Please first check if both fuses or the circuit breaker has not tripped.
If you are getting only 120v on one leg of the 140v power, you may get lights and no heat, otherwise please give the make and model.

you need to remove the whole front of the machine by removing the : top by the 3 screws at the back,then unscrew the screws across the front of the top of the bezel then remove,then open the door,remove the circle of screws then put the machine on its back,remove the screws at the bottom front of the machine,then lift the front bottom of the machine and slide it upwards then you should be able replace the belt then refit in reverse order good luck.

On the rear there is a Heating element hidden under the silver cover, on the top of this unit, there is 2 thermostat's, one is a auto-reset set (On the left) around the 100'c mark and one is a single use thermal trip set at 130'c (on the right, also denoted by a blue spot), the idea is when the heater reaches 100'c is powers off until the air temp drops, once it drops the auto-reset kicks in and forses the heater to power back up, however, in the intrests of safety, if the auto reset fails to power down then the 130'c thermostat will permenently remove power from the heater and will illuminate the filter care light, the only way to restore the power to the heater is to either have an engineer replace the whole heater as Hoover/candy do not sell on the thermal cut out to anyone.
you can usually find the heater unit for £30-40, an engineer may charge upto £140 for the same part and fitting.

if you have cleaned your filter at the door and checked the outlet is not blocked either then it will most likely be the heater element on the back of the machine, it has three parts to it, 1 thermal switch,2 is some sort of magnetic type switch and 3rd is the element its self,
problem is its only sold as one unit, but very easy to replace.
