With a Kenmore Canister, on the power head, there are usually 2 screws on the bottom of the unit. You must remove both screws and unlatch the top cover; first from the back by the swivel and secondly on both sides of the power head. Changing the belt is relatively easy. Note: Stretch the new belt with your hands to make it easier to replace. The belt should go around the agitator (brush) and around the pulley coming out of the motor.

I have a oreck XL insight up right vacuum . I replaced the belt and the roller , nocwhen I turn it on it runs for two seconds and it dies off. Can you help me.


Sounds like you may have installed the wrong brush roller for your vacuum. Some of them have a sensor that detects a piece of metal embedded in the roller and if it is not there the vacuum will shut off. I work at a store that repairs them and I have issues with trying to run them when the roller is not hooked up with the belt. An easy way of figuring out whether or not you need to go back and get the correct roller is to stand behind the vacuum as if you were using it and if the cord goes into the body on the left hand side of the base then you need the roller with the metal piece. If it goes in the right side it sounds as though you might have an electrical short somewhere. Hope this helps!

I have done that, and i know where to put the belt on the roller but I don't see where to connect it. Do I need to unscrew anything


With the hood off you should see a metal shaft sticking out from the motor about 2" (directly below the handle) this is what turns the brushroller. It should be fairly obvious. I've never seen one break, so thats unlikely. Unless the motor housing melted. It only requires taking off the hood to change a belt on them.

The brush on my dyson vacuum won't turn, and the


Hello, this is Ava with Think Crucial.

There are a number of reasons why your brush roller has stopped moving. General maintenance to your vacuum is crucial and will help it work at peak performance.

First things first lets focus on the brush roller. Unplug the vacuum and turn it on its side. Look for any noticeable clumps of debris or hair strands that may be caught in the brush roller. Remove these obstructions, probably best to do so with a scissor if it's hair or long pieces of carpet fibers. After removing the debris try manually rotating the brush roller to uncover other hidden clogs. Another thing to take note of is the condition of the bristles on the roll itself. Are they loose or worn down? These are signs that your brush roller is in need of replacing.

While checking out your brush roll you might as well take a look at your vacuums belt. Your belt should be replaced about every three months. After regular usage, the belt will stretch out, lessening the tension on the brush roller. Lesser tension diminishes the brush roller's turn rate and speed. If the belt feels loose then it certainly is affecting your vacuums suction as well as your brush roll not moving at all.

I accidentally got a piece of string wound around the brush roller. It stopped the roller. I unwound and removed the string the but the roller is not rotating. Is there a reset button on a hoover tempo...


You could have broke the belt of the vacuum or it could have fallen off. Find the belt and evaluate the condition of it and if it is on track.

Trying to change the belt


things you will need Vacuum belt
  • Screwdriver
  1. Locate and purchase the correct belt for your Eureka vacuum cleaner from the local grocery or department store. Vacuum belts come in different sizes according to your model of vacuum. Check your owner's manual or the vacuum itself for your model number.

  2. Turn your vacuum cleaner over so that the bottom of the unit is facing you. Remove the cover plate from the bottom by undoing the screws that are holding it in place with a screwdriver.

  3. Locate the belt pulley rod near the back of the vacuum base coming out of the motor. With the vacuum cleaner base turned upside down and facing you, the motor and pulley rod should be up near the top of the base.

  4. Slide the vacuum brush roller out of the slots at the bottom of the vacuum base and remove the old belt from the brush roller and pulley rod. With the brush roller off of the unit, clean the brush by removing any strings or cords wrapped around the tube.

  5. Install the new belt by looping it over the belt pulley rod next to the motor and then looping around the end of the brush roller in the belt slot. Hold the brush roller and pull back on it to tighten the belt while you slide the roller back into the slots on the vacuum base.

  6. Replace the base cover plate by snapping it back into place and securing it with screws. Turn vacuum back upright and turn it on to test the belt and verify the unit is working

Have a bissell easy vac 3130-B and the brush on the bottom stopped turning i never looked before so i don really know if it turned in the first place


Behind the brush will be a metal thing that spins when the vacuum runs. That's what the belt loops over with the other end around the brush. You can sometimes find the belts a places like wal mart.

The roll brush will not turn when on floor. Too much pressure stops brush. Changed belts and still not working


Turn the belt inside out. This problem stems from a design flaw in the mechanism that turns the hoover from bare floor to carpet. After taking it apart I realized that the spring that pushes the belt tight (to make roller spin) is not any where near strong enough to keep the brush rolling. My solution was to turn the belt inside out (there by essentially shortening the belt and allowing enough pressure to be applied to the roller to keep it spinning. Horrible design flaw. I am an engineer and find this pathetic. Hope this helps someone.

How do I to change the belt on an eureka altima 12?


the belt is on the bottom right (looking at it from the front). the Eureka website does have the manual for download, http://www.eureka.com/service/manuals/80244.pdf

With the vacuum flattened (straightened) out, turn it over and remove the back roller cover, (2 screws) once off, the roller should just pop out on the opposite side (opposite from the belt). Don't forget to turn the roller to center the belt once you have it on.

No manual


Take the hood off of the unit, and remove the brush roller and belt. Wrap the new belt around the shaft of the motor and slide the brush roller inside the loop of the belt. Use the brush roller as leverage to stretch the belt out and slide the brush roller back into the roller housing. Once you have it installed correctly, make sure the roller and belt are free, by spinning it by hand. If that belt is pinched it will just burn it up when you turn the unit on.

Good luck
