OK - so your brush roller is jammed. And yes, the belt is melting! Unplug the machine, remove the belt (you will need another new one anyway) then see if you can turn the roller by hand. If it turns freely without you doing anything else, then you may have put the new belt in incorrectly. However, you will probably find you can't turn it, or it's hard work (it should rotate freely). Remove the roller and check the bearings - there may well be something tangled up at one end of the roller. If you can get the roller rotating freely, all should be well.

We experienced the same thing. There are several filters on the vacuum cleaner that need to be cleaned out regularly (monthly in the user's guide). But the reason ours was shutting down is a protective circuit that cuts power for 30 minutes to avoid burning up a motor when there is a clog. Our clog was in the hose on the back of the cannister. One end of it can be lifted out of the bottom. The other end locks into place on the top (by rotating the ring on the end of it). It is the path for the hair and debris to the bagless cannister. We found that the top end of that hose was clogged with hair preventing anything from going into the cannister. So if your cannister is not filling, that's probably your problem. Easy to remove the hose and it's only about 18" long, so find something to stick through it and force out all the clogged debris and hair. Good luck!

Probably a hose clog. Check the hose on the back of the cannister. Most likely clogged where it attaches to allow debris into the cannister. If cannister is not filling up, that's a sure sign. To remove from top of back of cannister, just turn the ring on the end of the hose to release. Take it outside and push a long thin object through it to force out the clogged hair or debris. The motor is designed to shut off the vacuum cleaner for 30 minutes when this happens to avoid burning up your motor.
