Question about Hoover F7210-900 SteamVac V2 Upright Wet/Dry Vacuum

Hoover F7210-900 SteamVac

Just bought the above mentioned steam vac.
It was a reconditioned vac that (I was told the brush moter was replaced)
So, I fill it with water.... Turn it on...and no water comes out....

You think the prior owner might have burned something else out other than the brush moter?

Thank you in advance.... I am taking it back to the place I bought it.... Just wanted to sound intelligent with a suggestion when I take it back.

Before you take it back, check the filter inside the lid of the recovery tank, if it is all of the way to the top, it will cause problems, it needs a 1/4 in. gap from the top. Might be also that the plunger in the handle is pushing all of the way down so as to release the water.

The Hoover steam vac dual v does not spin its brushes and I dont know how to dismantel it to view the belt .

There is no belt on the steam vac - it operates on air flow. Remove the brush and insert a flat screwdriver into the square hole. If it does not turn, the turbine has seized up and must be replaced. Remember that the brush will not turn unless the lower tank is in place, and the handle is tilted back.

New Hoover Steam Vac's brushes do not spin

The brushes are turning by an air driven turbine. The turbine has a pivot bushing made of steel inside of it that gets rusty because of the water that is running through it. The turbine will have to be replaced. You can find a genuine hoover replacement part by following the link below.

Hoover steam vac model f7425-900 filter is

The brush system on this model has a poor engineering design in that the brushes are running off an air turbine, which uses a steel bushing to spin the turbine which gets rusty from the moisture when the machine is being used. No long term solver. I would replace the machine with a Dirt Devil Platinum Force model

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.

Check the brush block to make sure that the shaft going into the turbine is ok, if it is, then the turbine will have to be replaced.

If you used any other cleaning solution other than Hoover, your Steam Cleaner will develop deposits in the turbine that drives the brushes. What happens is this:
Users pour other store bought brand cleaners in the reservoir to clean. Then they store the Hoover Steam Vac. While sitting in storage, the residue dries in the turbine and develops hard deposites, which ruins it. It will cost you about $100 to have the Hoover Store repair.
