I have a model 560 Kirby how do I put the belt on

Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. the Kirby you have is an older Kirby with a removable head or you call it a bell housing so you need to dial off the belt counter clockwise and the release the front lever on the bell housing, and then release the bottom plate and remove one end of the brushroll and then slide the belt off of the brushroll. B4 you put the new belt on the Kirby check to see if the brushroll spins freely, also to see if the brushroll is free from the thread and hair buildup, if that is free – then slide the new belt onto the brushroll and the re-insert the brushroll with the screw head on each side facing the carpet and lock down the bottom plate, then use the Kirby spoon/ hook to dial the belt on to the fan pulley and dial the spoon/hook clockwise until the belt is on the fan pulley and the place the bell housing on the Kirby and then lock down the lever so that it is hooked up and ready to go, plug it in and turn it on. If you need further assistance please feel free to contact the 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.

Replaces the belt on dirt devil dynamite pluse model put everything back together started it and it burt the new belt up that fast. I put it around the beater brush and the metal bar I thought it should go...


The metal bar you put it around if the bar itself does not spin it is going to burn the belt up. Every thing that the belt is supposed to go around has to turn or the belt will rub on the piece not moving and brake.

The belt on my vacuum cleaner model 6596 bissel powerforce bagless turbo keeps breaking. As soon as I put on a new belt and start it up the belt snaps. It is the durabelt meant for this vacuum model....


I would guess you aren't centering the belt correctly, thus it's edge is caught between the brush and another solid object, causing the breakage.
When you get the belt on the the brush and the brush back in place, turn the brush a few times by hand to make sure it's not catching on anything. After you get the powerhead put back together, do this again. It's a common problem if the powerhead isn't assembled correctly.

Here's a video clip from the Bissell site demonstrating changing the belt.

Installing a belt


1. Unplug the vacuum
2. Take the bottom cover over the brush off by removing the 3 screws
3. Switch the brush roll control lever to bare floor
4. Take the roller brush out
5. Put the belt around the small pulley from the motor
6. As you are putting the roller brush back in put the belt around the space on the roller brush - center the belt on that space - THE BELT WILL NOT BE TIGHT BUT THAT'S NORMAL
7. Reinstall the bottom cover with the 3 screws

THE BELT DOES NOT GO AROUND THE SILVER PULLEY CONNECTED TO THE BRUSH ROLL CONTROL LEVER

Putting on a belt on a vacuum


Greetings from GoVacuum.com,

Replacing a Belt on an Upright vacuum can vary from model to model, but it is basically going to be the same for most upright models.

First you will need to access the belt. Most upright vacuums this is done by turning the machine upside down, and most you'll need to remove the bottom plate by unscrewing (usually 4) screws that hold the plate on. You should see screws that are closest to the actual roller brush, simply remove these screws, and take the bottom plate off. If the machine is a Eureka, or Kenmore, the top agitator housing will be removed from the top of the vacuum, not the bottom.

Once you have removed the bottom plate, or top agitator housing, you should be able to see the belt (or broken belt) along with the roller brush. Remove the broken belt. Make sure that you purchase the correct belt by taking the make, and the model number (located on the back or bottom of the machine). Please note that a broken belt may be 4-5 inches longer then a new belt, as they stretch a lot before they finally break.

Once you have the new belt, you will need to remove the roller brush. Pay attention to how the roller brush fits into the agitator housing, usually there will be fittings on the end of the roller that have to be put in a specific place, or in a certain way to work right. After the roller brush is taken out of the machine, you will need to wrap one end of the belt around a metal pulley on the opposite side of the roller brush. Most pulleys are located where the main housing (handle part) of the vacuum meet the the agitator (floor part) part of the machine. Anyways, wrap one end of the belt around the pulley, and then put the roller brush through the other end of the belt. This is where you'll need to put some elbow grease into it. You'll need to stretch the roller brush and belt so that the brush and belt are stretched back to the place where you took the roller brush out of the vacuum.

Once you have replaced the roller brush with a new belt around it, pull the belt a few times to make sure that the brush spins while you are pulling it, to ensure that the belt is not pinched, and is spinning freely.

I hope this helps. Here's a video showing how to replace the belt on a Hoover Windtunnel Self Propelled model; Feel free to email me if you'd like to send me the model number of your vacuum, this way I can be a little more specific, and give you part numbers. I have all belts for all vacuums in stock. Email; chris.jones@govacuum.com. 1-866-468-2288.

BELTS ON WINDTUNNEL VACUUMS


Greetings from GoVacuum,

Here's an instructional video that we made showing how to change the belt on a Hoover Windtunnel upright. If your model is not a self propelled model, basically follow the same insturctions, expect instead of placing the belt over the pulley, just put the belt through the roller brush, and stretch the roller brush back into the agitator housing.
Please feel free to send me an email if you have any other questions. My email address is chris.jones@govacuum.com.

Thanks,

Hey where does the belt go?


You didn't give your model #, but most Hoover's, if you turn the vac ove, take out the screws to remove the plate covering the brush roll and belt. The number of the belt is on the belt, unless it is worn off, it is also on the metal tag that the model number is on. Put belt around the motor shaft or pulley, then around the brush roll and stretch it to put brush roll in place. If this is a wind tunnel, it has 2 belts, one for brush roll, which is a V belt, and a flat belt for the motor to the pulley.

Hoover belt replacement


Turn vac. over, remove the buttom plate over the brush roll, then at the bottom edge of the top cover, using a flat blade screwdriver, insert into the slots and pry up to unlock the tabs, then the top cover will come off. Put the belt on the brush roll and feed the belt thru the opening and put stretch it over the motor shaft. Put the top cover back on and push to lock the tabs.

Windtunnel belt


You didn't state your model number, they have different ones. Take off the bottom plate, the belt and brushroll will be exposed. If you canned see the motor shaft to put the belt on, then the top cover will have to removed also. Usually is a couple of screws from the bottom to take out, then you wil see a slot on each side from the bottom, use a flat blade screwdriver, put intoi slot and pry up to release locking tabs, top will come off. Belt goes from brush roll to motor shaft. If this is the model that uses 2 belts, then the belt goes from the motor shaft to the bigger pulley, and the Vee belt goes from the smalled pulley to the brush roll.
