Hoover steam vac spin scrub leaking cleaning solution

The steam vac I have is leaking cleaning solution from the bottom of the vac even when I'm not pressing the solution trigger. It does this whenever it is on or off. Anytime there is fluid in the vac. I can't figure out if it is clean solution or dirty water but it never used to do this. I haven't used in in about a year and I think I have it put together correctly. What would cause this?

    The plastic connector that goes into the black rubber hose for the fluid broke.


    I have opened the machine and pried the broken end piece out of the rubber hose and then used Aqua Mend epoxy and glued the plastic pieces back together....(make sure you put a screwdriver inside the broken part all the way through to make sure you don't close the hole with the epoxy....water/solution has to flow through this part) replaced the rubber hose and hopefully it will work ??

The hose leading from the tank to the sprayer head on the bottom of the unit, or the tank is not seated properly or the tank has a hole or crack

There is a seal that is located where the transfer hose connects to the actual filling tank. this will need to be replaced. also, make sure the trigger isn't getting stuck slightly in the open position.

The problem is that underneath the tray where the clean water/solution tank sits it leaks. It is not the rubber seal! I'm having the same problem as I'm typing this.

That piece in the picture I posted screws in and is supposed to serve as a seal from underneath. However the solution and water leak out from the sides which results in the leak problem.

My clean solution tank is leaking from the bottom, too. It is not a hose or a valve. The clean solution tank is leaking in-between the clear plastic walls of the solution tank & the grey plastic bottom that are connected, together. I was thinking of caulking it all around the bottom where the clear plastic sides join the grey bottom plastic. I can't get into ordering a new one (spending $) unless Hoover will send me a new one for free. Purchased at Kohl's in Massapequa, NY in June 2008. There's a one year warrantee AND the directions say to EMPTY the solution tank after each use. Which I normally do because the tank runs dry.

Every time I use my New Hoover steam vac it leaks all the time I've tried every thing, I even bought a new tank same problem, I'm not taking it to be repaired its the 3rd one thats done it an


After the second time I would have asked for a refund. Maybe you need to do some diagnostic work.

1. Does it leak while sitting unplugged?
2. Does it leak while plugged in but not being operated?
3 Does it leak when the solution is above or below a certain level.
4. Are you over filling it?
5. Does it leak only when you pull the trigger? (valve problem)

Keep asking yourself questions to discover where and why it's leaking.

Good luck.

No water dispenses from my hoover ultra steam vac model F5883-900 when the trigger is squeezed.


Remove the clean water tank and look in the opening just behind the black grommet. Operate the trigger - you should see the valve move downward as the trigger is pressed. If it is NOT moving, then you will need to have the trigger plunger shaft repaired/replaced

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.

Hoover Steam Vac clean water tank valve leaks


a) make sure that there is not a place for a stair attachment. If
there is make sure air is not leaking through where the attachment goes
on because of damaged or misplaced fitting.

b) some steam vacs leave water behind them and **** up in front of
them. If you just walked forwad with the steam vac nothing would be
sucked into the tank.

c) try taking your finger off the trigger and using the steam vac. If
the tank still empties the trigger is stuck open.

d) try putting clean water in the dirty water tank only and using it on
a dry rug. If water goes somewhere from the dirty water tank you have
a leak.

e) take apart what you can and look at the parts. A good visual
inspection can solve many of these types of problem if you are careful
not to miss anything.
