Having problems with your Vacuums ?

No manual - how to replace belt?

\015 Hi, I bought the (appropriate) replacement belt for a DirtFINDER (not self-propelled) but don't know how to put it on correctly as a) the belt was broken when I removed the cover plate, b) I've never in my life looked at the 'inside' of a vacuum cleaner, and c) the machine is a couple of years old and the manual is long lost. \015\012 Thanks for any help!\015

I have the Kenmore 34723 Grab-N-Go Upright Vacuum. It has two screws on the superior surface of the flat part of the bottom section. They say something like Quick Belt Check Lock/Unlock. When you turn both of the screws using a flathead screwdriver to the unlock position the screws become a bit loose but nothing happens. I flipped it upside down trying to figure out how to remove the bottom spent a half hour doing that and then an hour on the net trying to find a manual or explanation. When I went away a couple of hours and then came back I realized that I was making it too hard. the screws were present on the top part of the piece because it was the top part that will pop off. Basically I used my fingernail to pry the blue fiberglass piece away from the black plastic piece on the front, and Walaa! The blue fiberglass popped off. At that point you are able to see that the belt wraps around the brush and passes backwards to hook onto a metal rod that sticks out on the right. Mine had actually just slipped off and so I reset it. You need to slide the brush up out of the groove it is in in order to do this. When you put it back into the groove make sure it is the same way you got it out.
\015\012Then just press the blue fiberglass back on and tighten the screws. I think after figuring out how to take the top off the hardest part of the procedure is figuring out how to put the screws back the way they were. Note the screws don't come out all the way, just partially, so don't force it. The problem arises because the screws only go in one way and will spin around and not catch if you do it wrong.
Well you didn't give brand or model number, but the belt goes around the one end of the brush roll and the other stretches to go over the motor shaft or pulley. Make sure that both ends of the brush roll turn freely, if not, then replace it also.

I have a Hoover Windtunnel U5472-940. The belt broke so I replaced it. Immediately the next one broke. The belt goes around the brush cylinder and a metal post.

Hi my proheat bissell 7901 stopped pumping water to the floor, but it pumps water from the hand hose.

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 machine (Hoover Wind Tunnel - bagless) is only 1 yr. old. The agitator brush doesn't turn all the time. I know it's not supposed to turn when in the upright position. However, it only seems to work when I have the setting on high. When I stop, but have not put the machine in the upright position, it stops again and then slowly starts moving. Could the V-belt be worn out already? In the owner's manual it states that this belt is not normally replaced. The exact same thing happened with my old
