There are 7 torx head screws to remove in the top plastic housing. 5 are in the perimeter and two are "hidden". One is under the power/cord winder panel which pops off in an upward diredtion. and one is under the cloth filter on top of the motor, inside the bag compartment. Take out those 7 and lift the plastic top panel off !

SOURCE: I am trying to disassemble

There's a tab at the back of the rail that needs to be released. Turn the vacuum on it's side, slip the tip of a standard screwdrive into the space between the rail and the back of the vacuum, and tap lightly with a hammer. Tap toward the front of the vacuum a few times until the rail is far enough forward to be slid out fairly easily. As a side note, the rubber covers do not need to be removed to do this.

Can't get the Sebo S-class filtration off to replace it. I bent the wire down, didn't move much. I tried to pull it off but, it didn't budge.


The filtration cone just pulls out. That's why there's a looped piece of plastic on it at the base of it. The spring wire keeps it in place so that the door can be locked back on.

I sucked up a piece of plastic. Removed plastic.


This style machine picks up the dirt/debris with the roller, sends it through a fan and into the bag/cup. This is a very common problem since a plastic fan turning at 2000 rpm meeting anything hard is going to cause damage. (Loose Change, toys, anything small) This fan creates your suction and when it is damaged it creates none, it also is the "noisy" part of any vacuum and becomes extremely noisy when damaged.

To Replace this part:
  1. Remove hood (4 screws underneath)
  2. Remove handle assembly ( one bolt through handle and slide off)
  3. remove the belt
  4. Remove the 2 brackets on each side of the motor that hold it in place. (4 screws)
  5. Lift motor off base assy.
  6. Remove rubber cuff around top of motor assy.
  7. Remove the 6 screws on large size of motor assy. and remove cap.
  8. Turn fan (or whats left of it) off of spindle by holding belt drive spindle on oppisite side of the motor.
  9. Replace fan and reassemble.
You can also take this to most any Hoover authorized service center, they would have the parts in stock and could probably do it for less than 50 dollars. Check their dealer locator for a local center.

Best of Luck!

The handle remains in the upight position


Spray some sillicone spray or furniture polish spray at the bottom where the handle adjuster slider can be seen by tipping the cleaner forward. Its usually a plastic bar that should slide. It can become dirty over time or just need lubrication.

The brushes stopped turning


just repaired mine today same problem.
Turbine drive shaft which drives two sets of plastic gears and which in turn make the scrub brushes rotate has sealed ball bearings and I guess from an evidently poor design moisture some how entered plastic gear casing and the sealed bearings froze up which evidently aren't sealed all that well. Anyway (turbine drive after easy removal from unit 8 screws on bottom one on top can be disassembled by removing 4 screws around gear casing allowing access to the plastic drive gears and the bearings) You can make a decision from there of whether or not a new replacement turbine is a better way to go.
The entire turbine unit can be purchased online for a very reasonable price if you look around the Web.

Spin brush removal


Brush Disassembly Hoover STEAM VAC Owners Manual F9514-900 (F9514900) does not
explain how to take the brush assembly apart. The instructions are as
follows:

Figure 1 shows the key

features. There are two

clear plastic outer pieces

which are held onto the

white inner piece with 3

tabs each. The clear

plastic tabs go underneath

the corresponding white

extended tabs on the white

plastic inner piece.

Figure 2 shows where the

screwdriver is inserted

(flat blade) and gently

pushed down while pulling

the clear plastic outer

piece away from the inner

white piece.

Figure 3 shows assembled

axle goes in center, which

fits into the female drive

unit on the shampooer.

I used the hose nozzle out

on the lawn to direct high

velocity water stream

trying to get the hair out

of the brushes. Hair and

fuzz remarkably entrained

in brushes, but I got 90% of it out.

With the head flipped upside down, take a flat tipped screw driver and carefully pry up the rollers on the front the head. Underneath, you'll find a screw. Remove the screw under each roller, and the front cover will come off with ease. The rollers are just friction fit.
