Having problems with your Kenmore 25512/ 25513 Progressive Canister Vacuum ?

My vacuum is a Kenmore Special Edition with a Power-Mate 12.0 AMPS wand. I ran over the edge of fringed edge of my living room carpet and immediately turned off the vacuum. Although I have removed the fringe pieces from the wand head and I have pushed the overload protector reset button on the wand, the wand brush will not turn. Help- it's the Thanksgiving weekend and guests are coming soon! Thank you.
