I need to replace the agitator belt on a Hoover Elite U4465-9 upright vacuum cleaner. I have removed the bottom cover, but there is no access to the motor spindle to loop the belt around. How do I do this?
I have a Panasonic MCV7515 UPRIGHT VACUUM and need to remove the cowling that covers the brushes to clean the hair out of the bearings, but it isn't clear how that can be done without a crowbar or sledgehammer. Removing all the visible screws makes the hindmost part loose, but not the front half. Also, is there an easy way to replace the belt?

Dyson dc07 The rotating brush on the bottom of my vacuum was filled with strings. I removed the brush by undoing all yellow plastic screws from plate. Removed all strings and replaced as best I could and it was hard to get the brush back in and the belt around it. I dont have my manual but it fits so it should be correct....? Right? No, not true, because when I turn it on and try to and vacuum (by lower canister with foot release) it makes that terrible ratching sound). Please help

I have a Sears Upright vacuum cleaner, model 116.35922500. The vacuum wasn't picking up. I discovered a clog in the nozzle hose. I attempted to remove the cover of the brush unit to clear the clog. I was unable to remove the cover completely, but was able to clear the clog. My problem now is that I cannot replace the cover correctly. Is there a way to remove this cover? Thanks, Elizabeth

My older Dyson DC14 (the purple one) early model with a clutch on the beater bar belt needs a clutch replacement. The bar has been cleaned and there are no worn or damaged parts so I conclude that the clutch at the motor end of the belt needs to be replaced. I can find the part online but no instructions on how to disassemble the vacuum to get to and replace it. Dysons only advice is to give me the address and phone of the nearest service center. Can you help me?

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.

I have a Kirby G5 and need to replace the gear drive shaft, as the lever inside fell off and the shaft came out. (Common problem by the sound of it.) How do i remove the actual gearbox itself. I have removed the 3 screws on the bottom, but it's not coming out. What's stopping it from coming out? Do i need to remove the gearbox drive belt first? If so, how do i get to it? Thanks in advance.

I have vax 1800 pet vacuum. It is picking up fine but very noisy. I have replaced the belt in the past and the noise started then. On looking at it closely today I noticed brushbar was getting worn where it slots in at the side so I suspect it wasn't fitted in properly after replacing the belt. Now in properly but still making terrible noise. There is a bit of a rubbing noise when brushbar moved round. Do you think the brushbar needs replaced? How do I lubricate the bearings to try that bef
