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

Cleaning solution When I press the release button the solution does not come out. What could my problem be?

Answers :

With mine, the problem was that the drain plug was not being pushed into the solution tank far enough to release the solution. Pushing down on the solution tank while squeezing the trigger in the handle released solution. Since ours is a first generation Floormate, it seems the plastic frame has flexed. I've glued a 1/8 inch piece of plastic to the drain of the solution tank. So far, its working.
Buy a new solution tank. the problem might\015\012be that your not rinsing the tank with clear water after use and the\015\012soap hardens on the release button of the tank.

Dyson DC23 Vacuum shut off and came on. Thought it was a problem at the electrical outlet as when moving plug it would come on again. Seen canister was full, emptied it and cyclone was quite plugged up so poked out the dirt. Had dog hairs in it as well as some ashes I had just vacuumed. Plugged unit in again and pressed switch. Will not come on. Tried another outlet. Is there a reset button somewhere or could the ashes have seized the motor. What can I try besides taking it to a repair sho

Vacuum either stops for no reason and can't be restarted without unplugging and waiting 1/2 hour to restart, or it simply will not turn on at all. The red light comes on when the "On" button is pressed. I took it back today for the 4th time in a month to where it was purchased. They called later and said it was running fine and they could not detect a problem. The last three times they have (1) replaced the roller brush, (2) "unclogged" the vacuum, and (3) "adjusted" the belt.

This sounds like it might be an overheating problem. \015\012\015\012Some vacuum motors are fitted with thermal cut out fuses or thermistors which cut off the flow of electricity to the motor when the temperature gets to high. It is possi ... Lindhaus Activa 30-38 Bagged Upright Vacuum

Electrical problem The light comes on but the motor will not come on when the on button is pressed. Is there a reset button? I thought it was because the bag was full but I just changed the bag and the motor still will not come on.

The light is separate from motor. No reset switch. Check for a fuse but i suspect it may be brushes are worn out and not making contact.Sometimes that starts as an intermittent.Hopefully one of the coils isn't open circuited. ... Sharp Twin Energy EC-12TWT4 Bagged Upright Vacuum

Bissell Powerease Lighweight Deep Cleaner. (Shampooer) After I fill the solution tank with the solution and water, I put it in it's slot, but all of the contents just come flowing out. I have only used this machine twice and it worked ok. You are supposed to press the trigger and the solution sprays out and then release the trigger when you want it to stop. But like I said, now I just put the tank on and all the contents come flowing out. I don't know what's wrong or how to stop it.

I have a Model F7431-900 and is a SteamVac V2. When I press the trigger for water or cleaning solution, the water just runs right through it even after releasing the trigger. What kind of problem do I have? Is it most likely a valve problem? I'm handy at fixing things and want to avoid the large repair bill if I take it in.

This sounds like a stuck solenoid. The Dual V models use solenoids to contol soap and water flow to the floor, along with a pump unit. If your unit is 12 months or less it is under warranty. I am not sure about the cost of the solenoid. ... Hoover SteamVac V2 6-Brush Widepath F7426-900 Vacuum

I have a Kenmore DuraPower Dual Cyclone Action 12 Amp that just randomly stopped right in the middle of vacuuming. I assumed the plug had come out of the wall so I went to check and this wasn't the issue. I tried multiple outlets and that wasn't the issue. I made sure nothing was stuck and there is nothing stuck. Nothing happens when I press the red "ON" button. What could this be? Thanks!

My shark steamer has stopped working after a year of having it (I have already replaced one, I'm a idiot!). My problem; however, is that it will steam, but the steam stops traveling through the actual "mop" part. I plugged it in, wait seconds and start pumping, but the steam builds up until it's hard to pump. I had to press the button really hard for the bottom to come off and it shot off like a rocket! I tried to stick something through the tubing, but it did nothing. What am I doing wrong? I
