Question about Hoover Vacuums

1 Answer

I have a Hoover SteamVac LS (several years old). I turned it on today and heard slight pop and then an off smell, not a burning smell though. Then after a few more minutes of operation, the SteamVac lost power and now it will not work.

You should check the cord for any burnt marks or cuts, especially the plug, if you don't see any thing it is probably a bad motor.

Burning smell and noise from vacuum


The roller head may be turning, but something could be rubbing and causing the belt to slip slightly. I'd remove the belt and beater bar and look for foreign material that is stuck

Hoover F7458-900 SteamVac The brushes quit


My Hoover F7458-900 was doing the same thing, brushes not turning and since it is about 7 years old and out of warrenty I decided I had nothing to lose so I took it apart after reading all the other posts on this problem. The brushes are actually turned by a turbine motor (no belts involved) that runs off air produced by the vaccum motor of the unit. The air turns a metal spindle that then turns several nylon gears in the turbin the last of which turns the brushes. The nylon gear that engages with the metal spindle was worn down to the point that it was no longer engaging with it and thus not turning.
The only fix for this problem is to buy a new turbin motor which is not that expensive about $34 plus shipping since they don't sell just the nylon gear. Hope this helps

Burning smells from the bottom on my SteamVac Widepath LS. How can I open it to check the belt? do you have a diagram? Thanks


that model doesnt have a belt, it has a gearbox that runs the brushes. if you are getting a burning smell its probably the motor going bad. how old is the machine? i can give you a diagram if you want to attempt to replace the motor or would just like to have it. Let me know and ill upload it to my adrive account and give you the link.

(1) take the tank off and reassemble to assure you sealed to the lower handle.
(2) the water feed has nothing to do with the motor or electrical, purely mechanical.

Machine wont turn on


Either the motor is fried or the belt is burnt. If you can't hear it turn on, then check for any fuses that could have blown. They will be glass tube type. If fuse is good, motor or power supply could be bad. You can test them with voltmeter.

My hoover dual v steamvac make loud noise and sparks


Be careful. This could be a shorted wire inside where the motor is. If there is sparks , something is exposed and touching. The motor also may be ready to give out. Unless your daring enough to open the whole thing up I would bring it to a shop or replace it.
