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.

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.

One cause is that the recovery tank lid isn't on correctly and not sealing. If there is a foam filter on the inside of the lid, make sure it has a 1/4 in. gap from the top of the lid. There is another filter, from the bottom, it has a red frame, pull it out far enough to clean it. May have a bad turbine, or the shaft on the top of the brush block broke off. You have a 1 years warranty on this, I would take it in to a warranty repair shop and get it repaired.

Remove the brush assembly and insert a flat screwdriver into the square hole and be sure it turns. If it is seized up, the turbine assembly will require replacement. If it turns, be sure the brush control is set to the brush position and the filter is clean. The filter may be on top behind a clear plastic cap, or underneath in red plastic holder depending on the model. The brush will also not turn unless the lower tank is in place, and the handle released and tilted back.
