Is there any way to repair or replace the belt GUIDE on the inside of the belt compartment of a '97 Hoover Wind Tunnel (not self-propelled)?

This guide is a long piece of molded material (part of the compartent wall) to keep the belt from coming off the pulley. It also had a sort of metal clip on it. It was loose and I took it off because of the way the pa

Hoover Wind Tunnel 7500 Brush not Turning. I have replaced the Brush and the belt. The problem does not seem to be either to me. I believe might be a missing part. The place were the belt hooks on is a metal pole which never seems to grip the belt well. In fact it seems loose most of the time and slips on the brush, causing the belt to eventually burn up. Could there be a missing plastic or rubber piece meant to hold the belt taught on the metal pole?

I replaced the belt in our Eureka Boss Smart Vac, it still seems loose, it uses a type R belt. The beater belt still doesn't seem to turn properly and seems that it doesn't pick up very well when I use it on my berber carpet. We have 2 dogs and I like to use it frequently. I have changed the bags and belt......

Brush Roll belt stops turning durring vacuuming on WindTunnel self-propelled, v belt is a little loose with handle down. Tensioning roll is engaged OK, but fully at the end of its travel. Replaced belts flat and v, but still stops turning even on high carpet setting when vacuuming. Carpet setting and height adjustment appears to be working OK, roll is clean and turns easily when out. Also turns easily until it engages the carpet. Self propel function works just fine.

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

I have a Panasonic MCV7515 UPRIGHT VACUUM and need to remove the cowling that covers the brushes to clean the hair out of the bearings, but it isn't clear how that can be done without a crowbar or sledgehammer. Removing all the visible screws makes the hindmost part loose, but not the front half. Also, is there an easy way to replace the belt?

I am replacing drive belt on Eureka 4870 upright. Before installing I removed bottomplate and was cleaning out accumulated lint, hair and grit. Found a pair of identical (reciprocal) felt gaskets sucurely inserted above and below the roller brush, and one small loose piece of felt approximately 1/3 inch wide by 1 inch long that came out as I was pulling out debris. It has a slight crease across the middle as though I was not resting on an entire flat surface, but I find no other clues as to wher

The beater bar on my Dyson won't turn. The vacuum runs and suctions but the bar won't turn and the belt is not broke. The beater bar did get a carpet fiber caught and wrapped around it which stopped the bar and I removed the bar to cut the fiber loose and replaced it and now it won't turn

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.

The original belt on my upright Kenmore Progressive broke and I replaced it with the spare that was in the vacuum. The vacuum and spare belt are about 10 years old. Then the spare broke after one vacuuming session and there was a burning smell coming from the vacuum. I ordered new belts and replaced it with the new belt. It seems to be working fine with no smell. I checked the belt after I vacuumed the family room and although it was in tact, the belt was very hot. Is that normal? Should t

I have an old Hoover vacuum model # U5035-930. The belt broke and I tried replacing the belt myself. I couldn't stretch the belt to attach it to the motor pully. It was belt # 38525-027 M6. Which I got from the previous owner. I took it to a vacuum repair place and he replaced it with belt # 38528-027 J4. I cannot find this belt anywhere.
