Question about Hoover Vacuums
There are a couple of possibilities: the first and most simple fix would be to replace the brush-block, which simply releases from the bottom by pushing the retaining tabs free. If you pull this out and attempt to spin the brushes by spinning the green squarish "stick" coming out of the top of the block, you should be able to determine whether this is the cause. If the green stick is absent, or if the brushes are completely seized, a new block will run you anywhere from $50-$75 depending on which type it needs. If the brush block is functioning fine and isn't broken, you have probably seized the turbine which turns the brush block. To determine if this is the case, lay the machine on its side with the brush block removed, and turn it on (making sure you are clear of all moving parts, which in this case is only one..) and look at the white plastic circular piece with the square hole in it. If this is spinning, your turbine assembly is functioning properly. If not, it is most likely blown. If this is the case it is a fairly extensive and expensive repair, but if your machine is truly less than a year old either problem should be covered under warranty by an authorized hoover repair center.
