Check the cord to make sure you have continunity throw both leads, check them at the cord reel, there are 2 wires hooked up to it, if not then the cord is bad. Check the swith also, the next cause would be the speen control mounted on the motor, part #04416342, sells for around $85. If your motor checks ok, then it most likely the speed control, they go out quite often.

Try the reset drive belt brush button - you'll find it underneath the main power switch on the handle. Also check the brush isn't clogged, by the sole plate by tipping it over and undoing the screws on the bottom place where the beater bar is.
