DC07s have two belts - one connects the output of the motor to the clutch, the other connects the clutch to the brush bar.
I suspect the belt you are to refering to is the one from the bar to the brush. Unfortuenately the other belt is hidden under a plastic cover, so you cant see if it is okay or not without some dismantling. This cover is not easy to remove and requires a Torx driver to under the securing screws.
Have a look at www.dysonmedic.com, but unless you have access to such a tool, probably time to call Dyson or a Vacuum repairer.

How do I replace a broken belt on vacuum cleaner - Hoover Modell U5465-900?


The Brush is pressed into a small holder on each side of the vacuum case. You must pull the brush forward (out) from the holders and on the brushes side is a spindle where the rubber belt wraps around. Remove the old belt, clean off all debris and put the one end of the new belt on the spindle end of the vacuum motor and the other on the brush end. Push brush roller back in place and you are good to go.

Brush roller not spinning. belt, spindle okay. roller taken out and cleaned, no thread. replaced but no dice. ???


Use only BISSELL Style 10 Replacement Belts (#32074) in your BISSELL PowerForce Bagless.
  1. Unplug cleaner from electrical outlet.
  2. With Rotating Floor Brush removed from vacuum cleaner, grasp old Drive Belt and remove from Motor Pulley. Discard old Drive Belt.
  3. Place new Drive Belt over Motor Pulley and stretch other end over Rotating Floor Brush in the space between the bristles.
  4. Place ends of Rotating Floor Brush down into slots on sides as shown.
  5. Turn Rotating Floor Brush by hand several times in the direction of Motor Pulley. If properly installed, Drive Belt will center itself on Rotating Brush.
  6. Reposition Brush Cover and snap back into place. Check to be sure all three latches are secured.
  7. When you turn on the vacuum, do you see the motor that spins the belt spinning at the bottom? If not, it sounds like you may have a burned out motor.

Eats belts immediately


HI There,

Usually when the belt breaks immediately, this indicates that your roller brush has gone bad and needs to be replaced. I have never seen the motor shaft being damaged and causing belts to break before. When the roller brush can't spin because it's bearings have worn out, the motor shaft continues to try and turn the belt, but since the belt can't spin the motor shaft at that point burns right through the belt.

To make sure that it's your roller brush, remove the brush from the vacuum cleaner, and hold it using just your two pointer finger tips, holding just the bearings caps at the end of the bar, and not the bar itself.

Try to spin the brush using your thumbs. Does the brush spin freely without resistance? It should spin completely around 3-4 times on each spin. If it doesn't spin, then your bar is bad.

If the brush doesn spin, and it continues to break belts, this means that the belt is being installed incorrectly, and is being pinched by the roller brush. Pull the belt forwards after installing to make sure the brush spins freely.

Hope this helped you,

The brush motor starts and stops during use


Is it the actual motor stopping or the belt that spins the brush that's slipping? if its belt slip, this happens, pretty common on all belt vacs, dirt and dust gets under the belt and causes it to just slip with no actual grip on the brush end. This slipping can also cause to much friction ware and actually changes the inner diameter of the belt so even cleaned it would still (maybe) slip so need a replaced belt.

But I'd take the belt off first and clean it as well as the heads it spins over then try it again. Make sure you unplug from the wall, a vac brush can and will take your fingers clean off.

My machine ran over some string,made a funny noise and emitted some smoke,the hand suction pipe at the rear works perfectly, the motor runs fine,but the front of the vacuum will not work.thankyou very...


the string bound up the beater bar (brush), keeps the belt stationary, and the motor spindle is just rubbing against the belt and melting it. remove the belt guard, remove the brush, and the belt. clean off the brush bearings (at the ends of the brush) of the string and make sure the ends spin freely from the brush. replace the belt with a new one, and put it all back together.

Eureka 5843 belt keeps slipping off of drive spindle.


Tough one. Typically the only 2 things that the belt contacts is the motor drive spindle and the brush roller. Anything else would only be there to protect the belt from debris. Can you turn the brush by hand and see why the belt is coming off? Is the spindle wobbly? If so, you may need another motor as I don't think it is easy to get parts for the motor. Hope this helps and good luck!

Belt keeps snapping


Check your brush. It is likely that the brush is broken and will not spin. Hold the brush by the end caps and spin the brush and if it will not spin freely that is your issue.
