Question about Hoover Floormate H3000 Upright Wet/Dry Vacuum
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: 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).

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!

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.
