brushes do not rotate on Hoover steam-vac upright

Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure.
This also happened to my own Hoover Steam Vac and there was a broken part that connected to the brush assm that I had to replace, it has been a while but once they replaced the part everything worked just fine and it was not that expensive and I am still using the vacuum still to date and it is working just fine. I believe it was something like the switch for the brushes on/off switch or the part was part of the handle assm. Check you owner’s manual for the exploded view on the vacuum or also check with your local vac dealer. So if you need further assistance, 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.

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: hoover steam vac scrubbing brushes won't rotate -

The Hoover SteamVac's are notorious for this exact problem. There are several things that can be causing this problem.

First, what you'll need to do is take the brush block out of the machine. To do this there are 4 clips on the brush block. You will need to turn the machine upside down, and pull down on the brush block to where it won't pull out any farther. There are 4 clips, 2 on front, and 2 in the rear. (See picture, I have circled one of the clips in red). Simply press these clips at the same time, and pull the brush block out of the machine. I'd say that 60% of the time that I see this problem, the main issue is that the brushes just need to be cleaned. If you have pets in the home, a lot of the time the pet hair will just be lodged inside the brushes, will prevent them from spinning. Use a pressurized water hose *(one with a spray nozzle is ideal) and spray each brush with water to dislodge any pet hair. You should be able to get these brushes spinning when you spray them. Spray each brush until the brushes are spinning pretty fast. Re-insert the brushes into the machine, and test to see if the cleaning has fixed your problem. If the cleaning still fails to fix the problem, take the brushes back out of the machine.

One you have the brushes out of the machine, the first thing you should look at the brush stem that goes into the turbine inside the machine. This is the green pole pictured in middle of the brush block. Examine this pole to determine if the top of it has broken off. It should exactly how the picture shows it. Make sure that the plastic pole has not broken.

If the pole is broken, you will simply need to replace the brush block assembly. The model F5914-900 uses Hoover 5 Brush SpinScrub Brush Block Part # 48437022.

Here's a direct link to this part on our GoVacuum.com storefront:
http://www.govacuum.com/hoovsteambru.html

If the pole is not damaged, the next thing to try is to turn the machine on while you have the brushes out. Step on the handle release pedal so the SteamVac handle is lowered, and not in the upright position, as there is an internal switch that turns the brushes off when the machine is in the upright position. Now look inside the machine where the pole goes in. There is a green, square shaped female receptacle. This is actually the internal turbine that spins the brush block. Make sure that the switch for the brushes on the top of the machine is turned to "Rotating Brush Speed Hi". Turn the machine on.

If you saw the female receptacle where the brush pole is inserted was spinning, then your turbine is fine. If this part is not spinning, then you will need to replace your turbine.

I hope this helps you with your problem. Please feel free request a clarification request form here on Fixya if you have any questions, I'm always happy to answer follow up questions you might have.

SOURCE: brushes won't rotate on hoover steam vac

The brushes turn by the airflow from the vacuum suction turning a turbine motor to spin the brushes. First try to spin the brushes by hand. If they won't turn it usually means the brushes are clogged with hair and debris or need replaced or the turbine could be seized up. If the brushes won't spin reach under the brushes and push the little tabs and remove the brush block asssembly from the machine. If the brushes spin freely after you remove them from the machine then that means that most likely the turbine is seized and will need to be repaced. If the turbine is not seized you may simply just have a clogged filter screen. Most steam vacs have a red screen filter either on top or underneath the machine. On the top it is under a little clear plastic cover that you have to pry off before you can pull the screen out to clean it. If it's underneath you can pull it out and clean it.
