Sears has a fantastic policy on products that they sell. Also have you checked to see it there is "stuff" caught on and in the beater bar? This can cause problems that overwork the sweeper and might cause it to shut off rather than burn out the motor.
There is a thermal reset button on your vaccum. It is on the rear of the unit, just below the attachments and next to the sticker with the serial numer etc on it. The vacuum is designed to turn itself of if too much heat gets built up to prevent it from "burning up."

I am not sure what type of vacuum, make or model # it is but if your motor is getting loud and it smells like it is burning, it could be 2 things, either you have a broken fan blade or your motor is on it’s last legs and is burning up and would be in need of a new fan and motor replacement. Please feel free t contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area.

Hello, I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. there are not too many sweeper that actually get under the sofa when most sofas go almost to the floor and some uprights go flat and some sweepers but if the height of the sweeper or vacuum exceed the height of the sofa underneath then either one or the other cannot clean under the sofa if the height exceeds the sofa height limit without leaning your sofa back or lifting it up to clean.

Unlock the sweeper brushes and take them out. on each end is a cup bearing and should be free of debris. then check around and under the belt and likely there is debris wrapped around it. the post is getting hot as your pulling too much of a load. though if it continues the motor may have a bad set of motor brushes (inside the motor) or bad wiring (kinda unlikely).
