The belt is worn/stretched to the point that it cannot take the load on low level setting due to more resistance against the carpet and there is also no signifagant difference between the two belts except for expecting a longer belt life from the whisper belt. While it is apart make sure there is no hair or carpet strands in the rollers and around the belt pulleys
It sounds like you have bad carbon brushes on the motor. Get replacement brushes from a local vac shop, and take the unit apart. On each side of the motor their is a retangular piece of plastic with what looks like magnets in them. In most cases they are simply held by 2 screws. Replace these brushes and reasemble the unit. If the problem persists you have burned out the comutator on the motor and the whole thing must be replaced.
if im right on the top where you change the settings for your carpet there should be 2 screws take th e whole top cover off theres a plastic cover for the belt take that off and the rest should be self explanitory
My guess would be a slightly loose belt - tight enough to spin the roller on a hard floor, but loose enough to slip (then get hot and stink) when the roller is having to work against the pile of a carpet.
Worth buying and fitting a new belt without pausing to investigate further, simply because they're so cheap and you'll have to replace it sooner or later anyway.
