Is the lid for the tank locked on all the way round? The filter on the underside of this lid should have a 1/4 gap from the lid to the top of the filter. Is the duct in place, front of the tank. Any of these will cause the problem.

Is there a more efficient way to clean the brush assembly on the max extract dual v other than running the assembly under water? The bristles are loaded with carpet fuzz and remains of doggy doo


Following is the procedure for removing the brushes.
  • Your cleaner is equipped with removable brushes. Follow these directions for changing brush assemblies or for easy cleaning. How to Remove To prevent possible leaking, remove Clean Water Tank and Dirty Water Tank. Set tanks aside. With handle in upright position, tilt cleaner back until handle rests on the floor. 5.3 Grab brush assembly and pull firmly.
  • The brushes can be cleaned under running water. ! CAUTION ! To reduce the risk of injury from moving parts, unplug cleaner before servicing.

Hoover steamvac 50 stopped spinning


Hi! The brushes can stop spinning if something is obstructing them such as carpet fibers, hair, dirt or debris. Remove the brushes from the cleaner by grasping the plastic outer housing and pulling firmly away from the cleaner. Remove any debris and run it under running water to clean. On the back of the brush-block assembly there's a plastic drive pin that rotates all the brushes when turned. Turn the drive pin and ensure that all brushes are making a complete 360° degree turn. If the brushes are getting stuck or if a brush falls out then the brush-block will need to be replaced. Follow the link here to order a replacement brush-block for the Steamvac Search Results. Below is a list of models this brush will fit.
F5912-900, F5914-900F5915-100, F5915-900, F5915-905, F5917-900, F5918-900, FH50041, FH50042, FH50043, FH50044, FH50045, FH50046, FH50047, FH50048CA
Hope this helps!

Hoover brush and wash instruction manual


Hi there! To prepare for cleaning, put the solution and water in the top tank. While cleaning, all the dirty water gets sucked into the bottom tank. To clean squeeze trigger to release cleaning solution and slowly push carpet cleaner forward, this equals one wet stroke. Continue to squeeze trigger and slowly pull carpet cleaner back toward you (second wet stroke). Release trigger and slowly push carpet cleaner forward over area just sprayed with solution (dry stroke). Then slowly pull carpet cleaner back toward you without squeezing trigger (dry stroke). To avoid saturating the carpet don't do more than 4 wet strokes over one area. Always end with dry strokes. Here is a link to view the instruction manual if needed.

Move the carpet height control switch to a higher position if the vacuum is difficult to push. If the setting is too low for the carpet being cleaned, the brushes press against the floor preventing the vacuum from moving easily.Set to a medium-high height setting then check.Slide the "Self-Propel" button to the "ON" position if the cleaner does not self-propel. -----------
The self-propel feature operates only when the cleaner switch and the self propel button are both ON. ---------- Try this settings and check.This should help.Thanks.Helpmech.

On hoover steam carpet cleaner, the brushes do not rotate on low or high settings.


Follow these steps if the Brushes Fail to Spin
•If the brushes on your Hoover carpet cleaner fail to spin, there may be a problem---some sort of blockage---with the suction or with the belt that turns the brushes.
Turn the Hoover carpet cleaner over, and inspect the brush area. Debris, strings, or pet hair may be tangled in the rollers, keeping them from turning. Use a pair of scissors to cut away any obstructions in this area. Flip the Hoover carpet cleaner back over, and turn it on to see if cleaning the rollers has solved the problem.
To check the belt, turn the Hoover carpet cleaner over, and remove the bottom plate screw with a Phillips head screwdriver. Investigate the belt area to see if it is broken or has somehow slipped off. If it is broken, you can order a part from Hoover.com or from many of the other online parts stores.
When the belt arrives, simply slide it on in place of the broken belt, reattach the bottom plate and turn the Hoover carpet cleaner right-side up. Turn it on to test your solution.

The brushes will not turn but the shampooer will come on


1) check the filter by the spin indicator (the plastic cover snaps off). Clean if necessary. See if this solves your problem.

2) take out the spin brush assembly (pull out, there may be tabs you need to push to get it all the way out. Clean out dirt and hair. This may be all you need to do, if not take step 3

3) turn on the machine with the brush assembly out. Do you see where the square shaft the drives the brushes goes in? If the socket does not spin, you probably have a seized up turbine assembly.

4) remove the top that covers the motor/turbine (you probably have to take out some screws) The turbine assembly is towards the front. Remove this (again, a couple of screws) and turn it over--there will be some gears. If you can get these gears turning smoothly together you should get the turbine working again. I used a pair of pliers to turn the metal shaft.

Put everything back together and try it out!

MY WIFE BOUGHT THIS FOR ME FOR FATHERS DAY GIFT ABOUT ALMOST 2 YEARS NOW OR SO,BUT I HAVE THIS PROBLEM THAT THE BRUSH DOS'NT SPIN ANYMORE EVERYTIME I PUT THE SWITCH ON FOR BRUSH ON,THE HOSES BRUSH SPIN IS...


This unit uses a turbine assy to turn the brushes. The brushes could have something jamming them. Remove the brush unit, it is held on 2 spring hooks 1 on each side. The brush unit is driven thru a 1/4" square post, only one brush is driven and it drives the next then it drives the next etc. If something is jammed in these gears it will stop the entire brush assy. The turbine assy could be bad, but I would check the brush assy first.

My hoover carpet scrubber the brushes won


(1) Remove the brush block and assure the presence of the square drive pin on top of one brush. It should be about 1/4 inch square, two inches long to connect o the drive mechanism.

(2) Remove and clean the filter screen from the base, behind the brushes. Squeeze the two red tabs together, and pull down from the base. Clean the hiar/debris from the screen.

(3) Assure the Brush Speed knob on the hood is NOT set to the OFF position.

Belt replacement Hoover carpet cleaner


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.
