Question about Hoover Floormate H3000 Upright Wet/Dry Vacuum
Ok when replacing the Spring stem and rubber seal. Put the spring on the stem set it in the hole of the solution tank carefully hold it steady then pull the stem out slip the rubber seal onto the stem with the cupped side facing down toward inside of the tank press it over the rim on the stem so it stays in place then take the stem slip it into the solution tanks hole inside the spring and press the rubber seal into the inside of the tank.
I posted this so no one else goes threw the trouble I went through until I figured it out for my self I lost the parts and did not remember how the thing went back together and could find no help anywhere. Good Luck, Ray

SOURCE: I hav a floormate, it
I had the same problem. I brought it into a repair facility and they took care of it. It appears that the trigger mechanism is a plastic shaft that warps over time, so what they did was to "extend" the shaft so when I pull the trigger, it actually pushes the plunger up farther and allows more water out.
You can test this by taking out the top water tank and manually depressing the plunger on the bottom, does water come out on your hand? (do this over the sink! :-))
When you look at the seal on the unit itself, does the plunger go up and down a little when you pull the trigger? If there's a small amount of water in the little "cup", does it go down?

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.

i would check the lower hose assembly. it seems they wear out where the handle closes and opens put the handle down and look in to see if its broke. if so its only like 20 for a new one and a pain to get the old one out....

The brushes are not designed to scub the floor, they only lightly touch the floor. Make sure the front nozzle is put on correcdtly. Make sure your filter is dry and clean. I wet filter will give poor suction down to the nozzel. Down load the manuel at Hoover.com. The model is located on the back of the unit. H3000, or H3010

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.
