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

Vacuum seems to have lost some suction and is harder to push on carpet


Start by installing a new belt. Belts lose elasticity fairly quickly. And should be replaced at least twice per year. Belts lose elasticity even if the vacuum has never been used. It's possible for a brand new vacuum to actually have been assembled a year or two ago which means it may end a new belt before it was ever used for the first time,

Dear Expert, the vacuum is not working in normal mode but if i use pipe then it works. Any suggestions? thanks khangee


Hello,

So usually when an upright vacuum works well when using the attachment hose, but doesn't work well when vacuuming on the floor mode, this typically means that you have a belt problem. This is very easy to diagnosis. Turn the machine sideways so the brushes are facing you while the machine is plugged in. Be careful and make sure there's no hair, or clothing near the brushes, and turn the vacuum on. When you do this, are the bottom brushes spinning? If the brushes are spinning, with the vacuum running, put the vacuum brushes down on the carpet as if you were vacuuming, and listen to the brushes. Can you hear the brushes stop when you put the vacuum brushes on carpeting?

If your brushes are not spinning, or if you the brushes stop when you put the vacuum down on carpeting, this is a clear sign that you have either a stretched, or broken belt. Many people equate a broken or stretched belt to loss of suction because without the belt, the vacuum really can not pick up much at all off of the floor. When the vacuum doesn't pick up, many people assume the vacuum has lost suction.

Your roller brush may or may not also be bad. Installing a new belt properly will help you answer this question.

Please see the link below for the owners manual to a model that's similar to the model you posted this repair question under. The belt change will be identical. The belt change instructions starts on page 13 of the .pdf

What Model replacement belt do I need for the Eureka model 2961 BVZ?


Greetings,

According to the Eureka Part diagram for your particular model vacuum, your vacuum uses Eureka Style U Belts. Eureka makes actually 2 different styles of U belts.

The first style is the standard U belt, Eureka part number 54312. This belt is probably the one that came standard on your model. You may purchase this belt from the link below;
http://eurekaservice.stores.yahoo.net/uprightbelt.html

The other type of Style U belt that will fit your model is the Eureka Extended Life Style U Belt, Part 61120B. The Extended U belt is more durable, and lasts longer then the Eureka Standard U belt. You may purchase the Extended U belt here;
http://eurekaservice.stores.yahoo.net/exlifubel.html

Now, if you are quite sure how to change your belt, you may visit the link below to see the owners manual for your Eureka 2961BVZ that will give you step by step instructions on how to change the belt;

http://eureka.com/service/manuals/80244.pdf

I really hope that this was helpful to you in finding and fixing the belt for your Eureka. If you did find this helpful, please be kind and rate my repair solution as helpful by clicking the thumbs up icon in the lower right hand corner below. I really do appreciate it, thank you.

Feel free to request a repair clarification if you have any questions about the procedure of installing the belt on your Eureka, I'll be happy to help.

I need to replace the belt on my vacuum. I lost my manual.

Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. In order to change your belt I would need to know the brand name and the model # in order to give you the correct information to change your belt, so a little bit more information needed as to what you have and then I can direct you in the belt change. Normally there are screws in the bottom of the vacuum and once you remove the screws or clips you can either change it from the bottom or the top cover will lift off and then you can get @ the belt from the top.The average and recommended belt change for a flat belt is every 4 to 6 months and if you have a geared belt it is once a year for the best cleaning. 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.

Thanks, Don the Vac Man

I LOST MY MANUAL TO SEE HOW TO CHANGE MY BELT. TRYING TO FIND THE USERS MANUAL FOR MY ELECTROLUX 3500 SR

Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. The best way to get the owner’s manual is to contact the Electrolux factory and either download the owners manual from the website or call the customer service phone # and give them the model and serial # of the machine and they will send you out an owners manual for the product. Or you can contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area and they would assist you in changing your belt. Usually there are screws in the bottom of the vacuum and either the bottom will come off or the top cover will lift off and then you can change the belt. The average and recommended belt change for a flat belt is every 4 to 6 months and if you have a geared belt it is once a year for the best cleaning. 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.
