I need instruction on how to replace the drive belt.


first unplug the device...depending on the model you have there are two screws that hold the cover onto the unit. sometimes they are hidden behind the rubber wall guard and sometimes they are hidden in the random designs on top or even the bottom of the unit. you unscrew the screws (usually 2) and remove the plate. you should be able to see the drive belt now, remove and replace with the new one. (it would be a good idea to clean hair etc out while you are in there :) ) make sure it turns freely and replace the cover, screw it in. vacuum to your hearts content

Replace belt on fantom cyclone vacuum? the manual does not decribe replacing the roller belt - i can't get it open to expose the belt


On my 10-year-old model, the two screws securing the cover are under the two llight bulbs. Pry off the clear plastic covers, take out the bulbs and screws, and the cover lifts off.

Have electrolux upright hoover that only picks up when using the hose but have no idea how to get to the belt to replace it - help - jackie


I was not aware that hoover and electrolux merged if so you will probably need a phillips screwdriver turn the unit so you can see the roller remove all the screws that hold the cover to the base than take off the cover plate and check the belt if it needs replaced remove the old belt take off the roller by sliding it out of the slots put the belt on the shaft that is conected to the motor first than over the end of the roller where the belt should ride than you will need to pull the roller towards the front of the unit untill it slides into the slots on the side of the base put the side that dosent have the belt in first than replace the roller cover plate and the screws and you are ready to vacuum, Don the Vacuum Doctor Alb, N.M.

Shark v1510 How do I replace the belt?


remove the outside sliding cover... remove 2 screw in from of housing, and also the screw holding the wheel on the brush head cap side of the housing. Once screws are rmoved, you can remove brush head cap and belt cover. Pull down on belt cover to remove. It is held by screw crossing the top of the cover from the side. Belts are hard to find, but can be ordered from shark web site (2) for 7.95 and shipping.

I had the same problem. Some one should stock these belts in the states, because Shark outsources thier call center to India, which sucks. It took 20 minutes on the phone to communicate through the noise and language barrier just to order a belt!

Change belt on a hoover tempo


Remove the cover that covers the roller brush, (four screws) and remove
the roller brush and replace belt, it goes between the motor shaft and the roller brush. Replace the cover and that should do it.

I want to replace the belt on an upright eureka vacuum model 4481, any ideas?


I just replaced the belt on my 4481. Very simple. Be sure unit is unplugged. Unlock handle and let it lay down. Remove two screws on plastic cover. I purchased my belt at target for 2.54. Part number anywhere is Eureka U. Remove the roller brush. Loop belt around drive motor first and then around roller brush inserting the roller back into place belt side first. Replace cover and your ready to go. 10 min fix.

Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. Usually there are screws, clips or levers on the bottom of the vacuum and you need to either remove the bottom plate and once you have taken the screws, etc. out the top cover will come off. And then you can proceed with the removal and the install of the new belt. 1st you need to remove @ least one end of the Hoover brushroll and take of the old belt and slide on a new belt. Once the belt is on the pulley side of the brushroll; then re-install the brushroll. Make sure that the brush is spinning freely B4 you install the new belt, then take a belt puller or a screwdriver with a left or right hand hook to use as a belt puller and then stretch the belt onto the motor pulley, then take and roll the belt until it is tracking straight and then re-install the top cover and or the bottom plate, tighten down the screws, levers or clips. So, please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or in the yellow pages, or contact the factory phone number or website to further assist you with your questions.

Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure.
There are 2 different models of the boss by Eureka – there is a standard old style upright that the belt that the belt would unscrew from the bottom of the motor and you would have to remove the top of the vacuum cover to remove the main motor and gasket assm, and then the fan has a reverse thread on the plastic fan and you would unscrew the fan after removing the belt pulley. Then you would screw on the new fan, belt pulley, replace the gasket and re-install the motor. If you have a new style with a side mount motor you would remove the top cover, the motor would be in there sideways, un-screw the motor, remove the silver tape around the fan housing and un-screw the fan housing – same as above un-screw the fan from the motor, there is a nut on the end of the fan holding that on – (remember, the fan has a reverse thread) re-install the fan. Then the fan housing, replace the silver tape, and then screw down the motor and replace the top cover, then you can test. As always free to contact your local vacuum dealer in your area in the yellow pages or contact your Eureka factory manufacturer listed below:
