Your problem is inside the vacuum hose where they have installed a small coiled hose that carries water to the smaller power head for upholstery. After taking this apart I found the inner smaller coiled hose was broken at 2 different places. A very poor design and poor quality material. The hose looked like it was rotted. This could be from old detergent left in the line or maybe the wrong detergent. A job to get it apart but if you remove the three screws that hold the side plate over the electrical you can block that hose off and the machine will work on floors only as the water to the power head is terminated.

How do i disassemble my hoover f7220


Hi there! The tanks, brushes, nozzle and handle can be removed from the cleaner by following these quick steps below.

1. To remove the clean water tank simply grasp the handle and push down on handle to unlock it, then pull the tank out by the handle.
2. To remove the dirty water tank, slide the latches open located on the sides of the cleaner that hold the tank to the base of the cleaner. Grasp the handle and pull up and off.
3. For brush removal, with the handle in the upright position, tilt cleaner back until handle rests on floor. Grab brush assembly and pull firmly.
4. To remove the nozzle, with handle in upright position, tilt cleaner back until handle rests on floor. Pull tab at rear edge of nozzle and pull forward to remove nozzle.
5. For handle removal simply remove the handle screw and lift up on handle.

Disassembly beyond this point is not recommended. Hope this helps!

I bought a used hoover steamvac duo and I do not know how to use it. I need instructions please?


Go to www.hoover.com then, towards bottom left of the screen, click on "Download Manuals". This opens a search window, in which you can enter your model number and then download a copy of the manual.

Need directions


This is an older model Steam Cleaner. The upper tank, fill with hot tap water up to the fill line, then add 5 ounces of carpet solution to the water using the upper cap to measure. Make sure the lower letank is secured and turn it on, tilt the handle back, pull trigger to release solution to floor going forward, then release when pulling back slowly to extract. I am not sure if the manuals are available online, however you may be able to locate a Hoover dealer which may have a digital copy. They can be found through the hoover.com

Hoover steamvac won't spray water on carpet.


Check the ank valve to make sure when you push it in that water is coming out. The reservior asm, (the tank bottom sits on this)is bad or the rod in the handle isn't pushing the reservior asm when you squeeze the trigger.
