Hello Sara
if its under warranty, call iRobot, they will probably replace the cleaning head.
If not, you'll need to open and clean the gear box.
there are few manuals with images on how to do that here is one

Have fun and enjoy your Roomba

I was vacuuming my room and all of a sudden I hear this loud noise, then notice the roller brush isn't spinning.

I've cleaned the brush before and it would roll around with little effort, but this time I couldn't move it at all.
