SOURCE: brushes do not rotate

Sounds as though your drive belt has come off. Or you have an object stopping the brushes from rotating.

SOURCE: Hoover Steam Vac - Brushes not turned, no suction power

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.

"I did some research online and the recurrent theme was a bad turbine assembly. Fortunately I was able to fix this myself which took about 2 hours (some reading) and little effort. The problem was with the turbine which is fairly simple and had a bearing that had rusted and froze up. Removing the cover proved to be more difficult than fixing the stuck bearing. This was mostly due to figuring out the correct screws to remove and finally discovering that the back of the cover (over the wheels) is not secured by fasteners but by pegs that "pop" out.

Once I had the brush assembly and Cover removed the turbine came out with the removal of some obvious screws and gently pulling the hoses from the assembly. After carefully opening the assembly housing I discovered the bearing problem and with a little lubrication and some new grease had it working in short order. Putting everything back together was simple as well."


this worked for me. although once i got in i just had to mess around with the gears and loosen them up. getting in was the hard part soo here you go peoples.

take off tanks

unscrew 6 screws fom underneath machine. look carefully

just underneath where the dirty tank goes right by the part that sucks everything up is a screw. unscrew it

pop off the switch for your spin scrub mode. it pops right back on.

make sure your locks for the tank are turned in

then the back just pops off. you might have to give it a good tug. there are no screws although it maight look like there is.

then pull off the grey part.

once inside it is pretty easy.

but if you have any questionbs email at lostnhisblueyes@aol.com

i took off so many more screws than i needed to to get this figured out so dont do that.

My hoover spin scrub has no suction wont pick up water why?


No suction means somewhere in the intake side of the system you have either a blockage or an air leak.

Our DC41 is impossible to push on carpet. Is there an adjustment to do? Almost like there is too much suction.


See if the following information can help.

CARPETS OR HARD FLOORS

• The brush bar will always default to 'ON' (spinning) each time you switch the

appliance 'ON' and recline it for cleaning.

• The brush bar will not rotate when the appliance is upright.

• To switch the brush bar 'OFF' (e.g. for delicate rugs and hard floors):

- switch the appliance 'ON'

- recline the appliance

- press the brush bar 'ON/OFF' button - the brush bar will stop spinning.

• The brush bar will automatically stop if it becomes obstructed. See 'Brush bar -

clearing obstructions'.

• Before vacuuming your flooring, rugs and carpets, check the manufacturer's

recommended cleaning instructions.

• Some carpets may fuzz if a rotating brush bar is used when vacuuming. If this

happens, we recommend vacuuming in 'hard floor' mode and consulting with

the flooring manufacturer.

• The brush bar on the appliance may damage some carpet types. If you are
unsure, turn 'OFF' the brush bar.

The Hoover switches on and the brush rotates but the actual Hoover doesn't come on?


Hi, is there suction when you open the top of the wand handle?

If no, have you emptied the container. next check the tubes that are removable, you may find there is a blockage of hair and bits, have you removed filter and given it a goos wash.

The brushes and the belt are not rotating. The power seems fine and there is suction. I have no other history on this problem since I was given this almost new unit over Thanksgiving. Where should I be...


If you've got suction, but the brushes and belt are not rotating, then either the belt has come off the motor shaft, or the belt is broken and just looks OK.

Remove the bottom cover off the floor head and check that the brush roller turns freely. If it does, then check the belt.

Let me know if you need additional repair information.

Carpet setting not working


there is a belt in the nozzle that is driven by a small motor in turn will drive the roller when set to carpet. did you completely dis-assemble the nozzle? ie, to remove the roller and clean the endcaps? this would also show the belt. The gear on the motor wears very easily and could also be worn. I would change the nozzle or get a new Flair. new nozzles cost about $25-$30.
