Question about Vacuums
I have a Hoover SteamVac Spinscrub F5899-100, and having problems with it. While using it, it started making a very loud awful noise. I figured it was a broken belt, so I turned it off, and we looked but see no belt. We took cover off motor, but see nothing wrong. Still makes very loud awful sound and smells bad. I need to finish my cleaning...please help. Thanks, Teri

These vacs can stop up in almost inaccessible places. That sound means that it has stopped up somewhere and the electric motor is in a strain. Keep it running like that long enough and the motor is toast. I have one that seems to prefer the hose area where it goes by the motor and into the bag. The tube from the motor to the bag also is prone to stop up. To take these apart requires that you start at the beater bar area and work you way inward. In certain areas if you look closely, you'll see little arrows pointing to the screws. These are the ones that will allow you to get closer to the innards of these. When you get to where the motor is, look for blockages from the attachment hose. It takes only small items to completely block it off which will effect performance from both the beater bar/normal intake and also from use of the hose itself. The b***ards can be a pain to keep functional. I've personally removed rather sizeable wads of dog hair from mine that mucked up the works rather than went into the bag. Belts for the beater bar are notoriously short lived in these as well. When they break, the vacuum is only good as a floor sweeper. Stock up on both belts and bags for these. Good luck!

The belt is probably stretched and won't drive the brush roll. Also check the brush roll, the ends should turn freely, if no, then replace it also.

Ensure plug is not in the socket.
remove the guard from around the roller on base of Dyson by turning 3 screws 90 Deg anti clock wise.
unclip belt from the metal spindle from the motor.
Pull out the roller.
Pull the end of the roller out.
They do not screw, they just pull out.
Clean the muck out from inside the roller ends.
Put end caps back on.
put belt on and thread through the slot.
put belt back on to motor spindle.
Ta da it stops squeeling.

There is no fuse on a hoover steanvac, but it may have a ac/dc converter. I do not have a model list in front of me but if it does then this probally went bad. Another option is it may have overheated give the machine 12 hours to reset internally and try it again.
