Having problems with your Electrolux C101 Bagged Canister Vacuum ?

How do you replace the belt in an Electrolux model 1521


Answers :

I guess you are talking about the belt in the Power Nozzle, right?
(for the vacuum cleaner itself, has not belts in it...)

So-- if we are talking about the power nozzle:
Lay the floor part of this nozzle on a bench or table (with newspapers underneath!!)

Usually there are 2 or 4 large head screws on that smooth metal floor plate--
Remove them, and this cover plate usually pivots forward, exposing the brush, the drive motor and the belt-
Notice the height adjusting settings, for how far the brush goes into the carpet-- and determine if you want to use that same setting,-- or if the brush is worn, you may want to adjust the brush 'out' more, so that the bristles get into the carpet more?

Can you remove the brush?-- removing the end farthest from the belt, first?
This allows the old belt to come off, Now slip the new one on-- notice the notches-- make sure the spacing of the notches in the belt matches the notches in the pulleys.--
Now can you insert the brush back in the bearing slots-- Belt end first?-- Dercide whether to use the same depth, or a deeper brush depth, and nestle everything back in to the retainers. Does the brush turn easily? -- a few drops of oil on the bearings won't hurt.. Be sure to clean all the strings and threads and hair that gets wound around the brush, while you have it all in the open.

You can test the installation when you are safely away from the moving parts-- does it turn freely now?
Replace the cover plate, and tighten the screws-- remembering that they just need to be snug.

Let us know how this turns out-- and if we can help more.

Hello. I have an electrolux glider upright bagless vacuum cleaner (UK model) who's brushes do not rotate any more. I'm guessing that I need to replace the drive belt but I have no idea where to start. I would appreciate any tips. thanks


Hello! There are two solutions to this as the Glider model you speak of could be the more old fashioned type where screws on the bottom foot plate (ie where the spinning brush sits) have to be undone in order to get to the drive belt.\015\012 ... Electrolux Vacuums

I'm using (or WAS using) a Eureka ''the boss'' model 8803. The belt broke, no biggie, so I replaced it with a Eureka model U belt, the problem is when I put the new belt on and turn on the vaccuum, the belt breaks again. I am also having trouble getting the brush roller to fit right when the belt is in place. I can't find any sharp edges that would cut the belt,nor can I find where any small bits may have broken. Anyone have a solution for me?


First, make sure you have the right belt, second, i am thinking that you are not lineing the roller up right, it will only fit one way. look at the ends of the roller and the grooves where it slides in, you should be able to see clearly how it goes. ... Vacuums

I have an old Hoover vacuum model # U5035-930. The belt broke and I tried replacing the belt myself. I couldn't stretch the belt to attach it to the motor pully. It was belt # 38525-027 M6. Which I got from the previous owner. I took it to a vacuum repair place and he replaced it with belt # 38528-027 J4. I cannot find this belt anywhere.

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

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?

The Panasonic MC-V7515 has two belts. The local vacuum repair guy says he only has a part number for the drive belt, which is UB-9. How do I find a replacement for the other belt, the one which directly drives the beater bars? By the way, this vacuum has great suction, but otherwise is far inferior to my previous Panasonic vacuums. The cheaper models aren't a good buy--stick with the more expensive models.
