Question about Hoover Floormax F4300 Upright Wet/Dry Vacuum
One of the bruhes stopped turning everything eles seems to work. I took it apart and cleaned it and looked for broken or loose fittings, all looked fine
my husband took it apart today and the impellers were gunked up with black stuff.
he used these pictures that someone else generously posted. ours was slightly different in internal design, but they are helpful regardless.
here is an exploded diagram of the 5903, 04, etc. it will help you see if any parts are missing or broken.
parts list if you need some:
it's working fine now. sucks much better too. what a difference!
guess for the $179 these things avg, they just need annual maintenance. I wouldn't pay someone to do it though.

The bearings in the turbine that turns the brushes are very cheap. They rust and seize. Sometimes they can be greased and reused. If the corrosion is too bad the turbine has to be replaced.
