Answers :

My mach 5 has lost suction and the brushed are spinning
The revving/burning is because the belt is burning off and the power head motor is running without load...
Flip the carpet power head upside down on the rug and look for visible screws and screwdriver release slots on the bottom plate of the head.
When you remove the burned belt determine the cause. Will the brush roll freely or is it jammed with hair and fiber?. Clean the burned rubber from the motor shaft before replacing the broken belt, available at a vac specialty shop.
