Question about Hoover Floormate H3000 Upright Wet/Dry Vacuum
I found the inner round valve where the tube connects for the cleaning fluid was stuck shut. Although the "trigger" was working fine and the rod pushed againstthe valeve it wasn't working. Here's how I found this out. I tried to blow air through it and nothing would pass. I soaked it in hot water for a while and heard a "click." Tried blowing air through it and it passed through. It works like new now. It appears the "cleaning solution" causes a build up of "stickiness" that eventually causes the valve to stick in the closed position. Heating it in hot water caused it to become unstuck. I rinsed it well with hot soapy water before reassembling the machine.
