You are correct, the motor is shot. if you like the machine replace the motor. i would get an est. on the machine from your local vac shop and the go price them. in some cases its better just to get another machine.

Motor issues


A faint burnt plastic smell is actually normal for these when brand new, but that normally disappears after a week or so. As for sparks, a thin trail of blue sparks trailing along the commutator (the uppermost part of the motor that can be seen rotating) is normal. However, if there are blue, orange sparks flying out of it its toast. The motor is dying in that machine.

Hoover carpet cleaning started to smell like it's burning and black chunks of rubber came out


Nan, there's obviously a belt that's shot and needs to be replaced. If it started to smell, then it was probably bound up at some point in it's travel path, that stops it from running and the motor shaft burns it's way through the belt, making the smell.

My hoover dual v steamvac make loud noise and sparks


Be careful. This could be a shorted wire inside where the motor is. If there is sparks , something is exposed and touching. The motor also may be ready to give out. Unless your daring enough to open the whole thing up I would bring it to a shop or replace it.

Hoover Steam Vac Dual V brushes won't turn


The brushes are driven with air pressure from vacuum motor. The switch merely opens a small door to allow air flow. usually there is a screen that is plugged that stops air flow which stops the brushes from turning. I too only used the appliance once and it broke. The round disc (turbine) had become jammed with no major obstruction. Cleaned anyway and put back together and it started to work again. I am so done with Hoover--no more of their products for me. To fix. the whole brush motor had to be removed and disassembled and cleaned. Not impressed at all!

Hoover Windtunnel


Sounds like you have a bad brush roll(48414115), take it out and see the the ends turn freely or not, if not, then replace it. Also check the the slots that the brush roll sits in to make sure they haven't melted. I am assuming that the motor is running, if not, then it may have froze up.
