very light "stuff" like dog hair will get stuck to the filter since that is where the suction goes. it's primary purpose was to keep dust out of the motor. This is a problem with many "bagless" cleaners. A bagged cleaner keeps all dirt and hair away from filters by utilizing the bag as primary filter. If you have alot of dog hair then this may have been the incorrect choice of a vac. all you can do is brush off the filter each time you use the vac. it will still pick up o.k. even when there is hair on the filter unless you leave it on day after day.

SOURCE: Roller problem
I have 3 Prontos, one in each part of the house. Two of mine had the rollers stop. I figured out the problem and it fixed both. Take the roller out by turning the plastic screw and popping the plate off. Pull all debris off the wheel that turns. Turn unit on and make sure this wheel is turning freely. Take the brush and look on the end with the square part. Take some pliers and gently pull this square piece off. I had to wiggle it a little, but it pops right off. Clean all debis (mine had several small dust balls and 1 long hair) in the square part and down in where the square part goes. Push the square part back on and put brush back in unit. This fixed both of mine. Hope it helps.

SOURCE: vacuum roller stops turning
with cleaner plugged in and turned on, push the little reset button on the side of the lower base of vac. Remember that the brush will not turn in the upright position. release your handle and you should be in business. hope this helps. please let us know. thanks renevacdoc

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.
