Re: Solution will not exit fresh water tank
The early models of this machine had a pretty ugly defect in the clean water tank. They had all kinds of problems with them and now have a completely different tank to replace the old style. It sounds like you have a defective tank. When the tank sits on the machine, there is a center pin in the tank support that pushes on the tank valve(s) and released the solution into the machine. One of the problems was that the hot water would cause the plastic of the tank to become too plyable and the preassure of the center pin would bend the plastic up and then the valves would not open. You may have to replace your tank. Contact the Hoover company and tell them that you are aware of the many problems they had with this machine and they may make compromises on a replacement tank. Good Luck.

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. http://hoover.com/file/604/
1.Remove bottom tank and look for pinched hose.
2.Use small screwdriver or toothpick on small holes which disperse solution-remove rotating brush first.
These were problems with my steamvac (f5861-900 model).
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.
Take the clean water tank off, and look at the underside very carefully. This tank is made of a very thin plastic, and chances are, your tank is cracked or broken. Sometimes the valves fail as well.
There is a new tank available, a single-piece tank instead of separate water and detergent reservoirs. The part number you want to look for is 42272104. The new tank does NOT come with a handle, so save your handle and use it on the new one.
Search for this new part number online and find the best price. I have seen them for around $40.

Hello, I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. Usually on the Hoover’s the have suction when you remove the recovery tank and from there you need to back track to see if there is a clog of some type or obstruction that is blocking the carpet cleaner from picking up the excess water, if you find that it is from the bottom, use and old wire coat hanger and create a hook on the end and that way you can pull out and remove any obstruction that might be in the way in order to get suction again, or the recovery tank might need a new gasket or it’s not sitting on the vacuum correctly. 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. http://www.hoover.comTelephone Contact our Customer Service Department at 1.330.499.9499 Monday through Friday 8 a.m. - 7 p.m. EST Don – The Vac Man Go Ahead.Use Us.
