Re: seat belt light comes on at times on my wh holden...
Holy cow are you F-ED! Someone installed airbags and seat belts on your vacuum??? WOW! That must be one hell of a great machine and fast? Where did you buy it? I hope it wasn't too expensive if you are having problems with it. Please post a picture of it...I think it would be neat to see a vacuum with those kind of attachments!

Try removing and cleaning (or replacing) any filters. Check that there is nothing that is restricting the suction flow by making sure that hoses and inlet and outlet to the dust collection area (in your case the bag) are all clear. Basically for a vacuum cleaner to work at it's optimum, air needs to be drawn through the system and ejected with the least amount of restriction as possible. Obviously exhaust filters are needed so only clean air is ejected and pipes need to be clear to pick up the dirt and these do block over time. One of the biggest culprits for blocking are products like Shake 'n Vac as very fine particulates can pass through bags, that is why filters are used.
Check the main "kitchen roll" filter isn't clogged which is on the left hand side of the bag when the bin door is opened. There could be a clog, either behind the pick out metal grid below the filter roll, or the roll filter requires to be replaced. Can you add more info about the squeaking though? Is it a high pitched squeal all of the time or just intermittent and where it seems to be coming from - it could be excess air escaping from a pierced hose or a drive belt issue.
who told you that ? The guy who stole your air bag ? There is a big reward for air bags , they are very expensive. If your not sure what you are doing be very careful... you can set the air bag off by unpluging a connector or bumping a sensor. Check the fuse box for a missing or blown fuse. Alot of people unhook the air bag for many reasons such as if you have a slight accident in the front for instance and the two front air bags go off, it destroys the dash and steering wheel and can cost more than the car is worth to fix it.. Also there have been incedents where a child in a car seat has been injured by a bag that goes off.. Some have even been killed. Alot of cars have a switch to turn the air bags off.. Look for that too.
Almost certainly there is a blockage in the pipes leading to the bag compartment. This will cause the red light to come on, and it will lead to the motor cutting out from over-heating (as there's not enough air flow to cool it). To test that the light is working correctly, you can unplug the flexible hose from the top of the bag compartment then switch the machine on. The red light should be off, but will come on if you block the hole with your hand. If that test shows the light is working, you need to search for a blockage - which is most likely to be in the flexible hose, but can be in the rigid plastic tube or in the base of the machine (turn it over and look in the little trap-door). Clearing a blockage from the hose can be difficult - you are more likely to be successful if you can devise a way to pull it out rather than trying to push it (as with a broom handle, for example), because pushing may just compact it. If you need more help, just post a reply here. Good luck!
As far as picking up - I suspect that your belt is not properly installed. Watch the video manual HERE. in the first halve of the video there is an instruction how to properly instal nozzle.
You have to turn the bag about 30-40 degrees countercloclwise so plastic protrusions on the tube top adater (ones that keep bag attached to the tube) will allign with cuts in bag cardbort so you can pull the bag off the adapter. If you will take a look at the new bag - you will see what I am talking about.
Unfortunately, this probably means that your motor is burned out, since the headlight is on the same circuit as the motor.
You can take it in for service, but replacement of a motor in a twin energy will probably be more money than it's worth, and that's assuming that the motor is available.
It's still worth taking in though, most places will give you free estimates, and repair techs are the best people to ask about new vacuums if yours is unsalvageable.
