Answers :

The belt may be broken. Consult the user manual or locate on the sole plate or front hood when getting to the sole plate. Usually it involves a few cross head screws on the base of the vacuum cleaner where the roller beater bar is. Remove that and check the belt. If its broken, carefully replace it with a new one and see if that works once everything else has been put back.
