Question about Hoover H3030 FloorMate SpinScrub 500 Upright Wet/Dry Vacuum

Hoover 3010 FloorMate Plus not dispensing liquid

My FloorMate Plus Hard Floor Cleaner is not dispensing liquid. Sometimes it does, but mostly it doesn't. It worked fine till a couple weeks ago. I've checked & re-checked that the selectors are in the right position and the liquid dispenser is installed correctly. When the liquid dispenser is removed and I press up slightly on the drain valve at the bottom of the dispenser, liquid flows out freely so I know the suction vent valve on the top of the dispenser is working fine too. If there's a part that I should disassemble to inspect, clean, or fix, I don't mind doing that but don't want to tamper with what I don't need to!

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.

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!

Will not dry or suck up water at all...BRAND NEW


If it's brand new your best bet might be taking it to a Hoover service center. That'll have a year warranty on it so the fix would be free.

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 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.

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!
