You may have to replace the filters, air maybe restricted going thru them. The main filter is part #73494, and the foam #74038. Also make sure the SLINGER/CYCLONE ASSY part #74068 isn't clogged up.

If the parts aren't glued in, they must be snapped in or fastened with screws. You say there are no screws - try unsnapping.
I think id try a coat hanger first with the help of air pressure if you have access or a second vacuum.
Pet hair is definitely an annoyance in these machines. I know from experience. I guess that is why the instructions generally say to vacuum first! I learned my lesson with the coat hanger/air/vacuum method. Who needs stupid instructions anyway!
I hope you get your machine unclogged.

Hi there, SmartAlec from NelsonVacuums.com.au here. What you are describing is a pretty common problem, it is normally caused by a blockage or a brocken belt, or if you are really unluck ..both. Take the base plate of the bottom of the vacuum (part that kind of covers the brush) and check your belt and air path. 9 times out of 10 this is where your problem will be. Clean the pathways and away you go.
Happy Vacuuming :)

SOURCE: WHEN WE USE THE
A clogged hose is the most likely problem. Disconnect hose at both ends and try dropping a coin through it. If clogged, use a broom handle to push clog back through.
If the hose isn't blocked, check the tank where the hose attaches. Just inside clogs often form. Clean if necessary.
Check the filter, and change if dirty.

Before you take out the filter, however, vacuum the outside and
around the filter encasement. After you remove the filter, you should
vacuum behind it, too, to catch any stray dust and particles.
Replace disposable filters with new ones."
