Question about Hoover Vacuums

Open Question

Hoover floormate handle release pedal broken. Need diy repair information.

Handle release pedal broke. Need help to fix it. And it stopped sucking up the water but I think that might have been due to a full dirty water tank. But unless I can fix this handle release pedal, I can't get back to using it to know whether or not emptying the dirty water tank resolved my suction problem. If there is a video that demonstrates how to repair the broken pedal, that would be most helpful.

SOURCE: my hoover floormate won;t suck/ suction anything!

Things to check: Check again that the pipes aren't clogged. Check all the way through from where the muck goes in to where it's supposed to end up, paying particular attention to places where the pipe narrows, goes round a bend, or changes material. Check the machine doesn't just need emptying. Wet/dry machines usually have some sort of float operated stop valve to stop you flooding the motor when you've filled it with water. Make sure this isn't stuck shut. Check everything from the impellor right back to where the muck goes in is airtight. It doesn't take a huge hole to lose you a lot of suction. Pay particular attention to places that are meant to come apart routinely, and places where hoses join to hard fittings. If in doubt, run the machine and listen for sucking noises. If there's a filter between the fan and the air outlet (there usually is) make sure it is clean Assuming the motor is running, check it is turning the fan impeller. Hopefully, one or other of these will get you somewhere. A.

SOURCE: Hoover Floormate won't dispense clean solution

The tank sits on what is called a reservior asm, that may have gone bad. Does the water flow out of the tank when you push in the valve at the bottom?

SOURCE: Handle foot pedal release U6425-900

If you look under the vacuum where the latch is located, it is held in place by tabs on either side of the latch. The latch had a pin that holds it in place. You need to insert a small flat blade screwdriver to bend these latches back carefully to release the pins. Once the pins are freed, the latch can be pulled out the top. The replacement should be installed in the same orientation by pushing in from the top until the pins on the latch snap into place.

SOURCE: HOOVER SPINSCRUB WONT SUCK UP WATER...BLOWING AIR OUT

ITS THE DUCT PIECE ON THE FRONT OF THE DIRTY WATER TANK (DWT). ITS NOT LINED UP.
1. TAKE LID OFF OF DWT
2. SLIDE THE LITTLE SQUARE PIECE (5'X5'X1) (THE DUCT) ON THE FRONT OF THE DWT AS FAR UP AS POSSIBLE AND IF IT BENDS FORWARD FROM THE TOP, DO THAT TOO (SOME MODELS OPEN LIKE A DOOR TOP DOWN, OTHERS JUST SLIDE UP AND OUT COMPLETELY)
3. SLIDE THAT DUCT BACK DOWN AS FAR DOWN AND BACK AS IT WILL GO.
4. PUT THE LID BACK ON BY HINGING THE FRONT LATCHES ON AND THEN SNAPPING THE BACK SIDE DOWN.
5. CHECK TO SEE IF THAT DUCT PIECE ON THE FRONT IS LOOSE BY PUSHING ON IT AND SEEING IF IT MOVES UP AND DOWN.
IF IT IS, THE LID ISNT COMPLETELY ON, GO BACK TO STEP 4.
IF THE DUCT IS SNUG, CONGRATS YOU SHOULD HAVE JUST MADE YOUR STEAM VAC **** UP THE WATER AGAIN

How to change the release pedal on Hoover SteamVac F5914-900 SpinScrub


99 out of 100 times it's not the handle release pedal that's broken. it's the knob on the rear housing broken off. You will have to replace the rear housing. Take it to a local vac shop for repair.

I need to remove the handle from my Hoover Floormate. How to I do this?


These are not directions to specifically remove the handle, I looked for them and could not find them. At this URL you will see an exploded view of the unit. By looking at the exploded view you can see the screws that hold the handle in place.

How do you replace Hoover Handle Release Pedal on


The handle pedal is snapped in to the base, where it pivots.
The pedal needs to be pried away fron the base, exposing the pivot pin to release it for removal. On your model, you will likelly have to remove the lower handle from the base (where it pivots) to get room to release and replace the pedal.

Stand up lever is plastic, broke when stepped on to release handle, can it be repaired, replaced with a better one, plastic breaks too easily?


The pedal release can be replaced but the base will need to be checked for cracks as well. if the base is broken most common is the socket the pedal release snaps into. some of the plastic parts have been made with better materials

My son dropped the Hoover Floormate hard floor cleaner and a black piece with a spring came out. I dont know where it goes, and now the handle wont stay up.


From your description you have an issue with the pedal release in the base. this model is the original series, and I would not put too much money in the repair. not an easy cover to remove. check the base wheel assembly. the black pivot points break on these when dropped. If it is broke the part itself cost about $18. Cosider the overall performance and other repair items to determine worthwhile repair.

Hoover floormate


The tank sits on what is called the reservior asm. it is actuated by the control rod inside the handle. With the tank off, watch and see if you can see that rod hitting the reservior asm when you squeeze the trigger. If it is moving up and down on it, then the resorvior asm may be bad. Also check the valve at the bottom of the tank, manually push it in and see if it releases water.
