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 and you will be able to access the belt. You can find this belt you need here:

When I was vacuuming this morning it smelled like burnt oil or something. The powerhead was not working when I checked. Can I get a new powerhead or is there another solution?


It sure sounds like your belt is burned off. You need to have it looked at before replacing the unit that's for sure. If the sweeper assy. under the vac is not turning than the belt is broken. Go to GE 106766 belt on the web and you sould be able to get it delivered to your door. Good Luck.

My powerhead on my EXL Tri-Star goes on then shuts off. When youturn it upside downit runs, then back on the floor it stops. Is it the belt inside the powerhead and if so to I take the head apart and...


a vac shop is probably going to require you to use their parts for warranty purposes. but its pretty simple. most shops should be capable to do it.

Royal 3050 power head does not run


The sounds like powerhead motor either burned up, or the belt broke and got tangled in the turning motor shaft. Pull the bottom off the power head and look for a curled up rubber band. If you find one, it's the belt.

If it's the motor, you won't hear it running when you turn the powerhead on.

Belt broke, can't get bottom off


if it's the one in the picture then pop off the light cover by gently pushing in and prying on both sides . Remove the bulb by pushing and twisting , OK?, now see the 2 screws? take them out. now flip over the powerhead and gently pry at both sides toward the rear wheels.

Broken belt


If you have the power head with the headlight, squeeze the sides of the upper part (almost like a superstructure,) where the headlight is located. It should lift off, allowing access to the screws to get the powerhead apart the rest of the way, and on most models it even has instructions on how to replace the belt molded into the plastic.

Canister works, vacuum doesnt


There could be a break in the electric from the machine to the hose - or from the hose to the wand - or from the wand to the Power Nozzle - or it could be the motor is bad. 

Wiggle the cord at the Hose with it running- then go to the Wand - then to the Power Nozzle. You may find a break in the wires anywhere along the line.

unplug the Vacuum:

If you have a meter check to see if the reset is working - and last check to see if the motor will work removed from the Nozzle.
