Hoover H3044 FloorMate SpinScrub Wide-Path Hard-Floor Cleaner Upright Wet Washer\015 Just bought the Hoover FloorMate SpinScrub Hard Floor Cleaner. I have both tile and concrete floors. It dispenses the liquid fine, it works as a vacuum cleaner just fine, but it will not suck up or dry the liquid on the floor at all. I have seen no liquid in the tank, only dust and debris. Yes, I have taken it apart, checked for lose fittings, cracks – anything. Brand new…no suckage! HELP…Scrubs like crazy and I use a towel under each foot to dry my floors and it is amazing how much mucky wet dirty water I am wiping up but I want the machine to do what it is supposed to.\015

The FloorMate® Deluxe Hard Floor Cleaner delivers a deep clean while gently and safely scrubbing sealed hardwood, vinyl, ceramic tile, laminate and marble floor surfaces. With the Dual Tank Technology and specialty brushes for wood, tile & grout you can have a deluxe clean anywhere you need it.
The most common cause of loss of suction is that the filters have become blocked. They may require cleaning or replacing. Another cause could be that the vacuum cleaner hose is blocked.
Instead of using a vacuum bag, a wet and dry vacuum cleaner uses two bucket system for separating dry and wet waste. The collection chamber, and motor unit, and are the main parts of a wet and dry vacuum cleaner. The motor of the vacuum cleaner is situated on top of the collection chamber.
Vacuum up Liquids
If you are ever tempted to run the vacuum cleaner over a puddle of water, remember that you run the risk of electrocution and serious damage to the machine.
Allow Floor Restore to dry one hour before walking on floors and eight hours before replacing rugs and furniture. To care for floors between applications, sweep and damp mop as needed.
Before mopping, sweep or vacuum the floor to remove grit, hair, and other large particles. Removing the everyday accumulation of dirt first makes the task of mopping less arduous. Be sure to blot dry any wet areas before sweeping or vacuuming; otherwise, you`ll dirty the floor further by spreading the grime.
Yes you can use your own concoction. I prefer dawn dish soap or a concentrated cleaner I use a lot rather than what comes with floormate. Instructions do come with the machine which say not to use oily cleansers in the machine.
For use on bare floors or sealed wood floors. Not for use on carpets.
Noun. floormate (plural floormates) A person with whom one shares a floor in a building.
Should the brush not rotate freely there may be debris tangled around the ends of the brush, carefully remove any obstructions or replace the brush with a new one. We recommend that you fit a new belt and brush once per year to keep your Reactive vacuum working efficiently.
The most common problems found in vacuum cleaners are low suction force, excessive noise, burning smell, vacuum not turn on, and overheating. These issues can be fixed by either cleaning the device or replacing some parts of the device. At times, it is best to seek a professional to fix the cleaner effectively.
A possible cause might be that the tank is not properly seated. To assure the tank is seated properly, pick it up and re-seat is so it sits snugly on the unit. If this doesn`t fix the problem, make sure the tank is assembled properly. To make sure they are both latched properly, pick the tank up by its handle.
WHY WON`T THE MACHINE PICK UP? The float in the dirty water tank may have been activated. Empty the dirty water tank and wait for the float to settle before re-starting the machine.
Check your hose for any cracks or holes that can cause loss of suction. You may also have a clog in the lower hose. Pull down and at an angle to disconnect. A clog in the main hose could also be the problem.

I have a hoover 3000 i have not used in awhile, and since I removed a large rug, I would like to use it again on my slate floor. HOWEVER, I cannot get it to pick up ANY water in the water recovery unit……it is dry, dry, dry. I have put in a new filter, cleaned the nozzle unit, the scrubber , and reconnected both the recovery unit and the water unit several times, but to no avail. I would like to get a graut attachment a well as replacement part, but since I can’t get the basic unit to work, I
Have you made sure the plastic filter cover with the round hole in it that covers the filter is in place ( part # 59177096 ). This piece seems to get lost, and without it there is no pick-up. The other common problem is that the wheel assembly has been damaged. Look at the bottom of the Floormate. You will see a black plastic wheel assembly. There are two pegs at the rear attaching it to the base. If this piece has a crack in it where it attaches to the base, there will be no pick-up.
I have a bissell quickwash 1950-e. I bought it Jan. 2006, and have only used it 8-10 times, I live in a very hard water area, so I though if I put some vinegar in with the cleaning solution it would get rid of any hard water deposits, unfortunatly the solution went lumpy in the tank and stoped spraying out water, I have opened it, hose clean, sprayer not blocked, x at bottom of water container when depresed water trickles out, component that opens the x when water container placed, also ran wate
Hard to say what is causing your problem, replacing the cap and insert on the water tank may help, part #2041111, even tho it may trickle out water when depressed, they can still be bad. The other thing would be the rod not relesing the water like it should. The big draw back to this model is Bissell has obsoleted all of its parts and most are no longer available. Might be wiser to buy new.
Will not dry or suck up water at all…BRAND NEW
Hey you guys who tried to answer, but really didn’t try…you didn’t answer the question. Obviously she has a clog at the intake. How do you solve this? I have the same problem. The intake is teeny. How do you take it apart to unclog it?
No Water My Bissell rug shampooer does not eject water or saop whan I pull the saop trigger on the handle. I checked both filters and they are clean. Then, I removed the container that sucks up the water and pulled the saop trigger, water barely came out of the tubes. I tried to clean the rug in our family room and the rug was not wet when I finished, no water coming out to clean the rug. HELP HELP HELP!!! I live in Colorado is there a Bissell repair shop near Denver, HELP!!! Thanks Dominick ema
Does water squirt out of the hose nozzle, if it does, then check the heater inside the handle asm. Make sure that where the tubes hook up to it are not clogged. If water doesn’t squirt, check for the seal at the bottom of the tank, it needs to be on the tank, not in the hole, this is for the soap bottle also, there is a seal on the bottom of it as well. The flow indictor cap is leaking air or maybe is too tight. If you had the top cover off, make sure that the tubes are routed right so as not to get pinched when the cover is put back on, the smart mix knob should be in the water setting and that the piston is on the bottom of the smart mix knob. Pump is bad. Try running a mix of vinegar and water to see if that unclogs the lines. Is the top cover and the base tight together in the back, sometimes the top breaks loose and it will raise up and it can’t spray, just re-fasten it down.

I have a Bissell Pro 2x carpet cleaner. The water heats properly as well as spraying the cleaning product. However, when I go to suction the water from the carpets, the 2 in 1 water tank bladder works properly but there is no dirty water outside the bladder. I have only used this carpet cleaner ~ 5 times and in the beginning I had to empty the suctioned water quite frequently as it was dirty and it could not not hold any more water. So I have done 1 room and all the dirt remains in the carpet
Check that the suction cone is not blocked. Check that the filter or hose to the bladder isn’t blocked as well.
I have the Bissell 2x proheat. There is no water being sucked up from the bladder and the cleaning solution is not being sucked in either in order to get to the carpet. On water rinse the carpet gets wet but I’m not seeing any water going through the clear front piece. I live in Harvest Alabama. Where can I take it to get fixed if it needs it?
My water squirts out fine, but the same head which squirts the water has quit sucking it back up! So now I have a ton of water in my carpet (where the dog threw-up) and no way to get it dry
Look to see if there are any obstructions in the suction path,If the motor is not working,check to see if power is getting to the motor from the switch,and go from there,check all connections,and the power supply(cord)If I can help,any more,please let me know more about the machine,cordless,or corded,two piece,or what,thank you,I will be on here a while.

This is a problem with these machines. There is an elbow in the unit that goes from the rotor brush assembly to the suction hose. Since you have a dog, there is a ton of dog hair that is blocking the elbow and reducing the suction. You can take it apart and clean it if you feel like you can.
