Steamvac drips when tilt to pull back

The gray tray that clean water and soap are dispensed into (through) seems to hold water because every time I tint the handle to pull back the machine, it pours or drips water onto the floor. The water/soap holder is not leaking.

My one year old, lightly used machine was doing the same thing. The original tanks have a design flaw, develop hairline cracks. New tanks have been redesigned, but cost fifty dollars.

Will spray water, but not solution


Hi there! The clean water tank has two spring loaded valves that releases the contents. Fill the clean water tank with water on both sides. Hold the cleaner up and push the valves in on both water and solution side. Both valves should push in and contents should drip out. If not, the clean water tank will need replacing. To order a replacement tank follow the link. Search Results The type of solution you are using can also prevent the solution from dispensing, be sure you are only using the recommended cleaning solution for this cleaner. If the clean water tank valves seem to be working fine, there may be an issue with the pump assembly that delivers the solution. We would recommend taking the cleaner in to an authorized repair center for service. To locate the nearest service center to you follow this link > Service Center Locator Hope this helps!

No water/cleaning solution comes out on wash cycle


With this model, the soap dispensed is controlled by electric solenoids. these can be tricky to troubleshoot. I would take it to your nearest dealer. these solenoids fail, and cause a variety of symptoms.

How do you clean out the SteamVac...for example..the area where the water is sucked back through is very dirty...where it is visible from the outside


The easiest way is to rake the debris out with a piece of wire. More difficult, but better, is to remove the screws that hold the "wondow" on and clean. Some disassembly required! We see a lot of posts for cleaners that are stopped up. I know you didn't ask, but it's a really, really good idea to run a tankful of just plain hot water through the main dispenser and the attachment dispenser before you put the machine away. It will keep your dispensing lines free of soap that will plug it up, and cleans the soap out of the pickup side as well.

HOOVER STEAM CLEANER PROBLEM


The soap dispenser is supposed to be attched to the water tank. That grey piece, if it is round with 2 small ears on it is the metering plate, it controls the flow of water. It sits on the table that the tank sits on, insert it into the hole and turn to lock it in place.

Either you need a new tank, or there is a problem with the platform that the tank sits on. The tank has to sit correctly or it won't work.

Cleaning Solution leaks out around bottom


Most likely the opening under the seal has cracked or is starting to break away. You will have to replace the water bucket, the soap dispenser come with it, not separately.

This could be due to dried out soap in the works below the dispenser. Try cleaning the hole, putting plain water in the soap dispenser to clean it out further. You could just put some soap in with the water. Be sure to run lots of rinse water through afterward to clean out the heating unit.
