Remove housing the change belt on air speed


There are screws that hold the housing for the belts on. Take all these screws out and the housing should come off. Remove the old belt You have to take your vac model number and make and ask either at a vac store or sometimes a hardware store also carries them
To replace you have to take the brush off and you should clean and lightly oil the ends and replace with the belt on then put housing back in place. Replacing all the screws.Don't try repairing with it plugged in.

How do I replace the belt on my dysonDC14


Hi Margaret,

If your DC14 is a model without brush control, please follow this online guide to check everything is correct with the brushbar, and to replace the belt:

However, if your machine is a model with the brush control feature, you won't be able to replace the belt yourself. If your machine has brush control and the brushbar is not rotating, please follow this guide to resolve this:

Beater bar belt install


  • 1

    Unplug the vacuum cleaner and turn it upside down, flat on the floor, with the roller brush facing up.

  • 2

    Remove the the bottom cover plate from the vacuum by prying it off gently with a screwdriver blade. Set aside the cover plate.

  • 3

    If the old belt is broke, remove it by pulling the belt from underneath the roller bush. If the belt is not broken but simply worn out, and is still attached, cut it off with scissors.

  • 4

    Remove the roller brush by lifting both ends from the grooved slots in the housing of the vacuum cleaner.

  • 5

    Cut away hair, thread, string and other debris wound around the roller, using the scissors. Tangles on the roller brush are a common reason for belt wear and breakdowns due to the added weight and stress on the roller brush.

  • 6

    Slip the replacement belt over the roller brush and seat the belt in the groove in the center of the roller.

  • 7

    Slide the roller brush back into the grooved mounts on either side of the housing and snap into place.

  • 8

    Pull back on the new belt and slip the loop over the pulley attached to the vacuum motor.

  • 9

    Replace the bottom cover by snapping it back on the housing until it clicks into place.

    Dyson DC17 Animal make a loud whine when engaging the brushroller. Metal roller fell out from bottom. What is it how do I replace it. It looks like it was a part that maybe provided tension to the belt?


    You have plastic melted down in the brushroll housing and you will have to either try to cut the melting out or replace the housing. either way you will discard the pulley and replace the belt with the new wider belt.

    Hoover bagless cannister 3765 - belt on power head slips off spindle. bought new belts - same problem. is this a design problem or can it be fixed? I don't want to take it to a repair shop 100 miles...


    I would not recommend a smaller belt. You will only wear the motor. This model series power nozzle needs to have a metal clip installed near the belt on the brush roller housing. I know that most of them left the factory without it. Remove the cover to see if one is ther. if not have your dealer send you a clip or a housing with one on it.

    Need help on to set up belt for shampoo for


    Lift the light bulb housing up and you will find a latch that will rotate to release the front agitator housing and remove it from the machine. On the bottom of that housing, there are two latches that secure the bottom plate that covers the roller. Remove the plate and the roller will come out. Be sure to notice that the roller has a magnet at one end that lines up with the indicator that shows you when the roller is turning - it's the little green light that glows while you are vacuuming. The roller needs to go back in the same way it came out. O.K. Take your new belt and position it around the middle of the roller and drop the roller back into place and replace the bottom plate. On the front of the housing, there is a big square "knob" and you can rotate that piece. If you look inside the hole on the other side of the agitator housing, you will see that there is an arm that moves with the square knob. The end of this arm will catch the belt and with a little effort, the knob will rotate and lift the belt into position for replacing the housing back on to the machine. once you have the housing back on the machine and secure, you rotate the square knob back around and the belt will sit down on the drive shaft. If you look at the top of the agitator housing just above where the knob is, you will see a red and a green arrow which indicate which way the knob turns to do the "remove" belt or "replace" belt. I hope this helps. Once you do it properly, it actually is quite easy.

    I accidentally sucked up a string. The brushes stopped rotating and the suction was low. I took the frame off the brushes, and the rubber belt came out. How do I re-attach the belt/fix this problem? It...


    You'll need to replace the belt.
    On uprights with rubber belts, the belts need to be replaced every 3-6 months due to the fact that since the belts are rubber, they stretch, and once they stretch out they decrease the rotational speed of the brushroll, which results in a lack of agitation.
    While this is not a function of the "suction," it still will make it so that your vacuum does not pick up as well. Many manufacturers are betting that you won't replace your belt often enough, so that when you try their new machine, it will pick up better than your old one.

    To replace the belt on most uprights of this nature, you'll want to remove the base plate and the brushroll. Place the belt around the motor pulley, which is the metal shaft sticking out of the main motor. Then put the other end of the belt around the brushroll pulley, and pull the brushroll into place.

    Replace the baseplate, ensuring that the belt is not pinched between the brushroll and the housing.

    Turn the machine on to ensure that the brushroll spins, and you're finished.

    I CAN'T SEEM TO INSTALL A NEW UB8 BELT


    1. Remove the lower plate
    2. Carefully lift up on the agitator assembly until it clears both sides of the nozzle housing.
      repagita.png
    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.
      repagitb.png
    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.
      repagitc.png
    5. Rotate the agitator assembly by hand to insure nothing rubs and to check for correct assembly.
    6. Replace the lower plate
