Brushes not working and brush switch is on - Hoover F7431-900 SteamVac Vacuum


Answers :

The brushes for that unit turn by the suction on the machine. Please check to be sure the recovery tank is on the machine correctly and that the lid is on the recovery tank correctly.

\015\012If the lid is on correctly, try taking the brushes out of the machine by pressing the four tabs on the brush block under the machine. (sometimes 2 black tabs at either end of the block)
\015\012You will find that there is a small plastic stem that rides inside the machine. this stem sticks out of the top of the brush block and is what drives the brushes. Many times this is brolken off and is a common problem. If the drive stem is just fine, try to turn it. If it turns easily and the brushes turn leave this alone, if the brushes will not turn freely clean out the gummed up brushes and it should solve your problem.
\015\012
\015\012If the brushes turn freely and the stem is in tact, you likely have a drive problem. In this case put a flat blade screwdriver in the drive hole up inside the machine. If it will not turn the transmission is seized up. This can be purchased at any hoover service center. Use their dealer locator to find the nearest one. To replace this item, remove the hood by pulling the 6 screws underneath the machine. Tilt the hood from the back to the front pivoting towards the nose of the machine. (take off the clear intake duct and recovery tank first) With the hood off you will see the drive mechanisim in the front of the machine, there will be 4 screws holding it in, 2 on top 2 on the bottom, remove those screws and gently lift this part off the machine. There will be a waterline attached to this as well, remove this by simply pulling it off. Replace the item with the good trans, and go back through your disassembly steps.

My Hoover Windtunnel Ultra U6425-900 began shutting off after a few minutes of vacuuming. The time interval became shorter and shorter. If I leave it sit a while, it will start again.

My Rainbow SE vacuum was working fine until I ran over the edge of a rug and it went in to the nozzle. I immediately switched the vacuum off and proceeded to move the rug. When I tried to turn the Rainbow back on the brush was no longer spinning. I've tried the reset button and checking the nozzle for any debris, there are none. The brush just won't spin.
