Belt is broken or over stretched and needs to be replaced. If belt is good, then clean threads that wrap around the brush at each end. Then place a couple drops of motor oil at each end of brush where a crack goes in a circle around the brush.
I work at an Oreck store and my manager & I were discussing your problem and the only thing that we could come up with is wondering if you were putting the belt around the brush roller, the motor shaft and the post for the screw to hold on the belt cover. If you put it around the last item in the list, that may be your problem. I have seen many vacuums come in with the belt around that and it is not supposed to go there. The only other thing that I can suggest is to make sure that you do not have anything in the base plate that would be jamming the brush when you put it on. Hope this helps!
This is pretty easy. Turn vac upside down, remove brush cover, brush with belt on it pops out on each side. You must get the exact replacement belt so take your model number and any other numbers to vacuum repair shop. The belt around brush then around motor spindle, replace brush and cover.
I can't tell for sure from the pictures, but there are two possibilities - the drive belt to the brushes broke, or the brush can't turn due to excessive hair wrapped around the shaft. If the belt is OK but the brush does not turn, you should smell burning rubber.
If the belt is broken, you have to remove the bottom plate to expose the brush, remove the brush and the broken belt, and replace the belt, and put it back to gether. While you have the brush out, now would be a good time to clean it - remove the hair, etc from the brush and around the shaft. Good Luck!
lower handle to floor and flip entire unit over. In the bottom near the brush, there are 2 levers that hold the cover on. flip both levers and pull up on cover. It will come out of the 2 wire holders that hold down the 2 front tabs.With the cover removed you can easily access the brush. Firmly grasp 1 side of the brush and pull straight up. This may take a lot of force as the brush may have been seated for a long time. Pull both sides out and clean the area underneath the brush. Also make sure nothing is wrapped around the brush or motor. After cleaning you're ready to install new belt. Place new belt around brush. After pushing brush through the new belt, with belt loosely around brush slide brush back into housing 1 side at a time. The brush fits in very tightly. The ends have 2 pieces of metal that act as springs, these are installed facing the top. Make sure the brush is pushed down tightly toward the bottom or the cover will not fit right. Once brush is in stretch belt around motor tip. Replace cover by placing the 2 tips into the wire clips and close. Flip the latches closed and turn machine over. Lift handle and you're good to go. You have now completed the worlds longest instructions for a vacuum belt...ever!

If the brush does not spin you probably should remove it and clean well. Also, on each end of the brush you will find a holder that keeps the brush in the unit. These should turn freely around the brush. If they do not, clean and add a bit of WD40 then manually spin the holders around the brush and reinstall.
Please contact me if these suggestions do not work for you.
Have you cleaned out the dirt compartment? This compartment is very small and fills fast ... Roomba does not have a vacuum in it ... it just sweeps so make sure the brushes are working and in good order ... to test the brushes hold it up and turn it on make sure your fingers are clear of wheels and moving brushes before turning it on. Visually inspect to see if brushes are turning also check for hair and string around wheels and brushes. dont forget to rate me Thx :) and good luck
Belt worn or hair build up can clog it from spinning. I've seen this on other models. Just remove the hair slowly. If the Belt is worn you can replace that from Bissel or any store that sells their product.
