Tank for Hoover SteamVac continuously cracking

I have had my Hoover (model F7425-900) for 3 years. Of the 5 times that I have used it, I have ended up with a crack in the clean water tank 3 times. Is this a common problem with this model? If I choose not to keep it, is is possible to send it back to Hoover? Replacement on this part is $30+, I am frustrated and my wallet is exhausted!

Re: Tank for Hoover SteamVac continuously cracking

It sounds like something is putting a lot of torque (twisting pressure) on the clean water tank that may be causing it to crack under usage. When you place the tank into the "upper" opening, then push it in until it "clicks", are you "forcing" it? If it doesn't seat easily you may be creating the torque and under usage it may break or crack. My clean water tank only cracked once. It went down a 15-step stairwell all by itself. I think they (Hoover) should make clean water tanks that can at least go down 20-steps. But ... that's just me.

Re: Tank for Hoover SteamVac continuously cracking

I use shoe goo or similar product to glue the cracks together. I have fixed large holes this way and it works fine. It is best done when cracks first appear. If cracks are minor then super glue might also work but if it is major or there are holes then shoo goo does the trick and it is a permanent fix.

My upolstry ad=ttachment is not working no sucking up dirty water

Greetings from GoVacuum,

This is a frequent problem for the Hoover SteamVac models. What's usually happening is that the hose on the vacuum cleaner is damaged, and needs to be replaced.

You can verify this by reclining the handle of the SteamVac all the way down to the ground. Then take out the dirty water solution tank from the SteamVac. You can see where the hose connects into the steam vac, 9 times out of 10 the hose will be cracked right at the point where the end of the hose is connecting into the SteamVac, and needs to be replaced.

There are several different versions of this attachment hose, varying from model to model. If this is the problem,a nd you would like to know which hose goes to your specific model, please send me an email to chris.jones (at) govacuum (dot) com.

Also if this is not the problem, please just request a clarification for this page, and I can help you further diagnosis this problem.

Hoover Steam Vac V2 Deep Cleaner leaking clean water

Fill the tank and determine if the plastic is leaking, or if the valves are leaking. if the tank is cracked, it would need replaced. There is an improved design now available.

You may cycle the valves on the bottom with the eraser end of a pencil.

Have a Hoover SteamVac with 5 brushes and it will not suck up any water and I have cleaned all the brushes but it still wont pick up any water

I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. Part of the problem is with your holding tank, there is a rubber gasket that seals the unit to pup the water and if that gasket is cracked or missing it will not pup. Also there could be something wrong with the suction motor or the Hoover SteamVac may be clogged and will not pup the water, if there is a way to say back track the suction then follow the suction back to the suction motor and if you see a clog – remove it. Otherwise you may have a bad suction motor and it would need replacing as a last resort. If the Hoover SteamVac is less than one year factory warranty it would be covered under the Hoover factory warranty and then feel free to contact the local Hoover Factory Authorized Dealer in your area, so call the cust serv @ Hoover and they can direct you to a dealer that would cover this under warranty. So, please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or in the yellow pages, or contact the factory phone number or website to further assist you with your questions.
