The cover is only secured by 3 screws. One on the top, and two other on the underside. The two on the underside are located on the black plastic and are deeply recessed. After removing these 3 screws, on the top there are 2 snap in post. Simply squeeze these posts inward, towards the center and the cover should lift off.

SOURCE: I have a Hoover Steam

your belt is probably brokan. underneath the machine you will see some screws carefully take them out writing down which screw went where. than you can pop the plate off and look in there and see if your belt is brokan. If it is the belt number is important to find in your book that came with the machine. hope this helps you.

My hoover steam vac is making a horrible noise and smells like its burning


Something may have jammed the brush roller, preventing rotation. This causes the motor shaft to rotate in one spot on the belt, causing the burning rubber smell. Eventually, the belt will break. You need to find what caused the jam and remove it. It would be a good idea to replace the belt as a burned belt is unlikely to last much longer.

Hoover F7410-900 Steam Vac Dual V scrub brushes not working


If the brushes will to spin when you try to turn them by hand remove them from the machine. If the brushes spin ok after removing them the the turbine assembly is seized up and will likely need replaced. If the brushes won't spin when they are removed from machine take the plastic cover off the brushes and clean out the gears.

How do we get at the drive belt? The cover seems to be sealed.


There is no belt in a Hoover SteamVac. The brushes are turned by an air driven turbine. If the brushes are not turning, it is usually because the turbine has seized up and may need replacement. Insert a screwdriver into the square hole that the pin on the brush assembly normally fits into and see if it turns. If it doesn't, you will need a new turbine.

The Hoover steam vac dual v does not spin its brushes and I dont know how to dismantel it to view the belt .


There is no belt on the steam vac - it operates on air flow. Remove the brush and insert a flat screwdriver into the square hole. If it does not turn, the turbine has seized up and must be replaced. Remember that the brush will not turn unless the lower tank is in place, and the handle is tilted back.

My brushes wo't spin on my spin vac dual v carpet cleaner


Solution: Remove the clear plastic cover located in front of the brush control switch (I used a butter knife). Locate the small screen and remove the dirt and hair from it with your fingernail or an old tooth brush. Restore the cover and you should be good to go.

Since the Steam Vac does not have any belts... the logical issue is Switch setting (Hi, Low, Off) on the base cover. The only other is dirt collection on the air intake for the brushes (unit uses air passing over plastic fan blades to spin the brushes). To clear the dirt problem, remove the clear plastic cover located just in front of the brush Switch. You can now use your finger nail (or an old tooth brush) to clean the filter screen located just below the Switch. Don't tear it, just gently remove the accumulated dust/hair.
Brushes should spin once you reassemble and power it up!!

Belt on steam vac v2


The V2 doesn't use a belt, it uses a turbine to drive the brush block, If brushes are not turning, either the shaft on the brush block broke off, or the turbine is bad and will have to be replaced.
