BISSELL PowerForce Bagless vacuum - brush not turning

My PowerForce Bagless vacuum brush is not rotating. What should I check?

ANSWER:  To get your machine functioning properly, please remove the access plate from the bottom of the machine. Lift tab 1 and release the three latches in order 2-4 as marked. Lift the Brush Cover off. Grasp the Rotating Floor Brush at both ends and lift. Clean strings, hair and other debris from Rotating Floor Brush, paying particular attention to brush ends. Clean strings, hair and other debris from Motor Pulley and Drive Belt areas.

Check the belt to ensure it is not broken.
