You either have something worn out or the motor inside is going bad. Sounds like the motor in the power head is going bad. Disconnect the the wand from the power head and flip over the head take the plate off. then take the plastic cover off uou should get to the motor then. look at all the parts. I would think you need to replace the brush roll, belt and motor. But this is just a guess

Power head motor dose not operate when switch on handle of vaccum


Its possible if the head is belt driven that it has clogged with fibres or could even have snapped. Unplug the vac, turn it over and have a look, you may need to remove a cover plate first.

Hoover steam vac spin vac making loud noise sparks flying


The only source for electrical sparks is the motor so it must be checked. Bad motor brushes or a broken wire are possible causes. Do not use in this condition.

B&s engine on mower turned upside down, won't start now.


Take the spark plug out, turn ignition key or pull rope until the engine turns over several times. Let it sit for about 5 or 10 minutes and repeat. Replace the spark plug with a new one. Make sure that your crankcase is not over filled or under filled with oil, and make sure that there is plenty of gasoline in the tank. Make sure that gasoline cap and oil cap are on "securely". Now try to re-start. (The engine may smoke for a while, but it should clear up in a few minutes).

I was using my steam vac and it blew out smoke and quick sucking anything up. i have taken everything I can find off and can't figure out what the problem is. I have the F5915900.


Hi well usually any "Smoke" that comes from a device such as this, it is from the Motor, i suspect that the motor has burnt out? That is usualy what it is when they are bought to my shop anyway?

You will need to take this unit to a repair center and ask for a "Quote", it maybe that this device is an uneconomic repair?

Smoke coming out!


This sounds electrical. If you have had this one year or less then it should be under warranty. find your local Hoover warranty dealer at the Hoover website hoover.com
