Having problems with your Hoover F5870-900 SteamVac Vacuum ?

How do you remove the brushes on a hoover steamvac to clean them?

Answers :

Hoover makes running changes on these style steamvacs without changing the model numbers. One of the following or both.
\015\012Four tabs (opaque/white in color) about a 1/4 of the way in from each corner of the plastic brush block that need to be depressed to release the block. (most common) Slide the brush as far out as you can with out putting much tension on them and simply depress them. These are often brittle take great care not to bust them. Gently wiggle the brush block to release the drive spindle.
\015\012Two large tabs at either end of the brush block. Slide the brush out as far as you can (release previously mentioned tabs) and then wiggle gently towards the front and the back of the machine. The top tabs (generally black) will catch on the outer eges and be very easily seen and pressed with your finger.
\015\012To clean them simply drop the assembly in a bucket of soapy water overnight (no metal to rust nothing to corrode) then clean with hose. I carefully use a pressure washer on mine.
\015\012To reinstall brushblock make sure drive spindal is on correct side by lining up hole with spindle, and gently push the block into place while making sure the guides on either end are correctly aligned. All done, go clean some carpets.
