Find where the wire connects to the motor-2 leads. Place even the simplest of elect. testers 2 leads to those. If you get no reading, it's your cord. A reading of 110-120 volts means power is there, but motor needs work.

Tip

Burning rubber smell from your vacuum?


Drive belt is slipping.

Remover cover from the bottom of the power head or base if upright style. Usually just 2 to 4 screws.

You will see a belt (thick rubber band) connecting the beater bar (roller with brushes) to the motor. Remove the beater bar and belt. You do not need to remove the motor. The beater bar will be held by clamps and screws. Remove the screws and clamps and lift the beater bar directly up.

Take the belt to your local vacuum dealer (note make and model) and get a replacement.

Installation is the reverse of removal.

Note: you will find a lot of hair and junk twisted around the beater bar. Take the time now to cut it all off.

Hope this helped. Please rate this if it helped you.

The brush on my Electrolux Versatility will not spin. You can spin it by hand, but the motor will not spin it.


Hello, W/D here.
Since the brush will not spin, but the motor works, either the belt has come off of the motor shaft, the belt is worn past it's useful life, or the beater bar has seized.
1. Turn off the power (unplug).
2. Remove the bottom plate. With the plate off, use your finger to test the tension of the belt. It should be tight, and roll when you roll the beater bar by hand.
3. Remove the beater bar and belt. Inspect the beater bar, particularly by the bearings. Remove any twine, hair, etc.
4. Inspect the belt for abnormal wear. If there is any significant wear in the belt, replace it.
5. Reassembly is in the reverse order. Place the belt on the beater bar. While holding the beater bar close to it's position, place the belt on the motor shaft. Rotate the beater bar bearings to their proper position and install the beater bar. Replace the cover plate.

Best regards, --W/D--

Trying to change belt


The procedure for changing a belt will vary depending on the type of vacuum you have. However, I can give you some general guidelines. Unplug the vacuum and turn it over. Generally there will be some type of cover you need to remove to expose the beater bar. This cover can sometimes be removed by taking out screws and sometimes there are plastic tabs you need to push in with a screwdriver to loosen it. Once this cover is removed you will probably see the broken belt. You need to buy a replacement belt of the same size. You can probably look up your vacuum online to find out what size you need. You can also take the old belt to the store and match it up with the available new belts. Once you have a new belt you need to remove the beater bar. The ends of the beater bar will probably fit into some type of indentations or slots. Pull on the beater bar and it should slide out. Place the new belt around the beater bar. Also hook the belt around the metal motor stub located near the rear and to one side of the exposed underside of the vacuum. Now insert the beater bar back into its original slots. This will require pulling hard on the beater bar to stretch the belt forward and away from the metal motor stub. Replace the cover and you’re good to go. I hope this helps you out

How to change belt on sears vacuum cleaner


I believe you turn the vac over so the beater bar (brush) is facing up.
Depending on the age there maybe screws or tabs that hold the plate on to the bottom of the unit. Remove those and the plate. That should expose the bar, belt and motor pulley. If the beater bar doesn't pop out when the bottom plate is removed, pull it out and remove from belt. (Pay attention to how the bar was inserted. It may have a pentagonal shape and only fit properly when inserted a certain way.
Now is a good time to clean the beater bar.
Replace with correct size belt and reassemble in reverse order.

Hope this helps.
If so, please rate me.
Thanks,
Matt

How do yu change the belt


Hello. W/D here.
On the baseplate that surrounds the beater bar, you'll see three large plastic screw heads. Turn these and youll feel the plate loosen. Raise the plate from back to front; it hinges toward the front. This gives you access to the beater bar. Remove the beater bar, making mental note as to how it comes out. You want to pay attention to the ends so you can get it back in easily. Remove whatever remains of the old belt. While you have it opened this far, inspect the suction cavity behind the beater bar; this is where they are most likely to stop up over time. Also take a moment to inspect the beater bar and remove the things that tend to wind up on the bar and at the ends. Slip your new belt over the motor shaft, and then slip the beater back under the belt. It will be tighter going back with the new belt. While the belt is on the motor shaft and the beater bar, slide the beater bar back into the sockets of the vacuum, and replace the base plate.
That's all there is to it!

Best regards, --W/D--

Vacuum won't pick up any dirt - there's no roller marks when vacuuming carpet. Roller does turn and filters are clean.


Hi,

When you turn the roller, you should feel some resistance from the belt. Remove the base blate that surrounds the beater bar. Check the belt. Take care in removing the beater bar, so you can get it back in the same way it comes out. Clean the beater bar while you have the bottom open. If you remove the beater bar to replace the belt, take the time to inspect the cavity behind the beater bar where the vacuum picks up. That is where vacuums usually stop up. Reassemble the vacuum. If necessary, slip the belt over the motor shaft and then slide the roller undre the belt. Install the beater bar back in the sockets and replace the base plate.
Best regards,

Low suction


Hi, You can take care of both things at once. Here's how:
Unplug and flip your vacuum over, beater bar side up. Remove the cover base plate that surrounds your beater bar. It's held on with either clips or screws, and usually "hinges" toward the front of the vacuum to release when the clips/screws are undone. Remove the base plate. The beater bar sits in sockets where it fits into the vacuum. Pay particular attention to how it comes out as you remove the beater bar, so it will be much easier to put it back together. If your belt is good, it will want to come off with the beater bar, but will remain attached to the motor. If necessary, slip the belt off of the beater bar. Behind the beater bar, you'll see a cavity. This is where the vacuum pulls the dirt from the beater bar. Look up into the cavity; stuff almost always hangs up in there. Remove any debris that you can find. While you have your beater bar out, look at the ends, where it fits into the sockets. Hair and other material catches on the beater bar and winds around it. If it is in and around the sockets, it causes the vacuum to have to work harder to clean. Remove any debris that you find on either end. Get your new belt and place it on the motor shaft. Slip the beater bar into the belt, and install the beater bar and sockets back into the vacuum frame. It takes patience so don't worry if it takes a few tries to get it right. Once in, test your work by revolving the beater bar a bit with your hand. You should be able to feel the tension of the belt as it turns the bar and the motor shaft. Take one more look at the sockets, just to be sure that they are in the proper place, and that the beater bar is level in the frame. Reinstall the base plate. This should have you finished at this end.

Belt


Hi. This isn't a hard repair at all.... Unplug your vacuum. Turn the vacuum beater bar side up. Locate the catches or screws that hold the plate on that covers the beater bar. Remove the plate. The beater bar sits in sockets where it attaches to the vacuum, so remove carefully, making note how it comes out. This will make reassembly much easier. Place your new belt on the motor shaft, then onto the beater bar while you replace the beater bar back into the sockets. Test your work by revolving the beater bar a bit by hand. Reinstall the cover plate. That's it!

Regards! --W/D--
