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.

Hoover F7458-900 SteamVac The brushes quit


My Hoover F7458-900 was doing the same thing, brushes not turning and since it is about 7 years old and out of warrenty I decided I had nothing to lose so I took it apart after reading all the other posts on this problem. The brushes are actually turned by a turbine motor (no belts involved) that runs off air produced by the vaccum motor of the unit. The air turns a metal spindle that then turns several nylon gears in the turbin the last of which turns the brushes. The nylon gear that engages with the metal spindle was worn down to the point that it was no longer engaging with it and thus not turning.
The only fix for this problem is to buy a new turbin motor which is not that expensive about $34 plus shipping since they don't sell just the nylon gear. Hope this helps

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.

Brushes not turning, but suction okay?


My problem was that the metal "transmission" had it's upper and lower bearings frozen. I sprayed WD-40 and let it sit for awhile. I then proceeded to work it free. It was quite rusty inside the cover plate, leading me to believe that water somehow entered the housing or they used a water based lubricant from the factory. Water based lubricants are generally cheaper than oil based so I'm tending to lead that way. The "transmission" is the metal rod with hypoid type gear in it that turns the 2 plastic gears. It is a press fit to the turbine wheel, so twisting a flat blade screwdriver under the turbine wheel will remove it. Make sure the lower bearing is free to turn easily. I also used some anti-sieze compound on the gears.

Brushes still wont turn


I had same problem and it was the turbine assembly. Part was only $28 but with labor it cost me $140 total. Plus it took over 5 weeks for my vacuum repair shop to get the part. In hindsight, I would have just spent another $100-$150 dollars and bought a new cleaner because now I'm having issues with the water tank leaking and I have to replace the valve assembly. Seems like it's always something.

Brushes not rotating on hoover f7425-900 steamvac v2


I had the same problem and it was inside the turbine assembly. If you take the turbine assembly off the machine and open it up, you will see the turbine blades on one side and the reduction gears on the other side. The problem on mine was a needle bearing sandwiched between two washers on the reduction gear side. This bearing/washer stack is the stabilizer for the turbine gear shaft. Mine was rusted solid. I removed the washers and bearing and cleaned them up with a wire wheel being careful not to lose any of the tiny needles. Once evrything was rust-free, I reset the needles with grease and sandwiched the bearing between the washers. I then reinstalled this stack back in the case along with the other gears, regreased everything, and buttoned it up. Brushes are spinning better than they have in a long time.

Hoover SteamVac Dual V Carpet Cleaner # F7410-900


"I did some research online and the recurrent theme was a bad turbine assembly. Fortunately I was able to fix this myself which took about 2 hours (some reading) and little effort. The problem was with the turbine which is fairly simple and had a bearing that had rusted and froze up. Removing the cover proved to be more difficult than fixing the stuck bearing. This was mostly due to figuring out the correct screws to remove and finally discovering that the back of the cover (over the wheels) is not secured by fasteners but by pegs that "pop" out.

Once I had the brush assembly and Cover removed the turbine came out with the removal of some obvious screws and gently pulling the hoses from the assembly. After carefully opening the assembly housing I discovered the bearing problem and with a little lubrication and some new grease had it working in short order. Putting everything back together was simple as well."


this worked for me. although once i got in i just had to mess around with the gears and loosen them up. getting in was the hard part soo here you go peoples.

take off tanks

unscrew 6 screws fom underneath machine. look carefully

just underneath where the dirty tank goes right by the part that sucks everything up is a screw. unscrew it

pop off the switch for your spin scrub mode. it pops right back on.

make sure your locks for the tank are turned in

then the back just pops off. you might have to give it a good tug. there are no screws although it maight look like there is.

then pull off the grey part.

once inside it is pretty easy.

but if you have any questionbs email at lostnhisblueyes@aol.com

i took off so many more screws than i needed to to get this figured out so dont do that.

Turbine


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).

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!
