Here is the link to the detailed instructions for belt changing. When you take the brushroll out, make sure that the brushroll spins freely. If it doesn't it will burn up your belts and needs to be replaced. (brushrolls available also by using this link)

The roller won't go around


If the roller doesn't run, make sure the AC power wires are all connected to the bottom roller section.
If that looks ok then look inside to see if the roller is loose or off the motor.

How can I get the brush roller to work


HI, it's Jim from Crucial Vacuum!

First things first, unplug your vacuum and turn it over. Check your brush roll for any large amount of debris. This usually comes in the form of carpet fibers, or hair strands wrapped around the brush roll. Try manually rotating the brush roll, this will help unclog any hidden debris.

Take off your vacuums bottom plate, this is usually held on by two screws on opposing sides of the bottom of your vacuum. Remove the brush roll and examine the belt to see if it is applying tension to the brush roll. If the belt is loose this would cause the brush roll to not work properly.

What's the quality of the bristles on the roll? If they look worn down, or loose then it's time to replace the brush roll itself.

Belts aren't broke roller still won't roll


Belt dosent have to be broke it may be stretched. It needs around 30lbs of pressure to roll the brush on carpet.
If it dose not roll off carpet at all the brush bearing are locked up. You may be able to remove the roller and check theme. Most likely you wil need a new roller brush.

The belts may look fine but may be stretched and worn. Replace them. Make sure brush spins free. Idler pulley should tighten belt tension when handle is released

Oreck brush only turns a tiny bit and belt pulley get hot belt not turning much either


If your brush is not turning properly then you need to check the bearing ends to see if there is any hair, string, or thread wound around the brush shaft. If there is and you can remove it, that might fix your problem otherwise I would suggest getting a new brush roller.

There are 2 plastic screws that pivot 90 degrees on the top of the front nozzle. Turn them and lift off the hood. You will see the brush roll and belt. Remove the brush roll and clean off any debris or hair, also from metal caps at the ends of the roller. Be careful not to loose the 2 washers under the end caps. Place the new belt on the motor shaft that sticks out of the main body, then place the brush roll pulley against the belt and pull forward and lock the roller in position. Spin the roller by hand to make sure that the belt is aligned properly. Place the hood back on the front nozzle and turn the plastic screws to tighten. Have fun cleaning.

HOW TO CHANGE A BELT


Hi there...You will need a Phillips screwdriver to get the bottom cover off.Remove the screws and then remove the bottom cover.Clean out any excess dirt in the general area of the roller bar and motor assembly area.Place one end of the belt over the steel shaft of the motor and then roll the other end of the belt on to the end of the roller bar.placing the belt on the top of the roller bar and roll the bar slowly and feed the belt onto the roller bar until it is completely in place.Replace the bottom cover and put all the screw back in.
Plug your vacuum in and turn it on with the roller bar off the floor, in other words let it run for 10 seconds until you put it on the carpet allowing the belt to position itself properly on the roller bar.
