Question about Hoover Floormate H3000 Upright Wet/Dry Vacuum
SOURCE: The brushes have stopped moving.
You should check the intake screen on the turbine. On some models it is located behind the glass window just above the circular indicator that spins with the brushes. On other models, it is located on the underside of the machine just behind the brush block assy. It is housed in a bright orange/red cassette that is only partially visible until you pull it out. This screen is responsible for keeping debris out of the trubine but will restrict airflow when clogged and the brushes will stop.
Otherwise, the bearings in the trubine may be rusted and siezed from water entering the turbine in which case, the turbine would have to be removed, dissmantled and repaired or in extreme cases, replaced. I have repaired many in my shop but some have to be replaced.

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: Red float keeps popping up
You need to clean the debris channel. Put the machine on a waist high flat surface open it and remove the dirty water container. You will see three vertical screws which lock the scroll above the motor to the clear plastic panel at the front of the machine. Open these screws and remember which one belongs where. To the left of the scroll, there is a black horizontal screw which should also be removed. If you look closely, you will see the right hand of the first three screws (brushes face to your right hand) has also released the plexiglass (clear plastic screen where you see the dirt and soap flowing at the left side. Now put the machine on its side and look at the front edge of the plexiglass just ahead of the brushes. There are two screws which have to be removed - one on each side and bingo the plexiglass shape lifts clear. Clean out the muck, check the scroll channel for similar muck and reassemble.
The muck is plugging the dirt path and fooling the red float that the tank is full.
Re assemble the reverse of the disassembly procedure. Do not use a power screwdriver as you will likely shear the screw heads.

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.
