Question about Dirt Devil M088905 Vision Bagless Upright Vacuum

1 Answer

Belts breaking/melting The original belt broke at almost 1 year so I replaced it. I changed the carpet setting to shag even though my carpet is very low pile to make it easier on the vacuum. I didn't get to use it but just a couple minutes and could already start smelling the new belt getting hot. I checked the roller and it is easy to spin. Not clogged with hair or dirt. Now the inside of the new belt has small pieces of rolled rubber instead of being smooth. The metal shaft that goes into the motor has changed to blue in color. Is this from the belt or is the motor going out. The vacuum is not even a year old and only been used for normal house use.

The shaft turning bluer tells me the belt has been slipping a lot. You may have ruined it the first belt working too hard.

SOURCE: Vacuum Belt keep breaking

When your first belt burnt, the burnt plastics goes into the roller ends and then it dries off causing your roller to not turn or put more pressure on your belt. Until you clean that you will continue burning your belts soon after you put them in. You need to add a little bit of WD40 or any other type of lubricant after you remove the tar from the roller.
