I cleaned everything I could see and put new belt on. As soon as I turned it on the roller brush remained fixed and then the belt broke. I know I put belt on correctly. Tell me please what the bearings look like as I don't see anything on the ends of the brush that can be removed

If the roller brush cannot be rotated easily by hand, it is likely that debris is jammed inside the end caps.Make note of the direction arrows on the end caps as you remove the roller brush. You will need to know this for reinstallation. The end caps are fastened with stop nuts. Removal of one will allow the inner shaft to be extracted for examination and cleaning. An old toothbrush is a good cleaning tool. Reinstall the inner shaft and stop nut. Check for free rotation of the brush roller. Place a new belt over the brush roller and reinstall the brush roller, being careful to observe the position of the arrows on the end caps. Inspect the motor shaft and remove any old belt residue before installing the new belt on the shaft.
Your belt is broken and needs to be replaced. Turn this brush side up. Unscrew the cover plate and you will see where the belt goes. Pull out roller, put on new belt, put back together and there you go.
Hello, I hope your having a good day considering your problem.
It sounds like you have done everything and more you can at your end. My opinion based on your detailed description is that is possible you might need to barrings in your roller on both ends. Now sometimes you can take it to a local vac shop (just the roller of course) and they can put the new barrings in as well as maybe it is possible that something is just loose or warn out. Sometimes you are better (for cost of repair reasons) to buy a new roller. I would first personally, take the roller off, and take in to local shop and have them give you a price to replace or repair. That appears to me what has happened. Its also possible, some dirt and debre has got trapped in where there barrings are and it is sticky or just plan stuck. Mike
When they make noise like that there is usually an issue with the drive system (the belt and roller brush). I would try cleaning off the roller brush and putting a new belt on. You can access the roller brush and belt by turning the vacuum over so the brush faces up. There is a cover plate over the roller brush which can be removed by removing the (4) phillips screws. with the cover plate off, you can remove the brush and old belt. clean the brush off really good and put it back with a new belt. This is normal maintenence for this model and should be done every 6 months. You can get the replacement belt here:
My roller wouldn't turn and the problem was that the larger flat self propel belt had gotten stretched. I replaced it with a new belt and the roller works great now. So perhaps you need to replace that belt also. Hold it up to a new belt and see if it is significantly larger and you'll know it stretched.
Have you got the correct belt? If its breaking then the brush end caps or something is clogged. If you can get into the floor head ensure you look at the actual brush roll to see if there is anything is clogged or trapped. Remove all matter of dust and see if that works.
If was foxed by that one too. There is a microswitch or device that detects it the unit is upright - it inhibits the roller motor. Soon as you lower the arm the rollers go around.....if not then it must be a fault.
