The brush is activated by the suction of the vacuum. If it stops spinning, that means that either there is a broken part inside housing that surrounds the brush, thereby lessening the power of the suction to spin the brush, OR there is a lot of debris, usually hair, trapped and tangled around the brush. That can cause a troubling amount of friction and cause it to stop spinning. Either way, you will need an Allen wrench set to open up the trigger head. I found this video on youtube which details how to do that. It's not my video, but it is helpful. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FwNDO3pUxzM

Odds are it's overheating and can't breathe. Check for clogs in the wands (they are very thin in diameter). They can also clog in the lower hose and/or the long hose you use for attachments. If all that is clear your filter could be clogged. But it definitely sounds like it's overheating.

If you are having battery issues you'll either need to replace the battery or the charger. If it is still under warranty contact dyson and they will walk you thru how to replace the parts you need. The batteries on these in my experience go bad fairly often. I throw quite a few dyson rechargeables away per month where I work.

Most of the time when I run into this problem it means there is a malfunction in the actual unit itself. More than likely you will need to replace it.

The high pile is stopping the brush roll from spinning. The V6 is a handy tool, but it’s not the right one for thick pile rugs

Check for clogs or broken belt(s).
Some model are more cost-effective to replace the entire unit than have it repaired.
