Placing belt back on vacuum it keeps braking
Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. Dirt Devil M087700SV Bagless Upright Vacuum. From what I can see you may have 2 problems. #1. It may be that your brushroll is not spinning freely and could be bound up with thread, dust and dirt on the bearing ends, or #2. The motor pulley is not spinning freely – you should take the motor pulley and try to spin it and if it spins freely then it must be the brushroll, either cleanout or replace the bearings or buy a new brushroll and start over. 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.

Bissell carpet cleaner belt fell off, how do I replace it


Which belt? There are 2 on a Pro Heat. The pump belt which is pretty straight forward to put on. If it's the brush belt you will probably have to take the brush off. Re-rail the belt and then put the brush back in the holder arms while keeping the belt in the groves. BUT if the belt came off in the first place it's probably shot. Before you go to the trouble, get a new belt.

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.

The beater brush wont spin because the brush roll is always in the off position. Moving the carpet/hard switch doesn't turn it on.


Hello :
Try this please :
Switch the carpet/bare floor dial back & forth 5 times, ending on carpet. Tilt the handle back as if to vacuum upright & lay the vacuum on its side so it is resting on the side opposite the carpet/bare floor dial. Turn the vacuum on.
Or Maybe the belt is broke. You will have to replace the belt before the roller can spin. You must have run over something in the carpeting like string or whatever to have it break. Happens all the time. Get several replacement belts to keep as spares while you're at it as nothing is worse then having to vacuum and no spare belts.
........................
Try this also please :
Things You'll Need: Phillips head #2 screwdriver Replacement belt for your vacuum model Spray lubricant, such as silicone spray or teflon lube.
1: Unplug the vacuum. Never work on an electrical appliance when it is plugged into an electrical outlet.
2: Turn the vacuum over and locate the plastic or metal plate that covers the rotating brush. Remove this plate.
Note: This plate is typically attached by a small number of Phillips head screws or by levers that turn and lock the plate in place. In either case, removing this plate is a simple task.
3:Identify the vacuum's rotating brush. This brush should have a black rubber belt wrapped around it, and stretched around the metal shaft of an electrical motor mounted somewhere toward the back of the vacuum.
4:Verify that the brush will rotate freely. Examine both ends of the brush to ensure that no threads, string, yarn, etc. have become wrapped around the ends and thus inhibited a free rotation.If there is foreign debris, remove the brush by sliding it up, away from the bottom of the vacuum. Remove the debris
5:Lubricate both ends of the rotating brush with the spray lubricant. Replace the brush into the grooves which hold it in place
Replace the existing belt on the brush assembly, or replace a broken belt with a new vacuum belt.
6:Verify that the brushes now turn freely when back in place and that the motor shaft turns as the brush rotor turns.
PLEASE DON'T FORGET TO RATE !

Belt Keeps Coming Off


Replace the belt with afresh, proper sized one. Yours is stretched. It will be shiny on the underside. hoover belts are meant to fit snug. Check the bearings on the end of the brush roll to remove dirt and thread. The proper belt will need to be stretched into place using the brush for leverage. Likely that your low carpet is more dense causing enough drag to throw the stretched belt.

We have had three belts break on your hoover vaccum cleaner u5472-940. It is easy to replace, you just remove the plastic part over it, put belt on wheel and then put it back on. Any idea on why the belt...


sometimes when you buy belts from the walmart or target, they are not at the correct specification and they brake as soon as you turn on the machine. i would suggest that you buy these belts from the company.

Brush froze up and keeps breaking belts


I had the same problem but I found that I had replaced belt incorrectly. After placing one end of belt around pully, it has to be run behind the "belt disengager" which looks like a 1/2" wide metal tab just past pulley. After placing belt correctly I had no more belt, burning smell or brush problems.

How do you change the belt on a kirby sentia vacuum cleaner?


ok Imussati here is how you change the belt take the roller brush out and put the belt in the center of the roller brush place the roller brush back in nowtake the name plate and twist it until the hook graps the belt it may seem like it is to tight but keep turning it once you get the belt twisted to the highest point put the nozzle back on the vacuum and lock it down then turn the face plate back the way it was and it should allow the belt to slip around the driveshaft and you are ready to roll. hope this helps

Belt is broken


Most upright vacuums will have 2 screws on the bottom of the vacuum. Remove both screws and snap off bottom cover to get inside of the head. Remove old / broken belt and slide agitator off from the head unit. Stretch new belt with both hands then place around the agitator and pulley coming out of the motor. Place the agitator back into place (there will be some resistance from the new belt, but that is common). Put back on the bottom cover and place back the screws. You should be all set then. Hopefully this helps.

Re-connecting Vacuum Head


on the kirby head is a square knob with the kirby name on it. use your finger and pull out the belt and rotate the knob until the metal pawl engages the belt. keep turning until it stops. the belt should be in the correct position to install the head. place the whole head onto the lower two tangs and lift up. now rotate the wedge clamp until it stops. then rotate the belt lifter till the knob is straight.
