SOURCE: 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.

I cannot see what the other expert suggested as the site doesn't allow it.I would like a little better description please but I will take a guess at what is normal procedure.I guess the water tank is already full and when you turn on the switch for water,excessive amount comes out?Or if the machine is just sitting there,when you attach the water tank to start to use,water comes out without turning it on.You said you took it apart too.The bottom end attaches to a tube or some type of valve control I would say.If the water flows out as if nothing is there,maybe almost a gush,the valve is probably stuck open.Another possibility could be that if the valve is controlled by an electronic component,that may be telling it to stay open.I checked out Hoover parts for your model but it wasn't very helpful.If I could see what they are,it would immensely help to figure it out.There may be a rubber seal or gasket at the bottom of the water tank,if the leak is slow it could be that.You said it is practically unuseable though so that is not likely.If you can remove the panel to the output end of the tank,you should be able to see what the valve is doing.There are all kinds of safety features probably so everything else will probably need to be in place to try and see what's going on during operation.Like I said though,I cannot tell if the unit is on or just when you attach the tank with it off when it leaks.Please let me know about that.When you reply to this post I will get an auto link.Thanks,Greg

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)
