Sounds like you have a clog, which is a fairly common problem with these.
Check the air inlet immediately aft of the brushroll for clogs, then make sure the main wand and hose are also clear. If you have the machine on, check at the end of the hose for suction. This is a fairly common problem for all uprights with tools on board. Their airflow is very low, so they tend to clog up easily and then overheat the motor.

I have a Windtunnel S3765 with the same problem - and it has very little use so I'm confident it isn't wear. I find that the wheels do not raise the agitator brush sufficiently high to reduce the drag caused by excessive contact with the carpet. If I raise the front a bit the brush spins as it should. It also works if I take the housing apart and use it without ..... but this is tricky.
Unfortunately I haven't figured out a way to hold it up efficiently. I am toying with afixing something to the bottom of the housing to raise the front enough to give the brush a little more room.

There is a hinged bracket for this unit which has a 5" bolt through it. It comes from CanaVac who manufactures under label. If you cannot find this large U shaped bracket on the body or in the bucket, either return to COSTO or call Canavac and explain. A used bracket from an old Canavac will fit, nothing else will. If Costco is sold out you will not likely get one through a Hoover service center since they just don't break and it is a newer body style for Hoover made under private label.. A Canavac dealer might have one around
FYI if you got this unit at $200 off you got good value, if you paid full price and need to wait for a bracket, shop around for a different brand. While the unit and tools are good , the Hoover power head is the Achilles heal on this package. If you use it more than an hour a week , you will wear it out within 3-5 years as it is their light duty head.
If you have the bracket , hang the unit on a double stud if possible or 3/4 plywood braced across two studs. Leave 24-36 inches slack in your low voltage wire at the motor and coil around a pencil or long philips screwdriver, making it phone cord style... your wife and neighbors will think you are a pro......
Post back if you need more info.

The motor has a thermal protection sensor on it. So your motor may be going bad, it is pulling to many amps for some reason, could be a clog somewhere or a bad bearing in the motor.
