Question about Hoover F5891-900 Steam Cleaner
It starts to let off a burning smell just after a couple minutes of turning it on then it starts to smoke out of the two holes on top of the motor housing once I turn it off. I took the motor housing off and the fan seems to run well but the motor gets hot in just a minute or so. Also, when I lifted the motor up I noticed the the plastic bottom where the motor was sitting had been scraped from the piece of metal that rotates with the fan rotation. I've tried cleaning the filter and lubing moving parts. Is this repairable? If not, is it worth replacing the motor and about how much do motors go for? Thanks!

These motors have a fuse incorporated in the field winding and it sounds like that blew. These motors sometimes overheat at the front bearing and the bearing will melt into the plastic housing. This will cause the fuse to blow. It sounds like that's your problem. You can remove the motor by removing the three screws on the bottom of the powerhead and then check the front bearing for any bubbling or blistering in the plastic housing. The shaft of the motor should turn easily.

Turbine assembly is bad. Get part #23 here http://www.vacuumcleanershop.com/hvrmdlf7205900.htm#B2
Not to bad to put in.
You can also find them on Ebay cheaper.

SOURCE: carpet setting not working
there is a belt in the nozzle that is driven by a small motor in turn will drive the roller when set to carpet. did you completely dis-assemble the nozzle? ie, to remove the roller and clean the endcaps? this would also show the belt. The gear on the motor wears very easily and could also be worn. I would change the nozzle or get a new Flair. new nozzles cost about $25-$30.
