Question about Oreck Vacuums
Brand new? Warranty should still be in effect. I'd persue that route.

Replace your belt by removing the screws from the baseplate, removing the baseplate and brushroll, and hooking the belt around the silver metal motor pulley. Then put the belt on the pulley side of the brushroll, and pull the brushroll back into its home in the front nozzle, ensuring that the brushroll ends are oriented the same direction. Spin it to ensure that everything spins freely, and then replace the baseplate. Party.

Look at 3 things:
(1) is there something wrapped around the rear
wheels or axles?
(2) Is there something wrapped around the small, front wheels or axles. (not likely this is the culprit.)
(3) Is your brushroll still turning. (This requires looking underneath while unit is on, have someone else nearby to pull the cord from wall, turn on & off quickly and make sure brush roll spins.
If it is rear wheels, you can pop them out if necessary to clean the debris, they may be hard to press back in. Similar for the small front wheels, don't loose the axles. If brush roll is issue, check belt, insure that brush roll will spin freely and does not have debris wrapped around it.

It might be that the beater brush is spinning when you tip it up to look at it but slight pressure of it contacting the floor is enough to stop it.
If it were my machine I would remove the beater brush and clean it as best I could, paying particular attention to the end pieces on the brush that hold it in place. A little WD40 between the end pieces and some twisting to be sure it worked in well.
I would then reassemble with a new belt being sure it is on correctly so it turns the brush in the proper direction.
That is about the least expensive thing(s) you can do at this point before going further. I have one more potential cause, but it is best to check these first.
Please let me know how you make out.

Your Transmission fork has becime disconnected. You need to pull the transmission and make sure that it is installed correctly, Check the following and pay attention to picture number 17. I had the exact same problem which occurred because I dropped the Kirby hard after lugging it down the stairs, it is a very easy fix and I am a banker, not a repair guy. Good Luck! http://www.goodvac.com/kb_results.asp?ID=16
