Question about Hoover SteamVac Carpet/Upholstery Deep Cleaner Vacuum
My Hoover Steam Vac clean water tank valve leaks as soon as I fill the clean water tank up. I can hold the tank in the air over the sink and see a stream of water running out the valve. The rubber seal looks in great shape and still very pliable, but my guess is that it's leaking inside the tank where the valve must have a rubber seal I can't see from the outside. I've activated the valve by hand many times and it springs down into the shut position nicely. I opened the valve and shook the tank with warm water in it with the hope of dislodging anything that might be stuck in the valve. None of this has helped. Is there a way to take the valve out of the tank and clean or replace it? Thanks.
A) make sure that there is not a place for a stair attachment. If
there is make sure air is not leaking through where the attachment goes
on because of damaged or misplaced fitting.
b) some steam vacs leave water behind them and **** up in front of
them. If you just walked forwad with the steam vac nothing would be
sucked into the tank.
c) try taking your finger off the trigger and using the steam vac. If
the tank still empties the trigger is stuck open.
d) try putting clean water in the dirty water tank only and using it on
a dry rug. If water goes somewhere from the dirty water tank you have
e) take apart what you can and look at the parts. A good visual
inspection can solve many of these types of problem if you are careful
not to miss anything.

Honey! It's broke. You can manuever the little black valves out, but you will only find the hole in the clean water tank. I have the EXACT same problem. My advise to you is to take the valves, caps and handle off, sell them on EBAY and then buy you a whole new clean water tank.
