SOURCE: Hoover Steam Vac clean water tank valve leaks

Honey! It's broke. You can manuever the little black valves out, but you will only find the hole in the clean water tank. I have the EXACT same problem. My advise to you is to take the valves, caps and handle off, sell them on EBAY and then buy you a whole new clean water tank.

SOURCE: bissell spotbot: leaking the dirty

I had the same issue. After some research, I determined I was missing a black "duckbill" gasket on the bottom of the dirty water collection tank.

This caused reduced suction, and for the water to pool at the botom of the spotbot, thus leaking.

I purchased the gasket at Bissell for 1.39. The part number is 203-6646.

I purchased my SpotBot new from Target, and never remember seeing this black gasket, but the difference is night and day.

Vax carpet shampooer water tank leeking


If tank itself is leaking nothing you can do but replace it. Check it for cracks or leaks at sink. Make sure the round rubber seal it sets on is ok an not bent over or broken, also check the leaver to make sure it is not hing up an is working properly.

My Bissell proheat2x leaks water from bottom of machine, if you have the water tank full and cleaner and leave it sit it drains out onto the floor, it leaks when you are using it to, is this a seal or...


Nope, not a seal problem, just natural good old fashioned natural gravity. I know it doesn\'t take long for it to start leaking after use but Bissell covers this in the manual. Thoroughly clean the unit, run clean rinse water through every cycle and empty all tanks and cavities after use. Do not leave water in any of the tanks when not in use. What doesn\'t leak on your floor (which doesn\'t take long) could cause permanent blockages in the lines. It\'s a pain, I know, but I use the garage or back deck to park and prep mine after use.

Model F5892-900 Does not seem to be sucking up the solution/water. Is there something that may need to be cleaned out? If so, how? Thanks


The most common reason for lack of pick up is that the lid is not fully seated on the dirty water tank. A far less common reason for no pick-up is that the seal that the tank sits on has fallen off the motor cover suction tube. You will see a round tube on the bottom of the dirty water tank. This sits on top of a large rubber seal on the motor cover when the tank is in place. Be sure the seal has not fallen down into the hood.

Leaking tank


(1) Does water or chemical leak from the tank when filled, but before it is installed? If not, then the tank is OK.
(2) If the tank is not properly aligned to the lower handle when assembled and latched, the black rubber seals on the handle will not seal to the tank. You may wish to look at this. Also, make sure both round black rubber seals are present on the flat mount where the tank valves will sit.

Leaking Solution Tank/Seal Install - Hoover Steam Vac


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.

Leaking


If the seal and plungers are ok(bottom of tank), then most likely have a crack on the bottom of the tank, lot of times it will be under the seals, breaks away and will like out.

Water leaks


I removed the clean water tank to refill it and all the cleaning solution poured out onto the floor. Turns out a plastic pin with a spring and a rubber washer also fell out onto the floor leaving a hole in the bottom of the tank. Calls to Hoover and local repair center all ended the same with the need to order a new clean water tank for about $45 and two weeks for delivery. Went to my local True Value Hardware store and within a few minutes we found a workaround using two 7/16"x 1/4"x3/32" #780 Ring from Danco Inc. Pulled off the proprietary Hoover O Ring that had obviously failed and put two of these O Rings on in its place and so far it is working perfectly. Total cost $1.35. Would be nice if Hoover cared to take better care of their customers by offering this almost free and quick solution to the problem.
