My steam vac leaks water quickly out of the tank all over the carpet even when the trigger isn't touched. I checked that all the hoses were properly seated. What do I do next?

How to unclog a bissell proheat turbo carpet cleaner


proheat 9300

Remove the water tank. You will see 2 red tabbed plastic spray tubes.(where the spray comes out if not clogged) Pinch the clips to remove from the machine. Then you will need to pinch the hose clips to remove the red tabs from the hose. Clean out those red spray nozzles. Next step: have a towel ready and fill the solution tank with water. Put the solution (not water) tank on to where the water tank would go. Place the machine selection knob to rinse/wet only. Now with towel under the hoses that you removed the red tabs. Turn on the machine and pull the trigger to activate the water. You should see water flow out of the hoses that had the red tabs on them. If not, release and pull again the trigger several times. If only 1 hose has water coming out of it then block the one that works and try the process above again to de clog the one that isn't working. Good luck.

You didn't give a model number so I'll tell you both methods. The F5xxx and F6xxx models have a cap at the top of the clean water tank that doubles as a measuring cup. The cap is about 3 inches in diameter. Fill the cap to the fill line with shampoo and dump it in the tank. Then fill the tank with hot (Not Boiling) water.
The F7xxx series has a 2 section tank. The large section is for hot (Not Boiling) water. The smaller section is for shampoo. Fill the smaller section with shampoo and the Steam Vac will mix the water and shampoo for you in the proper proportion.

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.

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.

Total leak issue


There maybe a tube that has come disconnected, depending where the water is leaking. If at the bottom, then take the top cover off and check for a loose tube. If it is leaking where the tank sits on, could be a tube under that platform, or there is a rod inside the handle, when you squeeze the trigger, it pushes a diaghram where the tank sits, If the rod is going up and down, then it is probably ok, but the diaghram on the reservior asm(#48). is staying open allowing water to go thru all of the time. You may have to replace that reservior asm.

Clarification Request By reddevil6, posted on May 01, 2008 What is your problem? Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure.
You may have a bad water pump, bad gasket, the water release valve could be broken, or the water tank is not sitting on the opening properly or the trigger assm is not closing properly. Feel free to check with you local vac dealer or a new or a good used part if you find out what is wrong. 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.

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.
