I couldn't understand the other response so I'll put my two cents worth out there.
Lower the handle all the way, flip the vacuum over and use a flat screwdriver in the slots as shown to remove the beater bar cover. On the top cover pry off the height adjustment slider.   With the screw driver pry along the underside of the top cover.  You'll see four points where the underside of the cover hooks over a mating point on the bottom chassis.  The top of the vacuum will practically fall off once you've dislodged the hooking points.  From there is easy to see how to change the belt by taking it off the motor armature and pulling out the beater bar and belt.  Reassemble the same way.  The cover goes on almost automatically and clips in place.  Put the height adjustment slider back on and snap the beater bar cover back in place.  That's it.  Cheers

Turn the vac. over, remove the bottom plate covering the brush roll, then on the bottom of the top cover, on each side there should be 2 slots when you can put a flat blade scredriver, pry up to release the tabs holding the cover on. The know will come off also when you do this, just put it back on when the put the cover back on. Put the belt on the brush roll and feed it thru the opening and stretch to put over the motor shaft. The top cover, push down to lock it.

My dirt devil ultra vision won't pick up anything and the brush does not turn, also smells like rubber is burning. What should I do? I checked to see if it was clogged and the belt is not broken.


Sounds to me like the belt has gone or at least stretched so it is slipping on the spindle, take the brush out and check for hair or anything wound round where the belt grips...don't know this particular vac but usually belts are not too difficult to change. Get a new belt from your hardware shop

Pictures on how to change belt on a wildcat vacuum
Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. Not knowing the brand name and model number for the vacuum but I can give you a generic way of changing the belt. You 1st need to remove the bottom plate by screws, levers or clips, then you can get @ the belt, if not then you should remove the top cover and then you can get @ the belt. 1st remove the belt from the brushroll and install the new belt on the pulley side of the brushroll and then use a belt puller or a screwdriver with a bend on the end and then stretch the belt onto the motor pulley and then track the belt in a straight line so that is running in a straight line. Replace the bottom plate and the belt change should be done. Please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area.

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.

NEED TO REPLACE VACUUM BELT.
Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. One thing when you request to replace the vacuum belt, we need to know the actual brand name and model # of the vacuum in order to give you correct information on a how to change the belt, this is just an example of an average belt change. Generally you turn the vacuum upside down to see the bottom plate, and then you remove the bottom plate by screws, clips or levers. Then you can remove the bottom plate – if not then the top cover will come off instead. Then you can remove the old belt and install the new belt. 1st. hook the new belt around the brushroll pulley first, then reinstall the brushroll, then use a belt puller or a screwdriver with a hook on the end to pull or stretch the belt onto the motor pulley, then track the belt in a straight line until it is running in a straight line. then re-install the bottom plate or top cover. 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.

I don't know how to change the brush. HELP Kirby Legend II vacuums

Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. To change the Kirby brushroll is to dial the belt off of the fan pulley and unlock the head to the bell housing, the head will come off. Then you turn the head over and remove the bottom plate by 2 levers the brushroll will be attached. Remove the brushroll and replace it with the new one with the screw head facing down to the carpet. Replace the bottom plate and install a new belt. The belt install on a Kirby is to raise the height adjustment to the highest level and then dial the belt off counter clockwise so it is loose and not on the fan pulley, release the top lever on the bell housing, then remove the bottom plate and unhook the brushroll on one side, slide the old belt off and then slide the new one on, replace the brushroll with the screws facing the carpet and re-hook the bottom plate on the Kirby. Then take the bell housing and hook that back on to the Kirby and lock it down. Then dial the belt on clockwise all the way and the belt should be on the fan pulley. The belt should be ready to go, plug in your Kirby and then do the step down on the vacuum height adjustment until the tone changes, then try to see id it picks up, if not go one more height adjustment and that should be the correct setting.

How do I change belt for a Hoover Futura upright vacuum

Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. The Hoover Futura has a bottom plate of which can be released by removing screws, clamps or levers and the bottom plate will come off – if not then the top cover will come off and the belt will be exposed. Then, cut the old belt off, then lift the pulley side of the brushroll up and slide on the new belt then replace the brushroll in the brushroll holder. Then use a belt puller or screwdriver with a hook on the end then pull or stretch the belt onto the motor pulley once that has been done then track the belt which means to roll the belt so that it runs straight and then re-install the bottom plate. 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.

Replace belt

Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. The suggested belt change is every 4 to 6 months if the belt is a flat belt and to store the extra belts in a Ziploc bag in the refrigerator. As far as your question I would need more information about the brand name and model # to instruct you as per the belt change, other wise I don’t know how to instruct you as per the how to install the belt on your particular vacuum cleaner. Or, you can check with your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or to contact the manufacturer’s website and or phone #. 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.

How do you change the belt on a Hoover Elite

Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. the Hoover Elite belt change can be done from the bottom under the bottom plate by removing clips or screws and the bottom plate should come off and then you can get @ the belt. 1st, lift the brushroll out from the pulley end on the side – remove the belt and slide on the new belt and re-install the new belt on the pulley side. Then use a belt puller or a screwdriver that may or may not have a hook or bend on the end and then stretch the belt onto the motor pulley and the track the belt in a straight line, then /2 that time replace the bottom plate. If you cannot get @ the belt from the bottom, then the top cover will come off and use the steps above.

I require a new drive belt for my upright vacuum cleaner


Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. In order to change your belt I would need to know the brand name and the model # in order to give you the correct information to change your belt, so a little bit more information needed as to what you have and then I can direct you in the belt change. Normally there are screws in the bottom of the vacuum and once you remove the screws or clips you can either change it from the bottom or the top cover will lift off and then you can get @ the belt from the top. The average and recommended belt change for a flat belt is every 4 to 6 months and if you have a geared belt it is once a year for the best cleaning. 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.

No belt


There are two screws on the top side just behind the Brush housing. Remove these two screws, one on each side, and the top plate can be removed. Then you can follow the directions above.
Hope that helps.
