SOURCE: vaccuum stopped running
Belt jumped off beater bar and jammed it! Disconnect belt, does imotor run. If yes, reconnect belt turning beater bar by hand to see if it is smooth. Carefully, reassemble and run it!

That metal rod is probably the motor shaft or pulley. On some of these, the open space between the shaft and top cover is very narrow. You just have to push thru th opening to around the shaft, then put it on the brush roll. Th belt will stretch enough to re-install the brush roll.

Just about any vac shop should have the belt. This belt is the same belt used in the upright vacs as well as the power nozzels. The new oem part number is 48359.

Actually I just answered a similar question on how to open the power nozzle on a Sears Kenmore. The Sears Kenmore is actually made by Panasonic, and the repair is identical to replace the belt. Here's my other repair solution that includes a link to the Panasonic instruction manual that will walk you right through this repair;
I will also explain how to access the roller brush below, and if you'd like to see diagrams of how to do it, you may visit the link below to the Panasonic owners manual. Start at page 46, then go back to page 40.
In order to access the roller brush on this model, here's what you need to do. Underneath of the headlight cover, there are two screws that need to removed first. In order to get to these screws, simply push on both sides of the headlight cover, and lift it straight up while pushing both sides. After the headlight cover has been removed, you'll be able to visibly see the two screws that need to be unscrewed (phillips head screw driver). Remove these two screws next.
After the screws have been removed, turn the power head upside. If you look at both the left and the right sides, you'll see a little indentation on each side. All you need to do is put a flat head screwdriver in these indentations, and pry up on both sides. This will remove the top housing. Once you have top housing removed, you'll see there's one more cover that goes over the roller brush. There are two tabs on both sides behind the roller brush. If you squeeze these two tabs, you can now remove the white colored housing that covers the brush, and have full access to the brush.
I hope that this helps you repair your belt. If you found this repair helpful, please be sure to rate it by clicking the thumbs up icons in the top right hand corner.

Thanks very much,
