20 Most Recent Hoover F7429-900 Upright Steam Cleaner Questions & Answers


OK usually the brush will not turn as it gets locked up by the fibers in the stuff sucked up, usually one has to disassemble the head, or some other way, free up all the stuff tangling the brush, on the shaft, and stopping it from turning. I usually use a sharp knife or scissors, etc, to cut and hack carefully away this stuff that clogs it up, I usually have the vacuum on when I do this and the stuff removed simply get sucked up as i do it. it doesn't take much to stop them, just look carefully inside the head and you should see what i mean.
Hope this helps?

With unit disconnected from all power connect the multi tester to the two terminals on switch after putting the tester in the resistance mode. Flick the switch and see if you get continuity and break continuity condition. If you do the switch is good and your issue is elsewhere.

The battery itself has a release...
activated by gently lifting.

Run your finger over the top and as you go over the bottom edge you will feel a cavity...GENTLY LIFT WITH INDEX FINGER...

There are a lot of places that it could be leaking. The most common is a valve under the hood.you will have to put water in it and watch and inspect to trace where it is leaking.
