Start by replacing the belt and cleaning the bottom

Usually indicates a clog somewhere

Hoover Vacuums | Answered on Feb 25, 2018

The filter is probably clogged and restricting the airflow causing it to overheat. Even if you thoroughly clean filters frequently they should be replaced, about once per year depending on the model.

I found the manual for the Hoover F5826-900 at Sears Part Direct on the product support page: https://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/user-manuals/f5826900-hoover-parts-manual . The direct link to this copy of the manual is https://c.searspartsdirect.com/mmh/pd_download/lis_pdf/OWNM/L0406307.pdf .

I hope this helps.

This is usually caused by one or more of the following.

Worn out brushroll.
Belt not spinning brushroll fast enough on carpet.
Scratched or damaged bottom plate.
Dirt or gunk on bottom of vacuum.
Height not set properly for type of carpet.

disconnect from the power outlet and call an technician to find the short or earth leakage problem

Hoover Washing... | Answered on Feb 21, 2018

A vacuum has a powerful motor with internal brushes that make contact with the rotor. If the brushes wear down or break apart, the motor will not function. Brushes can be damaged if DIRT gets into the motor. Replacing the brushes may solve the idle motor problem. If you have Volt Meter, you can test the switch in the vacuum handle for continuity. If the switch is broken, this too will be a cause for the vacuum not to function. Replace the switch.

A lot of times the bearing wear... they are placed around the drum and maybe sticking.. If it squealed or made funny noises check those first. It would be like putting on a break and trying to drive a car.

That could be two things. Belts scream when they slip and are worn out. An bearings scream when they are dry or worn.

Your machine seems a bit obscure, as Google doesn't seem to know that model?

Usually when the vacuum fails to start, a short has occurred at the Switch or Motor. Motors have brushes that in some cases wear down and fail after a long time in use. In some cases, dirt gets into a motor and acts as a resistor whereby electrical contacts fail to communicate with essential parts. A belt may seize up around the motor shaft or brush and bun out the motor.
