Re: smoke coming from motor
You can download the user manual from HERE Since the service manual is not available on the net you will have to contact the Hoover people for it.Here is the contact no.
Here is 1 tip which i can give you: From the bottom, remove the screws separating the top and the bottom.
Then at the bottom, remove the round water seal, take out those screws,
( careful with the water seal, reglue it with contact cement when you
put it back on). At the top of the motor, take out the screws around the
motor and it should pull out.

Sounds like a motor err. Could be repaired by a professional but it never be as good as a new one. Also they you might not find anyone to repair it because the replacement motor might cost more than a new vacuum /considering it's age the motor will be hard to find and that makes it more expensive to repair./
The sounds like powerhead motor either burned up, or the belt broke and got tangled in the turning motor shaft. Pull the bottom off the power head and look for a curled up rubber band. If you find one, it's the belt.
If it's the motor, you won't hear it running when you turn the powerhead on.
The motor winding burned out. Perhaps the motor was very hot when the vac was turned off after the last use and the insulation of the motor windings broke down when the air stopped moving thought the unit. Perhaps also the polarity of the receptacle it was plugged into is reversed or the plug on the vacuum is not polarized. Those things in combination could cause this but this is kind of a long shot guess. In any case the blower motor is likely burned out and will need to be replaced and checked out.
you either have something worn out or the motor inside is going bad. Sounds like the motor in the power head is going bad. Disconnect the the wand from the power head and flip over the head take the plate off. then take the plastic cover off uou should get to the motor then. look at all the parts. I would think you need to replace the brush roll, belt and motor. But this is just a guess
I don't know in Nev. call Hoover's 800 number and they will tell you, the number is on the metal tag. But if it is the motor smoking, a motor will run you $85 to $95, plus labor, $40 to $50. But if this an electrical smell, then suspect the motor. But if it is a rbber smell, then maybe you have a belt that is slipping badly, replace the belt.
Sounds like the motor has gone bad. But you need to go to sears.com, click on the part link, put in your complete model number, usually starts with 116.************. Then a parts list will come up and if what you need is there, you can order it thru Sears. Sometimes underneath the rear top cover, is a schematic
