Question about Dirt Devil M086700 Vision Bagless Upright Vacuum

1 Answer

Missing part on motor shaft?

I've been replacing the belts on my Dirt Devil Vision Wide Glide Vacuum R086700 only to have them wear out prematurely. After taking a really close look, I discovered that the motor shaft was bare metal. Is that suppose to be the case? If not, what is the part that should be and how do I find it.

    I have the same problem. I can't find my manual and I can't find one on line to see if it's supposed to be a metal rod or some plastic caster on it to protect the belt.

The reason the belts are burning up so quickly is the old rubber from the other belts is still on the motor shaft.clean the shaft down to the polished finish then put on a new belt.make sure your brush roller turns freely .thats the other possiblity.the brush roller might be bad.sometimes hair and dirt get twisted around the ends and keeps it from turning

The belt keeps slipping off. I bought a new one and it too slips off after about a half hour of vacuuming.


check the motor shaft for loosness. when the bearings wear out and fail, the motor shaft will not be strait and the belt will ride off. also check for alignment and inspect the brushroll for proper installation, free rotation, and non melted endcaps. let me know if you have any questions

HOW DO YOU CHANGE THE BELT ON A DIRT DEVIL VISION VACUUM CLEANER?


With the vacuum unplugged, turn the machine beater bar side up. Locate the clips or screws that hold the plate over the beater bar and remove the plate. The beater bar sits in sockets just inside. Be careful in removing it; take your time and note how it comes out...this will make reassembly easier. Clean the debris while you have tha bar off and remove any debris thet you see in the vacuum hose area behind the bar....The new belt slips over the motor shaft behind the beater bar (further up in the cavity behind the b/b), then you slip it back onto the beater bar as you place the bar back nto the sockets. Test your work by revolving the bar a bit to make sure that everything is back in place. Replace the plate.
Regards,
