Make sure the brushes turn freely when removed from the machine. There is a screen on most models to trap hair which will restrict airflow to the turbine if it is restricted. It's on the bottom on some models and under the little clear cover on the front of others.

Here was an issue with this model of hair and debris getting caught in the end caps of the brushroll. A nozzle guard repair kit is available to solve the problem.

The brushes are hitting the hard floor surface. Normally it's best to have the brushes turned off when vacuuming hard surface floors but your model probably does not have that option.

It may be soap residue not rinsed from the carpets. You may also have something in the brushes causing the lines.

Check the motor brushes as well as the on/off switch.

I'm not sure about a 3 month old vac, I'd probably go the warranty route. However, for the older vacs thy start getting false positives. The sensor is simply a microphone hooked to a computer chip detecting sounds of dirt entering the bag.
To rig it to start working, you'll need to remove the tool accessory tray and elbow that enters the back of the vac, and attached to the bag. This will reveal the microphone at the elbow, and wire that runs into the bottom area of the vac. When on, a large amount of air comes from the bottom screw and area where the wires enter. My fix was to clean up the microphone contact points a little bit with a screwdriver, and then leave the vac running while putting in dampering in the hole at the bottom, and around the back of the elbow. Cotton balls and electrical tape at the bottom hole, and napkins around the outside of the elbow (wedged between the back of the vac assembly and elbow did the trick). The schematic for the vac is here: http<colon>//www<dot>vacsrus<dot>com/CartGenie/pg_U6485900<dot>asp
Look for micrphone.

The plastic clips in the handle that hold the trigger may be broken. Take the handle apart and inspect this area closely

Look at your posting history. You posted it to the wrong category, more than and then added irrelevant bits of information that are separated by nearly and hour. To get good answers, you have to ask good questions in the correct category. This isn't a chat room, all your posts do not get linked together.

Make one post to the correct category, and make that one post detailed about what you have, make, model and what went wrong with it, and what you have tried to get it working. Then and only then will you get good answers.

Or, just take it to a Hoover Service Centre.
