Hoover savvys have two very common problems that cause this. The first and most obvious is the belt that you checked already. Many times the belt is tight but those particular belts have teeth and should you lose any teeth on the brushroller OR the belt it can cause this.
The other problem this is a symptom of is a bad switch in the handle. It sounds odd but the switch assy in these machines controls 2 motors, one that causes vacuum another that causes the belt to turn! Often time that switch assembly is bad and the smaller motor that drives the belt does not run when the handle is in a certain position. This causes your brush to stop but since the louder bigger vaccum motor is still operating you never hear the small one quit. I would run this again and listen for a difference in sound. In this case you will buy a replacement circut board that is installed in the handle (i usually replace the entire handle assy, the small extra cost is worth the dependability as nobody can seem to determine for sure what makes them go bad)
You can get the parts from any hoover service center, use their dealer locator to find the nearest one. Be sure to take the old parts in and compare when buying new, hoover makes running changes to their product so 2 machines with the same model number can be different.
Aside from a stray bad or pinched wire you're more than surely dealing with one of those two items. I'd focus on the first paragraph as that is by far most common and least expensive.
take the top off the vacuum and you will see 2 straps one on each side of the motor,take the straps off and remove the base from the upright.the motor housing will be at the bottom of the upright.you will see some screws on the front of the housing and on the back.take those out and the motor housing will come apart.you will be at the fan and the motor itself.theres probably something caught in the fan.
