How do i disassemble my hoover f7220


Hi there! The tanks, brushes, nozzle and handle can be removed from the cleaner by following these quick steps below.

1. To remove the clean water tank simply grasp the handle and push down on handle to unlock it, then pull the tank out by the handle.
2. To remove the dirty water tank, slide the latches open located on the sides of the cleaner that hold the tank to the base of the cleaner. Grasp the handle and pull up and off.
3. For brush removal, with the handle in the upright position, tilt cleaner back until handle rests on floor. Grab brush assembly and pull firmly.
4. To remove the nozzle, with handle in upright position, tilt cleaner back until handle rests on floor. Pull tab at rear edge of nozzle and pull forward to remove nozzle.
5. For handle removal simply remove the handle screw and lift up on handle.

Disassembly beyond this point is not recommended. Hope this helps!

I let someone use the cleaner, and it came back dirty. How to I clean the front plastic where the water pulls the dirty water through. It is day and filthy. Help


There are three screws that hold the clear plastic cover in place. Turn the machine over and remove the two silver colored screws at the outer edges of the cover. To remove the third screw, remove the dirty water tank, and you will see a screw at the top center. After the screws are out it should be easy to pull the cover off for cleaning.

I just purchased a floormate. I can't seem to get it to spray cleaning solution.


Turn the cleaner off and then on again to determine whether the cause of no suction resulted from the activation of the automatic shut-off. There are two reasons a tank will automatically shut off. The first is if the recovery tank is full. Located on the lower front panel of the unit, the recovery tank can be easily emptied and replaced into position. To remove from unit, press down on the release button and pull the tank downward and forward. Lift up on the tank latch lid and take out the tank lid. Empty the tank. Also check the tank lid screen for debris and remove any found. To replace the lid, align the tab that corresponds to the front hole of the tank. Snap the latches on the back of the tank. Insert the bottom of the tank back into the cleaner and push in and up until it locks in place.
Turn the unit on again and check the suctioning action. The second reason automatic shut-off could take place is if the handle was raised to an upright position while the motor was running. Should this occur, simply turn the unit off, wait a moment for the shut-off to reset, and turn it on again to continue cleaning.
  • 2 Make sure the filter and filter lid are properly positioned in the recovery tank lid. The cause of the problem could be that the filter or the filter lid were missing or were not in the proper position.
  • 3 Check that both recovery tank and/or solution tanks are locked in place and are positioned properly. The recovery tank is located on the lower front panel of the Floormate, and the solution tank is located in the front top panel of the unit. To remove from unit, press down on the release button and pull the tank downward and forward. Lift up on the tank latch lid and take out the tank lid. Empty the tank. Also check the tank lid screen for debris and remove any found. To replace the lid, align the tab that corresponds to the front hole of the tank. Snap the latches on the back of the tank. Insert the bottom of the tank back into the cleaner and push in and up until it locks in place.
  • 4 Observe whether filter is dirty. If the filter is dirty, clean the filter by turning the cleaner off and disconnecting it from the electrical unit. Take out the recovery tank and lid. Remove loose debris from the filter by wiping clean with a brush or tapping the filter over a garbage can. After this is completed, the filter may be rinsed clean for additional cleaning and then air dried before returning the filter to the unit.
  • 5 Check that the nozzle is in the proper position and locked. Locate the nozzle underneath the suctioning base of the unit. Make sure the latches are out and line up the middle section of the nozzle with the opening of the cleaner. Hold the nozzle in place while simultaneously sliding the latches inward to lock in

    When I set it to manual, the sprayer won't spray. The sprayer light is on though


    Hello, I hope this helps you...1st, rinse out the little filter that sits in the hole where you place your "Cleaning Solution" tank. It's a small piece of felt. If this gets loaded with dirt or soap...the machine WILL NOT SPRAY. If this doesnt work and your machine is out of warranty...there is an easy fix for about $20 Unplug the unit. Remove the screw under the clean solution tank, remove that plate and remove the two screws under it...next remove the 4 screws under the "Dirty Water" tank. Lift off the top of the machine and you will see a little red pump under the "clean solution" tank area. Remove the 2 screws and clamps holding it in and replace the pump. (Just do a Google search for "SPOTBOT Pump" until you find one.) That will do it. After replacing the pump, fill the clean solution tank..check for leaks and let the unit sit overnight. The pump has to fill with solution to work...

    Regarding the brushes not turning:

    Your filter may need to be cleaned. It is located behind your brushes. With your tanks removed and the cleaner unplugged; tilt your cleaner back. The filter screen located behind your brushes can be removed by squeezing the sides of the filter and lifting and pulling toward you. Clean and replace.

    It would be difficult for me to advise you any further without seeing exactly what you have done.

    Hoover mach 3 cyclone vacuum shut off during useage. can't turn it on. cleaned it out and let it sit thinking overheated? this is 2 months old. help?


    I had same problem. Turned out to be the filter that sits above the waste cannister. Remove the waste cannister. There is a little orange lever that releases the filter. It was caked with dirt not allowing any air flow causing the motor to overheat.

    This foam filter gets dirty pretty fast.
