Question about Vacuums
The brush on the bottom doesnot spin
Double check for anything that might be holding it from spinning (shoe lace, string, hair, ribbon, etc)
If the brushes are free to move by hand, you most likely have either a broken belt or a belt that simply came off the motor. What you'll need to do in either case, is open up the vacuum cover. The screws are usually located at the bottom of the vacuum (where the brushes are) and remove all the visible screws you see.
Most of the time (being that I don't know what kind of vac you have, that is enough to remove the top cover off for you to inspect either the motor or the belt which attaches to the motor. I know on my hoover, the belt slips off very easily, so I always need to keep my screwdriver handy to perform this.
Hope this helps.
