Inside where the air is blowing through spins a a wind vane that is on a worm gear, that gear gets rusty when it sits for a long time, I made the mistake of just oiling it, and not removing all the rust, it ate up the plastic gear it turns against, you must tyake it all apart and really clean that metal worm and all the rust, then it will turn the brushes again.. There is no belt, and nothing should broken yet at this point if you clean it good. I am now hunting for a new plastic gear, it worked for about a month before it screwed it up.. so clean it good. it is also possible you gear is bad as well I suppose... the wind turbine should spin freely, clean and lube if it is not.

My Roomba says to clean the brushes when the brushes are already clean. Is there something to take apart to check? I have already taken the brushes out. I don't know the model number, I think it's the 500...


turn the unit upside down and remove the bottom pan should be 4 or 5 screws depending on the model.

next remove the 4 screws that hold the brush cartridge and pull the whole brush assembly out.

using a can of compressed air clean that whole assembly out there is a motor there so don't spray any cleaner on it. If there is surface grime you can use a clorox wipe or a damp cloth to get it all off.

this process should take about 10 minutes to do it properly use the straw that came with the compressed air to get in between the plastic shell and get all the dust trapped inside there.

make sure there is no dust trapped in the gears that drive the brushes.

put it all together and it should work.

My Hoover steam vac dual v's brushes will not spin and the square that the peg goes into wont spin either. There is suction but it is making a loud noise.


sometime when the brush is not turning their are less resistance to the motor, so it will turn allot faster than normal. The turbine gear assembly which connected to the brush assembly probably broken, all the gears are made out plastic and they can easily break,strip or worned over period of usage. the assembly cost around 20 bucks and it not that hard to replace and it not that hard to take it apart, just remember what goes where. I wonldn't surprise when taking the vacuum apart as you observed closely and inspect the brush unit and the turbine gear assembly you might easily spot what broken and need replacing. hope that help some; and if you don't want to fiddle with it, your local vacuum repair guy can probably do it for less than 40 bucks. you can go on-line vacuum parts.com

Brushes don't work on my hoover steam vac v2


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.

Brushes not rotating on my Hoover Steam Vac Dual


The brushes are all connected to a single shaft. This square shaft is connected to 2 sets of gears and then another shaft which is turned by an impeller (suction from the vaccum pump is used to turn the impell and thus the brushes). There are 2 bearings that the impeller shaft turns on. It's likely these are rusted up and just need a bit of WD 40. Took me 30 min to take apart, lube, and put back together. Remember, its plastic. If things won't come apart, look for another screw. Mine was a brand new unit and the top bearing was rusted.

Bissell upright vac, brush on bottom does not rotate


The front brush motor will not engage until the power is turned on and the handle is in the down position. In the upright position the brush motor wont engage. Typical faults will be the belt is broken and needs replacing or the fornt brush motor needs replacing.

Check the brush block to make sure that the shaft going into the turbine hasn't broken off, if it is ok, then the turbine is bad and should be replaced.
