Wish you had given your model number, but most of these, there are 2 screws on the top cover, near the front, remove those and the top comes off, the belt and brush roll are exposed.

My Eureka Lite speed whirlwind has a bad odor when it runs.

It is either the filter or on the roller or belt.

Belt location

If you torn the macine over, at the bottom of the sweeper you will see the belt on on side. You have to take the bottom part apart and remove the brushes to replace the belt. I hope this helps.

Changing belt - Eureka Whirlwind 5740

I tried the website for manuals but no luck. I called the toll-free # 1-800-282-2886 and got a rep right away. I gave him the model and s/n (lower bottom on the back side) and he walked me thru it. For the model I have, there are 3 screws to remove - With the vacuum upright and standing facing it - there is on on the right and one on the left of the bottom cover and one on the left side near the hose intake. Remove those to get to the belt. I ordered the belt with him too - althought the belts were cheap ($2.99 for 2) the shipping was $8. If this didnt help - call the 800# - they were great.

Eukerka lite speed

There are 2 screws on the top cover, remove those and the cover comes off, then you can get to the brush roll and belt. Inspect the brush roll, make sure the ends turn freely, if not, then replace it also.

How to change belt on Eureka Whirlwind

On the top cover, there are holes at the front on both sides, there is a screw on each side in one of the holes. Take the out, and the cover should come off, then you can get to the brush roll and belt.
