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

Hoover steamvac turbine and brush control switch

\015 The brushes on my f7425-900 stopped working months ago and i found out it maybe the turbine causing the problem. So, i got the turbine off the machine and found that the shaft and bearing was froze solid with rust. I soaked it in oil and and got it loose and cleaned it up and put it all back together working properly. After putting the machine back together and turning it on i pushed the brush control button to the on position to start the brushes but nothing happened. Is there any suggestions of where to go from here?\015

Try checking your drive belt might have come of or just loose
Hi,

There are two (2) kinds of brushes involve in your vac. The first would be the circular ones (5) that do the actually cleaning. the 2nd would be the electrical brushes more commonly called carbon brush. These provide the electrical contact to the commutator segments of the motor. It initially, when the motor was stuck, then it would be very likely that these carbon brushes have burned themselves (if not the motor windings themselves) up. Pls check/replace the carbon brushes. In some instances, they may have been inadvertently wired/positioned the other way around.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Hoover steamvac Spinscrub F7222-900 brushes do not engage. Brushes will spin when unit is laid down and the brushes are pushed upward, forcing the male brush linkage into the female receptacle , but when the unit is stood up it disengages. Turning the switch on and off does not make a difference.

Hoover Mach 6 U5198-900 vacuum roller brush won't turn. I had opened the bottom to clean hair off the roller. the belts are not broken. When I closed it and turned it on, now the roller brush won't turn. I can push and turn it by hand, but not easily. Then I noticed the brush on/off switch is turned off, but when I step on it, it won't turn on. I was thinking I let something get out of place when I opened the bottom, but can't see what.

We have a Hoover upright vacuum cleaner, model Core 7. There is a switch that turns on and off the brush drive. This operates via a cam with a bearing putting pressure on the final drive belt to engage the brush head. My brush head is not turning and with the lever set to engage the drive there is still considerable slack in the final drive belt. There appears to be only a bearing deflecting the belt, should there be a pully or other device mounted on this bearing? There is so much slack a


Yes, there should have been a white plastic sprocket on top of the bearing - in its channel the belt would sit. Unfortunately no parts are available for this unit that can be bought retail - only available by order to dealer repair shops.\012\012\012 ... Hoover Vacuums

My Hoover Windtunnel Ultra U6425-900 began shutting off after a few minutes of vacuuming. The time interval became shorter and shorter. If I leave it sit a while, it will start again.

Hoover on off switch won't turn off. I have to unplug the vacuum to stop it. I have dismantled the handle and now I can't get the inditation in the handle to fit over the little silver knob. I saw there was an on/off switch under the handle that is controlled by a piece of the handle. #1 question for the manufacturer is why don't they put the switch on the outside instead of having gimicks that turn it on and off... arghhhhhhhh


Don't know what model you have, but sounds like you will need to replace the switch. As far as your question, you will have to contact the manufacture for an answer. We only provide solutions to your problem and a model number would have helped. ... Vacuums
