Question about Hoover Floormate H3000 Upright Wet/Dry Vacuum
When I turn the vacuum on, the filter sucks up against the top causing low suction and nothing will suck up.
See my post with the same problem (described in painful detail) at:
I've no idea why this should happen all of a sudden. But it has. And so far nobody is suggesting anything.

Tips for a great answer:
1. Remove the dirt cup canister from the vacuum. Remove the dirt cup lid.
2. Remove the primary foam filter. Rinse the filter under running water until it runs clear. Allow 24 hours to air dry outside of the vacuum.
3. Slide the Hepa filter out. Tap the filter against the trash can until dirt stops falling. Replace the Hepa filter. (Do not wash) Filters should be replaced once a year.
4. Remove the hose from both ends. Use a broom stick to gently loosen and clear any clogs from hose.
5. Remove the bottom plate and brushroll. Use a wooden spoon or something similar to loosen and remove any clogs from the lower hose.
6. Check that the brushes are still spinning. If not, replace the belt.
Hope this helps!
