Hoover shampooers suck! Don't buy them period. You'll be throwing good money after bad. They have so many problems. My shampooers upholstery hose won't release a water spray, it stalls when it feels like it and yes mine leaks from the back also.
I have a Hoover Spin Scrub 50. Water is leaking from the water/solution tank. How do I replace the grommet on the outside where the water tank sits and get the stick, the spring, and the grommet back inside the water tank?
This is pretty handy to do. First make sure that your cleaner is unplugged, and there is no solution in the container and it dry

How to Assemble & Use Your Hoover SteamVac SpinScrub Carpet Washer
It could be a problem with the water base assembly or the filter in the machine. If the filter is not pushed all the way up this can cause the water to leak. Check the pump assembly and make sure the hose is not cracked or leaking. If it is you should order a new one.
My Hoover Pro Max 60 Model number FH50220 shampooer is leaking water. I fill it with clean water and detergent and it's empty in less than a minute. It's leaving water marks on my carpet because so much water leaks out.
This sounds like you have a gasket problem with the tank and the machine. You may need to change out the gasket because they do get old and no longer seal correctly when the tank is put on the machine.

Normally when these machines leak from the tank you have a bad ba valve seal. The part can be replaced and it is not such a hard job to do. Here is a step by step guide to teach you how to replace your valve seal yourself. www.hunker.com/

On one vacuum that I used to own, the belt would slide off. All one needed to do was open the bottom of it, and slide the belt back on.

If you turn the cleaner upside down there are little arrows pointing towards the screws you need to remove. They are Star or Philips head screws. Remove ALL of the screws with arrows.
I have a fairly new Hoover rug cleaning machine with two containers. One is for the solution and the other is where the dirty water flows back into. The directions are quite easy and state that both containers click into place. That said, I cleaned my rug in the living room and when I went to get rid of the dirty water, that's when I noticed there wasn't any. I don't know what to do. Does anyone have any suggestions? I can't help but wonder if my rug not only has the solution in it, but now the dirty water also? I would appreciate any help or suggestions you may have. Thank you in advance.

I have had this problem often with mine and every time I didn't have it clicked into place. Are you sure you have it on properly? It's really easy to NOT get it clicked into place. Mine is also a Hoover. If that doesn't solve you problem I'd call the manufacturer.
Assure that the lid to the recovery tank is on properly. If the lid is not seated properly, the tank is unable to form the vacuum needed to suction up the dirty water.
I've had my machine for a year or better. I went to use it one day and the roller wouldn't roll and made this loud noise. It wasn't cleaning my carpet. We took it apart to check the belt and the belt is OK. So what could be the problem? I paid too much to just let it go.
Help me please.

My Hoover Spinscrub steamVac cleaner just started leaking water from the bottom. Even when my lever was not off (not squirting water) the water was still leaking from the device. When I was drying the carpet with the vacuum, it was still squirting water (which made drying it useless).
Can you please let me know what I can do to fix this?
I have a Hoover Power Scrub SpinScrub 50. Clean water will not release from the tank because a very small plastic poker that releases the water broke off The poker is not part of the water tank, but is on the plastic stand just below it surrounded by a rubber ring a little larger than a quarter.
Please let me know how to replace it or the nearest repair shop in area code 32218.

My Hoover carpet cleaner will not turn on. I used it about 2 months ago and it ran fine; turned off and on fine. I went to turn it on today and nothing. I checked the outlet, cord, etc. Any ideas what it may be besides probably junk?
I took apart a Hoover 2 tank system carpet cleaner because it made an awful noise and smelled like smoke. Now I'm trying to put it back together and can't remember where the little hoses go under the hood to the pump.
