Hoover Steam Vac clean water tank valve leaks

\015 My Hoover Steam Vac clean water tank valve leaks as soon as I fill the clean water tank up. I can hold the tank in the air over the sink and see a stream of water running out the valve. The rubber seal looks in great shape and still very pliable, but my guess is that it's leaking inside the tank where the valve must have a rubber seal I can't see from the outside. I've activated the valve by hand many times and it springs down into the shut position nicely. I opened the valve and shook the tank with warm water in it with the hope of dislodging anything that might be stuck in the valve. None of this has helped. Is there a way to take the valve out of the tank and clean or replace it? Thanks.\015

Answers :

A) make sure that there is not a place for a stair attachment. If
\015\012there is make sure air is not leaking through where the attachment goes
\015\012on because of damaged or misplaced fitting.
\015\012
\015\012b) some steam vacs leave water behind them and **** up in front of
\015\012them. If you just walked forwad with the steam vac nothing would be
\015\012sucked into the tank.
\015\012
\015\012c) try taking your finger off the trigger and using the steam vac. If
\015\012the tank still empties the trigger is stuck open.
\015\012
\015\012d) try putting clean water in the dirty water tank only and using it on
\015\012a dry rug. If water goes somewhere from the dirty water tank you have
\015\012a leak.
\015\012
\015\012e) take apart what you can and look at the parts. A good visual
\015\012inspection can solve many of these types of problem if you are careful
\015\012not to miss anything.
Honey! It's broke. You can manuever the little black valves out, but you will only find the hole in the clean water tank. I have the EXACT same problem. My advise to you is to take the valves, caps and handle off, sell them on EBAY and then buy you a whole new clean water tank.

I have the Hoover max Extract 77 and when I'm cleaning the carpet, the clean water tank leaks on the floor, even if I'm not squeezing the trigger.
