Having problems with your Hoover Floormate H3000 Upright Wet/Dry Vacuum ?

I cannot figure out how to use my cleaner floor mate


Answers :

At the risk of giving a simplistic answer, let me go through the steps I go through every time I use mine:
\015\0121) Plug it into the wall
\015\0122) Take out the upper "hopper" and fill it up to the fill line with hot water
\015\0123) Put in the capful of cleaning solution (about 2 oz.)
\015\0124) Gently swish it back and forth, then put back into upper unit until it clicks into place
\015\0125) For best results, set the vacuum on Dry and vacuum the house first, then clean the lower "hopper"
\015\0126) 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).
\015\012
\015\012On 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!

My bissell proheat upright steam cleaner is spraying out through the attachments just fine, but will not spray to the floor when using upright. we've taken it apart to find that there is no water at all going through one of the hoses, but it appears the hose is connected behind the on/off and heat switches, we can't seem to figure out how to get in there to replace that hose....any suggestions on how to access this?? just curious how you would get in to replace the hose, we know it is the hose..

I used my Hoover FloorMate, SpinScrub Hard Floor Cleaner for the first time today. My intent was to clean the grout in my kitchen/family room floor. Since the water was dirty I know it cleaned the grout but I was only so-so pleased with the results. Any hints? What about the grout solution? Do you mean I can only use the Hoover product?


The Hoover model 800 has seperate brush assembly to do grout. The 500 model (yours) has only the one hight brushes so other means must be taken to do grout. I have a 500 and all tile floors and I'm bumbed too.\015\012\015\012Kirk Thompson ... Hoover Floormate H3000 Upright Wet/Dry Vacuum

Need instructions how to use Hoover Steam Vac Spin Scrub. I borrowed it from my Sister and she left it with no instruction book or letting me know how to operate it. I put water & cleaner in top tank. That's all I know to do. Do I put any water in bottom tank? I figured not, since that is probably where the water goes when sucked up by vac. Do I leave lid on bottom tank? I usually use a commercial cleaner, and this is very different. I need to know NOW, as I must return it to her today, and I'm

I've had my Dyson DC14 vacuum cleaner now for approximately 9 months and been very happy with my purchase. However, It is used sparingly maybe twice a week at the very most. The problem is when I try to use the item on my carpet, you have to push really hard to get it to move. It's as though the suction power is far to strong. It certainly doesn't glide as I think it should. It still picks up as usual but I cannot imagine that having to 'force' the machine to move is the normal operating procedu

My vacuum just stopped working, so I don't know what the problem is. I used it in the kitchen to vacuum the hard wood floor. I turned it off, and a few minutes later, turned it back on to finish vaccuuming the kitchen floor. It just would not turn on. I had not unplugged it or did anything to it. I then tried to see if it would work in another plug, and no luck. I'm trying to figure out if it can be fixed or if I need to look for a new vacuum.
