This is usually a sign that your vacuum belt has split or broken. Remove any screws to the part that houses your belt and check to see if it's still on the beater bar or not. If it isn't...look further to locate where it is. It may have only slipped off, or it may be broken.
Take the manufacturer's model number of your vacuum, bring it to the store and locate a new belt. You can usually find a generic replacement in most hardware stores if you can't get the brand name. Or you can go to the manufacturer's website and order the brand name one there. They usually only cost about $5. each.
Good Luck...and happy cleaning !!

There are end caps and you can replace them. You will need to expose the brush bar/ beater; and remove it. Dig out the end caps and replace with exactly the same type. If you inspect the so called bearings, you may find matted up material that caused the stoppage. Clean and retry the system before getting a set of end caps.

Beater bar won't turn

The belt may look ok but they lose elasticity and should be replaced at least every 6 months to deep clean properly. The beater bar may have debris stuck in the endcaps which keeps them from spinning freely. Depending in what vacuum you have, some have a separate motor which turns the beaterbar. If yours has a separate motor it could be the motor, the switch, the wiring or a variety of other possibilities.

Brush won't rotate

Undo the screws for the housing pull out the beaterbar and remove any string or hair. Put a new belt on the beaterbar then put the bearings back into their slots and gently put the other end of the belt over the motor shaft.

That means you had too much hair in your beaterbar or that you had the vacuum set too low to the floor. The beaterbar stopped turning and the rubber belt was slipping creating friction and heating to the point of melting. When you vacuum check often that the powerhead (beaterbar) is moving. If the belt ever slips it stretches or melts in half and must be replaced.
If you were referring to the motor then there isn't much you can do but replace the motor.
