Belt keeps breaking on dirt devil 85335

I have put three belts on my dirt devil 85335 in the last 15 minutes. They work for a minute or two then breaking. The bar you fit the belt over is getting extremely hot. Is it a problem with the motor?

Dirt Devil easy lite vacuum makes pop or a thunk and then the suction is bad the clog lite does not come on I know it works


Hi there! Sounds like that noise may have been your belt popping or breaking. Try checking the belt on the vacuum. If it has broken, replace with a Dirt Devil style 15 belt. Below is a link where you may go to purchase the belt if needed. Thanks!

Why is the new belt on my dirt devil featherlite repeatedly slipping off? Everything else on it works fine and the b elt is the correct size.


Hello! There is no other part that goes on the motor shaft after the belt is put on. The tension of the belt keeps the belt from slipping off. If you have a brand new belt that keeps slipping off you may not have the correct belt for the vacuum. Be sure you replace with a genuine Dirt Devil belt and the specified belt style for your particular unit. Hope this helps! If you still need assistance feel free to reach out to us here on Fixya, Facebook.com/dirtdevil, or Twitter @DirtDevil.

Belt broke how do i chane this


Lay it down on its side, unscrew the cover over the brushes (don't lose them). You may have to pull the brushes out depending where the belt goes. Slip the belt on where it goes and put everything back together. The roller may be a little hard to put back in because of the new belt being tight but it will go on with a litte pushing. Good luck. Mine breaks all the time so I have it down to an art on mine. Just takes a few minutes.

It sounds like the belt is too worn and loose to stay on. Buy a new belt specified for that model of vacuum and install. Ensure that there is only a slight amount of give in the belt when you press the middle.

Belt keeps coming off


I believe there is something wrong with the roller, could be the barrings or the end caps are warped. Try this, take the roller out and with each hand on each end hold the roller and try to spin the roller with your thumb. If it does not spin freely the problem is the roller.
