How to replace handy zip belt ?


Hello! Below are step by step instructions to replacing the belt on your hand vac. I have also included a link to the instruction manual which has pictures as well as instructions. Really hope this helps!

1. Lift the black plug on the face of the cleaner.

NOTE: BLACK PLUG MUST BE ON WHEN ATTACHMENTS ARE NOT IN USE.

2. Use belt lifter.

3. Center and raise the Hand Vac with your left hand as shown. Using your right hand, dip the belt lifter in and hook the belt around the lip of the belt lifter. Slip the belt onto the motor shaft until the belt lifter base meets the shaft.

4. To insure proper belt placement, gently turn belt lifter counterclockwise and remove. Make sure belt is pushed back on shaft.

NOTE: THE BELT WILL COME OFF IF NOT PROPERLY INSTALLED.

6. To remove the belt, hold belt lifter. Hook the belt on the left side of the motor shaft, turn clockwise and pull the belt towards you to release.

Green light does not come on ans brush does not move. belt is good and brush does spin manually.


I assume this is a Kirby. The belt is not on the motor shaft if you can turn the brush manually. Remove the head, turn the belt lifter assembly clockwise to stretch the belt into a loop, place the head back onto the motor unit and latch it in place, then turn the belt lifter counterclockwise to drop the belt onto the motor shaft.

My Kirby is not engaging the belt after it was put back on. I took it off to clean brushes and did everything according to the video but the belt will still not engage and green light does not come on.


The belt is not on the motor shaft. Remove the head from the motor unit. With the belt centered on the brushroll, turn the belt lifter a full 3/4 turn counterclockwise to stretch the belt up onto the belt lifter finger. ( Look through the back to be sure the belt is streched into a loop over the finger.) Plce the head back on the motor unit and latch it in place, then turn the belt lifter fully clockwise to drop the belt onto the motor shaft. Be sure the brushroll is correctly installed in the head. Setting # 1 should face the floor.

Was replacing the belt on my G6 Kirby and now can't get it reattached. Can't find my manual.


If it is any help, I usually put it on the motor shaft and then over the roller (which I have removed) and then replace the roller. I find this is easier on most models since you can then hold onto the roller (which is bigger) and have an easier time mounting the roller into the vacuum than mounting the belt on the motor shaft. Just make sure that you have the belt on correctly. The belt should only be touching the roller and the motor shaft, nothing in between. Hope this helps. Good luck!

Install New Belt


Lift the headlight and rotate the thumb dial to release the carpet head. It will spin to the side. Rotate the square handle at the front of the vac fully to the left.
Remove the carpet head and open it from the bottom side. Observe which side had a little block below the LED belt indicator when you rotate the brush. The brush must go back in this way. The blocks at the end of the brush are color coded for height adjustment. Remove the brush, slide a genuine belt onto the center and close the bottom cover of the housing. make sure the brush spins freely, now look into the belt opening, round hole at the side. Using the square dial at the front of the head, rotate the hook into the belt to twist the belt and open it for installation onto the motor shaft.
Reinstall the head onto the vac, using the thumb dial to lock into place and rotate the square handle again . This will release the belt tension onto the motor shaft. Raise the vac up two knotches with the pedal before lower onto the carpet.

My vacuum has good suction but i can hardly push it across my carpet. any answers????


is your brush roller turning,that would cause it to be hard to push .the brush roller helps it walk across the floor.if your brush roller isn't turning then your belt is broke or the brush itself siezed up.unplug the vacuum and try to turn the brush roller .if it turns real free then your belt is broke.before you replace the belt always clean the motor shaft ,the old rubber from the old belt melts onto the motor shaft .if you don't clean it your new belt won't last very long.please leave feedback

How do I change the belt in a Hoover U4262-930


You got the second hardest part done; the hardest part is what you're asking about.
To get the new belt onto the drive shaft I used a long screwdriver for leverage and wrapped the end close to the shaft and with some elbow grease, got it to "slip" on to the shaft. It took a couple of tries, but once I overcame the fear of the belt breaking (because it has to stretch big time), I managed to get it one. Of course, the other end of the belt has to be wrapped around the roller first.
I found a link for a tech manual for this model, but it didn't help much....
good luck.
