    Thanks. You are probably right about the belt. I have cleaned the brushes and they turn freely. How do I get inside the unit to see what may be causing the belt to seize up?

Hi,

I am sorry to tell you that your vacuum motor burnt. The only remedy would be to replace the motor. But if the cost of replacing the motor is near the price of a new one, then might as well buy a new one.

Let me know,if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

How do I check my hoover floormate deluxe spinscrub's filter and motor? Thanks in advance!!


The filter is at the top of the recovery tank (dirty water tank), should be replaced when dirty or odors occur. as to your motor, there is no way for an end user to remove any cover and check it. If you are experiencing noise, have it checked by an authorized service center.

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!

My Hoover floormate motor started smoking. It is over 9 years old. I keep the floor brushes clean. I am wonder if replacing the mother is worth it.


MSRP on this motor is $69.95. Labor may be another $30.00. I often see these units in thrift shops, which may be worth a try.

Smoke comes out when turned on and weak hum


The motor winding has probably shorted to the stator metal, or the armatur has shorted. You'll need a new motor.

Hoover Floormate brushes won't turn


With the drive assembly removed it is a black rectangle with a black piece extending down and to the right. There is a metalic fitting that engages the brushes. With nothing attached turn the motor on with the switch. If it doesn;t turn either the switch is bad or the motor is burned out. If you have a voltmeter check the ouyput side of the switch. If voltage is there check the motor plug. If good there the motor is bad. Hope this helps. Yes, the motor does get voltage when the switch is on. You can find parts by entering Hoover FloorMate H3000 parts into Google.
