The reset button is in the handle, under the cover for the switch. remove the two screws and pop apart. you need to pull up the little post under the lever switch, and push it back down. hope this works for ya.

I just bought a Hoover Air Lite, and the mechanism that moves the belt isn't doing anything, I tried resetting the brushroll but that didn't do anything. Why is it not working and what can I do to fi


Hi Brian! The vacuum must be in vacuum mode for the brushes to spin. Try these trouble shooting steps below to get your brushes spinning.

1. Power the vacuum on.
2. Recline the handle by securing the nozzle and pulling the handle back.
3. Press the brushroll on/off button located directly next to power button.

The brushes should begin to spin, if not repeat the same steps only you will press the brushroll on/off button twice consecutively. This is the brushroll reset procedure. Hope this works out for you!

Belt will not turn


If the belt is connected and not broken, then the brush that it drives is suspect. Remove the brush and clean as best you can. At the ends of the brush spray a bit of WD40 and twist by hand until it moves freely. This solves about 95% of the brush issues.
If you find this suggestion helpful, I would appreciate you leaving a rating for me. Regards, Paul

The spin brushes move too slowly.


if you turn the machine over you might see a red tab recessed behind the brush's, if you see one pull it out (it doesn't come all the way out) and clean any debris. Otherwise it might have a small screen in the housing which is not really easy to get to.

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!

Brush part not spinning


The hoover savvys have a reset button on the top of the hood, its to keep from destroying the belt. Simply press that button and the brush should start to turn.

If this does not solve the problem it is more than likely the belt (rubber band thingy :) ) in this case pull the bottom plate off again, but this time lift the brush out and slide it to the side and out from the belt. Then look inside the machine and get the belt off of the motor drive gear. Once the belt is out turn it inside out and make sure the teeth to the belt are all there. ( if they are not there will be burn marks.) If it is missing teeth simply replace that belt and you're back in business.

If it is not the reset and it is not the belt, some of those machines had bad switches in the handle. You will find that there is a circut board in the top handle which sends power to the vaccum motor but not the brushroller motor making it seem as if everything is running just fine. You will not be able to buy just the circut board, they come as an assembly and include the whole handle. Unfortunately there is no good way for someone unexperienced to tell wether there is power to the brushroller motor or not. In this case a Hoover service center would be able to assist you though you may end up paying a small labor fee.

Good luck!

Drive and brushes stopped


Look for a missing belt that may have burned off or broken. Was there a burning smell at some point before the roller quit turning? If so, the belt must be replaced. I would also look at the ends of the roller to see if there is any string, hair, etc. that might be binding the roller that needs to be removed.

as the hose fits into the base (if i am correct) the power at the base should be fine, make sure the base is clean and free from blockage, you say the brush doesn't spin, has the belt broken, if so replace it, (very cheap) and only a couple of screws to undo, the roller not rotating will effect the power of suction dramatically, start from there and see how you go if i have helped please rate me
