I have been searching the machine for something which could be rubbing against the belt to cause it to fray and break as often as it does. So far, I haven't found anything. I have heard that the belts, called ribbon belts, are terrible! I find that the belts break faster when I use the hose. I haven't found a way to make a belt last longer.

How long hace you had your vacuum? THe belts on this vacuum are actually supposed to last a really long time. If the belts brake faster when your using the hose that impies your clutch which tightens and loosens your belt to keep the brush from spinning while the vacuum is upright couild be malfuntioning. If you post your serial number i can tell you if your still under manufacturers warranty.

I have also noticed that the belt on my Eureka Boss does not track properly. This causes the edge of the belt to fray and eventually disintegrate. I tried replacing the brush roll but that didn't help. If I spin the brush roll manually, I can see the belt start to track in toward the motor side of the motor shaft. As far as I can tell, there is no way to make any adjustments to help it track correctly. This vacuum has served me well for a few years but I guess I'm going to have to replace it since there doesn't seem to be any way to keep the belt from failing.

How to replace belt on vacuum cleaner


This URL will take you to a site and show you the Eureka 7600 series of vacuums and the owner's manual that shows how to replace the belt:
http://dl.owneriq.net/c/c5c42eca-6856-41a6-9c0c-1dbd5c429b06.pdf
As long as you are taking the beater brush off to change the belt, please take the time to clean the beater brush and lubricate the space between the brush and the holders found on each end with some WD40. Frozen beater brushes are often the cause of belts breaking.
Please let me know if there are any problems with this.

The top comes off to get to the belt and brush roll. Did you check the brush roll to make sure that the ends turn freely, or is one not turning, the belt is a lon life "U" part #61120A. The brush roll is what drives the vacuum, but if brush roll or belt is bad, then it won't drive it.
