Re: hoover floormate

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. >.<

Hoover floor mate h3000 will not suction water from floor when cleaning

Your collection canister may not be positioned tight enough in its place ment site. Tip machine back using foot pedal (as if you were going tio start using machine to clean) Insert collection canister (bottom container, then insert top canister with solution. The two canisters must be flush with machine side seams and must sit in position tightly. This is sometimes very tricky and may take a little elbow grease to make it click into place. Hope this helps

There is no suction on Hoover Floormate. Have cleaned everything I can see or remove

check the hose from the base to the water channel when handle is down, and see if the hose is split and open. it becomes brittle and breaks as it ages.

My floormate is not suctioning very well. Tech support told me to take out the brushes and put them back in and this helped for a little bit then it went back to not suctioning. deb

When you took the brushes out, was there hair wrapped around them? Sometimes they just need to be cleaned off. When you take them off, there is a belt they connect to that also goes around a gear -- make sure the belt and gear don't have hair wrapped around them either.

Hope that helps!

No Suction

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.

My steam vac deluxe does not have enough suction to pick up water

For the brushes:

The power wire may have slipped off. 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.

for the suction, check the intake hose the comes out from behind the floor assembly. it tends to split over time

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

There are no belts. If it makes the noise with the brush assembly removed the motor drive assembly is bad. It ia a complete assembly that can easily be replace by a repairman or ypouself if you are cleaver with tools. Good luck.

Brushes stop spinning after one minute

Check any filters that may be clogged, try running a mix of water and vinegar thru it, to clean out the lines and brush block. Brush block may be bad.

buy a new solution tank. the problem might be that your not rinsing the tank with clear water after use and the soap hardens on the release button of the tank.
