Did the belt break? ... Vacuums
My Bissell Model 3760-4 is not working properly. The belt has been replaced (and checked 3 times), but the brush bar does not move when the brush motor button is on. The little metal turning piece that turns the belt is turnable with one's finger when the belt is off, but when we put it all back together and turn on the vacuum, the brush bar does not go around and the burning belt smell returns. The portable part of the machine works properly. It's the brush bar. It has been cleared of hair, etc

Replaces the belt on dirt devil dynamite pluse model put everything back together started it and it burt the new belt up that fast. I put it around the beater brush and the metal bar I thought it should go around, yet it seemed like there should be something else there to put the belt on. What do you suggest? Do you have picture I could go by?
The metal bar you put it around if the bar itself does not spin it is going to burn the belt up. Every thing that the belt is supposed to go around has to turn or the belt will rub on the piece not moving and brake. ... Vacuums

Hoover windtunnel t series belt is loose- roller brush doesnt turn. Its brand new belt is slipping. we bough new belts and putthem on same problem. Can not find solutio in manual. Is the belt supposed to go around the "metal pulley". I know it goes around the little metal motor thing, then thru the guide and around the brush. What is the metal pulley??? Is is the larger round silver thing between the guide and roller?

Hi, I have a cleanview bagless model# 3576-2 and my belt keeps breaking (it seems like one of the rings it should wrap around is missing) right now I have been wrapping it around the brush and a metal rod. Also, the dirt collected is going directly into the hose and not the bagless filter. What is going on?

I have a Bissell Powersteamer Pro Deluxe, Model 8804 shampooer. I got this bright idea to take the brush off as it was full of hair and debree. Upon putting it back on it appears I'm not getting the brush on properly. Does the belt go around the end with the grooves? Also do the grooves go on the right or left side? From my view point I am looking at the machine with it lying on it's back and I am sitting on the floor looking at the bottom of machine. Sure hope I haven't confused you too m

No suction Just received my refurb. dyson animal bagless. Finally figured out how to get it all together, turned it on and there is no suction coming up thru the beater bar. The hair is just collecting around the bar and not going up into the canister. It appears all the suction is going thru the open red end of the attachment hose, which has a vented cover piece. Am I missing a piece or is there a switch to turn of the attachment suction?
So the red hose isn't connected to a part on the vaccum so like it is connected to the connester but not to an opening just above the beater bar, this is the only idea i can supply you with. good luck, maybe i got lucky and helped you out. ... Dyson DC17 Animal Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum
Hi There I have got a Kirby 2 HG vaccum cleaner which is around 20 years old now. It was going really well until last week when one of the capacitors which are connected to the brushes blew up. There is two capacitors one for each brush. One of them completely blew to bits and the other one is still intact. My question is are they the same size and where do I get a new one from. I know it is an old machine, but I would like to fix it and get it going again. Any tips???

Last night as I was vacuuming, I noticed that the belt stop indicator light was on. I pulled out the hair that had gotten tangled around the brush in hopes of solving the problem. It didn't change things. I then unscrewed the entire bottom piece to take out the brush roller. I removed hair from the end piece of the brush roller and reattached the belt; however, I cannot figure out where the microchip is supposed to go so that I can reassemble the base piece by screwing it back together. It seems
Not sure what you mean when you refer to a "microchip" but maybe it is a sensor that works with the belt.\015\012Anyway, if you Google the make and model number of your vacuum you can probably get an exploded view or owners manual that might indicate ... Vacuums

Hoover Bagless Hello, My Hoover bag less (Model U5280-900) is not picking up dirt like it should. The brush roll is spinning fine, but the bristles on it are only about one quarter inch long. I am wondering how long they should be. The vacuum is quite a few years old. Do you think it is time to replace the brush roll. Could you email me at [email protected] about this topic. The product bar below did not contain my model no. The correct model no. is above in my message. Thanks
If the belt is more than six months old then change it even if it is not broken. then replace your filters if that doesnt work than check the hoses for a clog drop a marble down them and make sure it comes out. ... Hoover U5753-900 WindTunnel Bagless Upright Vacuum

Most Vacuums has the belt in the middle of the rotating brush. This one has it on the left side and doesn't go around the brush. Mindboggling !
The belt runs from the metal motor pulley straight to the brush roll. To change the belt you remove the bottom plate, pull the roller straight up, then you put the belt on the metal pulley and then on the roller and you push it back into place. ... Sharp Twin Energy EC-TU4606 Bagged Upright Vacuum
It sounds as though a belt is rubbing or slightly off-track. The sound is extremely loud. We've removed the plate around the brush bar, made sure the brushes are free of dog hair, and found that the belt appears to be on track. What should we try now? We haven't tried to use it to check for suction for fear of doing real damage! Thank you. Marcia VanDyne
Is the sound coming from the head unit where the belt is attached? When you power up the vac, can you watch the belt to see if it is frayed or running off track.
