This may be the belt, and it may be the brush roller.

I am leaning more towards the belt. The belt on any vac should be changed once a year, and for the pet lovers 2 times a year.

Good luck.

Why doesn't brush roller rotate?


The brush roller may have been reinstalled incorrectly, i.e., not seated. The brush roller may be binding on the bottom plate or the bottom plate could have been reinstalled incorrectly.

Hoover F5915-900 brushes will not rotate


The motor rotates the bar. My guess would be that the rubber belt that goes from the motor to the belt has fallen off the bar , broke, or the bar is not seated properly. GOOD LUCK FRIEND.

Spinbrush not working on eureka as1104


If the belt is intact, the brush roller ends may be so jammed (usually with hair) that it cannot rotate. Also, if the brush roller cannot rotate, the motor shaft may be rotating in one spot on the belt and eventually will burn it out. The solution in the case of the brush roller is to remove it and check for free rotation. If the ends are binding, the brush roller will have to be disassembled to remove debris.

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.

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.

Brushes not rotating


If your unindentified vacuum cleaner is an upright, the belt may be stretched and unable to rotate the roller brush. The roller brush ends could be clogged with debris, preventing it from rotating freely. The solution is to disconnect your vacuum cleaner from the power and turn it upside down for inspection. It may be necessary to remove the roller brush and remove the end caps to clean inside. Replace any worn parts

The brush roller is not rotating on my Kenmore Whispertone. It will pick up on floor surfaces. Help!


Be sure that there are no fibers wound around the roller or lodged in the wheel well of the brush roller. That is usually the cause of a brush roller not rotating. You might need to use scissors to clip the fibers and then pull them from the roller. The fibers might range from human and pet hair to carpet fibers, threads, string, yarn, embroidery floss. They wind around the roller and eventually "tighten up" so that the rotator will not move. I have found that, depending on my current craft project, I may have quilting thread, knitting yarn, embroidery floss, or other such goodies wrapped around the roller. When our daughters were at home we would have long, beautiful blonde hair tangled in the roller. I hope this helps.

My purple and red Dyson has become hard to push. Could a belt have broken?


It's simple to tell if a belt has broken. Just switch the machine on and have a look (look, don't feel) to see if the brush roller is rotating. If it is, then the belt is not broken.
Depending on how much use your machine has had, it's quite likely that the brushes on the brush roller are worn to the point where you need a new brush roller.  Most vacuum cleaners rely on rotation of the brush roller to pull them along, so if the bristles are too short this doesn't happen.
I hope this helps. Please remember to rate this response.
