Question about Hoover F5866-900 SteamVac Deluxe Wet/Dry Vacuum
No question you are the man on these threads. Much respect!
I have a hoover steamVac and need the schematics for step-by-step disassembly. I noticed in another post you had similar schematics that i have been searching the internet FOREVER for. You are a GOD if you can provide this!
Basically my brushes spin very little when cleaning the carpet. No question something is wrong. (cleaned everything up and still have considerable resistance with the brushes)--they barely move.
I need to tear this beast down and inspect it for worn or damaged parts and schematics to my machine would be a the greatest thing since the invention of the wheel. lmao.
any help would be greatly appreciated.
Check the ank valve to make sure when you push it in that water is coming out. The reservior asm, (the tank bottom sits on this)is bad or the rod in the handle isn't pushing the reservior asm when you squeeze the trigger.

Hoover steamvacs don't use belts. If the brushes are not turning, pull the brush block out, turn the machine on and see if the square hole where the brush block was, is turning. If not then the turbine is bad. Sometimes you can take the turbine apart and clean it out. most times I have found , replace it.

Hoover Steam Vac Spin Scrub Carpet Cleaner won't...
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
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.

You are on the right track! Place a screwdriver (flatbladed) into the white drive square and try to turn it. If it is locked up the drive assembly is your problem. It is very common for these parts to lock up because of the moisture involved with these machines. The only way to fix this is by replacing the drive unit, simply remove the hood of the machine and you will find 4 screws and one hose hold this drive in place.
If the gear assembly turns just fine you have a problem elsewhere. More than likely it has something to do with the dirty water tank. All the drives and pumps on these run off the suction created in the recovery tank. I would remove the tank take the lid off and then place it all back again. Then attempt to run the machine.
If the tank is on fine, the white gear turns ok and the brushes still will not turn:
Time to go back and inspect that brush block. The drive tab may be brolken off too short, or something else to do with that particular part.
In the case you can find nothing wrong with any of this, i would contact the local hoover warranty service center. A locator is on the hoover website. Hoover picks out the best vacuum dealers to service their product, for a small fee they would probably be able to tell you just what is wrong with it.
Best of Luck!

If you are handy with a screwdriver undo the casing to access the roller. Once open usually about 4-5 screws you will see that the drivebelt ( rubber band ) has broken. This is the piece you need to replace. Usually most electrical store selling cleaners have these. Take the piece along or get the part number from the manual and replace it yourself. Cheaper than having a tech do it at $90 an hr plus the $5 part
