I have an upright vacuum cleaner with rotating brushes at the intake. What rotates them is a belt that is rotated by a small rotating divot-looking thing.
The belt is always falling off of that divot.
The divot used to be silver/steel-colored, but is now brassy. I suspect, therefore, that it got smoothed out by use, and the smoothness is making the belt slide off of it. Does that seem reasonable? Can anyone suggest another explanation?
But what I really seek is a remedy to the belt-sliding-off-the-divot situation. (If the problem is smoothness of the divot, then perhaps a way to roughen it up.)
