You need to plug in the actual model number and you should see an exploded view that will allow you to see how the belt is on the machine.

When we put the head on the belt will not work


Check to make sure the belt has been "scooped up" by the hook in the head. When you turn the knob on the head to remove it, it's supposed to "scoop" up the belt and pull it away from the shaft. If you don't have the belt on the hook when you place the head back on that means the belt isn't going around the shaft. You can just use your fingers to place it in position so the hook will grab it and then place it back on the body, rotate the know and it should be in contact with the shaft. The only other problem could be that the belt is broken and needs to be replaced.

How to fit a new drive belt


Hi,

There are different models of DC07 and the guide below is for the "standard" model. There are some slight variations on different DC07 models, but this should be more or less the same for all of them.


Disconnect the power and allow to cool for at least an hour before replacing the belt.


1. Sit on a chair, turn the vacuum upside down and hold it between your knees:

belectric_33.jpg

2. Undo the 3 fasteners at the positions shown in the picture below on the underside of the dyson (use a coin). Pivot the back edge of the sole plate upwards and lift off the sole plate which covers the brush bar:

belectric_34.jpgbelectric_35.jpg

3. Check for any debris arounf the brushes and the the spindle

4. If the old belt is still intact, slide the belt off the motor spindle first. Then pull the brushbar upwards and away from the base of vacuum. Make note of how the old belt feeds through the hole and how the brushbar was correctly inserted.

5. Remove the old belt from the brushbar and loop the new one over. Feed the new belt back through the hole and re-insert the brushbar.

Make sure the plastic tabs on the end of the brushbar fit back into the slots correctly and the end caps are in place:

6. Loop the open end of the belt over your thumb, twist 90 degrees, the stretch the belt over the motor spindle untwisting it as you hook it over. It is easier to hook your fingers over the back of the hoover (see picture) to give you extra leverage when stretching the belt. After hooking the belt over the spindle, check to make sure the belt is straight and there are no twists.

(Some people find it easier to stretch the new belt over the spindle before fully re-inserting the brush-bar)

belectric_38.jpgbelectric_39.jpg

7a If you hooked the belt over the motor spindle before full re-inserting the brushbar, re-insert the brushbar now (as described in step 5)

7b Re-attach the sole plate - Insert the 3 plastic tabs on the inside of the rubber bumper at the front of the vacuum and pivot it downwards back into place. Tighten the 3 fasteners again using a coin.

This should be everything you need to know to replace the belt in your DC07. Please post back if you have any difficulty replacing the belt or need further assistance.

Regards,
BElectric

Can’t get the belt to pick up on the hook when trying to get the head attachment working
Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. The belt hook sometimes can be extremely hard to rotate on the Kirby vacuum but to remove the belt you turn it counter clockwise and to install the belt you turn it clockwise.

The belt install on a Kirby is to raise the height adjustment to the highest level and then dial the belt off counter clockwise so it is loose and not on the fan pulley, release the top lever on the bell housing, then remove the bottom plate and unhook the brushroll on one side, slide the old belt off and then slide the new one on, replace the brushroll with the screws facing the carpet and re-hook the bottom plate on the Kirby. Then take the bell housing and hook that back on to the Kirby and lock it down. Then dial the belt on clockwise all the way and the belt should be on the fan pulley. The belt should be ready to go, plug in your Kirby and then do the step down on the vacuum height adjustment until the tone changes, then try to see id it picks up, if not go one more height adjustment and that should be the correct setting.

Floor Attachment


Try this,

With the floor nozzle off the machine spin the belt lifter around until the red arrows match. If you look at the side that attaches to the vacuum you should be able to see the belt up on the hook. If is not on the hook offf the machine you will never get the belt on. Once the belt is on the hook attach the floor nozzle to the front of the machine. At this point you need to spin the belt lifter back to where the green arrows match. Oh and another suggestion make sure your hieght adjuster the pedals with arrows are all the way up. Hopefully that helps you out.

Kirby generation3 instructions,


Hi there!

If you are talking about the main sweeper attatchment, Lift the light at the front of the upright machine, Make sure the belt inside the sweeper it is over the hook when you turn the handle on the front anti-clockwise to "belt off". Turning handle raises belt.
The hooks at the bottom of sweeper go over the bar at the base of the body. It helps to lift the wheels slightly.
When hooked on, rotate handle clockwise to "belt on" and close the light cover.

Is this solves the problem , please take a moment to rate as Fixya! If you need more help, just ask again on this question.
Thank you.

I can't get the new belt on my kirby


I can't get the new belt on my Kirby

I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure.
The Kirby Vacuum has a removable head and bottom plate and the belt is hooked on by a hook inside of the Kirby head of the vacuum. You need to slide the belt onto the Kirby brushroll to the center and the dial in front of the Kirby vacuum does rotate to the right – so @ this time you would dial the belt clockwise and the inside hook will pickup the inside belt and continue turning the dial / hook until it stops – look inside to see if the belt in on the fan shaft – if it is then install the bottom plate back on the vacuum and then install the head back on the Kirby or if it is newer the head is already on the motor assm.
Plug in the vacuum and if the belt stays on and the brushroll is tuning you have done it right – if not reverse the situation, unplug the vacuum and start over with the procedure. The hook will dial the belt onto the fan pulley if done correctly. Example: try to turn the dial on the front of the vacuum to see hoe it works and the way the dial will turn so that the procedure will be easier. The dial does turn hard when dialing the belt onto the pulley.

Kirby g4


first things first...take the powerhead off of the front of the kirby. If you look at where the powerhead connects to the front of the kirby and you'll see a large hook...turn the hook using the crank on the front of the powerhead so that the belt is pulled up and away from the brushes. (OFF position) The hook stretches the belt so that it can fit over the fan driveshaft (its the finger looking thing that sticks out of the front of the kirby when the powerhead is removed.)

Next, place the two "feet" of the powerhead onto the "perch" located on the front of the kirby (under the driveshaft opening)....lock it on by turning the silver lever on the top of the kirby (the one under the hood/light)


Now spin the knob on the front of the kirby from off to on. This releases the belt from that hook in the powerhead so it can rest on the driveshaft. Off means the belt is off of the drive shaft and the brushes won't spin. On means the belt is on the driveshaft and the brushes will be spinning. But remember, the belt has to be stretched open on that hook inside the power head BEFORE the powerhead is placed on the front of the kirby. Otherwise the belt won't be connected to the spinning driveshaft, and the brushes won't spin

The belt handle should be turned so the red arrow is lined up. Then make sure the belt is hooked on the inner assembly handle. Reconnect the vaccum assembly to vaccum and turn handle to allow green arrow to align and the belt is hooked on motor rod anmd your ready to vacuum.
