Check the brush block to make sure that the shaft going into the turbine hasn't broken off, if it is ok, then the turbine is bad and should be replaced.

Brushes won't rotate on hoover steam vac. I have removed them and cleaned.

The brushes turn by the airflow from the vacuum suction turning a turbine motor to spin the brushes. First try to spin the brushes by hand. If they won't turn it usually means the brushes are clogged with hair and debris or need replaced or the turbine could be seized up. If the brushes won't spin reach under the brushes and push the little tabs and remove the brush block asssembly from the machine. If the brushes spin freely after you remove them from the machine then that means that most likely the turbine is seized and will need to be repaced. If the turbine is not seized you may simply just have a clogged filter screen. Most steam vacs have a red screen filter either on top or underneath the machine. On the top it is under a little clear plastic cover that you have to pry off before you can pull the screen out to clean it. If it's underneath you can pull it out and clean it.

The brushes won't turn. I have turned the switch

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 gear will have to be replaced. You can access the turbine gear by removing the hood. You can find a genuine hoover replacement part by following the link below. Just find the model number of your Hoover Steam vac.

It is part # 43191008

Hi, i have a hoover steam vac agilty. the brushes on the bottom front quit spinning. they are not locked up as i can freely turn them by fingers. is there a belt that i need to replace? if so, how do i get...

The brushes on all hoover steam vacs are air opperated it uses the suction of the vacuum motor to spin a turbine and in turn spin the brushes. Most likely that path of air is clogged with hair or carpet fuzz. On the top of the machine there is a little clear cover undr that cover there is a screen which keeps that hair for entering the turbine kinda like you clothes dryer lint trap. Take the cover off and clean that screen this should help. If you have any other questions or need parts for that machine or any other visit

The brushes will not turn. How do I open the unit to put the belt back on?

Hoover doesn't use belts on their steam cleaners. Either the shaft that is on top of the brush block broke off, or the turbine is bad. The turbine is what turns the brushs.

The brushes do not rotate

The brushs are driven by a turbine, if not turning, it may be bad. You can take it apart and try to clean it out, or just replace it. Also pull out the brush block and see if the shaft that goes up into the turbine is broken off, itis broke, then replace the brush block.

There are screws on the bottom to remove, then near the back on each side, the is a catch to release. Before you turn it over, there is a screw where the water intake is near the top to remove.

Steam Vac model: F7425-900

I had the same problem 2 weeks ago.I took apart the turbine and found that there are two bearings that hold the main gear that were rusted fast. I put some 3in1 oil on them and kept on trying to break them free by turning them,it worked great. Just keep putting oil on and turn them. It beats buying a new turbine! Just pay attention on how you took it apart. Its not to complicated. Good luck!
