If the slector it-self is broken It's very simple to fix. If your a do it yourselfer just go or contact any vacuum repair shop and ask for that part. Or call one and sometimes they will ship it to you. If you can't find any help contact firstname.lastname@example.org and we can help you.
Your self propel wire could be broken. Lean the vacuum back like you were using it. If you stand in front of the vacuum look down and to your left. When you move the selp propel button you should see a wire move. If not then it's broken.
Can you verify the model number? However, based on your posted description, it sounds like the flat belt is either broken or fell off. to access the belts turn it over and remove the bottom plate (4 screws). the Flat belt will connect to the motor shaft in the back and the large black pulley.
http://geeksquad.fixya.com/ThreadView.aspx?prdid=40485&thid=619779 Brush won't turn and self propel doesn't work (by 2 users) Posted by brucelk on May 24, 2008 I have replaced both the v-belt and the larger belt with Hoover brand belts and the brushes still don't turn properly and the self-propel function doesn't work. It seems that when I lower the handle all the way down toward the floor it works fine, but no one can vacuum this way. Is there an adjustment to belts to tighten them up? Otherwise I have to get it in to the only repair shop in town which is an hour's drive.X This Problem has been added to the Share Your Expertise Page under "My Work Queue". OK 1 Other User Has the Same ProblemComment by chartsell, posted on May 29, 2008I have replaced both the belts as well. I have tightened the screws as someone else as suggested. The brush still will not turn unless you lower the handle almost to the ground.Hello, I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure.Hoover U6437-900 / U6439-900 Windtunnel Vacuum. It is not so much the belts, the 2 belts are only part of the solution. The average belt change is every 4 to 6 months as a rule and to change them @ the same time. The Hoover Self-Propelled works on when the handle is lower to a comfortable position then the self-propelled drive may just need and adjustment. There is a self-propelled rod that controls the self-propelled feature and it either needs adjustment or replacement or the part that hold it may be broken but either one can be fixed.

But I can't figure out how to remove the top cover that will give me access to repair. Any thoughts? X This Problem has been added to the Share Your Expertise Page under "My Work Queue".

Hoover U6616-900 Windtunnel Bagless Upright I would contact either the local vac dealer or to contact the Hoover Factory or Manufacturer to get the owner’s manual to get an exploded view of the self propelled cable or have the email or fax the information that you need, but they should be able to send you an owner’s manual so you can try to fix it yourself. You don’t want to exceed the repairs cost to the price of what you paid for it. The decision should be yours, example: if the repairs costs are $200.00 and you paid $279.99 then @ that point you would have to decide if the repair costs are worth or do you want to pay the lower cost of repair and continue on. Just a suggestion...

If the belt is getting hot, then it is slipping instead of turning the brush roll. Check thge brush roll, make sure the ends are turning freely. Is the motor running ok? If it is then either the brush roll is bad, need a new belt, or something is catching the belt, not letting it move.
