HOW TO CHANGE A BELT


Hi there...You will need a Phillips screwdriver to get the bottom cover off.Remove the screws and then remove the bottom cover.Clean out any excess dirt in the general area of the roller bar and motor assembly area.Place one end of the belt over the steel shaft of the motor and then roll the other end of the belt on to the end of the roller bar.placing the belt on the top of the roller bar and roll the bar slowly and feed the belt onto the roller bar until it is completely in place.Replace the bottom cover and put all the screw back in.
Plug your vacuum in and turn it on with the roller bar off the floor, in other words let it run for 10 seconds until you put it on the carpet allowing the belt to position itself properly on the roller bar.

Beater bar not turning


The number one cause of the "beater bar" (or brush roller) not rotating is a broken belt.

The number two cause of brushes not rotating is that something is jammed & wound around the roller, preventing it from rotating.

For the belt: If you remove the screws holding the bottom plate, you should see one (or maybe two) short, wide rubber belt(s) that goes around the roller.

If this is broken, it's easy to replace. They do break because of age and wear. One of the leading causes of breakage is when the roller gets something - a curtain cord, for example - wrapped around it. If you don't immediately shut off the vacuum & remove the cord, the belt will continue to try to turn the roller (which can't turn), and this generates a lot of heat in just a few seconds.


You can find belts at places like Sears, Home Depot, or your local vacuum shop.

For just the roller: Turn the vacuum over on its side and inspect the roller. Will it turn? Can you see something wound around it that's jamming it? While you here, take a minute and clean the roller... including using scissors or a knife to snip & remove wound hairs & threads. A clean and healthy roller will help to keep your belt happy!

How to install broken belt


Why would you want to put in a broken belt?

Turn the machine upside down. There are two clamps that hold the sole plate on, un click then. This will reveal the 'belt alley' where the belt runs from the motor to the roller. Lift the roller out of the slots. Take this time to clean all the hair and threads off the roller.

Put the new belt over the wooden pulley on the roller and put it almost back in. Put the other end of the belt over the motor shaft. Stretch the belt by returning the roller to its slot. Put the sole plate back on - snap the clips - Presto.

Simple

Thanks for your question today.

I have the ultimate G The belt is on, new bag, vacuum runs but no roller rotation and minimal if any suction????


On the right side of your vacuum head, there is a green belt indicator light. If when the unit is powered on and this light is not lighting up, you have a broken belt, or you didnt properly latch the belt in place.

a) Broken belt- you can use the belt from your shampoo'er if you have one, otherwise your nearest Kirby distributor has them for a couple bucks

b) As for the suction, the Kirby has 2 motors. 1 motor is for the cleaning of the floor, the other motor (where you see the vent on the left side) is for keeping the unit cool to expand the life, which btw average life of a kirby is 20yrs and they all come with a lifetime refurbishing plan. If your not getting any suction check the boot of the bag where it hooks onto the unit for any clogging

After shampooing carpet vaccumed worked just fine, tried to turn on next day and no power will not turn on.


Make sure the bag assembly is fully attached and snapped in place. Wet the rubber gasket on top of the motor exhaust if necessary. If the bag (or head) are not correctly installed, a safety switch prevents operation.

I have a dirt devil featherlite plus and all of the sudden it started pushing hard and smells hot. I cleaned the roller, changed the bag, checked the belt. The belt is a little wore, but not bad.


If it is pushing hard then you still have a belt problem. It may not be broken but the belt is stretched out too long and will not turn the roller brush fast enough to make it push easy.
