My bissel pro heat cleane's brushes stoped. I checked the belts. They are okay. There is no sign of heat or problems around the motor. Is there a mercury switch some where in the handle so the brushes only turn when the handle is lowered?

Plenty of suction in the tube that goes to the joint just before the 90 degree turn to go from the handle to the brush area.I lowered the handle so that the tube was straight and probed. The tub is clear. I cann't find the manual at home or on line. The Hoover.com site is useless in searching for a manual.

I just bought a used euro pro steam shark model ep903, has all parts but when I turned it on to use it water and steam poured out of the handle grip area. Am I not doing something right?
