Question about Hoover F7220900 SteamVac V2 Upright Vacuum

1 Answer

Need to know how to take it apart

Hi, Can you email me the exploded pic of the F7220900Hoover SteamVac. The one that posts on here is too small to see the detail well.

The long plastic post that turns the brushes has broken off inside the motor. I need to get it out to replace and it seems to be jammed in there. An assistance would be great.

    Yeah it came out! I had to get creative with what I used to get that broken shaft out. I tried tweezers, an unfolded paper clip, dental tools, and even a broken screw removal tool. Finally, I remembered that my swiss army knife has a long skinny blade that I have never had a use for til now. I jammed it into the plastic shaft and gently wiggled until it came out.

    Now the next question is can I replace just that green shaft or do I have to replace the whole brush unit? I saw the replacement brush unit for $25 but would prefer to just replace that little shaft if possible. Does the brush unit come apart easily? It looks all plastic and I didn't want to pry too ******* it. Thanks again for all the help.

You should be able to grab it and pull it out. It just sits in the hole, if you have to use something sharp that you can push into it enough to pull it out. You also didn't give me your email addy to email you the picture.

How do you replace the brushes on a hoover f7452-900

You have two model numbers showing. I could not find anything on the F7425-900, but I did find an exploded view of the F7452-900 If you go to this URL:
you can see the exploded view. This itself does not provide directions on changing the brush, but it does indicate that by removing a few screws on the brush and squeezing some plastic tabs (looks like any way) that you can pull the brush off. If you have the new brush already, it may indicate some of the connection points.
Hope this helps a bit. Paul

MY hoover steam vac hand held hose cleaner leaks profusely

try taking a sharp knife and shaving a little off the edge of the plastic, or a small file if you can get to it, see if it is getting binded. If its getting stuck internally, you will have to replace the switch instead of risking takin it apart.

Hoover steamvac brushes don't spin. everything else works great. Took it apart and no visible problems

my husband took it apart today and the impellers were gunked up with black stuff.

he used these pictures that someone else generously posted. ours was slightly different in internal design, but they are helpful regardless.

here is an exploded diagram of the 5903, 04, etc. it will help you see if any parts are missing or broken.

parts list if you need some:
it's working fine now. sucks much better too. what a difference!

guess for the $179 these things avg, they just need annual maintenance. I wouldn't pay someone to do it though.

Hoover f5520 steamvac duo upright wet washer

Your problem is inside the vacuum hose where they have installed a small coiled hose that carries water to the smaller power head for upholstery. After taking this apart I found the inner smaller coiled hose was broken at 2 different places. A very poor design and poor quality material. The hose looked like it was rotted. This could be from old detergent left in the line or maybe the wrong detergent. A job to get it apart but if you remove the three screws that hold the side plate over the electrical you can block that hose off and the machine will work on floors only as the water to the power head is terminated.
