The brushes are activated by suction, my berings and gears froze up, i took it apart, kinda hard to figure out, but not as bad as it looks. i lubed the berings and the gears, then i took an air compressor to the activation fins and let it spin, lubed again then hit it with air again, now works better then new.....GL

The brushes can be turned off on most of them via a switch on the hood. There shouldn't be water coming out onto the floor unless you are pulling the trigger at that top. You probably broke this when attempting to use the tools.

Vacuum wont spin when on carpet but will spin if tilted off the carpet


Remove the bottom plate of the sweeper. Remove the sweeper brush roller and clean the end bearings of debris. Oil the bearings lightly with 3-1 oil or similar machine oil. Clean the motor shaft with alcohol as well as the brush drive area, and the inside of the drive belt. Test on a carpet for improvement--if still stopping, replace the rubber drive belt. Hope this helps!

- Remove the access panel, which is on the bottom of the machine. There are 4 tabs to lift on the access panel to remove. Start with tab 1 then 2-4 tabs.
- Check the brush, and belt for any damage. Clean off any debris on the brush.
-The belt may not be broken but may show signs of wear. If belt is broken or shows signs of wear, replace belt.

Carpet function won't work.


You are going to have to get a screw driver and remove the bottom plate and the hoses. You are correct, there is a clog. You might be able to clear if you have a shop vac. Be prepared to remove all the connections in the dirt path to remove the hair ball.

Brush wont rotate


Without known the type or model of the vacuum you can only check a few generic design futures.
There is only one motor which turns the turbine and brush. Therefore, if the suction from the turbine works check the belt by removing the bottom plate of the vacuum and look for the belt attached to the brush or if only a piece of the broken belt is inside the unit. If the belt is attached and intact look for a mechanical switch to turn on and off the brush and make sure it is not on bare floor or off. Look on one of the edges of the brush assembly for the clutch which is attached to the mechanical brush switch with a rod. The clutch will close and open when you move the mechanical switch. If you cannot turn the brush unit by hand you may need to remove some objects such as string or hair from wrapped around the clutch or brush.

Hoover spin brush model f5914-900 wont draw water back out of carpet


Please remove the recovery tank and check and see there is a black rubber ring seal on the large vacuum tube that rises from the base to meet the bottom corner of the recovery tank. This rubber seal may have fallen off the tube and be found laying under the hood. It seals the vacuum source to the recovery tank.

Brushes don't spin


Remove the bottom cover and replace the broken drive belt. Check that the brush will rotate freely--likely everything is jammed with hair and dust. The brush assembly should just lift out of the case and the end bearings will pull off. The brush needs to be removed to install a new belt anyway. There should be a diagram that shows how to install the belt (it has a half-turn twist).

Brushes wont turn


Remove the brush block, turn the unit on its side and watch the square hole to see if it rotates. If not, then the turbine(#23) isn't working, if it is, then is the shaft on top of the brush block broke off, if it is, replace the brush block.
