If the speed control switch on the hood is in the On position, it would appear the drive mechanism for the brushes is not spinning internally. The drive mechanism could easily be replaced by a technician.

How to change the belt?


There is no belt on a Hoover SteamVac. The brushes are rotated by an air driven turbine. If the brushes aren't spinning, you most likely need to replace the turbine assembly.

I have a Hoover carpet cleaner - Model # f7441-980. My brushes do not rotate.


There is a plastic piece on the back of the block brush (spin scrubbers) these wear out or break. You may need to replace the block brush. You can find the parts and a schematic below follow the link. Please don't forget to give positive feedback.

How do you change the belt on a f7441-980 hoover carpet cleaner


There are no belts on the SteamVac series. If you have a brush rotation problem, please check this:
(1) Assure the Brush Control on the hood is NOT set to the OFF position.
(2) Remove the brush assembly by pulling/unlatching it from base on each side.
(3) Does one of the brushes have the drive pin present? It should be about ¼ inch square, and two inches long. It attaches the brushes to the drive mechanism.
(4)Remove and clean the intake filter. One the base of the cleaner, behind the brushes, squeeze the two red abs together and pull the panel down to access the screen. Clean the hair/debris off the screen

Why did the brushes stop rotating?


Please check two things:
(1) The shutoff switch on the hood is NOT set to OFF for brush speed.
(2) Remove the red filter panel from under the cleaner, behind the brushes, and clean the hair/debris from the screen filter. Squeeze the two panels together, and pull down to remove from the pocket.

My hoover F745 900 steamvac brushes will not spin.


If you are handy with a screwdriver undo the casing to access the roller. Once open usually about 4-5 screws you will see that the drivebelt ( rubber band ) has broken. This is the piece you need to replace. Usually most electrical store selling cleaners have these. Take the piece along or get the part number from the manual and replace it yourself. Cheaper than having a tech do it at $90 an hr plus the $5 part

Hoover Steam Vac - Brushes not turned, no suction power


The Brushes not spinning is most likely is caused by seized bearings in the turbine, requiring shop service (easy fix). The suction issue can be caused by the standpipe seal missing or lower recovery tank not on properly, on some models missing front panel. I would need more exact model info to assist further.
