The flat belt should be changed if it has been longer than 9-12 months. Next I would remove the upper handle to inspect the top section of the control cable, sometimes it fray's and has a sponge feel (no positive control) to self propel. To set this adjustment, it is best to do withthe hood off of the lower section. I would also look at the cable jacket in the foot to make sure it is under the metal clamp. It must be under the clamp to work properly. To get it under the clamp loosen one hold down screw at the top and one in the back of the vacuum, remove clamp screws and put jacket into position and then secure all screws. Now set the adjustment, Install upper handle and set self propel to off. loosen cable from arm in foot with torx screw. manually move arm until the clutch is off both drive pads. This is a visual adjustment. then secure and reassemble vacuum.

Hi there SmartAlec from Nelsonvacuums.com.au here. Actually the brush belt needs to be tight as well for the self propell function to work. However once you change that if it is still not working it could be the drive mechanism itself. You can test this by laying the vacuum flat on its belly so you can see the brushes. Turn it on and push the handle down (as if you were actually vacuuming). This should get your drive wheels going they are two wheels about 3 inches away from your brushes. If they are not turning then you need a new drive mechanism. If you are in australia i can get you one through our website above.
Hope this helps. Happy Vacuuming :)

You probably need the switch replaced. It's fairly simple to do youself, and it is a known problem with these vacuums.
You can order the switch from hoover for about $10

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.

It sounds like it is overheating because of a blocked flow of air that keeps the motor cool. Check for a blockage from the area of the
roller brush through the hose to where it goes into the bag.
