Question about Hoover V1 SteamVac SpinScrub Vacuum

Brushes don't turn anymore

There already was the same problem asked and I read the answer and I had already been trying to take the bottom over off and couldn't figure out how. The other person wrote back and said they couldn't figure out how to get it off either. There was no response printed for him. My vac is a hoover F5906-900 How do you get it off. Thank you

Re: Brushes don't turn anymore

This is an update from my last post. There are a bunch of people with this problem. The first thing is to check the little slide out lint trap on the bottom (red on my machine). If this is clogged the brushes won't spin--so I've heard. Check these websites and for the part schematic for the machine If your machine is different you can specify a search to get a diagram of the correct one. Good Luck!

Make sure that that the lid for the dirty water tank is locked on to the bucket, the other is make sure that the filter on the inside of the lid is not all the way up, needs to be a gap 1/4 inch or so.

SOURCE: brushes

This machine has no belts. There is an air driven turbine that propels the brushes. If you look under the little glass window at the left front corner of the machine, there is an intake screen just above the indicator dial. That screen is there to keep debris from entering the turbine and will have to be kept clean. If it is clogged, then the turbine will not function.It is also possible that moisture has entered the turbine and siezed the bearings. If that is the case, the turbine would have to be replaced. Also, because this turbine works off the suction of the motor, if the recovery tank lid is not on correctly, then the suction loss will effect the brushes. Check the lid and make sure it is on right.

Just purchased the Max Extract 77 from Wal-Mart. We used it and the brushes would not turn. Called the 800 number and they could not help us. He stated we could take it to a repair shop or return it to...

Please read the back of your receipt.
I believe you have something like 15 or 30 days to return this type of item.

They have a fantastic return policy as long as you have the receipt, and make sure the stuff is back in the original box, and all the accessories are with it.

As soon as you walk in, a nice smiling lady will place a sticker on the item and point you to the Returns Desk.

That's it.

You will be refunded in the same manner you paid for it.

NB. Don't complain, and don't get too eager giving out unsolicited information.
When asked why you're returning it, answer: I does not work.
If asked what doen't work, answer: The brushes don't move or watever short answer is appropriate.

Irobot roomba 570 brush not spinning

Unscrew and remove the side brush. There is probably a wad of hair and dirt underneath it that's keeping it from spinning. When it's clean, *snap* the brush back on, then screw it into place. If it still doesn't turn, you'll need a new module. Call support: 877-855-8593. Good luck.

DO NOT TRY TO TURN THE KIRBY ON ANYMORE BEFORE YOU GET THIS REPAIRED!!! Your Kirby needs carbon brushes and if you don't already need a new armature, the worn out brushes will destroy the armature that you have. Here is a guide that will help you get down to the carbon brushes to change them...

It is a guide to replace the power switch, but will give you the step-by-step to get down to the carbon brushes.

Hope this helps,

I read the manual and tried my new Hoover, the brushes spin, but the waters not going to the bottom tank, what does that mean and what can i do?

I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure.
You could have a bad water release valve on your water tank of which holds the water, the trigger assm might not be connected, bent or broken. Check the trouble shooting owners manual --- also there are hoses that could be crimped or bent, or clogged or not connected, but it is my guess it is the water release valve. Try to back track the water from the holding tank and test all the valves on the system and you might find the problem by the process of elimination. Feel free to contact you local vacuum cleaner dealer in the yellow pages or contact the Hoover Co @ the information listed below: Telephone
Contact our Customer Service Department at 1.330.499.9499

I have the steam vac spinscrub upright. The brushes won't spin anymore.

Have you checked the lint screen? Your brushes are air driven if it's a Hoover Spin Scrub. There is a clear cover on the left side, when facinf from front. Remove this cover, about 3x5 inches and tapered, and clean the screen. Some units have a red or white screen that you can pull out from the bottom of the unit, left side just behind the brush block. Clean the screen then reinstall. Check that recovery tank is properly positioned- lack of seal means less suction which translates to brush block not turning.
