Question about Hoover SteamVac F5914-900 SpinScrub Upright Vacuum
I read to check the belt on the bottom of the cleaner to see if it is broken or slipped off the drive but can't figure out how to get the bottom off. Ant suggestions??
I just took mine apart and found why the brushes wouldn't turn. You have to start by taking the cover off which consists of 7 screws and the brush on/off switch. Once you get the cover off there is two tubes that you can remove from the air drive and the spring on top that the switch operates. On the bottom is two screws that will allow you to remove the air drive from the unit. Take the cover off the airdrive and you will find two plastic gears and a metal shaft with two bearings - one on each end. This shaft is what the air drive turns and then turns the gears and in turn the brushes turn. On mine the bearings on each end were all rusted and seized up. I used some wd40 and penatrating oil. Put it all back together and it turns perfectly for now...
