Question about Hoover SteamVac F5914-900 SpinScrub Upright Vacuum

1 Answer

Severe water leak at the bottom when turned on.

When the holding tank is full and the machine is off, it will not leak. But as soon as I turn it on, water pours out of the bottom and the machine can’t **** it up fast enough.

It sounds like the tubing that is suppose to be hooked to two spray nozzles has come loose. You will have to take that dirt tank off, then turn the machine upside down and take the two screws out that hold the hood on from the bottom by the brushes, and then turn the machine back upright and take the screw from the top out. You should be able now to take the hood off and see all the tubing exposed. There is only one tube that goes to the spaying part in the front and see if it needs to be pushed back onto its' barbed fitting. Put that back on and put the hood back together. That should get you going.

We have a Hoover Steamvac F7452 that is leaking water from the bottom of the machine. If we place the water tank on the machine, water immediately starts flowing through to bottom of the machine. It'


When you put the tank on it connects with the unit and opens the valve on the bottom of the tank to allow the water to flow check for debris hair etc around the connection, it is possible the seal itself is worn or bad and needs replacement but I think the trigger only lets air in the tank so the water will flow out by gravity, I'm not positive on this but mine works that way.

How do I cycle the valves on the bottom with the eraser end of a pencil on my hoover dual vac shampooer


The center part of the valve (stem) pushes up (spring loaded) to release liquid. If it leaks it can (and should) be replaced. Also, check the black valve seal (conical shaped ring around the outside) for cracks or splits as this can contribute to leaks. The entire valve assembly (similar to photo) should be replaced to solve both issues.

  • Drain the tank after each use.
  • It either has no shut off valve or a broken one when not in use.
  • If its new return it and see if new one leaks or not.

My Hoover Carpet Cleaner is leaking out the bottom when I use the hand tool

Water drains out the bottom of cleaner as soon as tank is attached.


You don't say where the water is leaking from i.e. the back or the front. It likely is coming from the back. There is a connection to the "seat" that the tank sits in. There is a small hose that delivers the solution from the tank to the pump in the machine and I have seen them break off at the valve under the handle. If this is the case, the valve will have to be replaced.

Hoover Steamvac Widepath 6500 leaks


You didn't give your model number, but if this is a V2, you may have a crack in the tank, alot of times it is underneath the seal on the bottom. Or the plunger at the bottom of the tank is stuck open or missing.
