How to Replace Belt and Brush Roll on Oreck Conquer

Step 1: Prepare Your Work Area

Before starting the replacement process, ensure that your Oreck Conquer Vacuum is unplugged from the power source. Place the vacuum on a clean and stable work surface with easy access to the underside.

Step 2: Remove the Bottom Plate

Turn the Oreck Conquer Vacuum upside down to expose the underside. Locate the screws securing the bottom plate and use a Phillips screwdriver to remove them. Set aside the screws in a small container to prevent misplacement.

Once the bottom plate is removed, you’ll have clear access to the brush roll and belt. Take note of the belt’s position and how it is connected to the brush roll and motor shaft.

Step 4: Remove the Old Belt

Using a flathead screwdriver, gently disengage the old belt from the motor shaft and brush roll. Carefully slide the brush roll out of its housing.

Step 5: Install the New Belt

Take the replacement belt and loop it around the motor shaft, ensuring it sits securely in the belt groove. Slide the other end of the belt over the brush roll, making sure it fits into the designated groove.

Step 6: Install the New Brush Roll

Place the replacement brush roll into its housing, ensuring that it aligns properly with the belt and the brush roll housing. Make sure the brush roll spins freely.

Position the bottom plate back over the brush roll and belt assembly. Secure it in place by tightening the screws you removed earlier. Ensure that the plate is snug to maintain proper alignment.

Step 8: Test the Vacuum
