Right next to the power switch is a switch that will turn on/off the beater brush. Push firmly on this button and see if that turns it back on. It will turn itself off if it has too much resistance on it from getting tangled in something like a long carpet fiber that wraps itself around the beater brush. Check and make sure it's not bound up by something and then press the on/off button for the beater brush.

Hello,

I'd be happy to walk you through this repair. Unfortunately this is a very common problem with the Hoover SteamVacs.

Here's what you'll need to complete this repair:
- Hoover Turbine Assembly For Model F5866-900 Part # 43191001 or 90001354
- Phillips Head Screwdriver
- Flat Head Screwdriver

Step 1. Remove both the clean solution, and the dirty solution tanks from the machine, and press the handle release pedal so that the handle is laying down flat:

Step 2. With a flat head screwdriver, pry off the rotating brush speed indicator knob:


55c72db.jpg
Step 3. Unscrew the silver screw that's at the very top of the see thru suction port where the dirty solution tank rests.


91c5d91.jpg
Step 4. Turn the SteamVac upside down so that the brushes are facing upwards. There are four clips that hold these brushes in place. You'll need to remove the brushes from the machine by squeezing the four tabs while pulling upwards at the same time. The picture actually only shows the two tabs on the right hand side being squeezed, but the tabs on the left hand side are in the exact same location:


903753e.jpg
Step 5. Once you've removed the brush block from the machine, there are 4 screws on the bottom that need to be removed. Keep the two silver screws on the very corner in place, you won't need to remove these. Remove the four screws that I've highlighted in red:


8f04e58.jpg
Step 6. Turn the machine back over right side up, so that the brushes are on the bottom. There are two clips that hold the top housing in place. Insert your flat head screwdriver in between the top and lower housing in the rear of the machine close to the rear wheels, and pry upwards to unclip these clips on both the left and right sides, then remove the top motor housing from the machine.


19c46e5.jpg
Step 7. You'll now have complete access to the turbine. Remove the two silver screws in the front of the unit that hold the turbine in place, as well as remove the front hose from the turbine:



9f8ce8d.jpg
Step 8. Once you have removed the two screws you'll be able to lift the turbine up. There's a second hose in the rear of the turbine that you'll also need to remove before you can remove the turbine completely. After you've removed the hose, take the turbine out of the machine. You'll notice to the immediate left of the turbine other hoses that connect to a black circular part. This is actually the pump that sprays the water on the floor. If you ever have the problem where the clean water solution will not spray, it's a good possibility that this part needs to be replaced.

Simply install the new turbine, reattached the hoses and two front screws. When you're putting the top motor housing back on the unit, make sure that the brush speed selector knob that's on the right side of the turbine fits through the **** in the top motor housing. Also before tighting the two screws that that hold the top housing in in front of the brushes, there's two clips. You'll need to snap the top motor housing behind these two clips. Simply push front of the motor housing until you hear it snap into place.

That's about it. If you have any trouble with this repair, please don't hesitate to use the Clarification request form here on Fixya. I'm always more then happy to answer any follow up questions that you might have. If this repair was helpful to you, please help other Fixya members with this same problem find my repair by rating it helpful.

SOURCE: turbine head of my Dyson DC08 does not spin

This response is likely too late coming, however for others the problen appears to be the same as the fault with my turbine head which was that the turbine fan had become loose on its spindle. With no pressure on the brushes, friction would allow the fan to turn and drive the brushes via the belt. The faulty part is not available separately however I have repaired mine using araldite glue. Other things to check is for a worn belt. Cheers.

SOURCE: Need to dismantle a dyson

I just cracked this. The cover can be prised off using a flat-blade screwdriver. There is a little slot for this. I imagine there is a proper tool for the job, because it's a bit difficult and a bit frightening, but it does come off. I couldn't do the same with the larger cover on the other side, though. My brush wasn't rotating, so I squirted as much WD40 as I dared in as many orifices as I could find, and, lo and behold, on reassembly it started working again.

Turbo head has stopped spinning


Hi Fay, it's Jack at Dyson.

If your DC39 Multi Floor's turbine head has stopped spinning, this could mean there's a blockage in the turbine head, wand, hose or lower duct hose. This could reduce the airflow passing through the machine, which in turn will affect the turbine which powers the rotating brush bar.

It's also a good idea to check the Turbine head is free of any threads, hair or other obstructions:

How do I get a new belt to repace a broken one in a DC23 turbine head


Hi there, it's Jack at Dyson.

The Turbine head's belt is not a part we would ask a customer to fit, and therefore it's not available as an individual component. It's part of the turbine drive mechanism, and we'd advise against attempting to dismantle this as it could result in damage to the Turbine head. If the Turbine head happened to fail within the Dyson warranty period we should normally be able to replace it, as long as it's been used and maintained according to the User guide. Out of warranty, a replacement Turbine head could be chargeable.

If you'd like some additional help or advice from our experts you're welcome to contact us directly on 0800 298 0298 (UK), 1-866-693-9766 (US), 1-877-397-6622 (CA) or 1800 239 766 (AU).

Why does it not fit?


Hi Clint, it's Jack at Dyson.

DC24 is not compatible with the original Mini turbine head as this tool is engineered to work with the performance characteristics of our full size upright and canister vacuums.

However, we do make a Mini turbine head which is compatible with DC24 - for help ordering this, I would encourage you to contact us directly by calling 0800 298 0298 (UK), 1-866-693-9766 (US), or 1-877-397-6622 (CA). Once we've taken the serial number of your machine we'll be able to confirm the correct Mini turbine head for your vacuum.

We'll look forward to hearing from you.

Best wishes,

Jack

Hi there,

I'm sorry to hear you're having difficulties with your DC32 Animalpro. If the turbine head doesn't seem to be working correctly, and is not blocked, you may need to wash the cleaner's filter. Under normal use, this needs to be done at least once every 3-6 months. Use cold water without detergent, and allow the filter to dry completely before replacing it - this may take up to 24 hours. For guidance on washing the filter, please see the guide linked below:

http://www.dyson.co.uk/support/help.asp?article=1847&product=DC32-ANIMAL

This should allow you to resolve your issue without further assistance, but if your problem with the turbine head persists, please get in touch with us directly. If it's necessary to replace the turbine head, it should be covered by our 5-year warranty, as long as the cleaner has been used in accordance with the terms and conditions listed in the user guide. You can call us free on 08002980298 - our Helpline is available from 7am until 10pm, 7 days a week.

Kind regards,

Jack
