Hoover SteamVac Spinscrub F5899-100 makes loud noise & smells bad

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

SOURCE: LOUD NOISE FROM HOOVER POWERMAX ii

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!

SOURCE: vacume brush won't turn but belt is not broken

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.

SOURCE: Dyson Animal DC07 making a horrible noise!

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.

SOURCE: hoover steamvac f5899-100 died, will not come on.

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.

Machine wont run what is the problem


take it to your local vac shop. Could be a bad plug, a bad switch, or possibly the motor is bad. Not as likely a motor if you didn't experience a burning smell or loud noises first.

Hoover steam vac spin vac making loud noise sparks flying


The only source for electrical sparks is the motor so it must be checked. Bad motor brushes or a broken wire are possible causes. Do not use in this condition.

Why is my hoover spin brush making a loud noise when i turn it on


Check for clogs starting with the air passageway at the bottom.
A piece of TV cable or similar works well as you have to snake
it in. Check all hoses, Are the filters clean? If you can, remove
the brush bar and belt then turn vacuum on. If the vacuum is
no longer making a loud noise the side bearings on the brush
bar are the problem...replace the bar or spray a bit of WD40-
if you do that wipe well before you vacuum. Finally....if the
vacuum was still loud with the brush bar off...you have a motor
problem and that could be expensive.

Regards.

It got really loud, and floods water when turned on.


your loud noise would be motor related. definitely shop service required. the water issue is different, this model is gravity fed.

The motor is makng a terrible noise - smells like it is burning -how do I check to see if it is a belt?


There are no belts on the SteamVac series. If you are smelling anything, it is nearly positive you have a vacuum motor problem.

Hoover SteamVac quit working.


there is no reset button to this machine. in some cases if the machine stops or makes a weird noise or a smell like electrical, most likely it's the motor that went out or you could just have a switch that went out. if you didn't have any of these things happen, then take it to your local vac shop to get an est. done to see if would be worthe replacing the broken things or would it be better to buy another machine. hope this help's

Was using the SteamVac and it just stopped doing


Bad news! The humming is the pump so it is still good, but that means either the ac to dc converter is bad or the motor went up. The good news, neither would be your fault.
