WARNING: To reduce the risk of electric shock, turn power switch off and disconnect plug from electrical outlet before performing maintenance or troubleshooting checks
What you will need: 1 Phillips screwdriver & 1 flathead screwdriver
While the machine is upright, unplug the machine and remove both tanks. Remove the nozzle and brush chamber cover (see steps in Brush Roll & Nozzle Care). Press the recline pedal and lay the machine on its back
With the machine laying on its back, locate the belt access plate. Use a Phillips-head screwdriver to remove the belt access plate screw.
Remove the Belt Access Plate.
With the machine still on its back, use a Phillips-head screwdriver to remove the screw on the brushroll end cap.
If the Gear Belt is broken, gently remove it. If you are replacing your brush rolls, gently remove the belt.
There are washers at the ends of the brush rolls, be careful that these do not fall off or get lost.
Use a flathead screwdriver and press it into the Belt Access Door slot. Lift to remove the Belt Access Door.
Turn the machine on its side and use a Philips screwdriver to remove the screw just underneath the wheel. Slide the wheel down to remove.📘
NOTE: To replace brush rolls, remove them from the metal posts and replace. Make sure the metal post goes completely through the end of the brush roll. The brush roll bristles should be aligned in a ‘V’ pattern as pictured.
Align brush rolls with belt at other end. To ensure alignment, hold the end of one brush roll and twist. The other brush roll rotates with it. Check that washers are in place. Reassemble the belt and end cap, securing with screws you removed.
If the flat belt is broken, gently remove the belt. If it needs replacing for any reason, the gear belt should already be removed before removing the flat belt. Rotate the machine back to its side. Feed the new flat belt through the opening so that it wraps around the red pulley.
Keep it wrapped on the red pulley and adjust the machine so it is laying on it’s back again. Use your thumb to stretch the flat belt back to wrap around the metal axle.
Resecure the Belt/Brush Access Plate: Slide the wheel up back into the slot and secure with the screw that was removed.
Snap the Belt Access Door back down into place.
NOTE: See page Brush Roll & Nozzle Care for how to put the brush roll cover and nozzle back in place.
