Make certain the belt is twisted the correct direction and that the brush is free to rotate. If the belt is twisted the wrong way it will probably come off or breake

Put new belt on and the wheels are to high in the front of sweeper


Is this a dirt devil. First and foremost these things ****! secondly the wheels have to be snapped in underneath the piece that covers the belt. even when that is done the wheels will force the vacuum to low and stress the belt so much that it breaks! See my other suggestion on how to remedy this!

How do I replace the belt in my hoover empower


There's a plastic cover over the agitator. (the part that should spin, with tough bristles)
Unscrew it. Pull out the agitator. Put the new belt over the 'spinner' (the part that's connected to the motor) and the special pafrt of the agitator. Snap the agitator back into place, making sure it's secure on both sides.
Screw back on the plastic cover.

Panasonic MC-V7395 Belt overheating/snapping


I have the same problem. I keep thinking I have fixed it, but then another belt breaks. I only have the issue when the roller is disengaged. (on bare floor setting). I did find that the unit was slipping back into engaged slowly, because the disengage mechanizim was not kathing prperly,. Tightened up a screw, and now appears to hold, but somehow the belt still get broken - I beleave it is an issue that the belt is not staying away from the drive when it is disengaged.
