My rollers stop every now and then too... vacuum cleaners need maintenance, hair, pet hair, dental floss, and other items can wrap themselves around the rollers edges - preventing them from rotating. Flip the vacuum cleaner over and check for stuff wrapped around the roller ends.
The roller is normally attached to a belt. unplug, open it up, and see if the belt is broken before anything else. If it is, you can get one at any big box store or hardware for a few dollars. If it is not broken, look and see if something is catching the rollers up and is stuck in there just preventing motion. You might be able to dislodge it and get them moving again.
