Do you hear the motor for the beater bar brush running? If so, you'll probably need to replace the brush drive belt.. If not.. you may have a broken wire suppling power to the brush motor.. or the switch is bad.. Hope that helps..

Brushes don't rotate during floor cleaning


Check that no strings or other debris is clogging the brush wheels. If it isnt that check that the belt isnt broken connecting the brush to the motor. If that is ok, most likely the motor is blown and not turning the belt.

Hoover steam vac model f7425-900 filter is


The brush system on this model has a poor engineering design in that the brushes are running off an air turbine, which uses a steel bushing to spin the turbine which gets rusty from the moisture when the machine is being used. No long term solver. I would replace the machine with a Dirt Devil Platinum Force model

The brushes stopped turning. I cleaned the filter


Can you rotate the brushes manually (grab some of the yellow bristles and rotate the brushes). If they are not jammed, then your air fan drive is clogged or broken. Air must pass through the fan to spin the brushes... so confirm air flow by powering the machine on and feeling for decent air flow. Clear any obstructions that my restrict air flow....

My brushes are not turning


There is a plastic shaft on the back of the block brush (spin scrubbers), these wear out or break. You may need to replace the block brush. Or if the shaft is not broken it could also be the Turbine Gear. This is what the block brush shaft goes into. You can get access to it by taking off the hood. You can find the parts and a schematic below follow the link. Please don't forget to give positive feedback.

I cleaned filter and the brushes are still not rotating.

Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. It probably is not the filter that will start the brushes turning again, it may be a few other things. There is a switch in the front that indicates brushes on and brushes off, and the switch could be broken, it could be that the brushes come in an assembly and the assm could be belt driven and you would have to replace the belt or the drive mechanism the turns the brushes is broken. These are just suggestions and you should check the schematic in your owner’s manual under trouble shooting. If you don’t have a owner’s manual, please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or in the yellow pages, or contact the factory phone number or website to further assist you with your questions.
