Either the belt is not tracking straight, the brush roll is bad(check the ends to make sure they turn easily), or the base has warped and the brush roll is not sitting in the proper spot.

    I am having the same problem, and the belt doesn't actually break so I don't know what the problem is.

Burning smell


Something may be keeping the brush roll from spinning freely which may have caused the belt to break.

Even if the flat belt is broken and the v belt loose shouldn't the shafts or something be spinning when I flip it over and turn it on? Nothing is spinning on mine


There is a tensioner pulley that drops when you drop the handle down. It squeezes the belt against the roller making it spin. This part often breaks as well. Replace the flat belt, and check to make sure the v belts edges aren't rounded. If they are and the edges are not crisp replace that belt as well. DO NOT put the v belt under the tensioner pulley. It will break should you do so. I'll include a link to the correct part # for that flat belt.

The belt keeps coming off


A belt will come off for several reasons.:

Wrong size or stretched... should be changed ever 3-6 months.

Misaligned pulley on brush or idler pulley on 2 belt unit

Misaligned motor.. this is rare

Put in a fresh matching genuine belt and keep a spare handy. Belts stretch and slip long before they break

Eureka 2961 BVZ no suction, burning smell


I have the same vacuum. The burning smell is letting you know that your belt is either broken or about to break. I have had mine for a year and have had to replace the belt 5 times. Now I have to replace the brush roller 'cause it broke under normal use. My next vacuum will be a Dyson Ball.

My Eureka Boss vacuum belt keeps breaking


I have been searching the machine for something which could be rubbing against the belt to cause it to fray and break as often as it does. So far, I haven't found anything. I have heard that the belts, called ribbon belts, are terrible! I find that the belts break faster when I use the hose. I haven't found a way to make a belt last longer.

Why does the belt keep breaking as soon as I turn on the vacuum?


Hi Have you got the correct belt? If its breaking then the brush end caps or something is clogged. If you can get into the floor head ensure you look at the actual brush roll to see if there is anything is clogged or trapped. Remove all matter of dust and see if that works.

Brush froze up and keeps breaking belts


I had the same problem but I found that I had replaced belt incorrectly. After placing one end of belt around pully, it has to be run behind the "belt disengager" which looks like a 1/2" wide metal tab just past pulley. After placing belt correctly I had no more belt, burning smell or brush problems.

I have the Hoover Windtunnel Bagless U5753 (purpleish one)


You have a broken belt. This is a very common problem. The belt is designed to break if something becomes caught in the brush roll. This is intended to protect the motor from becoming jammed and burning out. The belt is very easy to replace and your manual will explain how.
