on the bottom plate are 3 spots, one in the center and one at each corner, that need a flat head screw driver to loosen. turn left to unlock, this will remove the plate so you can clear the debris from the brush.

How do i change the belt on a hoover model #U4509

Lay the unplugged vacuum upside down and remove the bottom plate covering the brushroll to remove the brushroll and belt. Make sure brushroll bristles aren't worn, replace it also if needed. Make sure brushroll will spin freely. Put new belt around motor shaft then around brushroll. Pull on brushroll with both hands to get enough leverage to stretch the belt far enough to drop the brushroll in place. Put bottom plate back on and insure brushroll will turn by hand before you turn it back on..

Make sure vacuum is unplugged. Lay. Vacuum upside down and remove Bottom plate. Pull brushroll from nozzle housing, pull metal end caps from brush and remove any hair and debris. Put new belt around motor shaft then around brushroll. Put one hand on each side of belt and pull brushroll to stretch belt far enough to drop brushroll into position. Make sure brush spins freely. Install bottom plate. Make sure brushroll turns freely, if not, make sure bottom plate is not restricting the belt before you turn the vacuum on. Repeat the process in 6 months. You may be surprised to see how much a belt stretches and loses elasticity after it's been on your vacuum for 6 months.

So the beater bar on our dyson DC28 animals to starts to turn then stops. Is there a video or schematic break down out there? Would like for reference for dismantle and rebuild. Thx, Mike

The beater bar on his machine and other dysons dc01,dc07,dc14 is directly driven by the main vacuum motor via a rubber belt(some models have safety clutches). There are no reset switches- the three tabs on the base are to allow removal of the sole plate. If something jams in the beater while operating and left for long enough (about 1 minute) the belt can burn out and need replacement. the belts are cheap, good skill is required to remove the sole plate to install a new belt because they are so tight.

Simplicity F3500-- how do I get the bottom off to change the belt?

To change the belt on the Simplicity F3500, unplug the vacuum and turn it upside down. There are two tabs (one on each side) behind the beater bar that hold the cover on the vacuum. Press these tabs inward and lift the bottom plate away from the unit.

Then remove the brushroll and the worn or broken belt from the pulley on the side of the brush roll and the drive shaft. Loop the new belt over the driveshaft and the brushroll. Replace the brushroll in the housing and turn it by hand. Make sure that the belt is seated on the driveshaft and pulley with no twists. Also check that all of the rotating parts will move.

Then put the bottom cover back on by aligning the back hinges and then pressing the plate down until both sides click.

For pictures of the cover removal process, look at page 15 in the manual. The direct link is . Most Simplicity vacuum manuals are available at their support site: .

I hope this helps.

Beater head makes loud noise on 'carpet' mode

Possibly a belt problem, but more than likely a brushroll problem.
The bearings are cheap and nasty, and are prone to siezing.

If you visit they have alot of info on repairing dyson cleaners AND they sell the parts, cheapest ive seen online.

Hope that helps

Can’t replace a belt to a dyson dc14 all surfaces.

I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. You need to remove the bottom plate of the vacuum and then lift up the pulley side of the brushroll and then take off the old belt and install the new belt the replace the brushroll. Then take a belt puller or a screwdriver with a bend on the end and pull the belt onto the motor pulley and then track the belt in a straight line. If you have a problem with the belt change then refer to your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area. 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.

How do i change the brushroll belt on the mce480 vacuum cleaner?

I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure.1st tune your vacuun over to expose the bottom plate and the brushroll / belt area,
and the bottom plate is held on by either screws or clips, remove the bottom plate and tkae of the belt. When you install the belt, place the belt on the brushroll pulley 1st, then if you have a screwfriver with a bend or hook on the end the pull the belt onto the motor shaft then roll the brushroll/belt so theat it makes the belt run straight. Place the bottom plate on the unit and turn it on to make sure the belt stays on and then put in the screw or clips to secure the bottm plate.
