what i would do is buy a new one or a hoover for parts and take the broken one and cut it open with a dremal tool to see what it looks like.

as long as the unit propells in both directions smoothly its fine.....try greasing the agitator bearings .....replace belts all prevent drag and cuts down on the self propelled windtunnels screach .....they all do to some degree.....and being that they have not produced the concept or power max since 1994 ....its just old not mess with it .....or it will end up in the with it its part of its charm
