Having problems with your Hoover Floormate H3000 Upright Wet/Dry Vacuum ?

It is not sending liquid from upper tank to floor, but it does **** up liquid off the floor if I pour it there?

I tested the flow of liquid through the tubing and\015\012distributor by placing a small amount of liquid in the opening under the\015\012solution tank and making sure it drained when the solution trigger was pulled. Since the liquid did drain all the way to the\015\012brushes, it was apparent that the solution was not leaving the tank. In the center of the opening that receives\015\012the solution under the tank (round opening with rubber seal) there is a plastic\015\012pin that is supposed to push into the valve on the solution tank and open it\015\012sufficiently for liquid to pass through the valve. Since the plastic pin has not changed in\015\012length, I assumed that the rubber plunger in the bottom of the solution tank\015\012may be the problem. This rubber piece\015\012does not seem to be replaceable. Since I\015\012am very cheap, I am unwilling to buy a $30.00 solution tank to get a $.25\015\012rubber plunger for this valve. My\015\012solution was to make the plastic pin a little bit longer. I did this by drilling a very tiny hole in\015\012the top of the pin and installing a very small screw which allows me to adjust\015\012the distance that the pin pushes up into the valve on the tank. I adjusted the screw almost all the way down\015\012and turned it up a little at a time until liquid once again flowed to the\015\012brushes. I have only used the machine\015\012once since this modification but it seems to dispense liquid very well now.
\015\012\015\012
\015\012\015\012A word of warning, if\015\012you break or damage the pin in the process of this modification, the control\015\012valve assembly will not work and it does not appear to be available as a\015\012replacement part. If you are not\015\012confident in your ability to make the modification, then a $30.00 solution tank\015\012is cheaper than a new machine.
