This happens when the filter on the inside of the lid for the dirty water tank is pushed all of the way up. You need to leave a 1/4 in. gap from the top to the top of the filter.

I have the Hoover spin brush upright. I have tried everything from cleaning out the path the dirt gets sucked through, to making sure the lids are all on tight. The brushes spin, there is just hardly any suction. All the water is all over the carpet and the darn cleaner won't **** it up. This steam cleaner is only like 6 months old. Very disappointed.

"I did some research online and the recurrent theme was a bad turbine assembly. Fortunately I was able to fix this myself which took about 2 hours (some reading) and little effort. The problem was with the turbine which is fairly simple and had a bearing that had rusted and froze up. Removing the cover proved to be more difficult than fixing the stuck bearing. This was mostly due to figuring out the correct screws to remove and finally discovering that the back of the cover (over the wheels) is not secured by fasteners but by pegs that "pop" out.
Once I had the brush assembly and Cover removed the turbine came out with the removal of some obvious screws and gently pulling the hoses from the assembly. After carefully opening the assembly housing I discovered the bearing problem and with a little lubrication and some new grease had it working in short order. Putting everything back together was simple as well."
this worked for me. although once i got in i just had to mess around with the gears and loosen them up. getting in was the hard part soo here you go peoples.
take off tanks
unscrew 6 screws fom underneath machine. look carefully
just underneath where the dirty tank goes right by the part that sucks everything up is a screw. unscrew it
pop off the switch for your spin scrub mode. it pops right back on.
make sure your locks for the tank are turned in
then the back just pops off. you might have to give it a good tug. there are no screws although it maight look like there is.
then pull off the grey part.
once inside it is pretty easy.
but if you have any questionbs email at email@example.com
i took off so many more screws than i needed to to get this figured out so dont do that.

The brushes are driven with air pressure from vacuum motor. The switch merely opens a small door to allow air flow. usually there is a screen that is plugged that stops air flow which stops the brushes from turning. I too only used the appliance once and it broke. The round disc (turbine) had become jammed with no major obstruction. Cleaned anyway and put back together and it started to work again. I am so done with Hoover--no more of their products for me. To fix. the whole brush motor had to be removed and disassembled and cleaned. Not impressed at all!

Make sure you have released the handle, as if you wanted to push the machine forward. If the handle is locked upright, the brushes do not spin.
If they still don't spin, you may have a broken belt. Look carefully at the base, on each side. As I face the front of mine, on the right side of the machine, a small belt goes around one brush and a small cog wheel. On the left side, a larger belt goes around both brushes. If either belt is broken, the brushes will not spin. This can happen if you let gunk build up inside the clear plastic side pieces or around or above the brushes. It's very important to constantly be cleaning your Bissell. The belts can be ordered online and replaced. See your owner's manual.
