Question about Hoover Steam Vac Dual V w/ SpinScrub Vacuum
My 2 year old Hoover Steam Dual Vac Model # F7425-900 do not rotate. I have cleaned out the lint trap at the bottom of the machine as recommended. Any suggestions and if so where can I find a diagram on how to fix it.
The brushes are all connected to a single shaft. This square shaft is connected to 2 sets of gears and then another shaft which is turned by an impeller (suction from the vaccum pump is used to turn the impell and thus the brushes). There are 2 bearings that the impeller shaft turns on. It's likely these are rusted up and just need a bit of WD 40. Took me 30 min to take apart, lube, and put back together. Remember, its plastic. If things won't come apart, look for another screw. Mine was a brand new unit and the top bearing was rusted.

If you cant spin the brush by hand then you have a bad turbine.

When I took it back to a Hoover repair service they replaced the turbine (under warranty as it was replaced in March 08, this happeded in my prev post). My theory is that the turbine gets water blow by from the waste tank, you can see foam entering the screen area. I found that emptying the waste bucket more often was the solution. I didn't wait until it shut off suction. I think the float needs to be redesigned to a ball in a cage as my Craftsman shop vac has which works well.
