Question about Hoover F7431-900 SteamVac Vacuum
Just all of a sudden......
First it would not despense soap, so we took it apart to clean the rubber washers etc....
got it all back together and low and behold......
I cannot get the water to spray from the attachment it continues to come out of the main sprayer under the unit.

SOURCE: Permanant water flow
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.

the brushes are activated by suction, my berings and gears froze up, i took it apart, kinda hard to figure out, but not as bad as it looks. i lubed the berings and the gears, then i took an air compressor to the activation fins and let it spin, lubed again then hit it with air again, now works better then new.....GL

SOURCE: hoover turbine replacement
first you must remove the dirty water tank then the nozzle window on top of the machine. (this is the clear piece that the dirty water is sucked through.) then remove all 8 screws from the bottom along with the 1 screw on the main housing. after all this the top housing will be snapped into the base at two spots in the rear of the upper housing. when these are loose the housing should be out. you will find the turbine in the front along with 2 more screws and 2 hoses that also must come off. attach new part and reassemble.

Clogging of the pump that sprays water/cleaning solution is very common in Hoover and Bissell Steam Vacs. Try running a cycle of 1part vinegar or CLR to 3 parts warm, distilled water through the vacuum pumps. The heads get clogged with soap and the water pumps get clogged at the opening of the flash heater due to minerals in hard water. If you want to extend the life of your steam vac, don't use the heater unless you are using distilled water. This can get expensive, so I recommend not using the heater.
