First we need to know what brand and model your vacuum is. But usually you would make sure your vacuum is unplugged. Flip it over and look at roller brush part of the vacuum and find the screws that can be unscrewed to remove the cover of the rotating brush. Once that is off, you will find find a belt on the side of the roller that will need to be removed if broken. You will need to pull out the roller and put the new belt in and stretch it to the motor part which will sping the belt causing to spin the roller brush. Then reassemble and screw cover. Plug vacuum and happy cleaning !

My soniclean vacuum runs but as soon as I put the vacuum to carpet or floor the it shuts off and the check brush light comes on. Nothing is blocking the brushes or stuck in the intake hole


Sounds like the belt for the brush is worn, stretched, or loose. Replace the belt. OR the brush is set to low or set for hard floor. Set the brush up to next mark until it works. Using it set to low can cause the brush belt to stretch over time. If it spins when not in contact with the floor- it is the belt.

Even if the flat belt is broken and the v belt loose shouldn't the shafts or something be spinning when I flip it over and turn it on? Nothing is spinning on mine


There is a tensioner pulley that drops when you drop the handle down. It squeezes the belt against the roller making it spin. This part often breaks as well. Replace the flat belt, and check to make sure the v belts edges aren't rounded. If they are and the edges are not crisp replace that belt as well. DO NOT put the v belt under the tensioner pulley. It will break should you do so. I'll include a link to the correct part # for that flat belt.

Was replacing the belt on my G6 Kirby and now can't get it reattached. Can't find my manual.


If it is any help, I usually put it on the motor shaft and then over the roller (which I have removed) and then replace the roller. I find this is easier on most models since you can then hold onto the roller (which is bigger) and have an easier time mounting the roller into the vacuum than mounting the belt on the motor shaft. Just make sure that you have the belt on correctly. The belt should only be touching the roller and the motor shaft, nothing in between. Hope this helps. Good luck!

The belt keeps breaking lately. I've had the


Before putting on the new belt make sure the brush turns freely and nothing is wraped around the bearing ends, if it is not turning free and is clean try a little grease or vasaline on the bearing ends. dont get any on the belt though. check the motor shaft also it should be clean and no residue from the old belts on it. it can be cleaned with rubbing alcohol and a rag, if really caked try a scotch pad .

I can't get the power brush belt on tight. Am I missing something?


I don't know what brand of vacuum you have, but the belts on most vacuums should be changed approx. once a year. The belt can look fine, but is stretched and won't have the necessary tension to turn the roller. It is possible that the roller is in need of servicing. If the bearings in the roller are fouled with dirt and hair, they will not turn properly and a new belt will not solve your problem. Take the roller out of the machine and turn the end caps by hand. They should turn freely. Once you've determined that the roller is o.k., install a new belt, turn the roller by hand to make sure that nothing is jammed and then try the machine again.
