Re: How do you remove the vacuum roller off

I assume this an Eureka? If it is then there are 2 screws on the top cover, take them out and the cover will come off, the belt and brush roller are out in the open now. Brush roll Part #54941-1 and belt part #54312.

How do I remove the brush roller from a Shark Euro ProX upright vacuum?

If you can't figure out how to take a brushroll out without asking ( which is obviously the case here ) you shouldn't be messing with it. Take it to your local vac repair shop.

I cannot get the beater bar off my Eureka ''the boss'' 25th anniversay editon.

Take the top 2 screws off the top of the hood. Lift the hood off forward. That will get you access to the roller brush. You will need to take a flat headed screws driver to the ends of the roller brush housing and pop the roller out.

Hello, I have a problem with my Eureka Powerline bagged upright vacuum. It has a 12 amp motor and is model #4352, Type D. It was probably bought new in 1998. My problem is, while vacuuming today the motor...

it sounds like a rubber sealing in the motor has come loose and is being constantly rubbed against the walls of the motor with would cause the smell and loss of motor speed caused by the fricton of rubber against the rod so if you can get to the motor try to open it and see if you can get it if not take it to a small engine repair service hope this was helpful:)

Motor smells like it's burning. Upright Powerline Model 5847. Have kept filters clean and cut entangled hair from the rollers. Have had vacuum for about 5 or 6 years.

The burning may be coming from the roller drive belt if the roller is jammed due to debris build up or has seized roller end bearings. Remove the roller and belt and examine both for damage. The roller, without the belt, should spin freely by hand. Replace the belt if it has a burned spot as it will fail shortly. Hope this helps.

Putting on a belt on a vacuum

Greetings from,

Replacing a Belt on an Upright vacuum can vary from model to model, but it is basically going to be the same for most upright models.

First you will need to access the belt. Most upright vacuums this is done by turning the machine upside down, and most you'll need to remove the bottom plate by unscrewing (usually 4) screws that hold the plate on. You should see screws that are closest to the actual roller brush, simply remove these screws, and take the bottom plate off. If the machine is a Eureka, or Kenmore, the top agitator housing will be removed from the top of the vacuum, not the bottom.

Once you have removed the bottom plate, or top agitator housing, you should be able to see the belt (or broken belt) along with the roller brush. Remove the broken belt. Make sure that you purchase the correct belt by taking the make, and the model number (located on the back or bottom of the machine). Please note that a broken belt may be 4-5 inches longer then a new belt, as they stretch a lot before they finally break.

Once you have the new belt, you will need to remove the roller brush. Pay attention to how the roller brush fits into the agitator housing, usually there will be fittings on the end of the roller that have to be put in a specific place, or in a certain way to work right. After the roller brush is taken out of the machine, you will need to wrap one end of the belt around a metal pulley on the opposite side of the roller brush. Most pulleys are located where the main housing (handle part) of the vacuum meet the the agitator (floor part) part of the machine. Anyways, wrap one end of the belt around the pulley, and then put the roller brush through the other end of the belt. This is where you'll need to put some elbow grease into it. You'll need to stretch the roller brush and belt so that the brush and belt are stretched back to the place where you took the roller brush out of the vacuum.

Once you have replaced the roller brush with a new belt around it, pull the belt a few times to make sure that the brush spins while you are pulling it, to ensure that the belt is not pinched, and is spinning freely.

I hope this helps. Here's a video showing how to replace the belt on a Hoover Windtunnel Self Propelled model; Feel free to email me if you'd like to send me the model number of your vacuum, this way I can be a little more specific, and give you part numbers. I have all belts for all vacuums in stock. Email; 1-866-468-2288. You may also chat with me by going to our website,, and clicking in the top right part of the page. Thanks!

Check brush roller is spinning & that belt has not snapped.
Check behind brush roller for blockages, Check clear pipe for rips or splits.
