How do I change the belt on a dirt devil ultra vision vacuum cleaner


I just changed mine and I will be blunt. First off, the design is **** on this vacume, secondly the belt was designed to break on the rusty carbon steel pully rod. Ok now that I've vented we will get down to business. On the bottom of the vacume you will find a plastic housing thats covering the brush. It will have 4 screws around the brush plus one above them. The housing itself is shaped like an L. Remove all the screws and expose the bare brush. This was not my case but there should be a belt holding the brush to a small steel pully rod in the top part of the L indention. If not then just locate an indention on the brush where the belt will be placed and look directly beneath that to find the pully rod (probably about 6 inches beneath the indention on the brush). wrap your new belt around the metal pully rod and then take out the brush. Wrap the other end of the belt around the indention on the brush and pull up hard and replace the brush in its vacume housing. This will take some effort as the belt has to be stretched. When finished replace the housing cover with the five screws and boom you're done.

Got Dirt Devil Featherlite,keeps burning the belt out immediately and there is only one way to put the belt on...have put on 4 new belts.....what up?


Hi There,

When a belt breaks immediately after installing it, this can ONLY mean one of two things. The first is that the belt was put back on incorrectly, and it may be pinched underneath of the beater bar. This would cause it to break immediately, but I seriously doubt after 4 belts that you put the belt on wrong all 4 times.

The second, and more probable cause is that your roller brush has gone bad. This could be why the belt broke in the first place. In order to test to make sure the brush is bad, unscrew the bottom plate, and remove the brush like you were changing the belt.

Hold the brush at the very end on both sides, using only your finger tips. While holding just the bearing caps, try spinning the bar with your thumbs. Does the brush spin freely in your hands? It should spin completely around 4-5 times on each spin. If the brush will not spin, or if you feel any resistance to it spinning, this is the reason why your belt continues to break.

If the brush can not spin, the motor shaft will continue to try and spin the belt, but since the brush doesn't spin, and the belt doesn't move, the motor shaft will just burn right through the back end of the belt.

If your machine is actually the model that's listed on this Fixya repair page, the Dirt Devil Featherlite model M085845, then your machine uses the following roller brush:
Dirt Devil Plastic Brush Roll for Model 085845 Part # 2-881020-000

The next time that change the belt, install the brush back into the machine, but this time pull up on the belt towards the brush to make sure that the belt spins freely, and spins the brush as well. If the belt doesn't spin the brush, there's some issue, and the belt will break as soon as you turn the machine on.

I hope this helped you. If you find out that you don't need a new brush, feel free to use the comment section here on the repair page and let me know, I'd be happy to walk you through some more advanced diagnosing. If you found this helpful, please be so kind and rate my repair and / or leave feedback for me.

Thanks so much,

Vaccum not turning or sucking


Hello,

It definitely sounds like your belt is broken. If something gets vacuumed up into the brushes, and prevents the brushes from spinning, the motor will continue to try and spin the belt and the brush, but since the brushes can't spin, this will burn right through most belts.

Especially since you mentioned a sock being sucked up, and the roller brush not spinning, this is a tell tale sign of your belt needing replacing.

Here's what you'll need to complete this repair:

- Phillips Head Screw Driver
- Hoover Windtunnel Replacement Belt, Non-Self Propelled, Hoover Part # 38528033
- Depending on how long the sock was stuck in the brush, you may need a new roller brush as well. The roller brush for your model is Hoover Part # 48414110. Here's a direct link for the roller brush for your vacuum on our website:
http://www.govacuum.com/generic-hoover-windtunnel-tempo-fusion-upright-12-inch-replacement-roller-brush-hoover-part-number-4.html

If you have the Hoover Tempo Widepath vacuum that you listed the repair under, then here's a direct link back to our website, govacuum dot com, to the exact belt for your Hoover Tempo:
http://www.govacuum.com/agbelhoovpar9.html

Now, once you have a new belt, this repair is pretty straight forward. I'll explain step by step what you'll need to do to change the belt.

Step 1. Make sure your vacuum cleaner is unplugged. The easiest way to change the belt in your vacuum is to turn the machine upside down, so the handle is on the ground holding it up, then lean the vacuum over a counter top or work bench.

Step 2. Remove the bottom plate of your vacuum cleaner. You'll see on the bottom of the vacuum 4 screws that are located on each corner of the brush, remove all 4 screws, and lift up on the bottom plate that covers the roller brush.

Step 3. After removing the bottom plate, you should now be able to access the roller brush completely, and you'll probably also notice that the belt on the right side of the roller brush is broken. You may just remove the broken belt completely and throw it away. Lift straight up on the roller brush itself to remove it from the vacuum.

Step 4. Test the roller brush. After something gets stuck in the brushes, and it causes the belt to burn, there's also a good possibility that your roller brush may need replacing as well. Also the roller brush will wear down over time, and the brushes will wear down as well, greatly reducing the cleaning ability of your vacuum. You'll want to test your roller brush, to ensure that it spins freely. If it doesn't, then as you install the new belt, it's possible it could also break immediately. To test the roller brush, remove it completely from the vacuum. Holding just the end caps of the bar with your fingertips, try to spin the brush in your hands using your thumbs. This is how it should look when you test your brush (the roller brush is to a different machine, but testing it will work the same):

3a76171.jpg
The roller brush should spin at least 3 or 4 times in your hands on each spin. If the brush will not spin at all, or you feel some resistance when spinning it, then you'll probably want to go ahead and replace the roller brush as well at this point.

Step 5. Once you have your new belt, and new roller brush (if needed), it's time to install them. First wrap one side of the belt over the metal motor pulley in the back of the vacuum, opposite the roller brush. Now after you have one side of the belt wrapped around this metal pin, put the roller brush through the other end of the belt. Using the roller brush as leverage, stretch the belt with the roller brush inside of it back into the roller brush tray. You'll notice that on the left bearing cap on the end of the roller brush, there's a little rectangular shaped notch. Make sure that the rectangular notch is vertical, and slide this end into the agitator housing first, then fit the other side (circular notch) into the housing. With a little bit of elbow grease, you'll be able to stretch the brush with the belt back into place.

Step 6. Test the belt and the brush before putting the bottom plate back on. To make sure that belt and brush are properly installed, pull the belt forward towards the brush, and make sure that the brush spins while you're pulling the belt. If the brush does not spin, then either the belt is pinched underneath of the roller brush, or the brush is bad / installed incorrectly. Make sure that the brush spins freely before reinstalling the bottom the plate, otherwise the belt will burn and break again as soon as you turn on the vacuum.

Step 7. Reinstall the bottom plate, and screw down the four screws. Now you can turn the vacuum on, and make sure that the brush is spinning. If the brush is not spinning, repeat the steps above to make sure that the belt and brush were put in correctly.

That should fix your problem. Ideally you should change your belt at least once a year. Even if the belt doesn't break, it will stretch out. When the belt is stretched out, it will not pick up as well as a new belt will.

If you have any problems, or questions about how to do it, please feel free to use the Clarification Request here on the Fixya repair page, and I'll be more then happy to answer any follow questions for you.

Here's a link to the owners manual for your model that will also give you diagrammed pictures of how to replace your belt.

Belt keeps burning and breaking


Hello There,

It sounds like you need to replace the roller brush. If your Bissell is breaking belts that fast, then that can only really mean one of two things. The first being that the belts are not being properly installed, and the roller brush is pinching the belt which causes the belt to break, but after 3 belts I doubt this to be the case.

Probably the more likely problem is that the brush roller's bearing have seized up. You may test this by removing the roller brush from the vacuum, and holding it with on your two pointer fingers holding the outside bearing caps of the brush, making sure not to touch the actual part that spins. Now try to spin the brush while holding the bearing caps with your pointer fingers. The brush should spin freely, and should revolve around 5-6 times with each spin. If the brush doesn't spin easily, then this is going to put a lot more stress on the belt.

You may try to remove the bearing caps on the ends by twisting them off, and visually inspect each side to make sure there is no hair or thread that's lodged inside the bearing cap. This will make the brush hard to spin, and can cause you to burn belts quickly like you have been. You may find the bearing caps will not come off. This indicates that your brush roll has worn out the bearings completely, and the bearing caps have melted to the bearings due to extreme heat. You will then need to replace the roller brush if this is the case, and it maybe the best solution for you if you have burned through 3 belts so quickly.

The roller brush for your Bissell (I'm assuming this is yours as this is where the repair was posted on Fixya) 6594 PowerForce upright uses Bissell roller brush part number; 203-1195. Here's a link if you need to purchase one;
http://www.govacuum.com/biclandpobar.html

I have uploaded the parts schematic and owners manual to the main Fixya page for your model as well. Sometimes it can take 24 hours for Fixya to publish this data, but please visit the link to these documents in 24 hours or less;
http://www.fixya.com/support/p49887-bissell_6594_powerforce_bagless_upright#manuals.

If your roller brush is good, then examine where the brush rests inside of the vacuum cleaner, this is called the agitator housing. Look at the sides of the agitator housing where the bearing caps rest. Do you see any visible damage on either side? Sometimes the brush can get so hot, it may melt the agitator housing on the sides where the brush rests, this will also cause the belts to burn very quickly.

I hope that this information is helpful to you. If none of these suggestions fixed your vacuum, please just add a comment, or request a clarification request here on Fixya, and I'll be happy to respond. If this was helpful, please be sure to rate the repair by clicking on the 4 thumbs up icons in the upper right hand corner.

How do you replace the belt


Check for a pair of screws at the outer edge of the brush housing area. On this unit I believe the unscrew form above. Then look for any others on the bottom plate below the the brush. Belts can break or burn thru. If your s has burned, clean the burned rubber from the motor shaft before replacing. Spin the brush roll, if it rolls smoothly remove it , place the belt over the motor shaft, then onto the brush and use the brush to pull into place.Check for hair and thread buildup at the end caps of the brush. The nylon caps pop off for cleaning.
