I have a hoover f5914-900 steam vac.. and I was wondering if there's a way to take apart the spin brushes to get them cleaned out well. I loaned it to family, and the brushes came back extremely soiled and not spinning.

The brush block may be removed from the base for rinsing.
Yes, you can CAREFULLY disassemble the brush block assembly by releasing each of three latches that hold each of the clear gear covers to the main block. A small screwdriver is used to GENTLY lift each tab, one at a time. Pay attention to what position the special gear is at that has the drive pin (1/4 inch square drive) for correct reassembly.

Here is the link to the User Manual that shows how to remove the brushes from the base.

The spin brushes on my hoover steam And vac don't


Either the pin on the brushes that attaches to the motor shaft is broken, or the motor is dead. Did you check the switch on the front of the unit to make sure it wasn't turned off?

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.

Brush Disassembly Hoover STEAM VAC Owners Manual F9514-900 (F9514900) does not
explain how to take the brush assembly apart. The instructions are as
follows:

Figure 1 shows the key

features. There are two

clear plastic outer pieces

which are held onto the

white inner piece with 3

tabs each. The clear

plastic tabs go underneath

the corresponding white

extended tabs on the white

plastic inner piece.

Figure 2 shows where the

screwdriver is inserted

(flat blade) and gently

pushed down while pulling

the clear plastic outer

piece away from the inner

white piece.

Figure 3 shows assembled

fits into the female drive

unit on the shampooer.

of the brushes. Hair and

fuzz remarkably entrained

in brushes, but I got 90% of it out.

Brushes not rotating on my Hoover Steam Vac Dual


The brushes are all connected to a single shaft. This square shaft is connected to 2 sets of gears and then another shaft which is turned by an impeller (suction from the vaccum pump is used to turn the impell and thus the brushes). There are 2 bearings that the impeller shaft turns on. It's likely these are rusted up and just need a bit of WD 40. Took me 30 min to take apart, lube, and put back together. Remember, its plastic. If things won't come apart, look for another screw. Mine was a brand new unit and the top bearing was rusted.

Hoover Steam Vac Spin Scrub Carpet Cleaner won't...
Posted by hoofbeats1 on Jul 01, 2008
My machine is a little more than a year old. I have used it about 5 times. It started leaking the third time I used it. The fourth time I took it out, the brushes would not spin (I did clean them and rinse them after use each time).
Now the engine screams and won't **** anything up. Do you have any suggestions? My last Hoover Steam Vac was great and lasted for 3 years! Hi,
I have a Hoover Dual V SteamVac F7425-900 that the brushes won't spin. The lint screen is clean & the brushes switch is in the on position.
It dispenses & sucks up the cleaning solution & water; just no brush action. Help


Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. The only thing that I can recommend is that you may have a bad switch, some vacs may have a broken belt or the drive mechanism inside the Hoover Dual V SteamVac F7425-900 in or by the brush assm section and is need of repair. Please check the trouble shooting section of the owner’s manual if you’re needing help and to save money. If you don’t have one then contact the Hoover factory cust serv. So, 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.

If this is a Hoover Steam vac, the turbine which drives the brushes is bad. If not a Hoover, then what is it, they are different, need brand and model number.

The brushes will not spin anymore and the switch to go from spin to locked does nothing this is on a hoover steam vac shampooer


Pull out the brush block, make sure it will turn and to see if the shaft is on it, the shaft goes up into the turbine. If the block is ok, then the turbine isn't working. You take it apart and clean out the turbine, or replace it.

This happens when the filter on the inside of the lid for the dirty water tank is pushed all of the way up. You need to leave a 1/4 in. gap from the top to the top of the filter.
