The SpinScrub brushes makes the spinning action using a turbine mechanism. This turbine has cheap parts and it starts rusting as soon as it comes in touch with water, which could happen right after the first wash. This issue has been widely reported in Hoover's other models as well, and yet Hoover's clueless Engineering team is unable to change the design or the parts and keeps on using non-stainless steel and cheap parts which seize to operate, right after they come in contact with water and rust.
Check the following link on Amazon Q&A where a user has asked a question after his or her machine stopped working:
When I experienced this issue as I was getting ready to use the machine, I did an online search and numerous videos on how to fix the Hoover carpet cleaner's turbine mechanism. It's just been a year and have used the cleaner twice. I am very handy with fixing things. So, I thought, I will give it a try before calling Hoover for warranty claim. In my case though, it won't fix as the shaft between two bearings is completely rusted and jammed. The bearings are rusted too, tried using WD-40 and tried to move the part but it won't budge.
I have now sent a message to Hoover Support, let's see how quickly they can have it fixed. I will come back and update the review accordingly.
----- Update as of May 4th -----
My machine was still under warranty. I had contacted the Hoover Support via email but they refused to send the affected part and instead referred to me to their authorized service center. I tried to reason with them that it's waste of time for me drive about 11 mi to take the machine for a problem which I have already diagnosed. They refused and reiterated to take it to authorized service center. I had eventually taken the machine last week to service center. The service center folks were very receptive and told me that this is a common problem but good for their business. Warranty or not, they get paid either way.
Service Center had called me last Saturday that they had replaced the part under warranty. I just need to now pick it up.
----- Update as of May 6th -----
I picked up the machine today and it has a new turbine that rotates the SpinScrub brushes. This repair was done under warranty but I am concerned that warranty would soon expire. So, I asked the service tech about what options I have when (not if) it happens again. He told me that the part is about $30 and their service fee for changing the part is $20. So, I will be looking at $50 expense every time this part needs replacement as the company WILL NOT ship the part directly to consumer even if they could handle the repairs themselves.
An additional fact to keep in mind before you pick this cleaner.
1) This thing leaks well after it's turned off.. Pain to clean and why should I have to clean after the cleaning machine?
2) It does not have a heater, add the hottest water you can and hurry!!
3) The bristles are the thing I hate the most, they are vacuum powered not motor driven.. You can literally hear them slow/bog down if you're going too fast (must go extremely slow) or have too thick carpet and my vacuum cleaner (shark navigator professional) does a much better job at what the cleaner it's supposed to do.
4) My neighbors have a $60 Bissell than does an enormously better job in about half the time. Glad I didn't pay full price but I'd rather pay a lot up front and get what I paid for.
Conclusion: But something else, anything else, this is a genuine piece of crap. Oh yeah I did have it completely disassembled and put bank together thinking there must be something wrong with the drive mechanism.. No belts/bands/drivechains, that's where I became aware this thing is vacuum powered. Horrible "cleaner". Don't say I didn't warn you if you buy this thing. Cheers.
Top international reviews
I did my research and compared product reviews/specifications in a similar price range and I'm very happy that I chose to purchase this cleaner!
There are so many pros to this cleaner, so I'll just list a few, then I'll address some of the problems in the negative reviews.
First off all, the engineering of this is very well thought out! I previously had a $150 carpet cleaner, which I actually had to strap lifting weights to, in order to get it to press hard enough down on my carpet, to suck up the water (no joke). This machine however, is designed so that the dirty water collection tank always sits on top of the vacuum suction head... think about that. What that means is, as you recover more dirty water, the head presses down harder on the carpet (due to the increasing water weight), recovering almost all of the water that you've sprayed out.... but wait, there's more! The heat exhaust of this machine, is vented down at the carpet, this helps to evaporate what little water remains, ingenious! This, combined with the separate water and detergent tanks, removable spinning brush heads and filters, plus the detachable stair/upholstery nozzles and many handles, really make this a no brainer purchase.
Now, to address some of the nay sayers:
To the person/people who complained about the brush heads hardly/not spinning when the machine was tilted on its back: I noticed the same thing, and it had me worried that it was broken, however I soon realized that this is most likely an intended safety feature. When tilted, the plastic cog wheel disconnects, to stop the brush heads spinning, but if you tilt it back upright, it puts pressure on the heads, engaging the shaft to cause them to spin (I verified this by reaching my hand slightly underneath, although I strongly discourage anyone from doing this)
As for the handle breaking: that person/people must have been very forceful, as I wasn't exactly "friendly" using mine, and encountered no problems at all, everything was rigid.
For the people complaining about water leakage: this happened to me as well, but it was my own fault. It happened by placing the clean water tank on incorrectly, easily fixed. The manual also warns about not tilting the machine on its back with water in the tanks.
For the people complaining about the tank sizes: this tank is actually very large! It holds twice the water of my old, similarly priced machine.
You have to consider that:
Any greater tank size would mean, thicker plastics to handle the stresses, increasing cost.
More pressure on the brush heads meeting the carpet, which means the shaft/cog wheel might need to be made of metal to handle that stress, increasing cost.
Finally, water is heavy and if the tanks were larger, less able people would find it very heavy to lift or handle.
The bottom line is most of the negative reviews were due (like many things) to human error or not following instructions correctly.
In conclusion, I honestly don't believe that you can beat the value this machine provides. I highly recommend this product! I would have happily paid well above what I did for this machine based upon its design and performance.
Easy to assemble, easy to use, easy to clean and refill! Not too heavy and has excellent suction!!
Note: You will need to buy more cleaning solution as the bottle that came with it didn't go far! Canadian Tire or Home Depot have large jugs of carpet cleaners for reasonable prices. Delivery was also one day earlier which was great!!
If you're thinking of purchasing a carpet cleaner this is the one!! Go for it! You won't be sorry!
It's extremely quick to set up and begin to use so it's not really going to be a hassle to use this even for a quick cleanup. The mechanical furniture and stair brush is also very nice and works well, getting even the toughest stains out. Powerful suction also means your carpets won't take long to dry as most of the dirt and water are removed after a couple of passes. Heavily soiled areas may take a bit longer to dry due to the extra water and cleaner needed but I think it's worth the extra dry time to be able to get stains out with such a low priced but great working cleaner.
I used the machine first on a Berber( closed loop) carpet and it worked quite well. It had not been cleaned in 3 years except spot cleaned. We have 2 cats all the time and occasionally a dog for a few days at a time. The water sucked up indicated from the carpet it was quite dirty as it was a dark grey. The next room was an open pile carpet about 1/2 " deep. I found that neither the water with detergent or rinse water was not being sucked up very well at all, leaving the carpet very wet. I checked everything over and could not find any problem. The vacuum part had plenty of suction. I tried pushing down on the front of the machine so it was tighter to the carpet and now it worked great, sucking up plenty of the water detergent mix. It was not practical to push the machine from the back with the handle down and try and push the front down close to the floor at the same time. I had both a 5 lb and 8 lb rubber covered barbells so I taped one of them to the handle where you grab hold of the waste water tank , which puts more pressure down at the front of the machine .
After that it worked great and I went over all the carpet I had just done and this time sucked nearly all the water out of it. Either weight worked well . The smaller one nicely sat in the handle area of the tank and only needed a bit of tape to hold it there. I will probably continue to do this the next time I use it.
I like the way things dismantle for cleaning and I also like that the brushes are not cylinders like the Bissel but disks as they seem to do a better job.
Also, I have had it for less than a year and already the rubbber gasket seal has broken (customer service shipped a new one out) and the water release nozzle on the extended hose is permanently stuck open (again customer service provided a free replacement). I’m worried about future maintenance when the warranty runs out, since I use the unit fairly infrequently (once a month for <1 year) and already two parts have broken.
We have a smaller carper spot treatment cleaner for her barfs and other spills.
Here is my advice regarding this hoover machine
1) spot clean the floor to the best of your ability before hand. Because this machine is for large areas and won’t remove small set in stains.
2) spray a high traffic spot treatment on the high traffic areas. In our case, all areas are high traffic areas so I sprayed the whole floor.
3) clean your floor during the day time. I found it very difficult to clean the floor when there wasn’t enough natural light coming in because I couldn’t see light stains. However, if you have adequate lighting otherwise, this shouldn’t be an issue.
4) start early because it takes a really long time to do a thorough job.
5) maneuver the machine slowly over the carpet because the agitators work to clean the carpet as you pass over it.
6) if the floor is really dirty you may want to do 2 washes and rinses. It takes a long time for the water to run clean after rinsing if your floor is very dirty so you may have to do a couple washes and a couple rinses. But don’t over saturate the carper because that could cause mould problems.
7) IMPORTANT: Make sure as you are cleaning you are constantly monitoring the water/solution tank. The machine runs out of water and solution a lot faster than you think. And if it runs out and you notice it after it’s run out, you will have a hard time knowing when it ran out so you will have to go over the previous sections again.
8) make sure you don’t let the dirty water tank get too full because it won’t suck up anymore water. I empty it when it’s about 75% full.
9) the hose attachment is extremely tricky and difficult to use and the attachment parts don’t work very well. Perhaps I didn’t really give it enough time because I have a smaller cleaner I used instead of struggling.
10) it takes about 24h to dry fully so you can’t move furniture back on until after it’s dried. I did our apartment in sections throughout the week for this reason.
Overall, I’m very happy with this product. It’s pricey but if your using it every few months it’s much more cost effective than paying someone to do it or renting a machine. It’s shocking how dirty our floors actually were. I didn’t even notice how bad it was until I cleaned them!
Sucks the pee right out, shampoo leaves an awesome smell that even my picky smell husband loves ! My 3 year old is also terrified of it and runs away at whenever I use it.
Needless to say, I rejoice when the dog pees on the carpet now instead of throwing shoes at him!
Our first unit would intermittently stop spraying cleaner, our second leaked but our third seems juuuust right.
I really do love this cleaner, but the small flaws are incredibly irritating.
