Belt keeps slipping off need to check the correct belt number and what can i do


What does it slip off of, the brush or the motor? Are you sure that it is in correctly, as there are usually 2 ways of putting the belt on. If put on correctly, it should not contact any part of the vacuum except the motor shaft and the brush. Also check check there is not a buildup of hair, etc. where the belt goes around the brush. I would try turning the brush by hand and see if anything is interfering with the path of the belt. There is always a chance that some part of your vacuum has broken or malfunctioned and is touching the belt and making it come off. Also, make sure that the brush is correctly installed.

The tension on the belt should be pretty high so that it is hard to pull out of place. If not, you could have the wrong belt. I believe that this takes a type "U" belt if that is any help. Hope this helps and good luck!

Turns on but doesn't turn over.


I would first check your filter as a dirty filter will sometimes produce this probIem. If that doesn't work take a look at the brush bar. I don't believe that these vacuums have a belt (I could be wrong about this and a broken belt will disable the brush) so the only thing that I can recommend is to unplug it, turn it over and see if there is anything obstructing the roller brush such as string, tinsel, rocks, etc. See if you can turn it with your hand without using much force. Good luck!

Brush won't spin. Put it back on the ribbed belt


Make sure the driving motor (power on) is turning (without the belt attached). Make sure the brush turns freely when the belt is off (it's probably jammed with wound-up hair, thread, and other debris--remove the brush and clean/lightly oil the bearings). Check the tension of the belt which should be fairly firm--replace if sloppy. Rotate the motor shaft by hand when everything is back together and make sure the brush can be driven without the belt trying to jump off. Hope this helps!

Carpet roller brush will not turn


You probably need a new belt. You can get kenmore belts here:

Kirby g4 problem


1. Take the brush roll and belt off the vacuum. Put the head back on the vac.
2. Turn it on and see if the bag inflates with good power. Does it sound normal? This will tell you if the problem is with the motor. If you have a good inflation of the bag and a bad noise in the motor, you need to take it in for service. If the motor is fine, you need a new spinning brush assembly.

The screw heads of the brush roll face towards the floor so you can adjust them while the brush is in the vacuum. When you turn them clockwise the brush comes down and gets closer to the floor for better carpet cleaning. You should also change the belt on that vac once a year. Just because the belt isn't broken doesn't mean it's o.k. Once they stretch out the power from the motor is lost and the brush won't clean anything.

The brushes wont turn,but it has good suction for the hose


you have to remove the bottom cover to inspect the belt. Usually if the brush is jammed, you will smell an odor similar to burning rubber. In the absence of that smell, its likely the belt. Its easy to replace

Belt will not spin


3 things may be wrong. 1 - brush motor burned up or disconnected. 2 - belt damaged, stretched or missing cogs on belt. 3 - belt is turning but brush roller is not turning due to bearings froze. In all 3 of these cases, the vacuum should be taken in to a repair shop.
