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.

Usually indicates a clog somewhere

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.

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.

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.
