Having problems with your Hoover STEAMVAC VACUUM Vacuum ?

Brushes do not move any more how can I access the belt area to replace or inspect


Answers :

The brushes are turning by an air driven turbine. The turbine has a \015\012pivot bushing made of steel inside of it that gets rusty because of the \015\012water that is running through it. The turbine gear will have to be replaced.\015\012 You can access the turbine gear by removing the hood. You can find a genuine hoover replacement part by following the link \015\012below. Just find the model number of your Steamvac.

My Bissell Model 3760-4 is not working properly. The belt has been replaced (and checked 3 times), but the brush bar does not move when the brush motor button is on. The little metal turning piece that turns the belt is turnable with one's finger when the belt is off, but when we put it all back together and turn on the vacuum, the brush bar does not go around and the burning belt smell returns. The portable part of the machine works properly. It's the brush bar. It has been cleared of hair, etc

My machine (Hoover Wind Tunnel - bagless) is only 1 yr. old. The agitator brush doesn't turn all the time. I know it's not supposed to turn when in the upright position. However, it only seems to work when I have the setting on high. When I stop, but have not put the machine in the upright position, it stops again and then slowly starts moving.
