Hello :
try this please : switch the carpet/bare floor dial back & forth 5 times, ending on carpet. Tilt the handle back as if to vacuum upright & lay the vacuum on its side so it is resting on the side opposite the carpet/bare floor dial. Turn the vacuum on.
or try this also if the above suggestion didn't work :
Maybe the belt is broke. You will have to replace the belt before the roller can spin. You must have run over something in the carpeting like string or whatever to have it break. Happens all the time. Get several replacement belts to keep as spares while you're at it as nothing is worse then having to vacuum and no spare belts.
please rate !

How do i know if the belt needs to be replaced in my hoover spin scrub


Remove the brush cover. Check belt for cuts or stressed areas.
Is the belt taut or stretched to the point of being loose. If you see
any of this replace with the correct size. Pull brush bar out of the
side slots and remove belt from motor pulley. Place new belt on
pulley and onto grooved area on the bar....stretch forward and
push back down into side slots. Remember....groove in brush bar
must line up with pulley. This is also a good time to remove hair
and other stuff from the brushes and bar.

Regards,
Dennis

Does the Hoover F5835-900 have spin scrub brushes?


No. The F5893-900 has a brush but it is just a straight brush and does not spin.

My spin scrub brushes don't spin at all.


Check that the belt that spins the brushes is not broken, also that the
gear that drives the belt is turning.

I was on my 2nd room and the brushes stopped working and it spells like a belt broke but there are no belts on the machine. Also making a louder sound.

Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. Hoover SteamVac F5914-900 Spin Scrub Upright --- If the vacuum does not have a belt there has to be something driving the brushes of which a part is broken and is in need of replacement. Please check your owner’s manual under the trouble shooting guide to see what is wrong, or feel free to call the Hoover factory website or phone 3 to cust serv @ Hoover to see what is wrong or to have them send out an owner’s manual to you for future use. 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.

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.

Belt replacement Hoover carpet cleaner


Hoover steamvacs don't use belts. If the brushes are not turning, pull the brush block out, turn the machine on and see if the square hole where the brush block was, is turning. If not then the turbine is bad. Sometimes you can take the turbine apart and clean it out. most times I have found , replace it.

I have the steam vac spinscrub upright. The brushes won't spin anymore.


Have you checked the lint screen? Your brushes are air driven if it's a Hoover Spin Scrub. There is a clear cover on the left side, when facinf from front. Remove this cover, about 3x5 inches and tapered, and clean the screen. Some units have a red or white screen that you can pull out from the bottom of the unit, left side just behind the brush block. Clean the screen then reinstall. Check that recovery tank is properly positioned- lack of seal means less suction which translates to brush block not turning.

Spin Scrub Brushes won't turn


If the brushes quit spinning, either the brush block shaft that goes into the turbine broke off, or the turbine is bad. This unit is tricky to take apart and then put back together again. But pull the brush asm off, then start taking out screws. But if after you pull off the brush block, look up where you will see a small square hole, turn unit on and if not turning, usually the turbine is the cause and will have to be replaced.
