Spin bruches don't touch floor.

Just purchased Hoover 3030. Easy assembly. Noticed that the spin bruches were not even touching or scrubbing floor. They were rotating in the air. Checked connection, took it apart and reinstalled. Same problem. Please help, Thank you!

Re: Spin bruches don't touch floor.

It seems to be a common problem with this series of floormate... some home quickfixes (a hassle, i kno) but put downward pressure while using the solution.... Check your warranty that came with it, and how long you purchased the floormate... Alot of vaccuums come with 30-90 warranties, I'd recommend having it checked out. That, or if u bought it recent enough,take it back... like i said, these models are unfortunately known to have this problem... Some people have ones that operate normally, but alot do not. >.<

How do I hook up the upholstery attachment on a Hoover Spin Scrub 50?

To connect the upholstery tool, first remove the clean water tank by pressing down on the handle and pulling the tank forward. Remove the hose from the storage rack. Press down on the handle release lever and lower the handle to the ground. Unlatch the back part of dirty water tank and remove the lid. Pull the dirty water tank's front panel up about an inch and rotate the panel to parallel with the floor. Replace the panel with the converter and slide it halfway down until it is firmly in place. Pull the collar on the connecting tube towards the tube so that the black tabs are fully extended. Open the door on the hood labeled Stair/Upholstery cleaning connection and press the round solution tube onto the round projection. Press the collar firmly to ensure that the tube is connected. Replace the tank in a hinge-like manner and place the lid under the tabs on the front of the tank. Rotate the lid down onto the tank.

Now slide the upholstery tool on the connector of the hose until the tab locks into place.

The manual for the Spin Scrub 50 is available on the Hoover product page: . The direct link to the manual is . The directions are on page 14-15.

I hope this helps.

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.

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.

Does the Hoover F5835-900 have spin scrub brushes?

Brushes don't spin

Hello :
try this please : switch the carpet/bare floor dial back & forth 5 times, ending on carpet. Tilt the handle back as if to vacuum upright & lay the vacuum on its side so it is resting on the side opposite the carpet/bare floor dial. Turn the vacuum on.
or try this also if the above suggestion didn't work :
Maybe the belt is broke. You will have to replace the belt before the roller can spin. You must have run over something in the carpeting like string or whatever to have it break. Happens all the time. Get several replacement belts to keep as spares while you're at it as nothing is worse then having to vacuum and no spare belts.
please rate !

The spin scrub brushes do not spin.

Try this: Make sure the setting is set to floor, then remove the little window (you might need a flat screwdriver to "pry" it up) and clean off the filter. If there is a blockage, the brushes will not spin! I hope this helps, if so, please give feedback when asked. Thanks, Rene(the VAcuum Doctor)
