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

Hoover floor mate stopped picking up the water

\015 It's been used for two years but now doesn't suck up the water rendering it useless. I've taken it apart to look for clogs but nothing. Suggestions?\015

Answers :

The Tank recovery hose is very easy to remove. With the tank off, there are two screws holding the flat plastic piece that is attached to the hose. A few clips are on each side which just needs to be squeezed together to get loose. The hose unscrews from head and this plastic piece (the wire in the hose acts as threads). I have the same issue with a torn hose, but have not been able to find one locally in Dallas.
Usually when this happens, it has to do with a dirty or bad filter(#45, 40112050). Or the recovery tank isn't seating like it should. Maybe this picture will help.

The Hoover Steamvac Widepath will NOT pick up water. The dispenser with cleaner DOES have water. The TANK that would receive the dirty water is NOT full.

Still will not pick up the water. Any suggestions?

My Bissell Pro Heat Pet will spray water but not pick it up when cleaning the carpet. Is there anything I can do to fix it? The furniture attachment hose picks up water well.
