My hoover steam vac will not **** up the water on the carper.

I can not get my Hoover Steam Vac to **** up the fluied that I am releasing onto my carper. I have looked at the bottom of the unit and the brushes are turning and there is a lot of air blowing out but no suction. I have not used it for about 6 months and at that time it was working great. Can you please help me.

Hoover steam vac model 5853-900 has 5 brushes/cleaning dispensers, am only getting 2 small trickles of fluid when I dispense fluid onto carpet


The brushes come off, they are clipped on as an assembly if you look at the bottom of the machine you can see where the cover for the vacuum slot that brings up the water clips on too. If you remove that you can see the clips that hold the brush unit better

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.

My front spin brush stopped working but everything else works


You will need to replace the belt. Remove the screws from the bottom of the unit. Then remove the brush roller. You should be able to see the belt, if not you'll need to look on the upright part of the unit and ge tthe belt's "code" usually a letter. You can usually find the belt at walmart or wherever vacuums are sold.

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

unit. Note extended brush

axle goes in center, which

fits into the female drive

unit on the shampooer.

I used the hose nozzle out

on the lawn to direct high

velocity water stream

trying to get the hair out

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.

Cleaning brush assembly on steamvac


Yes this does come apart. The clear plastic pieces clip into the black plastic piece, flat tip screw driver inserted into the gap can release the clips and allow for cleaning.
