Having problems with your Hoover U6485-900 Windtunnel Bagged Upright ?

Hoover Wind tunnel self propel not propelling - how do I know if it is the belt or the idler arm?

\015 I understand how to change both belts, yet have also seen that the idler arm may need replacing. Short of replacing the belts just to find out it is still not moving on its own - is there a way to distinguish which needs repairing?\015

I don't know where this plastic piece connects. It appears to me that the idler are when raised creates tension on the belt which drives the roller. I'm at a loss trying to figure ou

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
