Belt Maintenance | How to Videos | PowerLifter™/Momentum®

If you are experiencing trouble with your vacuum picking up well, you may need to check the brush and belt. We'll guide you though the process.

You will need a Philips screwdriver.

  • Start by unplugging your machine.
  • Lay the vacuum down to the ground to expose the brush roll.
  • Use your Philips screwdriver to remove the 6 screws holding the brush cover.
  • Then lift the brush cover off of the vacuum.
  • Grab both ends of the brush and lift straight out of the vacuum. Then slip the brush off of the belt.
  • Remove the belt from the motor pulley if needed.
  • To inspect the brush  roll, set it on its end and spin it by flicking it once. If it doesn't spin freely it is time to replace your brush roll.
  • Inspect your belt, if it is broken or damaged it will need to be replaced.
  • Place the new belt over the motor pulley and stretch the other end over the brush roll.
  • Replace the brush roll by placing the belt-side of the brush in first, then turning the other end until it slides into place.
  • When the brush roll is in, turn it to align the belt.
  • Then replace the bottom cover and reinsert the 6 screws using your Philips screwdriver.

These few steps should ensure your brush & belt is working properly.
