Hoover Steam Vac Dual Tank Bottom Valve Spring Assembly Part Needed

There appears to be what I would call a valve/spring part(on the bottom of the combination water/solution tank) that has completely come out leaving a hole. I have this part but it will not reattach properly. I'm not sure if a seal is somehow missing that could have been there previously and is now missing? This results in water pouring out and rendering the use of this product inoperable. I know I can purchase an entire new tank; however, all I need is to know what I need to do with what I have and purchase only what I need rather than incur the cost of the entire tank unit. Thanking anyone in advance for their reply.

    I'm having the same problem - somehow the valve and spring stayed in the bottom of the tank before, but I don't know how, since I never really looked at it. Help!

It appears that there is a problem with the o-ring design. The o-ring should maintain a certain OD dimension and keep the spring assembly from pulling throught the hole. I am trying to find the service manual to locate the o-ring part number but have had little luck so far. I think that hoover should have maybe used a higher derometer material.

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.

I have a Hoover V2 Steam Vac widepath and the


Hello,

This is a notorious problem with the Hoover V2 SteamVac's. In fact the tank design by Hoover on your SteamVac was so bad, that Hoover redesigned this tank almost immediately due to the numerous problems customers were having.

For your particular problem, you really have two options. The first option is putting a bandaid over the problem, but will still fix it. We sell the entire gasket assembly on the bottom of the detergent tank as a replacement part. Unfortunately it's sold together with the seal, spring, and valve together as an assembly;

You also may wish to fix the problem completely by replacing the entire clean water solution tank. Hoover has redesigned this tank, and the new one I don't see near the amount of problems that I do on the older style tanks. The plastic is much more sturdy, and less prone to having the gasket and valve issues that the old tanks do. It's important to point out that the new tank does not come with the handle. You'll need to remove the handle from your old tank if you buy a new tank assembly complete. Rest assured that if you do purchase any part from GoVacuum, you'll have 60 days to return it for a full refund, just in case the repair doesn't work. Not only do we not deduct restocking fees or shipping charges, but we also include a return label with every order that you may use to return any item to us, and we'll even pay for your return shipping!

Here's the Hoover SteamVac V2 Clean Water Solution Tank, Part 12002549

If you'd like us to do a repair photograph series on this repair of the valve and gasket assembly, please just request a repair clarification here on Fixya, and we'll be happy to do so.

Hoover Steam Vac clean water tank valve leaks


a) make sure that there is not a place for a stair attachment. If
there is make sure air is not leaking through where the attachment goes
on because of damaged or misplaced fitting.

b) some steam vacs leave water behind them and **** up in front of
them. If you just walked forwad with the steam vac nothing would be
sucked into the tank.

c) try taking your finger off the trigger and using the steam vac. If
the tank still empties the trigger is stuck open.

d) try putting clean water in the dirty water tank only and using it on
a dry rug. If water goes somewhere from the dirty water tank you have
a leak.

e) take apart what you can and look at the parts. A good visual
inspection can solve many of these types of problem if you are careful
not to miss anything.

Water leaking out from bottom of 7901


That part can go bad, but I have found more often the a water line came loose. Take out the 6 screw and the flow indictor cap, remove the top, then inspect that area. If you find what the problem is, fix it then when you put the top back on, make sure the piston is on the bottom of the smart mix valve and that the knob is in the water only spot, then push the top back on. If you need to replace the auto-load receiver, the part # is 2140710 and you can order from a local repair shop.

Leaking out of hole


That is the valve asm. to release the water when it is depressed when you squeeze the trigger. Best to replace it, usually it comes with a new seal, hard insert, spring and valve. Check under neath the seal to make sure that the tank is ok, if a hole or crack, then replace the tank.

Rubber valve at bottom of blader tank


It is called the (#69)auto load asm, part # 2107041. It would be wise to replace it, It will come as one piece. Is the bladder ok? You can call Bissell and maybe buy the part thru them or they can tell you where to go to get it(800) 237-7691 ) .

Hoover model 6024-900 SteamVac


It maybe that a water line has come off, where does it appear to be running out? Bottom of the tank, or down below, Bottom of the tank may have a bad seal or has a crack under the the seal, on the platform where the tank sits on has 2 or 3 tubes that hook up to it, check to make wure they are on, or a line could have come loose at the bottom, there you would have to take the top cover off.
