Many of these belts look very similar, but there are differences, and if you try to pick the correct belt just by how it looks, you could very easily end up with an incompatible Bissell vacuum belt for your model. Along with this, some vacuums use multiple internal belts for different functions of the vacuums.

Kirby Vacuum Hi Bruce, In my opinion, yes the Kirby would be worth it, as long as you are not replacing the motor. The switch would be the most expensive part besides the motor that would need to be replaced. The switch costs USD 49.99, the cord is roughly $39.99, and the carbon brushes are $29.99. I can easily walk you through any of these repairs should you need help. Kirby’s are great vacuum cleaners, that usually last 30+ years. Brand new these machines sell in the US for $1600 or more,

ANSWER : You will just have to start taking the base aprt until you can get the motor, Just remember how it was so you can put it back together correctly again. When you have the motor off, look at the fan chamber, you probably have a crack or hole in it. You can replace the part if it is bad #38736019.

I have a Hoover, Steam spin scrub, Model F5897-900.
Only used it a couple times and the motor gave out.
First started being noisy then a bad smell. It did seem
noisier that what I would expect from the start but I
didn’t realize it was a problem with the shaft of the motor.
I took it apart and found the motor shaft wasn’t
true and causing sparks. The motor looks like it can
not be taken apart and repaired. This seems like a default from the beginning but it is past warranty. Also noti
ANSWER : You will have to replace the motor and the hose asm. thehooverstore.com may be able to help, or you should be able to find a repair shop that can order them for you.

HI, I’m trying to find a part for a Sharp upright vacuum. Its the back part of the handle where the cord is stored. I have taken it off but can’t find any part # on it. The model number for the vacuum is EC12TWT4. I was thinking that if I could find a free owner’s manual, that would give me the part # and then I could look for it on the net.
ANSWER : Any vacuum repair shop should be able to get it

I need to change the motor in a vax 6131 but i don’t know how to get into it to get the change it?
I also need to get into the motor assembly housing to change a part but can’t see how it comes apart!!
ANSWER : On the handle there is one small pozidrive screw, remove and orange panel comes away revealing powercable securing bar. Remove 2 screws and this reveals a 10mm headed bolt. Under label on top of handle there is another small pozzi screw, undo this and the handle cover can be removed revealing the other 10mm bolt which needs to be removed. The upper orange cowl can now be eased upwards and if you note where the 2 switches are located, they can be eased from the handle area by depressing the switch locating clips. This allows the upper cover to be put to one side with the power cable still threaded through. DO NOT REMOVE any of the connectors from the connections otherwise you might need a competent electrician to help you. At this point there are 3 similar 10mm bolts which, when removed, allow the bottom black plastic ‘ring’ to be removed from the orange plastic with the motor attached. You then should be able to replace the required..—————————————–.—————————–.To disassemble a  vax you first remove 2 screws holding the handle cover. One is just above where the power flex enters the handle, the other is at the mid-point of the top, hidden under the label. Both are small crosshead screws. Before doing attempting this, you need to be competent with working on mains electric wiring, as some of this has to be removed to do all this. 

Once the handle covers are removed, the next bit is to gently lever off the speed control knob – it’s a tight friction fit, then undo the nut holding it to the handle cover panel. After this undo the mains power connections from the multi-block joiner they go into then remove the 2 screws securing the mains wire. Then undo 2 bolts at each end of the handle going downwards into the main body. At this point the handle can be removed as well as the top body plate. You have to fiddle the electrics and switches through the hole in the top body plate to remove it. Now 3 bolts and a small crosshead screw is all that holds the upper motor section to the lower. Remove these and you can separate the 2 halves which gives you acess to the water pump. This is held in by screws founf underneath the plastic ring at the base of the motor body (around where the small reound blue sponge filter goes). This ring is held in by plastic springy clips. Gently lever round it to get it come off.

The female part of the catch which holds the lid to the accessories compartment closed has broken. This forms part of the handle to the vacuum cleaner.We’ve had the vacuum for less than a year but cant find the receipt so i think i will just have to pay for the parts. What is the part called that i need or the part number and where can i get it from. Many thanks
ANSWER : Even if you do not have the receipt you are still entitled to one or two year warranty.
Since appliance sales are recorded after-sale by manufacturer, you need to contact the manufacturer to validate the warranty and get the replacement.
