Question about Hoover H3030 FloorMate SpinScrub 500 Upright Wet/Dry Vacuum

Open Question

Why does the vacuum mode on my Hoover FloorMate SpinsScrub keep engaging?

The first 20 minutes I used this floor cleaner the unit worked great; however, the vacuum mode now keeps engaging while I am trying to use the scrub and/or dry modes. I will be using the unit in scrub mode and the vacuum will "click" on - I can hear the unit start the vacuum. It now won't work in scrub or dry mode for more than a few seconds before starting the vacuum. Help?

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. >.<

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.

SOURCE: Hoover wind tunnel vacuum cleaner shuts off during use

Check the inlet down by the brush roll to make sure it isn't clogged. If not and the hose isn't clogged, then probably the thermo protector (part #28382093) maybe bad. It is mounted near the motor. Could be motor Part #43576188. But I would suspect a clog in the inlet or hose, or the thermo protector has gone bad.

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.

Unable to find recomended cleaner for floor mate, what can I use


Do NOT use ammonia...it will destroy the seals. #1 NEVER leave solution in the tank...and clean everything after every use. Lowe's and/or Home Depot have Bissels cleaner for the Hoover Floormate...also check Target and Walmart's sweeper dept. If ALL fails, you may use Zep Pine Cleaner (Home Depot) in a diluted 2oz. to 1qt. water...filling ONLY the little reservoir with this dilution!!!!! Good Luck.

Troubleshoot floormate spinscrub 800 floor cleaner


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

Does not pick up water
Posted by Dreams642 on Apr 20, 2008
I have had my Hoover Floormate for years. It has always worked great but the last few times I used it the amount of water left is tremendous and the container for dirty water was not full at all. I looked at it and the hose going up from the bottom thru the handle is broken how do I fix this.

Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. Hoover Floormate H3000 Upright Wet/Dry Vacuum. You can down load the owner manual from the Hoover website www.hoover.com . It looks like the one of the holding or recovery tanks my not be in place, leaking, cracked or damaged, or the clear tube is leaking and needs replacing. I looked 2 the owner’s manual and it does not show the clear tube but the vacuum does come apart and just back track the clear tube and mark the screws when you disassemble the unit. Other wise , please call the factory or a local Hoover warranty station in your area. So if you need further assistance, please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or in the yellow pages, or contact the factory phone number or website to further assist you with your questions.
