SOURCE: Spin bruches don't touch floor.
It seems to be a common problem with this series of floormate... some home quickfixes (a hassle, i kno) but put downward pressure while using the solution.... Check your warranty that came with it, and how long you purchased the floormate... Alot of vaccuums come with 30-90 warranties, I'd recommend having it checked out. That, or if u bought it recent enough,take it back... like i said, these models are unfortunately known to have this problem... Some people have ones that operate normally, but alot do not. >.<

Hoover steamvacs don't use belts. If the brushes are not turning, pull the brush block out, turn the machine on and see if the square hole where the brush block was, is turning. If not then the turbine is bad. Sometimes you can take the turbine apart and clean it out. most times I have found , replace it.

my husband took it apart today and the impellers were gunked up with black stuff.
he used these pictures that someone else generously posted. ours was slightly different in internal design, but they are helpful regardless.
here is an exploded diagram of the 5903, 04, etc. it will help you see if any parts are missing or broken.
parts list if you need some:
it's working fine now. sucks much better too. what a difference!
guess for the $179 these things avg, they just need annual maintenance. I wouldn't pay someone to do it though.
