    Brushes only spin slowly when the base is raised. As soon as in contact with carpet, quit spinning.



    Loaned to my ex (pressure from daughter) and the unit is filthy. Think the brushes maybe clogged up.



    How to disassemble the brushes?

I clean mine with a chopstick. *shrugs* No way that we can see to take it all apart. Did you clean the filter thing right next to the brushes? hoover.com has manuals to everything they sell unless it's reaaaaaly old. :-)

My hoover F5515 was working fine but when I pulled out the tsnk to remove dirty water and place it back and turned it on, brushes stop rolling.


Hello Sonny! If the dirty water tank is not put back on securely it will prevent brushes from spinning. Take off the dirty water tank and replace it making sure it locks onto the cleaner and is flush. Now check your brushes for obstructions. Remove all hair and debris from the brushes. If the brushes still will not spin take your cleaner into a Hoover authorized service center for repair. Follow the link to locate the nearest service center in your area. Hope this was helpful!

My brushes on my Hoover Steam Vac stopped spinning again! I took the brushes out and they turn fine, but when inserted back into the base, they do not turn, AGAIN! Anyone know what the problem is and...


Tip is slightly, do the brushes spin then? If so, then the brushes are air driven. By the spin indicator at the front of the machine, you'll see a small screen (same type of thing as is in your dryer), scrape it, you'll probably find there's a build-up of fluff. Clean off the fluff, and try again.

I have cleaned & cleaned this thing! It runs for about 2 mins & stops, says "Clean Brushes"! and now it's very noticeable it's not picking up well... but is picking up a bit. I take the dust bin...


Ok, this is a "Brush Height Adjustment" issue. It will probably work great on a hard surface but on carpet the brushes bog. If you've taken the unit apart already...Sorry....do it again. When you do, you'll see a String which allows the brushes to "Float" on different surface heights. Loosen the screw a little and pull a bit more string through. Re Tighten the screw and put it together enough for a test run. Now reset the roomba.To reset the Roomba, power the Roomba on, and press the Spot, and Dock buttons together for at least 8 seconds. Until it plays a tune. The clock, and any schedule is erased at this time. Try running the Roomba with the dust bin removed to see the brushes spin easier.

Second method, is taking off the bottom cover, and removing the battery. While it's removed, and not plugged into the charger, press the clean button for at least 20 seconds. This will erase the memory. Replace battery, and cover. Run the Roomba to see if the brushes start to spin. You can also remove the brush housing by removing the 4 screws and reseating it, to see if it was a bad connection, since you have the bottom cover off.

The reason for the brushes to stop when it is above any surface is there is a switch in the handle that stops the brushes so it dont burn your motor up it may have a faulty switch.

Beaters stop when vaccuming rug...didn't when new


I believe you need to change the belt that drives the brushes. When it gets stretched out, it will just spin on the axle of the motor or spin on the brush and smoke.

Brushes won't spin on hoover steam vac ls


I have the SteamVac Dual and there's a screen on the underside of the unit. It's beneath the brushes and it's red. You have to pull and wiggle it to get it out. With the machine unplugged, lay the unit with the handle on the floor. In the owner's manual ( http://www.hoover.com/pdfs/manuals/F7222900.pdf ) this is shown on page 10 figure 3-2. Clean that screen.
If they still won't spin, then take the brushes out. Again, with the unit on the floor, you simply grab the unit firmly and pull towards you. It's much easier to remove than the screen. I took the brush unit outside and blasted it with the house. You'll have to pull out whatever fur balls are clogging it but eventually you'll see that the brushes spin freely with the water squirting on them. Plug the brush unit back in and - in my case - they started spinning.

Brushes not spinning....


My status light came on, the vac beeped twice and stopped. I noticed my brushes weren't spinning. I took an eyeglass screwdriver and took off the center screw that holds on the brushes. I cleaned the shaft that the brushes spin on. replaced brushes and it works great! I just did this now and it is still running. my status light problem is fixed my roomba is 4 years old and I am on my 2nd battery. Seems to have fixed the problem. FYI it was wrapped with hair, dirt and it was greasy.
