There is a panel on the side for belt access, open this and inspect your belt. Usually replacing the rubber belt will fix this problem, as the belt from the main motor is what drives the water pump unit. (The cogged belt in the front is what drives the brushroll, but if the rubber belt isn't functioning properly the brushes generally won't turn either.)
If the rubber belt seems ok and the brushes are turning either you have soap clogging the lines, or your pump has gone bad.

Flushing out the water lines can help clear a soap clog, but to effectively do it requires disassembly of the lower chassis. Both this procedure and pump replacements in these units are a nightmare because all of the rubber hoses running around in the machine have a tendency to get pinched closed on reassembly, so if you do disassemble your unit, be very careful to align all of the hoses so that they are not crimped upon reassembly.

Vax problems


Hi, it's Jeremy from Crucial Vacuum.

There are a few potential solutions you should try. First, check to make sure that the is nothing blocking the fluid on both ends of the liquid reservoir. Check to make sure there is nothing blocking the inside of your reservoir preventing the liquid from traveling out of the dispenser. If nothing is there, then check the other end of the reservoir on the outside of it where the liquid flows out to make sure nothing is blocking the flow. If each of these solutions do not work, the issue may be related to the trigger mechanism. The trigger may not actually be functioning and may need to be replaced. To determine this remove the reservoir and pour liquid straight through the dispenser and see if it comes out. If it does, the issue is most likely the trigger and you will simply need to swap it out for a new one.

Hoover steam vac model 5853-900 has 5 brushes/cleaning dispensers, am only getting 2 small trickles of fluid when I dispense fluid onto carpet


The brushes come off, they are clipped on as an assembly if you look at the bottom of the machine you can see where the cover for the vacuum slot that brings up the water clips on too. If you remove that you can see the clips that hold the brush unit better

Solution does not dispense


The trigger that releases the water is connected by a piece of plastic inside the handle. This plastic tends to bend over time, so it won't press the plunger high enough. I brought it to a vac repair place for the same reason and they added an extension which made all the difference. If I were to do it myself next time, I would look to see if a metal rod were possible to take the place of the plastic. Maybe not, but it would be worth a look.

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.

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!
