Look at the top of the vacume by the floor level switch and remove the two screws...unlike most vacumes this one isnt changed underneath but rather on top of the machine....removed the screws and change the belt..its pretty self explanitory after that!

I did change the belt and that did help. I had debris coming out of the cleaner like others, the reason for this is that the hose where it connects to the vac was extremely clogged. I cleaned it out (you wouldn't beleive what was clogged in there) and now it works fine. I hope others read this and realize all they need to do is take the hose off and unclog it. It is difficult to get off the first time so keep trying. You need to squeeze the two clear side towards each other. I hope this helps others.

You can go here to download a new copy of your owner's manual: http://www.eureka.com/customer_service/owners_guide.jsp or you can just remove the two screws on the top of the roller brush cover housing and lift it off to access the roller brush/belt area.

    On the bottom is a plate you can remove,the roller can be taken out and remove the broken belt.hook the new belt on the motor,put the belt over the roller and stretch the roller in place and lock it.put the plate on.

How do I to change the belt on an eureka altima 12?


the belt is on the bottom right (looking at it from the front). the Eureka website does have the manual for download, http://www.eureka.com/service/manuals/80244.pdf

With the vacuum flattened (straightened) out, turn it over and remove the back roller cover, (2 screws) once off, the roller should just pop out on the opposite side (opposite from the belt). Don't forget to turn the roller to center the belt once you have it on.

I HAVE A EUREKA ALTIMA AND CANT CHANGE BELT


The hood will come off if you loosen two screws at the front on top of the hood by the brush bar bit that is slightly raised. Then there's a screw to the left hand side of the upright either below the hose or duster area. Once all screws are undone, the hood should pop off.
