I replaced a torn belt and now cannot get brush back in place

Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure.
It’s probably a good idea to slide the belt on 1st and then install the brushroll and there is a tool out there that is like a screwdriver with the left or right hand bend to the blade that you can use as a belt puller and then stretch the belt from the brushroll to the motor pulley. That would work better and the brushroll would be easier to install. Please check your owner’s manual or next time let us know what the name brand and model # the vacuum is. 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.

How do I replace a belt on an upright kirby?


First, go to a vacuum store ("sewing and vacuum" shop in some places) and purchase the correct belt. You unlock the rug plate by unhooking two latches on the rear of the nozzle. The rug plate is the steel item which rubs on the carpet and locks the brush roll in place. Just look on the bottom and you will see two steel levers which you need to move. You then lift out the brush roll: pay attention while you do this to see how it comes out, as that knowledge will help when it is time to put it back in. You then place the new belt over the brush roll and then replace the brush roll. On my Gsix, one of the plastic brush roll ends is larger than the other. The roll will only fit in one way, so flip it around if you can't get it to smoothly slide in place. Maybe it is the same on your G4.

Where is the belt housed on the Hoover vacum cleaner model U5461-900? The belt number is 38528-033 but I can't find where the broken belt is to replace it.


Simply lay the machine down with the brush assembly facing upwards, and remove the four screws holding the bottom plate in place, and remove it. Put the new belt around the motor shaft, then around the brush assembly and push the brush back into place. Turn the brush with your fingers before replacing the bottom plate, to be sure the belt isn't caught between the brush and housing.

Need to replace belt and cannot figure how to take it apart to get at the belt --- Took Screws off on the bottom but could not get to the belt


You have already removed the screws so lift the brush cover off. Then grasp rotating floor brush at both ends and lift. Clean strings,hair and other debris from rotating brush, paying close attention to the brush ends. Clean the debris from motor pulley and drive belt areas.Grasp old drive belt and remove from motor pulley. Place new drive belt over motor pulley and stretch other end over rotating floor brush in the space between the bristles. Place the ends of the rotating floor brush down into slots on the sides. Turn the rotating floor brush by hand several times in the direction of motor pulley. If installed properly, drive belt will center itself on rotating brush. Reposition brush cover and screw back into place. I hope that this helps you!

My powerhead drive belt to the N137A electrolux model has broken. I have a new belt for replacement but do not know how to install.


Turn the PN bottom up. With a Phillips screwdriver, remove the six screws in the base. Turn PN over and lift back of cover, then gently manipulate it until it comes off.
Slide the belt off motor shaft, if necessary. Remove the screws on each end of the brush and lift the end of the brush so you can remove the belt, if necessary. Place new belt on brush and place brush into slot. Replace screws and tighten. Pull belt back to motor shaft and slip on. Check belt for tautness. There should be a little play, but not much. Make sure belt is placed correctly and rotate brush a few turns.
I recommend cleaning the inside of the PN while you have it apart. Use the dust brush to vacuum as much as possible out.
Make sure the light cover is in the correct position. Carefully place front lip of PN cover into slot in front.of the PN. Carefully settle cover in place. Check around the PN to ensure cover and base are correctly placed. Turn PN over and replace screws, short one in front.

I do recommend letting a trained Aerus Electrolux tech do this, especially since the belt will have a one year warranty if he/she does it. Of course the belt should last longer than that, anyway.

How to get the vacuum apart to change the belt


Turn power nozzle bottom up.
Remove the 5 screws.
Insert tip of a standard screwdriver into each square hole on either side of the wheels and twist to release the tabs.
Holding the power nozzle together, turn it over.
Lift the back of the cover up, then remove it.
Remove the screws at the ends of the brush.
Lift out brush.
Remove belt and replace with new belt.
Place brush back into slots and replace screws.
Check belt to make sure it's settled correctly and check tautness. It should have some give, but not much.
Replace cover by inserting front lip into the slot at the front of the base. Carefully manipulate into place, ensuring the latches click into place.
Turn PN bottom up.
Replace screws.

Hoover Widepath Tempo - belt slips off when we start it. Can you help?


Perhaps the belt is stretched. Replace it with Hoover belt # 38528-033. Remove the rug plate on the bottom ( 4 screws ), and remove the brushroll. Place the belt around the motor shaft first, then position it around the brush, and push the brush back into the housing. Expect resistance from the belt, as it must be stretched several inches. After the brush is in place, turn it with your fingers to be sure the belt is centered, and not pinched between the brush and the housing. After replacing the bottom plate the vacuum should be ready to use.

When the power head is activated. The brush housing vibrates and make a very load noise. this started all at once one us and no problem next use and it sounds as if it wants to come apart


Sounds like you need to check the alignment of the beater brush drive belt. If it is torn or loose, it will cause you trouble. Best to go through the process of replacing it and at the same time, clean the beater brush and make sure it is not frozen. If it is it can cause problems for the drive belt. Pay special attention to the ends of the brush where the clips are that hold it in place. Spray some WD40 and turn by hand to be sure the holders turn freely.
If you find this solution to be beneficial, I would appreciate a Thumbs Up rating from you.
Be well, Paul

Changing the belt


Always make sure your machine is unplugged from the outlet before replacing the belt.
Newer Oreck uprights have an access plate on the right hand side of the base (as you're looking at it from the front). Remove the one screw from the access plate and slide it forward. Snake the new belt around the brush roll pulley and then strrrrrrretch it back to the motor shaft. Replace the access plate.
If your model does not have an access plate; turn the machine upside down, Remove all screws. Lift the bottom plate off. Observe the position of the brush roll ends, One side of each end cap will have several notches cut into it,this is the 'new' side, the other side is smooth, this is the 'old' side. You can reposition the brush roll the the 'old' side if your bristles appear worn down.
With the brush roll still removed; place one end of the belt over the motor shaft first, place the other side of the belt around the brush roll pulley and stretch the brush roll forward until it is back in place.
Spin the brush roll by hand before replacing the cover to ensure the belt is not pinched.
Replace to cover.
