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.

No, there is a turbine that turns the brushes. You can take the top cover off to get to it, open it up and clean it out and then try it again. If that doesn't work, then replace it, or just replace it to begin with.

The cover is only secured by 3 screws. One on the top, and two other on the underside. The two on the underside are located on the black plastic and are deeply recessed. After removing these 3 screws, on the top there are 2 snap in post. Simply squeeze these posts inward, towards the center and the cover should lift off.

The bearing on the inside of the turbine is rusted. You will have to take the hood of the unit and unscrew the black piece that has to rub hoses going to it. Then take apart the black turbine. Inside you will find 2 white gears and a small 1/2inch bearing. Use wd40 to uncease the bearing. After this put the take pliers and make sure the metal post will turn. Spray wd40 on everything you see including Hoover for making such ****. After this put put everything back together. Now the best thing to do is get some automotive bearing grease and put a large amount on bearing and and other metal parts. Put everthing back together. Clean any hair off the brushes and you are ready. Now the bad news if your gears are worn you will have to replace the turbine. Go to an internet website and the part number will be 91001019. I know all this because I spent 6 years working for Hoover and they found it cheaper to send our jobs overseas.
