You'll have to go into the turbine assembly and check the bearings. Mine stopped spinning and this solved that problem. I simply began working the seized bearing until it rolled again, packed it in grease and reassembled.

When you put the lid on the recovery tank, you have to be sure that the front of the lid is properly engaged into the two tabs on the top of the tank. With the lid installed, if you can lift the front of the lid off the tank with two fingers, then the lid is not on correctly. Also, make sure the square duct that goes into the front of the tank is in place. You have to remove this duct to install the hose for doing furniture but must replace it to go back to the floor function. By the way, the "blowing air" you refer to is normal. This is exhaust air from the motor and it is used to propel the solution onto the carpet.

The Brushes not spinning is most likely is caused by seized bearings in the turbine, requiring shop service (easy fix). The suction issue can be caused by the standpipe seal missing or lower recovery tank not on properly, on some models missing front panel. I would need more exact model info to assist further.

For the brushes:
The power wire may have slipped off. take apart the unit at the top (Behind the cleaning fluid container) Inside there is a wire coming up from the motor at the bottom of the unit. This can come unlpugged no longer powering the scrub brushes. Simply slip the wire back on the plug.
To open: remove all visible screws from top half of machine. Remove the rubber mode dial by pulling off, and remove screw behind that. Pull the front off, and the power plugs are located right on the inside of the machine by the mode dial.
for the suction, check the intake hose the comes out from behind the floor assembly. it tends to split over time

If you don't have the user's manual for the machine, here it is:
Check your system for any obstructions that could possibly causing the problem. Also, remove the brushes and see if there's a problem between the brushes and the motor.
