Broken belt in Royal Pony power head

The belt to my brush roller has broken. The owner's manual is long gone, and I don't know what part to order. The belt is a narrow, 'geared' belt which is about 8 or 9" in circumference.

Roller won't turn,


Refer to your owner's manual on how to replace the belt. You have a broken belt if the vacuum is working fine but brush roll isn't turning. Either that or you have an option on your vacuum to turn the brush roll off???????

Have a bissell easy vac 3130-B and the brush on the bottom stopped turning i never looked before so i don really know if it turned in the first place


Behind the brush will be a metal thing that spins when the vacuum runs. That's what the belt loops over with the other end around the brush. You can sometimes find the belts a places like wal mart.

Roller not moving


The belt is stretched, worn or broken and therefore not turning the roller brush. You need to replace the belt. It's simple to do. Here is a link to the belts you need and the manual which has instructions:

The brush doesn't turn when the machine is running


Hello. Here are some possibilities:
1. Your belt is broken
2. your roller brush end bearings are bound by hair or string.
3. Or both!
Unplug the vacuum, flip it upside down, manually turn the roller, is there resistance? If not, the belt is broken, and the roller is okay.

Brushes won't turn and vacuum will not pick up sprayed cleaner


There's a Capt. Obvious fix to check before you go any farther. Like many vacuum cleaners, the brushes on the Bissell carpet cleaners, by design, only spin when the handle is not locked in the upright position, so be sure to plug it in, turn it on, and depress the foot pedal to lower the handle while watching the brushes one more time to be sure that the fix isn't that easy.

If the brushes still won't spin with the handle in the unlocked position, lift the handle back up into the locked position, power off and unplug the Bissell, and look down and see if either of the two belts that make the brushes spin are broken, as a broken belt, or a belt that's come off the track, is the next most likely problem. Both belts must be unbroken and in the right place for the roller brushes to spin.

These belts can be seen in the clear plastic pieces on either end of the roller brushes. If you're having trouble locating them, **with the Bissell unplugged so the brushes won't suddenly start spinning and hurt your hand**, try spinning the brushes with your fingers while watching for the belts. They're black, about the thickness of two quarters, and the bigger one of the two (on the left end of the roller brushes, as you face the front of the Bissell), is just big enough to fit around both roller brushes. The smaller belt, goes around the back roller brush on the right and to a smaller cog wheel behind it. If you see a broken belt, or a belt off the track, that's your problem.

Here's a video you can watch for free on Bissell's website that tells how to replace a belt. I'm sure the belts can be ordered online somewhere or found at some Bissell dealers or repair shops. Note, again, the two belts are different. If only one is broken, be sure to order the correct one.

If the belts are intact and in the right place, does the metal cog wheel behind the roller brush right turn when the Bissell is on and the handle is dropped? If not, then the motor that turns that cog wheel must be burned out.

7901-1 need to remove brush and replace small belt


Follow the manual instructions! You just pop a little tab on top of the vac above the wheel. It says someting about belt replacement.
Just be VERY careful...I made it harder than it was (not checking the manual) and pulled the roller off, breaking the plastic roller arm clamps. NO ONE carries them & they have to be ordered off the web. They are less than $3 but it will cost double that for shipping!!!!

My purple and red Dyson has become hard to push. Could a belt have broken?


It's simple to tell if a belt has broken. Just switch the machine on and have a look (look, don't feel) to see if the brush roller is rotating. If it is, then the belt is not broken.
Depending on how much use your machine has had, it's quite likely that the brushes on the brush roller are worn to the point where you need a new brush roller.  Most vacuum cleaners rely on rotation of the brush roller to pull them along, so if the bristles are too short this doesn't happen.
I hope this helps. Please remember to rate this response.

Broken belt


If you have the power head with the headlight, squeeze the sides of the upper part (almost like a superstructure,) where the headlight is located. It should lift off, allowing access to the screws to get the powerhead apart the rest of the way, and on most models it even has instructions on how to replace the belt molded into the plastic.

Bosch vacuum


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
