Do you have the latch in the wrong position? try and hook the belt with front dial and this should work for you.

Replacing a belt on the unit. How do you get the belt onto the spool?


Hi,

Place the belt on the motor shaft then slide the beater bar into the belt. Center the belt where it should be on the bar, then insert the bar into the end sockets. It'll be tight. Replace the base blate. Done!

Belt


Hi. This isn't a hard repair at all.... Unplug your vacuum. Turn the vacuum beater bar side up. Locate the catches or screws that hold the plate on that covers the beater bar. Remove the plate. The beater bar sits in sockets where it attaches to the vacuum, so remove carefully, making note how it comes out. This will make reassembly much easier. Place your new belt on the motor shaft, then onto the beater bar while you replace the beater bar back into the sockets. Test your work by revolving the beater bar a bit by hand. Reinstall the cover plate. That's it!

Regards! --W/D--

MY VACUUM IS NOT PICKING UP


Hi This is quite complicated but I'll try and simplify this for you:
If this is a Panasonic upright then there are two drive belts as you know. Once you take off the sole plate (where the beater bar is) by undoing screws and the beater bar is looking at you, you would have to take off the smaller belt motor pulley first before putting on a new larger drive belt. If the smaller belt is still intact and you only need to replace the larger belt, you'll still have to take off both belts to put on the new drive belt.
Motor pulley belt has to be taken off first then the old drive belt, then grasp the beater and slide on new larger drive belt before having to attach the motor pulley belt and then the larger belt onto the motor pulley. Once all belts have been attached ensure that the beater bar is pushed in correctly before you screw the sole plate back on.

Floor Attachment


Try this,

With the floor nozzle off the machine spin the belt lifter around until the red arrows match. If you look at the side that attaches to the vacuum you should be able to see the belt up on the hook. If is not on the hook offf the machine you will never get the belt on. Once the belt is on the hook attach the floor nozzle to the front of the machine. At this point you need to spin the belt lifter back to where the green arrows match. Oh and another suggestion make sure your hieght adjuster the pedals with arrows are all the way up. Hopefully that helps you out.

Attaching the Belt


Leslie,
Rotate the square knob on the front of the attachment to the "Belt On" position (green marker). Insert your fingers in the attachment port (the round opening on the back where the "hook" is) and position the belt so it's centered and as high up as it will go (that's usually just below the center of the opening. THEN rotate the square knob on the front to the "Belt Off" position. You should feel the belt tighten up and the know harder to rotate.

The belt handle should be turned so the red arrow is lined up. Then make sure the belt is hooked on the inner assembly handle. Reconnect the vaccum assembly to vaccum and turn handle to allow green arrow to align and the belt is hooked on motor rod anmd your ready to vacuum.
