After the first few months, one of the tabs that holds the dirty water tank broke. Not a big deal, as it doesn't appear to impact how it works.
The connections between the clean water tank/shampoo and the nozzles have leaked since day one. Not enough (at first) to worry about it. It was initially enough to where I thought that was 'normal' due to the connection types. There was always water/soap leaking under the unit after I turned it off.
There were a few occurrences where the machine didn't dispense any water/solution to clean. It took almost five minutes of going back and forth before it eventually worked.
For some reason, everytime I filled the clean water, there appears to be shampoo in the tank and it foams up. I have NEVER put shampoo in the clean water side of the tank. There must be some internal mixing/backwash that gets back into the tank.
If you are cleaning a large job, and need to empty the dirty water tank, expect the water to drip all over as you move the tank. There are two 'external' places that it will come from as you remove the tank. Two channels in the front, and a mesh piece in a corner.
An inch-long plastic square rod (for lack of a better term) is all that rotates ALL of the bushes. One piece. It sheared off after a little over a year. Hoover wants $35 for the replacement part, since I am 3 months out of warranty I understand the concept of time-limited warranties. This machine cost almost $200 when I bought it, and about $0.05 of plastic was its undoing.
Overall, the plastic does not seem very durable for this machine. We took very good care of this machine, and it did not return the favor.
It was purchased in 1/2013, and died in April of 2014. For almost $200, that is not acceptable. As soon as it is feasible, we will be replacing this unit with a Bissell.
Though I would not buy this cleaner again, I generously gave it two stars instead of one for few reasons; (1) I used this cleaner a lot and it probably would have lasted longer in another home. (2) Maybe I should have cleaned it more often during use? The brushes would gather clumps of pet hair and carpet fiber, which probably put resistance on the failed gear (I still think it is a bad design). I still kept the shampooer pretty clean and keeping it much cleaner would not have been reasonable to expect. (3) Plenty of people seem happy with this shampooer so it is not a complete lemon. (4) Maybe I did not take precautions to reduce strain on the gears? Should I have tilted the shampooer back, turned the power off, and then waited until the brushes stopped spinning?
It's a shame that the brushes seem to be an unreasonable weakness with this unit because it really did a great job cleaning the carpets. The scrubbing was very effective (when working) and the suction was powerful so little water remained.
I ordered a new turbine brush gear for about $40 and I will repair the shampooer myself. Even if it works like new, I am giving it away and I am going back to Bissell.
I changed my two stars rating to one! I had emailed Hoover asking them for a replacement part number before I found it online. I must say they were fast to respond, but only to tell me this:
"For safety and liability reasons, Hoover does not provide electrical components, motor or related parts directly to consumers. To avoid possible injury or voiding of your warranty, we strongly advise that you have electrical repairs done by an authorized Hoover Service Technician.
The part(s) that you are inquiring about may be available from the dealer(s) listed below. Please call for price and availability. If these locations are unable to assist you, additional locations can be found by visiting http://hoover.com/locator/."
Hoover customer support was of no assistance. I am not paying to repair what was a $175 shampooer. The cost of the repair would probably be more than half the cost of the shampooer.
