The belt broke on my vacuum, how do i change it. the vacuum is a eureka model number 3041

Remove the base plate. It is held with screws accessible from under the unit.

Inside you will see the beater bar and the belt.
Remove the beater bar. This is self explanatory once you see inside the power head.
Remove the old belt.

Find a replacement from your local dealer or online.

Replacement is the reverse of removal.

This is a simple job you only need a screwdriver.

Good luck, please rate this answer. Thanks.

The belt doesn't have to be broken to make the vacuum not work correctly. If the belt is stretched the vacuum won't operate the way it is supposed to. You can get replacement Dyson Belts here:

Belt replacement

It's a fairly simple job. The belt just loops over the end of the beater bar and motor shaft. Need to take the cover off the beater bar housing to get to it. Most difficult part is stretching the belt while putting the beater bar back in the housing.

The brush isn't spinning

the belt is broke. you can buy a new one for around 5-10 dollars at target or walmart, or loews or homedepot.take the screws of the bottom panel to expose belt. you will have to pull out the beater bar to replace the belt. just pull on it after the bottom plate is removed the beater bar just slides out. slide the new belt down the beater bar then pull the belt over the spinning pin. now stretch the beater back to its original position it should slide right in. replace the bottom plate and your back in business
