If the belt is breaking that quickly, there is one very prominent culprit that could be causing the problem. Check to see that the beater brush, the roller brush that the belt is supposed to drive, is turning freely on the unit. Remove the brush and clean as best you can. Add some WD40 at both ends of the beater brush by the hard rubber holders and turn the brush by hand to work it into the joint. Reassemble and be sure the belt is put on so the brush turns in the proper direction. Paul

How do I to change the belt on an eureka altima 12?


the belt is on the bottom right (looking at it from the front). the Eureka website does have the manual for download, http://www.eureka.com/service/manuals/80244.pdf

With the vacuum flattened (straightened) out, turn it over and remove the back roller cover, (2 screws) once off, the roller should just pop out on the opposite side (opposite from the belt). Don't forget to turn the roller to center the belt once you have it on.

The replacement from Eureka will work for certain, but any brand of belt that indicates it can be used on that vacuum will work.

Let me know if you have any additional questions.
