I have an old Hoover Spirit canister vacuum cleaner.
The beater bar power attachment called the Quadraflex Powermatic
caught some carpet and popped a belt or something. Popped a belt
is my best guess since the motor is going but the rotating brush is
I do not know how to remove the top case to have a look.
Are there any sources for a manual for this device?

m afraid to in case those are screws that hold the motor in.
I took mine apart. Those screws will allow you to open the top. As you open it,
there is the rubber piece that goes around the head.
This comes out by pulling down the rubber gasket which has a notch that goes
into the upper lip, the front has rubber points that you also pull out. This
will expose the whole section that you will be able to relplace the belt that
drives the sweeper. Mine is about 25 years old and I hate to part with it, but
my wife and I may just have to part with it. It attaches to the dimension 1000
canaster. I may just use the body if I can't fix it. Go to Hoover.com they
should have the directions and manual that should tell you exactly how to open
it up. Good Luck
