recovery tank not being installed correctly. Take the lid off the tank. If you look at the top/front of the tank, you will notice that there are two "tabs" at the corners. These tabs insert into the lid and hold the front of the lid in place. You then fold the lid down towards the back where there is a latch on the lid that locks the lid in place. It is a very common problem that people don't get the front engaged properly and the suction leaks out there and never gets to the floor. The motor will produce heat as a natural byproduct and is not unusual.
This was, by far, the best written, directional solution! Thank you som much...my sanity has been restored!

I have a WRPL 25P Dehumidifier, Serial # NQ336USA2733, that I purchased at Canadian Tire, Corner Brook, NL, Canada on July 25, 2009. I recently noticed that the dehumidifier wasn't working. When I turn it on, it just blows cold air and does not absorb the moisture in the air. I am wondering if it is still under warranty. Please advise if the product is still under warranty and what steps I need to take to have it repaired or replaced. Thank you.
My 4 yr old Nilfisk vacuum cleaner has been working fine up until now. But suddenly, it has hardly any suction power and also, hot air seems to be coming out thru the vents on top and also thru the space that's normally used for blowing air OUT....the outlet with the retractable cover located close to the part where the power cable comes out of and retracts into. I've checked the filter and the hose and they are not clogged...I have also put in a new bag. Not keen to buy another vacuum cleaner u

It isn't sucking up things like it use to. Where the Hepa filter is it is blowing out to much air. I need it to blow less and **** more.
