Vacuum keeps burning up belts Comment by campoclan, posted on May 02, 2008
I have a Kirby Sentra and have had problems since I bought it a few years ago with burning up belts. I go through at least two a month. What is wrong with it? I keep the roller clean each time I vacuum.
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure.
Some Kirby vacuum in the brushroll have bushings and some have bearings and the bushing bind up and do not spin properly and I suggest to replace your brushroll with a genuine Kirby belts and brushroll of which would work the best for you performance wise. A suggested belt change depending on carpet can be every 3 to 4 months or 4 to 6 months and the brushroll when needed, some carpets are ******* the belts and they do require change more frequently. The rest should be fine. 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
