Question about Hoover F5888-900 SteamVac Upright Wet/Dry Vacuum

Open Question

Replace motor on Hoover Steam Vac F5888-900

Hello,

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!

thanks.
Shawn

Sounds like the pump or turbine (part #43582004) isn't working. Could also have a problem with the trigger asembly.

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


Hello,
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.

Spinbrush is very loud, barely sprays, spraks flew out the side. It is only 6 months old.


Hope you kept your receipt! That's a warranty item. Your motor is making the sparks. Go to hoovers website find the nearest service center and take the machine and your receipt to them. You'll get a new motor, installed, at no charge because they have a 1 year warranty.

make sure that you have filled everthing properly and the hoover steam is in a good condition. or check else is there any loose coonections in the bottom of the hoover, which makes the tank empty.

Hoover steam vac dual v makes humming noise and nothing else.


Is the overfill valve (the yellow thing) in the waste container stuck in the up/full position? Maybe it just needs to be rinses welll to avoid it being stuck and shutting off the vacuum portion of the cleaner.

Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. It sounds to me like you have multiple problems with your power drive; a burning smell and the brushes don’t turn, and the dop is on March, 2008 – the Hoover Steam Vac Shampooer has a one year factory warranty and it could be a broken part for the brushes won’t turn or a belt would cause the burning smell. If it is not the belt or broken part it probably is the motor of which you should take it to a authorized Hoover vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or to contact the Hoover factory cust serv listed below or the Hoover website for information. If it is the motor the factory authorized dealer will replace the part for the motor and the broken part for the brushes, if it is the belt that would be an out of pocket expense. So if you need further assistance, 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.

Belt on steam vac v2


The V2 doesn't use a belt, it uses a turbine to drive the brush block, If brushes are not turning, either the shaft on the brush block broke off, or the turbine is bad and will have to be replaced.
