Question about Hoover Floormate H3000 Upright Wet/Dry Vacuum

Open Question

Hoover FloorMate will not dispense cleaning solution

Have used tap water and it will not come out when I use the trigger release.  I have taken the machine apart and looked for any clogged lines, but could not find any.  Does anyone have suggestions?  I am using a spray bottle now but would like to use the machine.

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

I had the exact same problem and was on my way out to purchase a new one when I came across solution #1. I decided to check the hoses more thoroughly and discovered my problem. I released the handle to extend the hose and, using a flashlight, inspected the inside of the hose leading to the dump tank. Sure enough, there was a clog where the hose attaches to the nozzle that I never would have seen without a flashlight. Works good as new!

SOURCE: Not spraying liquid.

My model is H3010 so may be slightly different than the H3000. I used just a small "blob" of the hot glue stick on the tip top of the post (that sits in the centre of the round black rubber grommet over which the release valve of the liquid holder sits). The additional length when the glue hardened and cooled was only about 1/16".
Note: First I had tried the 1/4" glue stick solution but that must have been too much additional length on the post on my model, because the liquid kept leaking out when I replaced the liquid container over the post (I suspect the bottom of the container was being pushed up so much it didn't seal against the grommet).

SOURCE: 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!

SOURCE: 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!

SOURCE: No Suction

The water channel hose could be torn. you can check by removing the lower tank and tilting it backwards, it is located in the lower section. could also be the filter cover. it is needed for full suction control.

My floormate spin scrub solution dispenser button is difficult to push and when I do push it I can not see the plunger rod moving to raise the solution tank plug. How do I fix this?


Hi Melissa, this is one of our older designs that we recommend you take to a service center to get checked out. Find one here: http://hoover.com/locator/. We do listen very carefully to feedback like yours and implement that in our newer models. If you are looking for an upgrade, take a look at our FloorMate Deluxe: http://bit.ly/1sLrS5x. Hope this helps!

Hoover floormate will not dispense solution


this is the original Hoover Floormate, and may have a few different things that may be wrong. First check the fresh water tank is seated or installed properly. Second, it may be the pin on the actual unit itself that is not pushing in the plunger (located on the water tank) all the way to release the solution. Check for clogs above the brush block assembly the small holes may be plugged with dried sop solution.

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!

I found that when is assembled it out of the box I did not have the handle "plugged-in" properly!! I reattached it to where there is NO gap in the handle when pushed firmly into place and locked in the base. WATER SOLUTION NOW WORKS PERFECTLY!!!

Hoover floormate h3000 w/spinbrush will not dispense the cleaning solution how can i fix


The hot glue trick will work; but what you probably need to do is gently push down on the black pin from inside the tank. This will lower the solution release mechanism and the solution will dispense. I found this solution on this website and it took 10 seconds and worked well.

It won't dispense water to scrub. How do we fix it. Can you use a vinegar solutionto clean the nozzles


First check that the sloution is getting though the valve below the tank. istall and remove the tank with water in it. you will see water in the valve assembly. when pulling the trigger, water will go down. if it does, check the diffuser above the brush. the holes may be plugged, if so, use a small pointed object to clean out. if the water does not, then the valve should be replaced.

Cleaning solution will not dispense


After sitting for a period of time, some of the solution may have dried in the inner walls of the feed tube from the solution tank. What I would suggest is to empty the solution tank and then fill it with hot tap water, put it back on the Floormate, and hold the solution "feed lever" on until it starts dripping water. The hot water will hopefully disolve the dried solution and allow it to flow again.

I hope this helps! :)

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.
