Having problems with your Hoover SteamVac F5914-900 SpinScrub Upright Vacuum ?

I have used my Steam Vac for carpeting, but until today, had never tried cleaning upholstery with the spin-scrub brush. I spent a miserable afternoon trying to control the spray, which seemed to go everywhere AROUND the furniture, but not ON the furniture! Additionally, I never did get the water into the recovery tank, despite many attempts to connect and re-connect the hoses and recovery tank/lid.


Answers :

I can sympathize. My vac came with two handheld attachments. I have better luck with the handheld attachment that doesn't have the spin-scrub pads. To keep the water from going all over the place, you need to keep the part the you hold only about 1 inch from the surface of the upholstery; if you hold it higher it gets everywhere; if you hold it lower the spray doesn't spread out wide enough and it just makes big water droplets that roll down the upholstry.

If the vac isn't sucking up the water, it is likely you have it set up wrong. Take off the attachment; if you put your hand over the open end of the tube, do you feel suction? When you are using the handheld attachments there is a rectangular piece you remove (attached to the dirty water tank) and you stick the rectangular part from the hose in there. If you are getting suction but it's just not sucking up any water try these 1) maybe you aren't laying down enough water, spray it more heavily OR 2) you need to **** up the water right after you lay it down. Don't let it soak in for more than a few seconds.

good luck!

I have my Emerson FR966T wine coller set for 60 degrees, but my cooler never seems to get the high. It always hovers around 58-59. When I heat my house up (never above 68) my cooler seems to warm up to 60 (inside). Whats up? Why does the outside temp. affect the inside. The manual says it works best when the ambient temp. is 77 or lower.

I have had my Bissell 6591-X for 2 years. I hate it! No matter what I do all the fuzz, hair, whatever fills up around the upper filter before it even starts to deposit in the cup. It has done this ever since I bought it. No matter how much I take it apart, clean it, clean filters, empty the cup, nothing does any good. I spill more dirt onto the vacuum and floor than ever gets in the cup. I will never buy another Bissell.

Hi There I have got a Kirby 2 HG vaccum cleaner which is around 20 years old now. It was going really well until last week when one of the capacitors which are connected to the brushes blew up. There is two capacitors one for each brush. One of them completely blew to bits and the other one is still intact. My question is are they the same size and where do I get a new one from. I know it is an old machine, but I would like to fix it and get it going again. Any tips???

My electrolux oxygen canister cuts on and off. I have to open and close the vacuum, or take the base of the hose off and then re-insert. I have to do all these things before it will start up again. I sometimes shake the hose around, then it will come back on. If I try to dust with the dust brush (like a lamp shade or shelf) and the suction pulls against the object, the vacuum goes off for awhile. Sometimes I'll have to reset the vacuum by unplugging the electric cord. I never get to finis
