I love this vacuum but had the same problem.
take the roller off and flip the thin belt inside out. This fixed my vac and works great again.

I took the top of the vacuum apart and found the cable that drives the wheels was broken. I am going to order a new cable.

SOURCE: brushes don't spin
try this please : switch the carpet/bare floor dial back & forth 5 times, ending on carpet. Tilt the handle back as if to vacuum upright & lay the vacuum on its side so it is resting on the side opposite the carpet/bare floor dial. Turn the vacuum on.
or try this also if the above suggestion didn't work :
Maybe the belt is broke. You will have to replace the belt before the roller can spin. You must have run over something in the carpeting like string or whatever to have it break. Happens all the time. Get several replacement belts to keep as spares while you're at it as nothing is worse then having to vacuum and no spare belts.
please rate !

Hi, W/D here.
Try to turn the roller brush (beater bar) by hand. It is probably very difficult, if not impossible to move. Lots of things will cause the beater bar to freeze up. Long hair, thread, carpet fibers and such. To remove the beater bar, you'll need to remove the sole plate that surrounds it. It is held on by screws.
Once the plate is removed, lift out the beater bar, paying careful attention to the bearings on the ends of the beater bar in case they come off. Slip the bar out from under the belt. Clean the beater bar, removing anything that might impede the bar's working. Remove the belt and inspect it carefully. Any signs of burning, cracking or other deterioration of the belt is reason enough to replace it. While the belt is off, look at the motor shaft where the belt rides. Clean this area, removing any foreign matter that you find. Slip the new belt over the motor shaft, then slide the beater bar into the loop of the belt. It cannot go but one way, so align the part of the beater bar where the belt fits over it when installing the beater bar. The fit going back in should be tight. place the end of the beater bar that has the belt closest to it into the frame, seating the washer bearing on the end of the beater bar into the slot. Then install the other end in tha same fashion. gently roll the beater bar by hand, making sure that it rolls with some tension, but isn't in a bind. Install the cover plate, and try it out.
Best regards, --W/D--

Are you sure you have the correct belt? The proper belt is # 59156500. It is 5/16" wide and about 2 1/2" in diameter. This is not a common belt.
