Willieturbo - Unplug Kirby, remove the nozzle and the bag. Use a coat hanger wire to make sure there is nothing stuck in exhaust (under front fan cover). Remove disposable bag - check if there is nothing stuck in the plastic miniemptor and bag fill tube.
If no clogs - check if brush roll bristles stick out of the nozzle by about 1/8 of an inch. For more info go HERE and scroll down to brush/belt installation instructions.

lilmissjen - If brush sweeps AWAY from the vacuum then someone must have worked on the unit and switched wires that go from motor brushes to power switch go HERE and see pictures #16 and #18

Good Luck,

Roller doesnt spin on my kirby g series

That means that the belt is stretched or broken. You need to replace it. You can get replacement belts here:

Hoover Whirlwind with bag roller, bar does not turn, has both belts and suction is fine.

I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. It could be that the brushroll could be installed wrong and not in the vacuum correctly. Or the bearings on either end are froze up and not turning. Or the 2 belts that you described need changing, the suggested belt change is every 4 to 6 months for a flat belt change and the extra belts to be stored in a Ziploc bag in the refrigerator. If the brushroll id totally shot, then replace it with a new or rebuilt brushroll. please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or in the yellow pages, or contact the factory phone number or website to further assist you with your questions.
