There is a reset on the power head, does the wand fit tight in the neck of the power head, if not you may have a problem there, either the wand or the neck. If the lever is stuck on, then it is jammed or broke, maybe a spring is out of place, in any event the canister will have to be taken apart to see what the problem is.

SOURCE: ROLLER BRUSHES WON'T ENGAGE
THESE BRUSHROLLS HAVE A RUBBER PAD WHICH IS CALLED A CLUTCH PAD. THIS MAY BE WORN, OR THE SLIDERS MAY JUST NEED A SMALL WASHER WHICH YOU CAN GET FROM YOUR LOCAL RICCAR DEALER. ALWAYS MAKE SURE YOUR LINKAGE ROD IS CONNECTED PROPERLY. ROD SHOULD BE ON THE BOTTOM PLATE SIDE, IF YOU HAVE THE MACHINE TURNED OVER WITH THE BOTTOM PLATE OFF IT SHOULD BE ON TOP OF THE BRUSHROLL.

belts broke need to replace but before you put the new belt on clean the motor shaft ,broken bels usually leave burnt rubber on the motor shaft.,if you don't clean the shaft the new belt won't last long

The same thing happened to me about a year ago with this very model.
The issue on mine was a small, copper-colored metal wheel that attaches to the end of the brush roller. You'll need to remove the top cover (there are several screws).
Once it's off, you should see the belt, the beater brush, and the metal gear. The gear didn't fit correctly - so the motor just spins without moving the brush. I ended up going to the store and buying superglue that withstands high tempuratures, then gluing the gear to the motor's shaft... and hammering the thing into place before the glue 'set' too much. ...Not fun, but it's working and has been ever after. I can take photos of the thing if need be.
