depending on your exact model this is supposed to happen even when it is up right since the vac motor does two things besides just sucking up dirt but in order to prove that i would need some photos (photobucket links or any other imaging online service is welcome to be used to see the exact model vac it is) now if it has like a two stage mode switch in this model it could be that the two stage switch is a lil bad but i have seen where people have done mini mods to save cash and sort of make their own sorta two stage switch with two switches and a bypass to just run the main motor for sucking up dirt

I have a similar Hoover upright and the brush roller continues to revolve even with the handle locked and the hose detached for direct pickup. Seems rather odd to wear out the carpet that way.

If the dirt is not making it to the dust compartment it may have a clog somewhere.

Using too much current. check to make sure that the motor is spinning at the correct speed. If there is grease caked on bearings it might be spinning slow, overheating, using too much juice and shutting down.
If motor speed is up to par and condition persists you may have some burnt/shorted windings responsible for the issue - the motor has to be replaced.

Make sure you canister is empty. The interior air filter is clean. Check if the hose is free of any debris.

The belt may be broken or worn If your cleaner is not picking up fluff and hair from the carpet or has become heavy to push it is possible that the belt has snapped. This belt makes the sweeping brushes spin round underneath the cleaner and brush dirt into the path of the air suction. The brushes also give that 'groomed' look to your carpet by gently brushing the carpet fibre. If you pick up something sharp or debris gets jammed in the brushes then the belt may snap. Also over time your belt will stretch, so it's a good idea to change your belt once per year to ensure the cleaner picks up dirt effectively.
