On the front of the power head is a knob with the KIRBY name on it. Rotate this knob in a counter clockwise direction and it will "lift" the belt off the motor spindle. Release the head lever, only one direction it will turn and remove the head. Turn the head over on its back, turn the KIRBY knob to release the old belt. Remove the brush guard by turning the two release fixtures. Remove the guard. Pry the brush out of the head. Remove the old belt. While the brush is out remove any build up of hair and lint off the ends that's where the bearings are. put a few drops of 3 in One oil on the ends. Put the new belt over the brush and re-install the brush into the head. the brush will go in only one way. With your finger pull the belt into the housing and rotate the KIRBY knob until the pawl inside grabs the belt. Re-install the brush guard by engaging the two metal pieces into the front of the head and pull down backwards over the head and rotate the holding clips back horizontal. re-install the powerhead on the machine, lock it in place and rotate the KIRBY knob clockwise. You should be all set!

Broken belt on infinity vacum


Hello,

You may find the belt for your vacuum through the link below. Unfortunately the only way that Shark sells this belt is with both belts as a set, you can not purchase each indiviudal belt separately.

I have also uploaded the instruction manual for your vacuum in a .pdf file on Fixya. Please note that it may take sometimes up to 24 hours for the manual to show up. Please check the following link over the next 24 hours. This instruction manual gives you step by step instructions on how to replace the belt, and also contains diagrams that will help you follow along.

Here's the link where the instruction manual will be downloaded. The belt change instructions are on page 15:
http://www.sharkclean.com/manual/NV31_REV_0706.pdf

Here's the set of belts that go on the Euro-Pro Infinity Upright model NV31, Shark Part Number 1085F:

I hope this was helpful to you in solving your belt problems. If this was helpful please rate the repair helpful by clicking on the thumbs up icons in the top right hand corner of the repair.

Thank you very much,

Belt is off


You need to replace the belt. Over time they stretch and wear and then don't stay on and make it so the vacuum doesn't pick up well. Here is the belt you need and a manual you can view which has instructions:

Vacuum is about 4 years old does not pick up well


Have you ever replaced the belt? That is most likely the reason that it is not picking up like it used to. You are actually supposed to change the belt yearly. Here is the belt you need and the manual which has instructions:
