Try to look for small holes or cracks and even the tank.use clamps to make sure your hose is firmly attached.

You have either a cracked housing, or a valve is stuck open. if you can spray a small amount of wd49 into the valve, and work it a little, youmay be able to dislodge whateverdeposits have built up in there.

How do you remove the lower handle?


Check the clean water holding tank. I had this problem and found that was a crack near the outlet on the bottom of the tank. I replaced the tank and resolved the problem. I have taken this machine apart several times, if the tank is not the problem with yours, check the water tube.

The clean water tank is leaking terribly


This was a common problem for the models that were manufactured with a two piece tank. These tanks will have a colored soap container attached to a clear water tank. The plastic was too thin around the valves and would crack. You need a new style one piece tank ( # 42272104 ).

Let me start out with an apology. I did not ask my question very well - and you did not answer it as I needed.
If you wish, we MAY be able to communicate in your native language. We can do most indian languages, Turkish, Ukranian and some Russian - as well as Spanish. If any of those are easier for you - please feel free to use any of them.

The Machine storage tanks are 2 - one clean water, one dirty water.
I understand that, when OFF, no leaks happen.
I understand that when on a leak comes from "the side". Also, water comes from the bottom.

So, water comes out near the bottom brushes (even without trigger). Then, with trigger, MUCH water comes out near bottom brushes. Am I correct so far?

Water out the side concerns me. I am guessing that the bottom of the clean storage tank may have a small leak.
I am also guessing that the trigger valve (located in the small opening behind the black rubber seal that the clean water tank rests on) is not closing all of the way - or is broken (cracked).

Can you please remove the clean water tank and inspect the trigger valve with a torch (flash light). Can you see it open/close as you operate the trigger? Is it broken, cracked, or dirty?
If yes then it must be replaced. If no, the the storage tank is bad and must be repaired.

You inspect all of these things and you should be able to determine the failure. THEN, I an help you repair the failed item.

Cleaning solution leaks


It could be the lid on the container. If it isnt lined up absolutely perfect it tends to leak. You could make it tighter with a bit of ptfe tape. As these containers go into the machine lid down this is here mine leaks if Im not very careful.

Dirty water is leaking back out


After shut off all steamvacs will leak dirty water that was sucked up back out. There is always some left in the nozzle. If it is a large amount there is clogged filter that isnt allowing the proper suction. Refer to your manual or go to hoover.com to download one for cleaning directions.

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.

Constantly sprays water
Posted by elstretcho on Apr 25, 2008
Hoover F7452-900 SteamVac Upright Vacuum
I noticed recently that our Hoover F7452 All Terrain constantly sprays water. As soon as I turn it on, whether or not it's set to Rinse or Auto-Rinse, its leaking water at the brushes. I probably wouldn't have noticed but I attached the hand-held adapter to clean our stairs and when I was done there was a HUGE pile of water under the vac. I took everything off and cleaned really good and looked again this morning and its still doing it. Any ideas?

Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure.
You probably have a bad trigger release valve or a loose connection @ the bottom of the SteamVac or the gasket under the solution tank in not sitting on there right and is leaking or you may have a small cut in the hose, but it so may guess that it is a bad trigger release valve or a bad gasket. Check with your local vac dealer to see if they have a new or a good used one to see if there is the problem or back track the problem from the bottom to the solution tank. So If you need further assistance, please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or in the yellow pages, or contact the factory phone number or website to further assist you with your questions.

Try gently feeding a thin, springy wire down the tube to find is there is a blockage further up.
