But for future reference, does anyone have any idea why my brushes stopped spinning? I don't think i will ever use it on carpet other than Berber again because it works fine when I just leave it on my hardwoods and linoleum....

When I run the intro program, the vacuum NOR brushes turn on.
I pushed the reset, but nothing seemed to happen. Which two buttons is it?
Finally, where is the "cold solder joint on the paddle board connector of the Cleaning Head Assembly". This is the second time the brushes have stopped turning -- last time the company sent me a new cleaning head assembly. But it took quite awhile, and I would prefer to repair it myself if at all possible!

Everything works except the main brushes.
Did a reset and the brushes worked for about 30 sec.
That was the only time they worked even after 10 resets.
Did also clean inside as described above (including the gearbox) without any change.
Any idees what to do ?
