Having problems with your Kirby G4 Bagged Upright Vacuum ?

How do I get this darn belt back on my Kirby?

\015 I had to get something out of my vacuum that was blocking. I took the front off etc. Now I can't remember how to get the belt to stay on so I can continue vacuuming. Can't find the manual I so carfully put away and getting frustrated. \015\012\015\012Thanks for your help.\015

I have a Kirby Heritage II which normally works amazingly well, but it's not playing at all nicely today - and of course we have apartment inspections tomorrow. *dies* The belt broke today (as did the replacement belt, which I'd bought at the same time, so apparently the rubber was old), so I went over to Stark's to get some new ones - but it still won't cooperate. I've taken the head apart and put it back together several times, to be sure that everything is properly seated, but it's just not

I have a Miele S1721 Powerhouse upright vacuum. When the belt broke I took it into the shop (because when i tried to replace the belt, the tension was so tight I couldn't get it back together!!). When I got it home I DISCOVERED THAT THE HEIGHT ADJUSTMENT DIDN'T WORK anymore. It seems like it's set really hight, because it no longer contacts and brushes the carpet. So it's now useless.
