Question about Hoover Floormate H3000 Upright Wet/Dry Vacuum

1 Answer

I have a hoover 3000 i have not used in awhile, and since I removed a large rug, I would like to use it again on my slate floor. HOWEVER, I cannot get it to pick up ANY water in the water recovery unit......it is dry, dry, dry. I have put in a new filter, cleaned the nozzle unit, the scrubber , and reconnected both the recovery unit and the water unit several times, but to no avail. I would like to get a graut attachment a well as replacement part, but since I can't get the basic unit to work, I am very skeptical. PLEASE ADVISE............I have checked all your previous answers online as well as tried them.

Have you made sure the plastic filter cover with the round hole in it that covers the filter is in place ( part # 59177096 ). This piece seems to get lost, and without it there is no pick-up. The other common problem is that the wheel assembly has been damaged. Look at the bottom of the Floormate. You will see a black plastic wheel assembly. There are two pegs at the rear attaching it to the base. If this piece has a crack in it where it attaches to the base, there will be no pick-up.

My new Hoover breeze makes terrible noise when hovering parquet flooring but alright on rugs why?


The brushes are hitting the hard floor surface. Normally it's best to have the brushes turned off when vacuuming hard surface floors but your model probably does not have that option.

Hoover F5914900: when left sitting for awhile there remains a large puddle of liquid on the floor. where would it be leaking or coming from.


it happened to me (different model, but same principle of operation) - now to remember how I fixed it. The easy way is to remove the solution tank if it is going to set a while. When the tank is sitting on the platform, the valves are open and the water goes into a sponge in that platform. I had to disassemble that platform. It may have been that the sponge was deformed and was not blocking the opening under the tank and I replaced the sponge. When the machine is running it sucks water and/or solution. When it is not the sponge holds back the water. Hope this points you in the right direction as that is all I remember.

My Hoover SteamVac Max Extract 77's dirty water tank won't fill. The water seems to just filter right back to the floor. What do i do???


There are several possibilities for low pick up. The most common problem is that the lid is not correctly seated on the recovery (lower) tank. It is also possible that the rubber seal on the motor standpipe is out of place. The round tube on the bottom of the tank sits against the seal. Remove the tank and look for a large rubber ring on top of a plastic pipe. A less common issue is damage to the rug nozzle because the screws holding it against the carpet have been broken loose by dropping the shampooer on it's nose.

I have the hoover automatic dual vac 5. this is the 3rd hoover rug cleaner i purchased and always the same problem the spray underneth the rotator bars hardly dispenses and the floor hardly gets wet, this...


The carpet is not intended to get soaked, like what you see with a spray application. If you are seeing a stream of water in the nozzle/tank during the recovery stroke, this is working properly.

Rug and floor nozzle brush not moving


What I had to do was take apart the vacuum head...which is very confusing, and the manual doesn't tell you how...the "secret" is to use a flat screwdriver to pop out the little wheels...there are two other screws "hidden" beneath them. Be careful as this exposes all the electrical parts as well - make sure you're unplugged! : )

Hoover Windtunnel carpet level adjustment


The suction is so great that it sucks up your carpet, then nothing works. I get my children to stand on the corners/edges of the rug so that it stays perfectly flat on the floor while I vacuum. Or, you can turn off the brush roller (set it to "hard floor" setting). Or, tip the vacuum cleaner's front up slightly while vacuuming, to reduce suction.

Sounds like either the hose or the inlet down where the brush roll is is clogged. Either that or you have a motor fan problem. But this has a years warranty on it, so find out who in your area does Hoover Warranty and take it in for repair.
