Question about Hoover SteamVac F5914-900 SpinScrub Upright Vacuum
When i try to use my hand tool on my steam vac there is a huge puddle
of water under the vac where it has leaked how do i fix that??
Others on this forum have indicated the same problem - but no solutions - can anyone help??
I have the same problem with my hoover steam vac, different model but same problem. So I have had it for 2 years and never used the attachments because the thing leaked out the bottom when i tried. So today I tried to find a solution online and found nothing. So I started toying with the thing and found a solution for my model and I hope it will work for everyone else. I don't have a stair attachment so this goes for the upholstery cleaning attachment. I noticed right where my upholstery attachment connects to get soap, there is a second hole that is covered by a white rubber seal when the cover for the connection area is closed. I put a plastic bag, or anything to seal it, into this hole to make a tight seal. Tried the machine and worked like a champ. So Would be nice if hoover supplied a plug for that, but oh well worked for me hope it works for others with a hoover steam vac.

I just had this same problem (with my girlfriends fathers hoover, no less!) I had the cleaner on a tile floor trying to use the hand attachment on the sofa, and I noticed the puddle. When I put the cleaner on a carpet, it seemed to work fine. Not sure if it wasn't creating a "vaccuum" on the tile or what, but it seemed to remedy it. Also, make sure the hose it attached securely at the base.

Are you hooking up the water atttachment for the hose. If not try that should hook up on the right side. If this model does not have that option or you do have that hooked up then it is the solenoid which you can get through Sears parts direct
