Question about Hoover SteamVac F5914-900 SpinScrub Upright Vacuum
I have three dogs and know the hair can clog up the brushes so they don't spin. They seem to move freely when I move them manually but don't work when the unit is on. I stil have the suction and everything else. I saw a fix it that said to remove the bottom of the unit but I am not sure exactly how to go about that. I usually am pretty good with my hands, so I am not intimidated on do it yourself jobs. I need to clean my carpet as I am having a wedding this Sat. Please help!
I have one and if the container is not snapped on well brushes will not rotate. Take the cover back of and make sure float falls then put it back on. Took me a while to figure that one out.

The brushes are usually connected to a motor by a rubber belt. These can wear out and snap (particularly if the brushes are clogged with hair). Usually the bottom of the vacuum can be removed by undooing a few screws and gently pulling it downwards. If the bottom doesn't want to come off, hunt around for any screws you may have missed - the designers seem to think it's funny to hide them. Once the bottom is off, check the belt and remove any hair wrapped around the ends of the brush bar. If the belt is broken you will need to find a replacement.
