Take off the bottom plate, you will see the brush roll and old belt, If you can reach the motor shaft, then put the belt over it and then over the brush rol and stretch to fit back in the slots fot it. If you don't see the motor shaft, then you have to remove the top cover to get to it.

SOURCE: Replace the belt

Take off the bottom plate, put the new belt on the motor shaft first, then stretch it to go over the pulley, it is hard, but it will stretch to go over it.

SOURCE: Belt replacement

No belt- it is motor driven. what happens to these if the rollers get stuck(by- say, a Lego® or something)  is the roller itself has an insert which will break, requiring roller replacement. 
simple fix, but costs a little more than a belt. remove two screws holding the roller cover, accessible by flipping the vac over. then figure out which roller is broken, and remove the 2 outer screws on that side. pull the outer bearing cup assembly straight out to remove the rollers.
I have found the rollers as cheap as $3.50 ea/ for generic replacements. Also I reckon any Vac shop would have them on hand.

Your belt number will be listed on the data label with the model number. Check your local Hoover / Dirt devil dealer for the part.

make sure the carpet/floor selector switch is in the carpet position. if that is good then you probably have a broken belt. Unfortunately a complete clutch assembly will have to be installed. Just the belts cannot be changed

I have a dyson - bought it 3 yrs. ago and the roller brush stoped working - doesnt pick up anything. Can you help? The brush doesn't roll or spin. Where can we take it to be fixed and is it under warrenty?...


Don't worry it's probably just that the belt has broken or stretched. Your actually supposed to change them yearly. So if its been three years thats probably the case. Here is a link to the belt you need and a manual with instrutions:

The brush is not working anymore


Your drive belt is probably broken. They usually need to be changed every 6 to 12 months. If you haven't replaced the belt recently I would try that. You can get the belts you need through this link and also view the manual which has step by step instructions on how to change the belt. hope this helps!

Changing belt
Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. Normally there are 2 to 4 screws or clips, levers on the bottom of the vacuum, and then you can remove the bottom plate or top cover and then you can get @ the belt to change it. Unfortunately, I do not know the brand name and model& serial 3 in order to tell you the exact method for the belt change. You can check with your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or contact the vacuum factory tech support line. Such as: Example….

I need to replace the belt on the power nozzle of my Hoover Dimension 1000 Model S3491. Unfortunately, I have no written instructions on how to do so. I purchased the vacuum cleaner in the mid-80s. Are the instructions still available? Thanks in advance.

Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. I believe so, but you would have to contact the Hoover Factory and they would have to send out either the owner’s manual or a copy of the owner’s manual from the fische. I remember this vacuum cleaner well. In order to change the belt you need to remove the 4 screws in the bottom of the power nozzle and then the top cover will lift off from the back to the front and then you can get in to change the belt. Always use the Factory Genuine belts instead of the replacement belts, they last longer and the average belt change for a flat belt is every 4 to 6 months as a rule for the best cleaning. In order to change the belt, lift up the pulley side of the brushroll and slide off the old belt and then slide on the new belt and re-install the brushroll, then use a belt puller or screwdriver with a hook on the end and to pull or stretch the belt onto the motor pulley, once you have it on the vacuum track the belt in a straight line and then reinstall the top cover and screws in reverse. If you have questions 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 bought a Hoover Wind Tunnel in January 2008. At first it worked great though very noisy. Now it will not pick up small fuzz on medium shag carpeting. I have checked the bag, the filter, the belt, and obstructions and there are none. Plus the noise level has increased. What is wrong?
I am very dissatisfied.


Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure.
Sorry you are having a problem, using the Hoover Windtunnel is a very good vacuum. Reading youre description, the belt is one of the main reasons you are not picking up the small fuzz on a medium shag carpeting. The belt change on the average , if you have one or 2 belts should be changed every 4 to 6 months as a rule, and the brushes need to be in good shape as well, if those two are working well you may have a bad seal on the motor or a broken fan blade(s) and that would decrease suction and you would need to replace the fan. Also check the gaskets if they are broken or damaged or pinched and letting air through the suction will leak out. These are some of the items to check for, so feel free to contact your local vac dealer. 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.

Brush belt is very weak.
























































Brush Belt broken or disconnected. Very weak belt. Colossal engineering mistake by Bissell. Belt itself and its components are under way to much stress for the size they developed to perform their task. For Quality Control to let such an obvious blunder pass can only mean that it was intentional for reasons, Im sure, beneficial to Bissell and costly for the consumer. No telling how many people buy another entire machine when this rubberband of a belt breaks like it was intended. Bissell is not a consideration of myself or anyone I can enlighten.
