Re: need to download the manual please.

This machine adjusts itself automatically. When you pull the handle back, there is an arm with a pin that catches the handle and automatically engages the brush mechanism and shuts off the hose. When the handle is returned to the upright position, it returns to the hose function.
As far as cleaning the machine is concerned, you can only do so much yourself. You can use a plastic tool, shaped like a ruler with an arrowhead at the one end. You insert the arrowhead end into the bottom of the clear plastic duct and then pull debris and hair out of the duct. The brushes remove with the pressing of the four plastic clips and pulling the brush assy away from the machine and then you can wash them and re-install them.

The Hoover site has a manual download available, but I'm not sure if it's working right now. The Hoover company was going bankrupt and was sold to a Chinese company and they have made massive changes to the structure of the company. Everything is a mess right now and we can only hope that with time, things will improve.

Hoover brush and wash instruction manual

Hi there! To prepare for cleaning, put the solution and water in the top tank. While cleaning, all the dirty water gets sucked into the bottom tank. To clean squeeze trigger to release cleaning solution and slowly push carpet cleaner forward, this equals one wet stroke. Continue to squeeze trigger and slowly pull carpet cleaner back toward you (second wet stroke). Release trigger and slowly push carpet cleaner forward over area just sprayed with solution (dry stroke). Then slowly pull carpet cleaner back toward you without squeezing trigger (dry stroke). To avoid saturating the carpet don't do more than 4 wet strokes over one area. Always end with dry strokes. Here is a link to view the instruction manual if needed.

Hope this was helpful!
