Question about Hoover Vacuums
By all means ~ take it back to the store... I searched for your model and "problems" and got almost 400 hits like: "cutting out", "burning smells" and just plain "dead" to name a few...
In fact one site gave this model only 1 1/2 Stars! You've GOT to see this Link!
Hoover 2000 VC338
2 months is way too soon to fail ~ unless you clean motels or hotels for a living.

Sounds like it got plugged up. I doubt if you can get it exchanged, but to try you would have to take it back where you bought it. But you have a years warranty, take it in to a warranty repair shop to get it repaired. Just take proof of purchase with you.

Well, the V belt is normally fairly slack until the handle is dropped below 45 degrees, which is when the belt tensioner assembly drops into place. If turning the brushroll by hand when the vacuum is in this position fails to rotate the self propel pulley, the tensioner is not functioning properly and will need to be replaced.
Also ensure that the brushroll can spin freely by hand, as these have a tendency to melt at the ends and seize the brushroll. I have also seen the groove that the v belt fits into melt itself out of round, which can cause the same symptom as you're describing.
Keep in mind as well that while the rubber belt may appear to be ok, it does have to be replaced every 3-6 months whether it breaks or not. Even though it hasn't broken, if you were to hold it up against a new belt, you would see that the old one has stretched significantly: which can decrease the machine's ability to rotate the self-propel transmission pulley and, in turn; the brushroll.
Feel free to contact me with any further questions.

remove the covers over the headlights and under the shiny foul. there are two screws. there are two tabs that hold down the cover over the wheels, they just pop on/off with a click.
on my xt. i had to remove the rolling brush and clean out all the hair that was stuck in the bearings. remove the screw holding down the motor and belt. pry out the roller brush to get to the bearings. there was some serious hair ball in there.
reassembled mine and it works perfectly now :)

I had same problem. Turned out to be the filter that sits above the waste cannister. Remove the waste cannister. There is a little orange lever that releases the filter. It was caked with dirt not allowing any air flow causing the motor to overheat.
This foam filter gets dirty pretty fast.

Its a possibility then that if the fuse has been replaced that the cable inside has either come apart or you have a broken switch. If its only a year then you should be covered automatically with Hoover's guarantee.
