Having problems with your Royal Vacuums ?
I have an old Royal upright & can't get the roller off. It was not going around & I was trying to see what was going on. The belt still seems OK.
The belt may seem okay, but if it has stretched too much to get a good grip, it will slip around the shaft and/or brush. Replace it and see if that helps.

Generation 4 Apparently, my belt came off while vacumming. I had a lot of hari entwind on the roller, so cleaned off the hair.... but now I can't seem to get the belt to stay "in place". Is it supposed to move around on the brush? or be held in place? It seems to me when I try to get the hook to grab ahold of the belt, it is going tohe wrong way to grab it. Please HELP!
First off get a new belt, I am sure this one has stretched. Then put the belt around the brush roll, put it in the center, put the bottom plate back on. Then turn the big knob on the front and turn it until it locks, you will know if it grabbed the ... Vacuums
My upright kenmore progressive vacuum will not suction up when using the sweeper. It will suction things when I use one of the tools. I have put in a new bag and have tried to see if anything is blocking the bottom. It sometimes makes a very loud noise when I try to vacuum. If I press the intell clean on and off yellow button the noise may go away but it still does not work.
Double check hose placement, making sure you have the hose inserted into the correct slot. The long attachment nozzle stores in the front hole on the right, and the sucking hose inserts into the rear hole on the right. I know this is too simple of a ... Vacuums
Replaces the belt on dirt devil dynamite pluse model put everything back together started it and it burt the new belt up that fast. I put it around the beater brush and the metal bar I thought it should go around, yet it seemed like there should be something else there to put the belt on. What do you suggest? Do you have picture I could go by?
The metal bar you put it around if the bar itself does not spin it is going to burn the belt up. Every thing that the belt is supposed to go around has to turn or the belt will rub on the piece not moving and brake. ... 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

Hi, I have a cleanview bagless model# 3576-2 and my belt keeps breaking (it seems like one of the rings it should wrap around is missing) right now I have been wrapping it around the brush and a metal rod. Also, the dirt collected is going directly into the hose and not the bagless filter. What is going on?

I cleaned out my brush in the bottom front, cleaned out the small tubing going into the canister, and the canister itself. I also changed the filter.I snapped everything back into place, but Since then, it doesn't seem to have any suction and there seems to be a space between the canister and the bottom of the vacumm where the canister sits. At that area, you can feel air coming out when trying to vacumm and it just doesn't pick up, it seems to be just blowing stuff around.

My Kirby 2HD has started making an odd roaring noise but still works fine. I have taken the front assembly off and cleaned and adjusted the roller and checked the belt. The noise seems to come from the motor housing. I have tried to wiggle the main shaft at the front (bearings?) and it seems tight. Can't seem to get the other housings apart. Any ideas? Thanks, John
It is quite possible, it just needs lubed. The motor comes in direct contact with dirt so, you have to make sure the front bearing has a drop of oil on it from time to time. If it starts to scream at you within one month, after oiling, the bearing ... Kirby Heritage II Vacuum
I have a dyson animal dc17 vacuum and it totally died. Now I can't figure out which wires go where when I install my new motor. (motor #: 160906G) Do you happen to know where the various color wires go or a place I can see a diagram of the motor with wires attached? I should have taken a photo of it before tearing out the old motor. I don't know where to connect the three coming out from the upright portion of the machine and the red seems to go to a switch (?) and there is a black (connected t
Trying to fix new belt to Hoover Turbo Power vacuum cleaner. Don't see how the belt becomes taut. Fitting it around the roller, there is nowhere to fit the belt to, it just sits loose.

I have used my Steam Vac for carpeting, but until today, had never tried cleaning upholstery with the spin-scrub brush. I spent a miserable afternoon trying to control the spray, which seemed to go everywhere AROUND the furniture, but not ON the furniture! Additionally, I never did get the water into the recovery tank, despite many attempts to connect and re-connect the hoses and recovery tank/lid.
I can sympathize. My vac came with two handheld attachments. I have better luck with the handheld attachment that doesn't have the spin-scrub pads. To keep the water from going all over the place, you need to keep the part the you hold only about 1 ... Hoover SteamVac F5914-900 SpinScrub Upright Vacuum

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. I went back to the shop and the tech denied that there was anything wrong. (I didn't have the vac with me). No

** suction The best way to describe it is that when I was vacuuming I could see dust clouds at the front of the vacuum where the light is swirling around in the air. It was like it was blowing dust around instead of picking it up. I checked the tubing and found that it was clogged with some paper and hair ***** etc.... So I cleaned it out and tried it again and it still was not picking up properly. I had my husband take all the tubing apart to check for other clogging and there was none. When I

Vaccuum issue I just bought a Eureka upright model 5892 BVZ, my concern is, I bought it on sale (floor model) and it didn't have a manual with it. I took it home and tried it, and although it appears to be working very well there is not dirt in the catch bin on the front of the unit. I tried the hose w/attachment and again it worked very well in picking up the cat hair, but where does the hair and the dirt go, I am afraid it is spitting it back out somewhere since I can not see anything in the c

Last night as I was vacuuming, I noticed that the belt stop indicator light was on. I pulled out the hair that had gotten tangled around the brush in hopes of solving the problem. It didn't change things. I then unscrewed the entire bottom piece to take out the brush roller. I removed hair from the end piece of the brush roller and reattached the belt; however, I cannot figure out where the microchip is supposed to go so that I can reassemble the base piece by screwing it back together.

Hi The band snapped the other day on my Vax Swift Turbo upright hoover and i got a new band from a Hoover repair centre. (Im assuming the bloke sold me the correct band). Was tight to go on. And it seemed ok. However, after switching on the band snapped immediately. Kinda burnt as well (at the point it snapped). Any ideas as to what the problem is here? The hoover is roughly 2 years old and used around 3 times per week. thanks Mike

I have an electrolux genesis upright vacuum that I bought used about 8 years ago. It has been A great vacuum the best I ever had. I thought the belt had come off so I took it in for repair. They called today and said that the brush rotor motor was bad and it would be around 148.00 dollars to repair. My question is could I buy the part and have my husband replace it or would it be too complicated. Can you still buy an electrolux vacuum comparable to this one and how much are they. I love this vac
