It would be nice to see a photo of where the ball is and how to get to the hoses to check them.

I did check the intake chute and it was 90 percent clean. Checked the gasket. It looked fine.

Don't want to go any further here in my bathroom. Will take it in for service.

It is about 10 years old, but not used a lot till recently. Works good when it did work.

It worked correctly first time I used it but this time no water at all in dirty water bin....so that mean it is in my carpet?? What the heck! I tried the fix utube but still nothing. I may need to return this as it is not working!

I would check for a break in the vacuum lines, hoses and clamps.

I have a blue hoover spinscrub 50 three years old or so and mine does that unless I remove the in-tank filter.yes,it's clean.

There is a valve that the filter goes on that's supposed to close when it gets full..it closes way to early with the filter in place with barely any water in the bottom of the tank.

Works fine without it,I just have to be careful to clean the valve of debris and keep an eye on the water level.

Try cleaning the return canister float ball. If it is stuck in the up position the machine will not make vacuum.

I liked both of those answers, thank you!

In my case, the float is not a blue ball. It’s a yellow flat sided cylinder. Looks kind of like a biscuit. It was easy to fix once I finally figured out the problem with the help of this site. I would like to see a video about this problem and solution. It would help a lot of people, apparently. The trouble shooting “tips” in the factory instructions — like other videos I’ve seen — belabor the obvious and offer “duh” “solutions” to non-problems. (My machine won’t run. Solution: Make sure it’s plugged in. Duh!) my machine, btw, is a SteamVac carpet cleaner.

I have the same kind the flat biscuit looking yellow so what was your problem and how did you fix it you don't say this

Check the gasket under the dirty water tank. If there's not a good seal/broken gasket, it won't have good suction.

Check the dirty tank, the back flap that you attach the hose too. Mine flipped out when I dumped the dirty water tank, pull it up , then back down, make sure you can't pull it forward, that should do the trick.
