A Wind turbine operates on a simple principle .The energy in the wind turns 2 or 3 propellor like blades around a rotor .The rotor is connected to the main shaft which spins a generator to create electricity. Wind turbines are mounted on a tower to capture the most wind energy.

My Hoover wind tunnel V vac doesn't have belts so why aren't the brushes not turning


  • It is driven my air. There is a turbine that drives the brushes. You need to take it out clean it and lube it with a light grease. Vaseline will work.

How long is a piece of string? That is the same sort of question.
Can your question be a bit more definitive.

Why does it not fit?


Hi Clint, it's Jack at Dyson.

DC24 is not compatible with the original Mini turbine head as this tool is engineered to work with the performance characteristics of our full size upright and canister vacuums.

However, we do make a Mini turbine head which is compatible with DC24 - for help ordering this, I would encourage you to contact us directly by calling 0800 298 0298 (UK), 1-866-693-9766 (US), or 1-877-397-6622 (CA). Once we've taken the serial number of your machine we'll be able to confirm the correct Mini turbine head for your vacuum.

We'll look forward to hearing from you.

Best wishes,

Jack

Spin brushes not turning


Most all Hoover SteamVacs rely on a turbine to create suction and spin the brushes. The brush block (removable, just clips in) will have one of the 5 or 6 brushes with a stem inserted up and in the turbine. Hoover did a poor job sealing the hole that stem goes through and water and cleaner seep up to the lower bearing on the turbine and the bearing siezes. The turbine has a gear assembly inside! It is not easy to replace the turbine, especially the first time because what needs to be removed can be a head scratcher. However goes easier the second time. The turbine can be taken apart once out and I have used light grease to free up the bearing and gears but it's only a temporary fix. Different models have different part # turbines so pay attention when ordering the part. Need a work bench environment to do this. On occasion the brush block itself can get stuck because the brushes gear mesh together and the stemed brush drives them all. They can and do bind up with junk and do wear down and bind. If you can't turn all 5 or 6 brushes by spinning with your fingers on the stem, the block itself could need replacing. The block and brushes do come apart for cleaning but be careful because they are plastic clips on both halves of cover/retainer and can break.

I have a wind tunnel vacuun and the roller will not turn


There is only one motor which turns the turbine and brush. Therefore, if the suction from the turbine works check the belt by removing the bottom plate of the vacuum and look for the belt attached to the brush roller or if only a piece of the broken belt is inside the unit. If the belt is attached and intact look for a mechanical switch to turn on and off the brush and make sure it is not on bare floor or off. Look on one of the edges of the brush assembly for the clutch which is attached to the mechanical brush switch with a rod. The clutch will close and open when you move the mechanical switch. If you cannot turn the brush unit by hand you may need to remove some objects such as string or hair from wrapped around the clutch or brush.

My turbine head is not working - spinning?? but when i pull it apart, it starts spinning.


this has happened to me and i have three non spinning turbines at home. There are two ways to sort it, either call dyson if your machine is still in warranty, explain the problem and they should send you a new one. The second solution is in two parts, if the turbine is driven by the suction of the machine, take apart the turbine removing the brush bars and run water through it. leave it to dry and it should be fine. If the turbine is driven by power and not the machine's own suction, i am really not sure. definitely do not run water through it. Before you call dyson though, make sure the turbine is not clogged and that the hoses on the machine and the telescopic wand are not clogged by blockages. i know it sounds obvious but just to be sure! hope this helps

Brushes won't spin on a Hoover Steamvac SpinScrub Model F5918-900


well the hand tool works off the suction of the machine and has nothing to do with the turbine that controls the brushes. if you can get the part i can walk you through taking it apart. when you write back, let me know what the model num of your machine, so i can give you the right directions. hope this helps

Brushes


This machine has no belts. There is an air driven turbine that propels the brushes. If you look under the little glass window at the left front corner of the machine, there is an intake screen just above the indicator dial. That screen is there to keep debris from entering the turbine and will have to be kept clean. If it is clogged, then the turbine will not function.It is also possible that moisture has entered the turbine and siezed the bearings. If that is the case, the turbine would have to be replaced. Also, because this turbine works off the suction of the motor, if the recovery tank lid is not on correctly, then the suction loss will effect the brushes. Check the lid and make sure it is on right.
