The reason the brushes are not spinning is because the belt is slipping, the belt is the bad that connects to the brush to a shaft that makes it spin. Next problam is it is probobly clogged. so water is not going through all the way

The spin brushes on my hoover steam And vac don't


Either the pin on the brushes that attaches to the motor shaft is broken, or the motor is dead. Did you check the switch on the front of the unit to make sure it wasn't turned off?

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.

MY HOOVER DUAL V STEAM VAC CARPET CLEANER BRUSHES WILL NOT SPIN! WHY?


There are three things to check:

Is the switch on the hood for brush speed set to full, or may it be set to OFF?

Remove the brush block from under the unit by pulling it down and unlatch each side. Is there a 1/4 inch square drive pin on one brush, about two inches long? It connects the brush to the drive mechanism.

Lastly, the drive mechanism in the base may be bound-up, and not spinning. If so, the unit needs disassembled to repair or replaced.

Help. The brushes on my Steam Vac Spin Scrub


If you don't have the user's manual for the machine, here it is:

Check your system for any obstructions that could possibly causing the problem. Also, remove the brushes and see if there's a problem between the brushes and the motor.

Spin brush removal


Brush Disassembly Hoover STEAM VAC Owners Manual F9514-900 (F9514900) does not
explain how to take the brush assembly apart. The instructions are as
follows:

Figure 1 shows the key

features. There are two

clear plastic outer pieces

which are held onto the

white inner piece with 3

tabs each. The clear

plastic tabs go underneath

the corresponding white

extended tabs on the white

plastic inner piece.

Figure 2 shows where the

screwdriver is inserted

(flat blade) and gently

pushed down while pulling

the clear plastic outer

piece away from the inner

white piece.

Figure 3 shows assembled

unit. Note extended brush

axle goes in center, which

fits into the female drive

unit on the shampooer.

I used the hose nozzle out

on the lawn to direct high

velocity water stream

trying to get the hair out

of the brushes. Hair and

fuzz remarkably entrained

in brushes, but I got 90% of it out.

Hoover steam vac, brushes won't rotate, have cleaned filter by brushes, removed brushes and they rotate okay when off steam vac, tried to ajust level for carpet cleaning and brushes still don't move


Check to see if the shaft on the brush block hasn't broken off. Otherwise it is the turbine that drives the brushes and is either clogged up inside or needs to be replaced.

If this is a Hoover Steam vac, the turbine which drives the brushes is bad. If not a Hoover, then what is it, they are different, need brand and model number.

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.
