Hoover Shampoo Repair – Reservoir Assembly Transcript
All right, so today I’m going to go over how to replace what they call the Reservoir assembly on a Hoover shampooer. This is what the actual assembly looks like, which is nothing like a reservoir assembly. When I think of a reservoir assembly, I think of the water tank on the top. But what this is? It rests underneath where you put your clean water in. So, when you have this symptom that you put your water tank on and then water drains out the back of your shampooer, even when it’s not on, oftentimes it’s because this reservoir assembly has broken or the gasket has failed in it, and so water is draining down the back of the machine. Also check your clean water tank. Those have a tendency to break and the connections in the clean water tank too. Check that before you go ahead and replace this reservoir assembly. It’s actually really easy. I’m going to go ahead and remove the dirty water tank so that you can see what we’re doing here, but the reservoir assembly is right here, and it’s held in only 4 screws. One thing you can do to test the reservoir assembly is you can move these hoses preemptively and then put a cup underneath it or something and put it up and put your clean water tank up here and see if water just runs out these hoses, which it should. And you can plug the hoses and see if you’ve got water kind of dripping out elsewhere to kind of test and see if this reservoir assembly is your issue. Sometimes if you’re not spraying down here, your issue is the reservoir assembly as well. You won’t get any water through here. That’s clogged up in there or something like that. Your pumps are fine, but your reservoir or something may be the cause of the problem. Like I said, it’s all done. By three or four screws. And that’s it. It just pops right out. There’s a gasket inside there, which, as I said, is sometimes the failure point if you’re leaking. And you just pop your new reservoir assembly back in. Well, you took that one out and you’re good to go. And that’s it.
