SOURCE: Hoover Floormate has lost most vacuum capability

Check to make sure that the filter cover is in place. This is commonly lost or misplaced. It is a clear-blue plastic cover that lines up with the motor intake and acts as a link for the tank.
Also, check the squeegees and make sure they are not torn. If they are, they will not allow the suction to concentrate in the nozzle. Also, check the black plastic wheel assy under the machine. These are notorious for breaking at the pivot pins at the back and this will not allow the machine to sit on the floor properly and will contribute to this problem.

SOURCE: drive belt burns up after every two vacuumings.

This problem happens a lot on this model the belt wheals get out of shape or strings get wrapped around them, Check the belt wheal by taking a knife and running it over the wheals to see if there is anything wrapped around them if so clean them off and clean any gunk that is built up in the space the brush roller fits in. Some times the strings wrapped around the roller will burn black and you cant see them that is why you need to take a knife over them to make sure there are none there and there is no gunk builds up on the belt wheal,

Are the brushes worn down too far? As they wear the springs tension gets weaker. The brushes can also get stuck inside the channel they slide in. Could also be a buildup of dust etc inside and around the internal fan or commutator, etc.

I have a hoover floor mate hard floor cleaner and the brushes won't spin


Hi, it's Jeremy from Crucial Vacuum.

In the link below you will find the user manual for your Hoover Floor Mate vacuum:
http://hoover.com/file/597/

Here are a few repair tips to make fixing your vacuum easy. Your Hoover brush-roll is connected to the motor by two different sized geared belts. Over time, the belt's gears wear down and stretch out losing the grooves and tension that turn the roller. When this happens you will simply have to attach a new set of belts. Another reason why your brush is not spinning could be that there is debris stuck in the roller and/or bearings. You can either use a can of compressed air to remove the debris or simply remove it with your hand.

Using the hoover steam vac for the 1 st time and it was borrowed from a friend but no manual was provided...just need to now where exactly the water goes in the bottom or the top?



The clean solution with the shampoo mixed in goes into the top tank, and when you **** up the water it goes into the lower tank.

Here's a link to the manual online that will show you precisely how to use this machine. If you have any questions, or need help with something else, please don't hesitate to use the clarification request form here on Fixya.

How do I replace the drive belt in the hoover u6401?


Remove the plate from the vacuum's underside. You will see fourscrews or two clips that attach the plate to the vacuum. Removingthe plate will give you access to where the belts are running. Remove the old belts and replace with new belts. The hoover self-propelled models use two different belts. One is a flat belt Hoover #38528035 and the other is a V belt Hoover #38528034. You can find these belts at www.vacbelts.com on these pages:

Water leaks


I removed the clean water tank to refill it and all the cleaning solution poured out onto the floor. Turns out a plastic pin with a spring and a rubber washer also fell out onto the floor leaving a hole in the bottom of the tank. Calls to Hoover and local repair center all ended the same with the need to order a new clean water tank for about $45 and two weeks for delivery. Went to my local True Value Hardware store and within a few minutes we found a workaround using two 7/16"x 1/4"x3/32" #780 Ring from Danco Inc. Pulled off the proprietary Hoover O Ring that had obviously failed and put two of these O Rings on in its place and so far it is working perfectly. Total cost $1.35. Would be nice if Hoover cared to take better care of their customers by offering this almost free and quick solution to the problem.
