Having problems with your Vacuums ?
Possible broken belt - where do I find access to the belt. The beater bar does not rotate when i release the handle.
I like this machine, but It is only 2 years old, the warranty has expired. And i must say, I am disappointed
I am concerned that this article will end up in the landfill, adding one more problem for the environment.
As you do not say which type of vac ? but assume definately upright hoover/dyson or similar ? the actual belt is not difficult to renew on either model/s at this stage can only suggest you turn vac over to reveal the cover that houses the rollerbrush the drivebelt will be located on one end of the rollerbrush but concealed by cover now? look at this cver to see how it is secured ie screws or even plastic twist 45 degree turn lock pins with slotted heads?? remove cover and you will be able to see how belt renewal is done the rollerbrush can be lifted out of its slot in position for cleaning and facilitate belt renewal hope this assists you to diy best wishes

I have a Bissell 3920 and the beater bar only turns when I'm pulling the vacuum.How do you get the end caps off of the beater bar to clean it out? This has happened before when it was under warranty and I was told to remove caps and clean frequently.I am afraid prying them off will break the vacuum.It also has very low suction and I have cleaned the filters and the belt is fine.Will cleaning the inside of the beater bar fix my problem?

My 4870 K Boss is 2 years old. I have replaced belts & filters in the specified intervals. This last time I replaced the belt after a year, it shredded 3 of them on the outside edge of the belt in about 5 minutes of use. I ordered a new brush roller & heavy duty belt which I installed. It began shredding the belt in less than 5 minutes of use. What is your suggestion? Is this a known problem with this model? Eureka says no and is not standing behind it.
The only reason why it would be shredding the belt is if the pulleys were not lined up correctly. Check the allignement of the belt to make sure there is nothing kepping the pulleys from being in line. The other thing that it could be is if the rolle ... Vacuums

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
My bissell 6590 works fine with hose attachment. Motor shaft turns when belt and roller are off. When belt and roller are on it's noisy and smelly. Now one end of the roller actually melted in the holding slot. Do these rollers wear out like this or should I be looking for another problem.
Replace the roller,belt and before instalation clean motor shaft where belt rolls. you can turn on the vacumm and using a knife scrape the motor shaft from the black dirt. ... Bissell 6590 CleanView Bagless Upright Vacuum
I replaced the belt on my Dirt Devil Featherlite Bagless Vacuum and the brush roller rubs and makes a very loud noise when turned on. I have gone exactly by the manual instructions and made sure the belt and end caps were on correctly, but the bristles still rub the back and it makes a very loud noise. Without the brush roller in the vacuum, it sounds and runs normal. What could the problem be?

On several occasions the belt has come off the Hoover Windtunnel beater shaft and had to be re-installed. Is there any way to prevent it from slipping off? The shaft seems to be made so that the middle if it is wider(thicker than either the end or the part closer to the motor, which, to me, is a bad design so I don't know how to overcome this problem. I'd be very grateful for a permanent solution to this problem. Thanks in Advance, mas

I have the Eureka 4870 "The Boss" Smart Vac. The beater bar began to turn constantly and can't be shut by moving the Brush Roll Contol to Bare Floor position or the machine to the upright postion. It has also eaten two new belts. A local tech says he has seen this problem whereby the free-wheel assembly that makes contact with the belt to engage the beater bar is misalgned and cannot disengage. It is usually the chassis which would mean replacement of enough parts that would not be worthwhile

Bissell 6595 problems with roller brush. I've had this happen with two of the same model. Each one didn't last more than seven months! First, it became loud when vacuuming, then there was a burning smell. When you try to replace the belt, you see that won't do any good because the fitted end of the brush is melted. The housing part the roller brush fits into is melted too. There's no place for the roller brush to fit into. I tried to upload pics, because I don't see how replacing the roller brus

Really love this vacuum! Don't want to have to part with it!
If you are able to remove one end cap, the brush roller shaft can be removed and the other bearing is exposed for examination and removal of the hair that probably is clogging it. After cleaning and reassembly the brush roller should rotate freely. C ... Eureka 2961AVZ Bagless Upright Vacuum

I have an old Progressive vacuum cleaner that says "Hepa Filter" and "Whisper Belt". Not sure what the model # is.

We are trying to replace the belt on the bissell 89q9 model. We purchased belt 8 and got in onto the brush however the brush doesn't spin anymore. Even trying to turn it by hand doesn't work.

Also, my son has been having the same problem with his. He has the same model and same belt. This problem is occurring even after a thourough cleaning.

The belt on my used Eureka Boss 5857 upright slips off the end of the motor shaft every time the vacuum is used. When I turn the brush roll slowly by hand, the belt walks toward the end of the shaft. It looks like there was a plastic projection from the base that snapped off, and maybe that plastic piece used to block the belt from falling off. Do I need to try to reconstruct that plastic piece, or is something else wrong?
