Chrispurs1 solution is evidently aimed at you buying service manuals from him. A good capitalistic effort, but not exactly most appropriate on a community-user web site.

How to put new belt on dc7i brush


The dc7 does not use a belt, it uses a clutch. Non-US models may differ but I have never seen a Dyson vacuum that uses a belt for the brush.

How do I change a belt in a Riccar vacuum


Remove the screws holding the bottom plate on. Remove bottom plate. If it's an 8955 or model with clutch to shut off the brush roll remove the rod that goes from the lever to the clutch. Look closely how the rod and brush roll are positioned in the vacuum so you can reinstall it the same way. Remove the brush roll and install the new belt and then put back together as it was.

How to remove clutch on dyson dc07


This service is hard to explain. Try googling it so you watch a video of how it is done. You can purchase belts and rebuild the clutch with the new belts or you can purchase a new clutch with belts already installed

Sent away 2new belts for dyson dco4 hoover after the one i replaced snapped .after awhile i emailed the firm who assured me were the correct size+ number,after a fight i got the belt onit was on 4or 5...


These are a difficult set of belts to replace. If you don't have everything just right when you reassemble the clutch or if there are any restrictions in the brush roll it will not work properly. It's best to test the clutch assembly in both positions after installing the new belts to make sure you did it correctly before putting it back in the vacuum.

I have a Dyson DC07 and it has lost suction. I have checked the belt, cleaned the circular filter and emptied the dirt chamber. The hose still has plenty of suction but I can't use the hose the vacuum...


Here are some things you can check.First you need to see if the problem is with the suction or agitation.If the suction on the hose for using the attachments is low you either need new filters a new cyclone(they are not cleanable) or it is clogged.To check for a clogg remove the cyclone and turn on the vacuum cleaner.you can put your hand over the suction side of the handle tub and feel if it has suction there.Reinstall the cyclone and again check the hose.If it is the same you don't likley have a suction problem you have an agitation problem.The 2 belts on the DC07 are part of the clutch and when they are strectched to a certain point (3-5years) the clutch needs to be replaced.you can check the clutch by turning on the vacuum cleaner and applying slight pressure downward on the front of the vacuum head.If the vacuum makes a loud ratcheting noise or you can stop the brush from turning the problem is most likely the clutch.One last thing is to make sure the bottom plate is on correctly I often see a misaligned bottom plate and the brush dosen't hit the carpet so it dosen't pick up.  www.sewvac.com

8955 Upright Vacuum: How to change belt?...


Be sure to unplug your vacuum from the electrical outlet before proceeding!

-Turn your vacuum upside down so that the handle is resting on the floor and nozzle portion is resting on a work bench.
-Remove the 2 phillips screws from the metal bottom plate and set the bottom plate aside.
-Look at the right side of the brush roll. You will see a bent metal rod that attaches to the brush roll end cap. This is the clutch rod that allows your brush roll to spin or not depending on the position of the carpet/floor switch on the top of the nozzle. Pull this rod out of the brush roll clutch only. Leave the switch end of the rod where it is and just let the rod rest there.
-Pull the brush roll and old belt out and dispose of the old belt.
To install a new belt; put the new belt on the motor shaft first, next put the other end of the belt over the end of the brush roll and stretch belt and brush roll back in to place. Notice that on the brush roll end cap opposite of where the clutch rod goes, there is a metal piece with a slot cut into it. Be sure that this slot mates with the plastic stop in the nozzle so that the end cap cannot move.
Snap the clutch rod back in place and rotate the brush roll by hand to make sure the belt is not pinched.
Replace the bottom plate.

Makes a ratchetting noise due to hair caught in brush; cleaned the brush and replaced the brush cover but still makes noise. what is the problem?


You have to take it to a vacuum shop and have a new clutch put in. The DC-7 and DC-14 have a clutch that needs replacing usually every year to year and a half.
