Carpet cleaner will not suction up solution - Hoover Vacuums


Answers :

Check for any cloggs in the hose lines. And make sure the recovery tank is not filled. Close to %95 of carpet cleaners have a shut off float of some sort which will close off the suction to the head of the machine if the water lever gets too high. Also check the shut off float to make sure it is clear of any build up. If the float is clogged, it will keep the suction closed off from the head. If this is the case, clean the float off and it should open the suction path.

I have a Hoover Deluxe Spin Scrub carpet cleaner that has lost suction. I read the solution by Chris Jones of GoVacuum.com, in which he described the design flaw whereby the tool attachment hose tears at the point of connection with the motor housing.
