SOURCE: brushes not rotating on hoover f7425-900 steamvac v2

I had the same problem and it was inside the turbine assembly. If you take the turbine assembly off the machine and open it up, you will see the turbine blades on one side and the reduction gears on the other side. The problem on mine was a needle bearing sandwiched between two washers on the reduction gear side. This bearing/washer stack is the stabilizer for the turbine gear shaft. Mine was rusted solid. I removed the washers and bearing and cleaned them up with a wire wheel being careful not to lose any of the tiny needles. Once evrything was rust-free, I reset the needles with grease and sandwiched the bearing between the washers. I then reinstalled this stack back in the case along with the other gears, regreased everything, and buttoned it up. Brushes are spinning better than they have in a long time.

There some screws off from the bottom, remove the top cover, the turbine has 2 screws on the front of it and there 2 long screws you take off from the bottom, remove the tubing and it should come loose. Some times you can take it apart and clean the inside parts and it will work ok, if that doesn't do it then you have to replace it.

SOURCE: brushes do not rotate

Sounds as though your drive belt has come off. Or you have an object stopping the brushes from rotating.

Hoover steamvacs don't use belts. If the brushes are not turning, pull the brush block out, turn the machine on and see if the square hole where the brush block was, is turning. If not then the turbine is bad. Sometimes you can take the turbine apart and clean it out. most times I have found , replace it.

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!!!

The brushes are not working.


We have a Max Extract 60 and when we turned it on the brushes did not work. My husband took the pieces for the brush motor apart and put it back together and then they worked fine. They must of been bound up or put together wrong. Works great now.

Hoover F7458-900 SteamVac The brushes quit


My Hoover F7458-900 was doing the same thing, brushes not turning and since it is about 7 years old and out of warrenty I decided I had nothing to lose so I took it apart after reading all the other posts on this problem. The brushes are actually turned by a turbine motor (no belts involved) that runs off air produced by the vaccum motor of the unit. The air turns a metal spindle that then turns several nylon gears in the turbin the last of which turns the brushes. The nylon gear that engages with the metal spindle was worn down to the point that it was no longer engaging with it and thus not turning.
The only fix for this problem is to buy a new turbin motor which is not that expensive about $34 plus shipping since they don't sell just the nylon gear. Hope this helps

Hoover steamvac brushes don't spin. everything else works great. Took it apart and no visible problems


my husband took it apart today and the impellers were gunked up with black stuff.

he used these pictures that someone else generously posted. ours was slightly different in internal design, but they are helpful regardless.

here is an exploded diagram of the 5903, 04, etc. it will help you see if any parts are missing or broken.

parts list if you need some:

it's working fine now. sucks much better too. what a difference!

guess for the $179 these things avg, they just need annual maintenance. I wouldn't pay someone to do it though.

Sorry it is not belt driven. There is a turbine that drives the brush. You have to remove the top cover to get to it. But if the motor smells hot, then you may have a problem with it also.
