The problem almost certainly is that the axle of the brush in your power bar has dirt/fluff in it that is preventing the belt from turning it so that the fuse in the power bar clicks off after 2 or 3 seconds. It is fairly easy to fix. All you will need is a Phillips screwdriver and about 15 minutes. Follow the following steps
1. With the power bar disconnected from the vacuum, turn it upside down and you will see two inset screws at the rear side of the base of the power bar. Unscrew these two screws using your Phillips screwdriver.
2. With the power bar in the same position unlatch the two plastic tabs at the rear of the power par. [It may be useful to flip up the metal bar that you see on the base to use as a handle] On each side of the base you will see an arrow saying insert screwdriver here to release. Insert a screwdriver and lever the plastic of the base slightly apart from the plastic of the side. When you have done this for both sides the base should lift off.
3. Now lift the brush including the two end pieces straight up. It should just slide up. You will need to unhook the drive belt from the brush as you lift it out.
4.Pull of each end piece and clean the dust, lint, hair off the end piece and from inside the end of the brush.
5.Once clean, reinstall the end pieces on the brush. Hook the belt back over the brush to its original position and slide the brush back into the power bar.
6. Reinstall the base by hooking the tabs from the front of the base into the small openings on the power bar.then push the base down until it clicks back into place and the tabs are back in their original position. Reinstall the two screws you removed earlier.
7. The power bar should now work. Good luck.

the same motor that turns the belt is sucking at the same time. your prob is just behinde the brush there is a pickup hole. tahe a wire coat hanger and shove it through unti you see it were the hose plugs in the back off the vac. ming did the same thing and i see these in the trash all the time. I clean the shoots and sell them on craigs list. if it was the reset you would not have any power at all

Try to re-install the handle. On occasion if the handle is not installed properly and secured tightly the unit may experience intermittent power.
