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.

The tank sits on what is called the reservior asm. it is actuated by the control rod inside the handle. With the tank off, watch and see if you can see that rod hitting the reservior asm when you squeeze the trigger. If it is moving up and down on it, then the resorvior asm may be bad. Also check the valve at the bottom of the tank, manually push it in and see if it releases water.

SOURCE: Hoover FloorMate won't pick water up

Check for the filter in place and it also requires a filter lid for proper suction or it will not work

SOURCE: 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

Water keeps coming out of my hoover spin scrub


The bottom of the solution tank has a rubber stopper, if this tank is not installed just right that rubber can get caught, or damaged. Here is the manual for your machine.

Hoover Floormate brushes won't turn


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.

Floor Mate


There is a black shaft with a black circular arm at a right angle to the shaft. The black plastic arm that sticks out of the front ( farthest away from the hinge) of the roller assembly plugs into the circular arm so that moving the scrub/vacuum slider causes the roller assembly to move up and down. I can do it with my finger, or use a flat blade screwdriver. I'm assuming you mean the black plastic thing with the little rollers on it.
