Having problems with your Eureka 431A Optima Bagless Upright Vacuum ?

Why does the belt keep breaking as soon as I turn on the vacuum?


Answers :

Hi\015\012Have you got the correct belt? If its breaking then the brush end caps or something is clogged. If you can get into the floor head ensure you look at the actual brush roll to see if there is anything is clogged or trapped. Remove all matter of dust and see if that works.
If your brush roller is froze up then the belt will keep breaking before you put a new belt on make sure you clean the motor shaft rubber from an old belt might still be on the shaft which will cause the new belt to run unevenly and break .your brush roller might not be turning freely try to pull the ends off the roller and clean the hair and carpet strands out of it

Hoover WindTunnel S3765. The motor spins and the belt turns when I turn the brushes on, and the brushes will spin. The problem is that when I do this on carpet, the brushes stop spinning.

Replacement parts... I've got a 3594 Bissell and the belt has come completely off. In the process of breaking, it bent the metal guide inside the motor housing and melted the plastic that holds the guide and keeps the belt inline with the roller. I've got it running again by using a screw I filed all the threads off of, but it only works for 10 minutes at a time before breaking another belt. This process is getting expensive, as it usually takes 30 minutes to completely vacuum the house. Is ther
