Question about Hoover F7425-900 SteamVac V2 Widepath Upright Vacuum

1 Answer

Hoover F7425-900 won't run at all.

When you turn the power on the pump in the lower handle unit buzzes and nothing else happens. The motor does not come on and the brushes don't turn either. Ideas?

Yes you have a bad motor and possibly bad turbine. I have never done this but have read success stories with opening the turbine and spray it with WD40 and spin it to get it going as it gets rusted and jams. I prefer to replace it rather than a quick fix. The motor must be replaced as well and will cost you probably 100 between the both of them, give or take 20 bucks. You will also need the seal for the motor. You can get all these parts through sears. The link is below. I also gave you the reference numbers for sears so you can just click which ones you want rather than search the schematic.

Part numbers:
Turbine 91001097 #23 not #23a
Motor 27212077 #17
Seal 38781074 #21

Hoover Wind Tunnel Bagless problem with carpet hight adjustment


Hi There Alec from VacuumSpot here.
Most of these machines don't actually change the height until the handle is lowered so even though you change the dial when it is an upright position it is not until you lower the handle that the height is actually selected. Assuming that you are aware of this and it is still not adjusting I would suspect you have a small arm or lever broken. It is very rare for a height selector to simply fall out of place.The job would take 5 minutes in my opinion so it is simple but a bit fiddly.

Hoover spirit 900 canister wont turn on?


see this causes and fix it. God bless you
If the vacuum cleaner motor does not run the motor itself might be burned out. Check the power switch first to be sure the motor can get power. Then, be sure the motor shaft can turn freely, that nothing is obstructing it. If the motor can turn freely and is getting power but still won't run it will need to be replaced
If the vacuum cleaner motor doesn't run the on - off switch might be turned off or defective. Test the switch with an Ohm meter or continuity checker.

(1) take the tank off and reassemble to assure you sealed to the lower handle.

Hoover steam vac


I had the same problem just before the impeller broke. Lower the handle and check the hose connection at the bottom is not broken. Turn the unit on with the handle down, then check the suction on the accessory hose, leae it disconnected. Take off the bottom container, and check the suction on the round intake tube (lower one towards the front), with the handle up and with the handle down. If the suction increases dramatically when the handle is lowered, the impeller is probably in it's self-destruct stage. (same as mine). Soon the impeller will break off, and BINGO no suction at all.

Good luck!
