SOURCE: spin-scrub brushes do not spin

hello. there is a little window by the brush control. if you open it up, you can see that there is maybe some lint covering it. scrape that off, and try again. make sure your lever is set to brushes and realease the handle release. if this doesn't work, then you probably have a problem with your gear box. this can only be serviced at a repair shop. I hope this helps. Let me know! Thanks, Renevacdoc

This unit uses a turbine assy to turn the brushes. The brushes could have something jamming them. Remove the brush unit, it is held on 2 spring hooks 1 on each side. The brush unit is driven thru a 1/4" square post, only one brush is driven and it drives the next then it drives the next etc. If something is jammed in these gears it will stop the entire brush assy. The turbine assy could be bad, but I would check the brush assy first.

Since the Steam Vac does not have any belts... the logical issue is Switch setting (Hi, Low, Off) on the base cover. The only other is dirt collection on the air intake for the brushes (unit uses air passing over plastic fan blades to spin the brushes). To clear the dirt problem, remove the clear plastic cover located just in front of the brush Switch. You can now use your finger nail (or an old tooth brush) to clean the filter screen located just below the Switch. Don't tear it, just gently remove the accumulated dust/hair.
Brushes should spin once you reassemble and power it up!!

SOURCE: the brush won't spin on my hoover shampooer

This machine has an airdriven turbine that drives the brushes. The turbine needs to be replace because it is spinning on a steel bushing which gets rusty from all the water going through it.

I have a hoover floor mate hard floor cleaner and the brushes won't spin


Hi, it's Jeremy from Crucial Vacuum.

In the link below you will find the user manual for your Hoover Floor Mate vacuum:
http://hoover.com/file/597/

Here are a few repair tips to make fixing your vacuum easy. Your Hoover brush-roll is connected to the motor by two different sized geared belts. Over time, the belt's gears wear down and stretch out losing the grooves and tension that turn the roller. When this happens you will simply have to attach a new set of belts. Another reason why your brush is not spinning could be that there is debris stuck in the roller and/or bearings. You can either use a can of compressed air to remove the debris or simply remove it with your hand.

Motor making grinding noise and burning smell


A bit too late I fear. There is either grit from an overloaded dust bag in the motor or the brushes have worn out. Spares and not expensive.
