Having problems with your Hoover Floormate H3000 Upright Wet/Dry Vacuum ?
HOOVER FLOOR MATE WILL NOT SUCTION WATER
\015 THE FLOORMATE OPERATES WITH A SQUEAL AND WILL NOT SUCTION THE WATER BACK OFF THE FLOOR. DO I NEED TO CHANGE A BELT OR SOMETHING TO GET IT TO WORK PROPERLY AGAIN?\015
The squeegee needs to be replaced. Mine made a horrible noise, which I found I could fix by trimming the worn edge of the squeegee. This, of course, reduced the suction. I found a replacement part on Ebay, but you can also find them on Hoover.com
There are no belts. If it makes the noise with the brush assembly removed the motor drive assembly is bad. It ia a complete assembly that can easily be replace by a repairman or ypouself if you are cleaver with tools. Good luck.

Hoover SteamVac Plus 1200 upright hot water extractor Water/carpet cleaner applying o.k. Suction on the "floor" does not work. Suction on the hand tool works somewhat, but water is not collecting in the bucket. There is suction coming from the floor but water is not going into the bucket. It does not appear to be clogged because I can feel with my hand that air is flowing from the floor. The water is not being sucked into the bucket.

I have the Hoover max Extract 77 and when I'm cleaning the carpet, the clean water tank leaks on the floor, even if I'm not squeezing the trigger. The clean tank doesn't leak when I fill it, but once I place it where it fits and start using the vacuum, the clean water drains out on the floor. The dirty tank fills up, so the suction works, but, I don't know what is going on?

Suction Problem I just borrowed the Hoover Steam Vac Deluxe w/ 5 brush agitator from my neighbor and it worked ok for the first few minutes, although the suction would stop and go.

Makes me look as though I did it!
