Question about Vacuums
Generic problem for all Vacuums
Keep replacing belt that drives
Posted by andy78billy on Apr 30, 2008
Keep replacing belt that drives brusher but keeps breaking. When feel belt driver rod it is superheated.....could it be melting into the stretched belt causing it to weaken?
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure.
Depending on the brand name and model # it is my opinion that it is not the belt, it may be that your brushroll is bound up with thread, hair, dirt, etc., and is not spinning well – place the brushroll on end and try to spin it, if it does not spin freely, then you are bound up, try to clean it up and lubricate by using one drop of oil and then wipe off the excess, you don’t want the oil to hit your carpet, if that does not work replace the brush and the new belt, am average flat belt change is every 4 to 6 months – also you may have the wrong size belt of which would cause the to burn up fast. Always use the genuine vacuum belts when replacing.
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.
