Follow these steps if the Brushes Fail to Spin
•If the brushes on your Hoover carpet cleaner fail to spin, there may be a problem---some sort of blockage---with the suction or with the belt that turns the brushes.
Turn the Hoover carpet cleaner over, and inspect the brush area. Debris, strings, or pet hair may be tangled in the rollers, keeping them from turning. Use a pair of scissors to cut away any obstructions in this area. Flip the Hoover carpet cleaner back over, and turn it on to see if cleaning the rollers has solved the problem.
To check the belt, turn the Hoover carpet cleaner over, and remove the bottom plate screw with a Phillips head screwdriver. Investigate the belt area to see if it is broken or has somehow slipped off. If it is broken, you can order a part from Hoover.com or from many of the other online parts stores.
When the belt arrives, simply slide it on in place of the broken belt, reattach the bottom plate and turn the Hoover carpet cleaner right-side up. Turn it on to test your solution.

Make sure the filter screen is clean. Air has to pass through the screen to turn the turbine. The brush block assembly may be restricted from turning by debris in the brushes or gears. Try to turn the brushes by hand. If they won't turn remove the assembly and see if they will turn when removed from machine. If they do turn the turbine that spins the brushes may be seized and needs replaced.

MY HOOVER DUAL V STEAM VAC CARPET CLEANER BRUSHES WILL NOT SPIN! WHY?


There are three things to check:

Is the switch on the hood for brush speed set to full, or may it be set to OFF?

Remove the brush block from under the unit by pulling it down and unlatch each side. Is there a 1/4 inch square drive pin on one brush, about two inches long? It connects the brush to the drive mechanism.

Lastly, the drive mechanism in the base may be bound-up, and not spinning. If so, the unit needs disassembled to repair or replaced.

The brushes do not rotate when cleaning carpet. Is in carpet clean mode and will not rotate. I did clear the filter underneath.


(1) Assure the Brush Control on the hood is NOT set to the OFF position.
(2) Remove the brush assembly by pulling/unlatching it from base on each side.
(3)Does one of the brushes have the drive pin present? It should be about ¼ inch square, and two inches long. It attaches the brushes to the drive mechanism

Setting up for apolstery cleaning


Hoover Steam Vac F5853-900 Series 17.9

Remove the tank front panel by sliding it straight up. Replace panel with converter (located on end of hose, end is shaped like front panel that you slide out.Before connecting tube to cleaner, make sure black tabs are extended by pulling tan collar roward tube.Open door on hood labeled "Stair/Upholstery Cleaning Connection" Press round solution tube connector onto round projection inside door. Press connecator collar down firmly to ensure that it is fully connected.
When the solution tube is connected to the deep cleaner, the nozzle brushes will automatically be turned off and will not rotate when the deep cleaner is turned on even if the speed selector is in the HI oar LO position. For full suction, it is important that the recovery tank lid is properly secured before cleaning.The tank lid is replaced in a hinge-like manner. Position front of lid under tabs on front of tank. Rotate lid down onto tank. Make sure lid is secure on all sides before cleaning.Hope this helps.
Good Luck

Brushes will not rotate on my steam vac


I am having the same problem also as I can see many of you are having. I've only had my hoover steamvac dual V carpet cleaner for about a month and only used it once, then used it about a month later and the brushes no longer spin. These steam cleaners aren't cheap either, mine was over $250 and only used it once before malfunctioning. Obviously this is a huge problem because I've searched the web and there are many complaints about the spinbrushes on these units.

Hoover steam vac, brushes won't rotate, have cleaned filter by brushes, removed brushes and they rotate okay when off steam vac, tried to ajust level for carpet cleaning and brushes still don't move


Check to see if the shaft on the brush block hasn't broken off. Otherwise it is the turbine that drives the brushes and is either clogged up inside or needs to be replaced.

Take out the brush block, make sure that the shaft is ok, it goes up into the turbine, which is what drives the brushes. If the shaft is ok, then the turbine either needs to be cleaned and lubed, or replaced.

Did you clean both filters? There is one on the tank and the other is from the bottom, it ha a red frame, pull it out to clean. Pull the brush block out, is the shaft that goes up into the machine broken off? If so replace the brush block. While it is out, trn the machine on and see if the square hole up where the brush block goes, is turning. If not then the turbine has gone bad. You can sometimes clean the turbine out, otherwise replacing it may be the best option.

Spin brushes spin freely on steam vac when not attached to cleaner indicator screen not dirty speed selector is in high position brushes are clean spin brush indicator when brushes attached to machine...


If this is a Hoover Steam vac, the turbine which drives the brushes is bad. If not a Hoover, then what is it, they are different, need brand and model number.
