Question about Hoover F7431-900 SteamVac Vacuum
Hoover spin -scrub machine, brushes do not spin
Hello. there is a little window by the brush control. if you open it up, you can see that there is maybe some lint covering it. scrape that off, and try again. make sure your lever is set to brushes and realease the handle release. if this doesn't work, then you probably have a problem with your gear box. this can only be serviced at a repair shop. I hope this helps. Let me know! Thanks, Renevacdoc

To fix mine: I removed the brush assembly, showing that when the machine was powered on, the square of the drive gear was not spinning. I used a flat heat screwdriver and inserted it into the square, then gently worked it back and forth until the turbine was free. Then I squirted household oil down into the hole before replacing the brushes. Has been working fine ever since.

SOURCE: brushes don't spin
try this please : switch the carpet/bare floor dial back & forth 5 times, ending on carpet. Tilt the handle back as if to vacuum upright & lay the vacuum on its side so it is resting on the side opposite the carpet/bare floor dial. Turn the vacuum on.
or try this also if the above suggestion didn't work :
Maybe the belt is broke. You will have to replace the belt before the roller can spin. You must have run over something in the carpeting like string or whatever to have it break. Happens all the time. Get several replacement belts to keep as spares while you're at it as nothing is worse then having to vacuum and no spare belts.
please rate !

Take the brush block out, is the shaft still on it or did it break off, if it broke off, then replace the brush block. If it is there and you can turn the brushes by hand, then the turbine is bad. Sometimes you can clean it out, most time you have to replace it.

If you don't have the user's manual for the machine, here it is:
Check your system for any obstructions that could possibly causing the problem. Also, remove the brushes and see if there's a problem between the brushes and the motor.

There is a filter on the front right hand side of my F5871-900 Hoover. If you remove the plastic covering and clean that filter (wet finger may do), you're Hoover will begin spinning again!
