Will not let the water down on to the floor.

Water will not dispense out of the tank. Everything else works like a charm but it refuses to let the water down on to the floor.

It seems to be a common problem with this series of floormate... some home quickfixes (a hassle, i kno) but put downward pressure while using the solution.... Check your warranty that came with it, and how long you purchased the floormate... Alot of vaccuums come with 30-90 warranties, I'd recommend having it checked out. That, or if u bought it recent enough,take it back... like i said, these models are unfortunately known to have this problem... Some people have ones that operate normally, but alot do not. >.<

Bissel Pro Heat carpet cleaner is not suctioning cleaning water off of the carpet back into the tank. How can I fix this?

There is a knob on the base that says floor and tools. Make sure that it is closing when you switch it to floor, Make sure that the hose works when you use it too. That will tell us what the problem is.

Why is there no water collection in the dirty water holder?

First make sure the unit is dispensing water, if so then check to make sure the lis on the lower tank is snapped on properly and that the front duct panel is installed. the front panel duct MUST be installed for floor operation to extract the solution from the floor.

The water is not coming out to clean the floor

Your unit uses water, correct? I have a Proheat 2X and it wouldn't dispense water. I tried the Water Rinse setting and found water came out and was suctioned properly, but on the Light Clean, Normal Clean, and Heavy Traffic settings, the unit failed to do anything. Problem may be with leaving the soap dispenser in-place, which might scum up the tubing.

SO, an alternative to throwing out my unit and buying somethign else was to put one capful of the Bissell soap in the water resevoir and keep the unit on Water Rinse. IT WORKS BEAUTIFULLY NOW. Don't know if this will help, but at least I didn't have to buy a new unit. Rinse everything after using and there's been no problem.

Water won't come out

Hi there SmartAlec from here. I think that the likely solution for the problem is that the water tank is slightly warped and so will not seal properly. Normally this is caused by using hot water in the tank. It should still be covered under warranty though just take it back to the dealer and get them to check it.

Attachment problem

make sure everything is filled and secured tightly, if this a new unit it should be something simple ok, also check where machine folds down that the solution hose is not being pinched its right behind the dirty water tank

The soap dispenser is supposed to be attched to the water tank. That grey piece, if it is round with 2 small ears on it is the metering plate, it controls the flow of water. It sits on the table that the tank sits on, insert it into the hole and turn to lock it in place.

Have a hoover steam cleaner F5837-900 model

First off, check the dirty water tank, check the round filter on the bottom of the lid to make sure there is a gap and pushed all of the way up, then make sure that the lid is locked onto the tank. Check the bottom of the tank, push in the plunge to make sure water comes out freely. There is a round seal where the water tank sits, make sure it is ok. There is a diapham that the tank sits on could be bad, or the tube running down the inside of the handle is crimped. Could have a bad pump. but they don't go bad very often.
