open unit's bottem cover and look for the following: - Motor works - Belt which transfer motor's movment to the brushes, in place and not broken (most frequent phenomenon). - No mess on brushes axis which prevent their free movement. Good luck

Funny, lots of Hoover steamvacs seem to have this exact problem. I just fixed mine today and it was a problem with the turbine that spins the brushes. It took me a while to get to the part without breaking the plastic housing. If you have the patience, you should have no problem figuring it out. When I got to the turbine part, I opened it up and found that the metal disc at the end of the shaft was rusted and that no grease was ever applied. I took a metal brush, cleaned it up, greased the wheel, and then closed it back up. After putting it back together, it worked great. It almost looks like they don't grease this part on purpose so that it rusts and fails in order for you to spend more (buy parts, extended warranty, etc.). There's tons of grease on one of the other wheels that doesn't even need it. The product works great other than this. I've had mine for about 1 and 1/2 years and this is the first problem I've had with it.

Dear Xana,I have had problems like yours before. More times then not the roller brush "belt" got damaged and needed to be replaced.
You should also check your roller brush and make sure it was not knocked out of alignment.

If neither of these solutions help,then it could be, your roller brush "Bearing Assembly"got damaged which would mean you need to either replace the "Bearing Assembly" if it is removable and if you can find that part.Or else you would need to replace the whole "Roller Brush".

You can normally tell if the "Bearing Assembly" is damaged by trying to turn the roller brush with your hands,if it takes a lot of force to make it turn,then theirs a good chance it was damaged!

These repairs are fairly easy to do, just read your Vacuum manual on replacing parts,also make sure you always have the vacuum unplugged while replacing parts or doing repairs.

I hope this info helps,EarlsOK

Either the brush rolls are bad, at the ends, or the gear/motor asm. is bad.

You can try thehooverstore.com, or call a repair shop and I am sure they can order for you. Doubt that you will find a (#56511A01)manual tho. The hose part #43434268 and will sell for around $15 to $20. Dusting brush #43414145 $8 to $10. Extentsion tube #38634678 about $5. Furniture nozzle #38614029 about $5. Crevice tool #38617024 about about $5. Hope this helps.

What is causing the beater bar brush to spin extremely fast?


HI, it's Jim from Crucial Vacuum!

First thing is to be sure to unplug your vacuum. Once you begin smelling a burning smell it's essential to stop vacuuming immediately.

One of two things may be happing here:

1) Your brush roll may need replacing. It's possible that the sides where it attaches to the vacuum have been worn down with age. The bristles falling off is a clear indicator that it's time to replace the brush roll. Also, look for debris, or hair that's wrapped around the brush. Remove all of this with either a razor, or a scissor.

2) Check your vacuums belt. Is it wrapped around the brush roll at all, or is too loose? If so, this means there's no tension around your brush roll and it could be causing your vacuum to overwork the motor and overheat, hence the smell.

Clean this area out and then replace the brush roll and belt. You should be seeing a noticeable difference in both your vacuums suction, and a lack in the burning smell.

The spin brushes on my hoover steam And vac don't


Either the pin on the brushes that attaches to the motor shaft is broken, or the motor is dead. Did you check the switch on the front of the unit to make sure it wasn't turned off?

Burshes will not spin, filter is clean


Drive belt missing or not properly installed on motor or brush/beater? Perhaps foreign matter caught in ends of beater brush that are holding the brush tightly in place. Clean the debris away and hit with a little WD40, but not much. Make sure it turns freely by hand prior to putting it back into place. If the belt is loose, make sure it is replaced with the proper belt and installed correctly.

Hoover Empower Widepath, brush won't spin.


The belt needs to be changed, it's probably spinning in place which is causing the smell (burnt rubber).

Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure.
There are 2 types of Turbo Brushes, the electric type driven by a power head or power nozzle most likely used on a canister type vacuum or a central vacuum driven by electricity and there is an air driven power head. In either case the belt should be riding on the brushroll pulley on the end or if it is an air driven power head, sometimes the pulley section is in the middle, and the other end would run off the motor pulley / shaft. If you have a flat belt it is suggested that you change the belt every 4 to 6 months, if you have a geared belt, suggested change would be one year or so. I am not sure on the Brand of turbo brush you have, but you can refer to your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or the yellow pages, or contact the manufacturer for a phone # or website address, some times if you have a air driven turbo power brush it may be cost efficient to replace the brush instead of repairing the turbo brush. Just a suggestion.
Example: www.turbobrush.com – this may or may not be the website address not knowing the brand name.
Thanks, Don – The Vac Man
Go Ahead. Use Us.

Motor not turning


Don't forget, the agitator bursh doesn't work when the vacuum is upright. Maybe that is your problem.
