Is the shaft on the brush block or did it break off, if it did, replace the brush block. On the top, left rear corner is a lever that moves baack or forward depending on the handle being upright or tilted back for usuage. Is it moving? If not then you have a problem there. Otherwise if the square hole doesn't move when it is turned on, and the lever is switch to the on position, then replace the turbine.

SOURCE: Wheel in Hoover SpinSrub turbine broke

The turbine is the only way to go. ther is no way to get that part only. Your only option to find a used one is to call on other hoover dealers if the have a box of used parts that fit your model.

Spin brushes not turning


Most all Hoover SteamVacs rely on a turbine to create suction and spin the brushes. The brush block (removable, just clips in) will have one of the 5 or 6 brushes with a stem inserted up and in the turbine. Hoover did a poor job sealing the hole that stem goes through and water and cleaner seep up to the lower bearing on the turbine and the bearing siezes. The turbine has a gear assembly inside! It is not easy to replace the turbine, especially the first time because what needs to be removed can be a head scratcher. However goes easier the second time. The turbine can be taken apart once out and I have used light grease to free up the bearing and gears but it's only a temporary fix. Different models have different part # turbines so pay attention when ordering the part. Need a work bench environment to do this. On occasion the brush block itself can get stuck because the brushes gear mesh together and the stemed brush drives them all. They can and do bind up with junk and do wear down and bind. If you can't turn all 5 or 6 brushes by spinning with your fingers on the stem, the block itself could need replacing. The block and brushes do come apart for cleaning but be careful because they are plastic clips on both halves of cover/retainer and can break.

Brushes on my hoover spinscrub model F7411900 wont spin


vanger cheva in post 1 got the correct answer. I just disassembled my f7411900 with some difficulty and took the turbine apart. Sure enough the bearing on the shaft was froze from rust. I was able to free it up in a vice and screw driver big enough to grab and turn the middle of the bearing. I used 3-1 oil and it now is smooth again. Not sure for how long. It was then I found the instructions by vanger above. There is no belt in this unit. The turbine is driven by water that turns the brushes.

Brushes donot turn when asked to shampoo


The brushes are turning by an air driven turbine. The turbine has a pivot bushing made of steel inside of it that gets rusty because of the water that is running through it. The turbine will have to be replaced. You can find a genuine hoover replacement part by following the link below.

Brushes not working


brushes not turning are usually caused by the turbine bearings have seized. The turbine cost is about $35 average. on the bottom you can check a pull out filter to clean. there are also 2 screws that are recessd check by hand for tightness that hold the turbine. checkthe brushes for cleaning and free of debris. check the square shaft on the brushes as well. take it to a trusted vac shop who works on hoovers if you are not mechanically inclined for this type of repair.

Brushes wont turn on shampooer


Dear Momneville
I have the same steamcleaner and had the same problem, I took mine apart a found a clog between the turbine and the wheel that the turbine moves by vacuum when it gets glogged there is no vacuum to move the wheel. If you are not mechanically inclined in suggest you do not take it apart unless you think you can get it back together properly.

Hope this helps

Sorry, you will not find that one part available for sale. You will need the assembly from the manufacturer, or may check online sales/auctions.

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.

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.

Hoover cleaner model f5865-900


There is no belt, either the turbine part #43191003, or the brush block, the shaft that goes up into the turbine broke off part #48437022. The turbine is what drives the brushes.
