I've had my Hoover S3755 for about 2 years and loved it, at least until the last couple of months when the "belt slipping off" problem started. I changed the belt and the vacuum would work for a little while then the belt would come off again. I put on a new belt again and within minutes the belt had slipped off. I took it to my local vacuum repair about 4:00 in the afternoon. By 4:45 I got a call from the repairman that he'd fixed my vacuum! What did he do? He put a different belt on it. He put a Rainbow belt on my Hoover that's thicker and doesn't have as much "give" as the Hoover belt. It's also a little bit wider than the Hoover belt. Now when the brush slows or stops at a carpet edge the belt doesn't slide off.

Over time your belt stretches between 10% & 25% and once it stretches like this it will only run ok when there is no resistance. As soon as you put the belt under load (ie carpet) there is not enough tension to keep the brush turning. What you need to do is fit a new belt and all will be good again.
If you need parts I would recommend nelson vacuums or vacuumspot if you are in Australia.
If this has been a helpful answer for you please take a moment to give me a comment or a testimonial.
Happy Vacuuming :)

this is the part for the belt, 38528036. you can get it at sears website or service center. also make sure you clean the caps on the side of the brush. take them out and remove hair and dirt. put a little or mineral oil and install them back.
good luck to you.
