FAQs & troubleshooting of Hoover FH11300PC Spotless

It says vacuum only, what does this mean? Is it the whole hand held carpet cleaner?
Answer: It is a hand held carpet shampoo (steam cleaner) system. Great for spot cleaning and upholstery. It would not be good solely as a vacuum cleaner.

Question: Is it okay to use on high pile carpets?
Answer: Yes, it has strong suction. Just make the passes with parts from sides then on top if the carpet is thick and high. You’ll love this cleaner !

Answer: I’m sure if you googled the exact model and he year and company name of it you could find it right on google or YouTube for sure

Question: Does it get rid of pet odor ?
Answer: Did for us. Of course it would depend on what you are using for cleaning. We used Nature’s Miricle odor and stain remover, for retreating the area first. And the hoover pet carpet cleaner after that . Worked great!

Question: how does this machine compare to the “little green ” ???
Answer: I have never used another spot cleaner. I can state I was pleased with the results from my Hoover cleaner. One does not set this cleaner down and walk away. It does require you to spray the cleaner, and remove the excess water. The process goes quickly and I didn’t find it much of a chore.

Question: which brush attachment work with this?
Answer: It doesnt have a brush. I dont know if you can get one. It works great on our rugs for picking up dog accidents – Rug comes as clean as a large rug washer.

Question: does this work on urine stains
Answer: Yes.

Question: How do you clean the hose? Does it detach?
Answer: It is designed to clean itself. Once you are done using it, you out one end of the hose in a section on the back and the water goes through it and cleans it.

Question: Why does it say vacuum only? Is it spot cleaner or not?
Answer: It is a spot cleaner, but the suction (at least on mine) is not good and it may take several hitches to get the spot out. It does have the nice feature of running water through the machine to keep it clean and smelling good.

Why does it say vacuum only am i getting a vacuum or the carpet cleansr
Answer: It’s a spot cleaner

Question: This says vacuum only. Is it a carpet cleaner or a vacuum?
Answer: It is a carpet and upholstery cleaner

Question: What brand/type of cleaner have you used on microfiber upholstery?
Answer: I use the Hoover Clean Plus stuff. works fine for my needs.

Question: How many amps is it? One person said 16 (not likely) another said 3.5.
Answer: 120 v. 60Hz. 3.5 A

Question: Will it detail clean my car seats and car mats?
Answer: Yes you cold clean your car seats and car mats, but you would need to be careful when doing car seats to avoid over saturation. I would definitely do the car mats, but I’m not sure the suction is strong enough should the water penetrate too deeply into the padding of the car seat. Be sure to pretreat stains.

Question: can you use this on tile floors
Answer: My wife says she doesn’t know why not. It’s made for carpet but should work fine on tile.

Question: I have new carpet that has the 10 pound memory foam pad plus the carpet itself is thick. Will this leave behind a soaking wet feel to the carpet?
Answer: Yes, it cleans but it does not have good suction. I use this for my car only.

Question: Will the brush attachment from another hover carpet cleaning machine work?
Answer: I don’t have another Hoover machine so I don’t know if that would work

Question: does it come with handle
Answer: The handle is the hole on the top of the unit.

Question: Why no mention anywhere of the size of the water tank?
Answer: I don’t know what the capacity is. I filled it twice to do a full size sofa, love seat, and chair. I hope that helps! It was a great little cleaner, easy to handle too!
