Take the clean water tank off, and look at the underside very carefully. This tank is made of a very thin plastic, and chances are, your tank is cracked or broken. Sometimes the valves fail as well.

There is a new tank available, a single-piece tank instead of separate water and detergent reservoirs. The part number you want to look for is 42272104. The new tank does NOT come with a handle, so save your handle and use it on the new one.

Search for this new part number online and find the best price. I have seen them for around $40.

Good luck!

Vax carpet shampooer water tank leeking


If tank itself is leaking nothing you can do but replace it. Check it for cracks or leaks at sink. Make sure the round rubber seal it sets on is ok an not bent over or broken, also check the leaver to make sure it is not hing up an is working properly.

We have a Hoover Steamvac F7452 that is leaking water from the bottom of the machine. If we place the water tank on the machine, water immediately starts flowing through to bottom of the machine. It'


When you put the tank on it connects with the unit and opens the valve on the bottom of the tank to allow the water to flow check for debris hair etc around the connection, it is possible the seal itself is worn or bad and needs replacement but I think the trigger only lets air in the tank so the water will flow out by gravity, I'm not positive on this but mine works that way.

There are a number of possibilities. I have this appliance and I'm not a fan of it!

  1. Check the water filter isn't void, which is behind the main water tank at the front. It should have a sandy colour to it and if it is low or discoloured, then it requires to be replaced.
  2. Fill the water tank with water and the back tank (if fitted) with clear "white" vinegar and switch on. If there is only one tank fill half with water and vinegar. Then press the trigger on the handle. If nothing comes out, You will need to buy a new water limescale filter which can be purchased from Vax UK.

Vax carpet washer deluxe leaks from bottom of water tank, somewhere between coming out of the tank and going into the jet to squirt on the floor. pissing me off - any help would be great!


This is a common problem known by repairers. What happens is residue gets stuck in the seals. The next time you use the machine and press the trigger the seals stay open and water leaks continually. It was suggested that maybe after you finish using the machine you do a whole tank of plain water to rinse it out but I haven't had any luck with that. I am stuck with a machine that doesn't work.

VAX HOOVER PROBLEM?


The 121 should only have the main filter ring taken out before the reservoir tank is put in which easily just falls into the main dust tank area. Make sure though that the bin's square edge is at the front where it rests at the front of the Vax where the hose comes out. Then unhook the pump to lay it in the water tank and the motor should be able to jam ontop clipping both sides down to lock. Perhaps you are putting the reservoir bucket in the wrong way.

Bissell Pump Weak?


Often times I see the pumps clogged with soap when acting like you described. This can cause a pump to be weak. Pressure builds up whe you stop squirting water but tapers off quickly. A few times I've been able to get water flowing good but most times have to replace the pump.
