My Hoover Steam Vac Ve brushes stop working - Hoover F7431-900 SteamVac Vacuum

Hi There,

\015\012You'll need to try and diagnosis what is causing the brushes to stop spinning first. A lot of the times this can just be caused by debris stuck in the brushes. I have written a in-depth repair solution on how to diagnosis the brush problem here:
