Belt may be broken !
1)Snap off the cover over the light.
2) Undo the two screws that are on each side of the pipe.
3) Flip head upside down and use a flat screw driver to gently pry the side tabs apart.
4) Use another flay screw driver to pry the bottom from the top. Instructions are molded into the under side of the light cover.
5) Pry up the bearings supporting at each end of the brush and out it comes. Install in reverse order. Have fun!

Main powerhead useless

Make sure that the vacuum hole in the head unit, or the wand, or the hose is not blocked. You may also want to check the bag to make sure that the inlet hole is not blocked. The only reason for spitting things back out is that the suction is not working properly...

Most times you have to replace the neck on the powerhead. Sometimes the switch in the handle of the hose will have a bad solder connection. But S300 is not a good model number, also the powerhead has its own number on the bottom, so couldn't look up parts for you.

Powerhead does not work and the light doesn't work. Canister does work

Some of these has a reset button to push on the powerhead. Check the plug at the end of the hose handle, is it pushed in, if you push on it and it goes further in, then the tube in the handle will have to be replaced, the holding tab broke off of the tube. Pull the wand off and look at the prongs to see if they are burnt. it they are, then that power cord will have to replace as well as the want.

You can call your manufacturer of the vaccuum cleaner and get some help. Or try unplugging it and turn it upside down and beging taking it apart. Take the brush out and then work your way to the motor. There maybe something lodged up in by the brush. Also check in the bag department and look in the hole where the bag is installed. You may have some luck there. Good luck.
