Remove the three screws on the top of the vacuum base. You may need to recline the handle to the lowest setting as if you are going to vacuum under a bed. Turn the height selector to the side (either right or left), lift off cover of base. Your belt area should be to the right side. Hook new belt on the motor shaft at the back...it kind of looks like a nail sticking out. Pull the brush roll out, clean off any thread, hair, etc. Place grooved end of brushroll in loop of belt, replace brush roll, stretching belt into place. Rotate by hand a few times to make sure belt stays straight.

The turbo tool for pet hair on my Hoover power vac doesn't rotate. I removed the brush and cleaned but still doesn't work. Suction is fine without the tool attached.


Have you checked the drive belt on the pet head? Mine comes apart and a thin belt is driven by the propellers which in turn drive the brush head via the drive belt. To check turn propeller and see if brush head rotates if not belt missing broken / jammed

Dirt devil jaguar pet vacuum - no power goes to vacuum


I've literally disassembled the ENTIRE vacuum. I got it for a dollar at the local goodwill with the intent on converting it into a dust collector for my mini workshop. As others have said. The suction is abysmal. I don't think it could beat a dust vac. And that's with just the motor hooked to dirt collector. No brush, no belt, no carpet adjusting. Just a motor, dirt collector and hose. Zero suction. Removed the hose, zero suction. Remove the dirt collector, solid suction. Dunno if the dirt collector is missing a part, but I doubt that based on other replies. I'm guessing all the holes in the red tube of top chamber are the issue. But I can't easily access it. I think I may end up cutting it open to try plugging some holes or some other modifications. But this vac is garbage in its original configuration

You can take off the power head and look in that whole where the belt is and see if there is a paper towel or something in there clogging it up.

Also tug on the belt and make sure it is tight - because if it is loose it is broken and you need a new belt.

While you have the head off, put on your hose attachment and use it to **** out any debris stufk in there.

The machine will not suction - it will spray and spin the brushes but will not suction - the power is going to the machine, but it will not suction.


Disconnect the suction hose. While running, check the suction port if it works, by putting a piece of paper. If the paper is taken in, then it is oK. Now, check the suction Hose for breaks or opening before the suction head. Breaks or opening breaks the suction power at the suction head. Loose connection between the suction pipe and the suction port also must be check as this will also cause the same
problem. You may need to replace the suction hose

Lack of suction on the main part of the vacuum


There are two easy things to consider if you have a lack of suction on the vacuum:

1. Replace the bag and check the hose leading to the bag to see that it's not blocked.

2. Replace the belt.

You may think that the belt doesn't have anything to do with suction, but it does. When belts are worn and stretched, they don't work efficiently.

How to for Belt replacement and solution to suction loss


You say it lost its suction, then you also say this is plenty of suction power, seems you cant figure out the prob. Try cleaning the fan on the suction blower. The blades can get chocked with dust which will give you a reduced suction.
