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.

I would take off the brushes and make sure they are clean. You should be able to mmanually turn them.

I bought 2 used filter queens. Does the power head always bog down to the point of stalling out when vacuuming. Very strange for a high end vacuum.


I shouldn't. Check the power nozzle brush to make sure it's clean. Remove thread, hair, etc. that may be wrapped around the brush.
Check the tautness of the belt. If it's too tight it will cause strain on the motor, which will result in this.
Check the ends of the brush. They may need cleaned, or the bearings may need replaced.
I highly recommend taking it to an authorized Filter Queen distrubuter for diagnosis and repair.

There are instructions for replacing the brush at the following site, if you decide to do it yourself.

The spin scrub brushes do not spin.


Try this: Make sure the setting is set to floor, then remove the little window (you might need a flat screwdriver to "pry" it up) and clean off the filter. If there is a blockage, the brushes will not spin! I hope this helps, if so, please give feedback when asked. Thanks, Rene(the VAcuum Doctor)

I have a hoover steamvac model # F5915-900 and the brushes are not turning when I turn the selector from off to low or high. I've checked to make sure the brushes are locked in place and they turn manually...


(1) Remove the brush assembly by pulling/unlatching it from base on each side.
(2) Does one of the brushes have the drive pin present? It should be about ¼ inch square, and two inches long. It attaches the brushes to the drive mechanism.
(3) Remove and clean the intake filter. One the base of the cleaner, behind the brushes, squeeze the two red abs together and pull the panel down to access the screen. Clean the hair/debris off the screen and reassemble.

Hoover steam cleaner spin scrub brushes wont turn cant find belt


Two checks:
(1) Remove the brushes by pulling down on the two ends. Is the squaare drive pin present on top of one brush? It should be about 1/4 inch square, and two inches long. That connects the brush to the drive mechanism.
(2) Remove and clean the inlet filter. It is in a red panel, behind the brushes, under the cleaner. Squeeze the two panel tabs together, and pull down to extend from the base. Cleane the hair/debris from the filter screen.

My hoover spin scrub machine has stopped scrubbing. It still dispenses and pulls up the water, but the brushes don't move. I've checked the on off button for brush control and cycled it to off and back on,...


There is a filter on the front right hand side of my F5871-900 Hoover. If you remove the plastic covering and clean that filter (wet finger may do), you're Hoover will begin spinning again!
