Hoover Floormate--Does not pick up water.


First make sure that you are getting suction from the bottom of he machine. Most of the time the squeegee is worn out which does not allow it to pick up the water like it use to. Turn over the machine and inspect the squeegee. If it looks worn or bent then it may be time to replace it. You may also consider replacing the filter. These are the two most common parts that wear out.

here is a link the parts for your a h3000 floormate

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.

The bottom tank is not filling up with water and it seems like less liquid is being released out of the top tank


Your diffuser may be clogged above the brushes. check the front squeegee to make sure that it is in tact. Remove the lower tank and look at the intake hose, these often tear over time due to plastic getting stiff.

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 H3000 replace water intake hose


I have the same model with a broken water recovery hose. I can tell you how to get the old one off. Would you tell me Hoover's name and part# or item# for the part? I'm not sure I have found the right name or part number to order...

Remove the recovery tank. Remove 2 screws behind the recovery tank that hold a plastic cover on the collar connecting the recovrery hose to the "flat" plastic channel mounted behind the recovery tank. Remove the front nozzle and the brushes. Remove the grey outer cover from the top of the floor head section by prying upwardd on the front of the grey cover. Remove the plastic tie strap from around the recovery hose, water delivery hose, and the cable that runs up the length of the handle to the button that turns the brush motor on/off. I was able to "relaese the locking mechanism" on my tie strap and remove it so I think it is reusable, but you may have to cut/break yours then replace it on reassembly.

Now you have to unhook the front of the wheel assembly so it will swing down out of the way. This will be easier if you set the Dry/Wet selector to "Dry Pickup". To unhook the wheel assembly: (1) Dissconnect the cable associted with the brushes by pulling the black ball on the end of the cable upwards and out of the small black rectangular plastic connector. You'll probably also have to pull the cable's outer sheath upwards out of the channel it rests in. (2) Look directly behind and below where that ball was connected to find a small black post around which an arm is fastened by an elongated hole on the end of the arm. This post is designed to "pop" in and out of palce. (3) Using something like a pair of needle nose pliers, pop the post out by applying pressure toward the side of the head that has the Handle Release lever. (Be carefull not to drop and loose this post as I almost did.) Now from beneath the head, with a little force and some wiggling you should be able to pull the front of the wheel assambly downward so it swings out of the way.

The best way I can think to describe the next steps is if you look at the new part you'll see 2 tabs sticking down from the bottom of it with slots in them One tab hooks on a bump in the aqua colored plastic just behind the black Brush Motor housing and one hooks on a similar bump just forward of the Brush Motor housing. Looking at the head from the bottom, the rear tab is easy to see. To see the front one, look for a small slot in the aqua plastic. Reach a small screwdriver in from the bottom of the head and pry these tabs off the bumps while applying some pressure on the old recovery hose part (the rear tab goes to the rear and the front tab goes forward). I broke both tabs off my old recovery hose part and luckily didn't do much damage to the bumps. Once you release these tabs the part should be loose from the head.

Now press the Handle Release to tilt the head down in a typical operating posoition and you should be able to pull the hose connector down off the "flat" plastic channel and out toward the front of the machine. If the new part does not come with a connector on the top end of the hose, you can unscrew the old connector from the old hose (turning the opposite direction of normal threads) and srcew it onto the new hose.

Floor mate


There is a little post in the back where you insert the top solution/water tank, if you put the tank in incorrectly, (i.e., shoved it in, instead of putting it in at an angle, bottom first) there is a chance you broke it or bent it backwards. My mother broke mine, i've got the post but don't know the part, without that post inserted into the tank the water will not come out.

Floormate stopped sucking up water as well as it used to


Don't know how much dirt has accumulated in the recovery system, but mine was amazing for no more than we use it. The front of the head detaches and you can clearly see where the solution is being vacuumed into. A thin rectangular channel then carries the fluid to a corrugated hose in the back of the head. This channel accumulates a lot of junk too. By removing the recovery tank, you can see where the corrugated tube transfers fluid into another narrow channel which carries it vertically to the top of the recovery tank. The small section of hose seems to be the only thing that stays clean and doesn't limit flow and vacuum. The filter at the top of the tank, which keeps fluid out of the vacuum motor can also get plugged with dirt. Hope this helps.

Hoover floor mate stopped picking up the water


Usually when this happens, it has to do with a dirty or bad filter(#45, 40112050). Or the recovery tank isn't seating like it should. Maybe this picture will help.

The floorplate broke off my Floormate H3000


I'm assuming that the floor plate your referring to is the wheel assy. This is a common problem on the H3000 series. You will have to remove the two pivot brngs on either side of the handle where it pivots on the base. Once removed, flip the machine over and you will have the necessary clearance to insall the new wheel assy. The difficult part will be attaching the front arm assy using little plastic pin provided. You can use a small pair of needle nose pliers to guide the pin into place and then use a larger pair of needle nose to squeeze GENTLY to push the pin into place. Once done, re-install the pivot brngs and your done.
