Having problems with your Hoover SteamVac F5914-900 SpinScrub Upright Vacuum ?

Brushes are not rotating - Hoover SteamVac F5914-900 SpinScrub Upright Vacuum


Answers :

The Hoover SteamVac's are notorious for this exact problem. There are several things that can be causing this problem.

First, what you'll need to do is take the brush block out of the machine. To do this there are 4 clips on the brush block. You will need to turn the machine upside down, and pull down on the brush block to where it won't pull out any farther. There are 4 clips, 2 on front, and 2 in the rear. (See picture, I have circled one of the clips in red). Simply press these clips at the same time, and pull the brush block out of the machine. I'd say that 60% of the time that I see this problem, the main issue is that the brushes just need to be cleaned. If you have pets in the home, a lot of the time the pet hair will just be lodged inside the brushes, will prevent them from spinning. Use a pressurized water hose *(one with a spray nozzle is ideal) and spray each brush with water to dislodge any pet hair. You should be able to get these brushes spinning when you spray them. Spray each brush until the brushes are spinning pretty fast. Re-insert the brushes into the machine, and test to see if the cleaning has fixed your problem. If the cleaning still fails to fix the problem, take the brushes back out of the machine.

One you have the brushes out of the machine, the first thing you should look at the brush stem that goes into the turbine inside the machine. This is the green pole pictured in middle of the brush block. Examine this pole to determine if the top of it has broken off. It should exactly how the picture shows it. Make sure that the plastic pole has not broken.

If the pole is broken, you will simply need to replace the brush block assembly. The model F5914-900 uses Hoover 5 Brush SpinScrub Brush Block Part # 48437022.

If the pole is not damaged, the next thing to try is to turn the machine on while you have the brushes out. Step on the handle release pedal so the SteamVac handle is lowered, and not in the upright position, as there is an internal switch that turns the brushes off when the machine is in the upright position. Now look inside the machine where the pole goes in. There is a green, square shaped female receptacle. This is actually the internal turbine that spins the brush block. Make sure that the switch for the brushes on the top of the machine is turned to "Rotating Brush Speed Hi". Turn the machine on.

If you saw the female receptacle where the brush pole is inserted was spinning, then your turbine is fine. If this part is not spinning, then you will need to replace your turbine.

I hope this helps you with your problem. Please feel free request a clarification request form here on Fixya if you have any questions, I'm always happy to answer follow up questions you might have.
