Turn the machine upside down. Take the screws out of the bottom plate and remove it. take out the brush roller and old belt. Wrap the new belt around the metal shaft of the motor first and put the roller inside the belt loop and use the roller as leverage to stretch the belt up to the brush housing and slide the roller in place. Give the roller a spin by hand the make sure everything moves freely before you use it. It should spin with out much effort, if it doesn't you probably have the belt pinched, and you need to free it up before putting the bottom plate back one. It will take a little elbow grease, but it will go on.

Hoovers usually list what kind of belt they take on the serial tag.

Good Luck

Hoover Widepath Tempo - belt slips off when we start it. Can you help?


Perhaps the belt is stretched. Replace it with Hoover belt # 38528-033. Remove the rug plate on the bottom ( 4 screws ), and remove the brushroll. Place the belt around the motor shaft first, then position it around the brush, and push the brush back into the housing. Expect resistance from the belt, as it must be stretched several inches. After the brush is in place, turn it with your fingers to be sure the belt is centered, and not pinched between the brush and the housing. After replacing the bottom plate the vacuum should be ready to use.

Changing a vaccum belt


Most of the Dirt Devils, turn the vac. over, remove the bottom plate, then you can get to the belt and brush roll. If the bottom plate doesn't come off, then from the top, there will be 2 or 3 screws to remove, then the top cover comes off to reveal the belt and brush roll.
