There is a plastic rod that sticks out of the back of the spin brush, this makes all of the brushes rotate. The motor would need to be replaced if it was not turning on anymore. this doesn't sound right...?

I think it is just a broken piece of plastic on the block brush which will need to be replaced.

I have cleared the vacuum hose and the attached motor unit. I cannot get the brush going. What else can I do? I have also checked the connections.


I assume the brush head has a motor, if this is correct you need to get a AC volt meter and see if voltage is present at the motor, if it is the motor is defective and must be replaced, if it is no present then the cord to the motor that runs down the hose is defective or the connection to the motor is defective, use an ohm meter and do continuity tests to determine the place the open circuit is, if you are not familiar with electrical testing a vacuum repair shop can tell you what u need very quickly with a few simple tests, my local shop does this many times free of charge as long as u buy the parts from the shop..

The brushes won't turn on my hoover steam vac dual v


Hi There,

Unfortunately the answer above is far from helpful. The filter has absolutely nothing to do with your brushes not spinning, and you can really replace the turbine yourself without having to take it into a shop to fix it. Here's a much more helpful diagnosing of how to check the brushes, and fix the turbine if needed.

There can be serveral things that may have gone wrong with your Hoover so that the brushes stop spinning. Unlike the other "expert" above I will walk you through step by step on how to diagnosis this problem, and fix it. Unfortunately there is no belt or band on this model, but instead it's actually a turbine assembly that drives this brush.

Possible Problem #1. Usually the most common problem when the brushes stop spinning is that the brushes have simply gotten clogged with something that is preventing them from spinning. Especially if you have pets in the home, this is a common problem. Here's how you can clean these brushes.

First, turn the machine upside down so that the brushes are facing upwards. Pull down on the upwards on the brushes and they will easily snap right out of the mahcine completely. . Use a pressurized water hose with spray nozzle is ideal) and spray each brush with water to dislodge any pet hair. You should be able to get these brushes spinning when you spray them. Spray each brush until the brushes are spinning pretty fast. Re-insert the brushes into the machine, and test to see if the cleaning has fixed your problem. It's important to make sure that the brush switch on the top of the machine is turned to "Rotating Brush Speed Hi", and that the handle of the machine is reclined down. There is an internal switch inside the machine that turns the brushes off when the machine is in the upright position, so you'll need to step on the handle release pedal to ensure that this switch is engaged. Hopefully the brushes just needed to be cleaned, and they will now work now that you have reinserted them. If this still didn't fix your problem, move on to the next possible problem.

Possible problem #2: If the cleaning didn't fix your problem, remove the brushes from the machine again. Once the brushes have been removed, the handle reclined, and the brush switch turned to fast, turn the machine on. Where the brushes were sitting you'll see a square shaped hole (pictured below) that the brush stem fits into that actually spins the brushes. This part should be spinning while the machine is on. Here's a picture of that part:

If this part is not spinning, then your Turbine Gear Assembly has gone bad and needs to be replaced. If this part spins however, then this indicates that your brush block is gone bad, and needs to be replaced.

Here are links to the exact parts for your model that may need to be replaced:

Here's also a link to a Fixya repair solution that I've done explaining step by step how to replace the turbine gear:

My eureka 5902 4D bagless uprights roller brush stopped spinning. The belt is ok. This model has a sliding switch for roller speed. The brush should spin when you release the handle via the foot release....


The same thing happened to me about a year ago with this very model.
The issue on mine was a small, copper-colored metal wheel that attaches to the end of the brush roller. You'll need to remove the top cover (there are several screws).

Once it's off, you should see the belt, the beater brush, and the metal gear. The gear didn't fit correctly - so the motor just spins without moving the brush. I ended up going to the store and buying superglue that withstands high tempuratures, then gluing the gear to the motor's shaft... and hammering the thing into place before the glue 'set' too much. ...Not fun, but it's working and has been ever after. I can take photos of the thing if need be.

My Hoover steam vac dual v's brushes will not spin and the square that the peg goes into wont spin either. There is suction but it is making a loud noise.


sometime when the brush is not turning their are less resistance to the motor, so it will turn allot faster than normal. The turbine gear assembly which connected to the brush assembly probably broken, all the gears are made out plastic and they can easily break,strip or worned over period of usage. the assembly cost around 20 bucks and it not that hard to replace and it not that hard to take it apart, just remember what goes where. I wonldn't surprise when taking the vacuum apart as you observed closely and inspect the brush unit and the turbine gear assembly you might easily spot what broken and need replacing. hope that help some; and if you don't want to fiddle with it, your local vacuum repair guy can probably do it for less than 40 bucks. you can go on-line vacuum parts.com

Brushes will not spin while locked in machine..


I have the same problem and think I know the solution.
The plastic pegs on the housing unit for the brushes have been stripped out. The pegs are supposed to be squared tip to click into the square hole of the machine. If the pegs aren't the same shape as the hole, the machine can't grab them to spin the brushes.
The tallest peg on mine somehow got stripped to a rounded shape. I tried wrapping tape, plastic, etc around the peg to make it fit in the hole snug, but it only worked for a few seconds and broke again. I am going to have to replace the brush set. You can order parts from Hoover but I haven't priced them yet.
I hope this helps you. Certainly is cheaper than replacing a motor or machine.

Auto brush on hoover windtunnel doesn't spin anymore


I have a Windtunnel S3765 with the same problem - and it has very little use so I'm confident it isn't wear. I find that the wheels do not raise the agitator brush sufficiently high to reduce the drag caused by excessive contact with the carpet. If I raise the front a bit the brush spins as it should. It also works if I take the housing apart and use it without ..... but this is tricky.

Unfortunately I haven't figured out a way to hold it up efficiently. I am toying with afixing something to the bottom of the housing to raise the front enough to give the brush a little more room.

I have a Kenmore upright beltless that suddenly, the brush stopped spinning. Do you have an answer for this?

Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. On the Kenmore upright the belt is broken and needs replacing and you can take it to Sears / Kenmore or a local vac dealer and they can change it for you or you can attempt to do it yourself, usually it just takes a screwdriver and either a flat or a geared belt for less than $10.00 to $15.00 is an estimate.

This vacuum has given me nothing but problems!!! The newest problem is the brush. I have changed the belt several times, it is a new one now. The brush spins, but as soon as you set the machine in place to start cleaning, it stops and burns up the belt. I need help. I don't want to buy another vacuum!!!

Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure.
The problem that I can see id that you may have a bad brushroll that doesn’t spin freely, and has either bushings or bearings, a simple test is that take the brushroll out of the vacuum, set in on end and spin the brush, does it spin freely or does it stop, the next thing is to turn the motor pulley on the motor, it should spin freely as well, if either one is not spinning freely or easy then there is your problem, or make sure you have the correct belt size and that is a genuine eureka belt instead of a replacement belt for that model, those are the 3 things that should work for you, if the vacuum is less than a year old – take it to a factory authorized vac dealer and if it is the motor and pulley, it is covered, usually the belt and the brushroll are wear items and are NOT covered, some places however might cover the brushroll as a courtesy to the customer. So feel free to contact your local vac dealer. 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.

The plastic gears that drive the sweep brushes strip out easily on these. You can get the company to repair it for you but they make it a big hassle. I opted to buy the gear set on EBAY and replace them myself.
