If it has a belt it goes around the sweeper part and connects to the motor.

    Thanks SD Tech. I studied the belt system and eventually was able to stretch belt from motor spindle to sweeper bar. Since belt circumference is so small on this old model it was difficult to hook on bar. It looks, from videos, that the newer models have eased this challenge.

Beater bar Belt Removal from Upright Electrolux...
Posted by wrenn on Jul 14, 2008
I am trying to change the belt on an Electrolux Model 1717 Upright Vacuum and I am having difficulty disassembling the vacuum to remove the beater bar and belt.
Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. . Normally there are screws, clips or levers that would remove the bottom plate or if that does not work then the top cover will come off and that will expose the belt. Once that is off and the belt is exposed then cut off the old belt and then lift up the brushroll on the pulley end and install the new belt around the pulley end and re-install the brushroll. Then use a belt puller or a screwdriver with a bent right or left end to stretch the belt onto the motor pulley and then track the belt in a straight line and reverse you steps in the reinstall of the top cover or bottom plate. 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.

There are two tabs on the bottom that release the plate and allow the plate to be snapped in and out. They are easy to spot. But, there are also screw holes in some models and there may be screws in them. You might have to deal with both. The screws are unecessary and you can leave them out when you put the plate back on.

That is an indication that the belts are worn, stretched or broken. You simply need to replace the belt. Here is a link to the belt(s) you need and a manual you can view:

How do I get the sweeper apart to change the belt


Well, we need to know what brand of sweeper you have. Usually, there are screws, 3 or 4, or swing tabs on the bottom near the plate where the brushes peek out. Just take those off and, if you don't have a spare belt, take the old belt to the store where you bought your vacuum and get a new one. There should be something molded into the plastic to show how the belt goes on if it should be turned. Otherwise, it will go on some small silver bars. But, really, the brand and model of the vacuum would be helpful.

Beaters bar will not turn


Hi Earl! It can't be easy to pick up debris when the brushes don't turn. If you've owned the sweeper for some time, it may be necessary to replace the brushes.

The brush on my bissell prolite multicyclonic vacuum won't turn. It seems like it is jammed, but I checked for anything that might be stuck in it and don't see anything. Is there a reset button?


I had the same problem with my old Bissell sweeper ( I bought a new rotating brush each time this happened then I bought a new sweeper the next time it happened -last Dec. 2009.) Unfortumately I bought a new Bissell and now it is happening again to the new sweeper. I do clean the brush often but what has happened is that the hair somehow gets inside the brush via the end caps???This sweeper does have end caps that can be removed for cleaning --although not that easily when they are locked up. I did this yesterday but before I could remove the end cap I had to use a pin, scissors, etc. anything that I could get into the groove to remove lint, etc. that caused it to lock up. Then when I got the end cap to move a little, I pried it off. I found hair, etc. inside where the metal rod is which I don't think should be happening --I used a seam ripper also to try to get some out. I have owned many different brands of sweepers and have never seen this problem before. Then, I put the end cap back on, however, it was not smooth on the inside--almost like it had melted when it locked up. So, the sweeper brush now moves but it is noisy. I guess I will buy another brush -- but this seems ridiculous for a new sweeper--the customer service rep told me that the brush does wear out.... but not on a sweeper that is less than a year old. There is no wear and tear on the brushes. Oh, and the CSR told me that they haven't had people call about this problem --I am guessing they are just buying new brushes or new sweepers. The sweeper def. has great suction but I think other brands do also..

Where does the belt go?


If you are looking straight onto the vacuum it goes on the right side around a small metal bar and then around the brush. Make sure that when you push the brush up that both caps are twisted in the correct position so it will slide easily into the grooves.

How to replace the belt on my bissell model 3512-9 vacuum


Tehre are tabs on the bottom. Push them in the direction of the arrow (one at a time) and lift with some force on the cage thingy that partially covers the sweeper. Do the same for the other side. It doesn't matter which side you do first.

I changed the belt on my vacuum,and the belt burned up,and snapped.Right after I changed it.Am I missing a piece??


Sometimes it can depend on the quality of the belt - if its brand new then it shouldn't snap the moment it is changed; if its an older belt sometimes they can break up the moment they're changed. Ensure that the model you have is correct with the correct product code of the drive belt. Also Check that the sides of the brush bar are not clogged with dirt - one way to check would be to check the brush bar rolls freely with no belt on it before putting a new one on. Another issue is something my old LG upright used to do - it used to break new belts even when the roller brush was completely clear - and the only way to get it to stop was to replace the heavy dirt bag with a new one. It seems the slightest bit of strain on a motor can make things like belts break. Hope all this info helps.
