    We had the exact same product about four months after purchase. It was the gears weren't spinning. The problem was covered by the warranty and we had to send it off to their service center. That has been a real pain in and of itself.

Sometime when the brush is not turning their are less resistance to the motor, so it will turn allot faster than normal. The turbine gear assembly which connected to the brush assembly probably broken, all the gears are made out plastic and they can easily break,strip or worned over period of usage. the assembly cost around 20 bucks and it not that hard to replace and it not that hard to take it apart, just remember what goes where. I wonldn't surprise when taking the vacuum apart as you observed closely and inspect the brush unit and the turbine gear assembly you might easily spot what broken and need replacing. hope that help some; and if you don't want to fiddle with it, your local vacuum repair guy can probably do it for less than 40 bucks. you can go on-line vacuum parts.com

Spinscrub loud brushes don't spin


Most models have a screen under the machine or behind one of the clear covers on the front. If the screen is clogged it will restrict the airflow.
Make sure the brushes will spin freely by hand.

The Hoover steam vac dual v does not spin its brushes and I dont know how to dismantel it to view the belt .


There is no belt on the steam vac - it operates on air flow. Remove the brush and insert a flat screwdriver into the square hole. If it does not turn, the turbine has seized up and must be replaced. Remember that the brush will not turn unless the lower tank is in place, and the handle is tilted back.

Hoover stean vac dual with 5 brushes


I think this is the same unit I have, I might have a couple of solutions. No, there is not a belt that turns the brushes and there is not a fuse.
First of all, make sure the brushes have been clicked into the machine properly. The entire plastic housing unit for the brushes can be removed by pulling on the casing gently. It should pop out. Make sure the pegs and clips line up with the holes in the machine when reattaching the brushes. You should hear it click when they are on properly.
If the brushes are attached properly and they still won't spin here is another possible solution. This happened to mine.
The plastic pegs on the housing unit for the brushes might have been stripped out. The pegs are supposed to be squared tip to click into the square hole of the machine. If the pegs aren't the same shape as the hole, the machine can't grab them to spin the brushes.
The tallest peg on mine somehow got stripped to a rounded shape. I tried wrapping tape, plastic, etc around the peg to make it fit in the hole snug, but it only worked for a few seconds and broke again. I am going to have to replace the brush set. You can order parts from Hoover but I haven't priced them yet.
I hope this helps you.

I have the same problem and think I know the solution.

I hope this helps you. Certainly is cheaper than replacing a motor or machine.

My Hoover steam vac has two small springs that have come loose.


How do I replace the turbine? How do I remove the casing to get to the turbine? I do not have the manual anymore.

Brushes not rotating on my Hoover Steam Vac Dual


The brushes are all connected to a single shaft. This square shaft is connected to 2 sets of gears and then another shaft which is turned by an impeller (suction from the vaccum pump is used to turn the impell and thus the brushes). There are 2 bearings that the impeller shaft turns on. It's likely these are rusted up and just need a bit of WD 40. Took me 30 min to take apart, lube, and put back together. Remember, its plastic. If things won't come apart, look for another screw. Mine was a brand new unit and the top bearing was rusted.

Hoover Steam Vac Spin Scrub Carpet Cleaner won't...
Posted by hoofbeats1 on Jul 01, 2008
My machine is a little more than a year old. I have used it about 5 times. It started leaking the third time I used it. The fourth time I took it out, the brushes would not spin (I did clean them and rinse them after use each time).
Now the engine screams and won't **** anything up. Do you have any suggestions? My last Hoover Steam Vac was great and lasted for 3 years! Hi,
I have a Hoover Dual V SteamVac F7425-900 that the brushes won't spin. The lint screen is clean & the brushes switch is in the on position.
It dispenses & sucks up the cleaning solution & water; just no brush action. Help


Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. The only thing that I can recommend is that you may have a bad switch, some vacs may have a broken belt or the drive mechanism inside the Hoover Dual V SteamVac F7425-900 in or by the brush assm section and is need of repair. Please check the trouble shooting section of the owner’s manual if you’re needing help and to save money. If you don’t have one then contact the Hoover factory cust serv. So, please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or in the yellow pages, or contact the factory phone number or website to further assist you with your questions.

Problems with the Hoover Steam vac Heated carpet cleaner


The first thing to check is the filter on the inside of the lid to the recovery tank, if it is all of the way up to the top, it can cause variouys problems, it should have a 1/4 in gap from the top. The other thing is the turbine, that is what drives the brushes. If the brush block is ok, then most likely the turbine is bad and will ahve to be replaced. Part # for the turbine is 43191006 and sells for about $60.

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.
