Question about Hoover F5906-900 Upright Steam Vacuum
Try removing the brush cartridge from the steamcleaner, and then put the end of a flat screwdriver into the square hole in which the cartridge connects to. Spin the screwdriver clockwise or counterclockwise if possible; if you can't, keep trying. Mine became jammed-up somehow, but doing this solved the problem and now the brushes spin again.

More likely your belt is broke or there is something stuck in the brush that is preventing it from spinning.

Above is the link to all hoovers owner manuals, you just have to pick your exact model from the list.
As for the brush not spinning in most cases the belt gets burned through when something snags it. In this case you just open up the housing by removing the phillips screws and changing the belt. Walmart carries Hoover belts (generic) 2 belts in a pack for $2.24, You can't beat that.
If there is a separate motor for the brushes as apposed to the belt type drives, Check to see if there is power going to the brush motor using a Volt meter. If power(120 volts ac) is reaching the motor and it still dose not spin the motor is burned out or the brushes in the motor need to be replaced.
And in some models I've seen the brushes are driven by a turbo powered by the vacuum pressure generated by the vacuum it's self. In this case dis-assemble the head and look for a foriegn object lodged in the turbo or mechanism somewhere.
I hope you found this information of some use. If you need further assistance feel free to contact me directly. I love helping people. This is one of my favorite sites.
Thank You, George
