Question about Hoover F7431-900 SteamVac Vacuum

1 Answer

Permanant water flow

I have a Hoover F7431-900 with a problem. It continues to put out solution in forward and backward mode no matter what setting it is on. Even when it is on and locked in the upright position, the solution sprays out. It has great suction though. Can I fix this problem myself? If so, how?

    unpluged, switch off, refill the water tank with water and solution tank with the hoover solution ultra, attached the tank and it starts to pour out without doing nothing to it. How do i stop the water flow? Is it internal problem that i have to open it up and try to fix it? I need this to work!

To check the water lines you have to take the top housing off, you may have a water line that came loose. It it is leaking from just under the water tank, there may be a line unhooked there. Check the seal that the tank sits on, it may have to replaced, the other is the diaphram that the tank sits on isn't closing alowing the water to keep flowing.

Hoover Wind Tunnel U6485-900 will not push forward but suction works?


sounds like something has got caught in the wheels/roller. Turn unit off, flip it upside down so you can see the bottom of the device and see if you can move wheels forward and backward...if you see something caught on the wheels, try and unroll it in the opposite direction. If the roller is jammed up, you may need to take the 4 screws holding the roller plate and then untangle/clean the roller and re-assemble.

Hoover Savvy Brush only runs when the vacuum is moved backwards


That is brobably a bad wiring, that lose contact when you move the hoover forward. The wirings should be checked, here is some schematic:

Hoover U6485900 vacuum. The brushes never stop turning even when the cleaner is in the upright position. I have adjusted the cable that attaches to the actuator arm and nothing seems to change.


The idler arm assembly with the pulley puts tension on the V belt to turn the brushroll, if the idler arm isn't releasing the tension properly the brushroll will keep spinning even with the handle forward. Inspect this area to see if you can find what could be causing the belt to not release tension.

How can i test the power switch on my Hoover Windtunnel bag less upright that just stopped working suddenly? I have a multi tester but don't know how to use it.


With unit disconnected from all power connect the multi tester to the two terminals on switch after putting the tester in the resistance mode. Flick the switch and see if you get continuity and break continuity condition. If you do the switch is good and your issue is elsewhere.

Hoover brush and wash instruction manual


Hi there! To prepare for cleaning, put the solution and water in the top tank. While cleaning, all the dirty water gets sucked into the bottom tank. To clean squeeze trigger to release cleaning solution and slowly push carpet cleaner forward, this equals one wet stroke. Continue to squeeze trigger and slowly pull carpet cleaner back toward you (second wet stroke). Release trigger and slowly push carpet cleaner forward over area just sprayed with solution (dry stroke). Then slowly pull carpet cleaner back toward you without squeezing trigger (dry stroke). To avoid saturating the carpet don't do more than 4 wet strokes over one area. Always end with dry strokes. Here is a link to view the instruction manual if needed.

Wont move forward or backwards


Generally the belt is probably stretched and needs replacing but I have had several that required modifying the height adjustment assembly. Belt should be a bit of a fight to stretch and get the brush block back in properly to maintain resistance. The higher carpet causes the belt to slip and can even cause burn/wear from the motor shaft spinning in one spot. Sometimes people run them and burn through and break the belt. Generally you smell rubber burning if belt is slipping and burning. The height adjustment modification was a last resort and not easy! Not for the average person! Another post tells how to modify but better be handy!
