Raise the height adjustment to it's highest setting.Turn the belt lifter knob on the brushead counterclockwise till it stops.Remove the brushead,then turn the belt lifter clockwise till it stops,releasing the belt.Turn the brushead around to the back.You will see 2 latches holding the brush plate assembly on.Unlatch those,and remove the brushroll assembly.Remove the brushroll from the plate by bending the tabs at one end to release the brush.Remove the old belt,and slide the new one over the brushroll.If you remove the entire brushroll,install it with the screw heads facing the floor.The ends of the brush roll have different size caps,one end is larger than the other,and one is black,one is white.This is so the brush will only go in one way.
Re-install brushroll assembly,latch it down.Look thru the opening in the back,and turn the belt lifter till you see the hook pick up the belt.Install the entire brushead on the front of the vacuum,and lock it down,then turn the belt lifter to drop the belt onto the shaft.Lower the height adjustment,and you are ready to go.

My dirt devil ultra vision won't pick up anything and the brush does not turn, also smells like rubber is burning. What should I do? I checked to see if it was clogged and the belt is not broken.


Sounds to me like the belt has gone or at least stretched so it is slipping on the spindle, take the brush out and check for hair or anything wound round where the belt grips...don't know this particular vac but usually belts are not too difficult to change. Get a new belt from your hardware shop

How to change the belt on a Eureka powerline limited edition vacuum cleaner.


The belt is directly connected to the brush roller. Remove the brush roller cover. Pull out the brush roller. Remove all carpet strings. Change the belt.

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.

How do I change the belt on my Kirby G 2000 Limited Edition?


Lift the head two pedal clicks off the carpet.
Lift the headlight and you will find a silver thumb dial to remove the carpet head. At the front of the head there is a square dial which you must rotate to release the belt if not broken. Rotate the square dial , then release the silver thumb dial under the light housing and the head will detach.
Flip it upside down to expose the brush and open the grate covering the brush. Note on either end there are colored leveling blocks for the brush. Reinstall with same colors showing.
Clean any hair and thread from the brush roll and insert new genuine belt. reinstall in opposite order, Be sure to turn the square dial backward to align the belt in a twist pattern before reinstalling the head onto the vac.Then lower onto carpet with pedal.

I have a Eureka Bravo! 7.0 vaccum cleaner, how do I change the belt


Turn the vac over so the brush is facing up.. There is a cover plate that surrounds the brush.. Take the screws out and remove the cover plate.. Pull up on the side of the brush that the belt is on.. Replace the belt.. The belt goes around the metal shaft and the brush.. Push the brush back in place.. It might be a bit tough going in because the belt causes some tension.. Put the cover plate and screws back in..

Good luck ! Please don’t forget to rate well ;o)

Installing a belt


1. Unplug the vacuum
2. Take the bottom cover over the brush off by removing the 3 screws
3. Switch the brush roll control lever to bare floor
4. Take the roller brush out
5. Put the belt around the small pulley from the motor
6. As you are putting the roller brush back in put the belt around the space on the roller brush - center the belt on that space - THE BELT WILL NOT BE TIGHT BUT THAT'S NORMAL
7. Reinstall the bottom cover with the 3 screws

THE BELT DOES NOT GO AROUND THE SILVER PULLEY CONNECTED TO THE BRUSH ROLL CONTROL LEVER

Brush won't turn

Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. Without knowing the brand name and model #, the reason that your brush is not turning might be you may have a broken belt (always use genuine belts from the brand name manufacturer) and it needs changing, or the bearings in the brushroll are froze up and it would need new bearings or a genuine replacement brushroll. The belt change should be done every 4 to 6 months for the best cleaning, and to store the extra belts in a Ziploc bag in the refrigerator. The next time you request a question, please have a brand name and model # so I can give you more accurate information.

Thanks, Don the Vac Man

Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure.
There are 2 types of Turbo Brushes, the electric type driven by a power head or power nozzle most likely used on a canister type vacuum or a central vacuum driven by electricity and there is an air driven power head. In either case the belt should be riding on the brushroll pulley on the end or if it is an air driven power head, sometimes the pulley section is in the middle, and the other end would run off the motor pulley / shaft. If you have a flat belt it is suggested that you change the belt every 4 to 6 months, if you have a geared belt, suggested change would be one year or so. I am not sure on the Brand of turbo brush you have, but you can refer to your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or the yellow pages, or contact the manufacturer for a phone # or website address, some times if you have a air driven turbo power brush it may be cost efficient to replace the brush instead of repairing the turbo brush. Just a suggestion.
Example: www.turbobrush.com – this may or may not be the website address not knowing the brand name.
