It could just be the belt. If the belt is worn or stretched It will not turn the roller brush. You can get replacement belts here:

Brush not turnning


The brush roller is driven by a belt installed on the motor shaft. The belt could be broken or off the shaft. The brush roller could be clogged inside the end caps with debris which prevents rotation. To solve the debris problem, it will be necessary to remove the belt from the motor shaft, then note the orientation of the end caps and remove the brush roller. Next, remove one end cap and check for clogging material. Remove the material. Slide the brush roller shaft away from the end of the brush roller to check for clogging material at the opposite end. Remove the material. Slide the brush roller shaft back into position and reinstall the end cap. Reinstall the brush roller in the correct position. Reinstall the belt. Check for proper rotation of the brush roller.

the motor spins around a steel shaft that sticks out on one end, and the belt is driven by that shaft, belts are easily damaged and broken, meaning roller wont spin. Often a burning smell of rubber is noticed after motor shaft spins on stuck belt. cause is always hair./string/something at the three contact points. motor shaft and belt, roller and vacuum body become clogged. become familiar with taking cover off roller/belt, and cleaning Checking moving parts roller/belt come out easily and simple to clean...keep spare belts.

If the roller brush cannot be rotated easily by hand, it is likely that debris is jammed inside the end caps.Make note of the direction arrows on the end caps as you remove the roller brush. You will need to know this for reinstallation. The end caps are fastened with stop nuts. Removal of one will allow the inner shaft to be extracted for examination and cleaning. An old toothbrush is a good cleaning tool. Reinstall the inner shaft and stop nut. Check for free rotation of the brush roller. Place a new belt over the brush roller and reinstall the brush roller, being careful to observe the position of the arrows on the end caps. Inspect the motor shaft and remove any old belt residue before installing the new belt on the shaft.

HOW TO CHANGE A BELT


Hi there...You will need a Phillips screwdriver to get the bottom cover off.Remove the screws and then remove the bottom cover.Clean out any excess dirt in the general area of the roller bar and motor assembly area.Place one end of the belt over the steel shaft of the motor and then roll the other end of the belt on to the end of the roller bar.placing the belt on the top of the roller bar and roll the bar slowly and feed the belt onto the roller bar until it is completely in place.Replace the bottom cover and put all the screw back in.
Plug your vacuum in and turn it on with the roller bar off the floor, in other words let it run for 10 seconds until you put it on the carpet allowing the belt to position itself properly on the roller bar.

Motor runs vacuum has suction on attachment but brushes won't Rotate


This problem is most often caused by a broken brush roller belt. Sometimes, although very rarely, there is a separate motor which turns the brush, or there may be something that is causing brush roller to bind so that a belt does not last long. I don't know what your situation is but I'll give it my best shot. Lets just assume the most common problem (97% of the time) and that it is a broken belt,
FIRST: UNPLUG THE VACUUM CLEANER. Write down the model number of the machine so that you make have it with you when you purchase a new belt.
Set up an area to work and lay down newspapers to do this job as it can be messy. Or, of course, if you do it on the carpet, you can vacuum it up when your finished
Normally to remove the brush roller and install a new belt most vacuums will have some way to gain access. Either there are:
a) Screws on the top of the roller sections that if you remove them you can tip the cover up so that you can remove it. Sometimes there are cosmetic caps over where the screws are. or
b) Screws on the bottom of the roller section so that you can remove them, then a cover, and then the brush roller itself.

When you have the roller exposed, remove it carefully and take note to observe the parts and how they are oriented. This will help with the reassembly process. Often the brush roller is a simple one piece unit, but it pays to keep track of your work.
1 Remove the broken belt.
2 Remove the brush roller.
3 If there are any carpet strands wrapped around the roller, remove or unwind them. If there is material that is causing the roller to bind which is caught in the ends of the roller, of course, remove them as well.
4 Reinstall the roller with the belt loosely wrapped around it so that the other end of it can be put around the motor shaft that turns it. This step may be harder than it looks and you may need a lot of strength to wrap the belt around that shaft. It depends on the design of the unit. Sometimes it is alternately easier to put the belt around the shaft first and then put the roller into position.
5 Once the roller and belt are in their final positions, Re-assemble.
6 Before plugging the vacuum cleaner in, Check to see that the Roller will turn without binding.
You will need to use some force because you are turning the roller itself and the motor via the belt. So it does not need to turn easily but it should not be stuck. If it is stuck, for any reason, when you turn the vacuum cleaner on you will burn up the new belt with plenty of smoke
to make things exciting and stink up the house.
7 If the belt is not binding then plug the cleaner in and test it.
All should be well,
Hope this helps,
Best Regards,
Mark

Roller does not turn; I was vacuuming a rug and a string got stuck in roller-took it off but now the roller will not turn. suction is fine.


The roller drive belt may be stripped, worn partway through where it goes around the motor shaft, thrown off the motor shaft, or broken. Take the bottom plate off the carpet sweeper and have a look.

If the belt was damaged when the roller brush got stuck, then you get to replace it. On most of these, the easiest way is to put the new belt around the roller pulley, reinstall the roller, stretch the belt around the end of the motor shaft, then turn the motor by hand while pushing the belt on. If the motor also has a pulley on it, you may have to remove the motor screws to get enough slack on the belt, then pull the motor into place and put the screws back in.

Why does the belt keep breaking as soon as I turn on the vacuum?


Hi Have you got the correct belt? If its breaking then the brush end caps or something is clogged. If you can get into the floor head ensure you look at the actual brush roll to see if there is anything is clogged or trapped. Remove all matter of dust and see if that works.

Changing the belt


Have you pulled the roller out? Once you take the bottom plate off, the roller should slide out of its slot. Then you should easily be able to access the motor shaft.
