PowerLifter Pet - Checking/Changing the Belt | Model 1793

If you are experiencing trouble with your vacuum picking up well, you may need to check the brush and belt. We'll guide you through 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 hold the brush cover.
  • Then lift the brush cover off the vacuum.
  • Grab both ends of the brush and lift straight out of the vacuum. Then slip the brush off 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 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 and belt is working properly.
