Where is the water running out? If at the bottom of the tank, is the seal on where the tank sits on, Maybe the rod inside the handle is staying pushed down, the reservior asm is bad, or a water line is off.

I stored my FH50220 in my storage unit over the winter and now it will not spray water


If your storage unit got below freezing it may have frozen and damaged something. It's hard to drain all of the water from pumps, tubes, valves, heaters etc. inside a carpet cleaning machine. If a machine must be stored where it may freeze one way to keep it from freezing up is to pour automobile windshield washing solution into the fresh water tank and run it through the machine until it comes out all of the Jets and cleaning attachments. Remove the fresh water tank and continue to run the solution through the machine to flush the windshield cleaner out of the machine. Be sure to use a cleaner with the proper anti-freeze rating and run fresh water through the machine before using it to clean carpets.

How do I get the Shampoo solution tub unclogged so it mixes with the water to clean my carpets.


You can try adding hot water, but your best bet is to remove the tank and hose and flush them well with hot water to clean them out.

I just purchased a floormate. I can't seem to get it to spray cleaning solution.


Turn the cleaner off and then on again to determine whether the cause of no suction resulted from the activation of the automatic shut-off. There are two reasons a tank will automatically shut off. The first is if the recovery tank is full. Located on the lower front panel of the unit, the recovery tank can be easily emptied and replaced into position. To remove from unit, press down on the release button and pull the tank downward and forward. Lift up on the tank latch lid and take out the tank lid. Empty the tank. Also check the tank lid screen for debris and remove any found. To replace the lid, align the tab that corresponds to the front hole of the tank. Snap the latches on the back of the tank. Insert the bottom of the tank back into the cleaner and push in and up until it locks in place.
Turn the unit on again and check the suctioning action. The second reason automatic shut-off could take place is if the handle was raised to an upright position while the motor was running. Should this occur, simply turn the unit off, wait a moment for the shut-off to reset, and turn it on again to continue cleaning.
  • 2 Make sure the filter and filter lid are properly positioned in the recovery tank lid. The cause of the problem could be that the filter or the filter lid were missing or were not in the proper position.
  • 3 Check that both recovery tank and/or solution tanks are locked in place and are positioned properly. The recovery tank is located on the lower front panel of the Floormate, and the solution tank is located in the front top panel of the unit. To remove from unit, press down on the release button and pull the tank downward and forward. Lift up on the tank latch lid and take out the tank lid. Empty the tank. Also check the tank lid screen for debris and remove any found. To replace the lid, align the tab that corresponds to the front hole of the tank. Snap the latches on the back of the tank. Insert the bottom of the tank back into the cleaner and push in and up until it locks in place.
  • 4 Observe whether filter is dirty. If the filter is dirty, clean the filter by turning the cleaner off and disconnecting it from the electrical unit. Take out the recovery tank and lid. Remove loose debris from the filter by wiping clean with a brush or tapping the filter over a garbage can. After this is completed, the filter may be rinsed clean for additional cleaning and then air dried before returning the filter to the unit.
  • 5 Check that the nozzle is in the proper position and locked. Locate the nozzle underneath the suctioning base of the unit. Make sure the latches are out and line up the middle section of the nozzle with the opening of the cleaner. Hold the nozzle in place while simultaneously sliding the latches inward to lock in

    My iRobot Roomba runs for about ten minutes, then shuts off. I can keep pushing the clean button and it will run for another ten minutes and stop again. Nothing seems to get clean.


    Take the brush rolls out and you should see a copper disc. It is the dirt sensor. Clean it with Windex or some other cleaner. This works sometimes.

    My scooba 5810 won't run


    Fill the dirty water tank with hot water and giving the tank a good shake then pour the water out. Continue to do this until the water coming out of the dirty side of the tank is clean.

    buy a new solution tank. the problem might be that your not rinsing the tank with clear water after use and the soap hardens on the release button of the tank.

    Too much water coming out.


    When you press the trigger an angled piece on the end of the plastic rod attached to the trigger pushes valve button in that then releases fluid. On releasing the trigger, the valve button is supposed to be pushed back out by an internal spring. The button gets sticky with evaporated cleaning fluid and does not come back out, causing fluid to continuously run. Try taking the machine outside, fill the tank with very hot water, pull the trigger, and let the clean, hot water flow through the valve. Perhaps it will free up. If not, the valvle will have to be replace. Either way, once it is working, ALWAYS flush the entire system with hot, clean, clear water to remove any cleaning solution in the system or it will only clog again

    Stuck on check tank indicator


    If your Scooba's Green Check Tank light is coming on immediately on startup, please try the following steps:

    1. Remove and reseat Scooba's battery, ensuring that you hear it click into place.
    2. Remove and reseat the brush head
    3. Remove and reseat the vacuum port and filter. When replacing the filter, be sure to press firmly into the hole. There is a magnet on the filter that must connect with the magnet on the Scooba.
    4. Fill Scooba’s Clean Tank with approximately 1 cup of cold water, shake vigorously, and empty it to remove any debris in the tank.
    5. Empty the Dirty Tank, refill with water, and slosh it around to pick up any sediment. Empty the Dirty Tank again.
    6. Refill Scooba’s Clean Tank with water, adding a pinch or two of table salt. Run the Scooba. If the issue persists, please follow the steps below:

    With the tank removed, press the Power button and then the Clean button.

    If the robot tries to start a cleaning cycle, power off the robot and repeat, pressing the Power button first and then the Clean button. If the pump makes a “whirring” or squirting sound and the robot does not start a cleaning cycle (Check Tank indicator will light), this indicates that the pump is working. Replace the tank and try starting a new cleaning cycle with the tank on.

    If Scooba does begin a cleaning cycle the second time you press the Power and then the Clean button with the tank removed, the pump valve could be blocked with debris. Using a turkey baster, straw or sports bottle, force water through Scooba’s solution valve. Confirm that the baster, straw or sports bottle fits snugly over Scooba’s solution valve, push water through the system at least three times, and then try re-starting Scooba.

    Below is a link to a diagram of these steps for visual reference:
