    I have the same problem with my hoover carpet cleaner. I can not get the brushes to spin. Everything else still works so what do I need to do to fix the problem.

  • jackie3621 Jul 20, 2008

    have taken sweeper head apart as far as I can but run into sealed unit for brushes. I'm afraid to go any farther because of the water issue. If I break the seal I'm afraid the cleaner won't work at all.

    I have the same problem with the brush not turning. Has anyone come up with a solution to this problem as of Aug 1, 2008.



    As to Joe Blow's solution, doesn't he have enough to do????

  • crogers67 Aug 20, 2008

    My problem is the same. The machine works great, but the brushes no longer turn. I've cleaned the screen and checked the spring. Nothing seems out of order, but they will not turn.



    I'd LOVE to find a true solution!

    I have had the same problem off and on with my Hoover Steam Vac Model F7426-800. I have cleaned the filter, and inserted it until it clicks. I have taken the brushes out, and they spin freely with my finger. The problem seems to be with the mechanism that turns the post connected to one of the brush wheels, thus spinning all of the interconnected brushes. Until today, the brushes would eventually start to spin during my cleaning event, but not this time. No matter what we've tried, the brushes won't spin.

I have the SteamVac Dual and there's a screen on the underside of the unit. It's beneath the brushes and it's red. You have to pull and wiggle it to get it out. With the machine unplugged, lay the unit with the handle on the floor. In the owner's manual ( http://www.hoover.com/pdfs/manuals/F7222900.pdf ) this is shown on page 10 figure 3-2. Clean that screen.
If they still won't spin, then take the brushes out. Again, with the unit on the floor, you simply grab the unit firmly and pull towards you. It's much easier to remove than the screen. I took the brush unit outside and blasted it with the house. You'll have to pull out whatever fur balls are clogging it but eventually you'll see that the brushes spin freely with the water squirting on them. Plug the brush unit back in and - in my case - they started spinning.

    Okay, I had the same problem. The little filter screen was coated pretty good and I didn't even know it was there. However, the air motor that drives the brushes was also seized. You have to remove the air motor which is not too difficult and take it apart. There is a bearing on the bottom that was stiff on mine and the gears were also stuck. Working these back and forth freed everything up. Reassembled and everything works as it should. Be sure to keep that little filter clean. Hope you have the same luck that I did.

Hoover Air Turbine for Carpet Cleaner 7452-900



If the turbine seizes (as indicated by the brushes not spinning) and not caused by other issues described on other posts), it can be fixed rather than having to replace. You can find instructions elsewhere on how to remove. Once the turbine is removed, unscrew the two parts. Remove the two cogs and remove the collar on the top of the spindle (the spindle groves in it). The spindle is rusted to the collar at the bottom. Use some penetrating oil, pull lose with pliers, clean up, put back together Drop a bit of 3N1 oil to the collar to help prevent rusting in the future. Also oil the top collar. The spindle then spins freely and works fine (at least mine did).

Tip is slightly, do the brushes spin then? If so, then the brushes are air driven. By the spin indicator at the front of the machine, you'll see a small screen (same type of thing as is in your dryer), scrape it, you'll probably find there's a build-up of fluff. Clean off the fluff, and try again.

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.

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.

Hello,

This also happened to my own Hoover Steam Vac and there was a broken part that connected to the brush assm that I had to replace, it has been a while but once they replaced the part everything worked just fine and it was not that expensive and I am still using the vacuum still to date and it is working just fine. I believe it was something like the switch for the brushes on/off switch or the part was part of the handle assm. Check you owner’s manual for the exploded view on the vacuum or also check with your local vac dealer. So if you need further assistance, 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.

I have the steam vac spinscrub upright. The brushes won't spin anymore.


Have you checked the lint screen? Your brushes are air driven if it's a Hoover Spin Scrub. There is a clear cover on the left side, when facinf from front. Remove this cover, about 3x5 inches and tapered, and clean the screen. Some units have a red or white screen that you can pull out from the bottom of the unit, left side just behind the brush block. Clean the screen then reinstall. Check that recovery tank is properly positioned- lack of seal means less suction which translates to brush block not turning.

I can not seem to get the attachment for the upholstery cleaner to operate what am i doing wrong????

Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure.
The attachment works on the suction from the Hoover Steam Vac and it’s either a straight suction tool or a revolving brush, check the front of the machine to see if the is a switch to turn on and odd, also before you attach the upholstery tool check the end of the hose for suction, it may be that your upholstery tool may be clogged or the brushes are not spinning and a part may be broken. Feel free to check with you local vac dealer or a new or a good used part if you find out what is wrong. So if you need further assistance, 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.
