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

Hoover FloorMATE 3000 won't dispense cleaning solution.

\015 The FloorMATE will not dispense cleaning solution. I have checked all of the seals and trigger/dispensing rod is making complete motion with plunger. All other functions of the machine are working properly.\015

Answers :

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!
I feel kind of dumb but on the outside chance that someone besides me was overlooking the obvious: I wasn't squeezing the trigger. Just like the carpet cleaner, you have to pull the trigger to dispense the fluid. I'm probably one in 10 million who wasn't paying attention, but I thought I'd share.

I used my Hoover FloorMate, SpinScrub Hard Floor Cleaner for the first time today. My intent was to clean the grout in my kitchen/family room floor.
