A cheap fix for this is go to your home improvement center and get some rubber tape and put a couple of rows around it until you can get another one. We used to use it for underground cable splices to keep water out, but if used properly it will keep water and suction in you will have to use electrical tape to keep it on.

solution number 2 works. however, you don't have to take it apart, the base plate has a steam hole in the center, just clean out with a paper clip. watch out for the residual steam, it actually helps clean out the mineral deposits

Hoover Steam Vac leaks like a sieve


I have the same problem with my hoover steam vac, different model but same problem. So I have had it for 2 years and never used the attachments because the thing leaked out the bottom when i tried. So today I tried to find a solution online and found nothing. So I started toying with the thing and found a solution for my model and I hope it will work for everyone else. I don't have a stair attachment so this goes for the upholstery cleaning attachment. I noticed right where my upholstery attachment connects to get soap, there is a second hole that is covered by a white rubber seal when the cover for the connection area is closed. I put a plastic bag, or anything to seal it, into this hole to make a tight seal. Tried the machine and worked like a champ. So Would be nice if hoover supplied a plug for that, but oh well worked for me hope it works for others with a hoover steam vac.

Clean water coming out of sides


Hoover SteamVac Ultra (model F5883-900) Threw it away, and had to buy a new machine. Sorry, but I found it more difficult to deal with the housing unit on the machine and just couldn't deal with it anymore. I hope you have better luck than I did with it. I couldn't find ANY help on ANY web sites for this model, just too old I guess.
