Hoover MaxExtract77 Multi Surface Pro Upright Vacuum - FH50240

MaxExtract® deep cleaners are designed to clean a variety of surfaces from carpets to couches and sealed wood floors to tiled floors. This versatile, easy-to-use machine removes water, dirt and grime with pressurized cleaning, and has heated drying for a fast dry time. Features a double chamber nozzle to power wash surfaces with even suction across a wide path, while the automatic detergent system provides the right ratio of detergent and water for the best cleaning results. Patented Hoover® SpinScrub® brushes gently loosen dirt and clean all sides of carpet and upholstery fibers, with an adjustable speed control for various floor surfaces, including a Spill Pick-Up mode so you don't scrub in spills.

Features:

  • MaxExtract® DualV® Nozzle Technology we're pulling up a lot of dirty water so your floors dry fast and you'll be back to living on those deep-cleaned floors quickly.
  • Pressurized Edge-to-Edge Cleaning a wall of pressurized water that loosens and lifts stubborn stains with constant and relentless spray.
  • SpinScrub® 77 counter-rotating brushes engineered to surround carpet fibers, removing dirt at every angle. It's like treating your carpet to a deep, massaging salon shampoo.
  • SpinScrub® Setting Options - sets your cleaning system by surface:
    • Spill Pickup Mode is suction only, without brush agitation action;
    • Gentle Scrub Mode rotates brushes at slower speed for ceramic tile, linoleum and sealed hardwood floors;
    • Power Scrub Mode maximizes scrubbing action for cleaning carpet and high-traffic areas.
  • Heated Cleaning powerful motor with forced heated air to help speed dry time.
  • Auto Conversion Tools conveniently positioned where they should be - right at your fingertips.
  • AutoRinse™ sets cleaner to wash with detergent on forward stroke, then automatically rinses with fresh water on the backwards stroke.
  • CleanSurge™ fingertip control applies extra detergent to stains and heavy traffic areas.
  • SmartTanks™ System separate tanks for clean and dirty water, so you can easily fill, empty and rinse each tank individually!

We have used Bissell carpet cleaners in the past and they were always a hassle to set up and use. In the past with other cleaners you always had to lay the cleaner back all the way to remove the tank to empty it, with this one it was a snap, just lift the tanks out with the product sitting upright. Emptying the tank was easy now that they have put an big spout on the back of the tank where you would expect to find it but it was never there on other products. When it was time to clean up afterwards (this is the step I dreaded the most from past experiences) in preperation for storing the product, I was extremely surprised how easy this was. I have to applaud Hoover and their Engineers with this product. Tanks can easily be removed without having to lay the entire product down flat, top of dirty water tank easily comes apart so you can clean the entire inside of the tank. This one feature is well worth the money because in the past the tank was not accessible for cleaning so you always left some dirt and water that would eventually start to stink to high heaven the next time you used the cleaner. You can also remove the front nozzle cover to clean up any dirt or hair that always seems to get stuck in other products. Lastly, the brush assembly on this product easily pops off so you can thoroughly rinse them and remove any hair that gets wrapped up in the bristles. The brush then easily snaps right back into place without having to worry about any tools or latches. I was so happy with the maintenece on this product I almost forgot to mention how well it actually cleaned my carpets, Carpets look as good as new and again I dont have to worry about this cleaner smelling the next time I pull it out to use it. Nice job Hoover!!!

We have 3 German Shepherds, so you can imagine that this gets used often. We bought it brand spanking new about a year and a half ago. Earlier this year the cleaning solution valve on the tank started leaking. Since the part that was defective is not user replaceable, we called and got a whole new tank. Well, here we go again, except this time both valves are leaking. Hoover! We need a RELIABLE, easy to empty, and easy to use Carpet Shampooer! I'm waiting on my return call from customer service right now! If you are thinking about buying this product, DON'T! It's too expensive and the tank valve design is defective.

Poor quality for a Hoover Machine

By 

from Undisclosed

Comments about Hoover MaxExtract77 Multi Surface Pro Upright Vacuum:

Bought this last winter, worked great first time out. Hasn't worked since! Will not suck dirty water up. All filters cleaned, no help. Tool hose broke at the base connection, never been used. I think there is some type of gear box that turns the brushes that has 2 screw posts that are broken. Tried to find a schematic so I could identify parts to reorder, none found. This machine is not Hoover quality!

Leakage

By 

from Staten Island, NY, United States

Comments about Hoover MaxExtract77 Multi Surface Pro Upright Vacuum:

This machine Leaks a ton! The hose nozzle continuously spills out water. The spray mechanism is not engaged, I have applied all of the suggestions provided from Hoover in order to fix this and the problem has not been resolved. Very disappointing.

By 

from Undisclosed

Comments about Hoover MaxExtract77 Multi Surface Pro Upright Vacuum:

We bought this a few months ago and now we have had the second part break on it. When it works it if FANTASTIC!! Superior to the previous model we had BUT the quality stinks. First, we couldn't use the attachment to clean stairs or upholstery because it leaks so bad and wouldn't stay connected. Hoover repair service took care of it but took almost two weeks to get the part. Now, the handle on the return tank broke so it doesn't lock in place to provide the proper suction. I do want to give this machine a great review for its performance when it works.

TOO MANY MECHANICAL PROBLEMS.

By 

from Rio Rancho, NM, United States

Comments about Hoover MaxExtract77 Multi Surface Pro Upright Vacuum:

Do not purchase this Hoover - Max Extract 77. I purchased one in 2010 and had to return it to be serviced over 5 times with in the first year. Such problems were: 'not dispensing soap, leaking water and solution, trigger defaulted, not deep cleaning, and just recently, dispensing the water/detergent but NOT picking up the excess water off the carpet like it should. I'm very disappointed as I am a big fan usally of Hoover Products. For example, I owned a 'Hoover Floormate Hard Floor Cleaner' for over two years and it did a great jog! I didn't have to replace anything; it just stopped picking up the water just recently. Yesterday, I purchased another hard floor cleaner (that's how much I like Hoover Products)!. However, this Hoover-Max Extract77 disappointed me (at first it did work well, like it should), but it had its share of issues. I cannot afford a new carpet cleaner right now but if I could I would try out the Hoover-Max66; after reading the reviews.

Very Frustrated - Loud Noise/Brush Issue

By 

from Conyers, GA, United States

Comments about Hoover MaxExtract77 Multi Surface Pro Upright Vacuum:

I've used the carpet cleaner twice and it started making a horrible noise. I've watched every video I could find to troubleshoot the issue. I think it's related to the brushes not turning but everything I've tried to clean/fix the problem doesn't seem to help.

Brushes stop rotating

By 

from Brooklyn, NY, United States

Comments about Hoover MaxExtract77 Multi Surface Pro Upright Vacuum:

I purchased this machine 2 months ago. It has great cleaning power. However, after only 2 months, the brushes stopped rotating. The problem was caused by a plastic post that attaches the brush housing to the machine. The post snapped off and is stuck in the machine - meaning that a replacement part is not a viable solution. Since I purchased the unit through Amazon, I will receive a new machine. However, I really wish Hoover would do something about the plastic post breaking off. This is the second Hoover cleaner I have had. The last one had the same problem, but I chalked it up to age and decided to. It a new one. That was probably a mistake. Hoover, please do something!!!! You have a great cleaning product -it just needs to be tweaked..

Worked well for a week and then started leaking

By 

from Barrie, ON, Canada

Comments about Hoover MaxExtract77 Multi Surface Pro Upright Vacuum:

We bought this unit a while ago and after using it twice - more or less satisfactory (I cannot emphasize how important it is to give it a lot of time to suck up the dirty water that it's dispensed into the carpet), the seal of the soap container became leaky to the point where it loses water at the same rate that it is being refilled. I've held a finger against the hole while refilling it but during transportation and insertion it makes such a mess. I was going to order a replacement tank, but apparently it's out of stock - which is no surprise, since this absolutely subpar construction seems to be a massive issue for many other customers. This was my first Hoover and it looks like it'll be my last one as well as it's impossible to use the unit right now without causing puddles all over the place due to the leakage.
