The brush bearings wear out on these things. I know I replaced mine twice before buying new carpet. I've had it for 10 years,
You can order these parts on the Bissell website:

SOURCE: brush will not turn
Possible Solution: I had the same problem with my Powerforce vacuum. Please take note that I AM NOT a vacuum cleaner repairman, nor have I played one on TV. Try taking your beater bar out, and if it looks similar to the one pictured (Model#203-1195), get a cresent wrench. Look at the end of the beater bar one will be squared on the sides to hold the shaft inside statonary. Take the wrench and adjust it to fit the nub on that end. Grab the bar in the center, and turn the end with the wrench. Mine popped and came loose, then it could be turned by hand. A little light oil allowed to run into the end cap, turn it up and spin it a few times to let the oil work down the inside and put it back on. Mine works fine for now. Good Luck!!

Make sure you have released the handle, as if you wanted to push the machine forward. If the handle is locked upright, the brushes do not spin.
If they still don't spin, you may have a broken belt. Look carefully at the base, on each side. As I face the front of mine, on the right side of the machine, a small belt goes around one brush and a small cog wheel. On the left side, a larger belt goes around both brushes. If either belt is broken, the brushes will not spin. This can happen if you let gunk build up inside the clear plastic side pieces or around or above the brushes. It's very important to constantly be cleaning your Bissell. The belts can be ordered online and replaced. See your owner's manual.
