SOURCE: belts breaking frequently
I had the same problem. Broke 2 belts before I got online and noticed this site! What I found was, the roller ends were not turning freely. I had cleaned the hair (nasty) off the roller, but the ends were still not able to spin around without some force.
What I did was, removed the roller and on the 2 ends there are 2 black plastic caps which fit over the bearing, I removed the plastic caps and put a little WD-40 on the bearing, or any industrial lubricant, even new motor oil will work. After putting on the WD-40, I spun the roller end around a few times and the WD-40 lubricated the bearings and Voila! The roller end spun freely!! I put the black caps back onto the bearings on both sides, reinstalled a new belt, it's been working great since.
It saves the cost of a new roller.

Had exactly the same problem with my upright Eureka Model 5893 bagless. Eventually, the handle would get hot, and finally it just quit. When handle was disassembled, the wires were melted and it was toast. Ordered a switch after talking to several repair men. Talked to Eureka, too, and they were absolutely no help. Cheap wiring and switch made in China. Good luck trying to find a switch. vacuum-depot.com has switches, so you might try there, but make sure you get the 3-prong switch (same switch used on Eureka's Genesis). It is Part #27871.

According to the Eureka Part diagram for your particular model vacuum, your vacuum uses Eureka Style U Belts. Eureka makes actually 2 different styles of U belts.
The first style is the standard U belt, Eureka part number 54312. This belt is probably the one that came standard on your model. You may purchase this belt from the link below;
The other type of Style U belt that will fit your model is the Eureka Extended Life Style U Belt, Part 61120B. The Extended U belt is more durable, and lasts longer then the Eureka Standard U belt. You may purchase the Extended U belt here;
Now, if you are quite sure how to change your belt, you may visit the link below to see the owners manual for your Eureka 2961BVZ that will give you step by step instructions on how to change the belt;
I really hope that this was helpful to you in finding and fixing the belt for your Eureka. If you did find this helpful, please be kind and rate my repair solution as helpful by clicking the thumbs up icon in the lower right hand corner below. I really do appreciate it, thank you.
Feel free to request a repair clarification if you have any questions about the procedure of installing the belt on your Eureka, I'll be happy to help.
