To put on a kirby belt all you need to do is put on the belt on the brushroll, put the brushroll into the housing making sure the marks on the end of the brushroll are the same. Take the spin dial in the front and "hook" the belt till the dial reads off. Put the head back on the machine and spin the dial to "on".

Generic problem for all Vacuums
Kirby Sentra vacuum burning belts
posted by campoclan on May 02, 2008
Have had Kirby vacuum for a couple of years since I've had it I burn at least two belts in two months. I keep roller clean, what is the problem?
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. Some of the problems that people have is that they feel they have to have the vacuum head all the way to the floor and that makes the belt work that much harder. The key to the best cleaning is to raise the height adjustment all the way to the top and once it’s there then drop it down one notch or setting @ a time until you here the tone change. Then try it to see if the vacuum if picking up well if not drop it down one more notch and that should be the setting it is supposed to be for your type of carpet. And remember to use the genuine Kirby belts instead of the Kirby replacements, they will work better. And your suggestion that to keep the brushroll clean and free spinning on each end and also keep the bottom plate clean of dirt and grease because if there is a build up it will move slower and leave black marks on the carpet. I hope this will help and if not contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area. So if you need further assistance, please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or in the yellow pages, or contact the factory phone number or website to further assist you with your questions.
