Not sucking i have a KIRBY G3 that was working great. One day there was a strong smell and the brush roller belt broke so I replaced it. The fan looks good. Now the vacuum does not **** up dirt but instead seems to very gently blow air forward. I took the (new) bag off and it is blowing hard int the bag. I am stumped!

The roller turns strong and the belt is new,but the dirt accu-mulates and doesnt get sucked up! there no observable clogs and the filter side vent blows strong.......ive removed beater,belt and am assuming there may be a problem inside the motor housing as all else appears normal..i was an aviation mech in the military and the above is my assessment........
Are you sure you have the belt on correctly?\015\012If it is not, the beater brush will push the dirt, etc, in front of itself and not back to the suction port. ... Hoover Tempo Widepath Upright Vacuum - Blue
The belt broke and after putting on new belt I dicscovered the cylinder with the brushes attached wasn't turning. After I finally got the cylinder to turn it makes a very very loud noise and also now it doesn't pick up the dirt. The vacuum is less than a year old.
Check the cylinder with brushes does not have hair or carpet fibers causing it to bind. With the belt removed the brush should turn freely and fairly easy. The original belt probably broke because of this. You may have to fully dis-assemble the head ... Dirt Devil Vacuums
Hoover self-propelled windtunnel U6430-900 flat belt gets hot & becomes hard to push. It has a filter bag. Purchased 8/2/01. Took one plate off bottom. Used a compressor to blow out dirt & dust. Put new thin belt on.
Belts get hot when fibers from carpet get wound arounf the belts mounting shaft. Best to take a razor and cut off any fibers so the belt doesn't get hot again ... Hoover Self-Propelled WindTunnel Bagless Upright VacuumVacuum
I have a Dirt Devil Vision and when I put a clean canister back in place the suction at the bottom of the filter clogs up and very rarely go into the canister.

How do I change the belt for my dirt devil vacuum cleaner? It blows out dust.
To change the belt, take off the bottom plate, the belt runs between the brush roll and the motor shaft. But if it is blowing out dust, you may have a clog in the dirt inlet by the brush roll, or in the hose. ... Vacuums
Floor Attachment I took off my floor attachment, but now the belt seems to be off and I can't seem to get it back on right. I can't use the attachment and I don't know why it's so hard to figure this out. They say, just turn it to belt off, but when i turn it it lift's it up and can't line up with the belt off label. Then, when I turn it the other way, it's off. So I've been trying to pull it off so when it lines up with belt off, it's off. But the I turn it the other way and it's still off a

For some reason, when I tried to put the floor vacuum attachment back on and vacuum the carpet, I realized that the belt was not engaging. the belt is in there and not broken, but it is not turning the beater brush. it is just hanging loose around the brush. When I turn the wheel to engage the brush, it picks the belt up, but when I attach the vacuum to the attachment, the brush is just not turning.

There is a shaft that comes out of the pump of my Bissell 1623-1 Power Steamer with gears on it. The belt to the brush attaches to it. When I went to change the belt, the belt was fine but the gear itself with the small shaft on it was no longer attached and just dropped out. It looks like there might have been a bushing there, but no more. Any ideas?

We lost our instructions to the Kirby Shampoo attachement and how to attach it to the main unit, the belt and how to use it. We need complete instructions and explanations on how to use this as we have tried and the belt does not attach to the main unit, the brush does not turn and the hops along the carpet and no water, etc. returns to the tray.

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.

My Mom has a Dirt Devil Featherlite and the belt falls off all the time. I put it on three times today and it falls off within a few minutes. The belt post I put it on doesn't have anything to hold the belt on. Is there supposed to be something holding the belt?
It sounds like the belt is too worn and loose to stay on. Buy a new belt specified for that model of vacuum and install. Ensure that there is only a slight amount of give in the belt when you press the middle. ... Dirt Devil CE6100 Featherlite Upright Vacuum
