Trying to change belt - Vacuums

Answers :

The procedure for changing a belt will vary depending on the type of vacuum you have. However, I can give you some general guidelines. Unplug the vacuum and turn it over. Generally there will be some type of cover you need to remove to expose the beater bar. This cover can sometimes be removed by taking out screws and sometimes there are plastic tabs you need to push in with a screwdriver to loosen it. Once this cover is removed you will probably see the broken belt. You need to buy a replacement belt of the same size. You can probably look up your vacuum online to find out what size you need. You can also take the old belt to the store and match it up with the available new belts. Once you have a new belt you need to remove the beater bar. The ends of the beater bar will probably fit into some type of indentations or slots. Pull on the beater bar and it should slide out. Place the new belt around the beater bar. Also hook the belt around the metal motor stub located near the rear and to one side of the exposed underside of the vacuum. Now insert the beater bar back into its original slots. This will require pulling hard on the beater bar to stretch the belt forward and away from the metal motor stub. Replace the cover and you’re good to go. I hope this helps you out

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.

For some reason, when I tried to put the floor vacuum attachment back on and vacuum the carpet, I realized that the belt was not engaging. the belt is in there and not broken, but it is not turning the beater brush. it is just hanging loose around the brush. When I turn the wheel to engage the brush, it picks the belt up, but when I attach the vacuum to the attachment, the brush is just not turning.

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.

Belts breaking/melting The original belt broke at almost 1 year so I replaced it. I changed the carpet setting to shag even though my carpet is very low pile to make it easier on the vacuum.
