Yes, it should be notched to fit the "gears" on the roller.

How to replace a belt?


first of all take off front assembly. turn over front assembly and then undo clips on the bottom, then turn top knob on front of assembly which hold up the belt, and it will come free then you need to pop out either side of the brushes to take off old belt and re-install new and then turn know to uptake the belt and replace back on the main vacuum body.

Dog hair gets caught all the time in the belt drive spool, is there a fix for this other than having to pull it out all the time by hand? I have replaced the belt and the brush but this hasnt solved the...


My Dyson started making a loud noise when in "carpet" mode. After reading a ton of forums I thought it was the clutch assembly. Got a new one on eBay for a great price. Somewhat hard to replace, but thanks to this YouTube video, I was able to get it in: http://www.ezvacuum.com/dyson-dc07dc14-clutch-assembly-90025204-genuine-p-1636.html

HOWEVER this did not resolve the issue. I realized the beater bar was not spinning or was slipping. I thought I cleaned it all out but realized you need to take the beater bar out and pop the end cap and clean out the INSIDE of the beater bar (tons of lint and cat hair). I additionally sprayed WD40 in there.

It spins great now and in the end I think that's all I had to do was clean out the cat hair build up inside the beater bar. But now I have a new clutch & belts too. Hopefully won't have issues anytime soon.

Loud noise and appears the belt is slipping


Generally you will find soil and string of some sort wrapped around the drive spool. Make sure you unplug it before starting and it might be quite hot.

Replacing a belt on the unit. How do you get the belt onto the spool?


Hi,

Place the belt on the motor shaft then slide the beater bar into the belt. Center the belt where it should be on the bar, then insert the bar into the end sockets. It'll be tight. Replace the base blate. Done!

Replace belt and dyson vacuam cleaner, model dc14 I ordered a new belt and brush replacement assembly and we can't seem to understand how to get it apart to change it


If the DC14 has a brush protected aspect i.e. a switch on the front that puts the drive belt off, the drive belt would have to be replaced by a professional repairer as this can't be done at home.
If the model doesn't have the brush control at the front, flip the Dyson over so that the beater bar is in the air and locate three/four screws that can be taken out with a coin or blunt knife. A turn is all that is required on those notches and the sole plate should come off once these notches have been undone. Then check the belt - if it has broken lift out the beater bar in the middle with your hand and replace the sections necessary. Be careful to check that the end caps are pushed in properly otherwise the beater bar will not sit correctly.

How do you adjust the tension of the v-belt on the u6630-900


Hi! I'm not so familiar with this model, but I believe the V-belt is only under tension when the brush roll  control is in the "HARD" or "OFF" position. I'm not sure what the exact mechanism is, but I suspect that moving the control to the "ON" position is what places the belt under the correct tension and thus drives the roller.  Please let me know if I'm right! As for your other point, not sure what you mean by the "hood assembly cover" or why you might want to take it off. If you can clarify, I'll help if I can.

Middle brush problem


If this is new, get it replaced under warranty. Take your model number, serial number, proof of purchase and the brush block with you, or you may be able to do it at hoover.com.
