So sorry for the delay in replying, but the vac got sidelined, not least by health problems.

Anyway, it seems this model has some sort of interlock on the lamp housing which kills the motor. Needless to say on my machine it was intermittent, but smacking the housing firmly after fitting the belt for the seventeenth time sorted the problem, and it is now working! Not as nice as a proper pre-war Hoover junior, but I'm not the end user. Somehow my sister isn't as impressed with old stuff as I am.

Thanks to all who responded.

Mods, this can now be closed.

Regards,

Rick.
