Question about Hoover Floormate H3000 Upright Wet/Dry Vacuum
Do the motor brushes need replacing? I'm afraid I will burn the motor out. I noticed the problem due to the motor smelling hot.
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.

These motors have a fuse incorporated in the field winding and it sounds like that blew. These motors sometimes overheat at the front bearing and the bearing will melt into the plastic housing. This will cause the fuse to blow. It sounds like that's your problem. You can remove the motor by removing the three screws on the bottom of the powerhead and then check the front bearing for any bubbling or blistering in the plastic housing. The shaft of the motor should turn easily.

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.

SOURCE: No Suction
The water channel hose could be torn. you can check by removing the lower tank and tilting it backwards, it is located in the lower section. could also be the filter cover. it is needed for full suction control.

That means that the belt is stretched and it is slipping on the motor shaft, that is why it is hot and smells like burning rubber. You need to replace the belt. Here is the correct belt you need:
