Question about Hoover Vacuums
This is a platinum MaxExtract model
It is probably just trash that can not be fixed but for the same price as a brand new one due to the amount of parts that will need replaced

Hello, Trish. It sounds like the belt needs to be replaced. You can purchase a belt for you vacuum at any Sears or probably even a local department store and are very easy to replace. Just go to you local Sears and ask an employee to direct you to the vacuum accessories department and you should find the replacement belt. Be sure to write down the model and what type of vacuum it is (i.e. Type U, Type Y, etc.). Hope this was helpful. Please take a few seconds to rate how helpful this suggestion was. Thanks and good luck!

Sounds like you have two separate problems here. If the brush bar does not rotate, probably the belt is broken. This is easily replaced, but you need to be precise about which model you've got so you get the right belt.
Loss of suction is due either to a blockage or, quite often, to a split in the short length of clear plastic hose that leads back from the brush bar enclosure. Repair is possible but replacement is better.
If you need more help, post here again.
