Having problems with your Vacuums ?

Machine makes a motor noise, but brushes won't turn. Can't see a belt anywhere & can't open it up. Hoover SpinSteam Model #F7431-900


Answers :

Hello,

\015\012This unfortunately is a very notorious problem for the Hoover SteamVac's. I have written a pretty detailed step by step guide on how to diagnosis, and fix this problem though.

\015\012Here's a link to the solution I've written on Fixya. A lot of the times the brushes just need to be removed and cleaned, but it may also be the turbine gear assembly has gone bad. Your model doesn't have a belt, instead it's a turbine gear that drives your spin scrub brushes.

Hoover Mach 6 U5198-900 vacuum roller brush won't turn. I had opened the bottom to clean hair off the roller. the belts are not broken. When I closed it and turned it on, now the roller brush won't turn. I can push and turn it by hand, but not easily. Then I noticed the brush on/off switch is turned off, but when I step on it, it won't turn on. I was thinking I let something get out of place when I opened the bottom, but can't see what.

You probably should have replaced the flat belt(38528035) also. But the drive belt has a idler wheel(#13) to engage it, is it riding on the belt, if not if may have jammed to one side and able to spring up against the V belt. It could have broke al ... Vacuums
