That suggests that there was a bad/loose connection in the cord that couldn't carry the needed current. It heated up and burned its way through the wire. Replace the cord, or if it was hot near the plug, cut it back and add a new plug, available at most hardware stores.

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.

The bottom plate covers the brushroll, the top cover must be removed to gain access th where the belt goes around the motor shaft. There are catches on each side that must be flexed out to allow the top cover to come off.
