First check to see if the brush rolls freely with no belt in place. If not remove the brush roll and clean and lube the end caps. If the caps are nylon try to gently pop them off to inspect underneath.
Clean the motor shaft with extra fine wet dry sandpaper, then install the belt around the shaft and onto the brush before engaging the brush in it`s socket. Now use the brush to leverage into place.Check again for free smooth rotation, then replace the cover plate

Why are the belts burning and the brush not turning?


Check the ends of your brush roll. Most have bearings on the end and if one of those is locked up and will not turn it will burn the belt. Sometimes hair will get in the bearing area and will contribute to the bearing locking up.

Belts keep burning and breaking on turbopower 7100


If a roller brush does not rotate freely, the motor shaft spins in one place on the belt until it heats it up and breaks it. Roller brushes can become clogged on the ends, especially with pet hair. The solution is to remove the roller brush completely and inspect onder the endcaps, removing them if necessary to clean them completely. The roller brush should be reinstalled carefully, observing the upward orientation of the arrows on the end caps. Check operation before assuming that the problem has been solved

Why do the belts keep breaking


Hi there,

Well the problem happens due to the belt If the belt not installed correctly, the rubber belt will grate against one of the components in the roller brush housing. The friction of the belt against the housing produces a pungent burning odor. To correct this you need a right belt, each vacuum cleaner manufacturer produces specific belts for specific machines. An incompatible belt installed on the vacuum cleaner will cause the belt to break or burn.

Good Luck!!

Thanks for using FixYa!!

My belt is burning do I need anew belt and just align and clean brush. Motor sounds ok


Belts start burning because they've become too worn and loose to keep a good grip on the brush and motor shaft. You do need a new one. When replacing, ensure it's in the correct position by rotating the brush a few times. Make sure you've got the correct amount of tension on it. Too loose and the belt will slip and burn out again. Too tight may cause breakage as well as excessive stress on the motor.
It's often best to allow even a simple fix to be done by a service tech.

Vacuum Belt keep breaking


When your first belt burnt, the burnt plastics goes into the roller ends and then it dries off causing your roller to not turn or put more pressure on your belt. Until you clean that you will continue burning your belts soon after you put them in. You need to add a little bit of WD40 or any other type of lubricant after you remove the tar from the roller.

Makes a loud noise like a grinding noise then smokes comes out and it smells like burning rubber? When I take the (rod) brush off with the belt then run the vacuum there is no more noise? Please help me...


Your belt is worn and stretched and so it is slipping on the motor drive shaft. That is why it is noisy and smells like burning rubber. You simply need to replace the belt. You can get replacement belts here:

Vacuum keeps burning up belts Comment by campoclan, posted on May 02, 2008
I have a Kirby Sentra and have had problems since I bought it a few years ago with burning up belts. I go through at least two a month. What is wrong with it? I keep the roller clean each time I vacuum.

Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure.
Some Kirby vacuum in the brushroll have bushings and some have bearings and the bushing bind up and do not spin properly and I suggest to replace your brushroll with a genuine Kirby belts and brushroll of which would work the best for you performance wise. A suggested belt change depending on carpet can be every 3 to 4 months or 4 to 6 months and the brushroll when needed, some carpets are ******* the belts and they do require change more frequently. The rest should be fine. 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
