"I did some research online and the recurrent theme was a bad turbine assembly. Fortunately I was able to fix this myself which took about 2 hours (some reading) and little effort. The problem was with the turbine which is fairly simple and had a bearing that had rusted and froze up. Removing the cover proved to be more difficult than fixing the stuck bearing. This was mostly due to figuring out the correct screws to remove and finally discovering that the back of the cover (over the wheels) is not secured by fasteners but by pegs that "pop" out.

Once I had the brush assembly and Cover removed the turbine came out with the removal of some obvious screws and gently pulling the hoses from the assembly. After carefully opening the assembly housing I discovered the bearing problem and with a little lubrication and some new grease had it working in short order. Putting everything back together was simple as well."


this worked for me. although once i got in i just had to mess around with the gears and loosen them up. getting in was the hard part soo here you go peoples.

take off tanks

unscrew 6 screws fom underneath machine. look carefully

just underneath where the dirty tank goes right by the part that sucks everything up is a screw. unscrew it

pop off the switch for your spin scrub mode. it pops right back on.

make sure your locks for the tank are turned in

then the back just pops off. you might have to give it a good tug. there are no screws although it maight look like there is.

then pull off the grey part.

once inside it is pretty easy.

but if you have any questionbs email at lostnhisblueyes@aol.com

i took off so many more screws than i needed to to get this figured out so dont do that.

SOURCE: hoover steam vac model f7425-900 filter is

The brush system on this model has a poor engineering design in that the brushes are running off an air turbine, which uses a steel bushing to spin the turbine which gets rusty from the moisture when the machine is being used. No long term solver. I would replace the machine with a Dirt Devil Platinum Force model

The Hoover SteamVac's are notorious for this exact problem. There are several things that can be causing this problem.

First, what you'll need to do is take the brush block out of the machine. To do this there are 4 clips on the brush block. You will need to turn the machine upside down, and pull down on the brush block to where it won't pull out any farther. There are 4 clips, 2 on front, and 2 in the rear. (See picture, I have circled one of the clips in red). Simply press these clips at the same time, and pull the brush block out of the machine. I'd say that 60% of the time that I see this problem, the main issue is that the brushes just need to be cleaned. If you have pets in the home, a lot of the time the pet hair will just be lodged inside the brushes, will prevent them from spinning. Use a pressurized water hose *(one with a spray nozzle is ideal) and spray each brush with water to dislodge any pet hair. You should be able to get these brushes spinning when you spray them. Spray each brush until the brushes are spinning pretty fast. Re-insert the brushes into the machine, and test to see if the cleaning has fixed your problem. If the cleaning still fails to fix the problem, take the brushes back out of the machine.

One you have the brushes out of the machine, the first thing you should look at the brush stem that goes into the turbine inside the machine. This is the green pole pictured in middle of the brush block. Examine this pole to determine if the top of it has broken off. It should exactly how the picture shows it. Make sure that the plastic pole has not broken.

If the pole is broken, you will simply need to replace the brush block assembly. The model F5914-900 uses Hoover 5 Brush SpinScrub Brush Block Part # 48437022.

Here's a direct link to this part on our GoVacuum.com storefront:
http://www.govacuum.com/hoovsteambru.html

If the pole is not damaged, the next thing to try is to turn the machine on while you have the brushes out. Step on the handle release pedal so the SteamVac handle is lowered, and not in the upright position, as there is an internal switch that turns the brushes off when the machine is in the upright position. Now look inside the machine where the pole goes in. There is a green, square shaped female receptacle. This is actually the internal turbine that spins the brush block. Make sure that the switch for the brushes on the top of the machine is turned to "Rotating Brush Speed Hi". Turn the machine on.

If you saw the female receptacle where the brush pole is inserted was spinning, then your turbine is fine. If this part is not spinning, then you will need to replace your turbine.

I hope this helps you with your problem. Please feel free request a clarification request form here on Fixya if you have any questions, I'm always happy to answer follow up questions you might have.

SOURCE: Scrub brushes not rotating

Hi There,

You'll need to first diagnosis why these brushes are not spinning. When the SpinScrub brushes on a Hoover SteamVac don't spin, this can be 1 of 3 different things.

In order to diagnosis which one of the problems is causing your problem, here's what you'll need to do.

Step 1. The first and easiest thing you should check is to make sure that that the brush speeed selector knob on the top of the machine is turned on, and is not in the off position. This may sound obvious, but I've had several cutsomers that have come in with this exact problem, only for the brushes to be turned off. Also make sure that the SteamVac's handle is reclined, and not in the upright position. There's a switch inside that shuts the brushes off when the SteamVac is moved into the upright position. If the brushes still are not spinning, move on to step 2.

Step 2. You'll need to remove the SpinScrub brushes from the SteamVac. Turn the machine upside down so that the brushes are facing upwards. There are four clips that hold these brushes in place. You'll need to remove the brushes from the machine by squeezing the four tabs while pulling upwards at the same time. The picture actually only shows the two tabs on the right hand side being squeezed (my left hand was holding the camera, lol), but the tabs on the left hand side are in the exact same location:

23e0faa.jpg
Step 3. Once the brushes have been removed, plug the machine in, make sure that the handle is reclined. Look in the SteamVac where the brushes used to be. You should see a hole that is square shaped where the brushes go into.
232c8b0.jpg
Turn the machine on, and look to see if this square shaped hole is spinning. If the hole is spinning, this indicates that either the brush block itself is bad, or there maybe something clogged (such as pet hair) in the brushes that's preventing them from spinning. If the square hole is not spinning, this indicates that your internal turbine brush gear has gone bad. Here's a link to a repair that I've written on how to replace the internal brush turbine gear if the square shaped, female receptacle hole is not spinning.

If the square shaped hole is spinning, here's what you may do to see if the brush block is just jammed up with debris, or if the brush block itself is bad and needs to be replaced:

Step 1. I'd say that 60% of the time that I see this problem, the main issue is that the brushes just need to be cleaned. If you have pets in the home, a lot of the time the pet hair will just be lodged inside the brushes, will prevent them from spinning. Use a pressurized water hose with spray nozzle is ideal) and spray each brush with water to dislodge any pet hair. You should be able to get these brushes spinning when you spray them. Spray each brush until the brushes are spinning pretty fast. Re-insert the brushes into the machine, and test to see if the cleaning has fixed your problem.

you should look at the brush stem that goes into the turbine inside the machine. This is the green pole pictured in middle of the brush block. Examine this pole to determine if the top of it has broken off. It should exactly how the picture shows it. Make sure that the plastic has not broken. If the pole has broken, you will simply need to replace the brush block.

It can really only be one of these three things that are causing your brushes not turn. Here are links to all of the products that possibly need to purchased (if the brushes weren't just clogged) on our website for the model that you listed this repair under, the Hoover F7425-900.

The motor rotates the bar. My guess would be that the rubber belt that goes from the motor to the belt has fallen off the bar , broke, or the bar is not seated properly. GOOD LUCK FRIEND.

How To Replace Brush Turbine on Hoover SteamVac When Brushes Don't Spin


When the brushes stop spinning on a Hoover SteamVac, it can be caused by several things. In order to diagnosis why your brushes aren't spinning, please view the diagnosis solution I have done on Fixya:
http://www.fixya.com/support/t4286338-hooverspin_scrub_brushes_always_stop


If you have diagnosed your machine, and found that the internal receptacle is not spinning, then you'll now need to replace your turbine. This tip will explain in detail how you'll need to complete this repair.

Here's what you'll need to complete this repair:
- Hoover SteamVac Replacement Turbine Brush Gear (several different parts for different models)
- Phillips Head Screwdriver
- Flat Head Screwdriver

Step 1. Remove both the clean solution, and the dirty solution tanks from the machine, and press the handle release pedal so that the handle is laying down flat:
5b86f81.jpg

Step 2. With a flat head screwdriver, pry off the rotating brush speed indicator knob:
407b985.jpg
Step 3. Unscrew the silver screw that's at the very top of the see-thru suction port where the dirty solution tank rests.

79a39bc.jpg
Step 4. Turn the SteamVac upside down so that the brushes are facing upwards. There are four clips that hold these brushes in place. You'll need to remove the brushes from the machine by squeezing the four tabs while pulling upwards at the same time. The picture actually only shows the two tabs on the right hand side being squeezed, but the tabs on the left hand side are in the exact same location:

23e0faa.jpg
Step 5. Once you've removed the brush block from the machine, there are 4 screws on the bottom that need to be removed. Keep the two silver screws on the very corner in place, you won't need to remove these. Remove the four screws that I've highlighted in red:

91d0198.jpg
Step 6. Turn the machine back over right side up, so that the brushes are on the bottom. There are two clips that hold the top housing in place. Insert your flat head screwdriver in between the top and lower housing in the rear of the machine close to the rear wheels, and pry upwards to un-clip these clips on both the left and right sides, then remove the top motor housing from the machine.

10d963e.jpg
Step 7. You'll now have complete access to the turbine. Remove the two silver screws in the front of the unit that hold the turbine in place, as well as remove the front hose from the turbine:

cabbd35.jpg
Step 8. Once you have removed the two screws you'll be able to lift the turbine up. There's a second hose in the rear of the turbine that you'll also need to remove before you can remove the turbine completely. After you've removed the hose, take the turbine out of the machine. You'll notice to the immediate left of the turbine other hoses that connect to a black circular part. This is actually the pump that sprays the water on the floor. If you ever have the problem where the clean water solution will not spray, it's a good possibility that this part needs to be replaced.

Simply install the new turbine, reattached the hoses and two front screws. When you're putting the top motor housing back on the unit, make sure that the brush speed selector knob that's on the right side of the turbine fits through the **** in the top motor housing. Also before you tighten the two screws that that hold the top housing in in front of the brushes, there's two clips. You'll need to snap the top motor housing behind these two clips. Simply push front of the motor housing until you hear it snap into place.

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.

Why did the brushes stop rotating?


Please check two things:
(1) The shutoff switch on the hood is NOT set to OFF for brush speed.
(2) Remove the red filter panel from under the cleaner, behind the brushes, and clean the hair/debris from the screen filter. Squeeze the two panels together, and pull down to remove from the pocket.
