The belt may seem fine but could still be causing your problem. If it is over 6 months old replace the belt.

By your description I believe you have a Hoover Windtunnel self propelled upright vacuum. The belt tensioner will tighten up the belt and make the brushroll spin when you recline the handle into the vacuuming position if the hard/carpet lever is in the proper position.

There is a part called the "nozzle adjust cam" (part number 38563007) that maintains the height of the front wheel support.

Check that power is reaching the unit and that the on/off switch is fine. If all ok, then check to make sure that the brushes of motor are making contact with the commutator.

The bearings on the ends of the brushes can get clogged with things e.g. hair and this can cause the roller to seize.

I am not sure of the motor wattage but it is unlikely to exceed 2kw and is probably much less so that sort of load being plugged into a power outlet capable of safely delivering a much larger current is unlikely to cause heating of the plug. That the plug did become hot indicates a poor contact between the supply cables and power outlet, between the power outlet and plug or what seems the most likely, between the plug and the power cord.

Given that the plug has been getting hot and that most breakdowns of portable appliances including vacs are internal breaks of the power cord usually at or somewhere near the plug, so that would be a good place to start testing...
