I need to know how to install the belt on a hoover elite upright, #38528027


There are two snaps underneath to release the bottom plate. Next remove the top cover by gently prying off the base with a flat screwdriver. this will expose the belt. Install the new belt on the roller nd then push through the hole to attach to the motor shaft. reinstall the cover and bottom plate.

Can't find belt# 38528-040-A2 for my upright Hoover Model U5134-911. Is there a another belt that would work for this model?


The Hoover belt number is 38528040 for the single belt. Sold in a 2 pack of 40201190. look for the 2 pk number. use only Hoover belts, they will perform better.

Hoover very noisy after new belt installed.


what is the belt # you have installed (generic)? Yes, there are problems with using generic belts on Hoover Vacuums. If you have noise I would suspect the roller, and replace it. the cost is about $25 and is something that you can install. The newer type are mande of wood and are very quiet.

How to change the belt on a Hoover High Performance upright vacuum cleaner


Generic problem for all Vacuums
How to change the belt
How to change the belt on a Hoover High Performance upright vacuum cleaner

I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure.
Most of the Hoover upright vacuums service from the bottom and to start remove the bottom plate, that should expose the belt – if this is the case, some Hoover’s might be self propelled, if not the self-propelled vacs have 2 belts and the non self propelled models have one belt – so remove the belt(s) and then lift up on the brushroll and slide the belt onto the belt pulley then take a screwdriver tool with a hook on the end and stretch the belt onto the motor shaft – once this has been done the track the belt(s) and it should straighten out and run straight, re-install the bottom plate, plug in and test. If you cannot get @ the belt from the bottom the look for 2 or 3 screws – remove the screws and the top cover will lift off and then follow the procedure mentioned above… Questions? Please feel free to contact your local vacuum dealer in your area or in the yellow pages or contact the Hoover factory for more details.
