it's very easy: take off the nozzle, make sure the green arrows allign, then turn the knob anti clockwise untill the red arrows allign, make sure the belt is on the hook[ look at the back of the nozzle and loock in the hole to see if the belt on the hook. Now and only now you put the nozzle back onto the machine. the you turn the knob clockwise untill the green arrows allign...........

Must be a Hoover, The flat belt may look ok but I am sure it has stretched to the point where under load it won't drive the wheels or the brush roll. Could also be a bad brush roll.

It sounds like you need to replace the actuator arm or the cable to it. Look for Hoover part 43143046 for a start. I've got a similar problem.

SOURCE: Brush roller won't turn
On my Dyson, there is a brush reset button on the top right hand side (if you are looking at the front) that you can press to reset the brush. I was vacuuming and too lazy to move a toy and this worked for me once I freed the rope from the brush.
