SOURCE: brushes

This machine has no belts. There is an air driven turbine that propels the brushes. If you look under the little glass window at the left front corner of the machine, there is an intake screen just above the indicator dial. That screen is there to keep debris from entering the turbine and will have to be kept clean. If it is clogged, then the turbine will not function.It is also possible that moisture has entered the turbine and siezed the bearings. If that is the case, the turbine would have to be replaced. Also, because this turbine works off the suction of the motor, if the recovery tank lid is not on correctly, then the suction loss will effect the brushes. Check the lid and make sure it is on right.

SOURCE: hoover F7431-900

If the screen is not dirty, and the flapper valve to the turbine inlet is open, then the problem is mostly a stuck turbine impeller. The turbine impeller on my F7431-900 has seized TWICE!! The shaft for the turbine is not made of stainless steel, therefore is subject to corrosion. If you have a handy husband or boyfriend, give it to them, because some disassembly is required to access the turbine unit. After the turbine is removed and opened up, get some P'Blaster and squirt is on the shaft. P'Blaster is a rust removing solvent and is great for freeing up rusty nuts and bolts. Allow the P'Blaster 20-30 minutes to penetrate the corroded shaft. Then, grab the impeller and wiggle it back and forth, until free rotation is achieve. The last time my brushes stopped rotating, and I disassembled the turbine, it was really siezed up. I thought I was going to need to buy a new impeller assembly. But, that P'Blaster is really great stuff for breaking up corroded parts (it's like WD-40 on steroids!). I did need to give the turbine's impeller a good twist to free it up. If you can't get the turbine impeller to rotate, then buy a new one (about $27.00). Then, you can just install it and save a bundle on labor. I think I want to become a Hoover vacuum repairman. Their business must be booming because Hoover is putting out a poorly designed turbine unit. Boo, Hiss...... shame on Hoover for selling us **** like this.

PS You can get P'Blaster at any auto store, like Pep Boys, Autozone, etc.

SOURCE: the brush won't spin on my hoover shampooer

This machine has an airdriven turbine that drives the brushes. The turbine needs to be replace because it is spinning on a steel bushing which gets rusty from all the water going through it.

Brushes on bottom of hoover rug cleaner not spinning


The most common reason for this is that the air driven turbine has failed. To test it, insert a screwdriver into the square hole that the brush pin normally fits into and see if it turns. If it does not turn, the turbine assembly will need to be replaced. To prevent failure in the future, always store the shampooer with the upper tank removed, and squeeze the trigger to thoroughly empty the soap solution from the machine.

I have a Hoover SteamVac SpinScrub. The brushes


If the speed control switch on the hood is in the On position, it would appear the drive mechanism for the brushes is not spinning internally. The drive mechanism could easily be replaced by a technician.

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.
