Hoover Savvy Belt

Happy Holidays.
Trying to take your helpful advice on replacing the belt. The infamous sticker screw was a real help. I'm wondering if the belt goes on both sides of the spool that is in the middle. I say yes but my wife says not so. I can't however get the spool out to have the belt go on both sides. I'm at a stand still. It looks like it has room to go through and I doubt the friction of it rubbing on itself would be productive over time.

Help.
Thanks so much. It's much cheaper to try to do it yourself.

How to replace geared belt on Hoover Savvy U8171


Tom, This one is tricky. First get the belt on the geared motor pully, and then insert the roller through it. You will have to roll the brush toward the body of the vac to have enough room. Patience is the best on this model.

How do I install the timing belt on my Hoover Savvy Vacuum? Modle # u8174-900 Where is it located?


http://www.vacshopusa.com/hoover_savvy.htm
This is a parts schematic for your hoover savvy. You have to take off the brush guard on the bottom and also the cover on top (there is a screw under the round hoover logo). You will then see how the belt is attached. Very easy to do. Hope this helps

How do you replace the belt on a Hoover Savvy?


Take off the bottom plate, then remove the screws to remove the top cover, turn vac over, remove the hoover emblem, there is a screw there to remove. The top should come off, the easiest is to loosen the motor to give you some slack, then replace the belt and reasemble.

U8174-950 SAVVY BEATER BAR NOT TURNING HOW DO I REPLACE BELT OR FIX BELT AND WHERE IS CLOSE SUPPLYER IN EDMONTON ALBERTA


Take the screws out from the plate covering the brush roll, look for maybe 2 screws from the bottom to take out, then turn vac over, remove the Hoover emblem and remove the screw there, now the top will come off and you can get to the belt and brushroll. Check around your local repair shops for a cogged belt for the Savvy. I would think someone would stock it. Alot of Sew and Vacuum stores also service and have parts.

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.

Need help with my Hoover Savvy U8172-900 -- agitator does not spin when on


You probably jammed the roller brush and the gears on the motor stripped the teeth out of the drive belt.  You have to take the bottom and the top covers off the lower unit to replace the belt.  There is a hidden screw that keeps you from taking off the top, thus creates work for authorized Hoover repair shops.  You'll find that screw under the round red label in the center of the top of the lower section.  Peel it up and there is the screw.
