Replacing brush roller on my KIrby g6 limited edition

I bought a new brush roller but when I put it back together the little green is okay for a while and then it flickers and goes away when you lower the unit to the carpet.

Changing belt on electrolux precision vacuum el8805

Remove the cover plate over the brush. some simple pull or drop down. What ever. Once exposed, the brush (Roller) will need to be pulled away from the frame sides. The brush ends are generally inserted in to plastic or rubber end plugs and must be pulled away from the case. Once away, the belt; is in one piece needs to be removed. One end is still around the vacuum motor shaft. Lit that off and discard it. Place a new drive belt at one end around the motor. Pull it down and attach the other potion to the brush roller and press the roller back in place. There is little movement of the Belt, and it must be tight, thus you may need to use e screwdriver to lift the roller in place.

When we changed the belt the new belt broke right away and the brush roller wouldn't spin. My husband cleaned off the roller and got it moving slowly again, but when we went to re-attach everythin

the thing you call wheels are actually called roller bearings that fit at both ends of the brush-roll there probably seized up you can get a new brush-roll with bearings from the link below.

Brush doesn't move

Your belt is broken and needs to be replaced. Turn this brush side up. Unscrew the cover plate and you will see where the belt goes. Pull out roller, put on new belt, put back together and there you go.

Belt broke how do i chane this

Lay it down on its side, unscrew the cover over the brushes (don't lose them). You may have to pull the brushes out depending where the belt goes. Slip the belt on where it goes and put everything back together. The roller may be a little hard to put back in because of the new belt being tight but it will go on with a litte pushing. Good luck. Mine breaks all the time so I have it down to an art on mine. Just takes a few minutes.

How to change belt on eureka whirlwind; what tool do I need

You will first need to remove the hood to gain access to the belt and brush roller. Turn the machine upside down, place the handle on the floor and the base on a counter. You will find several screws that hold on the hood, remove them. Turn the machine back to the upright position and remove the hood. On the right hand side,if your looking the front you will find where the belt goes. At the back you will find a silver shaft sticking out, put the new belt on there first. Then put the brush roller through the belt so it is in the carved out section of the brush roller. Then grab the brush roller by each end and stretch the belt till the brush roller fits back into the base. Turn the brush roller 3 compleat turns backwards and 3 forward to seat the belt in the proper position.
Then put back on the hood.
