I\015\012have a whispertone vacuum, different model #, but maybe instructions\015\012will be the same. Turns out I didn't need a new belt, just clean out\015\012the crud and reset overload protector. The instructions in the manual\015\012tell you to remove the light cover and bulb first. To do this, press in\015\012and lift both sides. Push in and turn bulb counterclockwise to remove.\015\012(you need to do this because the next step involves turning the unit\015\012over). This takes you to
\015\012Step 2. Unscrew the cover screws ( on either side of bulb).
\015\012Step 3. Turn unit over. To remove cover, insert screwdriver at cover tabs on both sides and twist to release tabs.
\015\012Step. 4 Turn unit right side up. Press handle release pedal and lower\015\012the swivel. Tilt cover forward from back until front snaps free.
\015\012Step 5. Carefully insert and twist screwdriver at each brush support to free brush from base.
\015\012Step 6. Remove worn belt.
\015\012Step 7. Slide brush supports off to check and clean brush support areas.
\015\012
\015\012To replace belt: slide washers and brush supports onto brush assembly.
\015\012Install new belt over motor drive, then over brush sprocket.
\015\012Snap brush supports into place on base. Be sure brush supports are not upside down.
\015\012Line up front of cover and base. Rest cover on front edge of base. Tilt\015\012cover to back. Press cover firmly until side tabs snap into place.\015\012Replace cover screws, light bulb and light cover.
On the Kenmore powermate the cover over the light can to be popped off, the directions for the base and brush removal are on that plate. Basically you take out the 2 philips screws and then the bottom can be pried off easily with a twist of the screwdriver. For easier removal and detailed cleaning the rubber around the base can also be taken off. The directions indicate it's necessary to put a flat head scewdriver between the bearing and the base to remove the roller.
