Ok, thank you for the help! I did have the top off, but did not know
the taking the motor loose trick, thank you for that! Now I have a
couple of more questions, and thank you so much for all of the help! I
got a belt from sears, & the sales guy sold me an off brand belt.
It looks just like the belt that broke, although do you have to force
the motor back down into place? I think it may be the wrong belt? I
have looked on the Hoover website & they do not even have parts
listed for this vacuum? Is this the timing belt, or do you by chance
know the model number? Thanks :)

Knowing the model would help.
Broken or disconnected wire in hose, connections, power nozzle.
Hose needs replaced. Check all connections for discoloration and cracked supports. Have power nozzle checked at a vacuum shop. Depending on the model, take it to an authorized Aerus Electrolux store for this.
Bad power nozzle motor Needs replaced.
Bad switch. Take the whole machine in for thorough check and repair..
The nut is reverse threaded . If you hold the fan with one hand use a ratchet to loosen the nut, you will have good enough leverage to break it, but if you don't then here's a little trick....Take your vise grip pliers and clamp it to the belt end shft of the motor. Now with your worktable (or floor) brace the vise gripped motor shaft . with the ratchet, turn the nut to the right. Like you're tightening it. this should be sufficient enough torque to bust that nut. I hope I was able to help you , let me know. Thanks, Rene (the Vacuum Doctor)
You have to take off the top of the power nozzel that has the light lense. There are two pressure locks,one on each side. Use a screw driver to release. You will see the screws.Take the two screws out and on some models, there are two pressure locks on the back of the nozzel. Again use the screw driver to release. The top should come right off.Hope this helps.
there should be screws on the top of the base take them out then the cover should come off.ther there are 2 screws on both sides of the motor that hold it to the base.take them out then you are at the motor.look at the motor casing and you will see screws 2 on top and 2 on the bottom that will take the casing off the motor.use a small paint brush to clean the motoe and casing
Just had the same problem. Switches and motor checked ok, then found the circuit board on the left hand side of cleaner. The fuse (on the board) looked ok, but when removed and checked for continuity I found it had blown. The problem I have now found is that the fuse cannot be ordered only the complete board. Hope it gets the brush roller going again.
i just took my old majestic apart to fix the motor
on mine, when you open the top of the machine where the exit hook up is
you take out those three screws
the top case comes off and you can get to those three screws and alot more of the motor as well
ok for one, once you remove the screw hopefully you havent damaged the armature, which is the most important part,,,,1. get vice grips 2. try to get something to lock the sides down, ......question first, do you know if it works, if it does why are you taking the screw off, also if it doesnt its unfortunately probaly not worth fixing, if you need parts off of it just crush the side open..... if you come across another unit that has a screw loose, use silicon on the bolt and screw it will help keep it from rusting...
take the bottom cover off the machine so you can see the brush that the belt drives, you have to take the brush out next. slip the belt on the brush then set the brush back in you should see where the belt hooks up to the motor, now heres the trick they are all different here some belts are put on where they are straight like a car it just loops both sides. put it on this way first if the belt is very loose when installed this way, it means you might have to twist it half a turn for it to be on right, you will be able to tell though. because if its loose it wont turn the brush. i think you can handle it.
