How Do I Attach the Upholstery Attachment to My Hoover Steamvac?

The Hoover SteamVac is an alternative to renting a professional carpet cleaning machine from a retail store, and acts in much the same way, using warm water and cleaning solution to clean carpets and other surfaces. The SteamVac comes equipped with a set of tools for accessing hard-to-reach places and cleaning cars and upholstery. Attaching the upholstery tool to the SteamVac is fairly simple, and should only take a few minutes to complete.

Step 1

Turn off and unplug the Hoover SteamVac from the power source.

Step 2

Push down on the solution tank handle and pull it out. Set it aside.

Step 3

Take the hose out from the storage rack and step on the foot release pedal to lower down the SteamVac handle.

Step 4

Unlatch the back of the recovery tank lid and remove the lid. Slide the recovery tank front panel up and out.

Step 5

Slide the included converter panel down in place of the recovery tank front panel. It will slide down halfway before stopping.

Step 6

Pull the tan collar on the cleaner towards the tube so that the black tabs extend.

Step 7

Lift open the "Stair/Upholstery Cleaning Connection" port and connect the suction tube connector on to the nozzle inside the port. Push down firmly to ensure that the hose is completely connected.

Step 8

Hinge the back of the tank lid on the back of the tank and rotate it down until it's fully closed on all sides.

Step 9

Raise the SteamVac handle. Fill the water and solution tanks and restore power to the unit before using.
