Most likely the brush motor is bad and not turning, part #2036757, would sell for around $23. To get to it, start taking out screws on the top cover, that motor is under the that top access cover.

The brushes will only work if the handle is released and the ProHeat vacuum is running . There is a micro switch inside the lower handle that switches on the DC carpet brush motor. The DC power for the motor comes from a Bridge Rectifier on the PC Board. email@example.com

The direct answer to your question is: you don't. These machines are OK while they're working, but they are not easy to repair, and professional repair is likely to be uneconomical because of the labour involved. As to the cause: of course I don't know without seeing the machine, but I do know that the brush motor is located in a position where it quite easily gets wet and eventually fails (possibly causing damage to the machine's electronic circuit board as well). My best advice: before you buy your 4th Bissell, read what you yourself have written...! And consider saving money by hiring a professional machine occasionally.
I value your feedback. Please remember to rate this response. Thanks, and good luck!

If the Brushes don't rotate, & you have two brushes; 1). Turn unit on side. ( Make sure unit is up-pluged) 2). Rotate the front brush roller, if the second roller moves at same time, 3). Locate a small ribbed belt that goes from the further back roller, to a small ribbed pully. (Gates belt #177-3m5) ( on side under a clear cover) The belt may not be broken, but may have carpet fuzz / lint covering the belt ribs, causing the belt to slip. If that belt is OK and you find that the small pully doesn't turn the belt/rollers, the problem is with a small internal direct drive motor, that drives the brush rollers. At this point return the unit, as Bissell has a design defect & is using cheap parts.
