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.

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 Hoover SteamVac is an upright, self-contained carpetcleaning machine. The machine features five rotating brushes and on-boardstorage for a hand-held upholstery tool with an 8-foot hose.
But itis not that much difficult to re-attach the Hoover SteamVac nozzle. Here, a weblink, with full procedure and diagrams, which will help you to re-attach iteasily - http://hoover.com/file/624/.
Hope this will help you. Good Luck.
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 ).
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.
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.

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. http://www.hoover.comTelephone Contact our Customer Service Department at 1.330.499.9499 Monday through Friday 8 a.m. - 7 p.m. EST Thanks,Don – The Vac Man Go Ahead.Use Us.
You didn't give your model number, but if this is a V2, you may have a crack in the tank, alot of times it is underneath the seal on the bottom. Or the plunger at the bottom of the tank is stuck open or missing.
