Question about Hoover F7220900 SteamVac V2 Upright Vacuum

1 Answer

Brushes not working

Hi, we purchase this hoover steam vac about 1.5 years ago. About 4 months ago the brushes stopped working and I brought it to a repair service. He said the motor was burned out and ordered a new one. It cost 70 to fix it. It has now been 3 months and the brushes have stopped woring again. We use the vac about once every other week and clean it thorough when we are finished.

Is there anything we can do or check that perhaps it is not the motror again? Any input would be appreicated. Thank you, George

    ive noticed my brushes not turning and since then have removed and cleaned the filter and notice the white bocked turbine was not turning. Is there any way to check it yourself for blockage or to see if it has gone bad?

Check the filter from the bottom, it has a red frame, pull it out far enough to clean it, if it is clooged, then the brushes won't spin. If it is clean, pull the brush block out, make sure the shaft that goes up into the turbine is not brokked off, if it is replace thebrush block. With the brush block out, turn on the machine and look up where the brush block goes, there is a square hole, if it is turning, then it is ok, if not, then the turbine is either clogged up or the turbine has gone bad.

How to clean brushes on hoover steam vac?


Hi, it's Allie from Crucial Vacuum!

Cleaning the brushes on your unit is a very easy and important tank to do! Your deep cleaner is equipped with removable brushes for easy cleaning. First, make sure to remove the clean water tank and recovery tank to prevent possible leaking. Tilt your unit backwards making sure the handle is in the upright position. Grab the brushes and pull firmly. You may clean the brushes with running water. Do not forget to check the brushes for any tangled hair strands or debris that can prevent the brushes from spinning properly.

How to clean brushes on hoover steam vac


Hi, it's Allie from Crucial Vacuum!

Cleaning the brushes on your unit is crucial in maintaining your Hoover performing at it's best and it is very easy to do. First, make sure your unit is off and unplugged, and make sure to remove the clean and dirty water tanks to avoid any possible leaking.

With the handle in the upright position, tilt the unit back and rest it on the floor. Grad the brush assembly and pull firmly until you remove them from the unit. Clean the brushes with running water until the water runs clear and the brushes are clean.

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?

Hoover Steam Vac - Brushes not turned, no suction power


The Brushes not spinning is most likely is caused by seized bearings in the turbine, requiring shop service (easy fix). The suction issue can be caused by the standpipe seal missing or lower recovery tank not on properly, on some models missing front panel. I would need more exact model info to assist further.

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.

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.

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.

Problems with the Hoover Steam vac Heated carpet cleaner


The first thing to check is the filter on the inside of the lid to the recovery tank, if it is all of the way up to the top, it can cause variouys problems, it should have a 1/4 in gap from the top. The other thing is the turbine, that is what drives the brushes. If the brush block is ok, then most likely the turbine is bad and will ahve to be replaced. Part # for the turbine is 43191006 and sells for about $60.

This happens when the filter on the inside of the lid for the dirty water tank is pushed all of the way up. You need to leave a 1/4 in. gap from the top to the top of the filter.
