It's a little tricky but here's how you get to the belt:

  1. Once you have removed the housing and the roller, turn the vacuum so that you are facing the pin the turns.
  2. Pull the belt to the back of the unit with your right hand so that the belt is against the pin on the front side and with your left foot apply pressure to the carriage where the roller sits. This action causes the plastic housing next to the pin to move toward the front of the vacuum providing enough space to slide the belt off easily.
  3. Be careful that you do not apply too much pressure with the foot.

WHAT KIND OF BELT DOES IT USE AND WHERE IS THE BELT LOCATED.... MINE SMELLS HOT AND IS MAKING A HORRIBLE GRINDING NOISE. CAN'T FIND WHERE TO LOOK FOR BELT PROBLEM OR WHERE IT'S LOCARED NOR WHAT...


since there is no make and model number listed, I can give you some basics, the belts for vacuum's are located along the beater bar at one end, you can remove the bottom plate of the machine usually by removing a few screws,, this will show you the belt and inner path of the bar , before you remove the bar , take notice at how the end caps are situated, they vary by make, any home depot, or repair service shop will have the belt you need,
hope this helped a little If you need more info, Just reply to this answer, and I will help you with more detain and info

How to change brush belt


OK, here goes... NOTE - any use of the words LEFT and RIGHT assume that you are looking from the REAR of the machine. NOTE ALSO - the machine has two toothed belts, it makes sense to change both while you're at it. Incidentally, this is a job you shouldn't have to do very often - Sebo belts usually last at least 10 years.
STEP 1. Separate the base from the bag compartment: press the button at bottom front centre of bag compartment and lift bag compartment upwards away from base. Sometimes this is quite stiff and four hands would be useful, you can lever it from behind with something relatively soft (the plastic handle of a dishwash brush works well) but take care to lift vertically upwards, not sideways or you risk bending a metal lever that's hard to get back into shape again. Rest assured that once you've pressed that button there is nothing holding the two parts together other than friction!
STEP 2. Turn the base upside-down and undo the FOUR DEEPLY-RECESSED SCREWS. All the surface-mounted screws are irrelevant to this job.
STEP 3. Turn the complete base right-way up, release the foot pedal and move the vacuum tubes out of vertical. The top cover will then lift off. You will see there are two belts - the pulley device between the motor and the brush roller is the sensor that measures the drag on the brushes and operates the automatic height adjuster to maintain constant drag. To the right of that double pulley is the electronic circuit board - note that it has a sensor that locates within the pulley device, be careful not to damage it.
STEP 4. At the left end of the motor cover, the drive cog is concealed by a small cover. Lift this cover out vertically, noting how it locates in the frame for when you come to put it back. Next, although not essential, it helps to remove the metal lever because if it falls out when you're not looking you may later be uncertain about how to locate the small coil spring. So slide that lever out towards the motor, noting how the spring locates.
STEP 5. Undo the two screws holding the circuit board (take care the washers don't slip away). Then undo the four screws holding the double pulley. Once that's free, you'll be able to change the belts.
Re-assembly is simply the reverse of the above process.

Is there a diagram/picture to help me visualize how to put cleaner belt back in vacuum? I was taking base of vacuum apart so I could get rid of hair that were wrapped on the roller. The cleaner belt came...


Hi,

Sorry to hear your belt fell out. Not good if you've never replaced a belt before...

Here is a website where you can read a detailed description of how to change a belt: http://www.ehow.com/how_8034505_eureka-belt-replacement-instructions.html

I don't think you'll need a photo, it's pretty straight forward. However, there are schematic diagrams for vacuums but they don't show how they go together.

If you have trouble, reply back to me and I'll try to describe for you.

Hope this helps. If it does, I'd appreciate a 4 thumbs up. Thanks,

Handie Andie

Is there a manual for installing new drive belts on my LG Kompressor - we've had it for less than a month and the belt broke. I ordered 2 replacement belts and the new one doesn't work and the brush won't...


You've probably figured this out, but my luv200R had the same problem. The belt broke, I changed it and it still didn't spin the brushes. Turned out, the roller has bearings on either end and one of the bearings was bad and wasn't letting roller roll. So the pulley would spin against the belt and heat up and break it again. I took the bad roller to Sears where they had a new one sent to my house free of charge since it was less than a year old.

Loud noise??


I have the exact same problem. I've taken the thing apart and cannot figure out what is causing the noise. It's not the belt and it doesn't seem to be coming from the engine. It sounds like the spinning brush is hitting something, but it's not, that I can see.

HOW DO I CHANGE THE BELT ON THE FANTOM® THUNDER® AND FURY®? a.gif fantombeltchange1.jpg
fantombeltchange2.jpg

  1. Unplug the machine.
  2. From the front of the machine, remove the collection bin.
  3. Facing the back of your vacuum, remove each of the Philips head screws located above each of the rear wheels. (Figure 1)
  4. To remove the base cover, place your thumbs in the two screw holes in the back of the machine. Push forward and up on the screw holes to disengage the 3 cover locking tabs. Put the cover off to one side, and go to the front of the machine. (Figure 2)
  5. Check the drive arm for any black streaks which indicate residual rubber from the last belt. The drive arm is located on the right side of the motor. The easiest way to remove any residual rubber is with some nail polish remover on a rag or with steel wool.
  6. To attach a new belt, remove the brush from the base of the machine by pulling up straight up with two hands.
  7. Take the new belt and hook it over the steel drive arm. Pull back on the belt slightly, to create some tension.
  8. Put the brush inside the belt loop so that the track for the belt is aligned with the belt itself.
  9. Replace the brush by aligning the metal end so the points face downward. (Figure 3)
  10. Rotate the brush by hand to check that the belt is running freely and easily in its designated space between the bristle.
  11. Replace the cover by placing the nose in first. Once in place fasten with the two cover screws and then replace the collection bin.
