Question about Hoover F5906-900 Upright Steam Vacuum

1 Answer

Hoover F5906-900 motor sounds very loud.

Imagine hearing a diesel engine run at idle from inside a home, then hearing it right next to the motor. That is the way this SteamVac sounds, we went a month or so without using it and it sounds alot louder.

Any thoughts?

Bearings in the motor are bad, you will have to replace the motor.

Water want come out

Clean sand granules out of the motor! the problem appears to be sand granules from the sand filter jamming the "pulse motor", unplug take the water cart off, unscrew the back cover, the one with the label (6 crosspoint screws) beware the 2 long ones holding the end! inside the cover there is a small bulge, next the pipe,, unscrew 3 screws these it reveals the motor squeeze the pipe clip slide back pull forward, to release motor blow through,the tiny hole backwards, until clear, you may have to use a blunt toothpick! to release, the stuck granules...Blow, blow, then reassemble

Woundering if i have a belt problem brushes dont run at all

No belt.Check out the other solution.The brushes are driven by a turbine that is driven by suction from the motor.Sounds like the inside of the turbine needs lubrication so it needs to be either spun free or dismantled

Burning smell and loud noise from hoover steamvac f5897-900

Perform general maintenance - cleaning filters,etc. If it still exists, take it apart and check the motor... If the motor is sooty on the copper coils inside, then it's had it's day. You could try and buy a replacement motor, but typically, its cheaper just to get a new hoover.

Hoover SteamVac quit working.

there is no reset button to this machine. in some cases if the machine stops or makes a weird noise or a smell like electrical, most likely it's the motor that went out or you could just have a switch that went out. if you didn't have any of these things happen, then take it to your local vac shop to get an est. done to see if would be worthe replacing the broken things or would it be better to buy another machine. hope this help's

Was using the SteamVac and it just stopped doing

Bad news! The humming is the pump so it is still good, but that means either the ac to dc converter is bad or the motor went up. The good news, neither would be your fault.

My brushes don't rotate on the on position. I have a SteamVac V2.

Do you hear the motor for the beater bar brush running? If so, you'll probably need to replace the brush drive belt.. If not.. you may have a broken wire suppling power to the brush motor.. or the switch is bad.. Hope that helps..

There some screws off from the bottom, remove the top cover, the turbine has 2 screws on the front of it and there 2 long screws you take off from the bottom, remove the tubing and it should come loose. Some times you can take it apart and clean the inside parts and it will work ok, if that doesn't do it then you have to replace it.

There is a switch, but could be a bad cord, or the motor went bad.
