    What is the removable block, what does it look like. I think that may be my problem.

    What is the part number for the removable block on the recovery tank? I loaned out the unit & when it came back that part was missing? Also where can I buy that part
    Thanks Fred [email protected]

Is the lid to the dirty water tank on all of the way? Check the filter inside the dirty water tank to make sure it isn't pushed up all the way, it needs a 1/4 in. gap between the top and the top of the filter. If this has the type of tank that has a removalable block on the front of it, is it installed?

My hoover spin scrub has no suction wont pick up water why?


No suction means somewhere in the intake side of the system you have either a blockage or an air leak.

Why it won't pick up water?


Make sure the switch is on the setting you are using, I.E. spin scrub. If this isn't the problem you may have a bad turbine blade, if the scrubber brushes aren't turning that is your problem. $45, a screw driver and general mech. abillities will fix it. http://www.vacpartswarehouse.com

The SpinScrub scrubs the floor beautifully, but doesn't pick up the water/solution. I needed to use a mop to get up the liquid. Any suggestions?


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.

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

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

Dirty water comes out when I stop scrubbing. Floors remain wet.


Try one thing... the filter cover must be clicked into place. I thought it just sat on top, but it has to be pushed into place.

Can't do it. The machine vacuums in both scrub and pick-up. Sorry.

I cannot figure out how to use my cleaner floor mate


At the risk of giving a simplistic answer, let me go through the steps I go through every time I use mine:
1) Plug it into the wall
2) Take out the upper "hopper" and fill it up to the fill line with hot water
3) Put in the capful of cleaning solution (about 2 oz.)
4) Gently swish it back and forth, then put back into upper unit until it clicks into place
5) For best results, set the vacuum on Dry and vacuum the house first, then clean the lower "hopper"
6) Set the vacuum to Wet, put the scrub brushes on, depress the trigger and do overlapping strokes, a section at a time I depress the trigger on the push stroke, then release it for the pull stroke. I clean a section, then turn off the scrub brushes and go over it again without the scrub brush or touching the trigger (trying to pick up as much water as possible).

On average, when refilling the water/cleaner solution for the top hopper, empty and clean the lower hopper. When the floors are finished, completely clean that lower hopper or it will smell!

Hope this helps...

I have a H3000 Floor Mat the problem is it won’t pick up the water after the scrub clean the floor. What could be the causing the problem?

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:
