Hard Floor vacuum, solution doesn't dispense

I just bought a FloorMate, Spin Scrub, hard floor Clearner. I assemble it and used it as a dry vacuum. I then put in the grout solution and water and tried to use the wash cycle/selection, but the tigger won't dispense any cleaning solution.
i double checked that I put the solution tank in the locked position.

You might check your owner manual to make sure that you switched it over for wet. If still no luck, and you said it was new, you have a years warranty, take it to a warranty repair shop.

How to fix clog on hoover floormate fh40010?

I was having the same issue with my NEW just out of box Hoover FH40010. First run on the floor was great then the water/cleaner stopped dispensing!!! 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!!!

Floormate does not disperse wet cleaning solution on the floor. brushes and vacuum pickup all work

First check to see that the wheel assembly is not broken. The assembly must move correctly to allow the fluid to be dispensed. Check for breakage at the rear of the wheel assembly where it attaches to the base. If this is not the problem, you may have a defective soap tank.

Floormate will not **** dirty water.

Check the hose coming out of the floor assembly. It tends to split, keeping it from picking up the water

Floor Mate

There is a black shaft with a black circular arm at a right angle to the shaft. The black plastic arm that sticks out of the front ( farthest away from the hinge) of the roller assembly plugs into the circular arm so that moving the scrub/vacuum slider causes the roller assembly to move up and down. I can do it with my finger, or use a flat blade screwdriver. I'm assuming you mean the black plastic thing with the little rollers on it.

Hoover floormate.

Can't do it. The machine vacuums in both scrub and pick-up. Sorry.

I used my Hoover FloorMate, SpinScrub Hard Floor Cleaner for the first time today. My intent was to clean the grout in my kitchen/family room floor. Since the water was dirty I know it cleaned the grout...

The Hoover model 800 has seperate brush assembly to do grout. The 500 model (yours) has only the one hight brushes so other means must be taken to do grout. I have a 500 and all tile floors and I'm bumbed too.

Hoover floormate problem

I found a solution posted by someone elsewhere on this website. Try doing a search for Hoover Floormate H3000... The posted solution is as follows:

Remove the liquid dispenser and set it aside. Locate the plastic "plunger" piece in the machine that is surrounded by a black rubber circle (the one on my machine is blue/grey in color...). Place a small drop of hot glue on top of this plastic "plunger" piece and let it dry. Replace the liquid dispenser and test the machine. This solved my problem and my machine dispenses liquid properly again!

I really appreciate the original poster who posted this simple solution.

Spin bruches don't touch 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. >.<
