SOURCE: spin brushes spin freely on
If this is a Hoover Steam vac, the turbine which drives the brushes is bad. If not a Hoover, then what is it, they are different, need brand and model number.

Sounds like you could have an elevator broken (part #2000010). You will have to take the top off to replace them or to check to see if one of them is broke. There is one on each side so when the handle is in the upright, they push againsy the brush roll to lift it up. As for not spinning, chack the cogged belt as well as the cogged pulley on the pump, if it is bad, you will have to replace the pump.
