Hi, how do I check my hoover floormate deluxe spinscrub's filter and motor?


Hi Mike! To check the filter on the Floormate deluxe, remove the dirty water tank and pull up on tank lid to separate from the base. Check foam filter for debris, if filter has debris, rinse it with water. To prevent internal damage make sure you are using only the Hoover Floormate detergent. If the machine is still noisy and smells bad we recommend taking it in to a Hoover authorized service center. Follow the link to find the nearest service center to you. Hope this helps!

I have a Hoover Floormate, Spinscrub 500, I just wanted to know if tis model can also clean carpets.


SORRY , IT'S NOT DESIGNED OR HAS THE ABILITY TO DO ANYTHING OTHER THEN MINOR SPOT CLEANING. TO DO A CARPET , YOU'LL NEED A FULL SIZED UNIT. THE PROBLEM IS THAT NO MATTER WHAT BRAND YOU BUY YOU'LL HAVE PROBLEMS IN LESS THEN 3 MONTHS AS THEY ARE ALL MADE IN CHINA NOW AND THE QUALITY IS TERRIBLE. GOOD LUCK AND WHATEVER YOU DO , DON'T BUY IT FROM KOHL'S , THEY HAVE THE WORST.

While cleaning with the floormate the dirty fluid dropt out and it willnot pick up.


sounds to me that something is blocking the suction from the impeller. You might just have to lay down some newspapers and go to town cleaning the unit. Remember it is a machine, and it has to be maintained.

I have a hoover floormate h-2800 that does not suck up the water


this is a great vacuum. however it does require an extensive cleaning every now and then. diaassembly is required for this. there is a hose that goes from pick up to the tank. make sure this is clear. also your filter should be clean and dry.

Motor runs, but noisey, smells hot, brushes don't turn


First you need to check why the brushes are not turning, this could be due to a lack of suction, which means the smell of heat and excess noise is due to a faulty motor, this can also be tested simply by testing the units suction power.
A faulty motor is the most comon problem when it comes to smells of heat or 'ozone' as well as excessive noise. Good Luck.

Noise


Hi Linda,
Sounds like clutch problems, try to move the lever for carpet/floor back and forth a few times maybe it will free up. If it still makes the grinding noise, the clutch assembly will have to be replaced. Let me know, i can even walk you through the repair if needed.

Floormate stopped sucking up water as well as it used to


Don't know how much dirt has accumulated in the recovery system, but mine was amazing for no more than we use it. The front of the head detaches and you can clearly see where the solution is being vacuumed into. A thin rectangular channel then carries the fluid to a corrugated hose in the back of the head. This channel accumulates a lot of junk too. By removing the recovery tank, you can see where the corrugated tube transfers fluid into another narrow channel which carries it vertically to the top of the recovery tank. The small section of hose seems to be the only thing that stays clean and doesn't limit flow and vacuum. The filter at the top of the tank, which keeps fluid out of the vacuum motor can also get plugged with dirt. Hope this helps.

Hoover Floormate won't dispense clean solution


The tank sits on what is called a reservior asm, that may have gone bad. Does the water flow out of the tank when you push in the valve at the bottom?
