Re: How do I remove the housing cover on a westinghouse...
Remove clear snap-in lights lens.
Remove both lightbulbs.
Where the bulb sockets are there is a screw, remove them.
Then simply pull up on the housing from the rear where the wheels are and remove the top cover.

Hello, Put the vac on its side and remove the screws holding the cover plate on. This exposes the beater bar and belt on the side. Pull the beater bar out and take the belt off. Reverse this to put the belt back in place.
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..
You need to replace the belt that drives the brush on the underneath side of the vacuum. To do this, you need to flip the vacuum over and remove cover plate. There you will find the broken, or stretched out belt. Remove the brush and place the new belt on the chrome axle. Then put the brush on, rapping the new belt around the brush as you put the brush back in place.
make sure all your filters are clean,try to turn the brush roller by hand a few times if it turns real freely then the belt is broke.if it is reall hard to turn then you have something wrapped around the ends of the roller where the bearings are.your motor guard might be keeping it from running because it got too hot take the brush roller out and the belt let it cool down for 20 minutes then try it without the roller and belt.you should be able to take the ends of the roller off by just pulling out on them so you can remove what ever is in there
you have to take the headlight lenses off with a small screwdriver. then a philips screwdriver to take the 2 screws out. one each side. then remove the foil shields on each headlight . then snap loose the rear plastic clips on the cover and it will come right off. it took me an hour to find out how and 10 minutes or less to take it off. watch for the micro switch on the circuit board being worn out.it will stop the roller brush from turning.its a dollar part at any good electronics store ,but will have to be soldiered in or service might have a few from the westinghouse line .so will a broken belt which is a special grooved belt available from fantom at 18007987395..
