Having problems with your Eureka WhirlWind Litespeed 5844 Upright Vacuum ?
Belts keep breaking
\015 Hi, I have a Eureka WhirlWind LiteSpeed. I love this vacuum and really don't want to abandon it for a new one. When I changed the belt after it broke, the new one broke almost immediately. I put it off to a fluke and installed the 2nd belt (2 in a pack). The 2nd belt worked fine for awhile, then broke. I bought more belts, same exact thing would happen. First belt breaks almost immediately, 2nd will work a little longer. Tonight, however, both belts, both brand new out of the pack broke as soon as I started vacuuming. I am meticulous about cleaning the rollers, changing the filters, and emptying the cannister.Please help me. What could this be?\015
Check the brush roll ends to see if they have melted or frozen. They should turn freely, part #361869-1. Make sure the belt isn't being pinched somewhere.

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
