Having problems with your Hoover SteamVac F5914-900 SpinScrub Upright Vacuum ?
Hoover Steam Vac leaks like a sieve
\015 When i try to use my hand tool on my steam vac there is a huge puddle\015\012of water under the vac where it has leaked how do i fix that??Others on this forum have indicated the same problem - but no solutions - can anyone help??\015
I have the same problem with my hoover steam vac, different model but same problem. So I have had it for 2 years and never used the attachments because the thing leaked out the bottom when i tried. So today I tried to find a solution online and found nothing. So I started toying with the thing and found a solution for my model and I hope it will work for everyone else. I don't have a stair attachment so this goes for the upholstery cleaning attachment. I noticed right where my upholstery attachment connects to get soap, there is a second hole that is covered by a white rubber seal when the cover for the connection area is closed. I put a plastic bag, or anything to seal it, into this hole to make a tight seal. Tried the machine and worked like a champ. So Would be nice if hoover supplied a plug for that, but oh well worked for me hope it works for others with a hoover steam vac.
I just had this same problem (with my girlfriends fathers hoover, no less!) I had the cleaner on a tile floor trying to use the hand attachment on the sofa, and I noticed the puddle. When I put the cleaner on a carpet, it seemed to work fine. Not sure if it wasn't creating a "vaccuum" on the tile or what, but it seemed to remedy it. Also, make sure the hose it attached securely at the base.

Beater brushes not turning on the wife's Hoover Steam Vac model F5905-900. Found one prior ''solution'' stating that it sounded like the belt was bad. That was my original thought, but on checking schematics and trying to find part numbers at Sears Parts Direct and at Hoover, it does not appear the F5905-900 steam vac HAS any belts to begin with. What's next??

Hoover F6025900 Steam Vac Widepath LS, I own this steam vac and I found bits of rubber under the machine when I turned it on, smelled like burned rubber from a belt? Can you please tell me if there is a belt on this carpet cleaner and if so, how to access the belt? I have taken out some screws and still cant get to the belt? Thanks
Well there is no belt, and not sure what the rubber would be from, everything is plastic or metal. Unless it is really an electrical smell, which means the motor is going bad.\015\012\015\012 ... Hoover Vacuums

Hoover F5809 Hello, I seen a few of your post and was hoping you could help me. I just became a member today. My sister gave me her old Hoover Steam Vac-Model F5809.
