    i did download manual, it said nothing about what to do if brushes do not touch floor. the brushes do not come close to touching floor, like an inch above. there is no way the floor can be cleaned unless they sit directly on floor!!! help!!!

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

    I have found that the front nozlle may not be on correctly. First take off the nozzle and see if the head or brushes come closer to the floor.



    If this solves the problem, then you know it has something to do with having the nozlle on correctly.



    If this doesn not solve your problem, you'll need to take to an authorised repair station

take it to an appliance repair shop for a diagnosis and quote for repairs
could be a simple motor problem or could be more costly
any way the quote will show you to repair or replace with a new model

How do you change the scrub heads on a Floormate SpinScrub 500?


Hey there! To change out your brush heads simply follow the instructions below.

1. Remove the nozzle by pulling the two nozzle release buttons.
2. Tilt cleaner back so handle rests on floor.
3. Push two brush release buttons and remove the brush assembly.
4. To replace brushes align post on brush block with hole on bottom of cleaner. Turn brushes slightly until post fits easily into hole. Press brush assembly firmly to snap into place.

Hope this helps!

Will not dry or suck up water at all...BRAND NEW


If it's brand new your best bet might be taking it to a Hoover service center. That'll have a year warranty on it so the fix would be free.

I used my Hoover FloorMate, SpinScrub Hard Floor Cleaner for the first time today. My intent was to clean the grout in my kitchen/family room floor. Since the water was dirty I know it cleaned the grout...


The Hoover model 800 has seperate brush assembly to do grout. The 500 model (yours) has only the one hight brushes so other means must be taken to do grout. I have a 500 and all tile floors and I'm bumbed too.

Brushes won't spin


The power wire may be disconnected
take apart the unit at the top (Behind the cleaning fluid container) Inside there is a wire coming up from the motor at the bottom of the unit. This can come unlpugged no longer powering the scrub brushes. Simply slip the wire back on the plug.

To open: remove all visible screws from top half of machine. Remove the rubber mode dial by pulling off, and remove screw behind that. Pull the front off, and the power plugs are located right on the inside of the machine by the mode dial

Spin bruches don't touch floor.


It seems to be a common problem with this series of floormate... some home quickfixes (a hassle, i kno) but put downward pressure while using the solution.... Check your warranty that came with it, and how long you purchased the floormate... Alot of vaccuums come with 30-90 warranties, I'd recommend having it checked out. That, or if u bought it recent enough,take it back... like i said, these models are unfortunately known to have this problem... Some people have ones that operate normally, but alot do not. >.<
