Having problems with your Kenmore Vacuums ?

Carpet brush not rotating

\015 Kenmore Porgressive model 116.22613203. Vacuum was working well on carpeting but had an odor of something burning. Found that there were threads and hair wrapped around the rotating brush. Cleared this by pulling on threads while hand rotating brush. On retrying, brush not rotating now.\015
