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.

Hoover F7458-900 SteamVac The brushes quit


My Hoover F7458-900 was doing the same thing, brushes not turning and since it is about 7 years old and out of warrenty I decided I had nothing to lose so I took it apart after reading all the other posts on this problem. The brushes are actually turned by a turbine motor (no belts involved) that runs off air produced by the vaccum motor of the unit. The air turns a metal spindle that then turns several nylon gears in the turbin the last of which turns the brushes. The nylon gear that engages with the metal spindle was worn down to the point that it was no longer engaging with it and thus not turning.
The only fix for this problem is to buy a new turbin motor which is not that expensive about $34 plus shipping since they don't sell just the nylon gear. Hope this helps

Brush bar is not turning when I turn on my dison vacum


Hi There,

The Dyson DC15 All floors is actually a 2 motor upright, meaning the suction motor is separate from the motor that rotates the brushes. The first thing you should check is the reset switch on the brushes. Behind the brushes there is a little red pole, push this down to reset the brushes, and see if this fixes the problem.

If not, then you may have a bad on/off switch for the roller brushes. Try pushing the switch next to the main on/off switch that controls the brushes up and down, up and down, can you hear the brushes attempt to come on at all? If you could hear them come on even somewhat, this means that your brush on/off switch is bad and needs to be replaced.

If nothing happens when you push this switch, it still may be bad and not getting any power at all to it.

Does the machine make any sound at all when you try to turn the brush switch on and off?

Please try pushing the reset switch, then testing the on/off switch first. If neither one of these solutions works, please just use the comment field on the repair and let me know, and I can then walk you through some more advanced diagnosing of your machine.

Thanks,

Chris Jones

Power just 'clicks' doesn't turn on.


The motor could be burned out or you have a carbon brush in the motor that is stuck. The motor will need to be taken out and tested on its' own. A electric motor company can test it for you or a Vacuum Shop.

I own a Hoover Steam Vac Plus w/ Rotating Brushes (model#F5871-900), when I turn on the power I hear a medium-loud hum coming from the motor area and nothing works. What could be the issue?


the motor sounds locked up. Water gets in there and rusts the pieces together. The motor could be replaced, but probably not repaired.

if the motor doesn't run sounds like you either have a bad motor or your motor armature might have gotten wet and created a dead spot.if you have any contact cleaner spray a little on the armature then turn the motor by hand make sure its uuplugged first if you can turn the motor then plug it in and try to start it

I have a Hoover WindTunnel Farrington Upright Model U6431-900
it has worked flawlessly until last week. The roller brush has stopped turning and I believe it is the belt that has broken but I am not sure how to remove the cover to inspect it and replace the belt if that is the problem. Please inform me how to perform the operation and what I should I look for? Is there a site with a diagram on how to replace said parts? Thanks for any and all helpful info that you can supply me with. Larry

Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. Normally there are either screws, clips or levers that would remove the bottom plate or id that does not work then the top cover will come off and that will expose the belt. Once that is off and the belt is exposed then cut off the old belt and then lift up the brushroll on the pulley end and install the new belt around the pulley end and re-install the brushroll. Then use a belt puller or a screwdriver with a bent right or left end to stretch the belt onto the motor pulley and then track the belt in a straight line and reverse you steps in the reinstall of the top cover or bottom plate. So if you need further assistance, please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or in the yellow pages, or contact the factory phone number or website to further assist you with your questions.

Hose buckling/crumpling when hoover is turned on

Hose buckling/crumpling when Hoover is turned on
Posted by mildwarthog on May 08, 2008
Hi - I'm having a problem when I turn my Dyson DC07 on, that the suction is causing the hose to buckle/crumple out of shape which then means I can’t Hoover through the hose. After a short while the motor starts to overheat from trying to maintain suction through the crumpled hose is it simply time to buy a new hose, or is there anything else I can do to fix this problem?

Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure.
Dyson DC07 All Floors Bagless Upright
Once you hose starts to breakdown there is really nothing you can do other than replacing the hose. This is true on almost every vacuum on the market because they are using in most case the plastic hose and the heat and the product you pickup breaks down the hose and starts to lose its strength and starts to collapse. You may want to check with your local vac dealer to see if he has a new one or a good used one for ½ the price. So if you need further assistance, please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or in the yellow pages, or contact the factory phone number or website to further assist you with your questions.
