SOURCE: Problems with the Hoover Steam vac Heated carpet cleaner

This happens when the filter on the inside of the lid for the dirty water tank is pushed all of the way up. You need to leave a 1/4 in. gap from the top to the top of the filter.

SOURCE: Belt replacement Hoover carpet cleaner

Hoover steamvacs don't use belts. If the brushes are not turning, pull the brush block out, turn the machine on and see if the square hole where the brush block was, is turning. If not then the turbine is bad. Sometimes you can take the turbine apart and clean it out. most times I have found , replace it.

SOURCE: I have a hoover steamvac

One cause is that the recovery tank lid isn't on correctly and not sealing. If there is a foam filter on the inside of the lid, make sure it has a 1/4 in. gap from the top of the lid. There is another filter, from the bottom, it has a red frame, pull it out far enough to clean it. May have a bad turbine, or the shaft on the top of the brush block broke off. You have a 1 years warranty on this, I would take it in to a warranty repair shop and get it repaired.

SOURCE: Hoover steam carpet cleaner brushes dont spin

There is a plastic cover over the spinner indicator. If you take the plastic cover off there is also a little filter in that area (almost like the spinner is on the floor and the filter is on the wall). If you clean this filter it may start working again. I had the same problem before and it worked for me. I found the info in the user's manual for my model. Hope this works for you as well.

Hoover carpet cleaner brushes wont spin


First i would be checking for a mechanical restriction stopping the brushes from spinning like hair or similar wrapped around the brushes and jamming them, if all is clear it could be a belt broken or slipping, a stripped gear or an electrical fault, depends on what type of drive system the brushes on your particular vacuume cleaner uses. Hope this is helpful.

On hoover steam carpet cleaner, the brushes do not rotate on low or high settings.


Follow these steps if the Brushes Fail to Spin
•If the brushes on your Hoover carpet cleaner fail to spin, there may be a problem---some sort of blockage---with the suction or with the belt that turns the brushes.
Turn the Hoover carpet cleaner over, and inspect the brush area. Debris, strings, or pet hair may be tangled in the rollers, keeping them from turning. Use a pair of scissors to cut away any obstructions in this area. Flip the Hoover carpet cleaner back over, and turn it on to see if cleaning the rollers has solved the problem.
To check the belt, turn the Hoover carpet cleaner over, and remove the bottom plate screw with a Phillips head screwdriver. Investigate the belt area to see if it is broken or has somehow slipped off. If it is broken, you can order a part from Hoover.com or from many of the other online parts stores.
When the belt arrives, simply slide it on in place of the broken belt, reattach the bottom plate and turn the Hoover carpet cleaner right-side up. Turn it on to test your solution.

The brush won't spin on my hoover shampooer


This machine has an airdriven turbine that drives the brushes. The turbine needs to be replace because it is spinning on a steel bushing which gets rusty from all the water going through it.

This unit uses a turbine assy to turn the brushes. The brushes could have something jamming them. Remove the brush unit, it is held on 2 spring hooks 1 on each side. The brush unit is driven thru a 1/4" square post, only one brush is driven and it drives the next then it drives the next etc. If something is jammed in these gears it will stop the entire brush assy. The turbine assy could be bad, but I would check the brush assy first.

My hoover carpet scrubber the brushes won


(1) Remove the brush block and assure the presence of the square drive pin on top of one brush. It should be about 1/4 inch square, two inches long to connect o the drive mechanism.

(2) Remove and clean the filter screen from the base, behind the brushes. Squeeze the two red tabs together, and pull down from the base. Clean the hiar/debris from the screen.

(3) Assure the Brush Speed knob on the hood is NOT set to the OFF position.

If this is new, get it replaced under warranty. Take your model number, serial number, proof of purchase and the brush block with you, or you may be able to do it at hoover.com.
