No, do not remove the torx head screws for a belt change. If there are any screws that need to be removed for the belt change, they will be phillips head. What is model # of vac??

Need to replace belt in eureka envirovac model 4470


You must remove the screws that hold the top cover onto get to the belt. Remove top cover then remove brush roll to install new belt. Replace belt at least twice per year for proper cleaning.

How do you replace the belt? Can't find anyplace to open the bottom to replace belt.


You don't actually have to turn the vacuum over for this. The two screws you need are on top, above the brush roller. It is the top cover that comes off instead of the bottom on this vac. You'll see everything once you lift it off.

Eureka Fantom Thunder 12V/older model Need instructions on how to change belt and headlights.I could only find 1 screw on the bottom plate none on top plate. Thanks N J


there are two screws on the Fantom Thunder (It was not made by Eureka though) on the back of the unit just above the rear wheels. Remove these two screws and the top cover can be removed to get to the brushroll, belt and headlights. I believe the light bulbs in this unit are 12 Volt, not 110 volt.

My brush is no longer working on my bissell healthy home vac. when i try to turn it on it makes a high pitched squealing sound. I'm pretty sure it needs a new belt but my husband is having trouble getting...


Hi,
According to Bissel, they should be standard phillips screws. Nowever - things change.
This is a general guide from Bissel for belt change -
BELT CHANGE _ CLICK HERE

Check your model number on that site for exact details.

If the screws are Torx (star) or other security screws, tool bits are available from Screwfix -
SECURITY SCREW BITS
That fit standard loose-bit screwdrivers.

Hope that solves your problem.
Thank you.

Vac is supposed to have auto height adjustment but it doesn't


If the brush isn't working then its maybe because the drive belt is broken. Locate cross head screws on top of the hood of the Eureka vac (two at the front usually and one below the duster or at the left hand side if looking at the vacuum from the front) Once the screws are undone check to see the drive belt is intact. If its not then replace with a new one and check at the same time that the roller brush is properly put in. If the drive belt is ok then check the brush roll - something may have jammed it if it isnt the belt. Dont forget to rate please.

Looking to replace vac belt on eureka altima bagless upright


Hi Jim You should find the cross head screws on top of the hood - look below the duster and there should be a screw there, also another screw on the other side and two either side of the main floor head.

Eureka 4870 hose assembly replacement


Boy, it's been awhile since I took one of these hoses off, but I think at least one of those plastic hose guide things has to come off in order to remove the hose. Those screws that look like they cannot be removed are probably torx screws which need a T20 torx scredriver that you can get at any hardware store. That is the most common size torx screw that Eureka uses.

Here is a link to the owner's manual in case you need any diagrams for getting the clear tubes off:

Hope this helps. :-)
