Changing belt How do I do that? It looks like I would have to take the screwdriver to the bottom and enter the engine compartment. I'm not sure that I feel confident to take this machine all apart and be able to get it back together again.

Hoover vacuum cleaner - have suction in the hose, brush roller spins, but no suction when vacuuming carpet.


There is a clog or blockage in the channel near the roller or where the vacuum hinges at.

Unplug and turn it so that the bottom faces upward and use a screwdriver to open the bottom as you would to change belts. On most upright vacuums, it should only be two to four screws to remove the cover.

While the cover is removed, see if you can spot any noticable obstructions from there. While it is opened, it may also be a good idea to use a pick, screwdriver, or whatever may be handy to pull out any threads, strings or hair that could get tangled around the roller and brushes, to improve performance and last longer. In some cases or on some models, you may need to use a piece of wire or something, bent like a small hook, to reach up into the suction channels a bit to pull out any possible obstructions.
Also check along the path to see if there are other parts that you feel would be easy enough to open and clean out, but only so far as you feel confident in doing yourself, and be sure to not lose any screws and remember where they all go.

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.

Hoover telios 1600 dismantling


Remove the 4 screws in the Dust Bag compartment.

Remove the Power button and Cord-rewind botton. This involves using a screwdriver or knife to open/undo a plastic clip located under the bittons near the gril in the top-centre-back of the hover.
When holding the clip back, slide the button towards the bottom of the hover (IE: away from the bag compartment) till it pops out (this can be fiddley).
This will then reveal 4 more screws (within the springs and near the grill).

Then prise the hover open to reveal the motor and power-switch.

How do I take about my Dyson DC11 to replace the retractable power cord assembly


While it doesn't require a collection bag, a Dyson-brand vacuum cleaner can still suffer the problems of wear and tear that are prone to any vacuum cleaner--for example, a frayed power cord. If the power cord of your Dyson vacuum cleaner has become frayed, change it immediately to avoid a dangerous electrical mishap. You will need a replacement cord from an electronics service center, along with a few common household tools. You do not need electrical skills to complete the task.
Follow this steps on how to replaced the power cord assembly:

1 Unplug the Dyson vacuum cleaner's power plug from the wall outlet. Press the button on the top front of the plastic collection cover. Lift the cover off the front of the vacuum cleaner and place it aside.

  • 2 Trace the power cord to where it enters the back bottom of the vacuum cleaner. Remove the screws from the panel surrounding the power cord with a Phillips screwdriver. Remove the panel. Aim the beam of a flashlight inside the compartment so that you can see where the wires at the end of the power cord wrap around two screws on the motor assembly. Loosen these screws with a Phillips jeweler's screwdriver.

  • 3 Pull the power cord out of the compartment and dispose of it properly. Strip a 1/2 inch of insulation from the ends of the two wires of the replacement power cord. Run the wires into the compartment along the path of the original power cord--pushing the wires into the grooves inside the compartment.

  • 4 Tie a knot on the cord on the inside of the compartment to prevent the cord from being pulled out.

  • 5 Wrap the exposed end of each wire of the power cord around the loosened screws. Tighten the screws. Replace the panel and reattach the screws. Stand the vacuum cleaner right side up. Place the bottom of the plastic collection cover into the bottom front slot on the vacuum cleaner. Push the cover back on the front of the vacuum cleaner.

    How do i change the belt on the eureka 4703D


    Changing the belt is quite easy on this unit.

    First, you will need a phillips screwdriver looks like the X. there should be 2 screws on the top cover, and then MAYBE one more there by the hose where it attaches to the base at the back. The top cover comes off and you have full access to the belt underneath.

    Also, side note, once you have the cover off there you should see a black and yellow sticker near where the belt rides, and it will go into more details to changing the belt.
