104 Teeth

I have a T 210 turbo head. Dyno vac in Alberta sent me a replacement belt with 106 teeth,my broken belt has 104 teeth and of course the belt is too long. If I purchase a T 210 belt from you, how many teeth will it have. From what I can find I need a 3mm pitch 9mm wide HTD series belt with 104 teeth.

This belt has 104 teeth.

I am looking for this belt for the Turbocat Turbine Powerhead with all these #'s MBL 7053M312 PZ IOS2N 31017 100

Hello, there is only one TurboCat belt and it fits all TurboCats and the other names this brush has been called over the years. Basically, if your air-driven brush head looks like this one then this is the belt for it, guaranteed.

Available in Stores?

Store bought compatible belts for the turbine power head?

The turbo head belts are not available in regular stores and not in all central vacuums stores. It is a niche product.

Belt 7227 ?

My manual indicates the part number for the belt I need for my Turbo Cat as 7227. You list what appears to be the correct part as part #45519. Is this the correct replacement part for my turbine powerhead? Thanks, Deb Morton, Il

Hello Deb, yes this is the 7227 belt, but we give it a different internal part number.

Carpet Cat Belt?

I have an old Carpet Cat (approx 1989) that came with my Vacu-Maid Central Vac. I need a cogged belt that is approx 12 1/2" in cirumference. The number on the belt is 134472 9Q 1. Do you have a belt that will replace this one?

Sorry, we do not have that belt and doubt it is still around. Our suggestion is to replace the head with a new TurboCat.

Carpet Cat Vacuflo Belt?

I am not sure if this is the right one for my model. I moved into a home with a Vacuflow system installed. The carpet unit appears to be called "Carpet Cat" by Vacuflo. My belt looks just like this including the cogs, but I don't know if it is the right size. I have no manuals. All I have is the carpet unit that has Vacuflo and Carpet Cat painted on it. I can't even turn up anythin related to vacuums when I try to google Carpet Cat. Please help.

Hello, that is a new one! We do know that they called their carpet brush many names. If it looks at all like the TurboCat then this is your belt. If it doesn't then we can help if you send us a photo.

I have a CT-14DX. Is this the belt that I need?

Fasco Compatible?

I have a Fasco System central Vac in my house (~18 yrs old) It has an electric power brush with no name on it. Numbers and info on power brush unit; L-4 House Hold Type F1375AA E10071 6189 The unit does have a light and a window to view the belt. Can you help me find a belt that will fit?

Hello, we are asked for this belt a lot and we don't have one. Fasco is out of business and there is not a cross reference. We ask that you try a local vacuum repair shop or purchase a new nozzle (which we'd love to help you out with...please call). Thanks.

Goodyear Belt #5960

I put Goodyear belt #5960 for turbocat RD1990, and its making noises, the belt seem to be loose. Is this the right belt for this vacum?? Thanks, David

Hi David, the RD1990 takes this replacement belt and replaces your older belt. Thanks for asking.

How To Replace

How do I replace the belt. Mine is broken and fell out, I don't know how it was fixed. thank you Julianna

If you have one of product models listed in this belts' product name, there is a cover on the bottom that comes off with two twist holders. Also remove the metal around the roller brush by taking the screws out. Take one end of the brush out, slip the new belt around. As the belt goes through the narrow channel it does NOT go under the metal rod. The belt crosses itself on the side facing you above the metal rod. Lastly, slip belt over the small gear.

Instructions How to Replace TurboCat Belt

Belt 7227 for Turbocat, can you please provide detailed installation instructions with diagram or YouTube video. Thank you, Boris, Philadelphia

Turn your power brush over and remove the clear plastic belt protector by turning the two black clips holding it in place. Remove the three screws holding the baseplate. Pull the baseplate off and remove the belt shroud. Remove the brush roller and shaft supports. Pull the brush roller out. Slide the belt off the turbine and off the brush roller. Place new belt on the turbine and slide over brush roller. (Be sure that the belt is properly twisted. The belt overlaps itself above the metal bar in the narrow channel.) Place the base plate onto the housing and reinsert three screws.

New Belt, Still No Suction

Hello The questions are for a TP210 head The brushes do not turn when the head is placed on a carpet. I have replaced the belt. When it is unpside down the brushes turn smoothly and will take substantial pressure and still rotate. When I turn it the right way round it keeps turning but soon after touching the floor the brushes stop rotating. When it is turned upside doen they otate again. It also makes a high pitch whining noise (this may be normal). I saw above that the belt goes round the roller and round the spindle. Between the two there is a metal roller, I have put the belt so that it is round the roller. Is this correct? Thank you Konrad, Princeton

Either it is time to replace or your vacuum system has a leak (usually micro leaks in older hoses). This brush highly depends on zero leaks. Have you consider an electric hose and brush? A new electric kit fits right into your old system without modification, runs quieter, and picks up like a hungry man.

Quantity Discount?

Does this belt come in a 3 pack or other multi pack.

Not at this time, sorry.

Hi, yes this is the correct replacement belt for your model.

Stretched Belt?

I have a TP210. When the small gear rotates the belt slips and so the roller does not turn. Does this mean the belt has become stretched and needs replacing? Thank you. Konrad Princeton

Hello Konrad, yes, that usually indicates a stretched belt.

Supreme Turbo Kit, Blue

I have a Vacu-Maid Supreme Turbo Kit with a Translucent blue Turbocat power brush (TURBINE POWERHEAD) - Is this the belt I need. Have purchased 2 belts on line and neither fit my powerhead. An answer by e-mail will be greatly appreciated.

Do the lines on the inside of your belt run long ways, not sideways like a cogged belt? Then you need this belt http://builtinvacuum.com/retail/shopretail.php?part_no=45615. If it is a cogged belt then you need the regular TurboCat belt 45519.

Turbo-Cat Belt 7227

This is Harold form Sacramento CA. The local vaccum cleaner dealer sold me belt 5960 by goodyear and said that it would fit my TL2000. I tried it and it did not fit well and after a few minutes snagged. He then suggested I bring the unit in and let him examine the brush and Unit. I declined and want to knw if this goodyear belt is compatable with the TL2000. I 've ordered belt 7227.

Hello Harold, this belt in question is the Turbo-Cat 7227 vacuum belt as seen in a breakdown of TurboCat parts. The name goodyear may or may not be on the belt.

Weak Rotation

I have a TP210 power head. It is not picking up as well as it used to. The gasket around the air intake on the head seems dried out and I have not replaced the belt. I have had it several years and wanted to know in your experience could these parts be my problem. If not do you have any suggestions before I buy parts I don't really need. The central vac system has good suction. Thank you Mary

A new belt may help as well. If any air is leaking from a gasket or micro holes in the hose you will loose power. Also, take the roller brush off and clean the ends. Also, be sure your filter is cleaned or changed on the vacuum canister. If you don't have filtration, be sure the screen just below the motor is cleared off.
