Floormate not picking up liquid at all

My floormate is making my floor completely streaky instead of clean. It only dispenses cleaner intermitantly and is currently not picking the liquid up at all. I have cleaned all the brushes and ejectable chambers where I saw an accumualtion of dirt. Might you have any suggestions?

I had the same problem: the hose/tube at the base is cracked and needs to be replaced. You only notice it when the cleaner is at a 45 degree angle. In the upright position the tube appears intact. It took me and my husband looking at the thing from all angles to figure it out!

Hoover floormate fh40160 won't dispense solution


Hi there! Sometimes it is necessary to prime the trigger to get the solution flowing. Try these quick steps.

1. Recline the handle.
2. Pump the trigger vigorously about 60 times.
3. Power the cleaner on and squeeze the trigger for 60 seconds.

The cleaner should start to dispense the solution. Be sure you are using only the recommended cleaning solution to avoid internal damage. If your Floormate is still not dispensing there could be an issue with your pump. We would recommend taking the cleaner in to a Hoover authorized service center for repair. Follow the link to locate the nearest service center to you. Service Center Locator

Hope this helps!

Can I use the Vacum cleaner for floors only without using the liquid. I do not want to wet the floors just sweep the dust away. I cannot find my manual.


first off your manual is right here....

http://www.hoover.com/pdfs/manuals/H3000.pdf

But more to answer your question, yes you can use it on the floor without the wet. You will want to turn your brush switch to the off position. Also, do not fill the water tank or press the spray lever for dry pick up only.
Hope this helps.

I am also having the same problem - it will not dispense the cleaning fluid - it is more work trying to get the thing to work than it is actually cleaning the floor.


I just took the dispenser out and splashed the mixed water and cleaning solution on the floor, it works well, but I'd rather use a good spray bottle on my next floor cause the splashed can cause spots, unless the floor is already wet. In addition this floor mate is slow if compared to a spray bottle and a sponge on your bottom foot, moping and sliding your foot over stains, and mopping up till clean and streak free. Furthermore, I used Murpys oil instead, its works good Im happy, and tired this job requires constant cleaning and rinsing of your mop bucket, with a one man team, alot of furniture and a piano its alot of work, but worth it at the end, later, going for starbucks for that pick me up.

Troubleshoot floormate spinscrub 800 floor cleaner


The brushes are not designed to scub the floor, they only lightly touch the floor. Make sure the front nozzle is put on correcdtly. Make sure your filter is dry and clean. I wet filter will give poor suction down to the nozzel. Down load the manuel at Hoover.com. The model is located on the back of the unit. H3000, or H3010

Hoover 3010 FloorMate Plus not dispensing liquid


With the tank off, can you see if the rod in the handle is hitting the spot where the tank sits on, if not then there is a problem in the handle. If it is, then the reservior asm may be bad, it is what the tank sits on.

Hoover floormate problem


I found a solution posted by someone elsewhere on this website. Try doing a search for Hoover Floormate H3000... The posted solution is as follows:

Remove the liquid dispenser and set it aside. Locate the plastic "plunger" piece in the machine that is surrounded by a black rubber circle (the one on my machine is blue/grey in color...). Place a small drop of hot glue on top of this plastic "plunger" piece and let it dry. Replace the liquid dispenser and test the machine. This solved my problem and my machine dispenses liquid properly again!

I really appreciate the original poster who posted this simple solution.

Hoover Floormate SpinScrub won't dispense cleaning liquid


I had the same problem and was preparing to take it back, the last thing I tried was to 'reseat' the handle -- I removed it then snapped it very firmly back into place. That did it, it's working beautifully now!

Hoover FloorMATE 3000 won't dispense cleaning solution.


I had the same problem with my Hoover Floormate H3000 and found the solution elsewhere on this website. Try doing a search for Hoover Floormate H3000. The posted solution is basically as follows:

Remove the liquid dispenser tank and set it aside. Look into the cavity of the machine where the tank attaches and find the plastic "plunger" piece (the one on my machine is a blue/grey color) that is surrounded by a black rubber circle. Put a small drop of hot glue on the tip of this plastic "plunger" piece and let it harden. Replace the liquid dispenser tank and try the machine again. My machine dispensed liquid properly after this fix-it.

I really appreciate the poster who provided this simple solution!
