Hoover steamvac spinbrush leaks bottom when attaching cleaning tool

Whenever I attach the cleaning tool, the cleaning solution leaks from the bottom. When I turn the machine on, it spays out the side too. The machine works fine if I am not using the tool. When I am done using the tool, I have to run the vac over the carpet to **** up the leak. Not sure what is going on. Please help.

SOURCE: Leaking Hoover Steamvac

Either you have a crack in the tank and it is running down the indise of the handle and going out the bottom, or there is a water line off either under where the tank sits or under the top cover.

SOURCE: Water leaking out bottom with hose attached

The water hose plugs into the solution valve-pressure on the side of the noozle(bottom). There may be a water line that has come loose there, you will have to take the top off to get to it.

SOURCE: Clean water coming out of sides

Hoover SteamVac Ultra (model F5883-900) Threw it away, and had to buy a new machine. Sorry, but I found it more difficult to deal with the housing unit on the machine and just couldn't deal with it anymore. I hope you have better luck than I did with it. I couldn't find ANY help on ANY web sites for this model, just too old I guess.

SOURCE: my steamvac leaks from the clean water tank

you have either a cracked housing, or a valve is stuck open. if you can spray a small amount of wd49 into the valve, and work it a little, youmay be able to dislodge whateverdeposits have built up in there.

SOURCE: my Hoover steam vac dual

This is a common problem with the earlier models which had a separate soap tank glued to the clean water tank. The plastic was too thin beneath the valve on the clean water side and would develop cracks. You most likely will need a new one piece tank. ( Part # 42272104)

Why is water pouring out the bottom when I try to use upholstery attachment?


On many hoover models the hose attaches to the vacuum and is held on by a clip on the hose assembly. There may be some damage to your hose or the place where it attaches to the machine. Inspect these areas trying to locate the point of the leak.

Why does my Hoover F5906 Leaks from the bottom?


Water (cleaning solution) is gravity fed to the floor cleaning brushes, but the attachment hose is fed from a small pump. If it only leaks when turned on and operating, check the pump for leaks at the pump itself or the connecting hoses.

Model 5835-900 leaks when using the hand tool


Take the 4 screws that hold the hood out and remove the hood. Hook up the hand tool line and watch for where the water comes out. It is more than likely the tool valve has failed.

I took my nozzle apart on my hoover steam vac because it leaked water all the time, now I cannot get the back together

Bissell will spray water when set to water rinse, but as soon as it is set to light, normal, or heavy cleaning, there is no spray. I have tried priming but to no avail. I put plain water in the solution...


Please check the following with liquid in both tanks.


- Check to see if the machine will spray through the hose with the setting on tools. If it does, the pump is fine. Continue troubleshooting.

- Check for debris on spray tips. Clean them with a soft brush (on old tooth brush works well). The spray tips may be lifted out for easier access.

- Ensure the tank lid is properly attached to the bottom of the tank. To attach this properly, remove the Water Tank from the machine. Hook the front window onto the lip of the bottom container and then allow the window with lid to cover the complete tank. Secure the latch on the back of the bottom tank to the back of the tank lid. THE TANK LID CANNOT BE ATTACHED PROPERLY IF THE BOTTOM TANK IS ALREADY INSTALLED IN THE MACHINE.
- Check the bottom of the Water Tank and the Formula Tank to make sure each has a red auto-load gasket attached. Make sure the Water Tank and the Formula Tank are seated properly. Depress the x on this gasket to ensure this depresses and release back out. Liquid from the tank should dispense.

- Remove the handle completely and re-attach. Once the handle is re-attached, re-attempt to spray.


If the machine continues to not spray, check the following:


REMOVE THE COLLECTION TANK:
• Make sure the unit is set to water rinse
• Remove the smart mix bottle and fill it with water only
• Place the smart mix bottle into the collection tank reservoir
• Run the unit and try to spray. If the machine sprays, you will be able to see the water level decreasing in the smart mix bottle and you will need to replace the bottom tank. It is possibly warped.

If these suggestions do not resolve your issue, contact BISSELL Consumer Services.

Hi, the Hoover f5915-900 that we have is leaking the clean solution when we are using the attachment. but the leakage seems to be coming from the bottom of machine


With this style of machine there are hoses, or connections to transfer the cleaning solution. these can fail after some time. Stop using the machine, leaking fluid onto the internal parts can become a electricution/fire hazard. take the unit to a service center for repair.

Severe water leak at the bottom when turned on.


It sounds like the tubing that is suppose to be hooked to two spray nozzles has come loose. You will have to take that dirt tank off, then turn the machine upside down and take the two screws out that hold the hood on from the bottom by the brushes, and then turn the machine back upright and take the screw from the top out. You should be able now to take the hood off and see all the tubing exposed. There is only one tube that goes to the spaying part in the front and see if it needs to be pushed back onto its' barbed fitting. Put that back on and put the hood back together. That should get you going.

My Hoover Carpet Cleaner is leaking out the bottom when I use the hand tool


this could be the little white valve that the water comes out of, if its leaking from here or if its leaking at the bottom of the machine it could be the pump
