Cracked On the bottom of my vacuum, the area around the belt housing is cracked. It looks as though the whole plastic bottom piece would have to be replaced just because of the crack.

I'm afraid that you will have to replace the base unit, part #62577, would sell for around $25. Once it cracks, then it is weak and will affect the brush roll and belt.

The belt on my oreck XL 3600 is slipping. I replaced it with the one that came with the vacuum. It smells bad when we use it and the brush sometime doesn't spin.


Usually the belt that's stored in the groove on the bottom of the body is the correct one for the unit, and doesn't require much stretching to get it into the channel. If yours was in a bag of some sort then all bets are off.
I'll start as though you were installing one you had just bought from a dealer. Remove the bottom plate so that you can get to the motor and brush roll housing. This can usually be achieved by lay the unit out flat either on a table or the floor. With your NEW belt in hand, remove any pieces of the old belt and discard them. Remove the brush roll from it's housing and install the new belt over the drive end of the motor. Pull the opposite end up and over the drive portion of the brush roll. Now you'll have to maneuver the bearing shrouds into their respective support areas, usually by levering the drive end up and over the right end and then the idler end. Once done, rotate the brushroll by hand to make sure the belt is in the correct place. Replace the bottom plate, install the screws and you should be ready to vac.

How do I change the belt on a dirt devil ultra vision vacuum cleaner


I just changed mine and I will be blunt. First off, the design is **** on this vacume, secondly the belt was designed to break on the rusty carbon steel pully rod. Ok now that I've vented we will get down to business. On the bottom of the vacume you will find a plastic housing thats covering the brush. It will have 4 screws around the brush plus one above them. The housing itself is shaped like an L. Remove all the screws and expose the bare brush. This was not my case but there should be a belt holding the brush to a small steel pully rod in the top part of the L indention. If not then just locate an indention on the brush where the belt will be placed and look directly beneath that to find the pully rod (probably about 6 inches beneath the indention on the brush). wrap your new belt around the metal pully rod and then take out the brush. Wrap the other end of the belt around the indention on the brush and pull up hard and replace the brush in its vacume housing. This will take some effort as the belt has to be stretched. When finished replace the housing cover with the five screws and boom you're done.

I have a Eureka 4800 series the Boss upright with a bag and Hepa filter. I love it! I was just vacuuming with the hose part and all was well and then suddenly the lower brush came on and a "burning" smell...


I had the same problem. Take out the old belt if possible. Remove the 4 screws inside the filter and the 3 on the front of that housing. pull out the foam around the motor. carefully pull out the suction tube that is press fit against the motor. then you can pull the motor out. place it on its side, shaft side up and grab your hammer. tap down the metal sleeve that has been rubbing against the plastic housing. reinstall everything including a new belt and you should be good to go.

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.

My vaccuum has no more suction


There is no drive belt on a progressive drive vacuum. It is direct drive meaning it is attached via the motor. No vacuum means no air flow somewhere in the unit. Torn bag,Wrong bag, pluged filter under bag.Make sure the opening in the bag is the correct size,too big and it will not seal. Make sure when you close the housing it seals also. No housing seal no vacuum. Kenmore vacuums tend to be plastic housings. Cracks are comon in the wheel housing area. Check there first. Plastic expoxy will work with this fix if so needed.

Need help on to set up belt for shampoo for


Lift the light bulb housing up and you will find a latch that will rotate to release the front agitator housing and remove it from the machine. On the bottom of that housing, there are two latches that secure the bottom plate that covers the roller. Remove the plate and the roller will come out. Be sure to notice that the roller has a magnet at one end that lines up with the indicator that shows you when the roller is turning - it's the little green light that glows while you are vacuuming. The roller needs to go back in the same way it came out. O.K. Take your new belt and position it around the middle of the roller and drop the roller back into place and replace the bottom plate. On the front of the housing, there is a big square "knob" and you can rotate that piece. If you look inside the hole on the other side of the agitator housing, you will see that there is an arm that moves with the square knob. The end of this arm will catch the belt and with a little effort, the knob will rotate and lift the belt into position for replacing the housing back on to the machine. once you have the housing back on the machine and secure, you rotate the square knob back around and the belt will sit down on the drive shaft. If you look at the top of the agitator housing just above where the knob is, you will see a red and a green arrow which indicate which way the knob turns to do the "remove" belt or "replace" belt. I hope this helps. Once you do it properly, it actually is quite easy.

Changing the belt


Have you pulled the roller out? Once you take the bottom plate off, the roller should slide out of its slot. Then you should easily be able to access the motor shaft.
