SOURCE: spin-scrub brushes do not spin
hello. there is a little window by the brush control. if you open it up, you can see that there is maybe some lint covering it. scrape that off, and try again. make sure your lever is set to brushes and realease the handle release. if this doesn't work, then you probably have a problem with your gear box. this can only be serviced at a repair shop. I hope this helps. Let me know! Thanks, Renevacdoc

This unit uses a turbine assy to turn the brushes. The brushes could have something jamming them. Remove the brush unit, it is held on 2 spring hooks 1 on each side. The brush unit is driven thru a 1/4" square post, only one brush is driven and it drives the next then it drives the next etc. If something is jammed in these gears it will stop the entire brush assy. The turbine assy could be bad, but I would check the brush assy first.

Since the Steam Vac does not have any belts... the logical issue is Switch setting (Hi, Low, Off) on the base cover. The only other is dirt collection on the air intake for the brushes (unit uses air passing over plastic fan blades to spin the brushes). To clear the dirt problem, remove the clear plastic cover located just in front of the brush Switch. You can now use your finger nail (or an old tooth brush) to clean the filter screen located just below the Switch. Don't tear it, just gently remove the accumulated dust/hair.
Brushes should spin once you reassemble and power it up!!

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.
