SOURCE: brushes won't spin on hoover steam vac ls

I have the SteamVac Dual and there's a screen on the underside of the unit. It's beneath the brushes and it's red. You have to pull and wiggle it to get it out. With the machine unplugged, lay the unit with the handle on the floor. In the owner's manual ( http://www.hoover.com/pdfs/manuals/F7222900.pdf ) this is shown on page 10 figure 3-2. Clean that screen.
If they still won't spin, then take the brushes out. Again, with the unit on the floor, you simply grab the unit firmly and pull towards you. It's much easier to remove than the screen. I took the brush unit outside and blasted it with the house. You'll have to pull out whatever fur balls are clogging it but eventually you'll see that the brushes spin freely with the water squirting on them. Plug the brush unit back in and - in my case - they started spinning.

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: brushes don't work on my hoover steam vac v2

The bearing on the inside of the turbine is rusted. You will have to take the hood of the unit and unscrew the black piece that has to rub hoses going to it. Then take apart the black turbine. Inside you will find 2 white gears and a small 1/2inch bearing. Use wd40 to uncease the bearing. After this put the take pliers and make sure the metal post will turn. Spray wd40 on everything you see including Hoover for making such ****. After this put put everything back together. Now the best thing to do is get some automotive bearing grease and put a large amount on bearing and and other metal parts. Put everthing back together. Clean any hair off the brushes and you are ready. Now the bad news if your gears are worn you will have to replace the turbine. Go to an internet website and the part number will be 91001019. I know all this because I spent 6 years working for Hoover and they found it cheaper to send our jobs overseas.

SOURCE: Help. The brushes on my Steam Vac Spin Scrub

If you don't have the user's manual for the machine, here it is:

Check your system for any obstructions that could possibly causing the problem. Also, remove the brushes and see if there's a problem between the brushes and the motor.

How to remove brushes on a hoover f5887-900 steam vac


Take off both tanks, then turn the steam vac over. Using both hands, pull evenly on each end of the brush block. They will pull straight out. But usually it isn't necessary to remove the brushes. Usually the problem is a blocked screen.If you look at the vac from the front of it with it turned right side up, there is a little window. Pull that off and using your fingernail, clean off the lint. If your model doesn't have a window that you can access, look underneath, near the brushes for a red plastic frame, pull down and it will expose the screen. Hope this helps.

Hoover steam vac the brushes dont spin


It could be one or more different things. The brush assembly might have an obstruction. The shaft coming out of the brush assembly might have broken. It could be a clogged screen or filter. It could be the turbine is not working properly.

My hoover spin brush steam vac brushes wont spin


Unplug vac turn it over and check for belts that drive the brushes
They are located at the very end of the brush They are probably missing
or they snapped and sitting in the housing somewhere. If you ar mechanically inclined not very difficult to replace. While you are at it clean all the hair and fibers that usually accumulate around the brush bushings
That is usually the culprit that wears down the belts
have fun

(1) Assure the brush shut off lever on the hood is not set to the off position.
(2) Is there still a square pin standing up from the one drive brush? It should be 1/4 square, and about two inches tall. That pin is the drive from the transmission to the brushes.
There are no belts. The transmission is air and gear drive mechanism.

I have a hoover steam vac deluxe and the brushes rotate very slowly and have little power. i have cleaned the indicator screen.


Check to make sure that the foam filter inside the recovery tank lid has at least a 1/4 inch gap from the top. Other then that, the turbine is what turns the brushes, either the shaft on the top of he brush block broke off, or the turbine is stuck. Sometimes you can take th turbine apart and clean out the components, must times it is better to just replace it rather then mess with it.

If this is a Hoover Steam vac, the turbine which drives the brushes is bad. If not a Hoover, then what is it, they are different, need brand and model number.
