Question about Kirby G5 Bagged Upright Vacuum
I have an oreck XL upright and the belts keep coming off. I have cleaned it througly inside & made sure the brushroller was cleaned well. I did notice on the side of the brushroller where the belt goes on to is a little worn could this be the problem? Please help I cant keep going through belts every 5 minutes ( and I mean that literally) it's becoming very costly. Do you think a new roller brush would help?
For orecks it is usually the fan housing has loosened everything. your belt will slip. if your vac is under warranty, then fixing should be free. if not, it is about $60

If the pulley on the brush roll is worn, then I would replace the brushroll. Look at the ends where the brush roll sits in to make sure the casing hasn't over heated and not holding the brush in place. Also make sure the motor is shifting and causing the belt to come off. Another is if you are catching a rug or towel, that also will cause the belt to come off. I am assuming you using a new belt and not a worn one. After only a short time, belts stretch and need to be replaced.
