Leaking from bottom

My hoover stamvac leaks from the bottom of the unit. When I turn it back on water sprays out from the sides til whatever collected is gone. check the hoses they're all in good shape. It look like, the water collects where the Stair/
upholstery Cleaning Connection goes. connected it, to see if it still work and no water was coming out at the nozzle, just keep leaking from the bottom.

Thank You for this forum you have on line..

It is the steamvac pump that is bad. When you fill up the tank with solutions, even though it is not running the solution leaks out, and when you turn it on it sprays up and out the sides etc. Also the attachment doen't work either, no solutions comes out. Apparently the float sticks in this. My husband fixed it once, and now he can't, need a new part. Options are take it to a hoover service dealer, or I found 2 place online that sell the part. One is http://buyitnow64.stores.yahoo.net/hostrepufor5.html and the other is http://www.sweeper-city.com/ho5brstpu.html, this site if you look at different size pumps have a description of the problem: "If your Hoover Steam Vac is leaking or water will not come out of the attachment hose, then this is the part that you probably need !!!
This part is for F5914-900 model. Hope this helps

LIttle Green Bissell Water goes directly to collection tank, won't spray


Had a problem with mine not spraying, took ot apart and the heater for the solution was plugged with scaling, cleaned it up and works the very best now. As far as clean water going directly into the collection tank, sounds like the little hose may have a break or a leak in the vacuum hose.

Hoover spin scrub leaks when I turn it off


There are a lot of places that it could be leaking. The most common is a valve under the hood.you will have to put water in it and watch and inspect to trace where it is leaking.

Hoover floor mate h3000 will not suction water from floor when cleaning


Your collection canister may not be positioned tight enough in its place ment site. Tip machine back using foot pedal (as if you were going tio start using machine to clean) Insert collection canister (bottom container, then insert top canister with solution. The two canisters must be flush with machine side seams and must sit in position tightly. This is sometimes very tricky and may take a little elbow grease to make it click into place. Hope this helps

Why does my Hoover F5906 Leaks from the bottom?


Water (cleaning solution) is gravity fed to the floor cleaning brushes, but the attachment hose is fed from a small pump. If it only leaks when turned on and operating, check the pump for leaks at the pump itself or the connecting hoses.

Using my hoover steam vac tonight and too much water coming out. once it's turned on, water and shampoo continuously come out underneath until tanks are empty. looks to be leaking from left side bottom as...


make sure that you have filled everthing properly and the hoover steam is in a good condition. or check else is there any loose coonections in the bottom of the hoover, which makes the tank empty.
if the problem persists take it to service.

Little Green pro heat is leaking from bottom with very little suction. I just purchased it.


Try the following suggestions for the leaking issue:

- Check to see if the black or white "duck bill" gasket is misassembled or missing from the collection tank; ensure the gasket will open where the flat flaps meet and then reinstall it. The duck bill should be inserted into the curved side of the collection tank.
- Check to see if the solution tank/cap insert is leaking.
Note: When the solution tank is filled and turned right side up, the straw on the insert may fill with water/solution causing the tank to leak for a couple of seconds. This leaking should subside after the straw empties out.
- Check for proper placement of the o-ring on the cap insert. The o-ring should be between the bottle and the insert piece (part with the "straw").
Try the following for the suction issue.
- Remove the Collection tank and locate the circular motor duct on the base of the machine. Turn the machine on and feel for suction at this location. If you feel suction proceed as follows:
- Remove the gasket from the bottom of the Collection Tank. Ensure that this gasket is open (not sealed shut) at the top of the gasket where the flaps meet. If the end is not open, simply squeeze the end to open it. The “duck bill” shaped portion of this gasket should align with the rounded side of the Collection Tank.
- Check to make sure there are no cracks in the flexible vacuum hose or in the tool you are using.
- Make sure the collection tank latch is locked down securely.
- Check for suction at the end of the hose with the attachment off by suctioning water out of the sink or a cup. If there is low/poor suction, check the hose for clogs by raising the hose handle above the unit to allow the water to go into the collection tank.
The issues may be related as you can see some of the suggestions are similar.

Severe water leak at the bottom when turned on.


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.

Constantly sprays water

Hoover F7452-900 SteamVac Upright Vacuum
I noticed recently that our Hoover F7452 All Terrain constantly sprays water. As soon as I turn it on, whether or not it's set to Rinse or Auto-Rinse, its leaking water at the brushes. I probably wouldn't have noticed but I attached the hand-held adapter to clean our stairs and when I was done there was a HUGE pile of water under the vac. I took everything off and cleaned really good and looked again this morning and its still doing it. Any ideas?

Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure.
You probably have a bad trigger release valve or a loose connection @ the bottom of the SteamVac or the gasket under the solution tank in not sitting on there right and is leaking or you may have a small cut in the hose, but it so may guess that it is a bad trigger release valve or a bad gasket. Check with your local vac dealer to see if they have a new or a good used one to see if there is the problem or back track the problem from the bottom to the solution tank. So If you need further assistance, please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or in the yellow pages, or contact the factory phone number or website to further assist you with your questions.
