Sounds like it is on the way out this may be because
1, you need to clean the filter cos when its dirty it stop air from going around the motor
witch makes it get hot and overheat
2, also if you allow the bin to get to full this will also stop the motor from geting air to it
so a good clean on your filter and bin will allow air to the motor then no overheating should accur

the bagless containers of these vacuums do tend to hold a strong dust odor. the only way ive found to help eliminate it is with a product that i use called FreshWave odor neutralizing pearls. you never want to use fine dust carpet freshener or any product like that cause it will eventually burn up your motor. but if you are interested give me a call and i can ship you some of the freshwave. 703-724-1112

If the belt is hot or you smell it burning then chances are it has stretched a little and is slipping on either the motor shaft or beater bar shaft. If you are sure the beater bar is not restricted from turning then I would just replace it. Try this.. With the power cord disconnected, open the vac head to gain access to the beater brush and belt.. then remove the belt.. place the beater bar back into its holder and see if it easily turns by hand.. if it is free to turn..then plug the vac in and turn it on for a few seconds.. you will see and hear the motor come on but you should NOT smell anything burning at that time. If you do.. you may have another issue with the motor or power cord or both.. if you don't smell anything burning, then disconnect the power and just replace the belt.... Good luck.
The bottom doesn't come apart. you have to remove the top cover to get to any components. But if you have a burning smell, then it is probably ther motor and would have to be replaced. Motors cost anywhere from $70 to $90.
