Stuck Brushes on My Hoover SteamVacV2 Turbine Help!

Hi, It appears that my brushes won't turn on my Hoover v2 and I don't know how to get to the turbine to clean it. I have cleaned the brushes and the red pull out filter as stated in the manual -- can you help?
I have been unable to find a service manual anywhere online so I am unsure as to how to take it apart.
Thanks,
Robin

    I HAVE REMOVED THE BRUSHES AND AND FRONT PLASTIC HOUSING. THE SQUARE FEMALE DRIVER WILL NOT ROTATE. MOVING THE "BRUSH ON" LEVER HAS NO EFFECT. ARE THE BRUSHES POWERED BY A SEPARATE TURBINE OR ARE THEY POWERED FROM THE MOTOR? I HAVE NOT TRIED TAKING APART THE POWER TRAIN.

Did you pull the brush block out to see the the shaft hasn't broken off of the brush block? If so, then replace the brush block. From the bottom, take the screws, 2 of which will be longer ones, these hold down the turbine . Turn it over and the top cover should come off. There 2 posts at the back of the cover, they just fir tight but will come out. The turbine #23,is in the middle, near the front, remove the 2 screws on the front edge of it, unhook the tubing, it will come off. So you can take it apart and clean it out, or go ahead and replace it.

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.

The scrub brushes dont spin anymore


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 gear will have to be replaced. You can access the turbine gear by removing the hood. You can find a genuine hoover replacement part by following the link below. Just find the model number of your Steamvac.

Brushes don't turn.


no belt. the turbine that turnes the brushes is the problem. how can you tell......take the brushes out and try to turn the square peg with a flat head screwdriver, if it doesn't turn, it's the turbine.

Brushes don't work on my hoover steam vac v2


The bearing on the inside of the turbine is rusted. You will have to take the hood of the unit and unscrew the black piece that has to rub hoses going to it. Then take apart the black turbine. Inside you will find 2 white gears and a small 1/2inch bearing. Use wd40 to uncease the bearing. After this put the take pliers and make sure the metal post will turn. Spray wd40 on everything you see including Hoover for making such ****. After this put put everything back together. Now the best thing to do is get some automotive bearing grease and put a large amount on bearing and and other metal parts. Put everthing back together. Clean any hair off the brushes and you are ready. Now the bad news if your gears are worn you will have to replace the turbine. Go to an internet website and the part number will be 91001019. I know all this because I spent 6 years working for Hoover and they found it cheaper to send our jobs overseas.

Take out the screws from the bottom, there will 2 longer ones, they got into the turbine, turn it upright and take the top cover off. The turbine sits near the front, center, remove the 2 screws on the front of it, remove the hoses, then you can remove the turbine(#23).

Brushes not rotating on hoover f7425-900 steamvac v2


I had the same problem and it was inside the turbine assembly. If you take the turbine assembly off the machine and open it up, you will see the turbine blades on one side and the reduction gears on the other side. The problem on mine was a needle bearing sandwiched between two washers on the reduction gear side. This bearing/washer stack is the stabilizer for the turbine gear shaft. Mine was rusted solid. I removed the washers and bearing and cleaned them up with a wire wheel being careful not to lose any of the tiny needles. Once evrything was rust-free, I reset the needles with grease and sandwiched the bearing between the washers. I then reinstalled this stack back in the case along with the other gears, regreased everything, and buttoned it up. Brushes are spinning better than they have in a long time.

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.
