Hi, what you need to do is check for suction at the inlet hose that detaches from the roller brush. If you have real good suction there and you plug it back in to the brush, it should pick up if the roller is turning. Turn it over to see if the belt is on the motor and the brush will roll when it is turned on, but be very careful not to get you're fingers near it! If you have no suction from the hoses, you have a blockage in the hoses. You can take the hose loose and try and run a long broom handle, it may be long enough to clear what ever is caught inside. Its just a matter of cleaning all hoses and making sure the belt is not broken and the bag is not full if it has a bag. Let me know what you find.
Sincerely,
Shastalaker7

The pickup setting may have to be reset, i.e., something between high pile and bare floor.

Won't pickup water on rug


I may have already given my best advice but, check the hose line to the extraction tank and make sure there are no cracks in it. This will allow it to **** in air, and therefore reduce the vacuum pressure at the head of the machine, causing it to malfunction.

6583 makes loud noise when its turned on


My first guess is there is something caught in the pickup wheel.
1. remove the belt cover to access the pickup wheel
2. remove strings and hair around the ends
3. if you can, remove the belt and see if the noise goes away when you turn it on, this will help to isolate the problem
How old is the unit?
Does it pick up dirt good?
Describe the sound, clicking, rubbing, wheezing, bangin' or clangin'

Will not pickup water


Tilt the handle all the way down to the floor - and look at the big pickup hose.
Typically this is a weak spot in the hose, and it plits - just from normal use.

DOES NOT VACUUM NOW


Several possible problems:
1) Did you clean the blue lower pickup container (dirty water) before putting it away?
Take out the pickup container and open it up, check the filter (under the little blue piece on top) and also open up the container itself and clean under the flapper on the "screen".
2) Look inside the housing and check the vac hose that goes from the front of the unit up to the rubber grommet where it goes into the lower pickup container. Is it clogged? If yes, take off the front pickup (the part the runs along the floor in front of the rotating brushes) and run a very narrow lint pickup brush (like for cleaning dryer vents) and clean out the hose. It works great.
3) Check the front pickup for clogs and clean
4) If you are trying to pick up water, make sure the setting is set to wet. If you are trying to use it as a vacuum, set it to dry.

Hope this helps.

Wont pickup wet


Either some dirt and grime is causing the lever mech. to jam or inside the noozle asm. it came out of place or broke, either way you will have to dis-asemble it to find out. You maybe able to really push on it and it may unjam if that is the problem.
