    I have only had my hoover since the end of may and have only used it 3 times. My husband was the last to use it, however; he had only used the hand tool for my stairs. But I went to use it today and the brushes wont spin. I even tried to spin them manually and they wouldnt budge. Any suggestions?

    I am having the same problem with my steam vac, BUT one thing that I noticed is that there is plenty of suction in the intake. Wouldn't that suggest that the turbine is working fine? Maybe a belt? But I can't find the belt, just a tan plastic kinda Y shaped cover that I can't figure out how to remove. Help anyone?

    I haven't had my Hoover steam Vac not even a yr. It has cause me more problems. First it was the nozzle was cracked & hoover sent me a new one, but U can't remove the old nozzle, so I took it to a repair shop & they wouldn't touch it because evertime they tried to remove it , it broke & they had to replace the carpet cleaner. Now they brushes won't rotate, I did everthing the manuel & no brushes rotate. It is to worse s carpet cleaner & have ever bought, too many problems!!!

    Ours the switch got stuck in the off position and would not budge. I finally had to take the tanks off the unit and lay the handle back. Using a small screwdriver as a pry bar I stuck the driver into the area where the switch was and felt for the mechanism. With both the screwdriver and the actual switch I was able to finally get it to move into the HI position where now it is stuck. At least it cleans floors and the brushes stop spinning when you put the handle up and it's in Tools mode. This is the 2nd hoover steamvac I've owned and the other one the brushes stopped completely as you guys mentioned. Once this unit dies I will make sure to purchase a different product next time, Hoover's had 2 shots with me and that's more than enough.

"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.

I have the Hoover F7210-900 and experienced the same problem of brushes not turning. It started less than a year after purchase with moderate spot use (keeping up after my new puppy). Since I procrastinated and missed the warrantee window 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.

Now if I can only figure out how to open up the front nozzle so that I can clean out all the dirty carpet fibers!

Most likely a bad wire or thee motor may have blown for that part of the machine.

    Well if you do end up with a new one, think Aerus FloorPro.... It has a 5 yr warrant, hard floor kits are available, and it is a dry foam process. It is actually the only method guaranteed to NOT void your warranty on your carpet. Also I have 6 kids, a large pitt bull, and if it can de-stain my rugs..... Well just say it has a glowing endorsement.....

No suction means somewhere in the intake side of the system you have either a blockage or an air leak.

The brushes do not rotate when cleaning carpet. Is in carpet clean mode and will not rotate. I did clear the filter underneath.


(1) Assure the Brush Control on the hood is NOT set to the OFF position.
(2) Remove the brush assembly by pulling/unlatching it from base on each side.
(3)Does one of the brushes have the drive pin present? It should be about ¼ inch square, and two inches long. It attaches the brushes to the drive mechanism

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.

Hoover Steam VAc carpet Model F7425-900


Take out the brush block, make sure that the shaft is ok, it goes up into the turbine, which is what drives the brushes. If the shaft is ok, then the turbine either needs to be cleaned and lubed, or replaced.
