Question about Hoover F7425-900 SteamVac V2 Widepath Upright Vacuum
Purchased and installed new brushed as the cog spindle was broken off. However still does not turn brushes. Appears cob spindle is not being turned by female connector in main unit. Rest of steamer works, i.e. water spray and return vacumn. is there a belt and or motor that needs to be looked at, no apparent entry to see.
I had the same problem and it was inside the turbine assembly. If you take the turbine assembly off the machine and open it up, you will see the turbine blades on one side and the reduction gears on the other side. The problem on mine was a needle bearing sandwiched between two washers on the reduction gear side. This bearing/washer stack is the stabilizer for the turbine gear shaft. Mine was rusted solid. I removed the washers and bearing and cleaned them up with a wire wheel being careful not to lose any of the tiny needles. Once evrything was rust-free, I reset the needles with grease and sandwiched the bearing between the washers. I then reinstalled this stack back in the case along with the other gears, regreased everything, and buttoned it up. Brushes are spinning better than they have in a long time.

The turbine is what turns the brushes, they get gummed up is one problem when they don't work.. Most times they get replaced. You have to take the top noozle off to get to the turbine.
