Question about Hoover Floormate H3000 Upright Wet/Dry Vacuum

1 Answer

Hoover Floormate brushes won't turn

My Hoover Floormate H3000 brushes won't tun. I first checked the brush assemble (moves freely). Next I disassembled the bottom. Thought the drive gears may be jammed. When the motor is removed from the drive train, the gears move freely.

So the question is; does the drive motor get voltage when the power switch is on? I believe the motor is 120V 60Hz; where can I buy a replacement? Is there an electrical diagram on the Web?

With the drive assembly removed it is a black rectangle with a black piece extending down and to the right. There is a metalic fitting that engages the brushes. With nothing attached turn the motor on with the switch. If it doesn;t turn either the switch is bad or the motor is burned out. If you have a voltmeter check the ouyput side of the switch. If voltage is there check the motor plug. If good there the motor is bad. Hope this helps. Yes, the motor does get voltage when the switch is on. You can find parts by entering Hoover FloorMate H3000 parts into Google.

Hoover floormate will not dispense solution


this is the original Hoover Floormate, and may have a few different things that may be wrong. First check the fresh water tank is seated or installed properly. Second, it may be the pin on the actual unit itself that is not pushing in the plunger (located on the water tank) all the way to release the solution. Check for clogs above the brush block assembly the small holes may be plugged with dried sop solution.

H3000 Motor becomes very hot during use


Over heating on a floormate is cuased by obstructions or a clogged up filter. Try running it without the recovery tank. If it doesn't over heat you need to check for obstructions in the nozzle and the tube leading up to the recovery tank. if that is all clear, a new filter should fix it.

If the machine over heats without the recovery tank on it, you might be right. Hoover only sells motor assemblies, not just the brushes. I have never seen them used enough to need new motor brushes simply because of wear. If the brushes are worn down completely, there is probably a short in the motor.

Let me know if this helps.

Floormate does not disperse wet cleaning solution on the floor. brushes and vacuum pickup all work


First check to see that the wheel assembly is not broken. The assembly must move correctly to allow the fluid to be dispensed. Check for breakage at the rear of the wheel assembly where it attaches to the base. If this is not the problem, you may have a defective soap tank.

The brushes are not designed to scub the floor, they only lightly touch the floor. Make sure the front nozzle is put on correcdtly. Make sure your filter is dry and clean. I wet filter will give poor suction down to the nozzel. Down load the manuel at Hoover.com. The model is located on the back of the unit. H3000, or H3010

Floormate will not **** dirty water.


Check the hose coming out of the floor assembly. It tends to split, keeping it from picking up the water

My brush assembly fell off!


They lock into that blue arm with the two holes in it. The erm is plastic and has the spring loaded latches that hold the brushes in. If the latches have failed the brushes won;t stay in. The other option is the latch pins on the brushes have brocken or worn out. Turn the machine over and try to make the brushes latch, also push the brush release buttons several time to make sure they are working. Good-luck.
