its very easy to fix and very common.
unplug the vacuum.<-- (very important part) 1.unscrew all the screws on the bottom part and lift the cover off. (the cover over the brushes) 2. you will then be able pick all the hair and junk out that gets tangled in brushes. 2a. Avoid it if you can, but you may have to take the brush thing off entirely to untangle it properly. if you have to do this, then pay attention how the brush piece fits in with the rubber belt, because you will have to put it back the same way. 3. after you've picked all the hair out, try to turn the brush with your hand to see if it turns like it should. if it doesn't.. you didn't clear all the tangles out or you didn't put it back together properly and so take it out and try again. 4. If it seems clear of debris.. replace the cover.. screw back the screws and test it out. Good Luck
