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

I need help changing belt on my Eureka Optima

\015 I's like to know what I'm doing before I start taking screws out and making a big mess!\015

Answers :

If you're not familiar with how the vacuum is put together, taking it apart can be a real pain. Thankfully, most of the screws on the unit are the same size and type. For the ones you need to remove, a #2 Phillips should do the trick.

Unplug the vacuum, and flip it over, flat on the ground.

Press the silver button on the neck where the roller head attaches to the body and pull the head off. This isn't completely necessary but it makes it easier to work on.

Remove the 12 screws holding the case together. There will be 2 smaller (I think) screws by where the head swivels. Keep track of those.

Once ALL the screws are removed, the case should be loose and pretty easy to remove.

Flip it back over and carefully move the top cover to the side.

If you're looking at the piece head on as if someone were vacuuming facing you, the belt side of the brushroll should be on your right.

Remove the far side (non belted side) of the brushroll first by lifting it straight up.

The belt should be slack enough to remove the belted side of the brushroll and replace the toothed belt.

When reinstalling the brushroll, stretch the belt a little and put that side back first. Trying to get the belt side in after doing the far end takes too much effort.

Make sure the belt is tracking straight by rotating the brushroll and adjusting the belt as needed.

Since it's all opened up you may want to give it a good cleaning too.

Reverse the rest of the steps to put it back together.

Good luck!
Be very careful when pulling apart. once all the screws are out it is likely to completely fall apart, and then will need to be reconstructed
