How do I change the belt in an upright vacuum?
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. Well, I can try to tell you a how to for a generic vacuum, but we really need more information as per the brand name and model # in order to tell you the best way to change the belt on your current vacuum. Most vacuums have a removable bottom plate o which will release by screws, clamps or levers and the bottom plate should come off or the top cover will come off. Then the belt should be exposed. Then cut off the belt, lift up on the brushroll side where the pulley is and place the belt on the pulley, then reinstall the brushroll – now use a belt puller or screwdriver and pull / stretch the belt onto the motor pulley – then track the belt by rolling the belt in a straight line – if the install worked then reinstall the top cover and or the bottom plate. 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.
Thanks, Don the Vac Man
