SOURCE: Simplicity F3500-- how do I

To change the belt on the Simplicity F3500, unplug the vacuum and turn it upside down. There are two tabs (one on each side) behind the beater bar that hold the cover on the vacuum. Press these tabs inward and lift the bottom plate away from the unit.

Then remove the brushroll and the worn or broken belt from the pulley on the side of the brush roll and the drive shaft. Loop the new belt over the driveshaft and the brushroll. Replace the brushroll in the housing and turn it by hand. Make sure that the belt is seated on the driveshaft and pulley with no twists. Also check that all of the rotating parts will move.

Then put the bottom cover back on by aligning the back hinges and then pressing the plate down until both sides click.

For pictures of the cover removal process, look at page 15 in the manual. The direct link is http://www.simplicityvac.com/about-my-simplicity/manuals/FreedomManual_Update0803.pdf .

I hope this helps.

I have a self propelled lawn mower and the the belt that propells the wheels is loose, do I need to replace it or is there a way to tighten the tension.


Cathy, there is a way to adjust belt tension on some models whether it is by the cable or a slotted bracket where the idler wheel is mounted, depends on make and model. If you have your manual check in it for belt adjustment. Could be stretched belt, stretched cable, worn/oil on pulley, seized tensioner, stretched/broken spring on tensioner,etc.

I have a Simplicity 7 Series Commercial vacuum that does not pick up well when pushing the vacuum foreward. Picks up just fine when pulling it backwards. Have installed new belt, roller brushes, and brush...


Make sure the bottom plate is installed properly. If it is not seated well the brush roll may not be engaging fully with the carpet. Make sure the wheels on the bottom plate work properly.

Simplicity freedom vacuum has a burnt rubber smell


If the belt is continually wearing out I would think that the brush cylinder is not free to rotate. Take the belt off and ensure that the brush cylinder moves freely. If is does not, then you need to investigate why - probably something wound round it that has jammed it.

Self Propel doesn't work on Hoover Wind Tunnel


Your self propel wire could be broken. Lean the vacuum back like you were using it. If you stand in front of the vacuum look down and to your left. When you move the selp propel button you should see a wire move. If not then it's broken.

Why wont the self propelled brush on the hoover wind tunnel work. large belt is ok. the small belt looks 0k.


no don't do that,have a little patience.check where the self propelled assembly is and see if anything got in there,something might be loose and the teeth are meeting each other.thats a good vavuum.i have 2 but their not self propelled.try taking the belt off the self propelled machanisn and try it again.if it works then something is keeping the propelled machanism from working.dig a little deeper,what do you have to lose?

Install self propelled belt

Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. Usually the self propelled vacuum have 2 belts and you should replace them both 2 the same time 1st the self propelled belt and then the brushroll belt. Normally you would hook the belt on the pulley side of the brushroll or self propelled unit and then stretch the belt onto the motor pulley side of the motor using a belt puller or a screwdriver with a bend on the end for pulling and or stretching either belt onto the motor pulley. If you have a problem please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer.

So if you need further assistance, please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or in the yellow pages, or contact the factory phone number or website to further assist you with your questions.
Thanks, Don the Vac Man
