Spin brushes not turning


Most all Hoover SteamVacs rely on a turbine to create suction and spin the brushes. The brush block (removable, just clips in) will have one of the 5 or 6 brushes with a stem inserted up and in the turbine. Hoover did a poor job sealing the hole that stem goes through and water and cleaner seep up to the lower bearing on the turbine and the bearing siezes. The turbine has a gear assembly inside! It is not easy to replace the turbine, especially the first time because what needs to be removed can be a head scratcher. However goes easier the second time. The turbine can be taken apart once out and I have used light grease to free up the bearing and gears but it's only a temporary fix. Different models have different part # turbines so pay attention when ordering the part. Need a work bench environment to do this. On occasion the brush block itself can get stuck because the brushes gear mesh together and the stemed brush drives them all. They can and do bind up with junk and do wear down and bind. If you can't turn all 5 or 6 brushes by spinning with your fingers on the stem, the block itself could need replacing. The block and brushes do come apart for cleaning but be careful because they are plastic clips on both halves of cover/retainer and can break.

Brushes won't spin


First, please be sure to unplug your Steam Vac and remove both the clean water and the dirty water tank.
There should be a square stem that sticks up in the center of your brush assembly. If this stem is broken you will need to replace the complete brush assembly. If the stem is good; turn your cleaner on it's side and check in the area where the brush assembly goes (with the brush assembly removed). In the center of this area there is a square hole where the stem from the brush assembly goes. The square hole is in the bottom of the turbnie that spins your brushes. Using a large flat blade screw driver (not so large that you'll damage the hole), stick it in to the square hole and try to spin it. It should spin freely, if it is very hard to spin or won't spin at all, your turbine is bad and will need to be replaced.

New Hoover Steam Vac's brushes do not spin


The brushes are turning by an air driven turbine. The turbine has a pivot bushing made of steel inside of it that gets rusty because of the water that is running through it. The turbine will have to be replaced. You can find a genuine hoover replacement part by following the link below.

Brushes are not spinning. think the belt is off or broken. how do i access the belt?


There is no belt in this machine. The brushes are turning by an air driven turbine. The turbine has a pivot bushing made of steel inside of it that gets rusty because of the water that is running through it. The turbine will have to be replaced and they are expensive. Unfortunately, replacing the turbine and not a lasting solution. It will do it again and again. It is designed poorly.

The scrub brushes dont spin anymore


The brushes are turning by an air driven turbine. The turbine has a pivot bushing made of steel inside of it that gets rusty because of the water that is running through it. The turbine gear will have to be replaced. You can access the turbine gear by removing the hood. You can find a genuine hoover replacement part by following the link below. Just find the model number of your Steamvac.

My Hoover steam vac dual v's brushes will not spin and the square that the peg goes into wont spin either. There is suction but it is making a loud noise.


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

Brushes not spinning


The turbines get junk inside gumming up the gearing, some times you can take apart and clean everything inside. just remember where things go when you are done. Soaking the parts in hot soapy water helps to clean. When it is all dry, put it back together and try it. Replace it if it still doesn't work. You should be able to get one from your local repair shop, or they can order it for you. Maybe going to thehooverstore.com, order thru them direct.

No spinning.


Most common problem when the brushes stop spinning on this model or any "SpinScub" model is that screen filter is clogged as suggested above. If that isn't your problem then likely the turbine has gone bad. Some genius at Hoover designed a metal gear to drive a Nylon gear (Inside the black part that says "Assembled in Mexico". If the brushes jam hard and sudden, the metal gear just shaves the nylon right off. Solution: You will need a new turbine unit. Cost for the part is about $36, installation takes about 15 minutes (about 6 screws and two tubes).
I refurbish and repair vacuums and steam cleaners for a living and see this all the time.
