Brush stopped working on Hoover 5906-900


this is how you fix the hoover (F7452-900)" Brushes not spinning"
Uses the turbine model and same solution would be similar.The main gear attached to turbine becomes stuck. This problem should not happen as often as I see other people also having this problem. Must be a poor design on Hoover's part. It takes about 30 minutes and a Phillips screw driver and wrench.Pretty easy, just have to remember what screws went where.
Remove brushes, and front suction cover
On the bottom of the machine:
Remove the 4 screws behind brushes which attach the top faceplate
Remove the 2 screws from base in the sunken holes
Remove the two long silver screws from base which connect all the way to turbine assembly
Stand machine upright
Remove the floor select switch handle
Remove 1 screw near the center beside the intake hole
Remove the 2 screws over the rear wheels
Remove faceplate cover, the front will need to be gently pried over the clear plastic part, be careful about the upright disengaging lever under faceplate, move it under the metal wire
Remove the 2 screws in the front of the turbine assembly
Remove the 2 hoses on either side
Disengage the bar on the floor selector switch
Pull out the turbine assembly
Remove the 4 screws and 3 clips to separate the assembly
Remove the filter (which is most likely clean since, cleaning this is the manufactures only solution)
Remove the large white gear and with a wrench remove ball bearing
Remove other large white gear
Note that the metal gear attached to turbine will not move (this was my problem), with a wrench gently grab metal gear and twist free. Spin turbine to make sure it moves freely.

The brushes won't turn. I have turned the switch


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 Hoover Steam vac.

I have a hoover f5914-900 steam vac.. and I was wondering if there's a way to take apart the spin brushes to get them cleaned out well. I loaned it to family, and the brushes came back extremely soiled and...


The brush block may be removed from the base for rinsing.
Yes, you can CAREFULLY disassemble the brush block assembly by releasing each of three latches that hold each of the clear gear covers to the main block. A small screwdriver is used to GENTLY lift each tab, one at a time. Pay attention to what position the special gear is at that has the drive pin (1/4 inch square drive) for correct reassembly.

Here is the link to the User Manual that shows how to remove the brushes from the base.

Repalcement of belt on Hoover F7425-900 Steam Cleaner


To help out here the hood has 6 screws on the underside of the machine and 2 post snaps at the rear of the hood. They pop out when lifting the rear of the hood. The air motor is as described above, 2 on bottom and 2 on top. When removed the air motor again has 2 screws on the cover of the gear set and a couple clips which come loose readily when the screws are removed. This exposes the gear set. Remove the gears and free the air motor shaft. Clean, lubricate and reassemble. You should be good to go. The Air motor is the only weak link in the machine. The bearings seize due to exposure as moist air is pulled through the air motor to drive the gear set. Great idea! Hoover should have used a stainless drive gear and bearings or a plastic bearing that would hold up to the RPM of the motor. Regardless, as is it will be plagued with the problem for the life of the machine unless you upgrade. Hoover may have solved this for all I know. Hint: The motor will not create any torque until the suction tank is in place. Oh, and keep the screen clean. That is the motor intake.
