Having problems with your Hoover Vacuums ?

I have a steamvac v i was wondering if i fill the container of water to the top and does the water need to be cold or hot? I heard I could use tide liquid if so how much do i put in the detergent holder

Hi there SmartAlec from NelsonVacuums.com.au here. I have looked at literally hundreds of steamvacs over the years and you can use warm but not hot water in the tank. You cant use hot as it tends to slowly warp the plastic container and it stops sealing well. Also as far as i am aware you can NOT use any kind of detergent in a steam product. It will clog the steam jets very quickly and hey presto a broken steamer. Hope this helps.
Happy Vacuuming! :)

While using my mop yesterday, it stopped letting steam come out. Tonight I plugged it up again and you could hear it trying to steam. I push the button in to release the square frame and it pushed out a burst of steam and pushed the head off. Put it back together and it still will not let steam out. No matter how much water is in it.

I just got this euro pro shark steam mop. I dont have a manual for it so i dont know much about it. I put water in it and it heats up but when you start to use it. It makes a gurgling kind of sound and steam comes out, but not very much i dont think and on the floor you can't hardly tell where you went over the floor at cuz it's not very wet at all. So is it suppose to make a gurgling sound and should'nt the floor be alittle wetter?

For the first time, I tried using my Kirby Sentria shampoo attachment. I've lost the manual but found instructions online for making the swap from regular vac to shampoo-er and got it all assembled. The foam laid down just fine, however, when I run the vac back over the foam to pick it up, there is not a stitch of water showing up in the tray. First I thought maybe it was bc I hadn't put that much of the foam/water onto the carpet, but 12 hours later, the carpet is still wet in spots. Clearly

I don't understand the confusing marks on the detergent holder on the Spotbot. I understand to fill it to the "water" mark, and I understand to then fill it to the "Oxy Gen" mark. But, what is the "Formula" mark? Do they mean other regular carpet cleaning formula is used with the Oxy Gen? BJR

I just used my Bissell Proheat, when I heard the vacuum sound get lower and lower then suddenly something "gave" and it got very loud and started emitting a burnt rubber smell. It still worked to put liquid into the carpet; seemed to have trouble getting it out. I checked the tank, filters, belt, and roller and all seemed OK - but when I started up again and looked down I saw sparks in the motor/belt area and shut it down immediately. Any thoughts?

The bearing that is located at the top of the vacuum motor has failed . Because of that the shaft of the motor's rotor is out of position and the pulley attached to it has started rubbing on the other pulleys, giving you that smell. the spark appear ...

Need instructions how to use Hoover Steam Vac Spin Scrub. I borrowed it from my Sister and she left it with no instruction book or letting me know how to operate it. I put water & cleaner in top tank. That's all I know to do. Do I put any water in bottom tank? I figured not, since that is probably where the water goes when sucked up by vac. Do I leave lid on bottom tank? I usually use a commercial cleaner, and this is very different. I need to know NOW, as I must return it to her today, and I'm
