My Hoover Windtunnel Mach 6.9 brush roller quit working. Upon investigating I found that the idler arm pulley was broken so I managed to replace that. Before putting the cover back on I see the control knob for the roller brush moves a plastic piece left or right to activate/deactivate the brush roller.

Nothing inn the canister after using,suctione working,bottom roller working,no air leaks from hoses.Also when running awhile it shuts off by itself,have to wait awhile to use again
