Kirby Sentria vacuum questions

I bought a $200 used Sentria, model G10D from a highly rated seller on Ebay. Vac arrived and after watching many youtube videos, managed to get it set up. The Belt indicator light turns green and i flip it and see the brush spinning smoothly. But when i engage the brush hieght the light goes off. Do i just need a new belt?

ALso when the vacuum arrived there was a bolt of some sort sitting in the box along with a very big light that wouldn't fit a Kirby so the bolt may not even be a Kirby part but i just want to make sure. Its about 4-5 inches long. Vacuum repair guy said it might be for the handle lock but the handle locks.
Thanks for any help

The vacuum cleaner that polishes, steam cleans, spray paints and even vacuums. Leave it to Kirby.
That could be indicative of a slipping belt.
I did not find that pin in any of the pictorials or parts lists.
