George i have just bought George from a friend and he has never used the wet side of things . When i turned the hoover on i cant seem to get the wet button to work. Do i have to have the hoover main button on first and then press the wet button?

    The hoover facility is fantastic but when I try to shampoo my carpets I have the sound but not the action. I've borrowed this from a friend who is not around to ask.

    Just been given one also and same issue. At first the wet switch didn't spark at all, then it was left plugged in and the switched inadvertently engaged and after about 10 mins suddenlt came on. I don't think the pump itself is working though... Can this be easily accessed and fixed at home??

The pump can seize up if the the system is not flushed with clean water after using carpet shampoo. You should run half a tank of clean water through Geroge before putting him away.The only solution is a new pump or pump motor.

Hi.

No the switch for the pump will work without main vacuum switched on.
Your problem could either be faulty pump switch or faulty pump,
You should be able to get spares relatively easy from any independant vacuum repair shop.
Dont try currys etc they wont have a clue what your talking about.

My new hover floormate is running very loudly and it smells like burning rubber. it seems to be working okay otherwise.


If it's new ( as in less than 30 days ) take it back where you bought it and get it repaired or replaced. If it's over 30 days take it to your nearest Hoover warranty station. It shouldn't smell like burning rubber.

How do I clean out the suction side of a Hoover steam-vac Model#f6020-900. I took all the screws out and still cant get it apart.I vacuum before using it, but it still seems to find more hair.


These don't come apart. Hoover makes a thin long tool that will allow you to stick up into this suction side to clean it or use a long piece of galvanized metal strip to slide up into it and clear away the hair.

Hoover floor mate 500


If you mean the footswitch that shifts from wet to dry, trun the machine over with the brush assembly removed. There is a black rectangular oush button on the left side. This is the wet/dry switch. Make sure it is in contact with the white post to the left of it . It is the indicator that moves when you step on it. Push the button all the way in and out until it latches. After that it should work OK. Hope yhis helps.

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.
