Hoover Steam Vac leaks

I've had this 6-brush unit for several years. Now it has started leading fluid. Sitting at rest with fluid in the tank, the stuff just runs out the bottom as though I were pressing the trigger.
Any suggestions re: fix for this appreciated. I live near Hoover repair shop, but would like to try fixing it myself first, if possible.

I have one that leaked and what I had found out is there is a littl rubber seal on the vac where you put the bucket with warm water ha been removed (by my 4 year old son) and it leaked due to the fact tha the water was being released but instead of going through the machin like it was supposed to it just ran onto the floor. It cost me $3.0 to replace that little part. hope this helps katiebu
