Question about Vacuums
It is very likely that the rubber drive belt that connects the motor to the beater bar / brush has broken. This is especially true if you've had the vacuum for very long and never had to change it before. The good news is that this belt an inexpensive part and is replaced under normal usage as it is a wear and tear type item - not unlike brakes in a car.
Depending on the model vacuum you have, accessing the belt for replacement may require some simple tools. Most of the time a medium sized regular or Phillips screw driver is all that is needed to remove screws / pry the tool apart for access.
If you provide the manufacturer's name and model of the vacuum or attachment - I will be happy to get you more information on how to replace the belt.
