Question about Vacuums
I believe the overload protection came on when there was something caught in the filter? When I unplugged it and waited 30 secs the light came back on but when i tried the switch on the hose the light went out again???
Its not easy to get into the sweeper head. I would push a air hose in there and blow the head clean. You will need to find a compressor or your friendly local workshop manager could help you.

Central vacs have relays in them, some stand alone, others mount on a circuit board. A stuck relay causes this type of problem. At the unit disconnect the low voltage wires, plug in your unit, does it still come on, if it does then you have a bad relay. If it doesn't then you have a problem somewhere in your low voltage wiring. One of the outlets, the wires may be touching or there is a staple casuing a short.

Your belt is probably broken. Check your belt and make sure your brushroll has not seized. If both of those check out ok, (because the smartvac belt doesn't stretch,) the belt tensioner assembly may have gone bad.

It is a simple fix that you need. Your belt needs to be replaced. After a period of time, the belt stretches to the point where it is still strong enough to spin the brush when you have the machine upside down to look at it, but when you put the machine down on the carpet the belt is too weak to turn the brush against the resistance of the carpet.
Most Eureka belt changes are simple to do and the belts are inexpensive.

Yes, you need to replace the belt. You should actually change this belt every year. Here is a link to the belt you need and the manual which has instructions:
