Ok So I Brought My Sanitaire Home And I Disinfected It From All Of The School That I Used To Works At's Germs and I Took The Magnet Off Because It Was A Little To Heavy & A Placed A New Bag. So When I Went To Go Turn On The Vacuum It Too Was Hard To Move and It Was A Little Louder That Usual... Why Is This Is The Belt On Wrong?

Thanks, Daniel!

Sucks too hard...

look up the thread Sanitaire vs Kirby for the modification we routinely do in the shop.

A fresh bag make air flow through the bag more, so it'll clamp down more than it would with a dirty bag... :)

And I can't believe I forgot about this, but, one other way to modify a Sanitaire like yours is to fit an 8-position dial-a-nap knob in place of the 6-position one, just 1 screw to undo and refit and that's it, my ZC-880 and S663 have them and makes the height adjustment easier and less of the "too high or too low" issues... :)
