Posted by hoofbeats1 on Jul 01, 2008
My machine is a little more than a year old. I have used it about 5 times. It started leaking the third time I used it. The fourth time I took it out, the brushes would not spin (I did clean them and rinse them after use each time).
Now the engine screams and won't **** anything up. Do you have any suggestions? My last Hoover Steam Vac was great and lasted for 3 years! Hi,
I have a Hoover Dual V SteamVac F7425-900 that the brushes won't spin. The lint screen is clean & the brushes switch is in the on position.
It dispenses & sucks up the cleaning solution & water; just no brush action. Help


Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. The only thing that I can recommend is that you may have a bad switch, some vacs may have a broken belt or the drive mechanism inside the Hoover Dual V SteamVac F7425-900 in or by the brush assm section and is need of repair. Please check the trouble shooting section of the owner’s manual if you’re needing help and to save money. If you don’t have one then contact the Hoover factory cust serv. So, 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.

To help out here the hood has 6 screws on the underside of the machine and 2 post snaps at the rear of the hood. They pop out when lifting the rear of the hood. The air motor is as described above, 2 on bottom and 2 on top. When removed the air motor again has 2 screws on the cover of the gear set and a couple clips which come loose readily when the screws are removed. This exposes the gear set. Remove the gears and free the air motor shaft. Clean, lubricate and reassemble. You should be good to go. The Air motor is the only weak link in the machine. The bearings seize due to exposure as moist air is pulled through the air motor to drive the gear set. Great idea! Hoover should have used a stainless drive gear and bearings or a plastic bearing that would hold up to the RPM of the motor. Regardless, as is it will be plagued with the problem for the life of the machine unless you upgrade. Hoover may have solved this for all I know. Hint: The motor will not create any torque until the suction tank is in place. Oh, and keep the screen clean. That is the motor intake.

Greetings,

A few more things that you can try on your SteamVac. First remove the dirty water solution tank from the machine completely. You should see where the solution tank was just sitting, a plastic casing with a whole in it. This is actually where the suction from the motor goes into. Turn the machine on and feel the hole there for any suction coming out. Did you feel suction coming from the hole? If yes, then your issue is going to be something with the dirty solution tank, because without the tank it's sucking fine. If you didn't feel any suction from this hole, it may indicate that there is something more serious that needs to be taken care of.

One other place you may look on your machine (as long as the upholstery hose for stairs and furniture is already attached to the machine, and you don't have to hook anything up to the dirty water tank to use the attachments) while the dirty solution tank is out of it, is where the attachment hose makes connection with the vacuum. If you recline the handle down while you have the dirty water tank out, look in the back of the handle housing for a hose that enters the housing 3/4 down the housing. Now follow the hose on the inside of the handle not the outside, follow it up to the point where it goes into the neck, near where the suction hole is. Right at the end of the hose, right before the hose cuff, is this ripped, or damaged here?

Please feel free to request a clarification to this repair if you still need addtional help. If you can leave me the model number exactly that would help me help you, lol. I hope that this was helpful to you. If this was helpful to you, may you please click the helpful Thumbs Up Icon in the lower right hand corner of this repair?

Thank you so much,

Chris J.

Why does my Hoover F5906 Leaks from the bottom?


Water (cleaning solution) is gravity fed to the floor cleaning brushes, but the attachment hose is fed from a small pump. If it only leaks when turned on and operating, check the pump for leaks at the pump itself or the connecting hoses.

I have a Hoover V Steam Vac model F7412. The tank for the clean water and cleaner fluid leaked out the bottom. I purchased a new tank but something in that area is still leaking. I know it is not the...


My clean solution tank is leaking from the bottom, too. It is not a hose or a valve. The clean solution tank is leaking in-between the clear plastic walls of the solution tank & the grey plastic bottom that are connected, together. I was thinking of caulking it all around the bottom where the clear plastic sides join the grey bottom plastic. I can't get into ordering a new one (spending $) unless Hoover will send me a new one for free. Purchased at Kohl's in Massapequa, NY in June 2008. There's a one year warrantee AND the directions say to EMPTY the solution tank after each use. Which I normally do because the tank runs dry.

You can often find them on Ebay. Just look for Electrolux or Aerus Floor Pro brushes. You can probably also find them under Electrolux shampooer brushes.
You can purchase them from the Aerus site and they will ship to you: https://www3.aerusonline.com/Electrolux/index.asp
Or go to http://www.aerushome.com/storelocator/ and follow the directions for the dealer nearest you. If close enough you can pick them up at the store, they can deliver to your door, or they can ship if you live several miles away..

Hoover steam vac deluxe - no suction and the scrubbers aren't spinning uless you tilt off the floor.


I would suspect that your turbine assembly bearings need to be replaced. also check for debris inside the brush assembly. check the intake filter under the front clear cover. verify the recovery tank lid is on securely, as well as the foam filter on the tank lid is clean.

Hoover Steam Vac V2 Deep Cleaner leaking clean water


Fill the tank and determine if the plastic is leaking, or if the valves are leaking. if the tank is cracked, it would need replaced. There is an improved design now available.

You may cycle the valves on the bottom with the eraser end of a pencil.

My hoover carpet scrubber the brushes won


(1) Remove the brush block and assure the presence of the square drive pin on top of one brush. It should be about 1/4 inch square, two inches long to connect o the drive mechanism.

(2) Remove and clean the filter screen from the base, behind the brushes. Squeeze the two red tabs together, and pull down from the base. Clean the hiar/debris from the screen.

(3) Assure the Brush Speed knob on the hood is NOT set to the OFF position.
