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

Open Question

Water squirter is clogged and will not dispense the water-my friend gave this to me, but the line is clogged with probably old cleaner and it will not let the water flow to the ground--how do I unclog the lines of the dispenser so I can make it squirt again?

SOURCE: 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.

does the trigger feel like it is doing anything? if not you may find that your handle lever guard is broke and needs to be replaced. this is the plastic piece at the top of your handle and can be removed by taking out the screw. if this isnt it let me know.

SOURCE: not sucking up water

Hi.  I had the same problem.  After looking at the manual I went back and made sure the canister was making a proper seal.  That fixed the problem.  Make sure when you put the top back on the canister (that holds the dirty water), that you place the two front hinges in  place first and then snap the center clap on the back of the top.  This will give you a proper seal for suction. (My two front hinges weren't fitting correctly.)
Good luck!

Detergent doesn't dispense.


Water will clean carpets but not very well. For the best results don't put any cleanser in your machine. Soap can clogged up the lines in your machine. When you have soap dispensed or or in the water in your machine you are squirting it onto the carpet and sucking it back up at the same time...the soap and water isn't on the carpet long enough to clean well unless you keep going over the same area many times. To clean better it's really important to vacuum thoroughly going slowly in multiple directions to get as much dry, gritty soil and hair and dust out as possible, it's easy to get these soils out when the carpet is dry if your vacuum is working properly. Vacuum, vacuum, vacuum.
Get a spray bottle or sprayer and put hot tap water in it, add the cleaning solution to the hot water and spray enough on the carpets to get the face fibers damp...let the hot water solution sit on the carpets 5 or 10 minutes and then use your machine to clean and rinse the soap, water and loosened soils from the carpet fibers. Repeat if necessary. Your carpets will be cleaner because you allowed adequate dwell time for the soap and water to work on the sticky greasy soils attached to the carpet fibers and stay clean longer because the soap is rinsed out of the carpets. Your carpet cleaning machine will last longer too because the water lines, pumps, spray jets, heaters, etc can't get clogged with soap gunk if you don't put soap in it. The method I'm describing is how the best professional carpet cleaners clean carpets. Hiring a quality carpet cleaner cost more up front but the carpets may stay clean two or three times longer, saving a lot of money in the long run. If you clean your carpets using this dual process method you may do a better job with a small portable home or rented cleaner than hiring the average carpet cleaning professional who is trying to give you the lowest price.

My oreck steemer carpet cleaner xls465q wont dispense water or shampoo


You seem to have a clog in your pump. It is possible that left over soap and minerals from your water have brought your machine to a stop. I would go into the pump it self , and clean out any obstructions, then check all your feed lines for the same. I believe that going into your pump and cleaning inside will solve your problem. Take your time. GOOD LUCK FRIEND.

No what it means are the tubes that carry the solutions are plugged and most likely full of old detergent that hardened. You will need to clean all the plastic tubing out for the dispensers. When your done using the machine always run clean water only through the dispenser and tube to flush out the detergents.

Hi there,

Just a quick clarification please. Will the water not spray in both the attachment hose as well as the floor part? Or does it spray in one or the other. You suspect that it may have a clogged line, is the machine doing anything in particular that makes you think a clog?

Thanks,
CJ

Water and cleaner dispenses from handheld attachment only


He could be right but most of the time when it doesn't dispense water and cleaner it means that the pump belt is worn and needs to be replaced. I would try that first (only $4.99) before I spent $100. Here is the pump bet you need, it comes with instructions:

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!

Cleaner willnot dispense water and vaccum it again. Soap dispense fine. would like a owners manual.


sounds like you have a clog in the waterline, or a pinched hose.
Locate the water line hose, disconnect, and blow through with can of compressed air.
If nothing goes through...you have a blockage/pinch.

Either you have a pinched or clogged water line, or the rod in the handle is pushing down like it should. The drw back is Bissell has deemed this unit and its parts obsolete. So any parts are hard to find.
