Try going to hoover.com and either email them or there is a number that you can call, this is hoover direct, so someone there should be able to help you. Have your model and serial numbers and purchase date handy in case they ask. It also has a 2 year warranty on it. So if you bought it in the fall of 2006, then you have until the fall of 2008. I would take it to an warranty servicer and get it repaired before the warranty runs out.

Check the ank valve to make sure when you push it in that water is coming out. The reservior asm, (the tank bottom sits on this)is bad or the rod in the handle isn't pushing the reservior asm when you squeeze the trigger.

SOURCE: Belt replacement
No belt- it is motor driven. what happens to these if the rollers get stuck(by- say, a Lego® or something) is the roller itself has an insert which will break, requiring roller replacement.
simple fix, but costs a little more than a belt. remove two screws holding the roller cover, accessible by flipping the vac over. then figure out which roller is broken, and remove the 2 outer screws on that side. pull the outer bearing cup assembly straight out to remove the rollers.
I have found the rollers as cheap as $3.50 ea/ for generic replacements. Also I reckon any Vac shop would have them on hand.

Hoover savvys have two very common problems that cause this. The first and most obvious is the belt that you checked already. Many times the belt is tight but those particular belts have teeth and should you lose any teeth on the brushroller OR the belt it can cause this.
The other problem this is a symptom of is a bad switch in the handle. It sounds odd but the switch assy in these machines controls 2 motors, one that causes vacuum another that causes the belt to turn! Often time that switch assembly is bad and the smaller motor that drives the belt does not run when the handle is in a certain position. This causes your brush to stop but since the louder bigger vaccum motor is still operating you never hear the small one quit. I would run this again and listen for a difference in sound. In this case you will buy a replacement circut board that is installed in the handle (i usually replace the entire handle assy, the small extra cost is worth the dependability as nobody can seem to determine for sure what makes them go bad)
You can get the parts from any hoover service center, use their dealer locator to find the nearest one. Be sure to take the old parts in and compare when buying new, hoover makes running changes to their product so 2 machines with the same model number can be different.
Aside from a stray bad or pinched wire you're more than surely dealing with one of those two items. I'd focus on the first paragraph as that is by far most common and least expensive.
Best of Luck!!
