Question about Hoover F7220900 SteamVac V2 Upright Vacuum

1 Answer

Turbine locked up

I am having a little trouble getting to the turbine. I am not sure exactly what pops off to get to it. Of course the V nozzle was easy. I have already tried to remove the brush housing without success. 4 screws under the unit, right? Should it pop off (down) after they are removed?

The brush block is just held in by clips, just use a screw driver to pry it out. There are 6 screws on the bottom that need to be removed. 2 where the brush block was, just alittle back from there are 2 more. Then near the edge on each side, are screws that are deep in a hole. Also are 2 other longer screws from the bottom that go into the turbine. Remove the top, there are 2 more screws at the front of the turbine.

Seems like the problem with the turbine head is a frequent problem. I am having the same problem with the brushes do not turn right when put on the carpet.i have already paid to get looked at .


Turbine nozzles require a lot off suction to work properly. If the filters are clogged it can reduce the suction. It might help to replace all of the filters.

Hoover steam vac F7427-900, brushes stopped


Yes, But very carefully. I have cleaned and replaced the bearings on many of these items. I found the bearing to be available online. There is also a measure of prevention to install a new gasket when re-installing the turbine.

There are 6 screws under the bottom to remove the hood and nozzle. two snaps on top at the back to release.
Two long screws under the botton center for the turbine and 2 more short ones on top at the nozzle body. disconnect the hoses and remove trubine. If you need more assistance please reply to this post.

The brushes won't turn on my hoover steam vac dual v


Hi There,

Unfortunately the answer above is far from helpful. The filter has absolutely nothing to do with your brushes not spinning, and you can really replace the turbine yourself without having to take it into a shop to fix it. Here's a much more helpful diagnosing of how to check the brushes, and fix the turbine if needed.

There can be serveral things that may have gone wrong with your Hoover so that the brushes stop spinning. Unlike the other "expert" above I will walk you through step by step on how to diagnosis this problem, and fix it. Unfortunately there is no belt or band on this model, but instead it's actually a turbine assembly that drives this brush.

Possible Problem #1. Usually the most common problem when the brushes stop spinning is that the brushes have simply gotten clogged with something that is preventing them from spinning. Especially if you have pets in the home, this is a common problem. Here's how you can clean these brushes.

First, turn the machine upside down so that the brushes are facing upwards. Pull down on the upwards on the brushes and they will easily snap right out of the mahcine completely. . Use a pressurized water hose with spray nozzle is ideal) and spray each brush with water to dislodge any pet hair. You should be able to get these brushes spinning when you spray them. Spray each brush until the brushes are spinning pretty fast. Re-insert the brushes into the machine, and test to see if the cleaning has fixed your problem. It's important to make sure that the brush switch on the top of the machine is turned to "Rotating Brush Speed Hi", and that the handle of the machine is reclined down. There is an internal switch inside the machine that turns the brushes off when the machine is in the upright position, so you'll need to step on the handle release pedal to ensure that this switch is engaged. Hopefully the brushes just needed to be cleaned, and they will now work now that you have reinserted them. If this still didn't fix your problem, move on to the next possible problem.

Possible problem #2: If the cleaning didn't fix your problem, remove the brushes from the machine again. Once the brushes have been removed, the handle reclined, and the brush switch turned to fast, turn the machine on. Where the brushes were sitting you'll see a square shaped hole (pictured below) that the brush stem fits into that actually spins the brushes. This part should be spinning while the machine is on. Here's a picture of that part:

If this part is not spinning, then your Turbine Gear Assembly has gone bad and needs to be replaced. If this part spins however, then this indicates that your brush block is gone bad, and needs to be replaced.

Here are links to the exact parts for your model that may need to be replaced:

Here's also a link to a Fixya repair solution that I've done explaining step by step how to replace the turbine gear:

Brushes won't spin on a Hoover Steamvac SpinScrub Model F5918-900

The brushes won't turn.


There are two reason why the "Turbine" will not rotate. A: It is an air driven device, so if there is not enough air flow through it, it will not rotate. I beleive there is a lint screen on the bottom of the unit that slides down and can be cleaned out. Make sure the recovery tank lid is on properly and there are no missing gaskets in the airflow path. B: The turbine is locked up. This happens a lot. You should be able to rotate the brushes on the block by hand will they are locked into the machine easily(this will manually rotate the turbine. If you can't then your turbine is locked up. What you do then is romove the hood. Screws hold it down in the front and it pops into place in the back. Take out the turbine. There are two screws on the top and two accessed from the bottom of the unit. There are a four screws and a few locks that hold the turbine together. Take it apart, but be careful as to how the gears and washers are arranged and not to lose any small parts. You can usually free it up by hand by rotating the fan on the opposite of the gear box. Once it is freed you can apply a lubricant to prevent it from happening again. I use spray lithium grease. There usually isn't enough lubricant applied in on the gears at the factory, so once you do this, you shouldn't have this problem again. When you first run the machine again it might blow a little excess grease out of the exhause, so to be safe don't fire it up on the carpet, when you first test it. The gearbox may need to be replaced if it is damaged and not just locked up, but this rarely happed. Also, try not to lean the machine all the way back(place the handle on a chair or something) over time it tends to tear the hose inside of it.

Good Luck

Re-attaching the vacuum


With the nozzle off, turn the big knob until it locks, (will only turn one way) also make sure the belt is in the center, then turn the knob, put the nozzle back on and lock it down. Then turn the knob again and then the belt will be put on the spindle. Next time, before removing the nozzle, turn thast knob until it locks, then remove it, then it will be ready when you want to put it back on.

Hoover SteamVac Dual V Carpet Cleaner # F7410-900


"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.

Brushes


This machine has no belts. There is an air driven turbine that propels the brushes. If you look under the little glass window at the left front corner of the machine, there is an intake screen just above the indicator dial. That screen is there to keep debris from entering the turbine and will have to be kept clean. If it is clogged, then the turbine will not function.It is also possible that moisture has entered the turbine and siezed the bearings. If that is the case, the turbine would have to be replaced. Also, because this turbine works off the suction of the motor, if the recovery tank lid is not on correctly, then the suction loss will effect the brushes. Check the lid and make sure it is on right.

First take the guard off the nozzle and remove the nozzle being careful to not let the spring fly. Now pull off the little white tip of the nozzle which less than 1 inch long. Run a needle or fine wire through the main hole running parallel to the hose and make sure you can see it at the head of the nozzel end. It is best to also blow on it to make sure any dirt particles are gone. Even a speck of dust in your solution part of the tank can easily clog it. In 90% of these vacs, that solves the problem and I have repaired at least 50 of them in the past 4 years.

If that doesn't solve it then try this:
Take the impeller on the bottom out by flipping the tank part over, and clean it. Make sure it spins well.

These Hovver Jr Steam Vacs are long lasting and very effective in cleaning spills and stains. Our janitorial company has many of them and in 5 years only one of about 60 has finally been shelved for parts only. I have replaced a few nozzles and several tank latches plus filters, hoses, and the brush and capp on the end of the hose. An additional chore that is made easy with this is defrosting a freezer!
