SOURCE: brushes will not spin
There is a motor for the brushes, it may be bad. If no suction, there is a gasket on top of the back cover that may be missing leaving a gap and losing suction.

There is a very small, white water filter (approx. 3/8" in diameter/ 1/8" thick) inside the "seat" where the solution tank connects to the machine itself. Could very well be your problem if you are in a city environment, or any other situation where hard water is present. This is a very easy fix; discovered it when my wife experienced the exact same problem.
1) Make sure other causes have been eliminated, such as clogged nozzles, etc. (Refer to owners manual.)
2) Ensure that the solution tank is indeed seating properly with the machine, (a few small bubbles rise from the connection once made.)
3) Remove solution tank. With needle nose pliers or a very small screwdriver, GENTLY remove the white filter from the black, movable "seat" connection on the machine.
4) Run the machine on manual (without the filter) to determine if this is indeed your problem. (Don't run for an extended period of time this way if this actually is your problem. The filter is there for a reason!)
5) Simply wash the filter gently between thumb and fore-finger. Vinegar may be used, but simple tap water works as well. If clogged, you should feel grainy, hard water type scale/ lyme build-up when cleaning the filter.
6) Recycle the original filter or replace if necessary. (It would be very easy to make a new one without going through the hassle of dealing with OEM parts or Bissell. Just go to your local hardware store and they should be able to help you out with no problem.)
Voila! Spotbot works again.
Hope this helps!

I had the same problem everything worked except the brushes wouldn't move. I took the top off and tested the leads to the motor and it wasn't getting any power. So I took the power board out and traced it to a large ceramic 5 watt 1.5 ohm resistor right in the middle of the board. I got a replacement resistor from a local electronic store and soldered it in. So for less than a dollar its working perfectly again. Also I put some electical tape over the speaker to quiet it down. It seems funny to have a very very loud beep to tell you when a very loud machine is done.
