The brushes stopped turning - Hoover F7431-900 SteamVac Vacuum


Answers :

Just repaired mine today same problem.
\015\012Turbine drive shaft which drives two sets of plastic gears and which in turn make the scrub brushes rotate has sealed ball bearings and I guess from an evidently poor design moisture some how entered plastic gear casing and the sealed bearings froze up which evidently aren't sealed all that well. Anyway (turbine drive after easy removal from unit 8 screws on bottom one on top can be disassembled by removing 4 screws around gear casing allowing access to the plastic drive gears and the bearings) You can make a decision from there of whether or not a new replacement turbine is a better way to go.
\015\012The entire turbine unit can be purchased online for a very reasonable price if you look around the Web.

Hoover WindTunnel S3765. The motor spins and the belt turns when I turn the brushes on, and the brushes will spin. The problem is that when I do this on carpet, the brushes stop spinning. As soon as I pull the "head" off the carpet, the brushes spin again. It's almost as if the vacuum suction is too great. I took the head apart and watched the motor turn the metal spindle that the belt rests on, and the belt turns as well.
