Roller not spinning - Vacuums


Answers :

Possible belt broken. If you smell an odor like burning rubber it could be the belt that turns the roller if not the belt could be broken already.Possible string or something else wrapped around roller. If you have animals in home they shed and the hair or fur gets wrapped around roller and it will stop the roller.
