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

Clean water coming out of sides

\015 I have an OLD Hoover SteamVac Ultra (model F5883-900). Clean water is coming out of the sides of the machine, and leaking out of the bottom. It has suction, but it's hard to dry the carpet when more water keeps coming out like that. I have checked the hose attachment for cracks, leaks, etc. the hose appears to be O.K.\015

Hoover SteamVac Ultra (model F5883-900) Threw it away, and had to buy a new machine. Sorry, but I found it more difficult to deal with the housing unit on the machine and just couldn't deal with it anymore. I hope you have better luck than I did with it. I couldn't find ANY help on ANY web sites for this model, just too old I guess.
This sounds like the same problem I'm trying to fix.

When I was trying to clean up a bathroom flood a few months ago, my aunt noticed liquid coming out of the base of our Hoover "Steam"Vac Ultra (F5883-900).  I took the tanks off and noticed that the hand tool hose was broken near where it enters the guts (it appears that flopping the upright part to the floor stretches the hose; repeated stresses when sucking up the rain from our basement a few years ago probably broke the hose).

So I ordered a new hose from Sears Parts Direct (part 2, no. 38671035, from the Cleaning Tool Hose Assembly; US$8.99 (and I had a coupon)) and sat down today to replace it.

This unit was not made to be repaired.  When I tried to prise the clips open to get the old hose out, they broke.  The hose is attached to the hand tool with one-way clips; I reckon I could drill the old ones out and attach the new hose, but the other end is more difficult.  It appears to be hard-wired to the part that plugs in to the base (see part 45 on the Base diagram); the version of the hose I need (part no. 40309032) costs US$80.99 from Sears.  Not gonna happen.

I think I'll stop up the inlet and just keep this thing for a wet vac.  (There should've been a class action lawsuit over the name, IMHO.  How could they call it "Steam"Vac when it uses warm water that's cold by the time it's dispensed?  When my mum bought it, she thought it was a steam cleaner.)  Oxi-Clean and really hot water cleans stuff better, anyway.

That's probably not what anyone reading this wanted to hear, but there you go.

Anyway, I won't buy a Hoover next time.

Peace and love, everyone.

Poor suction...continued Wow, thanks for answering so quickly! To answer your question, yes, there is suction at the screen, but it is very weak. I keep that screen clean. As a side note, I noticed that when I remove the top clear plastic cover (that would be part # 37 on the diagram, as far as I can tell) there is decent suction coming from the intake there--part 36? 30? it's hard to tell. But with the cover on, I feel no suction (from where it sucks up the water directly from the carpet),

Wish I had it in my shop, it is hard to figure your problem. I do know that you must have something out of place and you may have to take it apart to find it. You may feel some suction there at the top of the clear nozzle, but maybe it isn't strong ... Hoover F6212-900 / F6215-900 SteamVac Agility Upright Vacuum

No Water My Bissell rug shampooer does not eject water or saop whan I pull the saop trigger on the handle. I checked both filters and they are clean. Then, I removed the container that sucks up the water and pulled the saop trigger, water barely came out of the tubes. I tried to clean the rug in our family room and the rug was not wet when I finished, no water coming out to clean the rug. HELP HELP HELP!!!

My Bissell Quicksteamer Model 1960-R won't spray cleaning solution. I have cleaned it and taken apart the whole thing. I can't find any problems. The holes are not cloged where the water comes out as I disconnected it and blew through it to be sure. The lines show water trying to go through. It is as if it doesn't have enough power to pump the water out when I squeeze the trigger. I am thinking it is the pump thing but can't find a replacement part for it.

I got my bissell for $7.50 from a thrift store, if you can believe THAT. Used it for the first time today after reading the manual online first. After filling the clean water bladder full of hot water and setting everything up the way I wanted, proceeded to turn things on and go for it. Well, the water/solution just kept coming and coming, without my finger on the trigger. Obviously something is jammed in the open position but where? The trigger moves freely.

This is the answer I got from Bissell:Please\015\012check the gasket at the bottom of the tank to ensure it is attached and\015\012not lodged in the reservoir of the machine. If this is not the problem,\015\012take the machine for i ... Bissell 8910 ProHeat Clear View Upright Vacuum
