Having problems with your Hoover Floormate H3000 Upright Wet/Dry Vacuum ?
Solution does not dispense
\015 The cleaning solution does not dispense but in tiny drips...then not at all. Canister is secure and is full to the appropriate line.\015
Omg,I bought new one of these in 2001, just found my owners manual,couldn't find a solution then saw one of these responses said pit a small drop of hot glue on grey "post" (inside black round seal after removing clean liquid tank),another used a tire valve etc etc,whatever is used must fit over that little grey post and extend slightly higher,beads with the right size hole? I used the clear heavy plastic "bristle tip protector" from one of my sable nail brushes. Pushed it on them cut off (and saved ) excess .my Hoover now works like new and dispenses liquid!!! THaNKYOU online people!
The trigger that releases the water is connected by a piece of plastic inside the handle. This plastic tends to bend over time, so it won't press the plunger high enough. I brought it to a vac repair place for the same reason and they added an extension which made all the difference. If I were to do it myself next time, I would look to see if a metal rod were possible to take the place of the plastic. Maybe not, but it would be worth a look.

The soap dispenser on my 2X is not dispensing. I wrote with this initial problem and received a reply. We did everything recommended to find a clog. To begin with, we poked holes thru the little holes on the underside with a toothpick. Next we took the machine all apart as directed and cleaned out anything that had accumulated (such as pet hair). Eventually we emptied out the soap dispenser, filled it with a hot salt water solution and let it sit for 10 min. I ran three tanks of hot water

I posted my problem earlier today that I was having with my Bissell Little Green Machine not dispensing solution, but sucked up no problem. Someone said that the most common problem was a blockage. We put hot water in the reservoir for 15 minutes as advised and it still will not dispense. The fluid is now ''dribbling''so it is better. It is just not spraying. We are able to blow from the end and make bubbles in the reservoir which shows us it is not blocked. Any other suggestions?
