How can I fix the beater bar on my Kenmore upright vacuum cleaner that turns hard?

I have a Kenmore upright vacuum cleaner model 116.35912401. The beater bar does not turn. I have taken it out and it turns a little hard by hand. I tried to remove the motor on this direct drive unit and the two bolts turn all the way through. How can I fix it?
