Check the seal where the tank sits on, also is the rod inside the handle moving up and down, or is it suck down pushing the reservior asm and allowing water to keep flowing. Another is there a hose off just under where the tank sits.

My Hoover steam vac dual v clean water and detergent tank leaks water before attached to the vac and during cleaning


This is a common problem with the earlier models which had a separate soap tank glued to the clean water tank. The plastic was too thin beneath the valve on the clean water side and would develop cracks. You most likely will need a new one piece tank. ( Part # 42272104)

Automatic "shut off" not turning off


Check the filter in the tank, if a dual V model you will have a screen, if not a dual V move the foam filter down about 1/4" to help.The lid on either model needs to be securely in place, as well as locking the left and right latches. On the Dual V model, check the hose door on the front.

We purchased a Hoover Steam/Vac (F5915-900) cleaner. We assumed it be a combination STEAM and Vacuum machine. Where is the Steam? I will await your reply. Thank You.

Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. I have a similar Hoover “SteamVac” and the vacuum does not create steam as you stated, but you do have to use the hottest water with cleaning solution and the Hoover will clean your carpet by spraying down the solution, the scrubbing brushes will loosen the dirt and the vacuum will pickup the excess water until the holding tank is full and then you have to empty it, and then start again. The word “Steam Vac” is something that the Hoover factory labeled but so far I have not seen anything that actual produces “Steam” while cleaning. Feel free to contact the Hoover factory with your complaint @ the information listed below. 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.

Problems with the Hoover Steam vac Heated carpet cleaner


This happens when the filter on the inside of the lid for the dirty water tank is pushed all of the way up. You need to leave a 1/4 in. gap from the top to the top of the filter.

Hoover Upright Steam vac


Is there a float switch in the tank? Could be when the float rose up to a level it got stuck, stopping your machine.
