Hoover Steam Vac - Brushes not turned, no suction power

I have a Hoover SteamVac that I purchased in December 2007. It has been working fantastically, but yesterday, the brushes stopped rotation and there is no suction power - I turned the unit over and all I can hear is blowing air.

    My hoover is about2yrs old my mother has had hers for about 7-8yrs, and I don't recall hers ever losing suction, but mine did. The brushes still have some movement, but I am not sure if they are going slow or if there speed is normal, and it feels like air is coming up and out of the sides.

The Brushes not spinning is most likely is caused by seized bearings in the turbine, requiring shop service (easy fix). The suction issue can be caused by the standpipe seal missing or lower recovery tank not on properly, on some models missing front panel. I would need more exact model info to assist further.

How do you get to the belt on a Hoover steam vac?


I hate to tell you, but there is no belt at all on the steam vac line. they have a suction driven turbine to turn the brushes, and a suction driven pump for the water flow. But definately no belts.

If something is not working on it, describe more in detail what is not working and we can narrow it down better for a proper solution.

There is no suction on the steam vac help


the srub brushes have 2 belts that run the beater and scrub brush. These are probably broken. A vacuum cleaner repair shop should have them. About 8 to 10 bucks to get replacement parts.

Vacuum will not work to bring dirty water up in canister


check for suction. Turn it over and start to see if the brushes are turning. If they are not then the flywheel on the blower motor has ripped loose from the motor shaft and it will have to be replaced. It is made of aluminm and does not last long. Mine lasted 13 monthy. Just out of warranty ! go figure.

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.

I can not seem to get the attachment for the upholstery cleaner to operate what am i doing wrong????

Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure.
The attachment works on the suction from the Hoover Steam Vac and it’s either a straight suction tool or a revolving brush, check the front of the machine to see if the is a switch to turn on and odd, also before you attach the upholstery tool check the end of the hose for suction, it may be that your upholstery tool may be clogged or the brushes are not spinning and a part may be broken. Feel free to check with you local vac dealer or a new or a good used part if you find out what is wrong. So if you need further assistance, 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.

Problems with the Hoover Steam vac Heated carpet cleaner


This happens when the filter on the inside of the lid for the dirty water tank is pushed all of the way up. You need to leave a 1/4 in. gap from the top to the top of the filter.

Steam vac will not pick up dirty water


My Hoover Steamvac problem isn't with the bruches--it's with the suction. Dirty soapy water stays in the carpet instead of being returned to one of the holding tanks.
