Question about Hoover F5888-900 SteamVac Upright Wet/Dry Vacuum
My Vac is about 4 years old and tonight the motor started sounding bad, I know this sound. While benching the unit after a good cleaning to examine the motor but it's in there pretty deep. I noted sparks shooting from the motor through the vacuum port while on the bench and shut it down. Looks like it's time to find a motor.
I saw you had schematics but have you to determine a part number. This unit was a gift from my father (Hoover employee retired) and was surpised to find it now only retails for $160, so wondering if a motor replace is reasonable cost for just replace the unit.
I'm a solid DIY'r so nothing scares me!
my f5809 2-3 yrs old just started not sucking the water up (wouldn't yu know it after i just lent it to my mother in law) i went over to look at it and found the rubber gasket in the recovery tank between where the water comes up and into the lid had @1/4 " piece torn out. i stuck a piese of newspaper (tempory patch) between the gasket and lid, locking the 'patch' in place and it sucks again. i found this site while looking for a replacement gasket. maybe you have the same problem

Hoover Steam Vac Spin Scrub Carpet Cleaner won't...
Posted by hoofbeats1 on Jul 01, 2008
My machine is a little more than a year old. I have used it about 5 times. It started leaking the third time I used it. The fourth time I took it out, the brushes would not spin (I did clean them and rinse them after use each time).
Now the engine screams and won't **** anything up. Do you have any suggestions? My last Hoover Steam Vac was great and lasted for 3 years! Hi,
I have a Hoover Dual V SteamVac F7425-900 that the brushes won't spin. The lint screen is clean & the brushes switch is in the on position.
It dispenses & sucks up the cleaning solution & water; just no brush action. Help
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. The only thing that I can recommend is that you may have a bad switch, some vacs may have a broken belt or the drive mechanism inside the Hoover Dual V SteamVac F7425-900 in or by the brush assm section and is need of repair. Please check the trouble shooting section of the owner’s manual if you’re needing help and to save money. If you don’t have one then contact the Hoover factory cust serv. So, please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or in the yellow pages, or contact the factory phone number or website to further assist you with your questions.
