Question about Hoover U5262-900 / U5260-900 / U5266-900 / U5268-900 EmPower Bagless Upright Vacuum
Thank you for the help. I have taken the belt off, and although it seems in good condition, I am in the process of obtaining a new one. The vacuum is under warranty but there are no service centers within 250 miles of here. I will rate the solution after obtaining a new belt and trying it. thanks again

This really sounds like a belt problem. Even if it looks OK, it may have stretched. New belts are cheap, and you'll need a new one eventually - if the old one turns out to be fine, you can always keep it as a spare. A second possibility is this: Many cleaners have a control which allows you to switch off the brush/beater bar so you can clean wooden floors without damaging them (for instance, mine has a pedal-operated bar which shunts the belt between two adjacent pulleys on the brush roller, one of which is properly keyed on, and the other of which is a loose fit allowing the roller to idle. If you have something like this on your cleaner, check you have the brushes switched on, and that the mechanism is working properly. A.
