Question about Hoover F7425-900 SteamVac V2 Widepath Upright Vacuum

2 Answers

Tank for Hoover SteamVac continuously cracking

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!

    I also have had problems with this. My first one cracked after the first few uses and so I purchased another one- and the same thing happened. Now I need to do 2 steps....go over once with soapy water and then again with clean water to rinse. Very frustrating. Other than that, does a great job cleaning carpet! If Hoover could solve this issue I would highly recommend this model.

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.

Hoover Steam Vac V2 Deep Cleaner leaking clean water

Fill the tank and determine if the plastic is leaking, or if the valves are leaking. if the tank is cracked, it would need replaced. There is an improved design now available.

You may cycle the valves on the bottom with the eraser end of a pencil.

Hoover steamvac won't spray water on carpet.

Check the ank valve to make sure when you push it in that water is coming out. The reservior asm, (the tank bottom sits on this)is bad or the rod in the handle isn't pushing the reservior asm when you squeeze the trigger.
