Question about Vacuums
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.

The Hoover SteamVac works just fine without the brushes. In fact, I think it does a better job. After sending mine out to be fixed two times, I just decided to try it without the brushes which wouldn't turn AGAIN!! Cannot afford to buy another one right now, and actually, I am pleased with the results I'm getting. No more dirty brushes to clean and better suction. Just be sure you set the "rotating brush speed adjustment" on the front of the SteamVac to "off".

I have the steam vac spin scrub upright. The brushes won't spin anymore.
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure.
The brushes have got to be driven with some type of belt system or the brush assembly could be broken and is in need of replacement – it’s my guess it could be the belt or a broken part. Check with your local vacuum dealer in the yellow pages to see if he has a product breakdown to see what could be broken and the cost of the part needed. If it is the belt – the cost is in-expensive. Feel free to contact the Hoover Company listed below if you have further questions…..
