    Fresh water leaks, the tank holds water fine when off the machine.

    I expect it might be the hose or connection.

    will check and report back.

    same problem, but leaking rapidly. Discovered the tank is cracked where one of the one-way valves for clean water is seated.

Best I can say is to not buy a Hoover product again. This is the second time in just a few months that I have had this problem with this product.

The tank is probably cracked at the bottom and will have to be replaced, part #38777075, sells for around $60. If not the tank, then check to make sure the 2 or 3 tubes are attached to the plate that the tank sits on. Check the valve at the bottom of the tank to make sure it is there, if there push it to see if it moves up then down by itself, valve asm #43513015.

Hoover f7458-900 leaking when placing tank on


Hello! Test the clean water tank to see if it is leaking. Fill the clean water tank with water on both sides. Hold the tank up and observe if water leaks from the valves underneath the tank. If either of the valves are leaking the clean water tank will need to be replaced. To order a replacement tank follow this link > Search Results. If the tank is not leaking, but the cleaner leaks when the tank is placed on it, this may indicate an internal issue with your pump. We would recommend taking the cleaner to a Hoover authorized service center. Follow the link to locate the nearest service center to you. > Service Center Locator Hope this helps!

F7220-900 leaking but tanks don't leak


This sounds like a bad O ring on the metering plate, the plate that the solution tank rests on. Not the easiest fix but can be done in the right environment. I can give you some part numbers to start but you're better off having a shop that is familiar with these do the work.

Names and part numbers to get you started in finding a shop.
O ring #25156522
Metering Plate #38764031
and worst case scenario a cracked supply tank support assembly #41423018.
Explaining the problem to the service personnel and mentioning these parts will put them in the right place to fix your problem.

Water tank valve is leaking out of the bottom of the tank. The water leaks on the floor.


it could be a cheap fix. There should be a rubber o ring that's worn or ate away by chemicals.
I'm hoping the tank isn't cracked.
Remove o ring. Contact repair place. O ring shouldn't be more than 5.00.

Leaking


Could be that the despensing tank has melted and deformed at the connection point. This is what happened to me when I put in really hot tap water. The heat allowed the connection (where the water/soap outlet is) to deform when using it. Now when I fill the tank and place it in the machine the water just leaks out all over the place with no control.
If you look at the bottom of your tank, where the water comes out, you may be able to see that the plastic is mis-shaped or deformed slightly. It probably doesn't take much for the seal to be broken.

Total leak issue


There maybe a tube that has come disconnected, depending where the water is leaking. If at the bottom, then take the top cover off and check for a loose tube. If it is leaking where the tank sits on, could be a tube under that platform, or there is a rod inside the handle, when you squeeze the trigger, it pushes a diaghram where the tank sits, If the rod is going up and down, then it is probably ok, but the diaghram on the reservior asm(#48). is staying open allowing water to go thru all of the time. You may have to replace that reservior asm.

Clean Water Tank Leaks

The clean water tanks leaks. What's causing the problem?

Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. Hoover Floormate H3000 Upright Wet/Dry Vacuum. You can down load the owner manual from the Hoover website www.hoover.com . It looks like the one of the holding or recovery tanks my not be in place, leaking, cracked or damaged, or the clear tube is leaking and needs replacing. I looked 2 the owner’s manual and it does not show the clear tube but the vacuum does come apart and just back track the clear tube and mark the screws when you disassemble the unit. Other wise , please call the factory or a local Hoover warranty station in your area. So if you need further assistance, please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or in the yellow pages, or contact the factory phone number or website to further assist you with your questions.
