If the red light is one the says "check brushroll" then you have to take it apart to find out what the problem is. It might be that the roll has too much stuff rapped around it so you have to take it out and clean. It could also be the rubber belt is not properly in place. Once you take the bottom off the belt should go on the far right side. Those are the only things i can think of. I have had mine for 3 years and have never seen a reset switch. Usually when my light comes on it is because there is a lot of hair rapped around my brush roll.

Brush spins & then trips & quits

Sounds like a clog to me. Check that the roller brush cap fittings (caps at either end of the brush roll) don't have thread in them as well as checking that the dust channel from the sole plate is completely clear.

Vacuum doesn't go into carpet mode

If the model number is 5892AVZ, either the brush roll is bad or the brush roll motor isn't coming on to drive the brush roll. There is a circuit breaker, make sure it didn't trip, reset it if it has.

Belt number is 74376, there should be screws on the bottom, take those out and the top comes off, or the top and bottom come apart. You will want to clean evrything so the brush roll will roll easily.

Turn vac over, take out 4 to 5 screws and the top cover will come off. The belt is a cogged belt #72393 and goes between the brush roll motor and the brush roll.

remove belt to brush roll and see if noise persists. if it stops, you probably need a brush roll. at least doing this will narrow down the fault area
