Always use distilled, because tap water will plug the vents with hard water deposits after a period of use. You may need to run a 50/50 vinegar/water solution through first as you don't know what the previous owner was filling it with. Hope this helps!
ORECK DMS2000 No Steam First, tested tank and filter flow together using suction via plastic tubing. Worked freely Second, removed pump and disconnected hoses and terminals [watch location, three terminals on pump, two plugs]. Pump has a slug inside and I could blow water either way. Sucked white vinegar both ways until check action returned. Use distilled water in future!
Hi, I had the same problem ... I tried hot water for 30 minutes with no sucess ... then opened the unit and could see nothing real obvious in the solution hoses ... so took the main hose off the valve from the solution tank ... then plugged in the unit over a towel (be careful) ... and selected clean ... the valve opened and a bunch of fluid flushed through - so I knew the valve was ok. I then blew through the remaining hoses and did seem to get some flow .... and reassembeled the unit ... and filled the tank with vinegar solution ... the manual spray immediately cleared with a bunch of dark flakes ... the regular brush spray worked fine.
Hard to say without seeing it, is there a function type knob that you would switch from carpet to hose? Did the hose attachment lid close ok? Other then take, if this is new, it has a years warranty on it, just take it to a waranty shop for repair.
http://geeksquad.fixya.com/ThreadView.aspx?prdid=40471&thid=529140 Does not pick up water Posted by Dreams642 on Apr 20, 2008 I have had my Hoover Floormate for years. It has always worked great but the last few times I used it the amount of water left is tremendous and the container for dirty water was not full at all. I looked at it and the hose going up from the bottom thru the handle is broken how do I fix this. Hello, I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. Hoover Floormate H3000 Upright Wet/Dry Vacuum. You can down load the owner manual from the Hoover website www.hoover.com . It looks like the one of the holding or recovery tanks my not be in place, leaking, cracked or damaged, or the clear tube is leaking and needs replacing. I looked 2 the owner’s manual and it does not show the clear tube but the vacuum does come apart and just back track the clear tube and mark the screws when you disassemble the unit. Other wise , please call the factory or a local Hoover warranty station in your area. So if you need further assistance, please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or in the yellow pages, or contact the factory phone number or website to further assist you with your questions. http://www.hoover.com Telephone Contact our Customer Service Department at 1.330.499.9499 Monday through Friday 8 a.m. - 7 p.m. EST Thanks, Don the Vac Man Go Ahead.
