How to remove brushes on a hoover f5887-900 steam vac


Take off both tanks, then turn the steam vac over. Using both hands, pull evenly on each end of the brush block. They will pull straight out. But usually it isn't necessary to remove the brushes. Usually the problem is a blocked screen.If you look at the vac from the front of it with it turned right side up, there is a little window. Pull that off and using your fingernail, clean off the lint. If your model doesn't have a window that you can access, look underneath, near the brushes for a red plastic frame, pull down and it will expose the screen. Hope this helps.

Install upper control rod


Hi, it's Jeremy from Crucial Vacuum.

To attach the upper handle to your Hoover Steam Vac remove the clean solution tank (upper tank) from the deep cleaner. Then, attach the upper handle to the lower handle by pushing the upper handle down onto lower one. Use the provided bolts to secure the handles. Push the bolts into the accompanying holes on the front of handle. If the bolts do not go through the holes easily, your handle is not pushed completely down. When the handle sections are completely together, squeeze the trigger on the upper handle to snap the trigger rod into place.

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?

I followed the trouble shooting advice for a Hoover steam vac that has non-spinning brushes. Turbine ordered and replaced. Female receptacle still is not spinning. What now?


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.

The Hoover steam vac dual v does not spin its brushes and I dont know how to dismantel it to view the belt .


There is no belt on the steam vac - it operates on air flow. Remove the brush and insert a flat screwdriver into the square hole. If it does not turn, the turbine has seized up and must be replaced. Remember that the brush will not turn unless the lower tank is in place, and the handle is tilted back.

Hoover Steam Vac Spin Scrub


Remove the brush block, is the shaft on it or broken off. Replace the block if broken off. Turn unit over, with brush block removed, handle tilted back, is the square hole turning, if not then the turbine is bad, this is what turns the brushes.

Hoover F7458900 steam vac brushes won't turn


No, there is a turbine that turns the brushes. You can take the top cover off to get to it, open it up and clean it out and then try it again. If that doesn't work, then replace it, or just replace it to begin with.

brushes do not rotate on Hoover steam-vac upright

Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure.
This also happened to my own Hoover Steam Vac and there was a broken part that connected to the brush assm that I had to replace, it has been a while but once they replaced the part everything worked just fine and it was not that expensive and I am still using the vacuum still to date and it is working just fine. I believe it was something like the switch for the brushes on/off switch or the part was part of the handle assm. Check you owner’s manual for the exploded view on the vacuum or also check with 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.

Belt on steam vac v2


The V2 doesn't use a belt, it uses a turbine to drive the brush block, If brushes are not turning, either the shaft on the brush block broke off, or the turbine is bad and will have to be replaced.
