Question about Hoover SteamVac F5914-900 SpinScrub Upright Vacuum
Hi, I have a Hoover Steam Vac Deluxe F5860-900. Lent it out and it came back leaking from cleaning solution tank. I noticed the rubber seal from the tank bottom came off inverted and was sitting on the machine where it connects. It was a little mis-shapen so I bought a new one just in case the old one won't seal tightly. My problem lies in figuring out how to properly install the seal. It seems obvious but the process is not as easy as it seems. Don't want to damage the new one so I've been trying with the old one. Can't get it to fit inside the hole. (I think the small end of the seal goes inside the lip of the tank but getting it in there without destroying the seal is my problem) Any suggestions??
Thanks in advance
Not sure this will help, but we have a Hoover Steamvac F5843 and our valve seal seemed to have shrunk so the tank was leaking. Bought a new seal and had the same problem. How to install? There weren't any instructions or pictures of the part(s) involved in the manual. Online there were a few pics but nothing helpful. After careful examination of the existing part and where it was supposed to be, I removed the original off the valve stem, placed the new one on it and carefully pressed the valve stem with the seal into place. It didn't look quite right and we were thinking "now what?". My wife and I got the idea at the same time...install the clean water tank (with the stem & seal in the bottom) back onto the steam cleaner. I took it back off to see what the stem & seal looked like afterwords and voila...the seal was perfectly inserted where it should be and the tank no longer leaks! The 'peg' that presses up on the valve stem pushed the seal perfectly in place.
