Question about Hoover F7425-900 SteamVac V2 Widepath Upright Vacuum

1 Answer

Detergent Container spring and plug

The detergent container had a small spring and plug that has fallen out of the bottom. This appears to be the plug assembly that stops all the solution from draining out of the tank. I can't seem to get it back in. It doesn't want to stay in there. Is there a trick to getting it back in place?

    tank has always leaked. Store replaced 1st tank, and second tank began leaking after a few uses. At first we weren't sure where exactly the small leak was coming from, but now the detergent pours out before I can even get it attached to the machine. It is obviously the detergent container spring & plug that is causing the problem. I'm going to try ordering new spring/plugs, and if this doesn't work, I'm giving up on Hoover!

Won't spray out water to wash neither with the hand attachment, nor with the floor shampooer! This was a lemon since I got it. They made me send it to Madison Wi which was costly enough but then they kept it for months, then they sent it to one of their offspring stores and I had to drive an hour and back to pick it up! This is all at my expense. I used it 2-3 times and I have the same problems again! They said is was a pump, but how many pumps can a person go through being I use this machine like 1-2 times per year??? I need to use it in my motorhome and thought the hand attachment would work, but it won't spray either! HELP.

Hoover Dual V steam vac model F7425-900 won't dispense detergent


Check the spring loaded valve at the bottom of the detergent bottle.
Push it up with your finger or a pencil or some such thing and see
if fluid comes out. If it does, then the problem is the valve or tubing I
would suspect.

I have a steamvac v i was wondering if i fill the container of water to the top and does the water need to be cold or hot? I heard I could use tide liquid if so how much do i put in the detergent holder


Hi there SmartAlec from NelsonVacuums.com.au here. I have looked at literally hundreds of steamvacs over the years and you can use warm but not hot water in the tank. You cant use hot as it tends to slowly warp the plastic container and it stops sealing well. Also as far as i am aware you can NOT use any kind of detergent in a steam product. It will clog the steam jets very quickly and hey presto a broken steamer. Hope this helps.
Happy Vacuuming! :)

Under the detergent side, there is a metering plate,(located on the machine) which can be removed. ensure that this is installed. have you verified whether the machine will dispense detergent only without any water in the water tank?

Have a Hoover Steamvac Model #F7426-900 - Series AA12.0 On the bottom of the clean water tank and the detergent container, the gaskets leak and water constantly drips from the tank. How do you repair...


Inspect under the seals to see if the tank hasn't cracked, which is usually the problem. If it is a new seal that is needed, part #43513026. If a new tank is needed, part #42272104.

Tank Dispensing


Is the detergent tank cracked at the bottom, under the black seal? If so the whole tank asm. needs to be replaced. But if this is new, then it has a one years warranty on it and you can take in for warranty repair.

How do I replace the solution tank valve?


Mine has done the same thing twice. I don't think you can store any unused solution in the container because it eats away at the rubber o-ring causing failure. You need to pull out the rubber housing by hand or gently with a pair of pliers.

I have a similar model and occasionally have problems with water/detergent flow. I find it is generally due to an airlock in the piping caused by forgetting to turn the deregent water control off before removing the detergent container. Follow the manual instructions. Turn the knob to off. Fill both containers. locate them carefully. Make sure filters in the water tank and in the flow meter are clear. Start machine with handle laid flat and knob turned to maximum flow.
