What do ya think? (Vacuum knocking sound)

We have a Hoover Mach 5 Vacuum. My wife was vacuuming this weekend and got a tie from a crib bumper in it and pulled it out. Since then it has a knocking sound. I can't figure out if it is the roller with the brushes or the belt. Any ideas and if so how to fix it.

Did you unplug the vacuum, turn it upside down, and access the compartment where the roller and belt are located. Roller can be removed and inspected and lint and hair removed from it. Belt may be badly worn or damaged. It can be replaced. You can also check your owner's manual for instructions on vacuum maintenance and where to purchase or order parts. Hoover bags and belts are readily available. Just jot down the model number before heading to the store.
