How do I get to the impeller on my Hoover steam vac dual v to get to the rotating brushes to fix their rotating


First, there is no impeller that turns the brush. It is controlled by a turbine assembly. There is the brush with the middle stem (know as the brush block) and the turbine turns the brushes.
Turbines cost $39.00
Brush Block Assembly cost $34.00

The bearings in the turbine are notorious for seizing. Take it to a vacuum repair shop.

Brushes wont spin on the vax duel v 124 model and i dont know how to get to the belt to see if it has broken. There is no reset button on here that I can find !!


V124 /124a. Brushes not spinning. A clicking noise can sometimes be heard with this fault. It is likely that the brush drive unit has developed a fault. For the adventurous it is quite straightforward to repair. Ensure the machine is unplugged from the power supply and remove the tanks. Place the machine down on the floor and remove the brush bar. This clicks into place and is easy to lift out. Remove the screws on the base of the machine that hold the red cover in place. These are posidriv self tappers. Remove the clear plastic V assembly from the machine. This is clicked into place to make removal and replacement easy. Locate the turbine assembly and underneath the machine remove the screws that hold this in place. Disconnect the two small rubber hoses on the turbine assembly and gently pry out the turbine. The turbine can be opened up by removing the self tapping screws holding it together. Do this on a well lit bench or tabletop
Gently open up the turbine housing by lifting the black clips slightly. Keep the turbine level while you are doing this. Inside is the black plastic turbine blade. Remove the two gears and the small bearing and place to one side. Inspect the turbine blade for cracks or damage. If cracked the turbine blade can be repaired using a hot soldering iron to 'weld' the plastic. Ensure the repair is smoothed off by using a flat file. A tiny amount of light oil can be applied inside the turbine casing. Then reassemble the turbine blade, gears and bearing and clip the housing together. Replace screws in turbine housing. Refit turbine into the machine Replace machine screws, red cover. clear V assembly clicks back on. Test the machine to make sure that the brushes rotate. If the turbine is beyond repair a new one can be obtained as a spare part

BRUHES WON'T ROTATE


The brushes are operated by suction from the motor. Most of the problems with these models are in the turbine, it just needs to be serviced, some replaced. You can check the filter under the bottom (a red or white pull tab). Also check the lid on the lower tank to on properly.

The brushes won't turn.


There are two reason why the "Turbine" will not rotate. A: It is an air driven device, so if there is not enough air flow through it, it will not rotate. I beleive there is a lint screen on the bottom of the unit that slides down and can be cleaned out. Make sure the recovery tank lid is on properly and there are no missing gaskets in the airflow path. B: The turbine is locked up. This happens a lot. You should be able to rotate the brushes on the block by hand will they are locked into the machine easily(this will manually rotate the turbine. If you can't then your turbine is locked up. What you do then is romove the hood. Screws hold it down in the front and it pops into place in the back. Take out the turbine. There are two screws on the top and two accessed from the bottom of the unit. There are a four screws and a few locks that hold the turbine together. Take it apart, but be careful as to how the gears and washers are arranged and not to lose any small parts. You can usually free it up by hand by rotating the fan on the opposite of the gear box. Once it is freed you can apply a lubricant to prevent it from happening again. I use spray lithium grease. There usually isn't enough lubricant applied in on the gears at the factory, so once you do this, you shouldn't have this problem again. When you first run the machine again it might blow a little excess grease out of the exhause, so to be safe don't fire it up on the carpet, when you first test it. The gearbox may need to be replaced if it is damaged and not just locked up, but this rarely happed. Also, try not to lean the machine all the way back(place the handle on a chair or something) over time it tends to tear the hose inside of it.

Good Luck

There is no belt, the brush block is turned by a turbine. Check the brush block, make sure that the shaft that goes into the turbine isn't broke off, If ok, then replace the turbine, or take it apart and clean it out.

Take out the brush block, make sure that the shaft is ok, it goes up into the turbine, which is what drives the brushes. If the shaft is ok, then the turbine either needs to be cleaned and lubed, or replaced.

The brushes do not rotate


The brushs are driven by a turbine, if not turning, it may be bad. You can take it apart and try to clean it out, or just replace it. Also pull out the brush block and see if the shaft that goes up into the turbine is broken off, itis broke, then replace the brush block.

If you are talking about the brush block, take it out and see if the shaft that goes up into the turbine is broken off, if not, then the turbine has gone bad and will have to be replaced. The turbine is what turns the brushes.

Hoover F7431-900


If the screen is not dirty, and the flapper valve to the turbine inlet is open, then the problem is mostly a stuck turbine impeller. The turbine impeller on my F7431-900 has seized TWICE!! The shaft for the turbine is not made of stainless steel, therefore is subject to corrosion. If you have a handy husband or boyfriend, give it to them, because some disassembly is required to access the turbine unit. After the turbine is removed and opened up, get some P'Blaster and squirt is on the shaft. P'Blaster is a rust removing solvent and is great for freeing up rusty nuts and bolts. Allow the P'Blaster 20-30 minutes to penetrate the corroded shaft. Then, grab the impeller and wiggle it back and forth, until free rotation is achieve. The last time my brushes stopped rotating, and I disassembled the turbine, it was really siezed up. I thought I was going to need to buy a new impeller assembly. But, that P'Blaster is really great stuff for breaking up corroded parts (it's like WD-40 on steroids!). I did need to give the turbine's impeller a good twist to free it up. If you can't get the turbine impeller to rotate, then buy a new one (about $27.00). Then, you can just install it and save a bundle on labor. I think I want to become a Hoover vacuum repairman. Their business must be booming because Hoover is putting out a poorly designed turbine unit. Boo, Hiss...... shame on Hoover for selling us **** like this.

PS You can get P'Blaster at any auto store, like Pep Boys, Autozone, etc.
