Most common fault with vacuum cleaners is an internal break in the power cord. This is followed by switch problems and then the internal thermal fuse or breaker.

The answer is to partially dismantle and check the circuit with a multimeter.

Power cords usually fail close to either end so taking a chance and shortening it by a foot or two and fitting a new plug could pay off.

What is the model number of the carpet cleaner?

Home Depot has the manual for the Hoover Power Path Max FH51002 on the product page: https://www.homedepot.com/p/Hoover-Power-Path-Max-Upright-Carpet-Cleaner-FH51002/300984357 . The direct link to the manual is https://images.homedepot-static.com/catalog/pdfimages/e8/e81b1250-323a-4f1d-a23a-e4c319568399.pdf . In the manual, the model is called the Dual Power Path Max.

Hoover lists 3 Dual Power Path Max and 8 Power Path models on their manuals page: https://www.hoover.com/manual-video-search/ . The Power Path Max carpet cleaners do not show up with this search engine without adding Dual at the front of the search query.

I hope this helps.

If you can by pass the switch see if the machine runs that way. If it works by bypassing the switch then the switch needs replacing.

Check the hose where it attaches inside the machine. They often get cracks which leak when using the tool.

Im not a specialist in this but to my knowledge, Will the unit spin if you manually turn the timer dial to spin? If so, remove power, remove the clock motor from the timer, and inspect the clock and mating timer gearing for debris or damaged gear teeth. At the worst, replace the timer. You may be able to scrape or file the damaged teeth so that the timer will progress.

Have someone look under the machine and see if it has a drive belt from the motor to the pump.
If it does, the belt could be worn out and slipping, causing the drum to not spin fast enough.
God bless your efforts.

There is a hubcap assembly on the outside of each rear wheel that must be removed. Under the hubcap you will need to remove the e clip from the shaft to allow the wheel to slide off.
