Having problems with your Hoover V1 SteamVac SpinScrub Vacuum ?

Hoover SteamVac brushes aren't turning ...

\015 I'm trying to follow these instructions for removing the cover on my Hoover Steamvac: http://www.fixya.com/support/r4530769-diagnosis_fix_hoover_steamvacs_whenHowever, I'm having trouble getting the brush speed knob pried off, and I don't want to break it.Any suggestions?\015

Answers :

Sometimes this speed knob can be really stuck on there. Even if you were to break off the part that the knob sits onto, this part is actually part of the turbine assembly, and the new turbine assembly would have that prong that the button sits on.

\015\012As long as you have the screwdriver underneath of the knob, I wouldn't worry to much about putting too much pressure on it.
