Belt


Look underneath where the brush roller is located. The brush roller is removed to replace the belt. The new belt is installed on the motor shaft and the brush roller then the brush roller is reinstalled

The bristles will not spin.


See if the belt (that drives the bristles) if is loose or need replacement.The belts are located either on the left or right side of the bristle brush(you can locate it by putting the vacuum upright and see under the brushes). If it is loose or broken replace it(walmart has replacements for it or any hardware store)just bring the belt for the replacement number written on the belt,or know the brand and model number.

Vacuum has burning smell like a belt but cant figure out how to tear apart


If you flip the Dyson upside down you will see moz-screenshot-2.png

First job is unscrew the 3 retainers (arrowed) they turn a quarter turn.

If your belt hasn't snapped it will need pulling off the motor shaft

The brushbar can now be pulled out (this brushroll had a groove scored into the side of it caused by a hair grip its visible just to the left of my thumb)


c633e87.png
With the new belt positioned on the new brushroll insert it into the hole and locate brushroll
(To make the belt easier to locate on the motor shaft give it a bit of a stretch)

Ensure these lugs are located correctly

Pull the belt over the motor shaft

Refit the soleplate cover and tighten three screws

Before switching the machine back on rotate the brushroll to make sure the belt hasn't been trapped between the soleplate.
I hope this helps and good luck!

Sweeper belt


Greetings from GoVacuum.com,

Have you replaced the belt with a new one yet? You may want to try replacing the belt, as with flat belts like the Fantom Thunder, they do stretch out 4 -5 inches after time. We in fact recommended replacing a flat belt every year, even if the belt doesn't break, because of the stretching. I think what may have happened, is that your belt is stretched to the point where it will not stay on the pulley as soon as there is any tension (putting the brushes on carpeting), which will cause the belt just to slip off.

You should be able to replace the belt (very inexpensive, we sell Fantom belt for $2) and this should take care of the problem. When you replace the belt, you should also take the roller brush apart and remove any hair, or thread that may be wrapped around the bearings. You should be able to remove the bearing cap by pulling them, or holding one end, and unscrewing the other.

I'd even be willing to send you a free Fantom Thunder belt, if you'd be so kind to vote Fixya for this answer :-) Just send me an email with your name, address, and the exact model number (located on the back of the machine, or the bottom of it) of your vacuum, and vote Fixya, I'll immediately ship you the belt for free!

Please let me know if you have any other questions I can help you with.
