Removing handle of Hoover Widepath Floormate Spin-Scrub

I have to repackage this item for return due to a defect. However, once you've installed the handle, it seems impossible to remove. I've tried removing all the screws that splits the handle into two sections, but the part that locks it in place is down into the base. How can I get the handle off?

    I no longer have the problem since the faulty appliance has been replaced with a new one.



    Thanks!

SOURCE: hoover floormate plus model #H3010

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. >.<

Hello,

This is a notorious problem with the Hoover V2 SteamVac's. In fact the tank design by Hoover on your SteamVac was so bad, that Hoover redesigned this tank almost immediately due to the numerous problems customers were having.

For your particular problem, you really have two options. The first option is putting a bandaid over the problem, but will still fix it. We sell the entire gasket assembly on the bottom of the detergent tank as a replacement part. Unfortunately it's sold together with the seal, spring, and valve together as an assembly;
http://www.govacuum.com/hoover-steamvac-dual-v2-tank-valve-part-43513015.html

You also may wish to fix the problem completely by replacing the entire clean water solution tank. Hoover has redesigned this tank, and the new one I don't see near the amount of problems that I do on the older style tanks. The plastic is much more sturdy, and less prone to having the gasket and valve issues that the old tanks do. It's important to point out that the new tank does not come with the handle. You'll need to remove the handle from your old tank if you buy a new tank assembly complete. Rest assured that if you do purchase any part from GoVacuum, you'll have 60 days to return it for a full refund, just in case the repair doesn't work. Not only do we not deduct restocking fees or shipping charges, but we also include a return label with every order that you may use to return any item to us, and we'll even pay for your return shipping!

If you'd like us to do a repair photograph series on this repair of the valve and gasket assembly, please just request a repair clarification here on Fixya, and we'll be happy to do so.

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 F7410-900 Steam Vac Dual V scrub brushes not working


If the brushes will to spin when you try to turn them by hand remove them from the machine. If the brushes spin ok after removing them the the turbine assembly is seized up and will likely need replaced. If the brushes won't spin when they are removed from machine take the plastic cover off the brushes and clean out the gears.

The scrub brushes dont spin anymore


The brushes are turning by an air driven turbine. The turbine has a pivot bushing made of steel inside of it that gets rusty because of the water that is running through it. The turbine gear will have to be replaced. You can access the turbine gear by removing the hood. You can find a genuine hoover replacement part by following the link below. Just find the model number of your Steamvac.

My spin scrub brushes don't spin at all.


Check that the belt that spins the brushes is not broken, also that the
gear that drives the belt is turning.

Water keeps coming out of my hoover spin scrub


The bottom of the solution tank has a rubber stopper, if this tank is not installed just right that rubber can get caught, or damaged. Here is the manual for your machine.
