I'll take a stab at this.,. but understand that I am not all that familiar with the Hoover Brand you have.. Most of the base plates have recess holes that have screws deep inside them and those need to be removed to seperate the plate from the main housing.. Some models require the removal of the wheels first.. Once you have the plate separated.. you should be able to remove the beater brush from teh holder and the belt with it.. That is usually a good time to check the vacuum ducting back to the bag for clogs or debris and give it a good cleaning.. If you have acces to another vacuum .. it may help to use that to **** out any material in that ducting.. Hope this gets you headed in the right direction...

How do you change the belt for the brushes


Turn the vacuum upside down, there should be two thumb release pivot screws. Remove bottom cover, now you have access to the belt. Remove belt that's in figure eight position, then reinstall same as above with figure eight position.

See if you can pick up a nylock nut for the pulley. As long as your nut is a standard thread and not a reverse thread fastener.

Beater bar Belt Removal from Upright Electrolux...
Posted by wrenn on Jul 14, 2008
I am trying to change the belt on an Electrolux Model 1717 Upright Vacuum and I am having difficulty disassembling the vacuum to remove the beater bar and belt.
Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. . Normally there are screws, clips or levers that would remove the bottom plate or if that does not work then the top cover will come off and that will expose the belt. Once that is off and the belt is exposed then cut off the old belt and then lift up the brushroll on the pulley end and install the new belt around the pulley end and re-install the brushroll. Then use a belt puller or a screwdriver with a bent right or left end to stretch the belt onto the motor pulley and then track the belt in a straight line and reverse you steps in the reinstall of the top cover or bottom plate. So if you need further assistance, please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or in the yellow pages, or contact the factory phone number or website to further assist you with your questions.

How do I change the belt in an upright vacuum?

Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. Well, I can try to tell you a how to for a generic vacuum, but we really need more information as per the brand name and model # in order to tell you the best way to change the belt on your current vacuum. Most vacuums have a removable bottom plate o which will release by screws, clamps or levers and the bottom plate should come off or the top cover will come off. Then the belt should be exposed. Then cut off the belt, lift up on the brushroll side where the pulley is and place the belt on the pulley, then reinstall the brushroll – now use a belt puller or screwdriver and pull / stretch the belt onto the motor pulley – then track the belt by rolling the belt in a straight line – if the install worked then reinstall the top cover and or the bottom plate. So if you need further assistance, please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or in the yellow pages, or contact the factory phone number or website to further assist you with your questions.

Belt change for eureka capture


Lie the vacuum down so it's completely flat, the back of it facing up. On the bottom of it, on the grey plastic, there are instructions. They say, to access the belt, remove the screws numbered 1, 2, 3 & 4. Then look at the four corners of the bottom of the vacuum and you'll see these numbers. You may need a flashlight to actually see the screws because a couple of them are pretty deep inside the plastic. Loosen them with a long shafted, Phillips screwdriver. Stand the vacuum back up and the screws should just fall out. Then you can easily pop off the cover to change the belt.

How to change Vacuum belt?

Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure.
Not knowing the name brand or model # most vacuums belt change from the bottom or by removing the top cover to change the belt for an upright, if you have a bottom plate remove the bottom plate and remove the belt, make sure the brushroll spins free and does not have any thread or hair buildup, once that is done slide the belt onto the brushroll pulley and then stretch the belt onto the motor pulley, once on the 2 pulleys then tract the belt and replace the bottom plate – plug in and turn on to check. If you have the type where the top cover comes off it is then the same procedure listed above for the brushroll and belt. If you have a canister with a powerhead there are 2 or 3 screws on the bottom and the top cover would come off and then follow the procedure just like the upright. So if you need further assistance, please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or in the yellow pages, or contact the factory phone number or website to further assist you with your questions.

Changing belts


Turn vac over, remove the 4 screws holding the bottom plate covering the brush roll. There are 2 belts, one is a V belt ( 38528034) for the brush roll, the other is a flat belt (38528035) that goes from the larger pulley and the motor shat, put it on the motor shaft then stretch it to go over the pulley.

I figured it out! The key is removing the "head" that covers the headlight - use a flathead screwdriver to pop it off.....then the belt connects from the agitator to the motor pulley. Phew!

Hoover savvy changeing belt


There some screws on the bottom to take off, then turn vac upright, under the round Hoover logo sticker is another screw. It is just a sticker, so will peel off. You can work the belt onto the motor pulley, or unscrew the motor, put the belt on the pulley, then reinstall the screws to hold down the motor.
