Hoover Steamvac Widepath 6500 leaks

My steam cleaner starts leaking as soon as you put liquid in the clean water resevoir. I have taken the spring out to make sure it is working properly. There doesnt seem to be any problem with it but it still leaks. There is a prong thing on the machine that is supposed to be pushed into the spring to disperse the water. But the spring leaks on its own. I am having to put the water and cleaner in and run to the machine to put it in so it doesnt all spill out before I can put it on the machine. What could be causing this?

    I have a related problem, my shampoo reservoir (not the clean water reservoir) is leaking, but the assembly and valve mechanism seems to be the same for each.



    Anyway, it my case the valve fell out & I still have all the pieces (including a spring), but I can't manage to insert it back in (it just falls out). Does anyone have any hints for installing the thing?

    I thought maybe since you have actually INTENTIONALLY removed your spring (and presumably, re-installed it successfully?) you might be able to tell me how to insert the valve pieces back in?

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.

Hoover Dual V steam vac model F7425-900 won't dispense detergent


Check the spring loaded valve at the bottom of the detergent bottle.
Push it up with your finger or a pencil or some such thing and see
if fluid comes out. If it does, then the problem is the valve or tubing I
would suspect.

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.

This model has a resevoir with a diaphram valve. The location of this part in under the clean water tank it has a black round gasket.. Your problem could be a bad resevior or something mechanical with the trigger and rod that when you pull on the trigger, solution is released.

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.

Hoover Steam Vac - water leaks


May be an "o" ring missing. Being brand new, it is under warranty, you have a 1 year warranty, so you may want to take it for repair.

Leaking


My machine leaked badly BUT it was my own fault. There is a one-time only setup procedure where you squeeze the trigger and push the Clean-Surge button to lock a rod into place. Push the Clean-Surge button VERY HARD. There will be a loud SNAP which sounds like you broke something, but you didn't. I didn't push hard enough initially, all I got was a click which I thought was enough. My machine leaked so I called the help line. They told me to push the button harder, and sure enough, they were right. Until you get that snap, the Clean-Surge (which releases a little extra water-cleaner solution) is on all the time, hence the leaking

Don't have one yet, but your problem might have solved mine. Bought this cleaner used and now will go to vacuum store to buy spring. Water just pouring out like a faucet.

Try gently feeding a thin, springy wire down the tube to find is there is a blockage further up.
