Check the flexible hose that comes down from the handle. Look for a crack where it plugs into the base unit. (visible once you open the handle up and remove the cleanable catch basket)

The bearing on the inside of the turbine is rusted. You will have to take the hood of the unit and unscrew the black piece that has to rub hoses going to it. Then take apart the black turbine. Inside you will find 2 white gears and a small 1/2inch bearing. Use wd40 to uncease the bearing. After this put the take pliers and make sure the metal post will turn. Spray wd40 on everything you see including Hoover for making such ****. After this put put everything back together. Now the best thing to do is get some automotive bearing grease and put a large amount on bearing and and other metal parts. Put everthing back together. Clean any hair off the brushes and you are ready. Now the bad news if your gears are worn you will have to replace the turbine. Go to an internet website and the part number will be 91001019. I know all this because I spent 6 years working for Hoover and they found it cheaper to send our jobs overseas.

If you don't have the user's manual for the machine, here it is:
Check your system for any obstructions that could possibly causing the problem. Also, remove the brushes and see if there's a problem between the brushes and the motor.

To fix mine: I removed the brush assembly, showing that when the machine was powered on, the square of the drive gear was not spinning. I used a flat heat screwdriver and inserted it into the square, then gently worked it back and forth until the turbine was free. Then I squirted household oil down into the hole before replacing the brushes. Has been working fine ever since.
