Question about Hoover F7452-900 SteamVac Upright Vacuum
Machine turns on and sounds like it's working, but won't dispense water or solution. I cleaned valve as suggested in the owners manual, but still not working.

On the bottom of the tank is a valve, push it in and see if water comes out Where the tank sits, there is a black round seal, is it in the proper place? The rod in the handle hits just under that seal, with the tank off, you can see if the rod is movin up and down when you depress the trigger. The resevior asm. may be bad, that is what the tank sits on.

With the tank off, can you see if the rod in the handle is hitting the spot where the tank sits on, if not then there is a problem in the handle. If it is, then the reservior asm may be bad, it is what the tank sits on.

SOURCE: won't dispense cleaning solution
I had this same problem. There is a solution posted elsewhere on this website. Search for Hoover Floormate H3000.
The following solution is the one I tried: Remove the fluid dispensing tank and put a small dab of hot glue on the tip of the blue/greyish "plunger" piece that is located in the middle of the black rubber circle. Let the hot glue dry (this forms an extension to the plunger piece...) and replace the fluid tank.
I did this and my machine is working properly again! Whoever posted this solution was very helpful!

I had the same problem with my Hoover Floormate H3000 and found the solution elsewhere on this website. Try doing a search for Hoover Floormate H3000. The posted solution is basically as follows:
Remove the liquid dispenser tank and set it aside. Look into the cavity of the machine where the tank attaches and find the plastic "plunger" piece (the one on my machine is a blue/grey color) that is surrounded by a black rubber circle. Put a small drop of hot glue on the tip of this plastic "plunger" piece and let it harden. Replace the liquid dispenser tank and try the machine again. My machine dispensed liquid properly after this fix-it.
I really appreciate the poster who provided this simple solution!

Clogging of the pump that sprays water/cleaning solution is very common in Hoover and Bissell Steam Vacs. Try running a cycle of 1part vinegar or CLR to 3 parts warm, distilled water through the vacuum pumps. The heads get clogged with soap and the water pumps get clogged at the opening of the flash heater due to minerals in hard water. If you want to extend the life of your steam vac, don't use the heater unless you are using distilled water. This can get expensive, so I recommend not using the heater.
