Belt around brush roller is worn, it spins freely when there is no pressure on it. But put it on the floor, the belt won't turn the brushes. I suggest taking unit to vac repair shop for new belt installation
If you are talking about the beater bar brushes. I replaced mine and had to order them online , also there is a transmission they call it which is like a clutch on a cordless drill, where it will ratchet or skip when it binds up, My problem was the beater bar brushes were wore down. to change this remove plastic bottom cover and then work the bar out (this stretches the belt ) so it takes some strength to get it out, I would suggest replacing the belt also if you are doing this,I also ordered it with the brush bar at same time. If it's the motor (electric) brushes you are talking about , I have not encountered a problem with those yet. I hope this helps you out and don;t forget to rate it thumbs up ! thanks
Have you cleaned out the dirt compartment? This compartment is very small and fills fast ... Roomba does not have a vacuum in it ... it just sweeps so make sure the brushes are working and in good order ... to test the brushes hold it up and turn it on make sure your fingers are clear of wheels and moving brushes before turning it on. Visually inspect to see if brushes are turning also check for hair and string around wheels and brushes. dont forget to rate me Thx :) and good luck
Did this start happening after you removed the clear side pieces, to clean around the brushes? You may have loosened or removed the black plastic arms that hold the brushes in place off the floor. One goes on each side, and is mounted to the Bissell with a silver screw with a built in washer. The brushes fit inside these two arms, and they are also held in position by the black belts. The big one goes around both brushes on the left side as I face the machine. The small one goes around the back brush and a small cog on the right side, as I face the Bissell.
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.

Hello, I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. It probably is not the filter that will start the brushes turning again, it may be a few other things. There is a switch in the front that indicates brushes on and brushes off, and the switch could be broken, it could be that the brushes come in an assembly and the assm could be belt driven and you would have to replace the belt or the drive mechanism the turns the brushes is broken. These are just suggestions and you should check the schematic in your owner’s manual under trouble shooting. If you don’t have a owner’s manual, please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or in the yellow pages, or contact the factory phone number or website to further assist you with your questions. http://www.hoover.com Telephone Contact our Customer Service Department at 1.330.499.9499 Monday through Friday 8 a.m. - 7 p.m. EST Thanks, Don the Vac Man Go Ahead.

Posted by hoofbeats1 on Jul 01, 2008 My machine is a little more than a year old. I have used it about 5 times. It started leaking the third time I used it. The fourth time I took it out, the brushes would not spin (I did clean them and rinse them after use each time). Now the engine screams and won't **** anything up. Do you have any suggestions?

Sounds like you really need a new belt. Don't know why it is taking so long for you to get one. But belts stretch and then won't turn the brush roll under load. Call around to your local repair shops, must will a good selection of belts on hand.
