Having problems with your Hoover V1 SteamVac SpinScrub Vacuum ?

Loud Grinding Noise

\015 Bought a steam vac from a garage sale. I'm a first time user, and it worked great, but ehn all of a sudden it started making a grinding noise, so I turned it off, and it will not power back on. My husband checked for something possibly stuck in it, or a busted belt, but can't seem to find the problem. He also noticed that the fuse did not burn out. Is there something in it that can be replaced or is the motor burned out?\015

Answers :

Take out the brush block and see if it will power on, if not then probably your motor has gone bad.

When I vacuum w/ the brush control in the on position it make a really loud noise, almost like a grinding sound. I have looked at it and nothing seems to be wrong, but I notice that the pin that engages the belt seems to vibrate a bit, possibly creating the noise. It started when I accidentally got part of a plastic grocery bag caught in the brush. Could it have stretched a belt? Nothing is caught any other place and it only makes the noise when the brush in in the on position.

Yes, the belt could have been stretched and is now vibrating and hitting other parts and creating a noise if much of the bag got caught under the belt.
