Having problems with your Hoover F6212-900 / F6215-900 SteamVac Agility Upright Vacuum ?

Brushes do not spin on my steam vac

\015 I have model number F7221-900 but Hoover said that F7222-900 was the same machine and my brushes quit working. The steam vac works as far as sucking up water and the ulphostery brushes spin when the attachment is hooked up but the main brushes underneath do no spin. If you grab them you can move the side to side but they are locked up when it comes to turning them all the way around. What is wrong?I'm also pretty sure I need to replace the turbine. How do I. I've tried to find a repair manual (if there is such a thing) with no luck. My machine is a F6215-900 but the problem is the same.V.P.\015

Answers :

Take the brush block out and see if the brushes turn of, if not replace the brush block. Otherwise it is the turbine(#23) that has to be replaced, sometimes you can take the turbine apart and clean it. The top cover has to come off, turn it over, take out the brush block, take out the screws under that, there are other screws, under where the turbine sits, there are 2 longer screws, if you don't have them out, then you missed them, there 2 screws on the front end of the turbine, unhook the koses and it will come off.
