Hoover Floormate won't dispense clean solution

My Hoover Floormate won't dispense the clean solution. With the tank off, I pull the handle and the little thing inside the circular fitting goes up and down and is wet from the tank. However, it doesn't make it to the bottom. I have left it running with the handle pulled for 10 minutes to try to get solution through and it just doesn't work. It worked fine for quite some time and then one day solution wouldn't come out. Can you help me please...

    My Floormate has the same problem. When I depress the nozzle directly with the tank off, water comes out. But as soon as I put the tank back on and push the trigger, nothing comes out to clean the floor. It worked fine for two years.

    I have the same problem. Yes when I have the reservoir off and I press the valve fluid dispenses but when it is on the vacuum I cant tell. Although when it is on and I pull the dispense trigger I really dont see the spring on the valve move much if at all, but I do see some bubbles come up.
    Thanks for your help

    Same problem. Does not dispense the cleaning solution. When I remove the cleaning solution tank and pour water into the "hole" it goes through< however when I put the tank back on I get nothing. When I push in slightly on the bottom of the clean solution tank it pours out. Please help.

    I have the same issue as reported here - with the tank removed you can press on the diaphram but once assembled the solution won't dispense

The tank sits on what is called a reservior asm, that may have gone bad. Does the water flow out of the tank when you push in the valve at the bottom?

Hoover floormate fh40160 won't dispense solution


Hi there! Sometimes it is necessary to prime the trigger to get the solution flowing. Try these quick steps.

1. Recline the handle.
2. Pump the trigger vigorously about 60 times.
3. Power the cleaner on and squeeze the trigger for 60 seconds.

The cleaner should start to dispense the solution. Be sure you are using only the recommended cleaning solution to avoid internal damage. If your Floormate is still not dispensing there could be an issue with your pump. We would recommend taking the cleaner in to a Hoover authorized service center for repair. Follow the link to locate the nearest service center to you. Service Center Locator

Hope this helps!

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!!!

Hoover floormate h3000 w/spinbrush will not dispense the cleaning solution how can i fix


The hot glue trick will work; but what you probably need to do is gently push down on the black pin from inside the tank. This will lower the solution release mechanism and the solution will dispense. I found this solution on this website and it took 10 seconds and worked well.

Won't dispense cleaning solution


I had this same problem. There is a solution posted elsewhere on this website. Search for Hoover Floormate H3000.

The following solution is the one I tried: Remove the fluid dispensing tank and put a small dab of hot glue on the tip of the blue/greyish "plunger" piece that is located in the middle of the black rubber circle. Let the hot glue dry (this forms an extension to the plunger piece...) and replace the fluid tank.

I did this and my machine is working properly again! Whoever posted this solution was very helpful!

Hoover 3010 FloorMate Plus not dispensing liquid


With the tank off, can you see if the rod in the handle is hitting the spot where the tank sits on, if not then there is a problem in the handle. If it is, then the reservior asm may be bad, it is what the tank sits on.

The tank sits on what is called the reservior asm. it is actuated by the control rod inside the handle. With the tank off, watch and see if you can see that rod hitting the reservior asm when you squeeze the trigger. If it is moving up and down on it, then the resorvior asm may be bad. Also check the valve at the bottom of the tank, manually push it in and see if it releases water.

Hoover Floormate SpinScrub won't dispense cleaning liquid


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!

Hoover FloorMATE 3000 won't dispense cleaning solution.


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!
