SOURCE: belt change for eureka capture

There 2 or 3 screw on the top cover to remove, then it comes off. Then you can get to the belt, inspect the brush roll while you have it out, make sure the ends move freely.

Eureka Fantom Thunder 12V/older model Need instructions on how to change belt and headlights.I could only find 1 screw on the bottom plate none on top plate. Thanks N J


there are two screws on the Fantom Thunder (It was not made by Eureka though) on the back of the unit just above the rear wheels. Remove these two screws and the top cover can be removed to get to the brushroll, belt and headlights. I believe the light bulbs in this unit are 12 Volt, not 110 volt.

The belt broke on my vacuum, how do i change it. the vacuum is a eureka model number 3041


Remove the base plate. It is held with screws accessible from under the unit.

Inside you will see the beater bar and the belt.
Remove the beater bar. This is self explanatory once you see inside the power head.
Remove the old belt.

Find a replacement from your local dealer or online.

Replacement is the reverse of removal.

This is a simple job you only need a screwdriver.

Good luck, please rate this answer. Thanks.

I have a Eureka Bravo! 7.0 vaccum cleaner, how do I change the belt


Turn the vac over so the brush is facing up.. There is a cover plate that surrounds the brush.. Take the screws out and remove the cover plate.. Pull up on the side of the brush that the belt is on.. Replace the belt.. The belt goes around the metal shaft and the brush.. Push the brush back in place.. It might be a bit tough going in because the belt causes some tension.. Put the cover plate and screws back in..

Good luck ! Please don’t forget to rate well ;o)

Change belt on a eureka


With the vacuum unplugged, turn the machine beater side uo. On the plate that surrounds the beater bar, look for release tabs to open the plate. Flip them and set the plate to the side. The beater bar rides in sockets. Remove the bar, install the new belt around the motor shaft, then work the beater back into the sockets. Replace the plate. Test your work by rotating the beater bar by hand, making sure that it is reinstalled correctly.

Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. Knowing the brand name and model number for the vacuum but I can give you a generic way of changing the belt. You 1st need to remove the bottom plate by screws, levers or clips, then you can get @ the belt, if not then you should remove the top cover and then you can get @ the belt. 1st remove the belt from the brushroll and install the new belt on the pulley side of the brushroll and then use a belt puller or a screwdriver with a bend on the end and then stretch the belt onto the motor pulley and then track the belt in a straight line so that is running in a straight line. Replace the bottom plate and the belt change should be done. Please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area.

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.
