Having problems with your Hoover F5906-900 Upright Steam Vacuum ?

Brushes won't turn.

\015 /the square hole that the spindel on the brushes goes into to make the brushes turn won't turn even when I put a screwdriver in it and try to force it to turn. Should it turn and if it doesn't does that mean the motor is stuck in the position?\015\012\015\012Cliff\015

Answers :

Make sure you check the selector for brushes on the top OFF/ON.
\015\012
\015\012If it is "ON" you have a locked up turbine. This is caused by storing the machine in damp places generally. Or by leaving the tanks on while you store the machine.
\015\012
\015\012The Brush driver turbine assembly is extremely easy to get to:
\015\012
    \015\012
  1. remove the hood screws (6) from underneath.
  2. \015\012
  3. remove the hood.
  4. \015\012
  5. remove the 2 screws for the turbine on top and the 2 underneath. (it will be obvious which one is the brush driver)
  6. \015\012
  7. remove the single waterline connected to the assy.
  8. \015\012
  9. it should come off easily at this point.
\015\012You can either try to take the assy apart but generally once they're shot, they're garbage.
\015\012I suggest running out to your local Hoover Warranty parts center with the part to make sure you get the right one. Hoover makes running changes to these machines. Just because they have the same model number doesn't make 2 steamvacs the same, take the part. Reassemble in reverse order!
