I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure.
Kirby Ultimate G Bagged Upright Vacuum
On most Kirby’s the front head will remove from the rest of the vacuum, then you 1st you need to dial the belt off of the motor pulley and then release the front lock assm lever and the head will come off the machine, then remove the Kirby bottom plate and then slide the old belt off or cut it off and then slide the new belt onto the brushroll and then install the brushroll into the proper brushroll holders, then use the dial on the front of the Kirby and then dial the hook on the inside of the brushroll to the new belt and continue turning until the belt is on the fan / motor pulley and then reinstall the Kirby Bell Housing. The belt does turn very hard and look inside of the housing to see if the belt is on the fan pulley correctly, if not repeat the procedure. Also, feel free to contact your local vac dealer is you have further questions. So if you need further assistance, please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or in the yellow pages, or contact the factory phone number or website to further assist you with your questions.

Kirby heritage 2 How to put the belt on. I'm having a problem getting the belt on the rod


The belt goes around the brushroll before you install the brushroll in the nozzle compartment, you must then twist the belt lifter casting which will rotate the belt lifter hook to lift the belt into the proper location to allow you to install the nozzle compartment on the vacuum. Then rotate the belt lifter casting to release the belt onto the motor shaft.

Dirt Devil featherlite cyclonic belt comes off


What makes the belt come off?
1) Wrong belt. use only genuine DD belt. No generics.
2) Worn out belt. Sometimes a worn belt acts this way. Just because it looks good, does not mean it is good.
3) Belt improperly installed.
4) Brush roll not spinning freely. (replace Brush Roll
5) Brush roll is not installed properly.
6) Machine is worn out where it pivots between the body and the lower nozzle. To check (without a belt installed) see if there is a lot of play forward and backward between the nozzle and the main body. If so, once a new belt is installed and you are pushing and pulling on the handle the motor shaft comes out of alignment.
NOTE: the #6 problem is the rarest and usually is due to an extreme amount of use over years.

Let me know if this helps.

Hoover very noisy after new belt installed.


what is the belt # you have installed (generic)? Yes, there are problems with using generic belts on Hoover Vacuums. If you have noise I would suspect the roller, and replace it. the cost is about $25 and is something that you can install. The newer type are mande of wood and are very quiet.

Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. Usually there are screws, clips or levers on the bottom of the vacuum and you need to either remove the bottom plate and once you have taken the screws, etc. out the top cover will come off. And then you can proceed with the removal and the install of the new belt. 1st you need to remove @ least one end of the Hoover brushroll and take of the old belt and slide on a new belt. Once the belt is on the pulley side of the brushroll; then re-install the brushroll. Make sure that the brush is spinning freely B4 you install the new belt, then take a belt puller or a screwdriver with a left or right hand hook to use as a belt puller and then stretch the belt onto the motor pulley, then take and roll the belt until it is tracking straight and then re-install the top cover and or the bottom plate, tighten down the screws, levers or clips. So, please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or in the yellow pages, or contact the factory phone number or website to further assist you with your questions.

Install self propelled belt

Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. Usually the self propelled vacuum have 2 belts and you should replace them both 2 the same time 1st the self propelled belt and then the brushroll belt. Normally you would hook the belt on the pulley side of the brushroll or self propelled unit and then stretch the belt onto the motor pulley side of the motor using a belt puller or a screwdriver with a bend on the end for pulling and or stretching either belt onto the motor pulley. If you have a problem please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer.

So if you need further assistance, please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or in the yellow pages, or contact the factory phone number or website to further assist you with your questions.

Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure.
There are only 2 ways you can install a belt on a Turbo Power 2000, either you can remove the bottom plate and expose the belt, 1st place the belt on the brushroll section of the vacuum then use a belt puller or a screwdriver with a left or right hook @ the end and pull the belt onto the motor pulley, once you get the flat belt onto the motor pulley than you do what is called tracking to straighten belt out so it runs straight, replace the bottom plate. 2nd then remove the top cover by 2 to 4 screws or levers and then remove the top, then follow the procedure listed above. So if you need further assistance, please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or in the yellow pages, or contact the factory phone number or website to further assist you with your questions.
