SOURCE: Self Propel
Me again with more info. This happened to me and I solved it as described previously. More info here:
There's a microswitch located where the hose attaches to the bottom section of the vacuum. If the hose is not completely inserted, the microswitch will not engage which causes the brushes and the self-propel mechanism to not work.
If you think about it, this is a safety feature. If you're using the hose with hand held attachments, you don't want the vacuum to self-propel itself away and potentially crash into something.
If securely attaching the hose does not solve the problem, it might be the microswitch or related circuit. You should be able to see the microswitch arm and hear it click when you attach the hose.

There may also be a reset button. If the brushes get stuck the unit can shut off power to the brushes to keep a total melt down from occurring. The reset button should return power in these types of vacuums.

Installing belt on Hoover self propelled upright...

Need help installing belt on Hoover self propelled upright vacuum
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. Hoover Ultra U6430-900 Wind Tunnel Bagged Upright. The best way to install the belt on a Hoover to replace one or both of the belts @ the same time for the best cleaning. The average belt change is every 4 to 6 months for best results. There is a tool that looks like a screwdriver that has a right or left angle on the end that serves as a belt puller and to hook the belt(s) onto the brushroll 1st and then take your puller and then pull or stretch the belt onto the motor pulley. So if you need further assistance, please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or in the yellow pages, or contact the factory phone number or website to further assist you with your questions.
