Having problems with your Hoover F5835900 Upright Steam Vacuum ?

I have a hoover 5835-900 and it is leaking solution everywhere


Answers :

You'll have to find out where it's leaking! Its not real hard. I will help you!

1. Fill the clean water tank. Check that the valve on this tank doesn't let water through when not on the machine. If it does this the tank is the problem.
2. Take off the 4-6 phillips screws holding the hood on to the machine. They will be on each corner underneath. Be Gentle! Do not break any of the plastic parts. Remove the hood.
3. Check where the clean water comes to a L valve. This valve is a very common problem. Place the water tank on the machine. DO NOT hold the handle down. Use paper towel to check for wet spots if you can't see where it is leaking. It should be fairly obvious.
4. If the water is coming from the "back" of the machine or the handle pry the cover off the inside of the handle revealing the hoses. The water release valves may be leaking. Be sure to check all hoses for cracks or breaks. Simply find the water.. and trace it back.

90% of the time it is the L valve which looks like this:

Carefully put the machine back together not forgetting anything and test!

Good Luck!!

I have a hoover F5915-900. Today when I got it our to use it I noticed that it was leaking. I did some troubleshooting, but not sure where to go from here.
