Floormate not suctioning water back up

My floormate is barely squirting water and does not draw the water back up.  I have checked it and looked at all the parts but as far as I can see all seems to working fine.  Help please!!

    I have the same problem, I end up having to finish with a mop to dry the floors.

    I have the same problem as well. And I'm surprised because I had the prior model for many years with no problem. I've had this one for only half a year and it no longer sucks up the dirty water. Why are there no solutions for this problem posted???

I love my floormate so muck that when my first one stopped vacuuming, I bought a new one - just figured it died. Then my new one worked well until one day, it suddenly stopped.

I discovered that the filter attachment holder (the clear plastic cover over the filter) has to click into place. I guess this might not be a problem for some, but I thought it just sat there over the filter. I finally pushed pretty hard (mostly in frustration at first) and it clicked into place. Now the suction works fine.

FWIW

I love my floor cleaner n I would be lost without it. I use it once if not twice a week. But...when I went 2 use it this week it will not squirt the water out when I pull the trigger so I used a squirt...


Check that the bung that closes off the water outlet hole is not stuck in the outlet. Remove the water container and check the underside where the outlet is while operating the opening mechanism.

HOOVER FLOORMATE SPINSCRUB WILL NOT PICK UP WATER


First make sure that you are getting suction from the bottom of the machine. Most of the time the squeegee is worn out which does not allow it to pick up the water like it use to. Turn over the machine and inspect the squeegee. If it looks worn or bent then it may be time to replace it. You may also consider replacing the filter. These are the two most common parts that wear out.

No Suction


The water channel hose could be torn. you can check by removing the lower tank and tilting it backwards, it is located in the lower section. could also be the filter cover. it is needed for full suction control.

Floormate stopped vacuming water


I'll answer last question first. Your floormate has a 1 year warranty. And should be taken in for repair.

Your issue of not picking up water, is related to suction and getting the dirty water to the recovery tank. check for obstruction in the nozzle, check the filter for debris clogging. If you have an issue with this dealer I would call customer support.

No water spraying, suction still working


I have a Bissell as well, and found that your issue sounds like there is a blockage in the hosing to the main cleaner part of your machine, The siphon action of the suction that your machine is obviously working in that you state that your accessories tubing is working. There is a split though in your unit. probably under the hood of the machine which splits the pressure between the accessories and the main unit. I highly suggest you look there to seek your blockage.
This unit works like a "straw" in a soda pop.. the unit makes a suction draw and that draw is directed to the main unit area and the accessory area, splitting from the main suction line..
Another suggestion though might be to be sure your accessory line is not "open" when you are trying to use your main unit.. you can test this by seeing it it squirts when you run your main unti as well.
Summary then is to check that there is no blockage after the "T" where the pressure seperates to the main squirter and the accessories.. This should be fairly obvious to see and a little cleaning should resolve this right up for you.
Hope that helps!

Hoover FloorMate won't pick water up


Check for the filter in place and it also requires a filter lid for proper suction or it will not work

Wet pickup has no suction. Dirty water stays on floor. I tipped it over and held a tissue in front of the wheels to see if the Floormate had any suction whatsoever; it does not. What now?


Okay, I too had the same problem with the water. I read that darn manual again and realized that I hadn't clicked the filter cover on tight. Wallla! The tank fits better and it works like a charm! Who knew?

HOOVER FLOOR MATE WILL NOT SUCTION WATER


There are no belts. If it makes the noise with the brush assembly removed the motor drive assembly is bad. It ia a complete assembly that can easily be replace by a repairman or ypouself if you are cleaver with tools. Good luck.

Hoover floormate


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. >.<
