The belt is stretch and so it is slipping on the motor shaft. You need to change the belt. Here is a link for the instructions on how to change the belt and a link for the belt you need:

SOURCE: Brush roller won't turn

On my Dyson, there is a brush reset button on the top right hand side (if you are looking at the front) that you can press to reset the brush. I was vacuuming and too lazy to move a toy and this worked for me once I freed the rope from the brush.

Why doesn't brush roller rotate?


The ends may be clogged with debris. You will have to remove the brush roller and remove one end cap to disassemble the roller for cleaning.

Hoover windtunnel U5453-900.belt melted put another belt on brush was spinning.Brush spins but not easily.It spins then stops therefore burns the belt.How can i get the brush to spin around better


Kristie,
I would suggest taking the brush bearings at each end off and clean any lint or hair that might be in the ends of the brush. If you have regular ball bearings on your brush, you might need to replace the brush roller if the bearings themselves are tight. Hope this helps!

Brush bar is not spinning


Common causes of brush roller failure are belt breakage and clogging. If this is a Dyson animal vacuum, you may find the brush roller is so clogged with hair that it cannot rotate. The solution is to remove the brush roller and clean it thoroughly, particularly inside the end caps where hair accumulates. It is unlikely that an entire animal was ingested.

Brush not spinning


1. Make sure the belt is in contact with the shaft. 2. Remove the roller and clean the brushes AND the area that seats into the vacuum. If there is too much hair, string, etc. the brush may not roll. chances are the belt is probably not making contact. If it was you would smell rubber burning if the brush wasn't turning.

Brush won't spin when carpet cleaner is running


see this causes and fix it. God bless you
If the vacuum cleaner brush is not spinning, the brushroll bearing might be jammed. Try removing the brushroll assembly and cleaning all hair, string, lint, etc. from the brushroll bearing. If that doesn't solve the problem the brushroll may need to be replaced.

Dyson DC4 Brush will not spin - have checked belt - this is ok


The bearings on your brush have gone bad. Buy a new roller brush and replace the belt as well, even if the old one seems o.k. Most people don't realize that roller brushes have bearings in the ends that allow them to turn quickly and smoothly. If you get hair wrapped around the roller brush, this will kill the bearings.

My brush will not turn, and the brush control is stuck on "off"


I have had problems with the belts on my Mach 5 overheating (smell of burning rubber) and also with the motor overheating and shutting down.
I learned the hard way that one of the issues might be that the roller/brush on the bottom of the unit has a metal bearing inside the roller/brush that can become clogged with hair (both human and pet hair) which effects performance of the unit.
It’s fairly easy to fix.
Lay the vacuum on the floor so that you can see the roller/brush. Then remove the phillip head screws that hold the protective plastic plate over the roller/brush. (There are about 6 screws that hold this plastic protective plate in place) Also, you will be removing the (1) screw that also holds the plastic plate over the belts. There are (2) belts that you can remove and when in doubt replace these (2) belts for around $9.00.
Once you have the protective plastic plate off that covers the roller/brush disconnect the belt is around the roller. Take the roller and cut off any hair that is wrapped around the roller. Next, grab the roller by each end and twist the ends caps and (1) of the ends will unscrew. Once you have unscrewed one of the ends remove any hair or dust that is trapped under this cap. (Be careful not to lose the small metal washer that sit on top of the bearing)You will notice under this cap is a metal bearing that can become clogged and jammed with hair. The hair should come out fairly easy and allow the brush to spin fairly easy once you have screwed the end caps back in place test that it spins freely. If it doesn’t spin freely replace the roller/brush with a new one for about $23.00.
When you put the belts back on the thick rubber one (Belt # 40201-271) has probably become stretched and should be replaced for about $3.00. The small diameter belt that goes over the roller/brush probably does not usually need to be replaced and does not usually fit very tight. I have heard that people will take the small roller/brush belt and turn it upside down to get a better fit.
I just did this on my Mach 5 and it runs like a new machine. I did end up replacing the roller/brush head.
Hopefully you will find this useful.

I had the same problem with the belt breaking and the roller not spinning. I read about giving the roller a couple of revolutions to seat the belt, so I put another new belt on. It still didn't spin. I realized it was the end cap that was not spinning so I took off the roller and gently pried off the end cap and there was an enormous amount of thread spun around inside of the small area. I had to keep digging it out with tweezers. Quite unbelievable. I also found that when it spits out instead of sucking up, it needs to be cleaned. Check all areas, especially the part that is round that you have to twist open. (Inside, behind the foam filter and UP).

Hoover windtunnel u6634-900


I have the same problem. I believe, after some inspection, that the mechanism which allows for the circular spin of the brush has failed. Though I'm no mechanic, I believe my girlfriend's long (and beautiful) hair became entangled underneath the gray "end-cap" causing breakage of the rotating mechanism (which I believe is normally housed within the brush under the rectangular "end-cap"...the other "end-cap" piece is circular). Now the brush will spin about 6 rotations but with each spin the gray "end-cap" will extend on its screw rather than spinning freely. I believe my only option is to order another brush. We'll see if it solves the problem.
