Question about Hoover Platinum LiNX Cordless Stick Vacuum
When I place the battery in the charger it flashes real fast and the battery will not charge.
your battery is Shorted. it is time to buy a new vac or a replacement battery.
sorry that is such a short hand answer but that is what the charger is telling you.

your problem is the armature in the motor housing is shorted or grounding out...it is time to retire it.

They are nickel cadminum batteries, and are replaceable, you may have to order from a repair shop, or go thehooverstore.com. Once you have the battery pack out, maybe you can find them like at Radio Shack or other places that sell these type packs,

the problem is not repeat not with the batteries. i bought another sweeper from a local department store. when i got it home i put the new battery in the old sweeper, and it ran for about a minute. then i put the old battery in the new machine and it ran fine. so the problem is not the battery but somewhere betwee the battery pack and the brushes.

SOURCE: My Hoover Linx is not
I think you have 2 problems:
1. The LiNX gets clogged somethings in the head unit and the clog is difficult to see. Remove the head (via the push button). and clean out the clog. I do this with a lenngth of coat hanger wire that I bent a small hock on to the end.
2. If the roller stops turning it can be caused by one of the power wires to the moter getting severed in the swivel connection in the head unit. This has happened to us twice. I took the unit apart (a pain) and was able to fix by soldering and taping wires. However, Hoovers design is not great in getting power to the motor and this may recur. I love these vacuums and I hope they engineer a more robust wie feeding solution.

please go to web page from Hoover and see the videos respectively from your model, etc.
However this can be a problem:There could be a clog in the hose or the bag/tank may be full and need to be replaced or emptied. Also, check the belt to see if it is worn or broken, if it's defective replace it.
