Hey, I just fixed mine!! check out this fix posted previously. The filter mentioned is a wire mesh filter & I used a flathead screw driver to scrape out the dog hair.

"Turned out to be so simple. Look down at the machine. On the right is the green spiral to indicate the wheels are turning. Right above that is a cover that can be popped off to allow access to a small filter. If the filter is blocked, air intake is blocked, and the brushes will not turn. Mine was clogged. Took the 2 seconds to remove the material and the machine was fixed!"

How to replace belt on hoover SH40060 SWEEPER


Remove the screws from the bottom of the power nozzle so you can remove the cover to gain access to the belt. Remove the brush roll, pull the end caps off the brush roll if possible to clean out hair and debris. Make sure brush roll will spin freely. Install new belt and reassemble.

Hoover F7410-900 Steam Vac Dual V scrub brushes not working


If the brushes will to spin when you try to turn them by hand remove them from the machine. If the brushes spin ok after removing them the the turbine assembly is seized up and will likely need replaced. If the brushes won't spin when they are removed from machine take the plastic cover off the brushes and clean out the gears.

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).

Bottom on the vaccum the spin brush will not spin at all


Double check for anything that might be holding it from spinning (shoe lace, string, hair, ribbon, etc)

If the brushes are free to move by hand, you most likely have either a broken belt or a belt that simply came off the motor. What you'll need to do in either case, is open up the vacuum cover. The screws are usually located at the bottom of the vacuum (where the brushes are) and remove all the visible screws you see.

Most of the time (being that I don't know what kind of vac you have, that is enough to remove the top cover off for you to inspect either the motor or the belt which attaches to the motor. I know on my hoover, the belt slips off very easily, so I always need to keep my screwdriver handy to perform this.

Hope this helps.

Brushes don't spin


Take out the screws from the bottom, there will 2 longer ones, they got into the turbine, turn it upright and take the top cover off. The turbine sits near the front, center, remove the 2 screws on the front of it, remove the hoses, then you can remove the turbine(#23).

Roller brush isn't spinning


Depending on which powerhead this is, if you removed the light cover, then removed the 2 screws, from the bottom edge, you will see a slot where you can insert a flat blade and pry out to release the tab, there is one on each side. If this one where the 2 screws are removed form the bottom, then there are 4 locking tabs, 2 on the back and one on each side.
