Generic problem for all Vacuums
How on God's green earth

How on God's green earth do I open the Fantom 12 amp to fix the beater brush belt?
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. There are probably 2 ways to get @ the belt, usually there are screws, clips or levers on the bottom side of the bottom plate and once they are removed you should be able to get @ the belt, if not then the top cover should come off and then you should be able to get @ the belt. At this point you should be able to get @ the belt to change it. #2. you can always refer to your Fantom owner’s manual for additional information. So if you need further assistance, please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or in the yellow pages, or contact the factory phone number or website to further assist you with your questions.

Tips for a great answer:
bearings in the brushroll might be siezing. If you start snapping belts, change the brushroll. the roller brush that most likely needs to be cleaned,clean the hair from the brush and under the belt and make sure the bar is positioned in the vacuum properly and turns easily. Your problem could be the clutch unit what has probably happened is either the clutch plates are warn, or the 3 balls in the clutch have warn a large grove in there fixing plate or the plastic hub that the brush roller to clutch belts runs on has melted this hub melting is the most common of all clutch faults.
There are no spares available for repairing the clutch other than the motor to clutch belt & the clutch to brush belt. Here is a diagram to help you
