Question about Kenmore 31913 Progressive Direct Drive Bagged Upright Vacuum
While vacuuming, i heard a single noise found roller brush not turning didn't see any belt when removed top if there is one where would it be? any solution
Mthomas--the exact same thing happened to me as "Apprentice" above. The small white plastic piece fell out while I was cleaning the agitator, and I didn't know where it came from. At least I was smart enough to keep track of it, and was able to get it back where it went. All was fine after that.

hit the solution on the head.
just watch the small plastic part that hits the acuator switch. it's small, white plastic. when I took mine apart, couldn't figure wher it came from. the only way the brushes will turn is to engage the switch.

No belt, this is direct drive, the motor is part of the brush roll. If you go to sears.com, click on parts, put in you rmodel number, it starts with 116.*********. It will bring up a parts list along with a picture breakdown for you to look at, and you can order parts there also. You might also check where the hose goes into, some of these have a switch there, when you push the hose in it hits an actuator that engages the switch. This actuator breaks and then the brush roll won't turn because it can't engage the switch.

open the bottom and you will see where the belt goes.clean off the motor shaft before putting on the new belt .the old belt might have left some rubber on the motor shaft.clean the shaft or your new belt won't last very long

Locate and purchase the correct belt for your Eureka vacuum cleaner from the local grocery or department store. Vacuum belts come in different sizes according to your model of vacuum. Check your owner's manual or the vacuum itself for your model number.
Turn your vacuum cleaner over so that the bottom of the unit is facing you. Remove the cover plate from the bottom by undoing the screws that are holding it in place with a screwdriver.
Locate the belt pulley rod near the back of the vacuum base coming out of the motor. With the vacuum cleaner base turned upside down and facing you, the motor and pulley rod should be up near the top of the base.
Slide the vacuum brush roller out of the slots at the bottom of the vacuum base and remove the old belt from the brush roller and pulley rod. With the brush roller off of the unit, clean the brush by removing any strings or cords wrapped around the tube.
Install the new belt by looping it over the belt pulley rod next to the motor and then looping around the end of the brush roller in the belt slot. Hold the brush roller and pull back on it to tighten the belt while you slide the roller back into the slots on the vacuum base.
Replace the base cover plate by snapping it back into place and securing it with screws. Turn vacuum back upright and turn it on to test the belt and verify the unit is working
