No, Replacing the belt is one of the maintenance things you can do without voiding your warranty.

Do you have a place to buy one, or would you need me to find a website for you online?

I have a dyson - bought it 3 yrs. ago and the roller brush stoped working - doesnt pick up anything. Can you help? The brush doesn't roll or spin. Where can we take it to be fixed and is it under warrenty?...


Don't worry it's probably just that the belt has broken or stretched. Your actually supposed to change them yearly. So if its been three years thats probably the case. Here is a link to the belt you need and a manual with instrutions:

I was told that you do not produce the tristar vacuum..Is this true? And if so does that mean my warrenty on my vacuum is void?/


try this site to order tristar parts and accessories.

https://www.tristarvacuumscanada.com/

most warranties are from the brand, and not the place you bought it at. tristar still seems to be in business so your warrenty should be in tact.

The belt keeps breaking lately. I've had the


Before putting on the new belt make sure the brush turns freely and nothing is wraped around the bearing ends, if it is not turning free and is clean try a little grease or vasaline on the bearing ends. dont get any on the belt though. check the motor shaft also it should be clean and no residue from the old belts on it. it can be cleaned with rubbing alcohol and a rag, if really caked try a scotch pad .

Belt broke how do i fix it


To my knowledge model F7220900 SteamVac doesn't require a belt. Are you sure that is your model? If you have a different Hoover model you can get a replacement belt here:

The small belt that makes the beater bars spin broke. It is only two years old; repair shops tell me this involves replacing two belts because of some kind of clutch to the tune of $150! Is this possible...


A very easy replacement. The belts cost about £3 each. Yes, there are two belts and even if the clutch needed replacement, this is about £20 for clutch and both belts http://www.dysonpartsdirect.co.uk/dysonparts/dc07belts.shtml - this is a UK site, but I am sure you will find similar prices in the US/Canada. So, total price about $30 USD. What a rip-off - $150! It is very straight forward and just requires turning the turnbuckles that hold the bottom plate that covers the brush bar - then lift out the brush bar and you will then be able to pull out the old belt - hooking the new belt on the clutch mechanism is a bit tricky and requires a bit of dexterity and patience. Once re-assembled, make sure the brush bar rotates the correct way - it should brush to the back of the machine, i.e. when looking at it side on with the front of the machine pointing to the right, the brush bar should rotate clockwise. If not, turn unhook the belt from the clutch mechanism and hook it on the other way. Fiddly, but not difficult. I've done a few now and it takes about 15 mins.

Call Dyson. if its the belt they will send you a new one. If it was purchased in the past 2 years, it has a 5 year warrenty, and they will fix it for you, but call them first!

Broken belt how to fix i have a belt


Take off belt cover on the left side of the top cover, turn cleaner over, take out screw from red lock and remove, pull cap and brush roll out, unhook the cogged belt, then you can replace the pump belt thru that opening. Put belt over the pump pulley and stretched to go over the motor shaft. Then check the cogged belt and the cogged end of the pully to make sure that there are cogs, replace belt if there are cogss missing or belt is broke, if no cogs on the pulley, then you will have to replace the pump. Pulley only comes witht he pump.

Belts keep breaking


Check the brush roll ends to see if they have melted or frozen. They should turn freely, part #361869-1. Make sure the belt isn't being pinched somewhere.

I have a bissell proheat carpet cleaner purchased in 4-18-2005 for $169.99 from kohls I have used it 6 times and the last time the brushes would not move cause the belt was broken and the end of the pump...


That is something you would have to take up with Bissell. There is however no recall on the pump. They did change the pulley to a metal one. I know that if too much stuff coming off your carpet, or pet hair, will clog up the belt and pulley putting undo stress on the parts and can cause damage. Needs to be cleaned out once in a while.
