    I can't get the DOUBLE DAMN belt on either. I'm no 1/4 wit, so I think this is harder than it should be (maybe so I'll upgrade?). I'm getting past annoyed.

Take the bottom plate off, the top needs to come off also, if you don't see any screws, then on each side edge, from the bottom, use a flat blade screw driver, pry up on each spot and the top will come off. Put the belt over the brush roll, put the bottom plate back on, turn it back over and stretch the belt to go around the motor shaft, turn it by hand to make sure it moves freely, then put the top cover and knob back on. Just push down hard until it snaps into place.

Dyson DC17, front roller motor stopped


Are you sure it's dead? The motor will turn off if there's too much resistance. Unplug the vacuum, remove the obstruction, plug it back in and then firmly press the beater brush on/off button which is located next to the main on/off button.

Seems like the belt may be getting old and not picking up as much as it used to.


Belts need to be replaced periodically. If the belt is worn it will not pick up the way it should. You can get DC07 replacement belts here:

Dc17 -too much pet hair around the belt gears


I was having the same trouble and it was driving me nuts.  I tried cleaning and it did not work.  Then I tore the brush assembly off and looked up into where the little tooth gear is.  I saw something that did not look right.  There was a silver roller bearing laying down below the assembly.  I got some tweezers and found it was not attached to any thing.  I then cleaned out the pet hair and saw a spot where this roller goes that takes the slack out of the brush. It is a pain and takes alot of trying with pliers and prodding  with a screw driver, but I got the roller back where it goes.  It does not attach very solidly, but I put every thing back together and it works great so far.  It is a definite design flaw.  I found that you have to keep the main unit on  the floor when the brush is running.  Do not do stairs or pick it up and do couch cushions, that is when the bearing breaks loose.  Dyson needs to figure out a better design for this.  I was lucky to figure it out, but it is very hard to get to.  Again never pick up the unit when the brushes are engaged.

1800 vacuum cleaner belt replacement


Generic problem for all Vacuums
1800 vacuum cleaner belt replacement

How do you get into the belt to replace it?

Not knowing the brand name of the vacuum other than the 1800 vacuum cleaner belt replacement, normally the belt is located @ the bottom the vacuum attached to the brushroll and is held on by either screws, clips, or some even snap on – but mostly they use some type of screws to open the area to replace the belt, if needed contact the company website, include the brand name and the model number and request a schematic of the vacuum and that will give you an exploded view of how the vacuum assm goes together and also shows the belt replacement and how that is connected.

Hoover self-propelled windtunnel belt pops off


The correct belt is a 38528035. If the belt does not have this number printed on it, it is a generic belt and probably the wrong one. The pulley on the transmission is "convex" because this pulley design keeps the belt running in the middle. (a belt will always try to "climb up a hill") If the motor shaft and the pulley are not aligned properly, the belt will constantly throw off. This can be a result of a bad motor mount (located inside the motor compartment.) The motor shaft end has a rubber cover that absorbs vibration and keeps the motor positioned squarely. The handle could also be loose on the pivot. It is held down by two metal clamps that screw securely to the bottom, holding the handle on to the base and allowing for the handle to pivot backwards. This problem can be difficult to diagnose and I have had many in my shop for repair. It takes a seasoned and experienced repairman to find a solution to this problem, in most cases. The disadvantage I have here is that I cannot see your machines to inspect all the various things that effect the belt alignment. I hope that some of this information will help.
