Question about Hoover F7458-900 Upright Vacuum

Hoover Steam Vac Clean Water Streams from Unit

My Hoover F6025900 just streams clean water to the carpet whether it is turned on or off. I have inspected the unit for poor o-rings and seals and this is not the case. The clean water tank does not have any problems unit after it sits in the unit, then without using the control lever, the water streams out like I am in ''rinse'' cycle whether it is on or not.

I may be wrong but it appears that the solution and water are gravity fed until it reaches an area where electrically it turns it off and on. I just cannot locate that area.

Thanks.

Hello there,

Are you certain on the model number of your Hoover vacuum, I can't seem to find any reference to that anywhere online.

Either way, I am familiar with these steam cleaning type vacuums. The electrical control for the spray portion is located in the actual base of the unit, below where the water / solution sits. It is actually very complicated to take this portion apart and attempt a manual repair without extensive knowledge of the vacuum system. It is very easy to damage the unit further without thorough knowledge of the electrical systems in the vacuum. You would be much better off taking it to a local service center. On Monday I would give Hoover a call at 1-800-944-9200 and they can direct you to the nearest location that is certified to work on Hoover vacuums.

My Hoover steam vac dual v clean water and detergent tank leaks water before attached to the vac and during cleaning


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)

Hoover Steam Vac V2 Deep Cleaner leaking clean water


Fill the tank and determine if the plastic is leaking, or if the valves are leaking. if the tank is cracked, it would need replaced. There is an improved design now available.

You may cycle the valves on the bottom with the eraser end of a pencil.

There is no steam on my hoover steam vac


They do not really "steam." They use hot water to clean your carpets with a mix of cleaner as well. You will not see your unit actually steam.

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.

Well there is no belt, and not sure what the rubber would be from, everything is plastic or metal. Unless it is really an electrical smell, which means the motor is going bad.

You might try running a solution of vinegar and water thru it to clean out the lines and spray nozzles. Also are the brushes turning when you are using it, that could also be the problem.

There are screws on the bottom to remove, then near the back on each side, the is a catch to release. Before you turn it over, there is a screw where the water intake is near the top to remove.
