There are two screws on the Fantom Thunder (It was not made by Eureka though) on the back of the unit just above the rear wheels. Remove these two screws and the top cover can be removed to get to the brushroll, belt and headlights. I believe the light bulbs in this unit are 12 Volt, not 110 volt.

I need to know how to change the belt on a fantom xt


Turn it upside down.On the bottom where the brush is are 4 screws.Unscrew those 4 screws.Remove the plate.Now you can see the belt.There may be a second plate covering part of the belt,if so remove it too.The belt fits around the brush in a groove the same width as the belt.The other end of the belt fits on a small wheel about half way back from the brush.Put the plate back on and you are done.

I have a Fantom Thunder Vacuum. Missed placed my book. How do you replace the belt on the brush?


depending on your model, and I am going from memory on this one. I have not seen this model in a while.

1 headlight on the unit:
there are 2 screws on the back of the cover for the brush. Just above the wheels. Remove those two screws and the cover will come off.

2 headlights on the unit:
use a small screwdriver to remove the headlight lens covers, remove both of the light bulbs, and then the two screws are under the lights. there MAY be 2 more screws again at the back of the unit above the 2 rear wheels to remove as well. again the cover should come off and you will have full access to the belt/brush under there.

Changing belt - Eureka Whirlwind 5740


I tried the website for manuals but no luck. I called the toll-free # 1-800-282-2886 and got a rep right away. I gave him the model and s/n (lower bottom on the back side) and he walked me thru it. For the model I have, there are 3 screws to remove - With the vacuum upright and standing facing it - there is on on the right and one on the left of the bottom cover and one on the left side near the hose intake. Remove those to get to the belt. I ordered the belt with him too - althought the belts were cheap ($2.99 for 2) the shipping was $8. If this didnt help - call the 800# - they were great.

Need to replace belt on Eureka Powerline 12.0 vac. Screws look like Torx head or something on bottom of vac. Are those the screws that need to come out for changing? If so, what size do I need?


No, do not remove the torx head screws for a belt change. If there are any screws that need to be removed for the belt change, they will be phillips head. What is model # of vac??

Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. The belt change on the Fantom is to remove the bottom plate by undoing the screws, clips or levers, then cut off the old belt, remove the brushroll on the pulley side and place the new belt on the pulley side and replace the brushroll. Then use a belt puller or screwdriver with a hook on the end and then stretch the belt onto the motor pulley and then track the belt in a straight line. The replace the bottom plate and you should be fine. The recommended belt change on a vacuum with a flat belt is every 4 to 6 months for the best cleaning and always use the genuine belts for the Fantom. 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.

These are the other brands that use the same tech support line

Belt change for eureka capture


Lie the vacuum down so it's completely flat, the back of it facing up. On the bottom of it, on the grey plastic, there are instructions. They say, to access the belt, remove the screws numbered 1, 2, 3 & 4. Then look at the four corners of the bottom of the vacuum and you'll see these numbers. You may need a flashlight to actually see the screws because a couple of them are pretty deep inside the plastic. Loosen them with a long shafted, Phillips screwdriver. Stand the vacuum back up and the screws should just fall out. Then you can easily pop off the cover to change the belt.

No belt


There are two screws on the top side just behind the Brush housing. Remove these two screws, one on each side, and the top plate can be removed. Then you can follow the directions above.
Hope that helps.

Need to get access to the belt on my Eureka model 4475


Eureka Model #4475
need to get access to the belt on my Eureka model 4475

I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure.
There may be 2 different ways to get to the belt, I checked the Eureka website and I believe you have to remove the bottom plate and the brushroll and belt are exposed and you would hook the belt on the brushroll 1st and then use a screwdriver with a bent hook and then you can pull the belt onto the pulley, once the belt is on the pulley then you can track the belt by rolling it on the brushroll & belt pulley --- the other way is that there are 2 screws on the bottom of the of the vacuum – remove the screws and then the top cover should lift off the vacuum to expose the belt – then follow the same procedure ads listed above. Check with you local vacuum dealer in your area in the yellow pages or use the Eureka website or customer service phone number listed below:
