Having problems with your Kirby G6 Bagged Upright Vacuum ?

Why does the belt keep breaking on my kirby

\015 I have replaced the belt on my kirby twice. It keeps breaking. It is almost as though the pulley keeps getting too hot and melting it in half. Am I putting the belt on incorrectly or could it be something else?\015

Answers :

Odds are that the problem is not with the belt or the pulley, but with an agitator (rotating brush) that isn't turning freely. Remove the rotating brush and check to see that it spins freely. If not, you would either need to disassemble it (removing the end caps) to see if removing whatever hair / diebris is stuck between the end caps and the body of the agitator, and if that doesn't cause free rotation, then it means your agitator bearings are likely bad which means you will need to replace the agitator assembly.

Replacement parts... I've got a 3594 Bissell and the belt has come completely off. In the process of breaking, it bent the metal guide inside the motor housing and melted the plastic that holds the guide and keeps the belt inline with the roller.
