How do I change the belt on my Kirby sweeper?


1)First, you turn the square belt lifter on the front of the power nozzle until the red arrows line up (belt off)
2)Remove the power head from the front of the machine. Now turn the belt lifter the other way and line the green arrows up again. This releases the tension on the belt
3)Turn it upside down and release the two clips that hold the metal baseplate on and remove the baseplate and you can access the belt.

Try to remove all other base plate screws first. If they can be removed gently try to pull open by hand against the lid while rotating the remaining screw. You will need to apply outward pressure betweent the insert and baseplate to remove it while rotating with a driver and using the separating pressure to allow it to unscrew.
The inner housing may have a cap nut on it which has spun loose or the threaded area of the housing has likely cracked if the head has been dropped.

Installing roller brush for oreck XL 21


uh, probably not sure what the issue is, but
1. unplug unit.
2. Remove the multiple screws from the bottom of the unit.
3. remove the bottom baseplate (usually black)
4. the brush roll is now visible, and the belt should be around it.
5. Pull the brush roll away from the unit, and disengage the belt.
6. Replace in the opposite order. Make sure that baseplate fits properly to insure a good seal. Also watch the bumper (rubber part that is wrapped around the unit) to make sure it is properly seated.
7. Handroll the roller brush before plugging in. Make sure it moves freely.
8. Run unit, may get a slight burning smell, but if this continues for more than a minute - turn off and inspect the unit. Brush roll requires a short burn in time, on initial build, factory accomplishes this during test procedures.

No suction


Replace your belt. Remove the baseplate, remove the brushroll, place a new belt around the motor pulley, then around the pulley on the brushroll, and pull the brushroll back into place in the nozzle. Spin it by hand to make sure it spins, (otherwise you'll break the belt again,) and then replace the baseplate. Party.

Vacuum is not self-propelling and no suction


Replace your rubber belt, it is what powers the self-propel mechanism.
Remove the 4 screws from the baseplate and replace the belt at the rear of the machine.

Remove the five screws from the baseplate and replace your belt by removing your brushroll, putting the belt over the motor pulley, and then over the pulley on the brushroll, then replacing the brushroll in its original position and screwing the baseplate on. Note that you should make sure that the bearing ends of your brushroll spin freely prior to doing this to avoid the belt breaking again.

No suction


Flip the machine upside down and remove the four screws from the baseplate. Replacement should be fairly self-explanatory from there. If it's a self-propel model, note that the v-belt in the front WILL look loose normally, so it does not usually require replacement.
If you have a self propelled model, the belt you need ends in 035, if it's non self propelled it ends in 033.
Contact me if you need more assistance in changing the belt.

You probably need to replace your belt. Rubber vacuum belts require replacement every 3-6 months.
There are 4 screws on the bottom of your machine on the plate covering the brushroll. Remove these, remove the brushroll and belt, place the new belt over the motor pulley, (the metal bar sticking out of the motor,) then place it on the brushroll and pull the brushroll back into place. Spin the brushroll to ensure that the belt is not pinched, and replace the baseplate. Party.
