Question about Hoover V1 SteamVac SpinScrub Vacuum
There already was the same problem asked and I read the answer and I had already been trying to take the bottom over off and couldn't figure out how. The other person wrote back and said they couldn't figure out how to get it off either. There was no response printed for him. My vac is a hoover F5906-900 How do you get it off. Thank you
This is an update from my last post. There are a bunch of people with this problem. The first thing is to check the little slide out lint trap on the bottom (red on my machine). If this is clogged the brushes won't spin--so I've heard. Check these websites www.mendmy.com/answers.php?id=24062 and for the part schematic for the machine If your machine is different you can specify a search to get a diagram of the correct one. www.vacshopusa.com/f7425.htm Good Luck!

Make sure that that the lid for the dirty water tank is locked on to the bucket, the other is make sure that the filter on the inside of the lid is not all the way up, needs to be a gap 1/4 inch or so.

This machine has no belts. There is an air driven turbine that propels the brushes. If you look under the little glass window at the left front corner of the machine, there is an intake screen just above the indicator dial. That screen is there to keep debris from entering the turbine and will have to be kept clean. If it is clogged, then the turbine will not function.It is also possible that moisture has entered the turbine and siezed the bearings. If that is the case, the turbine would have to be replaced. Also, because this turbine works off the suction of the motor, if the recovery tank lid is not on correctly, then the suction loss will effect the brushes. Check the lid and make sure it is on right.
