There isn't one. Just pull the handle straight up. When you reinstall it be sure to push it in firmly. Mine gives a click. Otherwise water runs out the side.

No suction of hoover carpet cleaner


Might be a bad blower/impellar - you must disassemble to check. But most likely the lid on the recovery tank is not installed correctly allowing air (suction) to leak. On most models you can remove the solution recovery tank, turn the unit on and feel for suction where the tank fits onto the base (look for the round, black rubber type seal in the front corner that mates to the round outlet on the underside of the recovery tank.) If there is good suction at this seal, then the problem is an air leak, almost always due to a loose or incorrectly fitted lid on the recovery tank. Also, if you have a detachable insert (for attachments) on the front of the recovery tank, check that the insert is installed properly. If this is reversed it will not provide suction.

Cannot remove lower tank for dirty water


Hi Karol,

You may have figured it out by now, but I'll go ahead and explain. You didn't give your model, so I'll go by the user manual for a F5810 model. If yours is different and you still can't get it off, reply back with your model number.

First you should remove the clean solution tank by pressing down on the tank handle and pulling forward. Set it aside. This is so there will be no leaks while you're emptying the dirty water.
Release the handle and lay it back on the floor. If you were doing the upholstery or stairs, remove the hose also. Turn the latches on the side of the recovery tank outward and lift the tank off. To empty the tank,you unlatch the lid at the back and remove it.

I hope this helps. If it does, I'd appreciate your vote. Thanks,

Handie Andie

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

    I have the hoover steam vac f5906900 and im just trying to use the detachment. I plugged in the water part but i cant get any suction. the water is spraying out that is all....help my dog **** on my bed...


    Hi, 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 ****. Good luck. Mark

    Instructions or manuel was not included.


    i downloaded the manual for your machine, but not sure how to access it for you,but i do know about the problem, the tank that sits down on the front of the steamer and it has 2 clips that you push in to lock the tank is where your dirty water is put in when you are cleaning your carpets. the tank above ,the one where you put your solution and water in is what is used to shampoo your carpet. on the handle is a trigger (black) button ,this is the button you push in to release your solution onto your carpet. release the button to extract the water from your carpet,moving your steamer in a back and forth motion. the trigger button is the only button on the machine and is only used to put the water /cleaner located in the upper tank on your carpet, releasing this button and moving your steamer back and forth over the shampooed part with extract your dirty water into the tank that sits below the solution tank. go on www.hoover.com and click on carpet cleaners ,scroll down to find yours and click on manual. and the owner manual will download and you can print it out for future reference, i hope this will solve your problem, sandy

    Facing the machine, the tank on the right is the solution tank, the tank on the left is the recovery tank. The solution tank is where you mix the solution and water to do your shampooing. The recovery tank is where the dirty water will vacuum to. Just a note, this model and its most of its parts are oblsolete.
