SOURCE: brush roll wont turn
Might be that the the idler wheel is stuck and not engaging the V belt. If you look down just past the V belt you will see a black roller, it needs to be against the belt. It is either stuck or the asm. is broken.

SOURCE: I have 2 Hoover Wind
The Hoover WindTunnel self propelled is a machine that we see in our retail stores (Vacuums Unlimited) constantly. The benefit of having a supposed "self-propelled" machine wears of quickly after the numerous time you will need to take this machine in for repair.
It's unfortunate you've had to spend so much money already on repairing this machine. I know you've said you've already replace the belts and filters, but if you want you can check out a video we made on repairing the Hoover Windtunnel.
If you are looking for a reliable upright, at GoVacuum we'd recommend the Sebo X4 upright (http://www.govacuum.com/seauxseupvac.html). The machine is incredibly reliable and easy to maintain. Thus far, we haven't had one warranty repairs come through our doors. The machine itself has a lifelong warranty on the belt because the machine automatically shuts off the motor if an obstruction is detected, preventing any undue stress on the motor or belt.

SOURCE: burning smell
I had burning smell and some visible smoke which I tracked down to the handle area. The mains socket at the bottom of the handle had burned out. When I pulled the plug out I noticed that the prongs were blackened and scorched. I will replace the socket.

Hi the dyson is a bit strange with this the dyson engineers use a hook to put under the belt and pull it out to allow the brush to be removed I used a metal coat hanger to make the hook after seeing the dyson engineer when ours was under warranty if you make the hook with the wire doubled up it works fine for me hope this is of help Fred
