    I can pull the plate off holding in the brush, but can't find anything to get the main plate off holding the other end of the belt. There are no screws or levers.

Hoover steamvacs don't use belts. If the brushes are not turning, pull the brush block out, turn the machine on and see if the square hole where the brush block was, is turning. If not then the turbine is bad. Sometimes you can take the turbine apart and clean it out. most times I have found , replace it.

Hoover cyclean brush stopped revolving


The belt may be broken or worn If your cleaner is not picking up fluff and hair from the carpet or has become heavy to push it is possible that the belt has snapped. This belt makes the sweeping brushes spin round underneath the cleaner and brush dirt into the path of the air suction. The brushes also give that 'groomed' look to your carpet by gently brushing the carpet fibre. If you pick up something sharp or debris gets jammed in the brushes then the belt may snap. Also over time your belt will stretch, so it's a good idea to change your belt once per year to ensure the cleaner picks up dirt effectively.

If the vacuum cleaner comes on but the brush will not spin, try replacing the belt and clean each end of the brush from lint , string, carpet materials.

On hoover steam carpet cleaner, the brushes do not rotate on low or high settings.


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.

Why wont the brushes spin? I have had this machine for about 3 years and it has always worked great, tonight the brushes will not spin at all, it still sprays and sucks up the water. We took the brushes...


In this machine there is no belt. The brushes actually spin by vacuum and in the turbine assembly there is a small wheel bearign which rusts out. You will need to remove and repair or replace the turbine and gear assembly P/N should be 43191009

The brushes will not turn but the shampooer will come on


1) check the filter by the spin indicator (the plastic cover snaps off). Clean if necessary. See if this solves your problem.

2) take out the spin brush assembly (pull out, there may be tabs you need to push to get it all the way out. Clean out dirt and hair. This may be all you need to do, if not take step 3

3) turn on the machine with the brush assembly out. Do you see where the square shaft the drives the brushes goes in? If the socket does not spin, you probably have a seized up turbine assembly.

4) remove the top that covers the motor/turbine (you probably have to take out some screws) The turbine assembly is towards the front. Remove this (again, a couple of screws) and turn it over--there will be some gears. If you can get these gears turning smoothly together you should get the turbine working again. I used a pair of pliers to turn the metal shaft.

Put everything back together and try it out!

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 aren't spinning


The brushes are belt drive by a belt. The belt is probably broken. You can purchase a new belt at a local discount store and replace it. You won't find anything that looks like a pulley, it'll just be a bare round metal portion of the brush assembly that is located at one end. The motor end will look similar.

Brushes won't spin on hoover steam vac


Hello tmc68cam. Most vacuums have a belt driving the rollers/brushes. Unplug unit and remove the housing screws to view internaly. If a broken belt note your model# and search for a local applance repair shop for a replacement. IF not I will need Mgfr.,model & serial# to research to futher assist in the repair. Good Luck.
