These motors have a fuse incorporated in the field winding and it sounds like that blew. These motors sometimes overheat at the front bearing and the bearing will melt into the plastic housing. This will cause the fuse to blow. It sounds like that's your problem. You can remove the motor by removing the three screws on the bottom of the powerhead and then check the front bearing for any bubbling or blistering in the plastic housing. The shaft of the motor should turn easily.

Sounds like you have a clog, which is a fairly common problem with these.
Check the air inlet immediately aft of the brushroll for clogs, then make sure the main wand and hose are also clear. If you have the machine on, check at the end of the hose for suction. This is a fairly common problem for all uprights with tools on board. Their airflow is very low, so they tend to clog up easily and then overheat the motor.

OK - sounds like your machine has a blockage somewhere. Follow manufacturer's instructions for clearing blockages and all should be well. If you no longer have the manual, you can download it from the Hoover website.

I have a Windtunnel S3765 with the same problem - and it has very little use so I'm confident it isn't wear. I find that the wheels do not raise the agitator brush sufficiently high to reduce the drag caused by excessive contact with the carpet. If I raise the front a bit the brush spins as it should. It also works if I take the housing apart and use it without ..... but this is tricky.
Unfortunately I haven't figured out a way to hold it up efficiently. I am toying with afixing something to the bottom of the housing to raise the front enough to give the brush a little more room.

Might be that its not exausting enough heat & stutting its self down..
Try cleaning all the filters & the hepa filter..
This will increase air flow & maybe fix the issue..
Hope this helps !!
rate me good ;o)
