Re: Replacement motor

The manual only show one wire from the motor going to the switch, the other going to the cord, then the ground wire. I would wire it the way your old motor was, could be that some models maybe were 2 speed and the other wire would be used for that. Either that or the wrong motor was in the box, it is the right part number (43576197 is Hoover number)

Hoover F5915-900 brushes will not rotate

The motor rotates the bar. My guess would be that the rubber belt that goes from the motor to the belt has fallen off the bar , broke, or the bar is not seated properly. GOOD LUCK FRIEND.

You have a black and white and green wire. Green is ground white is neutral, black is hot . Should say on the motor either L1 = black wire. L2 = white wire , G = Green wire or it say H = black wire, N = white wire , G or the symbol for ground = green wire

Brush on vacuum stop spining (HOOVER U-5753-960) Thank You

A worn out carbon brushes of vacuum will cause that motor spinning stop. Because brush no longer capable of pushing a stator or rotor hence electromagnet windings motor will not meet each other.
Have a brush replacement be customize in a nearby machine shop or find brush replacement on hardware store.
Look also for the possibility of loose wiring of the vacuum, check it also.
Thanks for asking.

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.

Machine wont turn on

Either the motor is fried or the belt is burnt. If you can't hear it turn on, then check for any fuses that could have blown. They will be glass tube type. If fuse is good, motor or power supply could be bad. You can test them with voltmeter.
