Question about Hoover F7425-900 SteamVac V2 Widepath Upright Vacuum
I was using my steamvac and it was working fine. Then all of a sudden there was NO water and NO cleaning fluid being dispensed. I went thru the manual and found that I had to clean a screen inside a red holder under the cleaning brushes. I cleaned the screen and cleaned out the area under the cleaning brushes. I also cleaned all the plastic attachments that are mounted on the top of the machine. Still no water and no cleaning fluid. What did I miss?
Http://www.hoover.com/pdfs/manuals/F7452900.pdf Heres a link to the manual if you dont have one, Ive emailed them and they gave me the same solutions that are on page 17. ? Make sure tank is securely locked in position ? Clean water tank or detergent container empty ? Refill container according to instructions for surface being cleaned ? Recovery tank lid not on correctly ? Make sure lid is firmly in place ? Valve cap clogged ? Remove and clean valve cap (see following instructions) 1. Remove clean water tank. 2. Turn valve cap (A) counterclockwise and remove. Soak valve cap in warm water for at least 15 minutes. Wipe cap dry. 3. Align slots (B) on cap with tabs (C) in opening. Turn cap clockwise to tighten.

Under the detergent side, there is a metering plate,(located on the machine) which can be removed. ensure that this is installed. have you verified whether the machine will dispense detergent only without any water in the water tank?

If you are handy with a screwdriver undo the casing to access the roller. Once open usually about 4-5 screws you will see that the drivebelt ( rubber band ) has broken. This is the piece you need to replace. Usually most electrical store selling cleaners have these. Take the piece along or get the part number from the manual and replace it yourself. Cheaper than having a tech do it at $90 an hr plus the $5 part
