Total leak issue

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.

I stored my FH50220 in my storage unit over the winter and now it will not spray water


If your storage unit got below freezing it may have frozen and damaged something. It's hard to drain all of the water from pumps, tubes, valves, heaters etc. inside a carpet cleaning machine. If a machine must be stored where it may freeze one way to keep it from freezing up is to pour automobile windshield washing solution into the fresh water tank and run it through the machine until it comes out all of the Jets and cleaning attachments. Remove the fresh water tank and continue to run the solution through the machine to flush the windshield cleaner out of the machine. Be sure to use a cleaner with the proper anti-freeze rating and run fresh water through the machine before using it to clean carpets.

I did not get a manual with my vac. I am trying to soak up water from a water tank leak and water seems to go right trough the vac and water is coming out the blower hole. the tub is not full.


There is a special sock that you need to buy for it. You can run the paper filter if your in a pinch but after that one time, that's it, that filter is ruined.
The paper filter is for dry vacuuming, the foam filter is for wet vacuuming, You have to have one or the other in place.
There are two ways to snap the cover onto the basket, only one is the right way.
Look to see that the baffle is facing the hose inlet hole.

Severe water leak at the bottom when turned on.


It sounds like the tubing that is suppose to be hooked to two spray nozzles has come loose. You will have to take that dirt tank off, then turn the machine upside down and take the two screws out that hold the hood on from the bottom by the brushes, and then turn the machine back upright and take the screw from the top out. You should be able now to take the hood off and see all the tubing exposed. There is only one tube that goes to the spaying part in the front and see if it needs to be pushed back onto its' barbed fitting. Put that back on and put the hood back together. That should get you going.

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.

HOOVER STEAM CLEANER PROBLEM


The soap dispenser is supposed to be attched to the water tank. That grey piece, if it is round with 2 small ears on it is the metering plate, it controls the flow of water. It sits on the table that the tank sits on, insert it into the hole and turn to lock it in place.
