My Hoover Linx is not
I think you have 2 problems:
1. The LiNX gets clogged somethings in the head unit and the clog is difficult to see. Remove the head (via the push button). and clean out the clog. I do this with a lenngth of coat hanger wire that I bent a small hock on to the end.
2. If the roller stops turning it can be caused by one of the power wires to the moter getting severed in the swivel connection in the head unit. This has happened to us twice. I took the unit apart (a pain) and was able to fix by soldering and taping wires. However, Hoovers design is not great in getting power to the motor and this may recur. I love these vacuums and I hope they engineer a more robust wie feeding solution.

My hoover dual tank carpet cleaner wont turn on. Can i do something myself?
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.
