Having problems with your Dirt Devil Vacuums ?

Dirt Devil Featherlite Cyclonic Upright Belt Slipping Off

\015 After replacing the belt twice it still slips off after just a few minutes of use. The belt is the right size and seems to fit right. When the belt is on the brush rotates freely. Does anyone have an idea what the problem is and if there is a possible DIY fix? Thank you!\015

Answers :

The belt loops over the motor shaft and the end of the brush roller. Over time, the brush roller becomes worn and the belt no longer contacts a flat surface so it has a tendency to move out of alignment. Some uprights have a wire guide about midway along the belt path to keep the belt aligned. If inspection reveals the brush roller is worn, the usual repair is to replace the brush roller but you have to decide whether repair is worth the cost
