What should I do? Answer: First, make sure the brush motor is turned on at the hose grip. Check that the handle is reclined. When the handle is locked in the upright position, the brush motor automatically shuts off. Make sure the brush is free of debris. Your vacuum has a feature that will turn it off automatically if an object is lodged in it. See if the brush and belt are intact. Remove the access plate on the foot of the vacuum. Remove the two screws, pull up on the front of the access plate, then pull up on each of the sections of access plate, as shown below.
