Having problems with your Kirby G5 Bagged Upright Vacuum ?
Oreck belts keep coming off
\015 Hello,\015\012\015\012I have an oreck XL upright and the belts keep coming off. I have cleaned it througly inside & made sure the brushroller was cleaned well. I did notice on the side of the brushroller where the belt goes on to is a little worn could this be the problem? Please help I cant keep going through belts every 5 minutes ( and I mean that literally) it's becoming very costly. Do you think a new roller brush would help?\015
For orecks it is usually the fan housing has loosened everything. your belt will slip. if your vac is under warranty, then fixing should be free. if not, it is about $60
If the pulley on the brush roll is worn, then I would replace the brushroll. Look at the ends where the brush roll sits in to make sure the casing hasn't over heated and not holding the brush in place. Also make sure the motor is shifting and causing the belt to come off. Another is if you are catching a rug or towel, that also will cause the belt to come off. I am assuming you using a new belt and not a worn one. After only a short time, belts stretch and need to be replaced.

I heard that a class action lawsuit against Oreck Vacuum is being started because of all the problems customers are having with their vacuums. Does anyone know about this? My Oreck is only a couple of years old and keeps burning up belts. I took it in after only one week of usage when I started to notice white smoke coming out of it and the smell of burning rubber. I feel like I got the old run-around, when the service tech told me he couldn't find anything wrong (but replaced the burned up belt

Windtunnel belt I have a new Hoover Windtunnel canister. The belt keeps coming off. It happened a couple weeks ago (several times after putting the belt back on) so I assumed I might need a new belt as it might have dried out at the store.

Is there any way to repair or replace the belt GUIDE on the inside of the belt compartment of a '97 Hoover Wind Tunnel (not self-propelled)?

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. I've got it running again by using a screw I filed all the threads off of, but it only works for 10 minutes at a time before breaking another belt. This process is getting expensive, as it usually takes 30 minutes to completely vacuum the house. Is ther
