Hoover SteamVAc LS - brushes turn slowly

\015 On my Hoover SteamVac, the brushes turn, but slowly. I can stop them from turning altogether just by holding the brushes lightly. Is this normal? Shouldn't there be a bit more torque in the turning of the brushes? I have removed the brush assembly and cleaned it up. It turns fine. Everything else looks good. The square peg on the assembly is intact.\015

My machine (Hoover Wind Tunnel - bagless) is only 1 yr. old. The agitator brush doesn't turn all the time. I know it's not supposed to turn when in the upright position. However, it only seems to work when I have the setting on high. When I stop, but have not put the machine in the upright position, it stops again and then slowly starts moving. Could the V-belt be worn out already? In the owner's manual it states that this belt is not normally replaced. The exact same thing happened with my old
