FAQs & troubleshooting of Hoover FH50251PC Power Scrub Elite

is this also an upholstery cleaner??
Answer: It comes with attachments that will allow you to clean upholstery.

Question: Does this include attachments that come with power scrub deluxe (spinscrub powered hand too, stair tool, upholstery tool & crevice tool, 8′ hose)?
Answer: I cannot respond to the question as I returned the product. I had issues with missing parts and contacted the manufacturer with the response “what do you expect us to do?”

Question: Does this model have an upholstery attachment
Answer: Yes there is.

Question: Whats the difference between this one and the one sold at home depot, other than the model #. Home depot model # is fh50252pc
Answer: This looks just like the one I got at Home Depot. I don’t know what the difference is.

Question: How easy is this model to clean? Do the pieces snap off or will I have to get out the toolbox like my last model?
Answer: I found this very easy to clean, no tools required. The pieces come apart and go back together with ease, cleaning the scrubber head was much simpler than I imagined. No tools required.

Question: What is the max temperature,you can put in this and not damage seals etc
Answer: My water heater is set to around 165 F and that has worked just fine. Considering the plastic parts and rubber seals, I would not even try anything above 180F.

Question: Does this carpet cleaner leak? All 3 of my hoover’s have leaked. The Power Scrub Deluxe, which also had motor problems. The Terrain,+ the Max Extract.
Answer: Have had limited use so far, but definitely no leaks. It does a great job of cleaning.

Question: Does this carpet cleaner Leak?
Answer: We have had absolutely no problems with leaks in the year or so that we’ve had it.

Question: Does this carpet cleaner leak
Answer: No, I’ve used mine several times due to an older incontient dog and it is very secure, no leaks.

Question: Will this do well with berber carpet that has cat hair?
Answer: I don’t know however it’s the best carpet cleaner I’ve used

Is there a stair attachment?
Answer: Yes it does and the whole machine works great.

Question: How heavy is this machine
Answer: Actual weight I don’t know, similar to using a vacuum cleaner.

Question: Is this for one or two units?
Answer: One unit. Great cleaner! The very best I’ve ever used!

Question: Does this work for just regular vacuming? If you dont need to remove a spot but just want to vacuum
Answer: Not designed to handle dirt off the floor. No real filter system for vacuuming.

Question: Do the rotating brushes float up and down or are they supposed to be locked in position?
Answer: I believe they are supposed to float up ave down freely as a sort of automatic height adjustment. I have another hoover shampooer with the same rotating brushes and they float freely as well.

Question: Are the rotating brushes, and it’s rectangular piece supposed to move up and down? (Is there “play” w the piece?
Answer: Dont know about them but DO know you will likely have trouble with fluids draining out all at once due to defective piece. This told to me by repair man when i topk mine in. He hates this model.

Question: Can this be used on tile?
Answer: Not sure but I wouldn’t think would work

Question: does this also work on hardwood floors
Answer: Hi! The Scrub Elite Pet is not equipped with a squeegee for bare floor cleaning. Should be used only on carpet and upholstery. Hope this helps!

Question: does it heat the water
Answer: No

Question: How easy is it to clean the unit itself after use?
Answer: The Hoover FH50251PC is very easy to clean. After I use it, I’ll spend five to ten minutes cleaning it. I does take some time to dry the internal “chambers” to dry, but that is not any real concern.
