Answers :

Solution for Hoover SteamVac (F7452-900) brushes not spinning
\015\012Uses the turbine model and same solution would be similar. Root cause is simply the main gear attached to turbine becomes stuck. This problem should not happen as often as I see other people also having this problem. Must be a poor design on Hoover’s part. It takes about 30 minutes and a Phillips screw driver and wrench. Pretty easy, just have to remember what screws went where.
\015\012Remove brushes, and front suction cover
\015\012On the bottom of the machine:
\015\012Remove the 4 screws behind brushes which attach the top faceplate
\015\012Remove the 2 screws from base in the sunken holes
\015\012Remove the two long silver screws from base which connect all the way to turbine assembly
\015\012Stand machine upright
\015\012Remove the floor select switch handle
\015\012Remove 1 screw near the center beside the intake hole
\015\012Remove the 2 screws over the rear wheels
\015\012Remove faceplate cover, the front will need to be gently pried over the clear plastic part, be careful about the upright disengaging lever under faceplate, move it under the metal wire
\015\012Remove the 2 screws in the front of the turbine assembly
\015\012Remove the 2 hoses on either side
\015\012Disengage the bar on the floor selector switch
\015\012Pull out the turbine assembly
\015\012Remove the 4 screws and 3 clips to separate the assembly
\015\012Remove the filter (which is most likely clean since, cleaning this is the manufactures only solution)
\015\012Remove the large white gear and with a wrench remove ball bearing
\015\012Remove other large white gear
\015\012Note that the metal gear attached to turbine will not move (this was my problem), with a wrench gently grab metal gear and twist free. Spin turbine to make sure it moves freely.
Put everything back together again and you should be good to go.
Thanks to Mark406 for the excellent instructions to get down to the turbine. My problem was not as simple as his though. When I got to the turbine, I discovered that water had gotten in and the roller bearing was a rusted mess. I initially thought that just a thorough cleaning would do since all the gears and turbine would spin freely. But when I buttoned up the turbine and tested it, it would bind. I finally noticed that the bearing was frozen on its spindle. I broke it loose but it won't be long before it freezes up again. No way to lube it. Only solution would be to pull the bearing and press a new one on.
