Answers :

You burned a flat spot in your belt - replace it.
Miller nailed it......the brush has a rubber drive belt that most likely broke from the friction....need new belt. You can acces the belt by taking off the brush guard with a few screws. Easy fix.

I cut all of the hair out of the bottom of the spin-brush on the Dyson Upright Animal Vacuum. Now I dont think I can get the brush back in there correctly. If I squeeze it in there (which it is a VERY tight fit...) then it wont spin. Any thoughts?

I was vacuuming my room and all of a sudden I hear this loud noise, then notice the roller brush isn't spinning. Thinking too much hair was caught I separated it from the rod and hose to clean it out, but noticed that the roller brush didn't move at all while I was cleaning it. I've cleaned the brush before and it would roll around with little effort, but this time I couldn't move it at all. After removing hair and string I put the vacuum back together and started it up, but the noise continued,
