Check the inspection hoses - especially the hose from the floor head to the main water tank - sounds like there is a clogged piece of dirt getting in the way as well as the main floor brush.

I have a hoover floormate h-2800 that does not suck up the water


this is a great vacuum. however it does require an extensive cleaning every now and then. diaassembly is required for this. there is a hose that goes from pick up to the tank. make sure this is clear. also your filter should be clean and dry.

Hoover floor mate is not sucking up water, why?


First make sure that you are getting suction from the bottom of the 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.

Floormate stopped vacuming water


I'll answer last question first. Your floormate has a 1 year warranty. And should be taken in for repair.

Your issue of not picking up water, is related to suction and getting the dirty water to the recovery tank. check for obstruction in the nozzle, check the filter for debris clogging. If you have an issue with this dealer I would call customer support.

I am also having the same problem - it will not dispense the cleaning fluid - it is more work trying to get the thing to work than it is actually cleaning the floor.


I just took the dispenser out and splashed the mixed water and cleaning solution on the floor, it works well, but I'd rather use a good spray bottle on my next floor cause the splashed can cause spots, unless the floor is already wet. In addition this floor mate is slow if compared to a spray bottle and a sponge on your bottom foot, moping and sliding your foot over stains, and mopping up till clean and streak free. Furthermore, I used Murpys oil instead, its works good Im happy, and tired this job requires constant cleaning and rinsing of your mop bucket, with a one man team, alot of furniture and a piano its alot of work, but worth it at the end, later, going for starbucks for that pick me up.

Troubleshoot floormate spinscrub 800 floor cleaner


The brushes are not designed to scub the floor, they only lightly touch the floor. Make sure the front nozzle is put on correcdtly. Make sure your filter is dry and clean. I wet filter will give poor suction down to the nozzel. Down load the manuel at Hoover.com. The model is located on the back of the unit. H3000, or H3010

Floormate will not **** dirty water.


Check the hose coming out of the floor assembly. It tends to split, keeping it from picking up the water

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, 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:

Hoover floormate plus model #H3010


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. >.<
