I found out that the Royal Mfg. Co. used the same schematic from this model to make newer models which had a belt, however, this older model that I have does not have a belt drive.

How to change belt on dirt devil handy zip


Hello! Below are step by step instructions to replacing the belt on your hand vac. I have also included a link to the instruction manual which has pictures as well as instructions. Really hope this helps!

1. Lift the black plug on the face of the cleaner.
NOTE: BLACK PLUG MUST BE ON WHEN ATTACHMENTS ARE NOT IN USE.
2. Use belt lifter.
3. Center and raise the Hand Vac with your left hand as shown. Using your right hand, dip the belt lifter in and hook the belt around the lip of the belt lifter. Slip the belt onto the motor shaft until the belt lifter base meets the shaft.
4. To insure proper belt placement, gently turn belt lifter counterclockwise and remove. Make sure belt is pushed back on shaft.
NOTE: THE BELT WILL COME OFF IF NOT PROPERLY INSTALLED.
6. To remove the belt, hold belt lifter. Hook the belt on the left side of the motor shaft, turn clockwise and pull the belt towards you to release.

I need to change the belt. How do I get it off inside the vac.


Turn the vacuum over so you are looking at the brush.Remove the screws and that plate will come off.The belt fits on the brush,in a groove.The other end of the belt fits on a small wheel about 6 inches back,form the groove on the brush.There may be another plate over the wheel.When you get the plate off the bottom you will see what I am talking about.It is not hard.

How do I repalce the belt on Dirt Devil Swivel Glide upright vac?


Four screws hold the bottom plate in place. Turn the vac upside down and remove the screws that hold the cover(bottom plate) over the brush roll in place. Remove the plate and you are there.

DIRT DEVIL MADEL 08245 BRUSE DOSEN'T ROTATE


I had the same problem and fixed it to where it would work OK, althought not 100%. 1. Disconnect the hose that goes to the roller brush area. 2. Press the button right below the power switch while sliding the handle what ever direction it will go to release it from the body of the vac. 3. Remove 3 screws from the handle halves. 4. Remove 2 screws from a keyed black plastic piece that hold the handle halves together. 5. Carefully separate the handles halves from the clear plastic piece in the center that allows you to view the brush and belt. 6. If the belt is broken or missing, replace it and reassemble, if the belt is OK, remove the roller and test if the bearings spin freely. 7. If they don't, then remove the clip or clips of each end that hold the bearing(s) in place. (Work in a controlled environment so that when the little clip goes flying you'll be able to locate it without moving the refridgerator.) 8. Clean the back side of the bearing of hair, dust and dirt. (used compressed air if you have it) 9. Reassemble the bearing(s) you removed and cleaned on each end of the roller. I used a spritz of teflon dry lube spray on each when I put them back together. 10. Disassemble the air motor bearing from the shaft on the end that does not have the belt gear. Be careful not to lose the flat thrust bearing/washer at the bottom of the bearing housing. Clean, lube and reassemble. 11. Since I felt I couldn't remove the belt gear from the shaft (to get at the bearing), without damaging it, I worked at cutting the hairs and threads wound around the shaft. I used a single edge razor blade to painstakingly cut and remove what I could, then lubed and reassembled air motor. 12. I then reassembled everything and tried it. IT WORKED. The still sluggish bearing on the gear end of the air motor wasn't enough to stop the motor from turning the brush at an acceptable speed and torque.

Changing a vaccum belt


Most of the Dirt Devils, turn the vac. over, remove the bottom plate, then you can get to the belt and brush roll. If the bottom plate doesn't come off, then from the top, there will be 2 or 3 screws to remove, then the top cover comes off to reveal the belt and brush roll.

Vacuum problem


I bought a dirtdevil 8 years ago and it's still going. As long as the motor works then you have check to see if the brushroller turns. If not then check the roller belt (take the cover apart some have screws or lock tabs on bottom panel near wheels) If the suction is low then check the vac bag, also with bag off, turn on the vac to check if air comes thru.If not the inside tube is clogged(plastic bags, small objects, ect.)Also when you open the bottom panel to check the roller belt, check the flex pipe that sucks up to the vac bag(unclogg it).

My dirt devil vacuum won't suck up anything and its brand new!!


Take the vac bag off and turn on the vac , it should blow air out, if not unclogg the hose where the bag connects, also when you check the roller and belt, unclog the flex hose(located inside base near roller assembly) that sucks up the dirt. As long as the motor works fine the rest is just maint.
