I didn't find this as difficlut as red devil 6, however, having 2 people helps. Remove the brush assembly using the 2 brush release buttons. Remove the front nozzel by sliding the 2 nozzel release clips away from the unit. Do NOT remove any screws from the underside of the floor mate base.

Before you begin....on the new wheel assembly, locate the "spring loaded lever" that is attached by the 2 brass screws. Notice that it can be pushed to the side and it locks in place. If pushed again it releases. This is important when you go to make sure the wet/dry pick up indicator is working near the last step of the process.

The top grey cover on the base of the unit lifts off accessing the hubs that hold the handle to the base.

To remove the top grey cover, there are 6 clips that you have to move to one side or the other with a narrow flat blade screw driver. All 6 of these clips are accessed from the underside of the base unit. Work gently...red devil 6 was correct, you can break things easily.

GENTLY pry up the top grey cover exposing the 2 black hubs holding the handle to the base. Remove the 4 screws holding the hubs to the base. I found it easier to have the handle in the down position to remove the cover. I found it easier to have the handle up for 2 screws and down for the other 2 screws.

This is where 2 people come in handy. One person (me) holds the handle and base apart while the other person (my wife) installs the wheel assemlby. It is a little tricky to get in place. My wife found it easiest to install the nubs first (yes nubs, like a little axel that holds the wheel assembly to the base) at the back of the wheel assembly, then slip the pin at the front of the wheel assembly into its position (where the old one came from).

Reset handle and hubs into the base and tighten 4 screws.

Before you go any further, make sure your dry/wet pickup indicator works.....The INDICATOR is the thing that has two red spots on it and tells you if you are on wet or dry pickup. GENTLY TRY to work the wet dry pedal with you HAND to see if the indicator swithces between wet and dry easily. If you are not GENTAl and you force it, you WILL BREAK it. If it does EAISLY go back and forth between wet and dry you have to reset the indicator. Push the indicator stem (the stem that sticks down into the base) up through the base and push the spring loaded lever (see before you begin above) assembly on the wheel assembly to the side. Reinstall the indicator stem and make sure the little spring end is positioned over top of the plastic stub. Recheck GENTLY the function of the wet/dry pickup foot pedal, but use your HAND.

Finally, reinstall top grey cover. It's a little tricky but we found it helpful to have the handle in the down position. Make sure it snaps back into place.

You did it!.

This took my wife and I about 45 minutes to 1 hour....but at least half of the time was spent going slow to ensure I didn't break anything else.

Good luck.

SOURCE: auto brush on hoover windtunnel doesn't spin anymore

I have a Windtunnel S3765 with the same problem - and it has very little use so I'm confident it isn't wear. I find that the wheels do not raise the agitator brush sufficiently high to reduce the drag caused by excessive contact with the carpet. If I raise the front a bit the brush spins as it should. It also works if I take the housing apart and use it without ..... but this is tricky.

Unfortunately I haven't figured out a way to hold it up efficiently. I am toying with afixing something to the bottom of the housing to raise the front enough to give the brush a little more room.

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.

Hoover 8+spin1600 forever banging when spinning16


Hi! If your unit is noisy while the brushes are spinning this can mean that your brushes are worn or damaged. Try removing the brushes by pushing the two brush release buttons at the same time. Turn the cleaner on and see if the noise persists. If the noise stops with the brushes removed, you will need to replace your brushes. I have included a link below where you may go to purchase a replacement brush roll if needed. Hope this helps!

H3000 Motor becomes very hot during use


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.

Spin brush will not spin. local repair man said one gear stripped and motor would need replacement. is this correct??


There is a plastic rod that sticks out of the back of the spin brush, this makes all of the brushes rotate. The motor would need to be replaced if it was not turning on anymore. this doesn't sound right...?

I think it is just a broken piece of plastic on the block brush which will need to be replaced.

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

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.

Brushes not contacting floor


It is unlikely that you have worn the brushes to the point that they no longer contact the floor properly unless you use it daily and have a very rough tile or concrete floor and even then they should outlast the machine. It is more likely that there is a problem with the switch that moves them up and down for different floor settings. Also remember that the brushes will be up while the unit is in the upright position no matter what the switch is set to only when you bring the handle down in the operating position do the brushes lower to contact the floor. Pull the brushes out and check to see nothing is interfering with the operation of the brush adjustment or for any broken parts. As for the squeegee they do get deformed and this will prevent the unit for sucking up the water properly so it should be replaced if needed. For any parts visit www.stevessewandvac.com if you don't see what you need listed email them someone can help.

Hoover H3000 Floor Mat
I have a H3000 Floor Mat the problem is it won’t pick up the water after the scrub clean the floor. What could be the causing the problem?

I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure.
The problem could be that the Hoover H3000 Floor Mat could be clogged or something is blocking the suction port or you may have a pinched line of some type of which would cause it to not pickup, feel free to check with a local vacuum dealer in your area or in the yellow pages or the Hoover factory phone number is listed below:
