Question about Vacuums
Cleaned the brush and made sure the pipe wasn't clogged
Sounds like the belt is broken or stretched, tip it over and remove the screws holding the brush in position and the cover and belt should come off.

Take the brushroll out and see if it turns freely just by holding the end. Also make sure that the belt isn't stretched out. Also, before putting the head on the vac, you have to pick the belt up on the "finger" that's in the head. You can verify this by looking into the circle that's cut out of the metal. When the head is affixed to the vac, then turn the belt lifter back around to the proper position and all should be well. If you still need help, you may call us at 1-866-509-1952. Thanks

SOURCE: Roomba brushes won't spin
I had this problem with my Roomba Discovery. I ran across your question while searching for an answer. My main symptoms were, Roomba hesitated a lot, and the dust bin did not fill. I had plenty of hair wrapped around the brushes and against the filter.
I just finished taking my Roomba apart. I found the motor drive shaft had a LOT of hair wrapped around it and it had climkbed into my gearbox. I took that apart and cleaned all the hair out of the gearbox. My Roomba is back to normal now, filling the dust bin.

hey i had the same problem with mine, (standing over it and looking straight down) there should be two screws on the top of the yellow cover, one on each side, take those out and the yellow cover should easliy pop off. if the white ink is off the belt or the belt isnt tight than replace, once off just pop the wheel brush (which has the belt around it) up out of its socket and take off of the belt from the wheel brush and motor's metal pole, then put on the new one just like the old one was. let me know how it works out, firstname.lastname@example.org

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.

It maybe that the belts were not installed properly, or that the roller brush might be as well. Here's a good video that explains the proper procedure of how to replace the belts on your vacuum cleaner, as well as basic maintenance on your Hoover:
