My enviro vac is being stubborn

First , spin the brush roll by hand and see if it spins freely. Then remove it.
CLEAN OUT ANY HAIR OR THREAD UNDER THE CAPS Inspect the end caps , if one is melted you will need to replace the cap if available or the entire brush roll assembly.
The "metal piece" is the motor shaft. Clean any burned rubber of with fine wet dry sand paper, then install a fresh belt, using the brush for leverage to stretch the belt into place. Rotate the brush again to be sure it is not binding and that the belt is not pinched anywhere.
Buy 2 belts and keep your spare inside the hood of the vac.

Sorry, you will not find that one part available for sale. You will need the assembly from the manufacturer, or may check online sales/auctions.

Posted by charlenemo on Jul 07, 2008
I was on my 2nd room and the brushes stopped working and it spells like a belt broke but there are no belts on the machine. Also making a louder sound.

I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. Hoover SteamVac F5914-900 Spin Scrub Upright --- If the vacuum does not have a belt there has to be something driving the brushes of which a part is broken and is in need of replacement. Please check your owner’s manual under the trouble shooting guide to see what is wrong, or feel free to call the Hoover factory website or phone 3 to cust serv @ Hoover to see what is wrong or to have them send out an owner’s manual to you for future use. So if you need further assistance, 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.

Hoover Spin Scrub model # F7410-900. The brushes will not spin.

Take the brush block out, is the shaft still on it or did it break off, if it broke off, then replace the brush block. If it is there and you can turn the brushes by hand, then the turbine is bad. Sometimes you can clean it out, most time you have to replace it.

Depending on the brush roll, some are rebuildable and some you have to replace the whole brush roll. Take it out and take it to a repair shop, they should be able to tell you by looking at it, and get what you need.

Spin Scrub Brushes won't turn

If the brushes quit spinning, either the brush block shaft that goes into the turbine broke off, or the turbine is bad. This unit is tricky to take apart and then put back together again. But pull the brush asm off, then start taking out screws. But if after you pull off the brush block, look up where you will see a small square hole, turn unit on and if not turning, usually the turbine is the cause and will have to be replaced.
