Why Is My Tineco iFloor 2 Wet-Dry Vacuum Not Spraying Water?

Let’s look at some common causes (along with fixes) as to why your Tineco vacuum isn’t spraying water. The causes are as follows:

1. Empty or Half-Filled Water Tank

The Official Support Team of Tineco has briefly explained this, which is why this is our main concern. If your Tineco iFloor 2’s water tank is not filled at least ⅓ with water, you will face this issue.

But don’t worry. This is an easy fix! Follow the steps given below to fill up your vacuum’s water tank safely:


  • Disengage the water tank from your vacuum cleaner.
  • Fill the tank with clean water. Don’t use third-party liquids used for cleaning purposes in the process!
  • Make sure to fill the tank with at least ⅓ water. Just to be safe, fill it till the ‘Max’ line.
  • Re-insert the water tank into your vacuum cleaner.
  • It’s that easy!

2. Dirty Filters

Believe me when I say this: you should religiously clean your Tineco iFloor 2’s filters to ensure efficiency. 

When your vacuum cleaner’s filters become blocked with dust or debris – you’ll face spraying issues. A dirty filter can cause your Tineco iFloor 2 to experience a low amount of suction, due to which it’ll face problems while spraying water.


To fix this issue, follow the steps given below:

  • Power off your vacuum cleaner and remove it from the power outlet.
  • Disengage the dustbin from your vacuum cleaner. To do so, click the button on the side of your Tineco. 
  • After removal, carefully remove those dirty filters from your vacuum’s dustbins. To do so, rotate the filters in a counterclockwise direction.
  • Gently pat your Tineco’s filters to remove loose dust from them. Afterward, rinse the filters with cold water. 
  • Let your vacuum filters dry for at least 2 days. It’s vital to ensure the filters are completely dry to avoid dust build-ups and prevent water from entering your device’s internal components.
  • Re-insert the filters into your vacuum cleaner’s dustbin. Rotate them in a clockwise direction until you hear a ‘click.’
  • Re-insert the dustbin into your Tineco iFloor 2. If you hear a ‘click’ sound while re-attaching the dustbin, you’ve correctly engaged it into your vacuum cleaner.

Note: Make sure to clean your Tineco iFloor 2 with cold water. Never use warm water to clean your vacuum cleaner’s filters unless advised!

3. Spray Pump

Sometimes, the little functionalities can cause massive disruptions, such as the one with your vacuum cleaner’s spray pump. 

If you’ve not used your vacuum in a long time – the spray pump can lose efficiency.

But then again, this issue’s resolvable!


To work your way around this problem, follow the steps mentioned below:

  • Power off your wet-dry vacuum.
  • Press and hold the iFloor 2’s Spot button for half a minute. By doing this, your vacuum spray pump will restore its functionality.
  • Power On your vacuum cleaner and press the Spot button to check whether the issue’s been resolved.

4. Possible Blockages in The Sprayer

We know you can relate to this because those tiny dust particles build their home anywhere. Especially in tiny holes such as shower heads and your vacuum’s sprayer!

Hence, it’ll make it difficult for the water to come out.


To clear out those stubborn dust particles from your vacuum’s sprayer head – follow the steps below:

  • Disengage the brush roll from your vacuum head.
  • Thoroughly check the inside chamber for possible blockages.
  • Grab a damp cloth and remove all the dust particles from the chamber.

Note: If the above solution doesn’t do you much good – use a fine needle to poke the small openings in your sprayer. This’ll help clear out the remaining dust.

5. Incorrect Cleaning Solution

When you use third-party cleaning solutions for your Tineco iFloor 2, they’ll likely stop the machine from spraying water.


The obvious solution to this problem is switching to authentic cleaning solutions compatible with your wet-dry vacuum.

We’ve compiled a list of some cleaning solutions that go with your machine (thank us later!):

  1. Tineco Hardwood Floor Cleaner

Re-insert the parts you took out. In most cases, you’ll hear a ‘click’ sound after proper attachment. 

7. Low Battery

This is a no-brainer, but minor attributes are often overlooked! So, if your vacuum cleaner’s running on low battery, it’ll fail to spray water efficiently. As for the solution, you already know the answer!
