How do you get to the belt on a Hoover steam vac?

    My brushes do not move. Is this a major problem that is not worth fixing if there is no belt and it is a suction driven turbine?

I hate to tell you, but there is no belt at all on the steam vac line. they have a suction driven turbine to turn the brushes, and a suction driven pump for the water flow. But definately no belts.

If something is not working on it, describe more in detail what is not working and we can narrow it down better for a proper solution.

    Sometimes, and I say sometimes, you can turn the brushes manually (grab the centre brush) by turning them by hand. I assume your model has the rotating brushes. This might allow them to free up so that you can use them again.

    Something else to look for on some of these models is the clear lens off to the right of the unit with a metal screen inside. Sometimes those block up with hair/lint etc and if you clean that off it may turn again as well.

    good luck.

    After I cleaned the screen it worked great. Thank you for your help.

My hoover steam vac is making a horrible noise and smells like its burning


Something may have jammed the brush roller, preventing rotation. This causes the motor shaft to rotate in one spot on the belt, causing the burning rubber smell. Eventually, the belt will break. You need to find what caused the jam and remove it. It would be a good idea to replace the belt as a burned belt is unlikely to last much longer.

Hoover changing belt


There is no belt in Hoover Steam Vac. A gear box turns the brushes. The nylon gears wear down, eventually, but can be replaced. Check this out: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n-vPOk9kEag

I have a Hoover Steam Vac Dual V and the brushes no longer turn. Can it it fixed? Model # F7431-900


your belt is probably brokan. underneath the machine you will see some screws carefully take them out writing down which screw went where. than you can pop the plate off and look in there and see if your belt is brokan. If it is the belt number is important to find in your book that came with the machine. hope this helps you.

The Hoover steam vac dual v does not spin its brushes and I dont know how to dismantel it to view the belt .


There is no belt on the steam vac - it operates on air flow. Remove the brush and insert a flat screwdriver into the square hole. If it does not turn, the turbine has seized up and must be replaced. Remember that the brush will not turn unless the lower tank is in place, and the handle is tilted back.

I own a hoover steam vac model f5915-900 and i currently have two problems. 1. the brushes are spinning at a much slower speed. 2. the steam vac is not picking up the water it leaves on the carpet....


the reason the brushes are not spinning is because the belt is slipping, the belt is the bad that connects to the brush to a shaft that makes it spin. Next problam is it is probobly clogged. so water is not going through all the way

Well there is no belt, and not sure what the rubber would be from, everything is plastic or metal. Unless it is really an electrical smell, which means the motor is going bad.

Belt on steam vac v2


The V2 doesn't use a belt, it uses a turbine to drive the brush block, If brushes are not turning, either the shaft on the brush block broke off, or the turbine is bad and will have to be replaced.
