Lie machine on its side pull back handle as if vacuuming & switch on (KEEP YOUR FINGERS & ANY LOOSE CLOTHING CLEAR OF BRUSH ROLLER)
Brush should spin if it doesnt ensure clutch control knob on side of machine is in drive position if it isnt rotate knob by hand to drive brush should now spin.
If it doesnt & your machine has A clutch either clutch will need replacing or belts will need replacing.
Manuals are available to replace belts & remove the clutch from this site http://dysonmanuals.llc.nu/index.htm

Theres a little bendable neck that hose with suction plugs into. Thats the one thats clogged. You will have to fish it out by taking off the roller and clearing the clog.

It's October now so this is probably too late to be useful for you but it might help someone: I had the same problem. I used a bright light to see that there was a clog up high in one of the plastic tubes on the side. Using an untwisted wire coat hanger I went up through the flap on the bottom of the vacuum. I pushed the cork screw end of the coat hangar up the tube and twisted it then pulled it out. It took three times to remove the clog completely but it worked. A plumber's snake might work even better.

I actually pulled back my old vac after using this thing. Having said that I have played around with it and one quick cure is the remove or clean the little circle sponge filter at bottom. If you remove the canister and look at the bottom of vac you will see where the air travels down through a small circle. In there is a sponge filter that is probably clogged. Now Being frustrated, I just removed it and the vac sucks like crazy now. There are just way to many filters to worry about. As mentioned you need to clean the top main filiter, then the top sponge filter, and then dont froget there is alson one in the front of the machine (square paper filter) that catches dust leaving vac. These are on top of the little circle one that I removed, so I dont think it will be missed. Try and see what you think.

There are a couple areas to check:
1. The black gasket where clearview water collecting unit and the base's front meet. Ensure gasket is in good condition.
2. Check if you're getting sufficient suction: remove the water collecting unit. When you turn on the the unit, you'll feel suction out of a black hose pointing upwards next to the grey dial. If you're not getting sufficient suction you need to check that all the gaskets are seated properly. there are 3 gaskets: (1) an orange one seated between the black hose and the base unit (2 and 3): On the bottom of the unit there is a removeable panel. This panel has a gasket (red) and inside there is a white gasket.
