Now, I'm sure we all know how to change a Vacuum Cleaner's belt, but I made this video for the average consumer who may not know.

How did I do ?

Well Im sure that's handy but ESPARES have already started doing that - their one on how to change the belt on the Sebo X1 Automatic is fantastic.

I wonder if many cleaners have been taken to a repair shop just for a belt breaking?

They did in my shop. Loads of people from all walks of life. And very glad I was to do the repair and charge for it. Also, many cleaners had other things wrong too, like a torn mains flex. And you can be sure that I would change their filters in a clean fan machine at the same time. And charge for them.

Yeah I know there are already some videos on YouTube but I find them very irritating.

Yes, I have to say I agree with that. 45 seconds was the most I have been able to manage. That was yours Jmurry, so you video is officially the one I was able to watch the longest.

I haven't even watched the video myself yet, so I'll have to do so and see what you saw in your 45 seconds if viewing.

That Electrolux sure is hard getting the belt back on with that cover over the pulley.

I had the camera on Pause for about 5 minutes struggling away to get it on, then afterwords I managed to sound calm like it had all gone fine! Ha ha.
