Hoover Steam Vac Dual V w/ SpinScrub Vacuum\015 Hello, I have a Hoover SteamVac Spin Scurb. I have just used it for the first time and noticed that when the recovery tank was full the automatic “shut off” came on and the suction was reduced. The owners manul says that when this happens to empty the recovery tank and then put it back into the steam vac and it should resume cleaning. Well I emptied the recovery tank and once clean I put it back into the steam vac and I still have no suction. I have checked many times to see if I replaced the recovery tank correctly and it is correct. I am wondering if there is something else I need to do to get the Automatic “shut off” to turn off so that I can resume cleaning. Please help me . Thank You.\015

VAC bans are permanent, non-negotiable, and cannot be removed by Steam Support. If a VAC ban is determined to have been issued incorrectly it will automatically be removed. If you wish to discuss Valve Anti-Cheat with the community, you may do so here.
A steam cleaner uses hot water and detergent to clean carpets. The water is then vacuumed up, leaving the carpets wet. After a steam cleaning, you can expect it to take at least 8 hours for carpets to dry completely. However, the time it takes will depend on whether or not you use a detergent-based cleaner.
If you notice that your Hoover shampooer or carpet cleaner doesn`t spray water or the brush roll doesn`t spin, then typically you need to replace your turbine assembly. This is another very common repair need for these shampooers because the turbine is air-driven.
Spray issues

Check the machine is set to carpet cleaning mode. Make sure you are holding down the red spray button on top of the handle. Check the red base tank has enough water, and refill if necessary. Check the braided hose on the rear of the machine is securely fastened.

`Tripped` reset systems are the most common reasons for a brushbar not turning, but there are some other less common reasons too. These include: If the bearings on the end of the brushbar have seized, you won`t be able to turn it at all. This will often result in a broken belt as well, so be aware of this.
Your Vax carpet cleaner may not be picking up water because the machine has picked up too much grime, and has become blocked up. Check around the head of the carpet cleaner for anything obvious that might make the suction on the Vax weaker, or look for clumps of hair that could be caught in the bristles.
A: No, the machine does not have a heating element.
Although some carpet steamers and cleaners have a suction mechanism to remove the cleaning fluid and water from your carpet after cleaning the area, you should only use them for steaming or cleaning a carpet and never use them like a vacuum cleaner.
Some VAC protected games allow servers that are not protected by VAC. Users that are VAC banned are still able to play on insecure servers for the game they are VAC banned in. Please note that not all games have insecure servers.

ANSWER : Check the filter in the tank, if a dual V model you will have a screen, if not a dual V move the foam filter down about 1/4″ to help.The lid on either model needs to be securely in place, as well as locking the left and right latches. On the Dual V model, check the hose door on the front.

The Vaccum is not turning on when i plug the hose into the wall. The hoover system will turn on when i turn the switch on at the base and wont go off till i turn the switch off. But it will not come on automatically when i put the hose in to the wall connections.
Many Thanks
Linda
ANSWER : You can test this out by taking a small metal spoon and with the bottom side of the spoon insert it into the vac outlet on the wall. you want to touch the two metal pins inside the vac outlet to test if the unit is the problem or the hose is the problem.
.
.If the unit starts, the hose should have a 3 year warranty on it. I recommend you have your nearest beam dealer check it out.
.
.If the unit does not start, it has a 7 or 10 year warranty, the circuitry should be replaced. Again have your nearest beam dealer check it out.

.good luck

I have a roomba 530 pet series. It appears that the brushes aren’t turning. They are free of dirt and debris and move easily when manually turned. But, You can tell there may not be a motor turning, because the roomba is more quiet than normal when you turn it on. Also, the hair just collects along the bottom of the brush and doesn’t get pushed into the bin.
ANSWER : The belt either broke or has come off the track…. this should be easily accessable from the underside of vaccuum

My Dyson DC07 will not turn on. I was just using it and moved to a new area and plugged it in and it turned on for a split second and then it turned off and now it won’t turn on at all. Any suggestions?
ANSWER : Loose wire, bad switch, or thermal cut-out. In any event, you will have to use a voltmeter to troubleshoot the problem, there is no way of knowing the problem otherwise

Filters have been clogged with wet cat litter and now the vac will turn on but shuts off and wont cont to vaccume. can we clean/rinse the filter out. filter light has come on and then turns off once the vac shuts down.. thanks
ANSWER : Using a vacuum cleaner for wet cat litter??? Not a good idea at the best of times! The machine’s cutting out because it’s overheating. You don’t tell us the make or model of your machine – some filters are washable, many are not. Your user manual should tell you. As a general rule, cloth- or sponge-type filters are probably washable, paper ones are not. If you do wash the filter, give it at least 24 hours in a warm place to dry thoroughly before re-using.
