The only correct solution is to replace the door. A small piece of tape works well too

Why is the new belt on my dirt devil featherlite repeatedly slipping off? Everything else on it works fine and the b elt is the correct size.


Hello! There is no other part that goes on the motor shaft after the belt is put on. The tension of the belt keeps the belt from slipping off. If you have a brand new belt that keeps slipping off you may not have the correct belt for the vacuum. Be sure you replace with a genuine Dirt Devil belt and the specified belt style for your particular unit. Hope this helps! If you still need assistance feel free to reach out to us here on Fixya, Facebook.com/dirtdevil, or Twitter @DirtDevil.

Hoover Windtunnel Bagged upright vacuum is smoking and belt is slitting and burning


you probably need to replace your brushroll seeing that your belt is burning means motor is turning. first check you brushroll and see if there is an obstruction keeping it from spinning if its not spinning freely replace

Brush roller not spinning. belt, spindle okay. roller taken out and cleaned, no thread. replaced but no dice. ???


Use only BISSELL Style 10 Replacement Belts (#32074) in your BISSELL PowerForce Bagless.
  1. Unplug cleaner from electrical outlet.
  2. With Rotating Floor Brush removed from vacuum cleaner, grasp old Drive Belt and remove from Motor Pulley. Discard old Drive Belt.
  3. Place new Drive Belt over Motor Pulley and stretch other end over Rotating Floor Brush in the space between the bristles.
  4. Place ends of Rotating Floor Brush down into slots on sides as shown.
  5. Turn Rotating Floor Brush by hand several times in the direction of Motor Pulley. If properly installed, Drive Belt will center itself on Rotating Brush.
  6. Reposition Brush Cover and snap back into place. Check to be sure all three latches are secured.
  7. When you turn on the vacuum, do you see the motor that spins the belt spinning at the bottom? If not, it sounds like you may have a burned out motor.

Green light does not come on ans brush does not move. belt is good and brush does spin manually.


I assume this is a Kirby. The belt is not on the motor shaft if you can turn the brush manually. Remove the head, turn the belt lifter assembly clockwise to stretch the belt into a loop, place the head back onto the motor unit and latch it in place, then turn the belt lifter counterclockwise to drop the belt onto the motor shaft.

The little belt inside the head of the vaccum with the beater bar is not always spinning therefor is melting. Is it normal for the metal pin that it is going around on to get really hot?


The Belt should be changed at this point. This will allow for the proper tension to be on the brush between the motor assembly (metal pin) and the brush so that it spins at the proper speed.

Is it "normal" for the metal pin (motor shaft) to get hot.... not normal, however in the problem you have described, yes it is normal for this situation.

Change the belt and your problem should go away.

The belt doesn't turn when the power is turned on my Dyson vacuum


if the belt jammed at any time i/e roller brush was blocked with an object the shaft the belt spins on will burn the belt waring it down so shaft will spin but belt may be too loose or worn out check belt or see if you can see the shaft spinning if it is, that is your problem

The brush isn't spinning


the belt is broke. you can buy a new one for around 5-10 dollars at target or walmart, or loews or homedepot.take the screws of the bottom panel to expose belt. you will have to pull out the beater bar to replace the belt. just pull on it after the bottom plate is removed the beater bar just slides out. slide the new belt down the beater bar then pull the belt over the spinning pin. now stretch the beater back to its original position it should slide right in. replace the bottom plate and your back in business

The beater bar won't turn - the belt is fine. Any other suggestions?


Can you pull the bar and check the end caps to be sure they spin seperate of the bar? Also look at the wheel from the motor that turns the belt. This may be spinning on the shaft which could be caused by a broken pin.

My brush assembly fell off!


They lock into that blue arm with the two holes in it. The erm is plastic and has the spring loaded latches that hold the brushes in. If the latches have failed the brushes won;t stay in. The other option is the latch pins on the brushes have brocken or worn out. Turn the machine over and try to make the brushes latch, also push the brush release buttons several time to make sure they are working. Good-luck.

Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure.
Depending on the brand name and model # it is my opinion that it is not the belt, it may be that your brushroll is bound up with thread, hair, dirt, etc., and is not spinning well – place the brushroll on end and try to spin it, if it does not spin freely, then you are bound up, try to clean it up and lubricate by using one drop of oil and then wipe off the excess, you don’t want the oil to hit your carpet, if that does not work replace the brush and the new belt, am average flat belt change is every 4 to 6 months – also you may have the wrong size belt of which would cause the to burn up fast. Always use the genuine vacuum belts when replacing.
So if you need further assistance, please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or in the yellow pages, or contact the factory phone number or website to further assist you with your questions.
