Is this a Hoover? If so the turbine which drives the brush block is bad. If a Bissell, could be a belt or on some the brush motor went bad. Really need to know what you have to help you more.

The brush won't spin on my hoover shampooer


This machine has an airdriven turbine that drives the brushes. The turbine needs to be replace because it is spinning on a steel bushing which gets rusty from all the water going through it.

Bissell carpet shampooer wont dispense water


Bad Pump. You pump is where the belt attaches to spin the brushes and also puts water on the floor. Take it to you local Best Buy to be serviced or a local appliance shop which may service it.

Are there hand tools you can use with Kirby shampooer?


I love my Kirby and shampooer, but I am wondering if there are any ways to clean stains in small/tight spaces (in corners, between furniture, etc)... my old carpet shampooer had a "hand tool" attachment with spinning brushes, but I don't see anything similar for Kirby... I imagine I could put a tiny bit of solution down and use the zip brush, but I'm wondering if anyone has a better idea...?

I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure.
I believe that Kirby does make a spinning brush and If I remember it is a round brush that spins and probably will not get into square corners – suggest using a scrub brush with the Kirby Shampoo for corners and steps for areas that you cannot get into – use an old spray bottle to wet down the area that you are cleaning and use the scrub brush and if you do find the Kirby spinning brush that will do the large areas.

make sure the brushes on the shampooer head are spinning and that you have the shampooer head lowered all the way down to its lowest setting.

Make sure that the brushes on the shampooer tray are spinning, that the belt is resting on the driveshaft. The suction alone will pull up some of the moisture but the brushes should be spinning to gently scrub the carpet and deposit any excess moisture into the tray.

try this shampooing guide

and make sure the brushes on the shampooer head are spinning and that the shampooer head (same height adjustment on the kirby when vacuuming) is set to the lowest setting.

make sure the brushes on the shampooer head are spinning and that you have the shampooer head lowered all the way down to its lowest setting. Also...shampoo at a slower pace than you would move when vacuuming...when both putting down the suds on heavily soiled areas and scooping them up. The more oils in the carpet, the less suds you'll see when the shampooer is working properly. one more thing that may be mentioned in the guide is the little round sud screen that attaches to one end of the shampooer hose...make sure that little mesh screen is there and seated properly. It is what produces the suds from the shampoo solution.
