Hoover spin scrub bristles not spinning

I have a hoover that spins and scrubs. The four brushes do not spin. I have the idea that the "turbine" is air powered because I see no connection to the motor. All I see are two white hoses connected to the "turbine" housing. Could the hoses be clogged or the gears locked? I could be mistaken about the air power. Please educate me. (I opened the turbine up and added more grease thinking it might help the brushes turn more freely. They now don't turn at all). Thank You

    How do I remove the hose from the back of the brush roll part? It has a clog.

Hey, I am wondering is anyone watching over this site. I have seen many questions about brushes not spinning on the hoover vacs but now response except one back in April that said something about taking the bottom over off and checking something but the person wrote back asking how to take off the cover and got now response. I also can't figure out how to get the cover off. Mine is the F5906-900

I have had two of these... both broken. The handle and tank on one and this one today seems to have lost a belt or gear between the brushes and the motor. The brush assembly seems to spin as it should by hand. Slight tension from pushing what sounds like some gears around. Can't open it up to see whats in there but my guess is a belt between the motor and gears on the brushes. But no entry equals trash. My origonal idea of buying the same unit for spare parts has become a waste of time, money and effort. I wonder if Dyson has jumped into this market yet?

My hoover spin scrub has no suction wont pick up water why?


No suction means somewhere in the intake side of the system you have either a blockage or an air leak.

Why it won't pick up water?


Make sure the switch is on the setting you are using, I.E. spin scrub. If this isn't the problem you may have a bad turbine blade, if the scrubber brushes aren't turning that is your problem. $45, a screw driver and general mech. abillities will fix it. http://www.vacpartswarehouse.com

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.

The scrub brushes dont spin anymore


The brushes are turning by an air driven turbine. The turbine has a pivot bushing made of steel inside of it that gets rusty because of the water that is running through it. The turbine gear will have to be replaced. You can access the turbine gear by removing the hood. You can find a genuine hoover replacement part by following the link below. Just find the model number of your Steamvac.

Hoover Steam Vac Spin Scrub


Remove the brush block, is the shaft on it or broken off. Replace the block if broken off. Turn unit over, with brush block removed, handle tilted back, is the square hole turning, if not then the turbine is bad, this is what turns the brushes.

Belt replacement Hoover carpet cleaner


Hoover steamvacs don't use belts. If the brushes are not turning, pull the brush block out, turn the machine on and see if the square hole where the brush block was, is turning. If not then the turbine is bad. Sometimes you can take the turbine apart and clean it out. most times I have found , replace it.

Hoover Spin Scrub model # F7410-900. The brushes will not spin.


Take the brush block out, is the shaft still on it or did it break off, if it broke off, then replace the brush block. If it is there and you can turn the brushes by hand, then the turbine is bad. Sometimes you can clean it out, most time you have to replace it.

Spin Scrub Brushes won't turn


If the brushes quit spinning, either the brush block shaft that goes into the turbine broke off, or the turbine is bad. This unit is tricky to take apart and then put back together again. But pull the brush asm off, then start taking out screws. But if after you pull off the brush block, look up where you will see a small square hole, turn unit on and if not turning, usually the turbine is the cause and will have to be replaced.
