    same problem with the brushes, but I do not smell anything

  • tgrantham Jul 22, 2008

    Same problem, brushes stopped turning while using the cleaner. I removed the brushes to see if the spindle was broken, it wasn't. I then removed the top plastic cover and checked the switch that engages the brushes; it didn't seem to be moving correctly. There's one spring on the switch - should there be two? Or do you think something has broken on the inside? Thanks for any help

Sorry it is not belt driven. There is a turbine that drives the brush. You have to remove the top cover to get to it. But if the motor smells hot, then you may have a problem with it also.

Hoover F7410-900 Steam Vac Dual V scrub brushes not working


If the brushes will to spin when you try to turn them by hand remove them from the machine. If the brushes spin ok after removing them the the turbine assembly is seized up and will likely need replaced. If the brushes won't spin when they are removed from machine take the plastic cover off the brushes and clean out the gears.

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?

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 hoover elite rewind is making a louder noise and I can smell something burning when I use it. I have replaced the belt but this did not help.


the smell is either the motor or the belt, if motor hope it is under warranty, if belt make sure brush roll spins freely and replace belt, if brush roll not spin freely replace it first

Help. The brushes on my Steam Vac Spin Scrub


If you don't have the user's manual for the machine, here it is:

Check your system for any obstructions that could possibly causing the problem. Also, remove the brushes and see if there's a problem between the brushes and the motor.

Brushes will not spin while locked in machine..


I have the same problem and think I know the solution.
The plastic pegs on the housing unit for the brushes have been stripped out. The pegs are supposed to be squared tip to click into the square hole of the machine. If the pegs aren't the same shape as the hole, the machine can't grab them to spin the brushes.
The tallest peg on mine somehow got stripped to a rounded shape. I tried wrapping tape, plastic, etc around the peg to make it fit in the hole snug, but it only worked for a few seconds and broke again. I am going to have to replace the brush set. You can order parts from Hoover but I haven't priced them yet.
I hope this helps you. Certainly is cheaper than replacing a motor or machine.

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.

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.
