Lubricate each end of the roller brush with motor oil. Bearings inside the roller brush need lubrication for the brush to turn easily. Remove any pieces of thread that have wrapped around the roller brush. If it does not spin after doing the above steps, then either the belt is slipping or the bearings are severely damaged in the roller brush. Then you need either a smaller belt or a new roller brush.

Is there suction at the hose? If not it is either blocked or the suction fan is broken. If there is, then there is a blockage in the pickup section, something is lodged across the channel after the brushes and before the place where the hose plugs in.

I think there is a safety switch to prevent it from running with the canister out so hard to check for suction at the top of the motor/suction fan. Make sure nothing is over that part under the canister too! If you can figure out how to bypass the safety switch (if there is one), you should have good suction where the canister sets on top of the motor base.

You'll need a model/part number to be able to figure out what belt you need.

Almost always you have a blockage somewhere. It is not always easy to get to each and every nook and cranny of the suction passageways.
Typically some piece is blocking, and that means reduced air flow, which means overheated motor... Do not run for long with this blockage.
Think in terms of air flow, your answer will likely be there.

Cheers,
Doc

Sure, take the machine apart. Cut off the bad part of wire. Strip insulation to same as what's inside. Remove old original & wire in the new.

One of two conditions: The Charger is not functioning or Battery has become a dud.

You didnt specify the model number, so I'll limit my answer to most common.

On most upright vacs, you disconnect the hose running to the floor pickup and attach the crevice tool (or whatever else you have) to the end of this hose. You then continue cleaning with the hose end atrachment.

I would imaging the Dirt Devil Edge Wedge is similar.

It sounds like there is a clog in the hose itself if you have no suction from the end. If it is bagless remove the canister from the machine or if it is a bagged machine remove the bag. If you have a shop vac attach the hose from the shop vac to the end of the hose of the dirt devil and try to suck the obstruction out that way. Sometimes it is possible to remove the clog this way. You can tell if you have suction from the debris port to the bag or the canister. If not you may need to use a snake or coat hanger to pull the clog through.
