The brush roller itself has crud jammed in it. it is not the belt. the smell however - is the belt being burnt as the small metal axle tries to turn the who unit - but the belt wont move - so the small axle spins and burns into the belt. this can burn the belt and melt it and can also stress the motor which is the real pricey repair and not worth it.

pop the roller out of the bottom and hold the very end 'cap' - now spin the roller with your hand - if it doesn't spin with next to no effort - there are probably hairs and threads inside that gumming it up so it wont spin. this is NOT referring to the outside of the roller which can be the issue - untangle any pet or human hairs - carpet strings etc etc - this can solve the issues as well. but regarding the inside turning swivel on the brushroll - some models the end caps come off - some they do not. i put a razor on the sides and cut up some hairs and strings till it was spinning again by hand but it was still not enough to allow the brush to spin on all settings. eventually i was forced to buy a new roller (i have jaguar upright - old model m085830t) - hope this helps -

a few more words of advice - when you buy a vac - once a month or so flip it over and cut out long hairs - threads - and strings - your vac will last forever - if you do this - if it smokes - turn it off right away parts are burning lol

Ok I would say the belt burnt into if you can turn it on and the motor runs it is the belt . I would pull it apart and replace the belt.

Why


Hi! There are a few reasons why your brushes may not be spinning. Try these simple steps below.

1. Your brush roll may be clogged. Unplug the cleaner and remove any debris from brush roll.
2. Make sure the brush roll setting is turned on. The brush roll on/off switch is located on the handle of the hose.
3. Reset the brushes. The brush roll reset button is located on the back of the nozzle on the right side.

Hope this helps! If you still have questions feel free to reach out to us here on Fixya, Facebook.com/dirtdevil or Twitter @DirtDevil.

Got Dirt Devil Featherlite,keeps burning the belt out immediately and there is only one way to put the belt on...have put on 4 new belts.....what up?


Hi There,

When a belt breaks immediately after installing it, this can ONLY mean one of two things. The first is that the belt was put back on incorrectly, and it may be pinched underneath of the beater bar. This would cause it to break immediately, but I seriously doubt after 4 belts that you put the belt on wrong all 4 times.

The second, and more probable cause is that your roller brush has gone bad. This could be why the belt broke in the first place. In order to test to make sure the brush is bad, unscrew the bottom plate, and remove the brush like you were changing the belt.

Hold the brush at the very end on both sides, using only your finger tips. While holding just the bearing caps, try spinning the bar with your thumbs. Does the brush spin freely in your hands? It should spin completely around 4-5 times on each spin. If the brush will not spin, or if you feel any resistance to it spinning, this is the reason why your belt continues to break.

If the brush can not spin, the motor shaft will continue to try and spin the belt, but since the brush doesn't spin, and the belt doesn't move, the motor shaft will just burn right through the back end of the belt.

If your machine is actually the model that's listed on this Fixya repair page, the Dirt Devil Featherlite model M085845, then your machine uses the following roller brush:
Dirt Devil Plastic Brush Roll for Model 085845 Part # 2-881020-000

The next time that change the belt, install the brush back into the machine, but this time pull up on the belt towards the brush to make sure that the belt spins freely, and spins the brush as well. If the belt doesn't spin the brush, there's some issue, and the belt will break as soon as you turn the machine on.

I hope this helped you. If you find out that you don't need a new brush, feel free to use the comment section here on the repair page and let me know, I'd be happy to walk you through some more advanced diagnosing. If you found this helpful, please be so kind and rate my repair and / or leave feedback for me.

Thanks so much,

I need help replacing the belt on my Dirt Devile Swivel Glide.


Look for a silver motor shaft behind the brush roll but in line with where the belt sits.
If the shaft is blackened with burned rubber or rusty, it should be polished with wet dry sand paper, XTRA Fine. Then install the correct belt onto the shaft and brush, using the brush to stretch the belt forward so the brush can drop into it`s housing. Buy belts 2 at a time. They only break when you need them most. I hide my spare inside the housing.

Dirt Devil overheating Belt Okay


the belt is probably worn , so when the spool turns it heats up and looses friction with the belt.

I cant get the power brush to work is there a reset button? the vacuum is only 2 months old dirt devil 12amp bagless featherlite


can you turn the brush by hand? if it turns real freely the belt is broke or the brush siezed up make sure there isn't any carpet strans wrapped around the ends of the brush otherwise the brush won't turn.if its the belt make sure you clean the motor shaft before you put on the new belt,the old rubber from the old belt will make the new belt run unevevly and break again..good luck

It sounds like either the bearings are seized, or there is debris in the assembly. You will probably need to dismantle the vacuum and clean everything out. It's not unusual for vacuum s to get really dirty and need periodic maintenance. If you have replaced the belt, then you have the skill to do the rest. Note that after re-assembly don't try to lubricate the bearings. They will only collect dirt faster.

How do I change the belt for my dirt devil vacuum cleaner? It blows out dust.


To change the belt, take off the bottom plate, the belt runs between the brush roll and the motor shaft. But if it is blowing out dust, you may have a clog in the dirt inlet by the brush roll, or in the hose.

Vacuum motor shaft too hot


Check the brush roll ends, will they turn easily or is one frozen. If so, you need to replace the brush roll. If the motor turns on, it and the belt are trying to turn the brush roll and can't. Also check the ends where the brush roll sits in and make sure it hasn't overheated and melted., If it did you will have to replave the base.

"brush bar spins erratically"


Belt needs to be replaced, it has stretched to the point that under load, it won't turn the brush roll like it should, so I would advise replacing the belt. And while you are doing that, check the brush roll and make sure the ends turn freely, if not, then replace it also. Then check the dirt inlet while you have the brush roll out.

Replacing a belt on a dirt devil vaccuum


That metal rod is probably the motor shaft or pulley. On some of these, the open space between the shaft and top cover is very narrow. You just have to push thru th opening to around the shaft, then put it on the brush roll. Th belt will stretch enough to re-install the brush roll.
