Turn the vacuum over so you are looking at the brush.Remove the screws and that plate will come off.The belt fits on the brush,in a groove.The other end of the belt fits on a small wheel about 6 inches back,form the groove on the brush.There may be another plate over the wheel.When you get the plate off the bottom you will see what I am talking about.It is not hard.

Dyson I sucked a towel up by mistake an it started smoking an burning smell turned off power what damage will I av caused


As a general rule when you pick up a sock or towel or anything laying on the floor that is too big for the vac to handle, it generally stops the brush roll, which in turn stops the belt and that in turn makes the belt burn in two in about 20 seconds, if you don't catch it in time. Now on most vacuums this isn't a major repair. Most folks, with a modicum of mechanical knowledge can change a belt on about 90% of the upright vac's around, but the Dyson's aren't in that 90%, they're in the ten % that make it incredibly difficult to change a simple belt. You'll need to take it to your friendly neighborhood vac repair shop and have them put on a new belt, depending on which belt that broke. Have them give you an estimate first. You may be surprised at what it costs to have a belt changed, if it's the one that's on the clutch assembly.

The brush on the vac. does it spin on it own or only when the vac is in position


You probably need a new belt. You didn't specify your brand or model but you can get replacement belts here:

Replacement Vacuum Belts

If you can let me know the Model number I can direct you to the exact belt and give you instructions on how to change it.

My brush is no longer working on my bissell healthy home vac. when i try to turn it on it makes a high pitched squealing sound. I'm pretty sure it needs a new belt but my husband is having trouble getting...


Hi,
According to Bissel, they should be standard phillips screws. Nowever - things change.
This is a general guide from Bissel for belt change -
BELT CHANGE _ CLICK HERE

Check your model number on that site for exact details.

If the screws are Torx (star) or other security screws, tool bits are available from Screwfix -
SECURITY SCREW BITS
That fit standard loose-bit screwdrivers.

Hope that solves your problem.
Thank you.

My enviro vac is being stubborn


First , spin the brush roll by hand and see if it spins freely. Then remove it.
CLEAN OUT ANY HAIR OR THREAD UNDER THE CAPS Inspect the end caps , if one is melted you will need to replace the cap if available or the entire brush roll assembly.
The "metal piece" is the motor shaft. Clean any burned rubber of with fine wet dry sand paper, then install a fresh belt, using the brush for leverage to stretch the belt into place. Rotate the brush again to be sure it is not binding and that the belt is not pinched anywhere.
Buy 2 belts and keep your spare inside the hood of the vac.

I have the yellow altima vac. for a while now I can not get the darn thing to pick up properly. Or should i say keep it up.. The vac does seem to be getting everything picked up but as soon as you turn it...


If it smells hot, then there's a strain on the motor no doubt about it. Check the suction channel behind the sole plate and remove all of the hoses to check for a clog. It could well be that there is a clog inside the machine after the dust channel from the beater bar and before the main hose assembly goes into the bin. Usually a wire brush or just a blunt stick can remove clogs but please be gentle. 
Belt replacement on the Altimas occur on top of the hood, look for crosshead screws on the left hand side and then possibly on the other side where the pedal release is. Also there may be two crosshead screws on the front where the top of the beater bar housing is on either side.

Need to replace belt on Eureka Powerline 12.0 vac. Screws look like Torx head or something on bottom of vac. Are those the screws that need to come out for changing? If so, what size do I need?


No, do not remove the torx head screws for a belt change. If there are any screws that need to be removed for the belt change, they will be phillips head. What is model # of vac??
