The function of a suction fan is to collect the dirt, debris and allergens into the dirt cup or storage bags. If the fan belt is worn out or broken it will not create the suction pressure to collect the dirt and debris. The good news is that the fan belt can be replaced and it can be done at home without having to take it to a repair center.
How to repair a suction fan in a vacuum cleaner with a bag
•The first and foremost thing that you need to do is unplug the vacuum cleaner from the outlet and remove the cover of the vacuum. Also remove the bag from inside.
•With help of a screwdriver, remove the screws from the four corners at the bottom where the bristle brushes are found.
•Rotating the bristles clockwise and counterclockwise will loosen the dirt. Wipe the inside. Using a tissue paper or a clean rag, wipe the inside edges of the compartment and the sides of the plate.
•If the fan belt has to be replaced, remove it from its hub, clean the area and then put the new one.
•Ensure to reattach all the parts that you have pulled out. Tighten the screws before plugging the vacuum cleaner into the outlet.
