DC01 Belts

DC01 Belts

The drive shaft or motor pulley turns the belt which causes the brushroll to turn and provides the necessary agitation to deep clean your carpet.

Over time the belts stretch, causing the belt to slip on the drive shaft. This means the brushroll turns slowly or not at all. The vacuum still picks up the easily seen surface litter, but the sand and grit at the base of your carpet starts to build up, causing excessive carpet wear. The belts can also snap if the brushroll is jammed, this is normally noticeable with a burning rubber smell and smoke.

The quality of belts varies widely. If your new belt is too loose, again the brushroll will turn slowly, if at all. If it is too strong or tight, it puts excessive wear and strain on your motor and bearings which can cause damage, needing repair.
