Question about Hoover V1 SteamVac SpinScrub Vacuum

Loud Grinding Noise

Bought a steam vac from a garage sale. I'm a first time user, and it worked great, but ehn all of a sudden it started making a grinding noise, so I turned it off, and it will not power back on. My husband checked for something possibly stuck in it, or a busted belt, but can't seem to find the problem. He also noticed that the fuse did not burn out. Is there something in it that can be replaced or is the motor burned out?

Take out the brush block and see if it will power on, if not then probably your motor has gone bad.

I have a model f7411900 steam vac from Hoover and it started making a loud noise like a broken belt does in a vacuum. Does this have a replacement bely


Open the product, make sure first that it is not something stuck inside. If it is a belt, check with amazon. Just make sure that you have the correct model.

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.

LOUD GRINDING NOISE ALL OF A SUDDEN , LOOSE BELT ?


you will probably have a faulty roller bar take of panel on bottom of vaccum. Now remove the roller bar hold the bar by both ends and try spinning. This should be easy and smooth if not pull off the end cap these will be very tight and check the bearings in each end i think you will find a few small metal balls rolling around inside if this is the case you need to replace the bar

Hoover steam vac dual v makes humming noise and nothing else.


Is the overfill valve (the yellow thing) in the waste container stuck in the up/full position? Maybe it just needs to be rinses well to avoid it being stuck and shutting off the vacuum portion of the cleaner.
