There is no belt, sounds like the turbine is bad and will have to replaced.

Hover f7458-400 carpet cleaner brushes wont turn

Based on the hints above I cleaned the filter as it was clogged. That did not fix it. Then I took a stout screw driver and used it to turn the square brush drive, The drive broke loose and I am in operation with no dis-assembly. Hooray!

Where is the belt on a hoover agility?? My brushes stopped spinning and I think that the belt broke but I cannot find it

If you have the manual it should show the location of the screws or clips that hold the cover on for the belt.

Brushes won't roate

(1) Assure the Brush Control on the hood is NOT set to the OFF position.
(2) Remove the brush assembly by pulling/unlatching it from base on each side.
(3) Does one of the brushes have the drive pin present? It should be about ¼ inch square, and two inches long. It attaches the brushes to the drive mechanism.
(4) Remove and clean the intake filter. One the base of the cleaner, behind the brushes, squeeze the two red abs together and pull the panel down to access the screen. Clean the hair/debris off the screen and reassemble.

Brushes don't spin

Remove the bottom cover and replace the broken drive belt. Check that the brush will rotate freely--likely everything is jammed with hair and dust. The brush assembly should just lift out of the case and the end bearings will pull off. The brush needs to be removed to install a new belt anyway. There should be a diagram that shows how to install the belt (it has a half-turn twist).

Brushes do not spin on my steam vac

Take the brush block out and see if the brushes turn of, if not replace the brush block. Otherwise it is the turbine(#23) that has to be replaced, sometimes you can take the turbine apart and clean it. The top cover has to come off, turn it over, take out the brush block, take out the screws under that, there are other screws, under where the turbine sits, there are 2 longer screws, if you don't have them out, then you missed them, there 2 screws on the front end of the turbine, unhook the koses and it will come off.

I don't believe there is a belt, check the brush block and make sure that the shaft isn't broken off, if ok, then the turbine is bad and will have to be replaced.
