Oreck vacuum is smoking and the roller is not turning. vacuum is turning on and inflating well.


Sounds like the roller is jammed up. The motor keeps driving the belt, but for some reason the belt cant drive the roller. The smoke is coming from the belt, Clean the junk out from the roller.

How to change belt on eureka whirlwind; what tool do I need


You will first need to remove the hood to gain access to the belt and brush roller. Turn the machine upside down, place the handle on the floor and the base on a counter. You will find several screws that hold on the hood, remove them. Turn the machine back to the upright position and remove the hood. On the right hand side,if your looking the front you will find where the belt goes. At the back you will find a silver shaft sticking out, put the new belt on there first. Then put the brush roller through the belt so it is in the carved out section of the brush roller. Then grab the brush roller by each end and stretch the belt till the brush roller fits back into the base. Turn the brush roller 3 compleat turns backwards and 3 forward to seat the belt in the proper position.
Then put back on the hood.

When machine is running the brush does not turn


You need a new belt. In order to change it, turn the machine compleatly upside down and place the head on a counter, handle on the floor.
There is a L shaped base plate to remove that has 5 screws in. Once the base plate is off, you see the brush roller and a silver shaft directly back from where the belt would ride. Remove the brush roller, place the new belt, Dirt Devil Style 5 ( see link below ) on to the shaft. Then insert the brush roller, so the belt is on the raised carved out section of the brush roller. Grab the brush roller at each end and stretch it till you are able to put the brush roller back into the base. Turn the brush roller backwards 3 compleat turns and the same forward to seat the belt.
Replace the base plate and you're done.

Model 3590 roller not turning


There is a small rubber belt that connects to motor and the roller. It is common that this belt will break or wear and needs replacement. However, you must check the roller to see if it turns (spins ) freely. If it is stiff, then a new belt will be ruined in minutes. You must replace or clean the bearings at the ends of the roller (sometimes easy-sometimes hard). This roller must turn easy so the belt can do its job.
Replacement parts are easily available. I bought a roller with new bearings for a hoover about 4 months back----cost $13. and af course a new belt for $2.20. Goodluck< MAcgivor

Roller does not turn; I was vacuuming a rug and a string got stuck in roller-took it off but now the roller will not turn. suction is fine.


The roller drive belt may be stripped, worn partway through where it goes around the motor shaft, thrown off the motor shaft, or broken. Take the bottom plate off the carpet sweeper and have a look.

If the belt was damaged when the roller brush got stuck, then you get to replace it. On most of these, the easiest way is to put the new belt around the roller pulley, reinstall the roller, stretch the belt around the end of the motor shaft, then turn the motor by hand while pushing the belt on. If the motor also has a pulley on it, you may have to remove the motor screws to get enough slack on the belt, then pull the motor into place and put the screws back in.

How do you install the belt on the kirby vacuum?


Step 1: 
UNPLUG YOUR KIRBY VACUUM CLEANER. Before you go any further, take your time with this belt change. It's not that difficult, just a little different than most other vacuums. These belts are very easy to find on the internet. kirby-oldstyle1.jpg Step 2: 
You should be facing the front of your Kirby vacuum. The height adjustment lever will be on your right. Push the lever all the way down. Lift the light hood with your left hand. Turn theKirby vacuum belt lifter counter-clockwise with your right hand. Unlock the accessory lock. The accessory lock is located under the light hood. Move the lock to the left to disengage it. Remove the front of the vacuum cleaner.
kirby-oldstyle2.jpg kirby-oldstyle2a.jpg Step 3: 
Turn the vacuum belt lifter all the way clockwise until the belt drops down. Unlock the roller plate by releasing the two latches on the rear. Pull the roller plate up slightly and then off. kirby-oldstyle3.jpg kirby-oldstyle3a.jpg  
Step 4: 
Bend one end of the roller bracket just enough to remove the roller. Remove this end of the roller. If you need to replace the roller take it all the way out. Remove any carpet fiber, string, or hair from the roller with a scissor.

kirby-oldstyle4.jpg kirby-oldstyle4a.jpg Step 5:
After you have removed the old belt, slide the new one back on the middle of the roller. If you're Kirby vacuum cleaner has a belt indicator light, the roller will have a magnet built onto one end of it. It's very important to install to install a roller with a magnet on the same side as the indicator light. The roller actually will only fit into the roller plate one way.
kirby-oldstyle4.jpg Step 6: 
Place the roller back in the roller bracket. Place the roller bracket back and lock it into place with the 2 latches. Rotate the vacuum cleaner belt lifter counter-clockwise. You should feel the the belt catch. Look inside to make sure the belt is being stretched onto the vacuum belt lifter. Reassemble the machine. After you have reassembled your Kirby, turn the belt lifter cockwise, releasing the vacuum belt onto the vacuum motor shaft. kirby-oldstyle2.jpg

I can't get the power brush belt on tight. Am I missing something?


I don't know what brand of vacuum you have, but the belts on most vacuums should be changed approx. once a year. The belt can look fine, but is stretched and won't have the necessary tension to turn the roller. It is possible that the roller is in need of servicing. If the bearings in the roller are fouled with dirt and hair, they will not turn properly and a new belt will not solve your problem. Take the roller out of the machine and turn the end caps by hand. They should turn freely. Once you've determined that the roller is o.k., install a new belt, turn the roller by hand to make sure that nothing is jammed and then try the machine again.
