How to replace eureka model 4388 belt


Hi, it's Allie from Crucial Vacuum!

Changing the belts in your unit is easier than you think. To do so, you will need a phillips head screwdriver. First, start by unplugging your vacuum as a safety measurement. Using the lever in the bottom of your unit, recline your upright until it lays flat. Unscrew all 4 screws from the floor base cover and remove the cover to expose the roller brush and belts of your unit.

Carefully, remove the roller brush by using your hands, make sure to hold on to the side of the roller brush that has the belt so it does not pop out and hit you. Once the roller brush is removed, gently take the belt off the metal spool, and replace with the new belt.

We have a very helpful tutorial in our webpage that can assist you in replacing the belts on your unit:

Change the belt


Hi There,

Here's how you can replace the belt on your Eureka SmartVac 4870. I have taken pictures of the repair to help you better with this.

Here's what you'll need in order to complete this repair:

- Eureka Style R Extended Life Replacement Belt, Part 61110
- Eureka SmartVac Model 4870 Roller Brush Assembly, Part 61520 (Only if the brush no longer spins, or the brushes are worn out)
- Phillips head screw driver

Step 1. Turn the vacuum upside down so that the brush roller is facing upwards. Unscrew the three screws that I've highlighted in red.

56134d4.jpg


Step 2. Remove the bottom plate after unscrew the three red highlighted screws. Once you remove the bottom plate, you'll have full access to the roller brush and belt area. Remove the roller brush by pulling straight up on the roller brush itself. Discard old belt, and test roller brush to ensure that it spins freely by holding the very end of each side, also called the bearing caps with just your finger tips. Try spinning the brush with your thumbs. The brush should spin several times around with each spin. If you notice the brush doesn't spin at all, or if you feel some resistance when you spin the brush, this means that your bearings are either gone, or will be soon. It may be time to consider a new roller brush at this time.

Step 3. Remove the new Eureka Style R belt from the packaging, and wrap one end around the the metal pin, on the opposite side of the roller brush. This pin is actually the motor shaft that spins the belt, which spins the brush.

Step 4. Wrap the other end of the belt through the side of the roller brush that has the pulley, and use the roller brush to stretch the brush roll back into the agitator housing. Make sure the end caps fit in the housing correctly by making sure there are no gaps between the roller brush housing and the end caps of the roller brush.

Step 5. After reinstalling the roller brush back into the housing with the belt attached, pull the belt forwards towards the brush. The brush should spin when you do this. Make sure that the belt is not pinched underneath of the roller brush or this will cause the belt to break immediately when you turn the vacuum back on.

Step 6. Reinstall the bottom plate, making sure that the little notches on the front end of the bottom plate tucked underneath of the reverse notches on the bottom housing of the vacuum cleaner. Tighten all 3 screws back into the bottom plate. Make sure the vacuum is set to carpet mode, and turn the vacuum on.

If you have any questions about this repair, or if you notice that the roller brush stops when the brushes hit the carpeting, please just use the clarification request form here on the Fixya repair page. I will then be happy to walk you through a little more advanced repair of replacing the clutch in the Eureka SmartVac that controls the rug/floor switch. Most of the time though the belt will be all the vacuum needs.

I hope that this was helpful information to you. If this helped you, please be so kind and rate the repair as helpful by clicking on the thumbs up icons in the top corner of this repair.

Thank you very much,

New brushroll for eureka smartvac 4870; bristles too long to turn


HI Don't forget that you have a height adjustment control so its better to put it in the highest position - if this is not allowing the roller brush to move properly on the carpet then switch the vacuum off, and lightly trim with scissors on the brush lines. Avoid cutting everything down though - a slight trim should improve things. Generally though when brushes appear too long its usually because the height adjustment dial hasn't been set upwards.

Location of belt


There are two Phillips head screws on the cover over the power head. This is the cover that fits around the carpet height adjustment knob. You will notice there are four oval shaped holes on each side of the cover and the crews are in the ones closest to the vacuum handle. The screws are black and may be dust covered and therefore hard to see, but this is all that holds the cover on. When you take these out the cover will lift easily off. Once you do this the motor, belt, and brush assembly are accessible. I purchased a bag of two belts at the local ACE hardware. I recommend cleaning the brush while it is out. Also be sure the bearings on each end of the brush assembly turn freely as hair can work into these and cause them to bind. I hope this helps. [email protected]
