Water leaking When I fill the canister portion with hot water and put it in my machine it immediately begins to leak out the bottom. It has just started doing this. Do I need to take it in for repair?

The water tanks on this unit have had a very bad history of leaks. Most of the repair people had never heard of this unit, but one did, and had a spare set of tanks. If the unit is still under warranty, it is worth your while to get a replacement unit. Call Eureka, and ask them how to get a replacement unit, especially if you are having more than one issue with the unit (such as leaking, no heat, broken upholstery nozzle, etc.). I had success in sending back the serial number plate and a detailed list of my problems. They sent me a new unit, and I was able to get at least one unit working properly. Some repair men may be able to fix leaks in the seals on the tank. Hold the tank up and if it leaks, well you got your problem! Eureka will not solve your problem, I've discovered they like to let their service depots handle their junk. Most service depots can give you a solution if they are worth their salt. If the service depot can still get tanks, go that direction. If no replacement tanks are available, call Eureka for a whole unit.

We have a Hoover Steamvac F7452 that is leaking water from the bottom of the machine. If we place the water tank on the machine, water immediately starts flowing through to bottom of the machine. It'


When you put the tank on it connects with the unit and opens the valve on the bottom of the tank to allow the water to flow check for debris hair etc around the connection, it is possible the seal itself is worn or bad and needs replacement but I think the trigger only lets air in the tank so the water will flow out by gravity, I'm not positive on this but mine works that way.

How do I cycle the valves on the bottom with the eraser end of a pencil on my hoover dual vac shampooer


The center part of the valve (stem) pushes up (spring loaded) to release liquid. If it leaks it can (and should) be replaced. Also, check the black valve seal (conical shaped ring around the outside) for cracks or splits as this can contribute to leaks. The entire valve assembly (similar to photo) should be replaced to solve both issues.

Water is coming from bottom when useing the hose.


You'll have to find out where it's leaking! Its not real hard. I will help you!

1. Fill the clean water tank. Check that the valve on this tank doesn't let water through when not on the machine. If it does this the tank is the problem.
2. Take off the 4-6 phillips screws holding the hood on to the machine. They will be on each corner underneath. Be Gentle! Do not break any of the plastic parts.
3. Check where the clean water comes to a L valve. This valve is a very common problem. Place the water tank on the machine. DO NOT hold the handle down. Use paper towel to check for wet spots if you can't see where it is leaking. It should be fairly obvious.
4. If the water is coming from the "back" of the machine or the handle pry the cover off the inside of the handle revealing the hoses. The water release valves may be leaking. Be sure to check all hoses for cracks or breaks. Simply find the water.. and trace it back.

90% of the time it is the L valve which looks like this:

Carefully put the machine back together not forgetting anything and test!

Good Luck!!

Little Green pro heat is leaking from bottom with very little suction. I just purchased it.


Try the following suggestions for the leaking issue:

- Check to see if the black or white "duck bill" gasket is misassembled or missing from the collection tank; ensure the gasket will open where the flat flaps meet and then reinstall it. The duck bill should be inserted into the curved side of the collection tank.
- Check to see if the solution tank/cap insert is leaking.
Note: When the solution tank is filled and turned right side up, the straw on the insert may fill with water/solution causing the tank to leak for a couple of seconds. This leaking should subside after the straw empties out.
- Check for proper placement of the o-ring on the cap insert. The o-ring should be between the bottle and the insert piece (part with the "straw").
Try the following for the suction issue.
- Remove the Collection tank and locate the circular motor duct on the base of the machine. Turn the machine on and feel for suction at this location. If you feel suction proceed as follows:
- Remove the gasket from the bottom of the Collection Tank. Ensure that this gasket is open (not sealed shut) at the top of the gasket where the flaps meet. If the end is not open, simply squeeze the end to open it. The “duck bill” shaped portion of this gasket should align with the rounded side of the Collection Tank.
- Check to make sure there are no cracks in the flexible vacuum hose or in the tool you are using.
- Make sure the collection tank latch is locked down securely.
- Check for suction at the end of the hose with the attachment off by suctioning water out of the sink or a cup. If there is low/poor suction, check the hose for clogs by raising the hose handle above the unit to allow the water to go into the collection tank.
The issues may be related as you can see some of the suggestions are similar.

Leaking tank


(1) Does water or chemical leak from the tank when filled, but before it is installed? If not, then the tank is OK.
(2) If the tank is not properly aligned to the lower handle when assembled and latched, the black rubber seals on the handle will not seal to the tank. You may wish to look at this. Also, make sure both round black rubber seals are present on the flat mount where the tank valves will sit.

Water tank leaks


If the tank is leaking, when removed from the cleaner, it is not user serviceable.

Leaking


Could be that the despensing tank has melted and deformed at the connection point. This is what happened to me when I put in really hot tap water. The heat allowed the connection (where the water/soap outlet is) to deform when using it. Now when I fill the tank and place it in the machine the water just leaks out all over the place with no control.
If you look at the bottom of your tank, where the water comes out, you may be able to see that the plastic is mis-shaped or deformed slightly. It probably doesn't take much for the seal to be broken.

You put hot tap water (never boil water) into the clear bag through an opened hole in the canister. The dirty water will be correct outside of the bag. You remove the dirty water by open the valve at the bottom of the canister.

good luck

You didn't give your model number, but if this is a V2, you may have a crack in the tank, alot of times it is underneath the seal on the bottom. Or the plunger at the bottom of the tank is stuck open or missing.
