Question about Hoover F7220900 SteamVac V2 Upright Vacuum

2 Answers

Hoover model 6024-900 SteamVac

The trigger/valve does not control the flow of fluuid from the tank to the brushes,. The valve is always open regardless of the trigger position. It appears(visually) that the rigger operates the linkage to the valve assembly but the valve fails to close. I assume the valve is designed to be normally closed but it apparently is always open and the mechanism fails to close when the trigger is released.

It maybe that a water line has come off, where does it appear to be running out? Bottom of the tank, or down below, Bottom of the tank may have a bad seal or has a crack under the the seal, on the platform where the tank sits on has 2 or 3 tubes that hook up to it, check to make wure they are on, or a line could have come loose at the bottom, there you would have to take the top cover off.

It sounds like the valve that actuates the flow of water is stuck open. Whether or not you could fix it depends on how the handle is configured. If the handle triggers something internally then it needs to be disassembled and the valve given some oil.

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.

Pump assembly

This model does not have a pump. The water flows from the tank by gravity when the trigger is depressed. A turbine assembly spins by the airflow which causes the brushes to spin

My Bissell proheat 2x will not stop spaying when the trigger is depressed, This happens only after the power is turned on and continues until the tank is drained or the power is cut.

I assume you mean that once the trigger is depressed it won't go back to it's original position. Like it's stuck on. I would look in that area for a broken or missing spring. I would also trace the control from the trigger to the valve that it opens and see that there isn't any build up keeping the valve open.

No water dispenses from my hoover ultra steam vac model F5883-900 when the trigger is squeezed.

Remove the clean water tank and look in the opening just behind the black grommet. Operate the trigger - you should see the valve move downward as the trigger is pressed. If it is NOT moving, then you will need to have the trigger plunger shaft repaired/replaced

Let me start out with an apology. I did not ask my question very well - and you did not answer it as I needed.
If you wish, we MAY be able to communicate in your native language. We can do most indian languages, Turkish, Ukranian and some Russian - as well as Spanish. If any of those are easier for you - please feel free to use any of them.

The Machine storage tanks are 2 - one clean water, one dirty water.
I understand that, when OFF, no leaks happen.
I understand that when on a leak comes from "the side". Also, water comes from the bottom.

So, water comes out near the bottom brushes (even without trigger). Then, with trigger, MUCH water comes out near bottom brushes. Am I correct so far?

Water out the side concerns me. I am guessing that the bottom of the clean storage tank may have a small leak.
I am also guessing that the trigger valve (located in the small opening behind the black rubber seal that the clean water tank rests on) is not closing all of the way - or is broken (cracked).

Can you please remove the clean water tank and inspect the trigger valve with a torch (flash light). Can you see it open/close as you operate the trigger? Is it broken, cracked, or dirty?
If yes then it must be replaced. If no, the the storage tank is bad and must be repaired.

You inspect all of these things and you should be able to determine the failure. THEN, I an help you repair the failed item.

The machine turns on and the indicator seems to be spinning but the water is not moving.

Operating the trigger does not dispense water into the spinning brushes - is that the problem?

If so, remove the clean water tank and look in the opening behind the black grommet that seal the water tank. Operate the trigger and look to ensure that the valve is operating (moves downward when trigger is pulled). If it does not move, the trigger shaft is stuck or broken and will need to be repaired.

Cleaning solution tank dumping

in some cases the reservoir that the tank sits on would have to be replaced. best way to tell is, if you take the tank off and pour a little water in the valve where the rubber gramet is. if it holds the water its good, but if it goes down without you pressing the trigger then it will be the reservoir.

It is not sending liquid from upper tank to floor, but it does **** up liquid off the floor if I pour it there?

I tested the flow of liquid through the tubing and distributor by placing a small amount of liquid in the opening under the solution tank and making sure it drained when the solution trigger was pulled. Since the liquid did drain all the way to the brushes, it was apparent that the solution was not leaving the tank. In the center of the opening that receives the solution under the tank (round opening with rubber seal) there is a plastic pin that is supposed to push into the valve on the solution tank and open it sufficiently for liquid to pass through the valve. Since the plastic pin has not changed in length, I assumed that the rubber plunger in the bottom of the solution tank may be the problem. This rubber piece does not seem to be replaceable. Since I am very cheap, I am unwilling to buy a $30.00 solution tank to get a $.25 rubber plunger for this valve. My solution was to make the plastic pin a little bit longer. I did this by drilling a very tiny hole in the top of the pin and installing a very small screw which allows me to adjust the distance that the pin pushes up into the valve on the tank. I adjusted the screw almost all the way down and turned it up a little at a time until liquid once again flowed to the brushes. I have only used the machine once since this modification but it seems to dispense liquid very well now.

A word of warning, if you break or damage the pin in the process of this modification, the control valve assembly will not work and it does not appear to be available as a replacement part. If you are not confident in your ability to make the modification, then a $30.00 solution tank is cheaper than a new machine.
