The early models of this machine had a pretty ugly defect in the clean water tank. They had all kinds of problems with them and now have a completely different tank to replace the old style. It sounds like you have a defective tank. When the tank sits on the machine, there is a center pin in the tank support that pushes on the tank valve(s) and released the solution into the machine. One of the problems was that the hot water would cause the plastic of the tank to become too plyable and the preassure of the center pin would bend the plastic up and then the valves would not open. You may have to replace your tank. Contact the Hoover company and tell them that you are aware of the many problems they had with this machine and they may make compromises on a replacement tank. Good Luck.

Assure the ring gasket is in place under the hood. A round rubber gasket must be in place on the round tube under the hood where the recovery tank sits to connect the vacuum from the motor to the round tube on the bottom of the tank.
In addition, make sure the recovery tank lid is properly aligned to the tank to seal.
Lastly, make sure the square duct is latched in place in front of the recovery tank, that links the nozzle plate to the tank lid.

SOURCE: the brushes on my hoover
The most common reason for this is that the air driven turbine that turns the brush has seized up. To test it, remove the brush and insert a flat screwdriver into the square hole that the pin on the brush normally fits into. If you can't turn the fitting with the hole in it, the turbine assembly will need to be replaced. ( part # 91001019 ) - msrp $19.99. Be sure the square pin has not broken off from the brush assembly, as this is another possibility.
