  1. Remove the lower plate
  2. Carefully lift up on the agitator assembly until it clears both sides of the nozzle housing.
  3. Remove the belt from the motor shaft by sliding it off between the end of the shaft and the nozzle housing.
3.4.2 Installation
  1. Place the belt around the motor shaft.
  2. Start the new agitator assembly back into the nozzle housing by placing the side opposite the belt partially into the slot. This will hold the agitator in place and leave both hands free to place enough tension on the belt to allow that side of the agitator to return to the nozzle housing slot.
  3. Place the belt around the agitator pulley on the agitator assembly.
    NOTE: There is a place for the belt to fit on one end of the agitator assembly only. This is the agitator pulley.
  4. Use both hands to pull the belt tight, and slide the agitator assembly firmly into the slots on each end of the nozzle housing.
  5. Rotate the agitator assembly by hand to insure nothing rubs and to check for correct assembly.
  6. Replace the lower plate

I need a diagram to show me where and how to install the front belt< I think the motor belt) on my Hoover Windtunnel, self propelled Model U6634-900 series x12-0 60HZ 120 V

Most vacuums are pretty well the same belt set-up...remove the metal plate covering the rotating floor brush and pull it new belt over motor pulley and and stretch other end over rotating floor brush in the space provided for it....pull and place ends into slots on the sides....if the belt is not straight flip the brush the other will figure it out. Just be sure to buy the right belt!!!

Seem to have a belt slipping problem. The motor runs but the belt is not turning. Have been trying to get new belts. IMPOSSIBLE !!! I have two machines...148 15600 and 385 1233280

Hi there,

I assume you need belts for both machines? Searspartsdirect (SPD) are the best place for Kenmore replacement parts.

There are 2 belts on the 385 1233280 - the timing belt and the drive belt. Both are in stock at SPD and can be obtained by clicking on the following link:

If you hover over the exploded parts diagram you can see a larger view. The timing belt is number 7 and the drive belt is number 15. If you scoll further down the page you can add them to your shopping cart.

They also have both belts for the 148 15600. They are numbered 16 and 17 in this diagram:

Again both are in stock, and can be ordered by scrolling down the page and adding numbers 16 and 17 to your shopping cart.

Yoiu may be able to get these from a Sears store, but you can any which you need from here.

Hope this helps. Please post back if you need further assistance.

I need help replacing my belt

Just changed mine. I have a Turbo Force 6585. Flip it over and press with your fingers on clip #s 2,3 and 4 (This releases the cover over the roller brush - The clip locations are labeled on the plastic cover). Remove the cover - this will expose the brush , belt and drive motor spindle. Pull the roller straight out (note one side of the roller has a "square peg" - its pretty obvious but you need to align it when replacing. Remove the belt and replace the new one over the silver motor spindle first and then the roller. You will see the area or Pulley (it is part of the roller brush itself) to put it on it is fairly obvious where it goes. Use the roller to stretch the belt and insert the roller back in and replace the cover.

Note; There have been several complaints about belts breaking prematurely on these models - I used a Homecare No. 1145 that is made to fit Panasonic Upright, Belt type UB / UB8 - This belt is about an 1/8 longer (much less tension) than the supplied one and it hasn't broken yet - Considering the factory supplied belt broke in 3 uses, I really don't care what Bissell recomends as this has been a common complaint with this mode on forums. Hope this helps

Every thing works nicely and the suckshion works great when you put your hand there however when i try to vacuum it doesn't pick up anything

Try to change the belt, you can use a panasonic UB or UB8 belt which should be easy to find. It sounds like your belt is stretched and slipping on the brushroll when it comes in contact with the floor.

Can't figure out how to get the belt around vacuum motor shaft

I am assuming you are referring to the beater bar belt. You will either find a release lever on each side or a small screw and bar restraining the bearing that holds the bar in place. Removing whichever of these you find will allow you to install the new belt. Clean up the dirt accumulation on the bearings while it is apart.

I have no idea how to put the belt back on

Take the nozzle of, remove the brush roll, put the a new belt over the brush roll, re-install and put the bottom plate on, making sure that the belt is in the middle of the brush roll. Turn the big knob on the front until it locks, when it grabs the belt it will be hard to turn. Re-install the nozzle on the machine and lock it down. Turn the knob again all of the way, this will release the belt unto the pulley.

Cannot get new belt on

no need to remove motor shaft which is integral with motor. slip belt on motor shaft first, then on roller then pull roller back to correct position. needs a little force
