My advice is to take it back for a refund if possible. They just don't hold up and are terrible machines. The manuals are there but mostly useless. Try this link:

How to clean brushes on hoover steam vac


Hi, it's Allie from Crucial Vacuum!

Cleaning the brushes on your unit is crucial in maintaining your Hoover performing at it's best and it is very easy to do. First, make sure your unit is off and unplugged, and make sure to remove the clean and dirty water tanks to avoid any possible leaking.

With the handle in the upright position, tilt the unit back and rest it on the floor. Grad the brush assembly and pull firmly until you remove them from the unit. Clean the brushes with running water until the water runs clear and the brushes are clean.

Brushes won't rotate on hoover steam vac. I have removed them and cleaned.


The brushes turn by the airflow from the vacuum suction turning a turbine motor to spin the brushes. First try to spin the brushes by hand. If they won't turn it usually means the brushes are clogged with hair and debris or need replaced or the turbine could be seized up. If the brushes won't spin reach under the brushes and push the little tabs and remove the brush block asssembly from the machine. If the brushes spin freely after you remove them from the machine then that means that most likely the turbine is seized and will need to be repaced. If the turbine is not seized you may simply just have a clogged filter screen. Most steam vacs have a red screen filter either on top or underneath the machine. On the top it is under a little clear plastic cover that you have to pry off before you can pull the screen out to clean it. If it's underneath you can pull it out and clean it.

The spin brushes won't spin Hoover Steam Vac F5874-900


The brushes are driven by air pressure passing through a small turbine. There is a filter in the path of the air flow. When it gets full of dirt it prohibits the air flow. You need to open the base and clean the filter out. It will run perfectly.

Brushes on Hoover steam vac dual v do not turn


(1) Assure the Brush Control on the hood is NOT set to the OFF position.
(2) Remove the brush assembly by pulling/unlatching it from base on each side.
(3) Does one of the brushes have the drive pin present? It should be about ¼ inch square, and two inches long. It attaches the brushes to the drive mechanism.
(4) Remove and clean the intake filter. One the base of the cleaner, behind the brushes, squeeze the two red abs together and pull the panel down to access the screen. Clean the hair/debris off the screen and reassemble.

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!!

Brushes don't turn


I Had the same problem, The brushes are operated by water pressure. Under the machine were the brushes are is a white peice of plastic pull this out and try cleaning the screen. I found this when I removed the cover and lubricated the gears at the brushes, If that does nto work you will have to remove the turbines and lubricate.

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.

Spin brushes spin freely on steam vac when not attached to cleaner indicator screen not dirty speed selector is in high position brushes are clean spin brush indicator when brushes attached to machine...


If this is a Hoover Steam vac, the turbine which drives the brushes is bad. If not a Hoover, then what is it, they are different, need brand and model number.

Problems with the Hoover Steam vac Heated carpet cleaner


This happens when the filter on the inside of the lid for the dirty water tank is pushed all of the way up. You need to leave a 1/4 in. gap from the top to the top of the filter.
