Turbine Hi I found out through your site that my turbin is bad on my steam vac and I found some information as well on how to disasemble the steam vac to get to the turbine but still was wondering if there were some more detailed instructions on how to remove the turbin. I am a sigle mom and doing the work on the steam vac myself and need a little more detailed instructions. Please help asap and have a bless day.

    The hoses you are talking about are they hooked to the turbin? I am going to try first thing in the morning to see if I can get it out.

  • mlisa402 Feb 10, 2008

    Thanks for the diagram I had saved a copy of it before but did not know what number was what. What is the number 24? I see the number 23 inwhich you said was the turbine.

  • mlisa402 Feb 10, 2008

    Do I need to remove them? I just got the steam vac out and I am going to try and remove the turbin. I was told that I could take the turbin out and soak the bearing then replace and it should work. Have you heard of this?

  • mlisa402 Feb 10, 2008

    I got the advise from the web site "howtomendit.com" there are several people who said they done it and it worked.

  • mlisa402 Feb 10, 2008

    I took the two srews from underneath to take top cover off and then had to take one from the top (underneath the tank) to remove the top cover and it is now loose and lets me go up with it but will not come off all the way because it is attached at top in the back but not by screws it looks like you can just pop off but not sure. HELP

  • mlisa402 Feb 10, 2008

I am a single mother of a 21 year old daughter who is going to college full time and she works a almost full time job with a condition of cyst on the center of brain that gives her sever headaches worse than migrains. Just didn't know if would work being I am on such a tight budget. I don't even know where the bearings are. Do you know how to get the top cover off after removing screws.

  • mlisa402 Feb 10, 2008

    OK thank you it took alot but it finally come off. Now I can just take the turbine out or are there screws there to? I know I need to unhook the hose.

  • mlisa402 Feb 10, 2008

    Oh I didn't know you answered so quick while I was typing. OK after I get the turbin out and take apart what do I soak it in do you know?

  • mlisa402 Feb 10, 2008

    I took the two srews out of top of turbin and had already done two on bottom and It still doesn't come out.

  • mlisa402 Feb 10, 2008

    If I take a picture of it would you beable to tell better

  • mlisa402 Feb 10, 2008

    I'm sorry I didn't have the screws out on bottom now it comes out.

  • mlisa402 Feb 10, 2008

    OK I opened the turbine and the are two light blue plastic wheels with teeth on outer edge of each and there is a metel couple of metel post that these wheels go on that are really dirty with goop and then there was the little metel piece that was on top of post that comes off. Do I put it in water or oil

  • mlisa402 Feb 10, 2008

    Hey are you there

  • mlisa402 Feb 10, 2008

    OK I took it all apart even the turbin then did like you said about cleaning and after all was done and put back together it works great!!! The one post that does the turning of the brushes would not turn at all when first took it apart but after soaking it and used a little WD on it the it loosened up and starting turning so I cleaned it up lil more and made sure all goop was gone and spin properly then lubed it up and put it back together and it works great. Thank you so much for all your help you are the BEST!!!! I hope your around when I tackel by next repair.

    Inwhich will be soon.

There are some screws on the bottom that have to come out so you can remove the top housing. Take the brush block out, there are 2 screws above where it sits. The turbine sits near the front, and in the mid section, 2 screws on the front of it and 2 long screws from underneath, if you already haven't removed them. Unhook the hoses to it thenpick it out and replace with the new one. ( Some models near the back of the housing, is a catch on each side that you have to unhook to release the top).

    They are hooked to the front part of the turbine. #23 is the turbine.



  • Lauren Junge
    Lauren Junge Feb 10, 2008

    #24 are the 2 screws that hold down the front of the turbine.

  • Lauren Junge
    Lauren Junge Feb 10, 2008

    That may work, but can't be sure if it would be a real fix that will last or just delays replacing the turbine, myself I would replace it. But for you, it might be worth a try.

  • Lauren Junge
    Lauren Junge Feb 10, 2008

    Either there is a locking tab near the back edge on each side, or there is a post on each side that is just pushed into a hole and it will pull out.

  • Lauren Junge
    Lauren Junge Feb 10, 2008

    The bearing the others were talking about is inside the turbine, you will need to take it apart, soak the part that has the bearing in it, then put it back together.

  • Lauren Junge
    Lauren Junge Feb 10, 2008

    Actually no, if it is a bushing rather then a ball bearing, then just soap and hot water, if it is a ball bearing, don't use water, put some oil on it, and let it soak in to the bearing, just a drop or 2 of lite weigh oil.

  • Lauren Junge
    Lauren Junge Feb 10, 2008

    It should come out, after removing the 2 screws on top, and the 2 longer screws from the bottom. If you have those out, maybe it is just stuck.

  • Lauren Junge
    Lauren Junge Feb 10, 2008

    Those gears and posts, just clean them off with soap and water, if there is a brass bushing, maybe just a dab of oil on it, but not on any plastic pieces.

Hoover steam carpet cleaner - turbine needed for F7458-900


Once you get the turbine out, open it up by unlatching the three latches and unscrewing two screws. Pull the gears out and WD40 everything. Let it sit for a bit and start turning the solver gear at the back with a pair of pliers. Once it is loose, put all the gears back together and return everything to it's place. FIXED! without buying a new turbine....

How do we get at the drive belt? The cover seems to be sealed.


There is no belt in a Hoover SteamVac. The brushes are turned by an air driven turbine. If the brushes are not turning, it is usually because the turbine has seized up and may need replacement. Insert a screwdriver into the square hole that the pin on the brush assembly normally fits into and see if it turns. If it doesn't, you will need a new turbine.

Hoover steam vac F7427-900, brushes stopped


Yes, But very carefully. I have cleaned and replaced the bearings on many of these items. I found the bearing to be available online. There is also a measure of prevention to install a new gasket when re-installing the turbine.

There are 6 screws under the bottom to remove the hood and nozzle. two snaps on top at the back to release.
Two long screws under the botton center for the turbine and 2 more short ones on top at the nozzle body. disconnect the hoses and remove trubine. If you need more assistance please reply to this post.

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.

Hoover steam vac dual model F7425900


If you are talking about the brush block, take it out and see if the shaft that goes up into the turbine is broken off, if not, then the turbine has gone bad and will have to be replaced. The turbine is what turns the brushes.

Belt on steam vac v2


The V2 doesn't use a belt, it uses a turbine to drive the brush block, If brushes are not turning, either the shaft on the brush block broke off, or the turbine is bad and will have to be replaced.

Problems with the Hoover Steam vac Heated carpet cleaner


The first thing to check is the filter on the inside of the lid to the recovery tank, if it is all of the way up to the top, it can cause variouys problems, it should have a 1/4 in gap from the top. The other thing is the turbine, that is what drives the brushes. If the brush block is ok, then most likely the turbine is bad and will ahve to be replaced. Part # for the turbine is 43191006 and sells for about $60.

Steam Vac model: F7425-900


I had the same problem 2 weeks ago.I took apart the turbine and found that there are two bearings that hold the main gear that were rusted fast. I put some 3in1 oil on them and kept on trying to break them free by turning them,it worked great. Just keep putting oil on and turn them. It beats buying a new turbine! Just pay attention on how you took it apart. Its not to complicated. Good luck!
