Hi there! Below are steps to replacing the belt on your vacuum. I have also included a link to the instruction manual which has illustrations if needed.
1.Lay cleaner flat and flip cleaner to expose nozzle base. Base should lay flat and face up. To remove nozzle guard, use Phillips screwdriver to remove the four (4) screws. Arrows show location of screws. 2.Lift nozzle guard off. 3.Slide belt off motor shaft. 4.Lift and remove brushroll. Dispose of old belt. 5.Place new belt in area of brushroll without bristles. 6.Slide belt onto motorshaft. 7.With new belt in place, pull and slide brushroll into nozzle making sure that the brushroll end caps are in the correct orientation. Rotate brushroll manually to make sure belt is properly aligned. 8.Reattach nozzle guard. 9.Secure by aligning the three (3) tabs in the base slots. Be sure to replace all four (4) screws.
Try plugging the hose that goes to brake booster and see if the noise stops couse it seems to me it has a leak..if not spray carb cleaner around the vacume hoses while it is running and where the leak is will couse the idle to go down..
NEVER USE THE HARD BRUSHES ON CARPET ! You can burn up your motor, break the drive belt,or strip the drive gears The black bristle brushes are for all carpet types.
The hard bristle brushes are made for hardwood and other smooth surfaces.
Find the current rating for the vacuum cleaner motor (on a plate somewhere on the machine). Is it somewhat less than the breaker rating in the panel? If so, then either the motor is overloading the breaker due to bad bearings or a shorted winding in the motor or the breaker is failing. Check the current draw of the running motor with a clamp-on ammeter (a friend with one or an electrician). It should be close to the rating on the plate. If in excess, then the motor needs to be repaired or replaced. The motor normally works harder when it is pulling full vacuum--it speeds up if the air flow is plugged.

HERE is the belt installation instruction. On your vacuum it is a bit different how the brush roll is installed but I am sure you will be able to figure this out. Adjust screws on the both ends of the brush roll to have bristles sticking out by about 1/8 of the inch. HERE is also a video on belt installation but the one with pictures is more in depth.
The sparks may be from the carbon brushes in the motor. Bagless vacuums do not filter dirt out as well as a bag does so dirt and grit gets sucked into the motor. Filters should be cleaned frequently and replaced at least once a year. If the filter gets clogged the motor can overheat. If you got two years out of a $39 vacuum you did well. Many people are lucky to get a year.
look under the vacume cleaner and take off the cover make, shure the belt is where it needs to be, you should have a setting on the vacume cleaner that gives you an addjustment for the carpet your on, raze it up.
