There is a plastic shaft on the back of the block brush (spin scrubbers), these wear out or break. You may need to replace the block brush. Or if the shaft is not broken it could also be the Turbine Gear. This is what the block brush shaft goes into. You can get access to it by taking off the hood. You can find the parts and a schematic below follow the link. Please don't forget to give positive feedback.

    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. You can find a genuine hoover replacement part by following the link

Hoover SteamVac brushes aren't turning ...

Sometimes this speed knob can be really stuck on there. Even if you were to break off the part that the knob sits onto, this part is actually part of the turbine assembly, and the new turbine assembly would have that prong that the button sits on.

As long as you have the screwdriver underneath of the knob, I wouldn't worry to much about putting too much pressure on it.

Let me know if you still have any questions, I'll be happy to help you figure it out.

If you found this helpful, please be so kind to rate the repair that I wrote, or leave feedback.

Hoover F7220900 Brushes don't turn

First off make sure that the filter inside the dirty water tank has a gap from the top of the cover to the top of the filter. The must comment problem when the brushes dom't turn is either the brush block, the shaft that goes into the turbinge broke off. If brush block is ok, then the turbine is bad and will have to be replaced.

Before you take it back, check the filter inside the lid of the recovery tank, if it is all of the way to the top, it will cause problems, it needs a 1/4 in. gap from the top. Might be also that the plunger in the handle is pushing all of the way down so as to release the water.
