How do I remove the roller from the hoover c1429 vacuum cleaner in order to change the belt. Thanks.

That is an elite style upright. You will need to remove the hood by releasing for tabs around the outside of the hood/base. The brush will simply lift up. You may need to pry on the base with a flat blade GENTLY to get tabs on the ends of the roller out. I'll include a link to the correct belt.


Good Luck!

How to remove hood from hoover steam cleaner deluxe I can not find how to remove hood its on top of nose of steam cleaner

Hi Lisa,

Do you need to clean the nozzle or do you need to do repairs inside? You only remove the hood to do repairs. For cleaning the nozzle, refer to your owner's manual as to what to do after you finish cleaning. There is a description for how to clean the nozzle.

If you need to do repair, please reply back. Thanks,

I have no owners manual and need to replace the belt on a Hoover powermax model #:U5242-930 can you help thanks Bab

I don't see this unit on the Hoover support site. However other Powermax vacuums come up in the search for manuals: .

Most of the units have very similar belt replacement procedures. First unplug the vacuum. Then press the handle release lever and place the handle in the low position. Next remove the hood by turning the two slots either side of the hood with a coin. Rotate the hood towards the front of the unit and remove it. Then remove the agitator brush roll and the old belt. Discard the old belt.

With the lettering to the outside, slide the new belt over the motor pulley. (The old belt should have been on the pulley. If the belt broke and isn't in place, look for it on the right as you look at the front of the vacuum above the agitator brush roller's position.) Slide the agitator brush roller through the belt and place the belt in the belt guide on the roller. Grasp the agitator and put it into position. Fit it into the rectangular slot on the left. Then pull it into position on the right side of the vacuum. Check if the agitator and the belt turn freely and that the belt isn't pinched between the agitator and the bottom of the unit. Replace the hood by aligning the tabs with the slots on the base. Then turn the coin slots to secure the hood.

I hope this helps.

Hoover self propelled U6630900 idler arm lock

Remove the bottom plate (4 screws), remove belts and brush roller. There may be 1 small screw in the center front of the vac under the brush roller. remove this one. If this is a bagless model you will also need to remove all of the back screws (torx) that hold the lower hose on. This needs to be removed to take the hood off. underneath on each side of the power drive assembly you will have 1 screw, remove them. there is a clip on each side that snaps the front on, push them out with a screwdriver. Then the hood is removed.

How do I remove the cleaner hood the clear see thru plastic to clean under the hood?

I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. Hoover F5881-900 Vacuum. There may be 2 ways to remove the top cover. There are two screws located on the bottom and there are 2 ways that might work. The clear tube on Hoover’s sometimes will swivel and that is the way to bet the clear tube unclogged, or once you remove the 2 – 4 screws on the bottom the top should lift right off, and then you can serviced your vacuum cleaner. If you have questions you can always contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or call tech support @ the Hoover @ the factory and ask for tech support.
