Question about Vacuums

Siemens/Bosch Vacuum cleaner

Hello,

Noticed that you have a similar problem to mine. In my case, the belt from the motor to the brush appears to be worn and I need to source a new belt. Not sure if the gears on the motor are also worn out but it is likely. Wondered how you found out about the part number. Mine is the Bosch rebadge of the original VAX model.

Would appreciate it if you could share any of the information you have or receive from the forums. Also, do you have a part list or a repair manual? Is this avaiable on the net? Look forward to hearing from you.

Cheers

I ordered both a motor and belt by calling the Bosch service number in the manual and installed them myself, but quickly they failed again, the nylon cogs burned off (wish I could just get the cog wheel, but they have to sell you the whole motor). I bought a second Vax branded machine, which worked okay at first but now it constantly needs to be emptied for suction. Now I'm hoping to swap the bottom of my new machine with the top of my Bosch which doesn't have the suction problem. Good luck. Susan

Trying to change the belt


things you will need Vacuum belt
  • Screwdriver
  1. Locate and purchase the correct belt for your Eureka vacuum cleaner from the local grocery or department store. Vacuum belts come in different sizes according to your model of vacuum. Check your owner's manual or the vacuum itself for your model number.

  2. Turn your vacuum cleaner over so that the bottom of the unit is facing you. Remove the cover plate from the bottom by undoing the screws that are holding it in place with a screwdriver.

  3. Locate the belt pulley rod near the back of the vacuum base coming out of the motor. With the vacuum cleaner base turned upside down and facing you, the motor and pulley rod should be up near the top of the base.

  4. Slide the vacuum brush roller out of the slots at the bottom of the vacuum base and remove the old belt from the brush roller and pulley rod. With the brush roller off of the unit, clean the brush by removing any strings or cords wrapped around the tube.

  5. Install the new belt by looping it over the belt pulley rod next to the motor and then looping around the end of the brush roller in the belt slot. Hold the brush roller and pull back on it to tighten the belt while you slide the roller back into the slots on the vacuum base.

  6. Replace the base cover plate by snapping it back into place and securing it with screws. Turn vacuum back upright and turn it on to test the belt and verify the unit is working

The roller brush will not turn. The belt is not


Hello,

Sometimes the belt can stretch cause the roller to not turn. Also make sure the roller brush is free of any debris.

Use this link to access your vacuum to change belt or clean the roller brush.

The brushes aren't spinning


The brushes are belt drive by a belt. The belt is probably broken. You can purchase a new belt at a local discount store and replace it. You won't find anything that looks like a pulley, it'll just be a bare round metal portion of the brush assembly that is located at one end. The motor end will look similar.

Main Brush Failure


first check if the brush motor is turning before you spend money on a new brush roller and belt. remove the belt by unscrewing the screws holding the brush cover ( the part touching the floor ) and slip the belt of the rotor. turn the vacuum on, and the brush on while the vacuum is in a reclined position. if the motor is not moving, you need a new motor.

check the belt, it might be stretched or broken
or carpet fibers and hairs may have clogged up the brushes to keep them from rotating
