    I have the Hoover Steam Vac V2, Model # F7220-900. We need to purchase our 2nd new tank. The first one leaked out at the detergent area from the very first use. After a use or two the bottom of the rinse water tank plastic cracks extensively. A new tank cost us $50.00 the last time we got one and I will never buy another Hoover. This is my 4th Hoover Carpet Cleaner. I am switching brands as no other brand can be worse than this last one! Thanks for letting me vent!

If this is a Hoover, you can go to thehooverstore.com and order what you need. But you will need your model number. You will have to replace the tank.

I have a Hoover V Steam Vac model F7412. The tank for the clean water and cleaner fluid leaked out the bottom. I purchased a new tank but something in that area is still leaking. I know it is not the...


My clean solution tank is leaking from the bottom, too. It is not a hose or a valve. The clean solution tank is leaking in-between the clear plastic walls of the solution tank & the grey plastic bottom that are connected, together. I was thinking of caulking it all around the bottom where the clear plastic sides join the grey bottom plastic. I can't get into ordering a new one (spending $) unless Hoover will send me a new one for free. Purchased at Kohl's in Massapequa, NY in June 2008. There's a one year warrantee AND the directions say to EMPTY the solution tank after each use. Which I normally do because the tank runs dry.

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)

Hoover steam vac dual v carpet cleaner has stopped dispensing soap. Water is still flowing fine


You probably have a solenoid valve which has failed and will not open. This will require replacement of the valve. For temporary use you can mix a soap solution and put it in the rinse tank. The correct mix is 5 ounces of Hoover shampoo to a gallon of hot water.

F7210-900 Steam Vac. will not put out water when switch is in wash position but it will put out water when the rinse position


There are two electrical solenoids inside the hood assembly. One opens to dispense rinse water, and the other dispenses the soap and water solution. It is likely that the soap and water solenoid has failed and will require replacement. A "work around" fix for this is to mix the soap solution in the clear water tank ( 5 oz. of shampoo per gallon of water ), and shampoo that way until the solenoid can be replaced.

Water tank leaks


If the tank is leaking, when removed from the cleaner, it is not user serviceable.

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.

Cleaning solution tank dumping


in some cases the reservoir that the tank sits on would have to be replaced. best way to tell is, if you take the tank off and pour a little water in the valve where the rubber gramet is. if it holds the water its good, but if it goes down without you pressing the trigger then it will be the reservoir.

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.
