Question about Hoover SteamVac F5914-900 SpinScrub Upright Vacuum

1 Answer

Hoover Steam Vac with Clean Surge model #F50905-900

Brush indicator will not spin so I guess the brushes are not turning also.
I would be happy to buy a new brush assembly if I knew that was the problem. One of the latches snaped off some time(?) and the brushes are wearing down. The brush assembly does fit back into place and every thing else seems to work fine except the indicator not spinning and the brushes not turning. Purchased this item in 10-15-04 and I really love it. Help!!

All you need for your item is the belt.dissassemble the unit and you will se the track where the belt was, or even the old ne snapped an trapped somewhere inside. brush assembly purchase will not solve this.

My hoover spin brush steam vac brushes wont spin


Unplug vac turn it over and check for belts that drive the brushes
They are located at the very end of the brush They are probably missing
or they snapped and sitting in the housing somewhere. If you ar mechanically inclined not very difficult to replace. While you are at it clean all the hair and fibers that usually accumulate around the brush bushings
That is usually the culprit that wears down the belts
have fun

The Hoover steam vac dual v does not spin its brushes and I dont know how to dismantel it to view the belt .


There is no belt on the steam vac - it operates on air flow. Remove the brush and insert a flat screwdriver into the square hole. If it does not turn, the turbine has seized up and must be replaced. Remember that the brush will not turn unless the lower tank is in place, and the handle is tilted back.

Hoover steam vac model f7425-900 filter is


The brush system on this model has a poor engineering design in that the brushes are running off an air turbine, which uses a steel bushing to spin the turbine which gets rusty from the moisture when the machine is being used. No long term solver. I would replace the machine with a Dirt Devil Platinum Force model

The spinning brushes are not turning on my Model #F330-900 Steam Vac with rinse.... What could be my problem? Thanks MC rcmc01@alltel.net


Pull the brush block out, is the shaft still on the top of it or did it break off? If it is ok, then the turbine is most likely bad. The turbine is what drives the brush block. Also make sure the little screen filter is clean.

Spin brushes spin freely on steam vac when not attached to cleaner indicator screen not dirty speed selector is in high position brushes are clean spin brush indicator when brushes attached to machine...


If this is a Hoover Steam vac, the turbine which drives the brushes is bad. If not a Hoover, then what is it, they are different, need brand and model number.

I have the steam vac spinscrub upright. The brushes won't spin anymore.


Have you checked the lint screen? Your brushes are air driven if it's a Hoover Spin Scrub. There is a clear cover on the left side, when facinf from front. Remove this cover, about 3x5 inches and tapered, and clean the screen. Some units have a red or white screen that you can pull out from the bottom of the unit, left side just behind the brush block. Clean the screen then reinstall. Check that recovery tank is properly positioned- lack of seal means less suction which translates to brush block not turning.

I can not seem to get the attachment for the upholstery cleaner to operate what am i doing wrong????

Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure.
The attachment works on the suction from the Hoover Steam Vac and it’s either a straight suction tool or a revolving brush, check the front of the machine to see if the is a switch to turn on and odd, also before you attach the upholstery tool check the end of the hose for suction, it may be that your upholstery tool may be clogged or the brushes are not spinning and a part may be broken. Feel free to check with you local vac dealer or a new or a good used part if you find out what is wrong. So if you need further assistance, please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or in the yellow pages, or contact the factory phone number or website to further assist you with your questions.
