    Worked yesterday, but not today. Called customer service and they simply referred me to a local service center.

    My brushes do not spin but everything looks good. Do you know the problem?

  • rmdumont Feb 14, 2009

    How do you find the belt? Is there a breakdown of this unit so I can see how to take it apart?
    I am about ready to go buy a new one, but if I can fix this one...

    my son noticed the brushes aren't spinning at all. husband took them off, we cleaned the sensor screen, can't locate the problem.



    ours was purchased in 07 so out of wtty. does anyone have a schematic or repair manual to show how to dismantle it?



    it worked great when new, but i won't buy another one! the brushes are SPOTLESS, so it tells me they haven't spinned in a long time.

    My  brushes don't spin.  I check the filter and cleaned it as asked.  Still don't spin.  Is there a belt to check, or is there a turbine?  I need a diagram for  dismantling.  I started, but it was getting rather complicated and my memory is not that good any more.

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.

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.

Take apart the housing for the spin brushes, my husband fixed mine yesterday, there is no belt, on mine the gears that are powered by air had slipped, reconnect them and you should be good to go.

If your brushes don't spin check to see if the belt for the brushes is still in good shape it sounds like it might be broken

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.

The scrub brushes dont spin anymore


The brushes are turning by an air driven turbine. The turbine has a pivot bushing made of steel inside of it that gets rusty because of the water that is running through it. The turbine gear will have to be replaced. You can access the turbine gear by removing the hood. You can find a genuine hoover replacement part by following the link below. Just find the model number of your Steamvac.

The Brushes stopped spinning


I clean mine with a chopstick. *shrugs* No way that we can see to take it all apart. Did you clean the filter thing right next to the brushes? hoover.com has manuals to everything they sell unless it's reaaaaaly old. :-)

Hoover Steam Vac Spin Scrub Carpet Cleaner won't...
Posted by hoofbeats1 on Jul 01, 2008
My machine is a little more than a year old. I have used it about 5 times. It started leaking the third time I used it. The fourth time I took it out, the brushes would not spin (I did clean them and rinse them after use each time).
Now the engine screams and won't **** anything up. Do you have any suggestions? My last Hoover Steam Vac was great and lasted for 3 years! Hi,
I have a Hoover Dual V SteamVac F7425-900 that the brushes won't spin. The lint screen is clean & the brushes switch is in the on position.
It dispenses & sucks up the cleaning solution & water; just no brush action. Help


Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. The only thing that I can recommend is that you may have a bad switch, some vacs may have a broken belt or the drive mechanism inside the Hoover Dual V SteamVac F7425-900 in or by the brush assm section and is need of repair. Please check the trouble shooting section of the owner’s manual if you’re needing help and to save money. If you don’t have one then contact the Hoover factory cust serv. So, please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or in the yellow pages, or contact the factory phone number or website to further assist you with your questions.

Belt replacement Hoover carpet cleaner


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.

Hoover Steam Vav & Spin Scrub #F5899-100


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.

Brushes won't spin


open unit's bottem cover and look for the following: - Motor works - Belt which transfer motor's movment to the brushes, in place and not broken (most frequent phenomenon). - No mess on brushes axis which prevent their free movement. Good luck
