There is a little post in the back where you insert the top solution/water tank, if you put the tank in incorrectly, (i.e., shoved it in, instead of putting it in at an angle, bottom first) there is a chance you broke it or bent it backwards. My mother broke mine, i've got the post but don't know the part, without that post inserted into the tank the water will not come out.

Hoover floor mate h3000 will not suction water from floor when cleaning


Your collection canister may not be positioned tight enough in its place ment site. Tip machine back using foot pedal (as if you were going tio start using machine to clean) Insert collection canister (bottom container, then insert top canister with solution. The two canisters must be flush with machine side seams and must sit in position tightly. This is sometimes very tricky and may take a little elbow grease to make it click into place. Hope this helps

Hoover floor mate sucks up water while in the wash position


They do that. They pickup the water in all stages but lower the squeegee to different heights. At no point does the suction turn off.

Scooba problem


Does it put down clean water onto the floor? If so, rinse the four ports on the underside of the tank really thoroughly. You might have a clog; it's not difficult to dislodge it if you use enough warm water. Also make sure that the squeegees on the cleaning head cartridge (which holds the brush) are straight and in good condition.

If it doesn't put down water at all, try the tank rinse anyway, as it can help with that issue, too.

Why won't our Hoover Floor mate deliver water for cleaning?


After reading postings I created my own solution. I took a 1.5cm (approximate length) flush head finishing screw and screwed it into the button contact of the white memebrane and adjusted it to the necessary heigth to make the rod depress at the corrrect depth. My initial placement was too high and I had a continuos flow of water, but was able to fine tune. Also note the head of the screw I used was a similar circumference of the nob of the white membrane.

Water not being despenced from water tank


Don't try it's a huge pain. Put very hot water into the tank and hold the handle switch and bang it gently on the ground. You can also blow into the valve assy while holdind the handle switch open. Also, you can spray CRL onto the blue bar the brushes lock into. The little holes are where the solution comes out of. Good luck.

I cannot figure out how to use my cleaner floor mate


At the risk of giving a simplistic answer, let me go through the steps I go through every time I use mine:
1) Plug it into the wall
2) Take out the upper "hopper" and fill it up to the fill line with hot water
3) Put in the capful of cleaning solution (about 2 oz.)
4) Gently swish it back and forth, then put back into upper unit until it clicks into place
5) For best results, set the vacuum on Dry and vacuum the house first, then clean the lower "hopper"
6) Set the vacuum to Wet, put the scrub brushes on, depress the trigger and do overlapping strokes, a section at a time I depress the trigger on the push stroke, then release it for the pull stroke. I clean a section, then turn off the scrub brushes and go over it again without the scrub brush or touching the trigger (trying to pick up as much water as possible).

On average, when refilling the water/cleaner solution for the top hopper, empty and clean the lower hopper. When the floors are finished, completely clean that lower hopper or it will smell!

Hope this helps...

Just purchased Floor Mate. It will not dispense cleaning solution. It will pick up water on floor and vacuum. Brushes rotate, no other problem.


Either a problem with the valve at the bottom of the tank, or where it sits is called the reservior asm, a rod in the handle hits to release the water, so your problem could be in that area. But you have a years warranty on it, take it to a warranty repair shop for repair.

Hoover floor mate


When you place the clean water tank on the machine, there is a connection between the tank valve and the seal on the body of the unit. If you have been using the wrong solution, ie. lysol or pine sol, they contain elements that will cause the seals to absorb the solution and they will swell and the valve will not open to release the solution into the machine. If this is the case, you will have to replace the main seal on the machine and the small seal on the valve in the tank. I have seen this problem alot because it can be hard to find the proper solution that was designed for the machine.
Put cold water only in the tank and place it on the machine. As you are pushing it into place, look through the clear plastic of the tank and observe the valve. You should see it lift slightly and hear the "glug" of water flowing. You should also see bubbles rise up inside the tank. If this doesn' happen, then the seal and valve are probably compromised and will have to be replaced. Don't use any solutions or additives that contain petroleum distolates or solvent bases as these are the main culprits that will be absorbed and distort the seals.
