    What is the removable block, what does it look like. I think that may be my problem.

  • Fred Mat Feb 28, 2008

    What is the part number for the removable block on the recovery tank? I loaned out the unit & when it came back that part was missing? Also where can I buy that part
    Thanks Fred stagehandtv@yahoo.com

Is the lid to the dirty water tank on all of the way? Check the filter inside the dirty water tank to make sure it isn't pushed up all the way, it needs a 1/4 in. gap between the top and the top of the filter. If this has the type of tank that has a removalable block on the front of it, is it installed?

My hoover spin scrub has no suction wont pick up water why?


No suction means somewhere in the intake side of the system you have either a blockage or an air leak.

Why it won't pick up water?


Make sure the switch is on the setting you are using, I.E. spin scrub. If this isn't the problem you may have a bad turbine blade, if the scrubber brushes aren't turning that is your problem. $45, a screw driver and general mech. abillities will fix it. http://www.vacpartswarehouse.com

Can't get any water to come out of vacuum neither rinse or scrub. Acts like its stopped up. Model#F7220-900 Hoover spin scrub


Did you ever put water into the 2 holding tanks? Read the owner's manual! If you don't have one go to the Hoover website and put in your model number and download the pages! IT's all there. If you have been using it and it worked, yes, you have a clog or more than one...in the tip, in the tubes going to the tip, etc.

I would really like to wash the outer bag of my vacuum, but I have a problem. I can remove the outer bag from the vacuum, but the plastic 'frame' that is inside the outer bag is sewn to the bag. So what...


Hi,

you can wash the bag. However you cannot wash the bag in the wash machine. What you will want to do is look for the screw or depending on the model, untwist the cap down on the rod next to the machine. that entire pole section will come off of the unit below with the bag there.

I recommend if it is warm outside to use the garden hose to spray it and scrub inside the bag with a scrub brush and some dish soap.

I usually throw them into the laundry sink and let soak, scrubbing with soap and water.

To dry the bag, a hairdryer or hang to dry before putting the piece back onto the machine.

Good luck.

The SpinScrub scrubs the floor beautifully, but doesn't pick up the water/solution. I needed to use a mop to get up the liquid. Any suggestions?


First make sure that you are getting suction from the bottom of the machine. Most of the time the squeegee is worn out which does not allow it to pick up the water like it use to. Turn over the machine and inspect the squeegee. If it looks worn or bent then it may be time to replace it. You may also consider replacing the filter. These are the two most common parts that wear out.

here is a link the parts for your a h3030 floormate

Floormate will not **** dirty water.


Check the hose coming out of the floor assembly. It tends to split, keeping it from picking up the water

Dirty water comes out when I stop scrubbing. Floors remain wet.


Try one thing... the filter cover must be clicked into place. I thought it just sat on top, but it has to be pushed into place.

Can't do it. The machine vacuums in both scrub and pick-up. Sorry.

Hoover Model F8515 won' t **** up any water
posted by kevingao92 on Jun 24, 2008
It could be in reverse do you have any tips

Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. the Hoover Model # F8515 works on the pull back to pickup the water and on the push forward you can dispense extra water or solution and the brushes will still scrub but on the pull back it dispenses, scrubs and also picks up the water all in one sweep, if not then contact you local vacuum dealer in your area, check the owner’s manual for the trouble shooting guide and or call the Hoover Factory cust serv @ the information listed below.

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.

The problem could be that the Hoover H3000 Floor Mat could be clogged or something is blocking the suction port or you may have a pinched line of some type of which would cause it to not pickup, feel free to check with a local vacuum dealer in your area or in the yellow pages or the Hoover factory phone number is listed below:
