You may have what they call a lint filter that is obstructed. there are 2 of these one is under the dirty water tank lid and the other is the red piece found on the bottom of your machine. the red piece of plastic should pull out and you can then clean it out. make sure you reapply the same way it came out. good luck!!!

Hi there! There are a few reasons why your spot scrubber may not be picking up. Your dirty water tank may not be seated properly or the filter may be dirty Please try these steps.
1. Check the filter located on top of the dirty water tank. If dirty, rinse with water.
2. Check that the pour spout cap on dirty water tank is plugged.
3. Replace the dirty water tank. Make sure the dirty water tank is flush to the cleaner and seated properly.
4. Clean the nozzle of any hair or debris.

remove and clean the filter ( tap and brush filter or use a air compressor to blow out filter ) --- also check the vacume hose near the floor attachment for any dirt and debris that may be clogging the line. this should bring your vacume to full operation.
1. Replace bag if needed.
2. Check hose/s for clogs. You'll need to detach both ends of the hose, check for visible clogs first, then try to roll a marble through the hose. If it doesn't go all the way through, there's obviously a clog that needs to be removed. Blowing it out with a machine that has an exhaust port usually works for me.
3. Check tube in powerhead and intake on vacuum for clogs. Remove if necessary.
4. Clean filter.
5. Leaky hoses will also cause extreme loss of airflow/suction. No fix for this, except to replace the hose.
ok it sounds like the vacuum line that goes to your brush is clogged partially. need to remove soem screws and get to it from the underneath. or try blowing through the line with compressed air or blower side of a vacuum. its usaully the smal flat veins that clogg right before it goes up into the tube that you connect to.
Either it needs a new belt, they stretch and break, then won't turn the brush roll. The dirt inlet by the brush roll is clogged, the hose may have a clog in it, filters are bad. If the hose comes off on one end, is there suction there, is so then the clog is farther down. If no suction, then the clog is in the hose or filter.
