Having problems with your Vacuums ?

How do I open the vacuum to change the belt - Vacuums


Answers :

Most vacuum belts are located at the bottom where the intake is ...less specific where all the dirt gets sucked up into the machine... if you turn the vacuum upside down you should see some screws that hold the bottom plate to the vacuum ... remove them and this piece will come off ... Most vacuums have one belt that runs from the brush to the back where the belt goes around a wheel that is turned by the motor... like I said most vacuums are like this .. .you will want to check out the manual on yours to make sure that this is correct also the manual will have the part number for the replacement belt..... If you still cant figure it out look in the yellow pages and give the local repair company a call most will answer the simple questions over the phone as to where you need to look for the belt drive and what kind of belt you will need to use to replace the worn out one ... hope this helps

I accidently ran over a sock while vacuuming underneath my bed and the belt broke (brush does not rotate now). I've always changed the belts in my vacuum cleaners, but the Healthy Home manual states that I need to bring it into a shop so that a professional repairman can change it. I find this ridiculous and now wish that I never bought it. How do I change the belt myself? PS I have already bought a replacement belt.

My Vacuum DC-17 has just quit sucking. It has been making quite a racket since I had the belt changed at a repair shop several months ago. I was told that the belt was a new design and figured that was why it was making so much noise. it seemed to work fine, was picking up dirt and all, but today, when I started vacumming, I noticed it was not sucking air either with the belt engaged or not. My vacuum is approx. 5 years old.
