Shop Vac lid will not securely latch. 1


Are you sure that the filter is pushed all the way to the bottom of the container? Just take it out and put it back and make sure the filter retainer is gently turned all the way.

Cannot remove lower tank for dirty water


Hi Karol,

You may have figured it out by now, but I'll go ahead and explain. You didn't give your model, so I'll go by the user manual for a F5810 model. If yours is different and you still can't get it off, reply back with your model number.

First you should remove the clean solution tank by pressing down on the tank handle and pulling forward. Set it aside. This is so there will be no leaks while you're emptying the dirty water.
Release the handle and lay it back on the floor. If you were doing the upholstery or stairs, remove the hose also. Turn the latches on the side of the recovery tank outward and lift the tank off. To empty the tank,you unlatch the lid at the back and remove it.

I hope this helps. If it does, I'd appreciate your vote. Thanks,

Handie Andie

I just purchased a floormate. I can't seem to get it to spray cleaning solution.


Turn the cleaner off and then on again to determine whether the cause of no suction resulted from the activation of the automatic shut-off. There are two reasons a tank will automatically shut off. The first is if the recovery tank is full. Located on the lower front panel of the unit, the recovery tank can be easily emptied and replaced into position. To remove from unit, press down on the release button and pull the tank downward and forward. Lift up on the tank latch lid and take out the tank lid. Empty the tank. Also check the tank lid screen for debris and remove any found. To replace the lid, align the tab that corresponds to the front hole of the tank. Snap the latches on the back of the tank. Insert the bottom of the tank back into the cleaner and push in and up until it locks in place.
Turn the unit on again and check the suctioning action. The second reason automatic shut-off could take place is if the handle was raised to an upright position while the motor was running. Should this occur, simply turn the unit off, wait a moment for the shut-off to reset, and turn it on again to continue cleaning.
  • 2 Make sure the filter and filter lid are properly positioned in the recovery tank lid. The cause of the problem could be that the filter or the filter lid were missing or were not in the proper position.
  • 3 Check that both recovery tank and/or solution tanks are locked in place and are positioned properly. The recovery tank is located on the lower front panel of the Floormate, and the solution tank is located in the front top panel of the unit. To remove from unit, press down on the release button and pull the tank downward and forward. Lift up on the tank latch lid and take out the tank lid. Empty the tank. Also check the tank lid screen for debris and remove any found. To replace the lid, align the tab that corresponds to the front hole of the tank. Snap the latches on the back of the tank. Insert the bottom of the tank back into the cleaner and push in and up until it locks in place.
  • 4 Observe whether filter is dirty. If the filter is dirty, clean the filter by turning the cleaner off and disconnecting it from the electrical unit. Take out the recovery tank and lid. Remove loose debris from the filter by wiping clean with a brush or tapping the filter over a garbage can. After this is completed, the filter may be rinsed clean for additional cleaning and then air dried before returning the filter to the unit.
  • 5 Check that the nozzle is in the proper position and locked. Locate the nozzle underneath the suctioning base of the unit. Make sure the latches are out and line up the middle section of the nozzle with the opening of the cleaner. Hold the nozzle in place while simultaneously sliding the latches inward to lock in

    No solution comes out


    - Please check the water level in the tank. It is imperative that the water level be at the full line when beginning your cleaning. Because this machine is gravity fed; if the water level drops too low, there will not be enough pressure to release the fluid.

    - Please make sure that the siphon tube for the autoload insert (on the water tank) is perfectly aligned with the front and back of the tank. If the tube is turned to the right side or the left side of the tank the unit will not spray.

    - Please check the vent hole on the tank. This hole is clearly marked and the water level must not be above this hole. The vent hole must also be clear.

    - Please check the spray bar on your machine. The spray bar is removable so you may take this off if desired and inspect the spray holes to ensure that they are clear.

    -Try removing and reinstalling the handle/screw assembly. The trigger mechanism is contained inside the handle. Occasionally it is possible for this part to become misaligned. To check for proper handle installation, try turning the handle from side to side and try to pull the metal part of the handle up or down....if properly installed neither of the previous actions should be possible.

    I am having a hard time taking apart the base that contains the belt.


    Firstly, there are no belts in the unit.

    To remove the hood, you must remove the screws from under the unit, two are hidden by the brush block. The brush block must be pulled down and the latch tabs released on each side to remove it. Then the screws are removed. There is also one screw at the rear of the nozzle area on top, seen when the tank is removed from the base. Lastly, there are mechanical latches on each side, in front of the rear wheels, that are plastic snap tabs. They can be flexed to unlatch.

    Frist time useing the product. It is not sucking the water.


    Make sure the front of the tank is latched. This is a common problem as one side needs to be latched before the other.

    Check that the side of the tank with 2 places to latch on is actually latched and then latch the other side.
