Hello,

The Hoover SteamVac's are notorious for \015\012this exact problem. There are several things that can be causing this \015\012probelm.

First, what you'll need to do is take the brush block \015\012out of the machine. To do this there are 4 clips on the brush block. You\015\012 will need to turn the machine upside down, and pull down on the brush \015\012block to where it won't pull out any farther. There are 4 clips, 2 on \015\012top, and 2 on the rear of the brushes. (See picture I have circled one \015\012of the clips in red). Simply press these \015\012clips at the same time, and pull the brush block out of the machine. I'd\015\012 say that 60% of the time that I see this problem, the main issue is \015\012that the brushes just need to be cleaned. If you have pets in the home, a\015\012 lot of the time the pet hair will just be lodged inside the brushes, \015\012will prevent them from spinning. Use a pressurized water hose with spray\015\012 nozzle is ideal) and spray each brush with water to dislodge any pet \015\012hair. You should be able to get these brushes spinning when you spray \015\012them. Spray each brush until the brushes are spinning pretty fast. \015\012Re-insert the brushes into the machine, and test to see if the cleaning \015\012has fixed your problem. If the cleaning still fails to fix the problem, \015\012take the brushes back out of the machine.

One you have the \015\012brushes out of the machine, the first thing you should look at the brush\015\012 stem that goes into the turbine inside the machine. This is the green \015\012pole pictured in middle of the brush block. Examine this pole to \015\012determine if the top of it has broken off. It should exactly how the picture shows it. \015\012Make sure that the plastic has not broken.

If the pole has \015\012broken, you will simply need to replace the brush block. If the pole is \015\012not damaged, the next thing to try is to turn the machine on while you \015\012have the brushes out. Look inside the machine, where the pole goes into \015\012the turbine (also important, make sure the switch for the brushes is \015\012turned to "Rotating Brush Speed Hi), this female receptacle should spin \015\012when the machine is turned on. It is important the try this when the \015\012foot pedal is released, and the handle down, and not in the upright \015\012position, as there is an internal switch that shuts the brushes off when\015\012 the machine is in the upright position.

If you notice that the \015\012female receptacle where the brush pole is inserted is spinning, then \015\012your turbine is fine. If this part is not spinning, then most likely you\015\012 will need to replace your turbine.

I hope this helps you with \015\012your problem. If not, please feel free to request a repair clarification\015\012 and I'd be happy to walk you through the diagnosing. I also can provide\015\012 you with a blown up parts schematic to your machine, please just get \015\012the model number off the back of the machine and provide, and provide me\015\012 with the full model number. I would be happy to provide any technical support \015\012you need, just request a clarification on the repair.

Check that strings of cotton or similar material have not collected on the shaft at each end of the roller to jam the brushes and if so, remove the material. Otherwise the brush belt has probably stretched or broken.
