Replacing belt on brushroll on a Hoover SH40060 canister


Your manual is pretty lacking. Most all brushes have holder guides on both ends, normally the entire brush and guides will lift straight out of the head if the belt is broke, there could be a locking clip, make sure the area is clean so you can see it, but the brush head has to come out somehow or a new belt can't go on, some have the top of the head comes off, the cover, this way you place the belt on the brush, set the brush back in the head, then you set the belt onto the motor shaft from the top.

What ever you do, make sure you watch how the brush comes out and the guides, if you need to take a marker and put a mark on the guides so you know what the top was and how they go back in.

I have a Kenmore vacuum which all of a sudden will not **** up anything, there is nothing in the hose and when you place your hand over the nozzel it doesn't have any sucking power.


Hi Barb. Sounds like you simply need a new power head belt. If the belt is not broken it could be stretched and need replacing. Check the belt by accessing it from the bottom of the nozzle. If not your belt check the hose for any plugging. If not, check for anything bocking the power head. Hope this helps, Chris

Belt on power head breaks frequently


1. Make sure you're replacing with genuine Filter Queen belt.
2. Avoid vacuuming items that will roll up on the brush. This creates stress on the belt and will weaken and/or break it.
3. How frequently? "Frequently" is a relative term. On some vacuums, once a week is "frequent", on others, twice a year may be.

We have a Miele Silver Moon vacuum that isn't


Hi dear.There are two type of attachments for this vacuum cleaners to pick up the pets hair,fluff & so on.They call it"Turbo & Power Brush".Turbo brush operates with machines suction & Power one operates with small electric motor which is built in the unit.They work with the same prenciple.There is a belt drives the rotary brush.OK.there are two small yellow screw underneath the unit.Please undo them,take of the cover & clean the rotary brush,check for the belts tension.It should be enough tight to drive the brush.If not ask for spare part from Miele in your country.After cleaning please put it back in order.To test it,attached to the vacuum.Turn the power on for Turbo brush,as long as suction starts,brush should start turning too.For the Power one,there should be power button on the handle to turn it on & off.Press it.It should work.On both of the unit,brush should spin good & strong enough to do the job when it's attached the surface you are vacuuming.Check the brush after each use,cleaned if neccesary. I hope that helps.Thanks.

Brushes not turning


Is the motor operating when switched to "on " position? Is so I would have to assume that the belt is broken to the power brush /head. Did you happen to smell burning rubber at all when the brushes stopped working? Look in your manual for replacing power head/brushes belt! WalMart sells most types or your local vacuum repair facility.. check the Yellow pages and let your fingers do the walking.. Good luck

Brush will not turn


Assume that the belt is broken to the power brush /head. Did you happen to smell burning rubber or see small pieces of black rubber? Look in your manual for replacing power head/brushes belt! With the unit off , try turning the brushes by hand and clean them off of debris, etc., as well while there. See if you feel some tension or hear the motor moving inside, indication that the belt is still attrached and if it doesn't seem to have any resistance and you see small pieces of rubber and /or, the band/belt may have just broke from normal usage. WalMart sells most types or your local vacuum repair facility.. check the Yellow pages and let your fingers do the walking.. Good luck

Brush not moving, suction working


This machine is made for Sears by Panasonic. The power head, depending on model has a "gear" / cog belt or a standard flat rubber belt. First turn the power head over and see if the brush roller turns easily, if so you do need a new belt. To access the belt you will have to remove the hood from the power head. There are 4 screws, one at each of the corners to take out. Once the hood is off you will see where the belt goes and find "teeth" in the motor shaft for the motor / brush roller if you need a gear belt. If both of these are flat you need a rubber belt.
You can go to sears.com and find the belt you need with the vacuums model number.

Hi, my power head is not working on model 116 5416083 and I cannot open it up. I think there is a gasket that needs replacing.


If you press on either side of the raised top light cover it will come off. Then you will be able to see the light bulb and two screw heads. Remove the two screws and the top cover of the power brush will lift off from the base and you will be able to access the belt. Here is a link to the belt you need:

Vax mach 5 burning smell and revving loud


The revving/burning is because the belt is burning off and the power head motor is running without load...
Flip the carpet power head upside down on the rug and look for visible screws and screwdriver release slots on the bottom plate of the head.
When you remove the burned belt determine the cause. Will the brush roll freely or is it jammed with hair and fiber?. Clean the burned rubber from the motor shaft before replacing the broken belt, available at a vac specialty shop.

Replacing Belt


On the front of the power head is a knob with the KIRBY name on it. Rotate this knob in a counter clockwise direction and it will "lift" the belt off the motor spindle. Release the head lever, only one direction it will turn and remove the head. Turn the head over on its back, turn the KIRBY knob to release the old belt. Remove the brush guard by turning the two release fixtures. Remove the guard. Pry the brush out of the head. Remove the old belt. While the brush is out remove any build up of hair and lint off the ends that's where the bearings are. put a few drops of 3 in One oil on the ends. Put the new belt over the brush and re-install the brush into the head. the brush will go in only one way. With your finger pull the belt into the housing and rotate the KIRBY knob until the pawl inside grabs the belt. Re-install the brush guard by engaging the two metal pieces into the front of the head and pull down backwards over the head and rotate the holding clips back horizontal. re-install the powerhead on the machine, lock it in place and rotate the KIRBY knob clockwise. You should be all set!
