Question about Hoover Vacuums
Posted by Anonymous on
The bearings in the turbine are prone to seizing because of moisture. Take it to your local vacuum repair shop and have them repair it. At my shop we re-grease the bearings and it's better than new. If there is too much damage the turbine will need to be replaced

First do they turn easily by hand? Usually there is a plastic shaft that drives these brushes. If they are "seated" properly, the unit will not turn. The shaft is usually a "male" and fits into a "female" opening. If it is installing correctly, then I would see if any belts are off.

There is no belt on the Hoover SpinScrub. The brushes are turned by an air driven turbine. To test the turbine, insert a flat screwdriver into the square hole that the pin on the brush assembly normally fits into, and see if the fitting turns. If it doesn't turn, the turbine has seized up and will need to be replaced.

On those models the brushes are turned by suction.
1. Check the lower tank to be sure its completely closed and sealed.
2. Check the lower tank to be sure the tools filler plate is in place (if you used the tools recently)
3. If both 1&2 ok, manually turn the brushes, if they do not turn freely you may have a stuck turbine or bad brush block.
4. Take the brush block out by releasing the tabs on each corner being careful not to break them.
5. Place a large flat blade screwdriver in the square drive hole that drives the brushes under the machine. Gently turn. It should turn slowly with some resistance. If it turns slowly it is ok. If it turns with no resistance it may be bad as well. If it will not you may be able to break it loose with some even pressure being careful not to strip the hole. If it will not turn or makes a lot of noise replace the Turbine assembly.
6. If the brush block has a broken drive shaft or will not turn replace the brush block.
Here is what that brush block should look like.
