My steam cleaner is leaking as soon as i put the clean water tank on machine

The most common reason for leakage is that the reservoir assembly has gone bad. If you look in the area behind the tank, you will see a rod that pushes down on a small round rubber seal when you squeeze the trigger. The assembly being pushed on is the reservoir, and the internal valve may be bad. This would require replacement of the assembly. ( Part # 43526016, msrp $6.49 ). Another possibility is that the seal that the tank sits on is worn or missing. There is a round black rubber seal that the tank sits on. There is a plastic pin in the middle which opens the tank outlet valve. I sometimes see this seal missing - usually because a child has pulled it off. If it is missing it must be replaced. ( Part # 38784060, msrp $1.29)

I have a Hoover V2 Steam Vac widepath and the


This is a notorious problem with the Hoover V2 SteamVac's. In fact the tank design by Hoover on your SteamVac was so bad, that Hoover redesigned this tank almost immediately due to the numerous problems customers were having.

For your particular problem, you really have two options. The first option is putting a bandaid over the problem, but will still fix it. We sell the entire gasket assembly on the bottom of the detergent tank as a replacement part. Unfortunately it's sold together with the seal, spring, and valve together as an assembly;

You also may wish to fix the problem completely by replacing the entire clean water solution tank. Hoover has redesigned this tank, and the new one I don't see near the amount of problems that I do on the older style tanks. The plastic is much more sturdy, and less prone to having the gasket and valve issues that the old tanks do. It's important to point out that the new tank does not come with the handle. You'll need to remove the handle from your old tank if you buy a new tank assembly complete. Rest assured that if you do purchase any part from GoVacuum, you'll have 60 days to return it for a full refund, just in case the repair doesn't work. Not only do we not deduct restocking fees or shipping charges, but we also include a return label with every order that you may use to return any item to us, and we'll even pay for your return shipping!

Here's the Hoover SteamVac V2 Clean Water Solution Tank, Part 12002549

If you'd like us to do a repair photograph series on this repair of the valve and gasket assembly, please just request a repair clarification here on Fixya, and we'll be happy to do so.

Hoover Steam Vac Dual Tank Bottom Valve Spring Assembly Part Needed

It appears that there is a problem with the o-ring design. The o-ring should maintain a certain OD dimension and keep the spring assembly from pulling throught the hole. I am trying to find the service manual to locate the o-ring part number but have had little luck so far. I think that hoover should have maybe used a higher derometer material.

Detergent won't dispense

Check the valve at the bottom of the tank, does it push up then come back by itself (part #43513014)? If it is ok, then there may be a problem with the plate that the tank sits on or the plunger inside the handle isn't pushing to release the detergent.

Tank Dispensing

Is the detergent tank cracked at the bottom, under the black seal? If so the whole tank asm. needs to be replaced. But if this is new, then it has a one years warranty on it and you can take in for warranty repair.

Low Suction/No Soap

Check the seal at the bottom of the dispenser, it needs to be on the valve not sitting in the hole, part 2101795 if you need to replace it. If suction is low, check the filter on the bottom of the tank lid, if clogged, suction will be low. Also check window gasket, sits between the tank and the nozzle window, if missing, you won't have any suction part #2104052.
