Question about Hoover F7452-900 SteamVac Upright Vacuum

1 Answer

Constantly sprays water

I noticed recently that our Hoover F7452 All Terrain constantly sprays water. As soon as I turn it on, whether or not it's set to Rinse or Auto-Rinse, it's leaking water at the brushes. I probably wouldn't have noticed but I attached the hand-held adapter to clean our stairs and when I was done there was a HUGE pile of water under the vac. I took everything off and cleaned really good and looked again this morning and it's still doing it. Any ideas?

Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure.
You probably have a bad trigger release valve or a loose connection @ the bottom of the SteamVac or the gasket under the solution tank in not sitting on there right and is leaking or you may have a small cut in the hose, but it so may guess that it is a bad trigger release valve or a bad gasket. Check with your local vac dealer to see if they have a new or a good used one to see if there is the problem or back track the problem from the bottom to the solution tank. 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.

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!

How do you replace the brushes on a hoover f7452-900


You have two model numbers showing. I could not find anything on the F7425-900, but I did find an exploded view of the F7452-900 If you go to this URL:
http://www.ereplacementparts.com/hoover-f7452900-steamvac-all-terrain-parts-c-37315_37419_37439.html
you can see the exploded view. This itself does not provide directions on changing the brush, but it does indicate that by removing a few screws on the brush and squeezing some plastic tabs (looks like any way) that you can pull the brush off. If you have the new brush already, it may indicate some of the connection points.
Hope this helps a bit. Paul

My brushes on my hoover steamvac all terrain carpet and hard floor cleaner will not spin what do i do


I am not sure if you have the F7222 or F7452 all terran. There is a plastic piece on the back of the block brush (spin scrubbers) these wear out or break. You may need to replace the block brush. You can find the parts below follow the link. Please don't forget to give positive feedback.

Trigger on hose attachment not working so water sprays constantly


from your description, the trigger sounds like it is stuck in the release position. this sounds like a very simple repair. The component parts need to be looked at by a service shop

Water & soap spray constantly even when trigger is not depressed.


The connection for the hose to the cleaner is also a valve assembly. There is a white plastic spring- loaded sleeve that the hose must push in for water to flow into the hose. Part # is 43523004. This is a rather flimsy part, mine cracked and cleaner continously leaks out the backside of the valve housing until the tank is empty GRRRRRRR!

www3.sears.com there are diagrams and parts lists for similar model F7452-900.
