Question about Hoover F7412-900 SteamVac Dual V Widepath Carpet Cleaner with Power

2 Answers

I'm looking for f7412-900 replacement instructions for turbine

The brush assembly spins when I take it out and manually spin it. And the crank in the bottom spins very slowly and weak when the brushes aren't in. I'm assuming the turbine assembly is worn out. I'm looking for specific instructions on removing the old unit and putting the new one in. I have found the part and will order it if this is a simple process of removing some panels and replacing the unit. I am fairly savvy when dealing in this kind of thing. But want to be sure there are no special tools or special steps required to get this working again. I appreciate any help you can provide. :)

SOURCE: Brush assembly will not spin at all.

The turbine is bad, that is what drives the brush roll. You either replace it, sometimes you can take the turbine apart and clean it, alot of times they just get gummed up and won't work. Number 23 is the turbine.94b67a6.jpg

SOURCE: hoover turbine replacement

first you must remove the dirty water tank then the nozzle window on top of the machine. (this is the clear piece that the dirty water is sucked through.) then remove all 8 screws from the bottom along with the 1 screw on the main housing. after all this the top housing will be snapped into the base at two spots in the rear of the upper housing. when these are loose the housing should be out. you will find the turbine in the front along with 2 more screws and 2 hoses that also must come off. attach new part and reassemble.
good luck!!!

SOURCE: brushes wont spin

Greetings from GoVacuum,

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

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 top, and 2 on the rear of the brushes. (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 (garden 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. 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 has not broken.

If the pole has broken, you will simply need to replace the brush block. If the pole is not damaged, the next thing to try is to turn the machine on while you have the brushes out. Look inside the machine, where the pole goes into the turbine (also important, make sure the switch for the brushes is turned to "Rotating Brush Speed Hi), this female receptacle should spin when the machine is turned on. It is important the try this when the foot pedal is released, and the handle down, and not in the upright position, as there is an internal switch that shuts the brushes off when the machine is in the upright position.

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

I hope this helps you with your problem. If not, please feel free to email me at chris.jones@govacuum.com, and I'd be happy to walk you through the diagnosing. I also can provide you with a blown up parts schematic to your machine, please just get the model number off the back of the machine and provide, and provide me with the full model number. I do carry all parts for your machine, and would be happy to provide any technical support you need.

I tried uploading the pictures to this solution, however Fixya will not allow the pictures because they are too big. Please email me, and I'll send you the pictures.

SOURCE: The brushes won't spin. I have removed and

On mine there is an air turbine that powers the brushes. There is a red screen that you squeeze and pull out to clean. Perhaps yours is clogged. If the screen is clear, perhaps the turbine has something binding it to keep it from turning. I hope this gets you on the path to repair your problem.

Dyson Vacuum, brush won't spin


I just picked one of these (DC-07s) up at a flea market, and even talked the price down since I didn't see the brush spin when i power tested it. The brush will not spin if (1) the vacuum is fully upright (i.e. the handle is all the way up, or (2), if the brush clutch is disengaged. The system has a clutch to engage or dis-engage the brush, so that you don't have it kicking debis all over hard floors. Looking down from the usual vacuum-driver positing, it's on right hand side of the brush/motor/wheel assembly. A (probably) grey cylindrical knob that can be turned toward you for hard floor (no spin) mode, or away from you to engage the brush for carpet.

If neither of those works, check that the belt is still attached. Disengage the clutch, turn unit over so you can see the brush. Try to spin it. It should spin freely. Now engage the clutch and try to spin it. If it still spins freely, the drive belt is broken or missing, at which point you'll need to look up the replacement process (not difficult) online and get another belt (or see if it just came loose). The belt is secured under a cross-over piece on the bottom plate for the brush, so it can be a bit of a pain to get to.to check it's still there, so the ease-of-rotation test is easier.

Hoping this helps, and good luck!

Why are the brushes not spinning?


Hi Liz, if your brushes are still in good shape and do not need replacing then I would see if something else isn't broken or busted. You can always check for an obstruction in the brushes or remove the brush assembly & then reseat the brush assembly. Before doing so you should remove both Tanks from your Hoover. Then there are two buttons on top of the Nozzle Assembly that holds the brushes. You will need to release these two buttons on top, then tilt the handle of the unit backwards and this should let the brush assemble fall out of place. Inspect the brush assembly for any obstruction and even check to see if all the brushes still spin okay. If all looks good then align the post on top of the brush assembly with the hole on the bottom of the nozzle assembly and then snap the brush assembly back into place. I know this might sound crazy but did you first check to make sure that you did not have the switch set to "Wet\Dry Pickup." This will stop the brushes from turning as the switch needs to be in the other position to turn.

My brush bar keeps falling down. We replaced motor but now the brushes don't spin.


Hi! If you've replaced the turbine & gear assembly and the brushes are still not spinning, a replacement brush-block assembly may be needed. The brushes counter rotate and need each other to spin. If a single brush is falling out, the brush assembly is broken. If the whole brush assembly keeps falling out, the drive pin shaft may be damaged. To order a replacement brush-block follow the link below.

The roller stop rotating


Remove the brush assembly from the base unit and check the condition of the drive belt. Check the brush end bearings for wound-up thread, hair, and other debris. Place the brush back without the belt--it should spin freely. Reinstall the belt if it is in good condition and check for motor running of the brush. If it seems weak, replace the belt. Hope this helps!

Brushes won't spin


First, please be sure to unplug your Steam Vac and remove both the clean water and the dirty water tank.
There should be a square stem that sticks up in the center of your brush assembly. If this stem is broken you will need to replace the complete brush assembly. If the stem is good; turn your cleaner on it's side and check in the area where the brush assembly goes (with the brush assembly removed). In the center of this area there is a square hole where the stem from the brush assembly goes. The square hole is in the bottom of the turbnie that spins your brushes. Using a large flat blade screw driver (not so large that you'll damage the hole), stick it in to the square hole and try to spin it. It should spin freely, if it is very hard to spin or won't spin at all, your turbine is bad and will need to be replaced.

Change the belt


Hi There,

Here's how you can replace the belt on your Eureka SmartVac 4870. I have taken pictures of the repair to help you better with this.

Here's what you'll need in order to complete this repair:

- Eureka Style R Extended Life Replacement Belt, Part 61110
- Eureka SmartVac Model 4870 Roller Brush Assembly, Part 61520 (Only if the brush no longer spins, or the brushes are worn out)
- Phillips head screw driver

Step 1. Turn the vacuum upside down so that the brush roller is facing upwards. Unscrew the three screws that I've highlighted in red.

56134d4.jpg


Step 2. Remove the bottom plate after unscrew the three red highlighted screws. Once you remove the bottom plate, you'll have full access to the roller brush and belt area. Remove the roller brush by pulling straight up on the roller brush itself. Discard old belt, and test roller brush to ensure that it spins freely by holding the very end of each side, also called the bearing caps with just your finger tips. Try spinning the brush with your thumbs. The brush should spin several times around with each spin. If you notice the brush doesn't spin at all, or if you feel some resistance when you spin the brush, this means that your bearings are either gone, or will be soon. It may be time to consider a new roller brush at this time.

Step 3. Remove the new Eureka Style R belt from the packaging, and wrap one end around the the metal pin, on the opposite side of the roller brush. This pin is actually the motor shaft that spins the belt, which spins the brush.

81c4db4.jpg

Step 4. Wrap the other end of the belt through the side of the roller brush that has the pulley, and use the roller brush to stretch the brush roll back into the agitator housing. Make sure the end caps fit in the housing correctly by making sure there are no gaps between the roller brush housing and the end caps of the roller brush.

010b671.jpg

Step 5. After reinstalling the roller brush back into the housing with the belt attached, pull the belt forwards towards the brush. The brush should spin when you do this. Make sure that the belt is not pinched underneath of the roller brush or this will cause the belt to break immediately when you turn the vacuum back on.

Step 6. Reinstall the bottom plate, making sure that the little notches on the front end of the bottom plate tucked underneath of the reverse notches on the bottom housing of the vacuum cleaner. Tighten all 3 screws back into the bottom plate. Make sure the vacuum is set to carpet mode, and turn the vacuum on.

If you have any questions about this repair, or if you notice that the roller brush stops when the brushes hit the carpeting, please just use the clarification request form here on the Fixya repair page. I will then be happy to walk you through a little more advanced repair of replacing the clutch in the Eureka SmartVac that controls the rug/floor switch. Most of the time though the belt will be all the vacuum needs.

I hope that this was helpful information to you. If this helped you, please be so kind and rate the repair as helpful by clicking on the thumbs up icons in the top corner of this repair.

Thank you very much,

Chris J.

Hoover floor mate wet/dry - brushes do not spin


Hey there bankshots, if you look at the bottom of the head of the vacuum, you should be able to see the brushes. Their are some screws to remove to gain access to the inside of the bottom panel. When opened, you should be able to see the entire spinning brush assembly. On one side, there is an area which has no brushes and may contain the remnents of your belt which most likely is the problem. These belts are often replaced and not the sign of any thing to worry about. Replacements can be found at registered repair facilities. Alternately, a professional will do it for you for a modest charge. Also your warranty may cover this if your machine is less than a year old, or you purchased the extra protection from the seller. Good Luck!
