Having problems with your Bissell 3920 Bagless Upright Vacuum ?
Brush will not spin any longer
\015 I believe this is due to the height adjustment for the vaccum cleaner no longer functioning properly. This vaccum cleaner is 7 months old and not having a poroperly working vaccum cleaner is becoming a major problem, having a 2 year old and a 4 month old puppy. If this cannot be remedied me and my wife will never buy a bissell product again.\015
Even though the belt may look okay it can still be stretched. If the belt is stretched then it will not turn against the resistance of the carpet. I would try changing the belt. You can get the belt for this model here:
If the brush won't spin at all, it's either the drive belt or the roller beater brush is clogged. Pet hair can quickly clog a vacuum. Turn the unit over and see if the brush will rotate by hand. If yes, it's probably the belt. Also look for debris and clear as much out as possible. You may have to remove the bottom plate and clean the bottom of the unit out. If you do have to go that far, it would be best to replace the drive belt and thoroughly clean the vacuum.

My Rainbow SE vacuum was working fine until I ran over the edge of a rug and it went in to the nozzle. I immediately switched the vacuum off and proceeded to move the rug. When I tried to turn the Rainbow back on the brush was no longer spinning. I've tried the reset button and checking the nozzle for any debris, there are none. The brush just won't spin.

Hoover WindTunnel S3765. The motor spins and the belt turns when I turn the brushes on, and the brushes will spin. The problem is that when I do this on carpet, the brushes stop spinning. As soon as I pull the "head" off the carpet, the brushes spin again. It's almost as if the vacuum suction is too great. I took the head apart and watched the motor turn the metal spindle that the belt rests on, and the belt turns as well.
The belt is stretched and needs replacement.(Belt # 38528036) . The brush is not turning against resistance. ... Hoover Vacuums
My floor brush stopped spinning, I cleaned everything out as per your directions in other posts and following the instructions in the manual. Now the floor brush wobbles and has a hard time spinning when upright. Looking at the end of the brush, opposite the drive belt, the bearing-type end that the brush spins on appears to be off-centered. Is there an easy way to fix this???
