Having problems with your Eureka Whirlwind Litespeed 5840 Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum ?

Change belt how do I get to the belt, it is off will not turn


Answers :

Turn the vacuum upside down so you can see the bottom of the head (the part that comes in contact with the floor). There are screws that need to be removed so the plate can be taken off, remove those screws. Now the brush is accessible, lift the brush out just enough to slip the belt on then after making sure the belt is still on the motor, push the bruch back into its place. Then replace the plate and screw it back together and you are done.

\015\012You are probably going to have to get a new belt, if you do you can usually get a replacement at WalMart for cheap or you can go here: http://www.dealtime.com/xPO-Eureka_Vacuum_Belt_Style_U_Extended_Life

\015\012If you decide to go to WalMart, look for the belt that says "Fits Eureka 5800 series...", it will list others too but as long as 5800 series is on the package it will work. Hope this helps!
