Stopped working 1 hour after purchasing new

Comments about Hoover FloorMate Deluxe Hard Floor Cleaner:

I purchased this one hour ago from Bed Bath and Beyond. Set up as directed, used the soap/water and cleaned one section of my living room. Unplugged and moved to a new section. After plugging into new outlet, it will not turn on after pushing the on/off rubber button HARD several times. Tried in a second outlet, doesn't work. Checked both outlets and they work on other appliances. This is a brand new product. Very disappointed to have problems this soon. Cannot recommend with this poor quality.


Handle won't attach. Screw won't come out

Comments about Hoover FloorMate Deluxe Hard Floor Cleaner:

I purchased a Floormate Deluxe a few months ago. Loved it. Gave it to my daughter to use on her entire house with stained concrete floors because it did a great job. On that one, the screw to attach the handle was packaged in a plastic bag attached to the handle. I purchased another Floormate Deluxe. The screw was already screwed in with a tag attached that said to remove the screw, attach handle and replace screw. Evidently someone else had returned the Floormate to the store because they couldn't remove the screw. The screw head was stripped. The screw was in so tight that it wouldn't budge. I exchanged it for another Floormate. The screw was already in place. In that Floormate, the screw just turns and won't come out. I have to return that Floormate also. I called Hoover. Customer Service said they started putting the screws in place because Floormates were being shipped without the screws. She told me to return the Floormate to the store for another model. I don't want another model.


Negative review? You're off your meds!

Comments about Hoover FloorMate Deluxe Hard Floor Cleaner:

Plain and simple folks- This isn't a magical, one machine does everything for you type deal. It is however, what it was intended to be; nothing more than a squeegee vac with scrubbing brushes. Most people's complaints about this machine are so ridiculous, I feel like I have to say what hoover is thinking, even though their customer service is too good to do so. The solution injection system isn't intended for you to Put whatever you feel like in it, not clean it, or store it in your closet chock full, and expect it not to leak. The fact of the matter is, hoover put their money where it mattered- into the meat and potatoes, which by the way, out perform anything I have ever owned/used. If you want to use your own cleaning solutions, not mater how caustic, just mix it up in a spray bottle, and let the machine scrub and vacuum it up. You wouldn't put diesel in your gasoline car, have it screw up, then give the manufacturer a bad time about it, so don't do it here either. The fluid injection system is the least important thing about this unit. Now that common sense has been spoken, I will say that the machine does more than they advertise. When I'm done using it to do a phenomenal cleaning job, I mix up a little white vinegar and veggie oil, dump it out on my sealed hardwood, and let this awesome little machine polish my floors with the very same cleaning brushes, and then clean up the excess for re-deployment in another room. Guess what? No nozzle problems, and zero streaks if you rinse the squeegee after every use.  Guess hoover should've included a common sense manual for those of you who wear your butts for hats. As for me, I'm off to go thrash swiffer for claiming that they "clean" anything.


Love it but could improve

Comments about Hoover FloorMate Deluxe Hard Floor Cleaner:

This is my 4th floormate in 10 years. I love the whole floomate concept but I think it still has room for improvements. The cord is short and I need to constantly change plugins. The location of the on/off butom should be higher, like the old model, so I don't have to keep on bending over every time I have to turn on/off. The water dripping/$leakinng madness it's off is kind of annoying. Still thiss little machine is powerful and cleans beautifully. Can't believe the color the water comes out of the dirt water container. Really can't live without this machine anymore. 


easy to use on tile

This hoover is the real ...

Comments about Hoover FloorMate Deluxe Hard Floor Cleaner:

This hoover is the real deal!!! can not believe I spent so much $$$ on other "floor mops". It is easy / fast to use &  light weight. I was so amazed the first time I used it, how much dirt was picked up. The other mops would just push the dirt around and make swirl marks. I have laminate & vynle floors after cleaning, the floors feel wonderful. Did I forget to mention we have 3 dogs & a cat. It removes their paw prints too. Can not say enough about this unit, you will not be disappointed!!!!!!! Great price point for level of happiness it has brought me.


A great flat surface cleaner that realy works!

Comments about Hoover FloorMate Deluxe Hard Floor Cleaner:

Had been looking for a good floor scrubber for a while. This is the best bare floor cleaner I have ever had. I had just moped my floors but gave them a couple of passes with the FloorMate and cannot believe how dirty the extracted water from my "just mopped" floors came out!

Bought the floor mate deluxe about 2 months ago. Have used it 3 times now power switch does not turn on the machine. Is this a piece of JUNK???

Comments about Hoover FloorMate Deluxe Hard Floor Cleaner:

I just got the Floormate Deluxe and I could not believe the easy handling. On top of that the dirt water was unbelievable. I am extremely happy - we ordered 2 cleaners one for the hardwood and one for the tiles. We have 2 longhair cats and I was extremely surprised how the cleaner handled - the hair was all in the dirt tank!!!!


When It Works

Comments about Hoover FloorMate Deluxe Hard Floor Cleaner:

I bought it 3 months ago and it worked twice.  It did a great job twice.  Now it won't dispense cleaning liquid, it only vacuums up.  Not my idea of a quality product.
