Question about Hoover F5520 SteamVac Duo Upright Wet Washer
I have a Hoover SteamVac Duo and the Invensys PI pump is not working, I will like to know if it can be easy fix or where can I buy a new pump, I already search the web but the only thing I found was in the UK and is for 230V 50HZ (https://www.vendingspareparts.co.uk/product.asp?urn=8361&c_urn=155). I already opened but din't found anithing broken, all the seals are ok and when the Vac is running I can see the piston going back and forward, but I don't have a clue how it works.

The correct belt is a 38528035. If the belt does not have this number printed on it, it is a generic belt and probably the wrong one. The pulley on the transmission is "convex" because this pulley design keeps the belt running in the middle. (a belt will always try to "climb up a hill") If the motor shaft and the pulley are not aligned properly, the belt will constantly throw off. This can be a result of a bad motor mount (located inside the motor compartment.) The motor shaft end has a rubber cover that absorbs vibration and keeps the motor positioned squarely. The handle could also be loose on the pivot. It is held down by two metal clamps that screw securely to the bottom, holding the handle on to the base and allowing for the handle to pivot backwards. This problem can be difficult to diagnose and I have had many in my shop for repair. It takes a seasoned and experienced repairman to find a solution to this problem, in most cases. The disadvantage I have here is that I cannot see your machines to inspect all the various things that effect the belt alignment. I hope that some of this information will help.

Your problem is inside the vacuum hose where they have installed a small coiled hose that carries water to the smaller power head for upholstery. After taking this apart I found the inner smaller coiled hose was broken at 2 different places. A very poor design and poor quality material. The hose looked like it was rotted. This could be from old detergent left in the line or maybe the wrong detergent. A job to get it apart but if you remove the three screws that hold the side plate over the electrical you can block that hose off and the machine will work on floors only as the water to the power head is terminated.

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.

The bearing on the inside of the turbine is rusted. You will have to take the hood of the unit and unscrew the black piece that has to rub hoses going to it. Then take apart the black turbine. Inside you will find 2 white gears and a small 1/2inch bearing. Use wd40 to uncease the bearing. After this put the take pliers and make sure the metal post will turn. Spray wd40 on everything you see including Hoover for making such ****. After this put put everything back together. Now the best thing to do is get some automotive bearing grease and put a large amount on bearing and and other metal parts. Put everthing back together. Clean any hair off the brushes and you are ready. Now the bad news if your gears are worn you will have to replace the turbine. Go to an internet website and the part number will be 91001019. I know all this because I spent 6 years working for Hoover and they found it cheaper to send our jobs overseas.
