My Hoover SteamVac Will Not Pick Up Water


The Hoover SteamVac is a carpet cleaner with the ability to heat water as it treats your flooring. The machine comes in a wide selection of variations, such as a wide-path model, dual-floor model or turbo-power model. Regardless of the specific attributes of your Hoover SteamVac, the process for troubleshooting a machine that fails to pick up water is similar and could keep you from the hassle of filing a warranty claim or coordinating professional repair.

Things You'll Need

  • Hoover detergent, if necessary
  • Turn off the SteamVac. Unplug it from the power supply.

  • Remove the carpet cleaner's clean solution tank. Check the water and detergent levels, and refill if necessary. Set the tank aside.

  • Remove the unit's recovery tank -- this is the dirty-water tank. It is held in place by latches on its right and left sides.

  • Unlatch and remove the tank's lid. Empty its contents into a sink.

  • Replace the lid on the recovery tank. Confirm that the lid has a tight seal all the way around the top of the tank -- an improper seal can result in a loss of suction.

  • Seat the recovery tank back in its compartment, and relatch it on both sides. Replace the clean solution tank.

  • Plug the SteamVac back in, and turn it on to test.
