Question about Eureka 2961AVZ Bagless Upright Vacuum
I have the Eureka 2961 model. The belt broke recently and I replaced it according to the directions. Aflter I started the vacuum within 60 seconds the new belt broke also. Why is this happening?
I had the same problem. Broke 2 belts before I got online and noticed this site! What I found was, the roller ends were not turning freely. I had cleaned the hair (nasty) off the roller, but the ends were still not able to spin around without some force.
What I did was, removed the roller and on the 2 ends there are 2 black plastic caps which fit over the bearing, I removed the plastic caps and put a little WD-40 on the bearing, or any industrial lubricant, even new motor oil will work. After putting on the WD-40, I spun the roller end around a few times and the WD-40 lubricated the bearings and Voila! The roller end spun freely!! I put the black caps back onto the bearings on both sides, reinstalled a new belt, it's been working great since.
It saves the cost of a new roller.

Did you check the brush roll, if not take it out, see if the ends are ok and turn freely, if not then replace it.
