Your filter is probably restricted and is not allowing enough air to pass through. Filters should be cleaned frequently (some after each use) and replaced about once a year for most models.

The motor protection sensor can be triggered by an obstruction or something restricting the brush roll from turning freely. Make sure it can spin freely. If there is hair, dust or debris in the end caps of the brushroll it can restrict it from turning freely.

Your Vacuum is from the Elite series, without your model number I can't be specific but to change the belt on most of them you need to remove the top cover by releasing two tabs underneath to allow the cover to flex so you can remove it. Stick a screwdriver in to move the cover out enough to be released. Remove the belt from the motor shaft, remove and clean or replace the brushroll. Put the new belt around the brush roll and insert it back into the vacuum. You need to stretch the belt enough to get it over the motor shaft. It’s difficult with a new belt because it will be so tight. I insert a big screwdriver through the belt and then put the end of the screwdriver on the motor shaft as a fulcrum to use screwdriver to stretch the belt far enough to go on the motor sxhaft.

Your collection canister may not be positioned tight enough in its place ment site. Tip machine back using foot pedal (as if you were going tio start using machine to clean) Insert collection canister (bottom container, then insert top canister with solution. The two canisters must be flush with machine side seams and must sit in position tightly. This is sometimes very tricky and may take a little elbow grease to make it click into place. Hope this helps

Check for the filter in place and it also requires a filter lid for proper suction or it will not work

I should recommend you type your make and model into the search engine of your computer, and you should have a bunch of dealers try to help you.
Ask them about a repair manual.
God bless your efforts.
