Question about Hoover Floormax F4300 Upright Wet/Dry Vacuum
SOURCE: Hoover model 5906-900 spinscrub
I had the same problem. Turned out to be so simple. Look down at the machine. On the right is the green spiral to indicate the wheels are turning. Right above that is a cover that can be popped off to allow access to a small filter. If the filter is blocked, air intake is blocked, and the brushes will not turn. Mine was clogged. Took the 2 seconds to remove the material and the machine was fixed!

my f5809 2-3 yrs old just started not sucking the water up (wouldn't yu know it after i just lent it to my mother in law) i went over to look at it and found the rubber gasket in the recovery tank between where the water comes up and into the lid had @1/4 " piece torn out. i stuck a piese of newspaper (tempory patch) between the gasket and lid, locking the 'patch' in place and it sucks again. i found this site while looking for a replacement gasket. maybe you have the same problem

There is a plastic cover over the spinner indicator. If you take the plastic cover off there is also a little filter in that area (almost like the spinner is on the floor and the filter is on the wall). If you clean this filter it may start working again. I had the same problem before and it worked for me. I found the info in the user's manual for my model. Hope this works for you as well.

This machine has an airdriven turbine that drives the brushes. The turbine needs to be replace because it is spinning on a steel bushing which gets rusty from all the water going through it.
