Question about Bissell 9200 Upright Vacuum
If the belt is still OK and you can turn the brush by hand (make sure the power is off when you try) then there is only the drive motor and the power switch left in the circuit. Bissell's are very simple machines and you can easily remove the topc over with about 6 screws so you can get at the insides and spares are easily obtained.

The brush bearings wear out on these things. I know I replaced mine twice before buying new carpet. I've had it for 10 years,
You can order these parts on the Bissell website:

Make sure you have released the handle, as if you wanted to push the machine forward. If the handle is locked upright, the brushes do not spin.
If they still don't spin, you may have a broken belt. Look carefully at the base, on each side. As I face the front of mine, on the right side of the machine, a small belt goes around one brush and a small cog wheel. On the left side, a larger belt goes around both brushes. If either belt is broken, the brushes will not spin. This can happen if you let gunk build up inside the clear plastic side pieces or around or above the brushes. It's very important to constantly be cleaning your Bissell. The belts can be ordered online and replaced. See your owner's manual.

The brush roll will only spin when your handle is not in the locked upright position, once the handle goes upright - the brushroll de-activates
