Getting to the belt

How in the heck does the bottom come off so you can get to the belt? I only see two screws and I unscrewed them and it still isn't coming off. I've looked in the manual and it doesn't even say that it has a belt, but it has to be the problem because I have tried everything else.

There is no belt. if your brushes don't spin it may be your turbine gear assembly. my suggestion (if you only see 2 screws) you better take it to a service center. there are 7 screws holding the hood on.

Hey, getting back to your question. to change the belt you have to take apart the model on the bottom portion and unscrew the five screws on the bottom. once you have done this undo the belt screw if you haven't already, once you do this the belt should come out smoothly. also to be honest the belt should be located by the beater bar at the front bottom portion of the model. please get back to me on this if you meed any help i can help you with this

Shark navigator uv300 roller stops while vacuuming filters are clean and not clogged up

The belt that turns the rotating brush is loose. Make sure it is on correctly or replace with a (new) tighter belt. This will require you to unscrew a few screws on the bottom & remove the cover. Then remove the roller.

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.

How do I change the belt on a Bissell Powerforce model 3522-1?

this is how you do it Lower handle and place vacuum on floor so you can see bottom of power head. Examine the power head to remember what it should look like when finished. Unscrew the four screws (Phillips screwdriver). Lift off cover. Lift out brush. Remove belt from brush and motor shaft. Place new belt around motor shaft, then around brush just prior to reinserting brush. Make sure the belt is placed correctly. Reinsert brush in slots. Rotate manually toward motor a few time to center the belt. Replace cover and screws. Tighten securely. Check cover to make sure it's properly secured.

Hoover U5163-900

Just discovered this same problem and the belt was a mess when we pulled it out. Now have to try to find a replacement and see if we can get it back on. To find it though just remove the 4 screws that hold the red cover on 2 on the bottom and then two on the top. You will then see two screws near the front holding the black casing for the roller. Just unscrew those and the belt will be hiding under there. Good luck.

Belt is burning?

is the brush turning?  remove any debris that is keeping it from rotating.  It does sound like the belt is burning because the motor is trying to turn it and the brush/sweeper is jammed.
