Question about Hoover F7425-900 SteamVac V2 Widepath Upright Vacuum
How do you get to the turbine to check it?
There are only two screws and then some black plastic things that look like the could be part of getting the cover off.
I actually think my problem is in the switch. I turned the brushes off to do a chair and now when I switch it on they don't work.
Any advice is helpful thanks Cindi
Unless something came apart, there is no switch, when you push that knob to turn off the brushes, you are actually moving an actuator arm on the top of turbine. Take the brush block out and there should be a shaft sticking up, if broken off, then replace the brush block. Then look up where the brush block was, tur the unit on, if the square hole is turning then the turbine is ok, if not then there is a problem with it. Take out the screws from the bottom, I believe there is 4 or 6 for the top housing, there are 2 longer screws, they hold down the turbine, take those out also. Turn the unit over, and remove the top cover, near the back of it, on each side, there is a post that the cover goes into, should just pull out. Then ther are 2 more screws on the front of the turbine, unhook the hoses and it will come out. #23 is the turbine.
