Hoover Steam Vac - Brushes not turned, no suction power

\015 I have a Hoover SteamVac that I purchased in December 2007. It has been working fantastically, but yesterday, the brushes stopped rotation and there is no suction power - I turned the unit over and all I can hear is blowing air.\015

Answers :

The Brushes not spinning is most likely is caused by seized bearings in the turbine, requiring shop service (easy fix). The suction issue can be caused by the standpipe seal missing or lower recovery tank not on properly, on some models missing front panel. I would need more exact model info to assist further.

Beater brushes not turning on the wife's Hoover Steam Vac model F5905-900. Found one prior ''solution'' stating that it sounded like the belt was bad.

Suction Problem I just borrowed the Hoover Steam Vac Deluxe w/ 5 brush agitator from my neighbor and it worked ok for the first few minutes, although the suction would stop and go.
