(1) Remove the brush block and assure the presence of the square drive pin on top of one brush. It should be about 1/4 inch square, two inches long to connect o the drive mechanism.

(2) Remove and clean the filter screen from the base, behind the brushes. Squeeze the two red tabs together, and pull down from the base. Clean the hiar/debris from the screen.

(3) Assure the Brush Speed knob on the hood is NOT set to the OFF position.

SOURCE: 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.

You need to replace your belt(s). Your model has two belts. They can be found here:

Hoover Mach 6 Flat Belt

Hoover Mach 6 V Belt

The flat belt is the one that usually wears the fastest. You are supposed to change it at least once a year.

Where is the belt located on my hoover steam shampoer


There is probably not a belt. The brushes on the carpet cleaner head and attachments work from air and there is a roller bearing deep inside that will wear out and the brushes won't turn. I've found no way to fix this. I consider it a design defect.

On hoover steam carpet cleaner, the brushes do not rotate on low or high settings.


Follow these steps if the Brushes Fail to Spin
•If the brushes on your Hoover carpet cleaner fail to spin, there may be a problem---some sort of blockage---with the suction or with the belt that turns the brushes.
Turn the Hoover carpet cleaner over, and inspect the brush area. Debris, strings, or pet hair may be tangled in the rollers, keeping them from turning. Use a pair of scissors to cut away any obstructions in this area. Flip the Hoover carpet cleaner back over, and turn it on to see if cleaning the rollers has solved the problem.
To check the belt, turn the Hoover carpet cleaner over, and remove the bottom plate screw with a Phillips head screwdriver. Investigate the belt area to see if it is broken or has somehow slipped off. If it is broken, you can order a part from Hoover.com or from many of the other online parts stores.
When the belt arrives, simply slide it on in place of the broken belt, reattach the bottom plate and turn the Hoover carpet cleaner right-side up. Turn it on to test your solution.

I have a Hoover carpet cleaner - Model # f7441-980. My brushes do not rotate.


There is a plastic piece on the back of the block brush (spin scrubbers) these wear out or break. You may need to replace the block brush. You can find the parts and a schematic below follow the link. Please don't forget to give positive feedback.

The belt on my hoover cordless is not spinning when I turn it on


You need to replace the belt. Even though the belt may look fine it can be stretched and therefore it won' t turn the roller brush against the resistance of the carpet. You can get Hoover replacement belts here:

Hoover steam vac deluxe - no suction and the scrubbers aren't spinning uless you tilt off the floor.


I would suspect that your turbine assembly bearings need to be replaced. also check for debris inside the brush assembly. check the intake filter under the front clear cover. verify the recovery tank lid is on securely, as well as the foam filter on the tank lid is clean.
