Question about Hoover F7425-900 SteamVac V2 Widepath Upright Vacuum
I have had my Hoover (model F7425-900) for 3 years. Of the 5 times that I have used it, I have ended up with a crack in the clean water tank 3 times. Is this a common problem with this model? If I choose not to keep it, is is possible to send it back to Hoover? Replacement on this part is $30+, I am frustrated and my wallet is exhausted!
It sounds like something is putting a lot of torque (twisting pressure) on the clean water tank that may be causing it to crack under usage. When you place the tank into the "upper" opening, then push it in until it "clicks", are you "forcing" it? If it doesn't seat easily you may be creating the torque and under usage it may break or crack. My clean water tank only cracked once. It went down a 15-step stairwell all by itself. I think they (Hoover) should make clean water tanks that can at least go down 20-steps. But ... that's just me.

I use shoe goo or similar product to glue the cracks together. I have fixed large holes this way and it works fine. It is best done when cracks first appear. If cracks are minor then super glue might also work but if it is major or there are holes then shoo goo does the trick and it is a permanent fix.
