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.

You have either broken the belt or more likely the clutch easiest is to replace cleaner head assembly £75ish or call Dyson and arrange a service if you're not DIY inclined but check belt !st

The main brush will not spin


I would guess the belt is broken. That happens often. Get a correct belt. Remove the brush roller. Wrap the belt around the roller and drive peg. Reasemble -- easier said than done, but keep trying.

Beaters stop when vaccuming rug...didn't when new


I believe you need to change the belt that drives the brushes. When it gets stretched out, it will just spin on the axle of the motor or spin on the brush and smoke.

Brush will not spin any longer


If the brush won't spin at all, it's either the drive belt or the roller beater brush is clogged. Pet hair can quickly clog a vacuum. Turn the unit over and see if the brush will rotate by hand. If yes, it's probably the belt. Also look for debris and clear as much out as possible. You may have to remove the bottom plate and clean the bottom of the unit out. If you do have to go that far, it would be best to replace the drive belt and thoroughly clean the vacuum.

Hoover Empower Widepath, brush won't spin.


The belt needs to be changed, it's probably spinning in place which is causing the smell (burnt rubber).

Vaccum has no suction


Need a new belt -- you might have suction but you need the brush to spin (hard to help without make or model, upright or canister)
