I cannot find my owner sheet and need to change the belt in my upright oreck


THERE IS A SINGLE SCREW ON THE SIDE OF THE VAC KNOWN AS THE 'BELT DOOR'.

LAY VAC ON IT'S RIGHT SIDE, SO THE BELT DOOR IS STICKING STRAIGHT UP IN THE AIR. REMOVE DOOR AND BELT DOOR. CUT OLD BELT IF IT IS NOT BROKEN. TUCK NEW BELT UNDER BRUHROLL PULLEY FIRST THEN STRECH OVER MOTOR SHAFT.

DO NOT REPLACE BELT BY REMOVING BASEPLATE. 1) THE MOTOR IS NOT STABLE ENOUGH FOR THE TIGHT BELTS WITHOUT THE SUPPORT OF THE MOTOR 2) REPLACING BASEPLATE IMPOPERLY MAKES VACUUMING DIFFICULT. ">

My Kirby is not engaging the belt after it was put back on. I took it off to clean brushes and did everything according to the video but the belt will still not engage and green light does not come on.


The belt is not on the motor shaft. Remove the head from the motor unit. With the belt centered on the brushroll, turn the belt lifter a full 3/4 turn counterclockwise to stretch the belt up onto the belt lifter finger. ( Look through the back to be sure the belt is streched into a loop over the finger.) Plce the head back on the motor unit and latch it in place, then turn the belt lifter fully clockwise to drop the belt onto the motor shaft. Be sure the brushroll is correctly installed in the head. Setting # 1 should face the floor.

The brush on the bottom of the vacuum won't turn when in position to vacuum. I have cleaned the brush, there is nothing tangled around it.


Sounds like the belt is broke, when you remove the brush, be sure that all teeth are still on the belt and that it is not streched. Typically every major retailer will sell these belts usually 2 to a pack and under $10

Belt installation


You will have to slip the belt over the motor shaft and strech it down to the brush roll that should be loosened from the bearing rest, slip it over the brush and strech brush back into position.

Burning rubber smell when turned on. checked the belt-is ok.


Take the bottom off as if to change the belt and remove the brush assembly from the VAC. Take the ends off the roller and clean out the string and hair and whatever is wrapped around the end bushings and reinstall. Should free-up the roller Brush and stop the resistance on the belt to motor shaft. Or your belt is streched out and should be replaced, they don't always have to Break to be bad.

The bar brush does not spin. I opened the vacuum head and the drive belt to the bar brush is loose. I don't see how you remove the slack from the belt.


you have to have it in the carpet setting in order to put pressure on the v-belt. there is no way to tighten up the v-belt, but i would try to replace the big flat belt. if you haven't changed this belt in over 6 months, i would change it. ( on average belts need to be changed every 6-8 months). the reason is that the belt streches over time and doesn't have enough tention to ingage the v-belt in order for the brush to work. hope this helps
