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.

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.

Leaking Solution Tank/Seal Install - Hoover Steam Vac


Not sure this will help, but we have a Hoover Steamvac F5843 and our valve seal seemed to have shrunk so the tank was leaking. Bought a new seal and had the same problem. How to install? There weren't any instructions or pictures of the part(s) involved in the manual. Online there were a few pics but nothing helpful. After careful examination of the existing part and where it was supposed to be, I removed the original off the valve stem, placed the new one on it and carefully pressed the valve stem with the seal into place. It didn't look quite right and we were thinking "now what?". My wife and I got the idea at the same time...install the clean water tank (with the stem & seal in the bottom) back onto the steam cleaner. I took it back off to see what the stem & seal looked like afterwords and voila...the seal was perfectly inserted where it should be and the tank no longer leaks! The 'peg' that presses up on the valve stem pushed the seal perfectly in place.

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.

I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure.
You cannot replace the spring loaded value on the soap dispenser – it is a whole assembly and would need to replace the entire tank, you can buy them new or sometimes a local vacuum dealer may have a good used one on hand and that would work as well – check the yellow pages for a local vacuum dealer or Hoover dealer for replacement of the part.
