Question about Shark Navigator Bagless Upright Vacuum

Open Question

The beater brush is not spinning and I have removed 6 screws (including two on the wheels) and I cannot open the "case" to look at the belt drive. How do I separate the upper and lower beater brush enclosure to repair or at least view the problem.

Model U90-MA-R. How do I replace broken belt?


Remove the bottom cover that is over the beater brush by removing 6 or 7 screws. That will expose the beater brush which will most likely be held on by two screws and a bracket. Remove the beater and loop the belt around the grooved side and around the drive pin. Put back together and done.

Riccar rad.4 belt install


Turn the unit upside down so you can see the beater brush. Remove the panel that is covering the beater brush. Should be about 4 to 6 screws. Once that is removed you will see where the belt goes and simply replace it. The drive wheel will pull out so you can get the belt around it and then replace it.

How do I change the belt?


To change the belt on a Hoover Flair Stick Vacuum, remove all 6 screws from the bottom of the beater bar. There are 2 screws hidden under wheels. You must pop the wheels off with a screw driver to remove the hidden screws. The cogged belt is on the left side of the beater bar. Be careful not to pull the wires.

A burning smell when in use


Martinsivyer:

Turn the machine upside-down and see if you can turn the beater/brush bar with your hand. You should see the brush turning and feel the resistance from the motor. The brush/beater bar may be binding, and what you are smelling is the motor shaft spinning against the rubber belt. You can remove the base plate and check the brush/beater bar with the belt disconnected. If the brush/beater bar is difficult to turn, you need to remove the brush/beater bar and clean the bearings at each end, Remove any threads that are wound around the beater bar ends so that the bearings roll easily and smoothly. Check to see that your machine is not set too low for the surface that you are bacuuming. While you have the belt disconnected, check thi inside surface to see if the motor shaft has been spinning against the belt, you'll see the damage to the inside circumfrence of the belt.

Belt is broken. Not sure how to replace


1. Get a long screw driver (probably phillips head) a strip of tape.
2. Look around underneath your vac for screws... look carefully because sometimes they are sneaky and hidden in weird areas like under the wheels, etc.
3. Take screws out stick them in order on tape turned upwards. (remember how you took them out.)
4. Gently remove the bottom cover.
5. Clean and remove debris, hair, dust bunnies, rocks... whatever.
6. Determine where the belt goes, disengage the beater bar on that side (may need to unscrew something) Belt on beater bar gears. Other end of belt on motor end... then stretch belt with beater bar until it fits back in it's place and replace any screws, etc.
7. Make sure the belt is seated properly.
8. replace cover, screws... test.**

** sometimes belts require that you put a twist in them so it can transition from the motor's direction to the beater bar's direction... if you twist the wrong way... the beater bar will spit dirt out the front of the vac.. (it's bulldozing it) In that case remove cover and twist the belt the other way.

Good luck.

I have a bissell 7901-1 carpet cleaner and the gear the runs the beater bar is loose how does it connect to the pump thanks


turn your unit over so you are looking at the bottom (side towards floor) on either side of the brush are a phillip's screw- one side will show a larger red piece- take that phillips screw out, it will show you the pump you can take the belt access cover off and see the one belt, the belt to the beater brush is gear like- take the belt that connects to the brush and loop it over the gear on the pump- then put the brush belt over the brush and seat it back into the protector- I would suggest you hand spin the brush to ensure both belts and the pump are turning otherwise You may do like I did and burn the other belt- I replaced both belts just because it made sense- reseat the red piece you removed then replace and tighten the screw-

Beater does not work.


Not knowing what type of vacuum you have does not make it easy. However, usually caused by a broken belt or the fact that the beater brush is bound up by debris either being on the beater or having accumulated at the ends of the beater where the brush is supposed to spin on the end plates. After checking the belt I would remove the beater brush, clean it very good and put some WD40 on the ends of the axle of the beater brush and make sure it spins freely on the holding plates.

Twirly thing under the vacuum has stopped spinning


there is a belt that drives the beater brush. flip the unit over, you can remove the bottom cover by removing a couple of screws. to one side of the brush you will see a channel where the belt should be. go to you local walmart, sears or hardware store and in the vaccume section they will have belts, on each bag of belts will be a list of vaccumes that belt fits simply find yours. with the new belt simply lift the beater brush out at the belt channel side and install the belt around motor shaft and brush. then place brush back in place , be suer brush guides are in properly. this should do ya.

The brush isn't spinning


the belt is broke. you can buy a new one for around 5-10 dollars at target or walmart, or loews or homedepot.take the screws of the bottom panel to expose belt. you will have to pull out the beater bar to replace the belt. just pull on it after the bottom plate is removed the beater bar just slides out. slide the new belt down the beater bar then pull the belt over the spinning pin. now stretch the beater back to its original position it should slide right in. replace the bottom plate and your back in business

How to change belt on this model?


Changing the belt on this nifty little machine only seems difficult until you find all eight of the screws that hold the entire assembly together, and the nice thing is you get to totally ignore the torx style screws altogether.

There are two screws in the bottom of the unit just forward and to either side of the beater brush, remove 'em.

Flip the vacuum over and remove the two screws holding the top in place. One is located under the removable suction hose near the right rear wheel, the other is in plain sight over the left rear wheel.

After you pop the top off you'll see the dark clear plastic housing that covers the beater brush and belt assembly. It is held in place by four more screws, three on the back side of the beater and one on the front side in the center of the machine.

Change your belt, clean your brush and tell your kids to get back to work while you take something out for dinner and open a cold one.
