Your collection canister may not be positioned tight enough in its place ment site. Tip machine back using foot pedal (as if you were going tio start using machine to clean) Insert collection canister (bottom container, then insert top canister with solution. The two canisters must be flush with machine side seams and must sit in position tightly. This is sometimes very tricky and may take a little elbow grease to make it click into place. Hope this helps
The attachment hose also has to be plugged into the dirty water recovery tank.
The other end of the hose which has the square plug, must go in the spot on the recovery tank where the water comes up from the floor. To do this, Remove the lid of the recovery tank, slide out the little rectangle (usually same color as the recovery tank) which is located just above the clear water channel from the floor there, and insert the square piece for the attachment hose. It should only fit in one way.
Replace the lid to the tank and you should be ready to attack the ****.
I have had the same problem. I took the darn thing apart to see if the hose was loose. Come to find out that when you fold the handle there is an extension that sticks out. This extension pushes down on a plunger that allows the water to squirt out. My extension has broken off some how. I believe this to be a manufacturer defect.
After reading postings I created my own solution. I took a 1.5cm (approximate length) flush head finishing screw and screwed it into the button contact of the white memebrane and adjusted it to the necessary heigth to make the rod depress at the corrrect depth. My initial placement was too high and I had a continuos flow of water, but was able to fine tune. Also note the head of the screw I used was a similar circumference of the nob of the white membrane.

The problem is the water with cleaner is not coming down to the bristles at all. Help please. It is brand new. Any ideas??? Hello, I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. Hoover Floormate H3000 Upright Wet/Dry Vacuum. You can down load the owner manual from the Hoover website www.hoover.com . It looks like the one of the holding or recovery tanks my not be in place, leaking, cracked or damaged, or the clear tube is leaking and needs replacing. I looked 2 the owner’s manual and it does not show the clear tube but the vacuum does come apart and just back track the clear tube and mark the screws when you disassemble the unit. Other wise , please call the factory or a local Hoover warranty station in your area. So if you need further assistance, please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or in the yellow pages, or contact the factory phone number or website to further assist you with your questions. http://www.hoover.com Telephone Contact our Customer Service Department at 1.330.499.9499 Monday through Friday 8 a.m. - 7 p.m. EST Thanks, Don the Vac Man Go Ahead.
