Hoover Windtunnel Hello! I had to change the flat belt on my vaccum and now the belt won't stay on. I can replace it, use the vaccum, then the next time the belt comes off. Is there something I did not do right? Thanks for your help! Jennfer

Burning smell coming out while using a Hoover's upright vaccum cleaner (model U6434900). Replaced both flat and v-belt. The problem appears to be coming from near the motor area. The manual does not provide any information on how to reach that area. Any help will be appreciated.

Belt slipping Belt slips off and rubs causing burning smell from the belt over heating. Of course this puts an indent into the belt and has to be replaced. How do I keep the belt from slipping off? I see no place for a belt adjustment. Which I know would eliminate the problem. Really aggravating to have to replace belt only after two uses.

I was replacing the belt on my Eureka Smartvac 4870 and one of the felt gaskets (or part of it) popped out. I thought I put it in correctly, but the first I used it after replacing the belt, the gasket got mangled by the brush. I'm wondering how important it is to get fixed; is it a part I can pick up anywhere and fix myself? Thanks for the help.

I'm no expert but if you mean the felt on the roller, you have to replace the roller (expensive,esp. for such a minor part). So. I found some felt with adhesive in the craft section at Wal-Mart, trimmed it to fit and done deal. Felt reduces friction. ... Eureka Smartvac 4870 Bagged Upright Vacuum

I have a Zanussi 1700W bagless upright vacuum cleaner which keeps cutting out after about 5/10 mins use. I had to replace the rubber drive belt which snapped not long after purchasing and it was fine for a while, but now its just keeps cutting out after a small amount of use. Nothing wrong with belt which is still intact so we don't know what the problem is. It's a great cleaner otherwise - but it's driving us mad!! Please help!

When i use the vaccum, it smells like burning rubber. I know this is probably a belt issue, but will a replacement belt solve the problem? If so what belt and where can i find it?

I would first check to see that the brush is not stuck. Remove any hair, or foreign objects that could possibly stop the brush from rotating.

No action Hi: My brush roll won't budge. After we cleaned out all the hoses and replaced a badly worn belt (burned?) when I turn it on the smell of burning rubber and smoke has continued.

Motor is sparking and smells like burning rubber. When it first happened I thought the vacuum had something jamming the beater bar. That was the smell it had, like when the belt gets burned. But when we turned it over, it wasn't jamming. Took off the base plate and turned it on. The motor area is sparking and it makes a weird noise (I assume that is because the motor fails and restarts). I looked for loose wires, can't find any. I believe I need some sort of part replaced, maybe even a n

Have a Centralux Aerus about 5 years old. Don't see a model number. There is suction but beater brush quit working. Was using for a few minutes, shut it off for a few minutes, turned it back on and suction only. Tried the reset button also. Tried the sidekick attachment and it works fine. There was no smell like something was hot. Belt is fine. Are there any fuses or anything else to try? This vacuum cleaner has not really been used that much, it is hard to believe the motor would need replaced

There probably is a loose wire in the handle near the switch or a wire off near the swivel elbow near the vac power head. With the right fastener tool to remove some screws you can fix it yourself ... Electrolux Centralux Vacuum

Roller Brush How do I install the roller brush. I didn't pay attention when I removed it and now when I attempt to vacuum my low carpet it doesn't seem to be working.

I have a power drive baggless vacuum cleaner...it runs well, but suddenly it seems to have lost most of the suction coming through the hose and floor area. When I remove the dirt container, the suction below it seems strong. I have had it to repair twice--they have tuned it up and replaced all filters and belt. It still does not pick up well when I vacuum or use the hose. Can you help ?
