Question about Hoover SteamVac F5914-900 SpinScrub Upright Vacuum
As soon as I snap in the fresh water tank, I hear it running into the vac and it pours onto the carpet. I just put it together and am assuming I did something wrong, any ideas?
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.

It is the steamvac pump that is bad. When you fill up the tank with solutions, even though it is not running the solution leaks out, and when you turn it on it sprays up and out the sides etc. Also the attachment doen't work either, no solutions comes out. Apparently the float sticks in this. My husband fixed it once, and now he can't, need a new part. Options are take it to a hoover service dealer, or I found 2 place online that sell the part. One is http://buyitnow64.stores.yahoo.net/hostrepufor5.html and the other is http://www.sweeper-city.com/ho5brstpu.html, this site if you look at different size pumps have a description of the problem: "If your Hoover Steam Vac is leaking or water will not come out of the attachment hose, then this is the part that you probably need !!!
This part is for F5914-900 model. Hope this helps

I had the same problem. When I dissasembled the SteamVac i found the small rubber collar that surrounds the small point of plastic that fits into the bottom of the fill tank had come off. It ended up inside the vac upright handle. I put it back on the plastic point and the vac works fine. No leaks.
