Following is the procedure for removing the brushes.
Your cleaner is equipped with removable brushes. Follow these directions for changing brush assemblies or for easy cleaning. How to Remove To prevent possible leaking, remove Clean Water Tank and Dirty Water Tank. Set tanks aside. With handle in upright position, tilt cleaner back until handle rests on the floor. 5.3 Grab brush assembly and pull firmly.
The brushes can be cleaned under running water. ! CAUTION ! To reduce the risk of injury from moving parts, unplug cleaner before servicing.
Hello Sonny! If the dirty water tank is not put back on securely it will prevent brushes from spinning. Take off the dirty water tank and replace it making sure it locks onto the cleaner and is flush. Now check your brushes for obstructions. Remove all hair and debris from the brushes. If the brushes still will not spin take your cleaner into a Hoover authorized service center for repair. Follow the link to locate the nearest service center in your area. Hope this was helpful!
Hi there! The tanks, brushes, nozzle and handle can be removed from the cleaner by following these quick steps below.
1. To remove the clean water tank simply grasp the handle and push down on handle to unlock it, then pull the tank out by the handle.
2. To remove the dirty water tank, slide the latches open located on the sides of the cleaner that hold the tank to the base of the cleaner. Grasp the handle and pull up and off.
3. For brush removal, with the handle in the upright position, tilt cleaner back until handle rests on floor. Grab brush assembly and pull firmly.
4. To remove the nozzle, with handle in upright position, tilt cleaner back until handle rests on floor. Pull tab at rear edge of nozzle and pull forward to remove nozzle.
5. For handle removal simply remove the handle screw and lift up on handle.
Disassembly beyond this point is not recommended. Hope this helps!
There could be several reasons for this. Remember that the brushes will not turn unless the dirty water tank is in place. Also the handle must be released and tipped back. It is also possible that the rubber seal that the lower tank sits on is missing. If you look down into the motor area, there should be a large, round rubber seal that the lower tank sits on. Look for the round tube that protrudes from the bottom of the dirty water tank. This tube sits against the seal. If it is missing it will need replacement.
Suggest that you do the following.
Remove the TOP ("Clean water") tank. Fill it 1/2 full of water. Put the top on the clean water tank and place it back on the machine.
Release the machine handle and remove the cover of the "dirty" water tank. Inspect the back of the tank to be sure that the vacuum adapter in located in the rear of the dirty water tank. If not-that is your problem. If yes, restore the top to the dirty water tank.
Power the machine on.
On a kitchen floor, power the machine on. Pull the trigger and hold it for about 30 seconds. You should see water gathering around the brushes. If not, that is a problem.
With water around the brushes, release and lower the handle and and move the machine over the water. It should vacuum the water into the dirty water tank.
Is all of that happening?
The brushes for that unit turn by the suction on the machine. Please check to be sure the recovery tank is on the machine correctly and that the lid is on the recovery tank correctly.
If the lid is on correctly, try taking the brushes out of the machine by pressing the four tabs on the brush block under the machine. (sometimes 2 black tabs at either end of the block) You will find that there is a small plastic stem that rides inside the machine. this stem sticks out of the top of the brush block and is what drives the brushes. Many times this is brolken off and is a common problem. If the drive stem is just fine, try to turn it. If it turns easily and the brushes turn leave this alone, if the brushes will not turn freely clean out the gummed up brushes and it should solve your problem.
If the brushes turn freely and the stem is in tact, you likely have a drive problem. In this case put a flat blade screwdriver in the drive hole up inside the machine. If it will not turn the transmission is seized up. This can be purchased at any hoover service center. Use their dealer locator to find the nearest one. To replace this item, remove the hood by pulling the 6 screws underneath the machine. Tilt the hood from the back to the front pivoting towards the nose of the machine. (take off the clear intake duct and recovery tank first) With the hood off you will see the drive mechanisim in the front of the machine, there will be 4 screws holding it in, 2 on top 2 on the bottom, remove those screws and gently lift this part off the machine. There will be a waterline attached to this as well, remove this by simply pulling it off. Replace the item with the good trans, and go back through your disassembly steps.
Check the foam filter on the underside of the recovery tank lid, make sure that it has at least a 1/4 in. gap from the top. There also is a filter, from the bottom, it has a red frame, pull out far enough to clean it.
On the bottom of the tank, depress the vale to make sure water is coming out. With the tank off, squeeze the trigger, is the rod inside the handle pushing up against the diaphram, if it is, there maybe a problem with the reservior asm and will have to be replaced.
http://geeksquad.fixya.com/ThreadView.aspx?prdid=40578&thid=661545 Hoover SteamVac Deep Cleaner Posted by Alex987 on Jun 10, 2008 I can't seem to figure out how to use it =( Hello, I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. Hoover F5807 SteamVac Wet/Dry Vacuum. Well, there are 2 tanks, one is the water solution tank that is on top and the other is the water recovery tank of which is on the bottom. You use the trigger assm to release the water and the Hoover SteamVac works the best on the pull back. You can spry the water going forward but pull it back very slowly and let the brushes do the scrubbing for you and the dirty water pickup. There is a ball in the dirty water pup tank that will rise to the top and stop the water from coming in, @ that point you need to empty and rinse out the recovery tank and re-install. If you run out of solution the top tank cap or cover is the measuring cup to determine the amount of solution – usually it is one cap full and extremely hot water, there is a switch for the carpet and the upholstery, if the handle is in the released position then the brushes down below should be moving – just look in the brushes window and see if they are moving – if the handle is in the upright position then you can remove the attachment hose and then use the attachment and the revolving brushes will stop. I hope this will help you in working with the Hoover SteamVac. If not contact the Hoover Co and get an owner’s manual and give them the model # and serial #. 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. http://www.hoover.com Telephone Contact our Customer Service Department at 1.330.499.9499 Monday through Friday 8 a.m. - 7 p.m. EST Thanks, Don the Vac Man Go Ahead.

Release the handle and lay the machine handle
back to access the Tank.
2. Remove the Tank from the base of the machine by
lifting the Tank carry Handle.
3. Carry like a bucket to the sink. Rotate the Handle
forward to unlatch the lid. Lift off and set the lid aside.
4. Fill up the Bladder with clean hot tap water.
*Do not boil or microwave water as it can
destroy the Bladder.
5. Replace the top of the Tank by matching the lid
and tank edges. Handle must be in the forward
position in order to replace lid. Rotate the handle
to the carrying position to latch the lid.
Note: Remember to secure the lid and test to
make sure it is secure before picking up the Tank.
6. Place tank into machine base, seating firmly in place.
Rotate tank handle back into latched position. Bring
machine handle back into upright position.
1. Lift the formula Tank up and out of the machine base.
2. To fill the Formula Tank, first unscrew the Cap
and Insert. Always use genuine BISSELL formulas
to maximize cleaning and for the safety of your
machine. Fill formula up to the line and replace the
Cap and Insert. Place Formula Tank back into the
base of machine, making sure it is seated securely.
Note: If bottle leaks, check for proper positioning
of red gromment and straw.
the most common problem is the recovery tank. Most often the square piece of plastic that attaches to the side of the recovery tank is not snapped in-- it comes loose when you dump the tank. Take off the lid, pull the clear plastic sqare (about 4 inches by 5 ) that is attached on the OUTSIDE of the recovery tank and snap it back into place.
2nd make sure the rubber rim is clean and free of debris
3rd attach the lid with the hinges on the back first then snap down the lid
4th make sure the yellow float is down on the bottom (this is inside the filter inside the recovery tank)
5th put the recovery tank in the machine FRONT FIRST (where the two round peices of plastic are)then back, snap the sides back to lock the tank in place.
If these things dont work....make sure your not clogged with debris on the top (but I am sure you would have seen this before doing all the rest!)
