Re: hoover savvy motor problem
Take the brush roller out and see if the ends turn freely.if not then something is caught up inside the ends where the bearings are.the ends either pull off or hold one and unscrew the other end.thake the bottom plate off then there are 2 screws about midway up one on each side take those out,then remove the hoover emblem off the top front of the base and there is a screw there.check the belt and look for foriegn objects inside.if the brush roller don't turn freely then you might need a ew rollerr
The problem is the lower roller assembly circuit board fried. It happened with mine as well. I tried to order a new circuit board from Hoover, but they get it third party and don't want the liability. This is very frustrating. I'm waiting for them to call me back.

Unplug from Power FIRST!
If you can find the backside ot the OFF/ON switch you can see if it is worn out or broken. Do you have a voltage tester? If so carefully expose the leads into the switch, then plug in power, and test if both sides are HOT (110volts) when switch is turned on. If so, then it may be the motor is bad. If only one side is hot then the switch is likely bad.
Take to a VAC Store to get a replacement.
the reset button is in the handle, under the cover for the switch. remove the two screws and pop apart. you need to pull up the little post under the lever switch, and push it back down. hope this works for ya.
The hoover savvys have a reset button on the top of the hood, its to keep from destroying the belt. Simply press that button and the brush should start to turn.
If this does not solve the problem it is more than likely the belt (rubber band thingy :) ) in this case pull the bottom plate off again, but this time lift the brush out and slide it to the side and out from the belt. Then look inside the machine and get the belt off of the motor drive gear. Once the belt is out turn it inside out and make sure the teeth to the belt are all there. ( if they are not there will be burn marks.) If it is missing teeth simply replace that belt and you're back in business.
If it is not the reset and it is not the belt, some of those machines had bad switches in the handle. You will find that there is a circut board in the top handle which sends power to the vaccum motor but not the brushroller motor making it seem as if everything is running just fine. You will not be able to buy just the circut board, they come as an assembly and include the whole handle. Unfortunately there is no good way for someone unexperienced to tell wether there is power to the brushroller motor or not. In this case a Hoover service center would be able to assist you though you may end up paying a small labor fee.
The switch contacts are burned out and the switch must be replaced. This link sells the whole handle with switch but, check your serial number to be sure to get the right one. If you can use a Philips head screwdriver, you can do this easily. http://buyitnow64.stores.yahoo.net/hovarepaswki2.html
It uses a cogged belt, turn it over, remove the bottom plate, remove the other screws from the bottom, turn vac back over and remove the Hoover emblem, there is a screw there to remove and the top comes off, then you can get to and replace the belt.
There some screws on the bottom to take off, then turn vac upright, under the round Hoover logo sticker is another screw. It is just a sticker, so will peel off. You can work the belt onto the motor pulley, or unscrew the motor, put the belt on the pulley, then reinstall the screws to hold down the motor.
You probably jammed the roller brush and the gears on the motor stripped the teeth out of the drive belt. You have to take the bottom and the top covers off the lower unit to replace the belt. There is a hidden screw that keeps you from taking off the top, thus creates work for authorized Hoover repair shops. You'll find that screw under the round red label in the center of the top of the lower section. Peel it up and there is the screw.
