How do I know when to replace my vacuum cleaner belt?

Make sure your vacuum cleaner is kept in peak condition by replacing the vacuum cleaner belt regularly. A worn belt keeps the brush roll from adequately cleaning your carpet. Replace the belt every 6 to 12 months. Don't wait until you smell "burning rubber" or your vacuum stops picking up dirt!

We recommend replacing the belt on your vacuum cleaner or power nozzle every 6 to 12 months. To use a more scientific approach, here's what to do. Unplug your vacuum cleaner and open the belt compartment. Slowly turn the brush roll by hand until the belt has completed one full revolution. If you see any of the following, replace the belt.
  • Cuts, nicks, splits or other tears
  • Burning or glazing of the rubber, particularly on the side of the belt that contacts the brush roll, idler pulley or motor shaft
  • Frayed sections or missing teeth on geared belts
  • Excessive stretch. A fingertip firmly pressed on the belt's longest unsupported stretch should result in 1/4 inch or less movement
What happens if I don't replace the belt?

At best, the belt will last a few more weeks or months before it eventually breaks. Meanwhile, the cleaning efficienty of your vacuum cleaner is reduced because the brush roll is not spinning as forcefully as it should.

At worst, the belt may leave rubber deposits on the motor shaft and brush roll. It may shred and end up wrapped around various internal parts of the vacuum cleaner, requiring more extensive repairs. In some cases, the belt may spark and smoke or even catch fire.
