Hi and Welcome to Just Answer,
Ok, let's take a look at this;



I found this model, should be about the same to most uprights of this brand


Go to page 16 and 17, it talks about removing the brushes, this will be the same to remove the belt

It was the Discovery 111 (3) electrolux. Couldn't find model number.
I can't figure out how to take the roller off so that I can put the belt around it.
I looked at the pictures but they didn't help me much.
thank you

ok, the discovery III has been discontinued, and was actually from a different company at the time. That is why I was having trouble finding the manual.


I found the manual here, use the drop down, discovery II and III are the same manual

But this was really no help to change the belt



I also found this thread that states that you don't take it apart like other vacuums to remove the belt, but you remove the top and sides to get to it, you can read more here, look at the last post for instructions



If you still can't figure it out I have found a contact that can help you further here
