Question about Hoover F5906-900 Upright Steam Vacuum

1 Answer

MY HOOVER Steamvac F5906-900 does not run

I plugged in my steam vac and the motor ran for just a couple of minutes then it stopped. Nothing happens when I hit the on/off switch. I tried different outlets with no changes.

    The cord looks fine and there was no indication the motor was going bad. How to test?

There is a switch, but could be a bad cord, or the motor went bad.

    You would need a meter, so you can check for continuity on the cord. The cord has 2 leads, so you test to see if one of the leads is open. If one lead is open, replace the cord. Same with the motor, unhook the power leads and see if you get a low ready or not. If you take the motor out, does the fan turn or is it froze up. If it is, replace the motor. If you check the swith, turned off, it should read open, on it will read alittle or continutity.

The only source for electrical sparks is the motor so it must be checked. Bad motor brushes or a broken wire are possible causes. Do not use in this condition.

If the cleaner will not turn on at all, you could have one of several problems:
(1) Bad foot switch
(2) Bad power cord, or
(3) Motor failure.

The unit would need disassembled and tested with a continuity meter to determine the part that failed.
