Question about Hoover SteamVac Carpet/Upholstery Deep Cleaner Vacuum
SOURCE: Hoover Windtunnel
Sounds like you have a bad brush roll(48414115), take it out and see the the ends turn freely or not, if not, then replace it. Also check the the slots that the brush roll sits in to make sure they haven't melted. I am assuming that the motor is running, if not, then it may have froze up.

Its your belt burning up. You have to take the bottom of the unit off to check the belt to see if it was rubbing against something or if it is broken.

Usually when my vacuum smells like burning rubber, the belt needs to be changed and that is very easy to do. You just need to remove the the screws that hold in the rotator and put in a new belt. When the belt needs to be changed the vacuum will not pick up anything and this could make it seem like there is no suction. I hope this helps!

What does it smell like? If it smells like burnt anything-it could be that the fan is broken and lodged in the motor. You can see if the fan is good just by looking into it.

Please look to make sure the rubber ring gasket is still in place under the recovery tank. The tube on the bottom of the recovery tank must seal to the rubber ring to get suction.
