Question about Hoover Floormate H3000 Upright Wet/Dry Vacuum

2 Answers

Wet pickup has no suction. Dirty water stays on floor. I tipped it over and held a tissue in front of the wheels to see if the Floormate had any suction whatsoever; it does not. What now?

    I have the same problem, except I am getting a little suction just not enough to pick up the water. I have a clean filter, I would like to try something, anything before I start taking it apart. Any suggestions?

Okay, I too had the same problem with the water. I read that darn manual again and realized that I hadn't clicked the filter cover on tight. Wallla! The tank fits better and it works like a charm! Who knew?

I would try replacing the filter first. That seems to be the most common problem when you have no suction.

Hoover floor mate h3000 will not suction water from floor when cleaning


Your collection canister may not be positioned tight enough in its place ment site. Tip machine back using foot pedal (as if you were going tio start using machine to clean) Insert collection canister (bottom container, then insert top canister with solution. The two canisters must be flush with machine side seams and must sit in position tightly. This is sometimes very tricky and may take a little elbow grease to make it click into place. Hope this helps

Hoover floor mate sucks up water while in the wash position


They do that. They pickup the water in all stages but lower the squeegee to different heights. At no point does the suction turn off.

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.

Floormate stopped vacuming water


I'll answer last question first. Your floormate has a 1 year warranty. And should be taken in for repair.

Your issue of not picking up water, is related to suction and getting the dirty water to the recovery tank. check for obstruction in the nozzle, check the filter for debris clogging. If you have an issue with this dealer I would call customer support.

Troubleshoot floormate spinscrub 800 floor cleaner


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

DOES NOT VACUUM NOW


Several possible problems:
1) Did you clean the blue lower pickup container (dirty water) before putting it away?
Take out the pickup container and open it up, check the filter (under the little blue piece on top) and also open up the container itself and clean under the flapper on the "screen".
2) Look inside the housing and check the vac hose that goes from the front of the unit up to the rubber grommet where it goes into the lower pickup container. Is it clogged? If yes, take off the front pickup (the part the runs along the floor in front of the rotating brushes) and run a very narrow lint pickup brush (like for cleaning dryer vents) and clean out the hose. It works great.
3) Check the front pickup for clogs and clean
4) If you are trying to pick up water, make sure the setting is set to wet. If you are trying to use it as a vacuum, set it to dry.

Hope this helps.

Hoover floormate 3060


You should first check to make sure that the machine is set on wet pick up and not dry. When in dry mode ( the front foot pedal on the left side) the machine is held slightly above the floor. When is wet mode, the squeegees drop down to the floor. The other problem may be the wheel assy is broken. Turn the machine over and check the black plastic wheel carrier at the back of the assy to see if the pivots are broken.
