Question about Hoover U6437-900 / U6439-900 Windtunnel Bagged Upright Vacuum
I have a hoover wind tunnel (u6433-900) where the brush is not rotating. It broke on Thanksgiving as I was rushing around cleaning before company arrived. It had a horrible smell, resulting in the need to open windows and doors.
This morning I cut all of the hair, strings, and whatnot off of the brush with a scissors to see if that was the issue. I also took the bottom cover off and checked the belts. The thicker one on the side and towards the back was still spinning, but the smaller one towards the front is not.
The suction works just fine when I use the tools, but the brush does not engage at all when I try to vacuum. It actually makes a strange noise.
I looke up vacuum repair shops by me, and there are only 2. They charge $20 just for an estimate, so I thought I'd see if anyone else could help. I'm handy, so I know I could fix it if I just knew what was wrong.
On a side note, the self propell has not worked for quite some time. Is this difficult to repair? I'm fine without it, but thought I'd ask as well.
Thanks so much!
The problem i see the most is that people have the setting on the front of the vacuum
for "floors" not carpet, switch it over and it will start as soon as the handle is released , if not try belts and finally motor burnt out.

I'd try changing both the belts. If the flat belt is stretched it will affect both functions.
