Won't dispense cleaning solution

Linkage from handle works well and operates plunger. tank has fluid and is not plugged (dispenses when I manually push into spring-loaded valve. Still am not getting fluid to the scrubber head; not sure when the supply tube delivers the fluid to and the Hoover online manual was no help whatsoever.

I had this same problem. There is a solution posted elsewhere on this website. Search for Hoover Floormate H3000.

The following solution is the one I tried: Remove the fluid dispensing tank and put a small dab of hot glue on the tip of the blue/greyish "plunger" piece that is located in the middle of the black rubber circle. Let the hot glue dry (this forms an extension to the plunger piece...) and replace the fluid tank.

I did this and my machine is working properly again! Whoever posted this solution was very helpful!

I took a pen cap from a Bic pen and cut the cap down to just a little taller than the plunger piece (located around the rubber circle). It fits over that plunger piece and inside that rubber circle. It seems to stay there when I had to remove the solution tank to refill it but if the cap comes off while removing the solution tank, then possibly hot glue the cap onto that plunger piece. The solution now flows out of the tank and onto the floor nicely when the trigger is pulled to dispense the solution onto the floor.

I was having the same issue with my NEW just out of box Hoover FH40010. First run on the floor was great then the water/cleaner stopped dispensing!!! I found that when is assembled it out of the box I did not have the handle "plugged-in" properly!! I reattached it to where there is NO gap in the handle when pushed firmly into place and locked in the base. WATER SOLUTION NOW WORKS PERFECTLY!!!

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.

No dispensing of water from container.


Check the bottom of the tank, there should be a gasket on the valve at the bottom of the tank. Must be on the tank and not sitting in the hole. Make sure the tank is sitting firmly and not off set even a little. Loosen the cap for the flow indictor while running, then tight when fluid starts leaking out, stop when the spinner starts spinning. Other then that you may have a clogged line somewhere.

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 won't dispense clean solution


The tank sits on what is called a reservior asm, that may have gone bad. Does the water flow out of the tank when you push in the valve at the bottom?

Detergent won't dispense


Check the valve at the bottom of the tank, does it push up then come back by itself (part #43513014)? If it is ok, then there may be a problem with the plate that the tank sits on or the plunger inside the handle isn't pushing to release the detergent.

Cleaner does not dispense


Check to make sure that the back end of the top housing is tight against the bottom, Sometimes they break loose. Make sure that the gasket at the bottom of the tank is on and is in place. Does the hand spray work? If it does then the heat inside the handle is plugged up. Pump belt broke or is slipping, could have a bad pump. The cap for the flow indictor is leaking air. There are alot off reasons why it may not be spraying.

Hoover FloorMATE 3000 won't dispense cleaning solution.


I had the same problem with my Hoover Floormate H3000 and found the solution elsewhere on this website. Try doing a search for Hoover Floormate H3000. The posted solution is basically as follows:

Remove the liquid dispenser tank and set it aside. Look into the cavity of the machine where the tank attaches and find the plastic "plunger" piece (the one on my machine is a blue/grey color) that is surrounded by a black rubber circle. Put a small drop of hot glue on the tip of this plastic "plunger" piece and let it harden. Replace the liquid dispenser tank and try the machine again. My machine dispensed liquid properly after this fix-it.

I really appreciate the poster who provided this simple solution!
