Electrolux Z61a brush not rotating


There should be a rubber belt somewhere along that roller, probably in the middle, behind the bottom cover plate, Remove the plate. That belt may have just slipped off the motor shaft, but it may be broken.

The belt could possibly be installed in either of two ways. The motor shaft is not parallel to the beater bar (brushes), so the belt must twist to wrap around both the motor shaft and the beater bar. If it's twisted one direction, the beater bar will rotate the correct direction (as if drying to pull the vacuum forward). Twisted the wrong way, it'll rotate the opposite direction. Try it one way, then bump the power switch to verify that the brush is rotating the correct direction before putting the bottom cover plate back on.

Need to replace belt and cannot figure how to take it apart to get at the belt --- Took Screws off on the bottom but could not get to the belt


You have already removed the screws so lift the brush cover off. Then grasp rotating floor brush at both ends and lift. Clean strings,hair and other debris from rotating brush, paying close attention to the brush ends. Clean the debris from motor pulley and drive belt areas.Grasp old drive belt and remove from motor pulley. Place new drive belt over motor pulley and stretch other end over rotating floor brush in the space between the bristles. Place the ends of the rotating floor brush down into slots on the sides. Turn the rotating floor brush by hand several times in the direction of motor pulley. If installed properly, drive belt will center itself on rotating brush. Reposition brush cover and screw back into place. I hope that this helps you!

Cant figure out how to replace belt


Hi Sylvie,

It is fairly simple to change a belt on a vacuum. I'll explain.

First, Turn the vacuum upside down with the handle in the locked position. Remove the plate on the bottom. Sometimes it's held on by screws, sometimes by clips which you should pry off with a flat blade screwdriver and sometimes you can take them off easily with your thumbs.
You should be able to see the agitator brush and belt now. Use the straight screwdriver to take the brush off. Now you can slip the belt off. Clean the inside and the agitator brush.

If you have a new belt, slip it onto the motor, then onto the end of the agitator brush making sure the belt is tight. Replace the brush and give it a sping a couple of times to make sure the belt and brush are both on properly and all are working. Put the bottom plate back on.

Hope this helps. If it does, I'd surely appreciate your vote. Thanks for visiting with us.

Brush won't spin. Put it back on the ribbed belt


Make sure the driving motor (power on) is turning (without the belt attached). Make sure the brush turns freely when the belt is off (it's probably jammed with wound-up hair, thread, and other debris--remove the brush and clean/lightly oil the bearings). Check the tension of the belt which should be fairly firm--replace if sloppy. Rotate the motor shaft by hand when everything is back together and make sure the brush can be driven without the belt trying to jump off. Hope this helps!

Have eureka 9734 replaced belt, put back together,brush rotates well but vacuum is not picking up anything, no suction.


It sounds like the machine is clogged. Check the port behind the belt and any and all hoses for obstructions and remove.

Changing belts


Turn vac over, remove the 4 screws holding the bottom plate covering the brush roll. There are 2 belts, one is a V belt ( 38528034) for the brush roll, the other is a flat belt (38528035) that goes from the larger pulley and the motor shat, put it on the motor shaft then stretch it to go over the pulley.

Take off the bottom plate, look in the bottom to see if there are any screw, could be 2 of them, then from the bottom there is a slot on each side of the top cover, using a flat screwdriver, insert blade into the slot and pry up to release the locking tabs. Belt # is 38528040. Put the bell over the brush roll, put belt thru opening and put atound the motor shaft, put back together.

Changing belt on vacuum cleaner


If you can't see the motor shaft then you will have to take the top cover off. Some have a couple of scres to remove from the bottom. Then is a slot on each side, from the bottom put a flat blade screwdrive in the slot and push out and up to release the locking tabs. The knob may pop off so watch for that coming off. Put the belt on the brush roll, then feed the belt up thru the opening and stretch it to go over the motor shaft. Put back together.

Holding the ends of the brush roll, you should be able to spin it. if not then the brush is bad and will have to replaced. Part # is 2032032 and will sell for around $16 or so.
