belt doesnt have to be broken, check the metal arm on the vacuum, see if there is build up of old rubber from previous belts, clean the arm that spins the belt and double check to make sure u have the correct belt

There are 2 or 3 screws on the top to take out and the top cover will come off. Belt is #61120A U long life, brush roll if you need it is #62365-2. If the brushs look ok and the ends turn freely, then it is probably ok. The belt goes around the brush roll then up to the motor shaft.

hey i had the same problem with mine, (standing over it and looking straight down) there should be two screws on the top of the yellow cover, one on each side, take those out and the yellow cover should easliy pop off. if the white ink is off the belt or the belt isnt tight than replace, once off just pop the wheel brush (which has the belt around it) up out of its socket and take off of the belt from the wheel brush and motor's metal pole, then put on the new one just like the old one was. let me know how it works out, redsox_belcher@yahoo.com

if the belt has been slipping it may have pollished the moteror brush shaft and it just slips. take a small piece of sand paper or enery cloth and ruffen up the shaft to give it some grip.
if the metal shaft of the motor has been heated up due to slippage it will take some doing to ruffun it as the shaft will be hardend due to heat

SOURCE: How do I change belt on Eureka Capture

lay your vacuum completely on its back on the floor, like you are going to vacuum under a bed, then turn it over on its "belly", you should be able to see the bottom of the unit, where there are 2 small wheels ..... look where embedded in the plastic are #'s 1-4 there are 4 screw pockets, 2 in front and 2 in rear, those are deep, so you need a phillips screwdriver with a long skinny barrel to get in the deep pocket.remove those 4 screws, stand the unit upright, then grasp both sides of the "hood" of the unit remove the the plastic cover, you should see the belt on the right side as you face the vacuum. If the belt is broken, just pull up on the brushroll , removing it from the base. Clean any hair,thread, etc.. from the brushes, and ends , place new belt over the motor shaft (looks like a nail sticking out toward the back of the belt area) slide the brushroll through the other loop of belt in the belt groove, then slide the stop sign shaped end pieces in the grooves in base , pressing down until it is seated in place, gently turn the brushroll with fingers watching the belt making sure it is staying straight , then place the hood of vacuum back in place, make sure it fits correctly, recline handle again all the way down, roll vacuum over again to place screws back in bottom of unit.

How to change belt on eureka step saver model 53A


Take it to your local vac shop. At my store we only charge $10 to install a belt, and that includes the belt.

Change the belt


Hi There,

Here's how you can replace the belt on your Eureka SmartVac 4870. I have taken pictures of the repair to help you better with this.

Here's what you'll need in order to complete this repair:

- Eureka Style R Extended Life Replacement Belt, Part 61110
- Eureka SmartVac Model 4870 Roller Brush Assembly, Part 61520 (Only if the brush no longer spins, or the brushes are worn out)
- Phillips head screw driver

Step 1. Turn the vacuum upside down so that the brush roller is facing upwards. Unscrew the three screws that I've highlighted in red.

Step 2. Remove the bottom plate after unscrew the three red highlighted screws. Once you remove the bottom plate, you'll have full access to the roller brush and belt area. Remove the roller brush by pulling straight up on the roller brush itself. Discard old belt, and test roller brush to ensure that it spins freely by holding the very end of each side, also called the bearing caps with just your finger tips. Try spinning the brush with your thumbs. The brush should spin several times around with each spin. If you notice the brush doesn't spin at all, or if you feel some resistance when you spin the brush, this means that your bearings are either gone, or will be soon. It may be time to consider a new roller brush at this time.

Step 3. Remove the new Eureka Style R belt from the packaging, and wrap one end around the the metal pin, on the opposite side of the roller brush. This pin is actually the motor shaft that spins the belt, which spins the brush.

Step 4. Wrap the other end of the belt through the side of the roller brush that has the pulley, and use the roller brush to stretch the brush roll back into the agitator housing. Make sure the end caps fit in the housing correctly by making sure there are no gaps between the roller brush housing and the end caps of the roller brush.

Step 5. After reinstalling the roller brush back into the housing with the belt attached, pull the belt forwards towards the brush. The brush should spin when you do this. Make sure that the belt is not pinched underneath of the roller brush or this will cause the belt to break immediately when you turn the vacuum back on.

Step 6. Reinstall the bottom plate, making sure that the little notches on the front end of the bottom plate tucked underneath of the reverse notches on the bottom housing of the vacuum cleaner. Tighten all 3 screws back into the bottom plate. Make sure the vacuum is set to carpet mode, and turn the vacuum on.

If you have any questions about this repair, or if you notice that the roller brush stops when the brushes hit the carpeting, please just use the clarification request form here on the Fixya repair page. I will then be happy to walk you through a little more advanced repair of replacing the clutch in the Eureka SmartVac that controls the rug/floor switch. Most of the time though the belt will be all the vacuum needs.

I hope that this was helpful information to you. If this helped you, please be so kind and rate the repair as helpful by clicking on the thumbs up icons in the top corner of this repair.

Thank you very much,

Chris J.

My eureka 5902 4D bagless uprights roller brush stopped spinning. The belt is ok. This model has a sliding switch for roller speed. The brush should spin when you release the handle via the foot release....


The same thing happened to me about a year ago with this very model.
The issue on mine was a small, copper-colored metal wheel that attaches to the end of the brush roller. You'll need to remove the top cover (there are several screws).

Once it's off, you should see the belt, the beater brush, and the metal gear. The gear didn't fit correctly - so the motor just spins without moving the brush. I ended up going to the store and buying superglue that withstands high tempuratures, then gluing the gear to the motor's shaft... and hammering the thing into place before the glue 'set' too much. ...Not fun, but it's working and has been ever after. I can take photos of the thing if need be.

My Eureka The boss Smartvac Model #4870 roller brush won't turn even on the highest setting and the belt smells hot. we took the belt off. How can you tell if it needs replaced?


Just by what you explained I can tell that it needs to be replaced. The belt doesn't have to be broken to need replacing, if it is stretched and worn then it will slip on the motor shaft and not turn the brush roll and get hot. Here is a link to the belts you need and the manual which has instructions:

Brush is not rolling. I have checked the belts


Unhook the belt see if the motor shaft turns by itself. If it doesn't then the motor is the issue. If it runs then its probably the belt or the brush roll.

The brush won't spin - but the silver stem it on is spinning


The belt may look fine but it is stretched. The silver stem is the motor shaft. Replace the belt with a genuine one by model #. It will be 20-30% smaller. Check that your brush roll turns freely by hand. Pop the nylon caps off the end to remove hair and thread.

Vacuum belts smokes and needs to be replaced 3x's in 6 months is tis normal or did I get a lemon


brush roller berings may be faulty making the brush stick and motor shaft spins against belt causing melting. remove brush roller, clean out end berings and see if ends spin freely or if they stick. if they stick, you might need to replace brush roller.
