Put the rubber seal on the bucket first, then put the spring on the valve stem, slip into the hard collar, then push it into the opening in the seal, it will snap into place.

How do I cycle the valves on the bottom with the eraser end of a pencil on my hoover dual vac shampooer


The center part of the valve (stem) pushes up (spring loaded) to release liquid. If it leaks it can (and should) be replaced. Also, check the black valve seal (conical shaped ring around the outside) for cracks or splits as this can contribute to leaks. The entire valve assembly (similar to photo) should be replaced to solve both issues.

I have a Hoover Steam Vac Dual Model # F7426-900. The nozzle and spring from the bottom of the soap dispenser popped out. Can this be fixed?


You will need a new valve assembly. ( part # 43513014, msrp $3.62 ) Place the rubber seal in first, then wet the valve and push it in with your thumb.

My floormate leaks water on the floor in puddles, even when I am not holding down the lever to wash.


Ok when replacing the Spring stem and rubber seal. Put the spring on the stem set it in the hole of the solution tank carefully hold it steady then pull the stem out slip the rubber seal onto the stem with the cupped side facing down toward inside of the tank press it over the rim on the stem so it stays in place then take the stem slip it into the solution tanks hole inside the spring and press the rubber seal into the inside of the tank.
I posted this so no one else goes threw the trouble I went through until I figured it out for my self I lost the parts and did not remember how the thing went back together and could find no help anywhere. Good Luck, Ray

Clarification to elextek: The right side


If the valve itself is leaking, it needs repaired/replaced. There should be a plastic stem in it, with a rubber seal washer, and a coil spring to close the valve stem when removed from the cleaner. If these parts are not there, or stuck, it will leak.

Won't spray


This could be caused by several things. First take the clean water tank off of the machine, and turn it upside down to inspect the bottom of the tank. There should be a gasket with a spring and valve stem, which you should be able to move the valve stem up into the tank when pushed upwards. If you notice that there is no gasket, or vale stem, you'll need to purchase a new clean solution tank.

If the valve stem and gasket are ok, then it is most likely going to the pump assembly that has gone bad. This is a little more difficult repair, you should probably look up your closest Hoover repair center, or independent vacuum repair store, and take it in to them to have it repaired.
