Step 1: Accessing the Belt
Take off the cover or part which allows access to the belt.
Step 2: Making the Belt
Once you have removed the belt take some duct tape and match the belt length and the duct tape length, then add an extra inch. Fold the duct tape to match the width of the belt.
Step 3: Installing the Belt
Once you have made the belt wrap it through the brush's pulley.
Next put the belt around the motor's shaft.
Finally tape the belt together, make sure it is tight enough for the motor and brush to spin.
Step 4: Finished
Re-Assemble your vaccuum and use it.
You may want to test it before re-assembling your vaccuum to see if the belt is tight enough.
I was able to clean the carpet very well until I accidentally vaccuumed up a sock, which stopped the brush and caused the duct tape belt to break, but the vaccuum is fine.
