Re: Hoover Steam Vac Model #5899-100

There is a single screw at the top of that shield (under the dirty water tank) and then there is 2 screws on the bottom that you unscrew and the shield will slide right off and you wipe it out and put it back on.

My hoover spin brush steam vac brushes wont spin

Unplug vac turn it over and check for belts that drive the brushes
They are located at the very end of the brush They are probably missing
or they snapped and sitting in the housing somewhere. If you ar mechanically inclined not very difficult to replace. While you are at it clean all the hair and fibers that usually accumulate around the brush bushings
That is usually the culprit that wears down the belts
have fun

How do I clean out the suction side of a Hoover steam-vac Model#f6020-900. I took all the screws out and still cant get it apart.I vacuum before using it, but it still seems to find more hair.

These don't come apart. Hoover makes a thin long tool that will allow you to stick up into this suction side to clean it or use a long piece of galvanized metal strip to slide up into it and clear away the hair.

Steam vac won't **** water

check to see if the recovery tank lid is on correctly. if this is not on, the machine will not **** up the dirty water from the carpet. all you will get is suction that is chopy when it comes up instead of more like a flow.

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

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

unit. Note extended brush

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.

Hoover steam vac not sucking water back up i have super wet floors and no water in recovery tank

I think it is the gasket on top and bottom of the plastic chanel that takes the water up to the dirty water holding tank , Part of the rubber gasket is missing on both the top and bottom. This will alow
air to come in and thus you loose the suction to empty the water into the dirty water bin. My unit is hoover steam vac model F60220-900. I need to know where to get the gaskets.

Hoover steam cleaner F5805 no manual

the plastic wand helps, but I have found that when I pick the entire unit up and take it to the sink and run water in the top of the plastic cover it cleans it out better than anything. I get alot of pet hair up also and it looks awful -- but the wand only cleans out the hair -- the dirt needs to be flushed out some time too

Hoover Steam Vac Spin Scrub Carpet Cleaner won't...
Posted by hoofbeats1 on Jul 01, 2008
My machine is a little more than a year old. I have used it about 5 times. It started leaking the third time I used it. The fourth time I took it out, the brushes would not spin (I did clean them and rinse them after use each time).
Now the engine screams and won't **** anything up. Do you have any suggestions? My last Hoover Steam Vac was great and lasted for 3 years! Hi,
I have a Hoover Dual V SteamVac F7425-900 that the brushes won't spin. The lint screen is clean & the brushes switch is in the on position.
It dispenses & sucks up the cleaning solution & water; just no brush action. Help

I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. The only thing that I can recommend is that you may have a bad switch, some vacs may have a broken belt or the drive mechanism inside the Hoover Dual V SteamVac F7425-900 in or by the brush assm section and is need of repair. Please check the trouble shooting section of the owner’s manual if you’re needing help and to save money. If you don’t have one then contact the Hoover factory cust serv. So, please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or in the yellow pages, or contact the factory phone number or website to further assist you with your questions.
