Red rotor is not spinning. - Vacuums
Unscrew the plastic cap, take the rotor out and clean out any hair or debris that might be in the hole or on the rotor. Fixes mine every time.

I have Hoover Widepath Bagless 12 Amp Windtunnel vacuum. Yesterday I was vacuuming and smelled smoke and it shut itself off.

Hoover WindTunnel S3765. The motor spins and the belt turns when I turn the brushes on, and the brushes will spin. The problem is that when I do this on carpet, the brushes stop spinning.

I took the head apart and watched the motor turn the metal spindle that the belt rests on, and the belt turns as well.
