Question about Hoover F7210-900 SteamVac V2 Upright Wet/Dry Vacuum
I have the hoover steamvac F7410-900. My problem is the brushes won't spin, even though the motor is running, and the "brushes on-off" switch doesn't do anything.
Funny, lots of Hoover steamvacs seem to have this exact problem. I just fixed mine today and it was a problem with the turbine that spins the brushes. It took me a while to get to the part without breaking the plastic housing. If you have the patience, you should have no problem figuring it out. When I got to the turbine part, I opened it up and found that the metal disc at the end of the shaft was rusted and that no grease was ever applied. I took a metal brush, cleaned it up, greased the wheel, and then closed it back up. After putting it back together, it worked great. It almost looks like they don't grease this part on purpose so that it rusts and fails in order for you to spend more (buy parts, extended warranty, etc.). There's tons of grease on one of the other wheels that doesn't even need it. The product works great other than this. I've had mine for about 1 and 1/2 years and this is the first problem I've had with it.

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
