Hoover U6317-930 - Turbine Locked Up!

Something got picked up and is lodged inside the turbine, preventing it from turning. Is there a way to disassemble it to get inside the turbine? Thanks!

You will need to remove the hood as though changing the belt. Then best to detach the handle/ bag chamber with the black screw at the lower end in the center.
Lay the vac flat and you should see two clamps over the motor housing, one on either side. Undo the clamps and the motor will lift out. There will be four more screws holding the fan shroud onto the motor housing. Remove these and detach the fan end only. Installation is the reverse order. The fan itself will unscrew if replacing,just secure the motor shaft without damaging it.
Polish the motor shaft clean for a new belt, removing burned rubber. I use 600 grit wet/dry sandpaper or steel wool.
Any evidence of a damaged fan blade means a new fan is required.
While you're at it, unscrew the end caps on the brush roll and remove the hair and thread. Then reassemble so it spins freely when holding the end caps. Install a new genuine belt. It will be snug, use the brush to pull it into place.
When reassembling be sure to engage the carpet height control through the lid
If this helps please acknowledge. If not psot back with the next problem

Spin brushes not turning


Most all Hoover SteamVacs rely on a turbine to create suction and spin the brushes. The brush block (removable, just clips in) will have one of the 5 or 6 brushes with a stem inserted up and in the turbine. Hoover did a poor job sealing the hole that stem goes through and water and cleaner seep up to the lower bearing on the turbine and the bearing siezes. The turbine has a gear assembly inside! It is not easy to replace the turbine, especially the first time because what needs to be removed can be a head scratcher. However goes easier the second time. The turbine can be taken apart once out and I have used light grease to free up the bearing and gears but it's only a temporary fix. Different models have different part # turbines so pay attention when ordering the part. Need a work bench environment to do this. On occasion the brush block itself can get stuck because the brushes gear mesh together and the stemed brush drives them all. They can and do bind up with junk and do wear down and bind. If you can't turn all 5 or 6 brushes by spinning with your fingers on the stem, the block itself could need replacing. The block and brushes do come apart for cleaning but be careful because they are plastic clips on both halves of cover/retainer and can break.

How do we get at the drive belt? The cover seems to be sealed.


There is no belt in a Hoover SteamVac. The brushes are turned by an air driven turbine. If the brushes are not turning, it is usually because the turbine has seized up and may need replacement. Insert a screwdriver into the square hole that the pin on the brush assembly normally fits into and see if it turns. If it doesn't, you will need a new turbine.

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.

Disassemble hoover f5914-900


yes if you strip down the caseing, you need to find out if it has swallowed something in the turbine or if the brush has failed on the rotor inside the caseing, but it should all be fixable

Sorry, you will not find that one part available for sale. You will need the assembly from the manufacturer, or may check online sales/auctions.
