Brushes won't spin on hoover steam vac ls
\015 The brushes on the base of the vac don't spin anymore but the brushes on the attachment work just fine. everything else works just fine. i have cleaned the front screen where the spin indicator is and there is nothing obstructing the brushes. thanks.\015
If they still won't spin, then take the brushes out. Again, with the unit on the floor, you simply grab the unit firmly and pull towards you. It's much easier to remove than the screen. I took the brush unit outside and blasted it with the house. You'll have to pull out whatever fur balls are clogging it but eventually you'll see that the brushes spin freely with the water squirting on them. Plug the brush unit back in and - in my case - they started spinning.
Hoover Air Turbine for Carpet Cleaner\0127452-900
If the turbine seizes (as indicated by\012the brushes not spinning) and not caused by other issues described on\012other posts), it can be fixed rather than having to replace. You can\012find instructions elsewhere on how to remove. Once the turbine is\012removed, unscrew the two parts. Remove the two cogs and remove the\012collar on the top of the spindle (the spindle groves in it). The\012spindle is rusted to the collar at the bottom. Use some penetrating\012oil, pull lose with pliers, clean up, put back together Drop a bit\012of 3N1 oil to the collar to help prevent rusting in the future. Also\012oil the top collar. The spindle then spins freely and works fine\012(at least mine did).
