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.

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.
Best of Luck!!

SOURCE: hoover savvy will not move
the reset button is in the handle, under the cover for the switch. remove the two screws and pop apart. you need to pull up the little post under the lever switch, and push it back down. hope this works for ya.
