Hoover spin scrub bristles not spinning

I have a hoover that spins and scrubs. The four brushes do not spin. I have the idea that the "turbine" is air powered because I see no connection to the motor. All I see are two white hoses connected to the "turbine" housing. Could the hoses be clogged or the gears locked? I could be mistaken about the air power. Please educate me. (I opened the turbine up and added more grease thinking it might help the brushes turn more freely. They now don't turn at all). Thank You

Hey, I am wondering is anyone watching over this site. I have seen many questions about brushes not spinning on the hoover vacs but now response except one back in April that said something about taking the bottom over off and checking something but the person wrote back asking how to take off the cover and got now response. I also can't figure out how to get the cover off. Mine is the F5906-900

I have had two of these... both broken. The handle and tank on one and this one today seems to have lost a belt or gear between the brushes and the motor. The brush assembly seems to spin as it should by hand. Slight tension from pushing what sounds like some gears around. Can't open it up to see whats in there but my guess is a belt between the motor and gears on the brushes. But no entry equals trash. My origonal idea of buying the same unit for spare parts has become a waste of time, money and effort. I wonder if Dyson has jumped into this market yet?

Why it won't pick up water?


Make sure the switch is on the setting you are using, I.E. spin scrub. If this isn't the problem you may have a bad turbine blade, if the scrubber brushes aren't turning that is your problem. $45, a screw driver and general mech. abillities will fix it. http://www.vacpartswarehouse.com

Hoover F7410-900 Steam Vac Dual V scrub brushes not working


If the brushes will to spin when you try to turn them by hand remove them from the machine. If the brushes spin ok after removing them the the turbine assembly is seized up and will likely need replaced. If the brushes won't spin when they are removed from machine take the plastic cover off the brushes and clean out the gears.

Scrub brushes not rotating


Hi There,

You'll need to first diagnosis why these brushes are not spinning. When the SpinScrub brushes on a Hoover SteamVac don't spin, this can be 1 of 3 different things.

In order to diagnosis which one of the problems is causing your problem, here's what you'll need to do.

Step 1. The first and easiest thing you should check is to make sure that that the brush speeed selector knob on the top of the machine is turned on, and is not in the off position. This may sound obvious, but I've had several cutsomers that have come in with this exact problem, only for the brushes to be turned off. Also make sure that the SteamVac's handle is reclined, and not in the upright position. There's a switch inside that shuts the brushes off when the SteamVac is moved into the upright position. If the brushes still are not spinning, move on to step 2.

Step 2. You'll need to remove the SpinScrub brushes from the SteamVac. Turn the machine upside down so that the brushes are facing upwards. There are four clips that hold these brushes in place. You'll need to remove the brushes from the machine by squeezing the four tabs while pulling upwards at the same time. The picture actually only shows the two tabs on the right hand side being squeezed (my left hand was holding the camera, lol), but the tabs on the left hand side are in the exact same location:

Step 3. Once the brushes have been removed, plug the machine in, make sure that the handle is reclined. Look in the SteamVac where the brushes used to be. You should see a hole that is square shaped where the brushes go into.
232c8b0.jpg
Turn the machine on, and look to see if this square shaped hole is spinning. If the hole is spinning, this indicates that either the brush block itself is bad, or there maybe something clogged (such as pet hair) in the brushes that's preventing them from spinning. If the square hole is not spinning, this indicates that your internal turbine brush gear has gone bad. Here's a link to a repair that I've written on how to replace the internal brush turbine gear if the square shaped, female receptacle hole is not spinning.

If the square shaped hole is spinning, here's what you may do to see if the brush block is just jammed up with debris, or if the brush block itself is bad and needs to be replaced:

Step 1. I'd say that 60% of the time that I see this problem, the main issue is that the brushes just need to be cleaned. If you have pets in the home, a lot of the time the pet hair will just be lodged inside the brushes, will prevent them from spinning. Use a pressurized water hose with spray nozzle is ideal) and spray each brush with water to dislodge any pet hair. You should be able to get these brushes spinning when you spray them. Spray each brush until the brushes are spinning pretty fast. Re-insert the brushes into the machine, and test to see if the cleaning has fixed your problem.

you should look at the brush stem that goes into the turbine inside the machine. This is the green pole pictured in middle of the brush block. Examine this pole to determine if the top of it has broken off. It should exactly how the picture shows it. Make sure that the plastic has not broken. If the pole has broken, you will simply need to replace the brush block.

It can really only be one of these three things that are causing your brushes not turn. Here are links to all of the products that possibly need to purchased (if the brushes weren't just clogged) on our website for the model that you listed this repair under, the Hoover F7425-900.

New Hoover Steam Vac's brushes do not spin


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.

Hoover Steam Vac Spin Scrub


Remove the brush block, is the shaft on it or broken off. Replace the block if broken off. Turn unit over, with brush block removed, handle tilted back, is the square hole turning, if not then the turbine is bad, this is what turns the brushes.

Belt replacement Hoover carpet cleaner


Hoover steamvacs don't use belts. If the brushes are not turning, pull the brush block out, turn the machine on and see if the square hole where the brush block was, is turning. If not then the turbine is bad. Sometimes you can take the turbine apart and clean it out. most times I have found , replace it.

Hoover Spin Scrub model # F7410-900. The brushes will not spin.


Take the brush block out, is the shaft still on it or did it break off, if it broke off, then replace the brush block. If it is there and you can turn the brushes by hand, then the turbine is bad. Sometimes you can clean it out, most time you have to replace it.

Spin Scrub Brushes won't turn


If the brushes quit spinning, either the brush block shaft that goes into the turbine broke off, or the turbine is bad. This unit is tricky to take apart and then put back together again. But pull the brush asm off, then start taking out screws. But if after you pull off the brush block, look up where you will see a small square hole, turn unit on and if not turning, usually the turbine is the cause and will have to be replaced.
