Having problems with your Vacuums ?

How to for Belt replacement and solution to suction loss

\015 I have a Eureka Contour Bagged Upright vacuum that is a couple of years old. Just recently it lost suction. When using the accessories/attachments, however, this is plenty of suction power. I've changed the bag, filters and cleared the brush of hair, etc. I've also checked for any obstructions and have found none. I'm wondering if the belt needs replacing as the brush makes an unusual pattern on the carpet.\015\012\015\012The vacuum was a gift and I did not receive the manual.\015\012\015\012Thanks\015

\015\012The suction you said is fine with attachments, so the belt is not turning the carpet brush
You say it lost its suction, then you also say this is plenty of suction power, seems you cant figure out the prob. Try cleaning the fan on the suction blower. The blades can get chocked with dust which will give you a reduced suction.

I'm using (or WAS using) a Eureka ''the boss'' model 8803. The belt broke, no biggie, so I replaced it with a Eureka model U belt, the problem is when I put the new belt on and turn on the vaccuum, the belt breaks again. I am also having trouble getting the brush roller to fit right when the belt is in place. I can't find any sharp edges that would cut the belt,nor can I find where any small bits may have broken. Anyone have a solution for me?


First, make sure you have the right belt, second, i am thinking that you are not lineing the roller up right, it will only fit one way. look at the ends of the roller and the grooves where it slides in, you should be able to see clearly how it goes. ... Vacuums

The Panasonic MC-V7515 has two belts. The local vacuum repair guy says he only has a part number for the drive belt, which is UB-9. How do I find a replacement for the other belt, the one which directly drives the beater bars? By the way, this vacuum has great suction, but otherwise is far inferior to my previous Panasonic vacuums. The cheaper models aren't a good buy--stick with the more expensive models.

Hi loss of suction on Dyson DC07 and I have changed the belt on the brushbar and cleaned all filters/removeable parts but still suction not very good, any other suggestions?
