Question about Hoover Floormate H3000 Upright Wet/Dry Vacuum

2 Answers

My hoover floormate leaks continuously

I guess I shouldn't be complaining, because at least I can still use my scrubber. But after reading all the different problems, I too have noticed that besides the leaking, it seams like my scrubber is not getting the floor as dry as it use to and that the reservoir does not fit like it should. Is this just coincidental or a defect that the manufacturer is aware of and has some suggestions. If it is a problem that can be fixed with some new "O" rings please let me know where I can purchase them.

    gasket around the little intake that fits into the solution tank is wore out and causes it to leak continually

    My H3000 floor mate leaks continously. I think I am missing the O ring that sits on the vacuum opening at point where the clean water tank makes contact with the vacuum. I talked with a vacuum store and they claimed they did not see an O ring at this site, which does not make sense to me as there is the perfect little divet for an O ring. I did buy an O ring from Ace Hardware but it did not fit snug and the device still leaked. Has anyone else had this problem? If so, how did you fix it?

Go to Lowes or Home Depot and buy a No. 6 o-ring. It goes over the nipple which connects to the detergent reservoir.

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, also you could have a bad tank assm or like you said in your request that the gaskets need replacing, the tank should fit properly and it could be warped or the gaskets could be bad, 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:

Hi, how do I check my hoover floormate deluxe spinscrub's filter and motor?


Hi Mike! To check the filter on the Floormate deluxe, remove the dirty water tank and pull up on tank lid to separate from the base. Check foam filter for debris, if filter has debris, rinse it with water. To prevent internal damage make sure you are using only the Hoover Floormate detergent. If the machine is still noisy and smells bad we recommend taking it in to a Hoover authorized service center. Follow the link to find the nearest service center to you. Hope this helps!
