Scrub brushes not rotating

\015 Model F742 Hoover SteamVac Scrub brush not rotating when in use.\015

Hi There,
\015\012
\015\012You'll need to first diagnosis why these brushes are not spinning. When the SpinScrub brushes on a Hoover SteamVac don't spin, this can be 1 of 3 different things.
\015\012
\015\012In order to diagnosis which one of the problems is causing your problem, here's what you'll need to do.
\015\012
\015\012Step 1. The first and easiest thing you should check is to make sure that that the brush speeed selector knob on the top of the machine is turned on, and is not in the off position. This may sound obvious, but I've had several cutsomers that have come in with this exact problem, only for the brushes to be turned off. Also make sure that the SteamVac's handle is reclined, and not in the upright position. There's a switch inside that shuts the brushes off when the SteamVac is moved into the upright position. If the brushes still are not spinning, move on to step 2.
\015\012
\015\012Step 2. You'll need to remove the SpinScrub brushes from the SteamVac. Turn the machine upside down so that the brushes are facing upwards. There are four clips that hold these brushes in place. You'll need to remove the brushes from the machine by squeezing the four tabs while pulling upwards at the same time. The picture actually only shows the two tabs on the right hand side being squeezed (my left hand was holding the camera, lol), but the tabs on the left hand side are in the exact same location:

\015\012Step 3. Once the brushes have been removed, plug the machine in, make sure that the handle is reclined. Look in the SteamVac where the brushes used to be. You should see a hole that is square shaped where the brushes go into.
\015\012232c8b0.jpg\015\012
\015\012Turn the machine on, and look to see if this square shaped hole is spinning. If the hole is spinning, this indicates that either the brush block itself is bad, or there maybe something clogged (such as pet hair) in the brushes that's preventing them from spinning. If the square hole is not spinning, this indicates that your internal turbine brush gear has gone bad. Here's a link to a repair that I've written on how to replace the internal brush turbine gear if the square shaped, female receptacle hole is not spinning.
\015\012
\015\012If the square shaped hole is spinning, here's what you may do to see if the brush block is just jammed up with debris, or if the brush block itself is bad and needs to be replaced:
\015\012
\015\012Step 1. I'd say that 60% of the time that I see this problem, the main issue is that the brushes just need to be cleaned. If you have pets in the home, a lot of the time the pet hair will just be lodged inside the brushes, will prevent them from spinning. Use a pressurized water hose with spray nozzle is ideal) and spray each brush with water to dislodge any pet hair. You should be able to get these brushes spinning when you spray them. Spray each brush until the brushes are spinning pretty fast. Re-insert the brushes into the machine, and test to see if the cleaning has fixed your problem.
\015\012
\015\012 you should look at the brush stem that goes into the turbine inside the machine. This is the green pole pictured in middle of the brush block. Examine this pole to determine if the top of it has broken off. It should exactly how the picture shows it. Make sure that the plastic has not broken. If the pole has broken, you will simply need to replace the brush block.

Many thanks to Chris for cluing me into the sticky turbine problem. My vacuum had the same issue but I was able to fix it (at least for now) with some WD-40.

I took apart the turbine and it wouldn't even turn at first because of all the corrosion. However a generous dose of WD-40 into the turbine bearing loosened it up and it spins freely again.

Tip: if you are unable to turn the female brush socket (from the underside of the machine) with a screwdriver then you likely have a corroded turbine bearing. Only gentle torque is needed to turn the assembly, don't force it!

@ deedabeeda: replacing the turbine is very easy, it's held on by just four screws. Two shorter ones from its top and two long ones from the underside of the machine. Two vacuum hoses attach to it, and that's it.8_12_2012_6_54_51_pm.jpg
