Question about Hoover SteamVac Carpet/Upholstery Deep Cleaner Vacuum
I have a Hoover SteamVac carpet and floor cleaner,the brushes will not turn,the hand held one for steps moves but the big one for the floor want.I think it may be a belt but I don't know where to look.
1) check the filter by the spin indicator (the plastic cover snaps off). Clean if necessary. See if this solves your problem.
2) take out the spin brush assembly (pull out, there may be tabs you need to push to get it all the way out. Clean out dirt and hair. This may be all you need to do, if not take step 3
3) turn on the machine with the brush assembly out. Do you see where the square shaft the drives the brushes goes in? If the socket does not spin, you probably have a seized up turbine assembly.
4) remove the top that covers the motor/turbine (you probably have to take out some screws) The turbine assembly is towards the front. Remove this (again, a couple of screws) and turn it over--there will be some gears. If you can get these gears turning smoothly together you should get the turbine working again. I used a pair of pliers to turn the metal shaft.
Put everything back together and try it out!

I have a Hoover Steam Vac Deluxe, in addition to the switch, there is an Indicator Screen on the bottom of the unit. if this is clogged, the brushes will not work correctly.
That has solved my problem in the past, but now with a clean screen and the switch in the proper location, my brushes still will not spin. anyone have another solution?

I have a Hoover SteamVac, it's brushes are driven from a gear case. There is no belt. Mine has a selector on the top of the unit near the brushes, you can select the brush speed (high, low, off). I shut the brushes off once and my wife was the next to use the machine and did not realize the brushes were off until half way through the house. Post your model number and it will help determine if yours has this selector.

Cover should come off faceplate to show belt// if brush roll spins freely then belt has gone... if not belt okay
