SOURCE: brush roller not moving
This problem has unfortunately plagued many owners of this vacuum including myself. I'm not an expert on vacuums, but through some experimentation I found a workable solution. You can first try a new belt, but that will unlikely solve the problem. For some reason the drive shaft becomes too slick for the belt and so the shaft will spin but it won't catch the belt. I wrapped a piece of electrical tape around the shaft for some added friction, and voila, everything started working again. Eventually, the electrical tape shredded a bit and fell off, but it left enough residue on the shaft to retain friction. I know this sounds like a real hack job, but if you've given up hope on everything else, or you can't return the vacuum, it's worth a shot.

SOURCE: the brush does not rotate
Hello, see if you can turn the roler by hand ( MAKE SURE VACCUME is OFF), if you cant turn it try checking that there isnt something caught up on either side of the roler. Sometimes things can get caught on the spindel at either side and it winds up fairly tightly. If this isnt the problem then eithr a drive belt has worn or broken, or a driver cog could be worn. If this is the case then you will need a technician to have a look for you. I hope this is of some use.

This unit uses a turbine assy to turn the brushes. The brushes could have something jamming them. Remove the brush unit, it is held on 2 spring hooks 1 on each side. The brush unit is driven thru a 1/4" square post, only one brush is driven and it drives the next then it drives the next etc. If something is jammed in these gears it will stop the entire brush assy. The turbine assy could be bad, but I would check the brush assy first.

More than likely there is gunk underneath the endcaps. In the small airdriven attachment those end caps come off. It's likely true of the beater brush underneath too.
