First take off the cover on the left side oif the top cover, then turn it over, remove the screw holding the red lock and put the cap and brush roll out, remove the cap, remove the cogged belt, then you can put the new pump belt thru that slot, put over the pulley on the pump and then stretch it to go over the motor shaft. Then put back together.

My Kenmore model 116 33300300C smells like burning when we use it. The bag has been replaced


If it is a burning rubber smell it may be the belt slipping. Make sure your brushes are clean and spin freely and then put the belt back on and see if that helps.

Belt burned up (first time); installed new belt but that starts to burn also; approx. 2 years old


Sounds like the brush that the belt is supposed to turn is bound up tight. Need to remove the brush and clean all debris from it. Where you can get at the center rod for the brush, the rod that the brush spins around, clean the ends and add some WD40, being sure not to get it on the belt. This should remedy the problem of the belts burning as long as the belt is put on correctly.

Got Dirt Devil Featherlite,keeps burning the belt out immediately and there is only one way to put the belt on...have put on 4 new belts.....what up?


Hi There,

When a belt breaks immediately after installing it, this can ONLY mean one of two things. The first is that the belt was put back on incorrectly, and it may be pinched underneath of the beater bar. This would cause it to break immediately, but I seriously doubt after 4 belts that you put the belt on wrong all 4 times.

The second, and more probable cause is that your roller brush has gone bad. This could be why the belt broke in the first place. In order to test to make sure the brush is bad, unscrew the bottom plate, and remove the brush like you were changing the belt.

Hold the brush at the very end on both sides, using only your finger tips. While holding just the bearing caps, try spinning the bar with your thumbs. Does the brush spin freely in your hands? It should spin completely around 4-5 times on each spin. If the brush will not spin, or if you feel any resistance to it spinning, this is the reason why your belt continues to break.

If the brush can not spin, the motor shaft will continue to try and spin the belt, but since the brush doesn't spin, and the belt doesn't move, the motor shaft will just burn right through the back end of the belt.

If your machine is actually the model that's listed on this Fixya repair page, the Dirt Devil Featherlite model M085845, then your machine uses the following roller brush:
Dirt Devil Plastic Brush Roll for Model 085845 Part # 2-881020-000

The next time that change the belt, install the brush back into the machine, but this time pull up on the belt towards the brush to make sure that the belt spins freely, and spins the brush as well. If the belt doesn't spin the brush, there's some issue, and the belt will break as soon as you turn the machine on.

I hope this helped you. If you find out that you don't need a new brush, feel free to use the comment section here on the repair page and let me know, I'd be happy to walk you through some more advanced diagnosing. If you found this helpful, please be so kind and rate my repair and / or leave feedback for me.

Thanks so much,

I replaced the belt on my bissell model number 3576-2, but when i put it back together, the brushes wont move...the belt tries to move, but the rubber just burns..


something is binding ... i dont know what ... you will have to remove all parts and reinstall again. Make sure the bearings spin on the brush when it is out ... remove all hair and string.

good luck ... im sure it is someething simple.

Your belt is worn and that is why there is a burnt rubber smell. You need to change your belt. You can find a replacement belt and instructions here:

Kirby sentria belt install


Make sure to follow this sequence (starting from the nozzle off and green arrows on the knob and label matching):
1. Turn the knob all the way to match the red arrows (make sure that as you are doing so the hook inside of the nozzle hoes through the belt and stretches it - you will feel that knob is prettu hard to turn)
2. Put the nozzle on the unit and fix it in the place with the latch.
3. Turn the knob back to match green arrows
