Vax Mach 7 - the brush bar won't rotate but the belts are fine

\015 The brush bar no longer rotates. I changed the flat belt a few weeks ago (vax replacement part) as it had broken, and have now changed the v-belt as well, but there is insufficient tension on the v-belt to rotate the brush bar, although the tension pulley and shut-off pedal seems to be operating correctly.\012But clearly something isn't working correctly, just can't work out whether the groove in the brush bar or drive pulley might have worn.\015

My Dyson Animal has good suction and works fine for actually picking up dirt, but when I use the vacuum with the roller, I hear a grinding/rumbling noise. Its only when I use the vacuum with the brush rotating. It does not happen hen I shut the roller brush off. The belt is fine. I cannot figure out what is wrong as there are no clogs, debris, or foreign objects stuck in the brush or in the belt. The noise seems to be the only issue. The vacuum picks up fine. It just doesn't sound right a

My Bissell Model 3760-4 is not working properly. The belt has been replaced (and checked 3 times), but the brush bar does not move when the brush motor button is on. The little metal turning piece that turns the belt is turnable with one's finger when the belt is off, but when we put it all back together and turn on the vacuum, the brush bar does not go around and the burning belt smell returns. The portable part of the machine works properly. It's the brush bar. It has been cleared of hair, etc
