My belt keeps breaking too, but worse is that I can't find out the size for replacing. Who knows the size I need for the Eureka Power Paw?

Make sure the roller and turbine bushings are clear of obstructions (hair, etc) and spin without excess resistance. As for a lack of barrier or belt guide, make sure that the bushing blocks on either end of the roller (and turbine, but most importantly the roller) are installed identical to each other (otherwise the roller may be in on an angle causing the belt to mis-track). Possibly a part may be missing or improperly installed, but not likely. What's important to remember is Eureka (Electrolux Homecare Products) designed the Power Paw as a cheap, quick source of income to add onto their uprights to cash into the ever-lucrative market of pet owners dealing with pet hair. Like their upright vacuums, Eureka/lux know extremely well the importance of designing their product with a very FINITE life-expectancy, and hence expecting this product to be anything of a long-term or durable solution is evidence only of you having been mislead by marketing. Of all the turbine-driven tools in use today, this one is the most inexpensive, disposable I've had the pleasure of working with. I got one free when they hit the scene. I took it back to work still in the package after seeing its track record evolve.

Long-term solution if you love these turbine-type tools? (and you should, they're great and solve major issues. I own several different ones and am very attached to them as attachments!). Go to a vacuum store and find a robust, long-life version of what these little things are trying to be. They're in a higher dollar-range, but so's a Power Paw if you start replacing it every few months. Ask for one made by Wessel-Werk. German engineering, been around for decades. The made-in-china knock-offs are better than the power paw, but if you're up for it, the actual tool made by Wessel is the benchmark by miles. The only thing possibly comparable in long-term quality and durability is called a RugRat by guys in our industry, and sold by Vacuflo and Kirby and such for decades and decades now. Most vacuum vendors should be able to hook you up. :)

The little gear that turns the belt (the teeth of the belt and gear mesh) broke, and I can't find this gear. I'm writing this because maybe there is something wrong with your gear.

Can you tell me how to change the belt on my eureka AS3001A vacuum. It is belt 75914 for the pet power paw attachment. Please help,


Swivel the collar at the smaller end where it attaches to the vacuum which will allow the clear plastic cover to come off which will allow you to pull out the brushroll and belt to replace it. Reverse to reassemble.

How do you replace the belt on the pet power paw vacuum


1. Pry off adjustable clear cover with flathead screwdriver.
2. Unscrew 2 Philips screws holding power paw together.
3. Place tips of needle nose pliers into the two holes on each of the black round pieces on the ends of either end of the roller. Twist and the black pieces will release.
4. Remove roller, use needle nose pliers or awl to dig out any hair wrapped up in the roller or especially the ends of the roller at the metal pins.
5. Replace belt and put everything back together in the same order you took it apart.

That means that the belt2_bing.gif is starting to wear. When the belt starts to stretch it can't turn the roller brush against the resistance of the carpet and therefore doesn't pick up well. You simply need to change the belt. Here is a link to the belt you need and to the manual:

My Eureka Boss vacuum belt keeps breaking


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.

Drive belt ; whirlewind litespeed.


There is nothing but the motor shaft. The belt rides on the shaft and around the brush assembly on the other end. The belts fail if the brush assembly gets jammed, for example from a rug ot debris. If this occurs you should immediately turn off the unit,unplug the power cord, and clear the jam. Also occasionally cleaning the brush and being sure the bearings on each end turn freely will help prolong belt life. The brush assemblies also look to be available. lysager@gmail.com

Smell/suction


The brushroll may spin when looking at it but stops when pressure of the floor is applied. The belts stretch, so they look fine but are not. The smell - if it's a rubber smell - would also be the belt. Some, or most, brushrolls can get hair in the ends that could also cause a smell and belt problem.
