I have the Hoover SteamVac V2 with Auto Rinse feature which I just
purchased. Cleaned all the rooms in the house with no problems until
I got to the very end. Now when I put the detergent into the
detergent canister and go to work, the detergent is used up within
five minutes of use (~ six 5-foot passes). It was using the detergent
much more frugally at first. I could do a whole room just about
without having to refill the detergent.
Has anyone else ever suffered this problem with a steamvac sucking up
the detergent too quickly???
I'd appreciate any thoughts.

Is it also using up the water at the same rate? Mine got a clog somewhere
in the water system and started only using detergent after about the same
amount of use. I still haven't gotten a chance to look at it to figure out
Well, I noticed that it didn't seem to be using very much water, so I
tried a little later this afternoon with NO detergent in the canister
and now it's not even putting out any water either! So I guess it was
just gradually and gradually using more and more detergent and less
and less water until now---nothing. <sigh> $300 for nothing more
than a big heavy vacuum cleaner! Geez, where to I start looking for a
clog in the water system? Or should I just bring the sucker back to
Sears? Bummer...I really love this thing.
Without having seen this whole feed, let me suggest checking all rubber
o-rings and/or seats. Our Eureka was not pumping water at one point, and it
turned out to be a missing ring around a spot where the water bucket
attached to hte main unit. I called support, then walked me thru it and sent
me the new ring. If Hoover has a decent support line, you may be able to
call and get some guidance. Unless of course you have done that already and
I just missed it..
