SOURCE: Kenmore Elegance Upright Bagged Vacuum Belt Broken and Smelling

It sounds like the brushroll has caused your belt problem and will be the cause of your burning smell as well. What commonly occurs is that carpet fiber,hair,string, thread,etc got wound around the brushroll and some will get caught in the end caps which is where the bearings are.The end caps need to be removed and cleaned so that the bearings can allow the brush to rotate freely.Check that there is no melting of the end caps or the base plate where the end caps fit into the machine._Good Luck

Yes, you do... only the 'motor protection filter' in the bag compartment is meant to be user cleaned.

Here's a manual, with a parts diagram near the end, if it's of use.

How do I get to the belt on a Kenmore vacuum cleaner, belt on a kenmore elegance canister,


Take it to you local vac shop for service. If the belt is broken there is another problem. Those belts are not supposed to break. The machine has a circuit breaker. If the breaker didn't function properly and caused the belt to break, you will likely just break the new belt.

Belt


You probably need a phillips screwdriver to Remove the screws on the bottom of the vacuum and pull the brush bar out _ the belt is wrapped around one end of that and anchored to the vacuum - put new belt on and replace cover on bottom by replacing the screws.

Smell coming out of vacuum


If it is a smell of burning rubber, it is time to change the belt. It is an easy fix. Most belts can be changed by opening the bottom plate, lifting the roller up, and sliding in a new belt. You can find vacuum cleaner belts here. If you are not able to find the belt, let me know the model number and I will send you the link to the belt

Trying to change the belt


things you will need Vacuum belt
  • Screwdriver
  1. Locate and purchase the correct belt for your Eureka vacuum cleaner from the local grocery or department store. Vacuum belts come in different sizes according to your model of vacuum. Check your owner's manual or the vacuum itself for your model number.

  2. Turn your vacuum cleaner over so that the bottom of the unit is facing you. Remove the cover plate from the bottom by undoing the screws that are holding it in place with a screwdriver.

  3. Locate the belt pulley rod near the back of the vacuum base coming out of the motor. With the vacuum cleaner base turned upside down and facing you, the motor and pulley rod should be up near the top of the base.

  4. Slide the vacuum brush roller out of the slots at the bottom of the vacuum base and remove the old belt from the brush roller and pulley rod. With the brush roller off of the unit, clean the brush by removing any strings or cords wrapped around the tube.

  5. Install the new belt by looping it over the belt pulley rod next to the motor and then looping around the end of the brush roller in the belt slot. Hold the brush roller and pull back on it to tighten the belt while you slide the roller back into the slots on the vacuum base.

  6. Replace the base cover plate by snapping it back into place and securing it with screws. Turn vacuum back upright and turn it on to test the belt and verify the unit is working

Lever & belt placement in Kenmore Progressive upright vacuum


You are correct. The belt is supposed to go around the peg that is connected to the lever so that when it is on the Floor /Tools setting the belt is not driven by the drive shaft.

Instructions on changing a belt on an Elite Hoover Vacuum Cleaner Model # v5075-930 Serial # 089500053577
Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. Knowing the brand name and model number for the vacuum but I can give you a generic way of changing the belt. You 1st need to remove the bottom plate by screws, levers or clips, then you can get @ the belt, if not then you should remove the top cover and then you can get @ the belt. 1st remove the belt from the brushroll and install the new belt on the pulley side of the brushroll and then use a belt puller or a screwdriver with a bend on the end and then stretch the belt onto the motor pulley and then track the belt in a straight line so that is running in a straight line. Replace the bottom plate and the belt change should be done. Please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area.

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.

I require a new drive belt for my upright vacuum cleaner


Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. In order to change your belt I would need to know the brand name and the model # in order to give you the correct information to change your belt, so a little bit more information needed as to what you have and then I can direct you in the belt change. Normally there are screws in the bottom of the vacuum and once you remove the screws or clips you can either change it from the bottom or the top cover will lift off and then you can get @ the belt from the top. The average and recommended belt change for a flat belt is every 4 to 6 months and if you have a geared belt it is once a year for the best cleaning. 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.

Hello,

I am not sure how old your Hoover is but the old style the belt would change from the bottom and you would have to remove the bottom plate, lift out the brushroll and slide the belt onto the center of the brushroll, then look for the belt guide stamped right on the bottom of the vacuum and it will show you how to twist the belt in order for the belt to work, if the belt is on right you will have suction, if the belt is on wrong it will be blowing instead of having suction. If it is newer – you will have to remove the bottom plate or the top cover depending on the age of the vacuum and the belt will be on one side and the procedure is still the same – lift out the brushroll, slide the belt onto the brush, re-insert the brushroll into it’s position, then take a screwdriver or what I call a belt puller and stretch the belt onto the belt pulley then track / roll the belt and it will run straight and true. 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.

Kenmore Powermate Canister Vacuum Cleaner


Depending on which model, there is a couple of scres on the bottom, then on each side and back are release catchs that you pry up to release the top, then you can get to the belt. The other model you take off the light cover, it just snaps in place, then you can take out 2 screws from the top, on each side there is a slot, put a screwdriver up into the slot and pry out to release the tabs, then the cover comes off and you can get to the belt.
