I need instructions on how to change the belt on my Hoover Model U4264-930 vaccum.


Tool Needed, flat head screwdriver (larger one works a little better). Serious Safety Precaution: Make sure unit is unplugged. Preliminary: Check: that nothing is caught like threads etc, preventing roller brush from turning. I've had this model vacuum 10 years and have pulled threads out countless times. However it still has the original belt on it. To change belt: 1.) There is a plastic plate underneath roller, towards front.. Pry the 3 tabs at front, the plate hinges downward slightly (to clear the front tabs). Next, there are 2 little clips at bottom of plate. Insert screw driver at each of these clips to fully release the plate the rest of the way. (Or it may even come off without having to pry back on these. The plastic clips need pushed towards front, to clear the ridge that catches towards the back). Pry one, then the other, clip forward, while gently pulling the plate the rest of the way out. (Gentle prying will assure it will snap back together OK, so you still get a good seal.) You now should see the whole roller brush. 2.) Remove the shell/motor cover: To do this, a.) pull off the rug height adjuster lever, and take not where you put it so you won't loose it. b.) push foot release down and keep vacuum bag in the vacuuming/hinged/operating position (not the upright/locked position), and position cleaner on it's side, or upside down. c. Pry around the bottom edge, starting at right corner, then go around, prying in about 4 different places. Shell/motor cover will now easily pull off (upward and out towards front), exposing motor shaft and light bulb. 3.) remove belt from motor shaft. 4. slide roller and old belt out the bottom. 5.) remove old and place new belt on roller 6.) slide roller back into place. 7.) wrap other end of belt on motor shaft. 8.) shell cover, rug height adjuster knob, and bottom plate snap back into place. check that roller turns without much effort. 9.) It now should be ready to plug in and vacuum.

On hoover steam carpet cleaner, the brushes do not rotate on low or high settings.


Follow these steps if the Brushes Fail to Spin
•If the brushes on your Hoover carpet cleaner fail to spin, there may be a problem---some sort of blockage---with the suction or with the belt that turns the brushes.
Turn the Hoover carpet cleaner over, and inspect the brush area. Debris, strings, or pet hair may be tangled in the rollers, keeping them from turning. Use a pair of scissors to cut away any obstructions in this area. Flip the Hoover carpet cleaner back over, and turn it on to see if cleaning the rollers has solved the problem.
To check the belt, turn the Hoover carpet cleaner over, and remove the bottom plate screw with a Phillips head screwdriver. Investigate the belt area to see if it is broken or has somehow slipped off. If it is broken, you can order a part from Hoover.com or from many of the other online parts stores.
When the belt arrives, simply slide it on in place of the broken belt, reattach the bottom plate and turn the Hoover carpet cleaner right-side up. Turn it on to test your solution.

I have a Hoover fold away and the floor cleaner doesn't work only the attachments are working.


The reason for this would most likely be a blockage in the bottom of the foot of the machine. could also be a bad belt. Check or change the belt and look for obstructions.

Describe how to replace belt on hoover windtunnel bagless


If you turn the vacuum so the bottom is facing up you will see the base plate that covers the roller brush. There will be four screws (usually phillips head), remove the screws and the base plate will lift off. You now have access to the roller brush and belt. Lift the roller brush up and remove the old belt. Place one end of the new belt over the motor shaft and the other end over the roller brush and put the roller brush back in place. Now simply replace the base plate and you're done! This models requires Hoover belt # 38528033 (single) or Hoover belt #40201160 (2 pack). You can get this belt at www.vacbelts.com.

How do i install belt?


every Hoover I've had has two screws on the bottom that you remove.  Then you lift off the cover and you pry out the brush roller. The new belt goes with one end on the motor shaft and the other end on the humped roller part on the brush roller.  Good luck it's a bit of a struggle but you can do it.

Hoover Encore Supreme belt replacement


Remove the bottom plate that covers the brush roll and remove the roller. The plate is removed by releasing two clips at the back corners of the plate on either side. Take the roller and install the belt around the pulley and put the other end of the belt through the access hole in the vacuum body. Replace the roller and turn it by haand to ensure that the belt is not pinched. Replace the bottom plate and turn the roller again (same reason).
If you look at the area beside the rear wheel between the hood and the main body, you will see a clip incorporated into the hood. Take a screwdriver and pry it away from the main body. Do this on both sides. You will find a similar clip at the hood just beside the back corner of the plate in the front where the plate clips are located. Pry these as well and hood will come loose. Now you can turn the machine back on its' wheels and remove the hood. You will see the belt where it comes through the main body and you can grab it with a couple of fingers and stretch it onto the motor shaft. Replace the hood and the job is done.
