On this model there will also be 2 more screws at the top near the back on each side. the hood will come off. there will also be a cover over the roller, remove this with 3 screws, this will expose the area of the belt.

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.

Hoover empower belt need replace


To gain access to the belt: remove 2 screws at the top rear cover, next remove 2 screws at the bottom front cover. This will allow the cover to be removed. Then remove 3 or 4 screws that hold the roller in place (from the top). you will be able to see the belt and replace it.

Take to Walmart, plug it in and start to vacuum THEIR floors!
Try removing the dust container and look for anything blocking airflow including the HEPA filter. Make sure the dust cup has a seal where it joins the vacuum. The fix is probably simple, but it shouldn't be up to you to do so!

My hoover wide path fold away automatically shuts off as if there is a clog but i have taken it apart and can not locate a clog at all....what could be the problem?


Hi there SmartAlec from NelsonVacuums.com.au here. The most common reason for this problem with this style of vacuum is that the filter is blocked with extremely fine dust. You can test this by removing the filter and running it *NOT BY VACUUMING* without the filter. Just turn it on and let it run for 5 minutes if it does not turn off then your filter is slowing the airflo down so much that it is just like a blockage and the thermal overload is kicking in and shuttin off your vacuum. I have the filters for this vacuum listed on my website if you need to purchase a new one.
Hope this helps! Happy Vacuuming :)

How do you put a Hoover runabout belt on vacuum


I found this on another site and it worked for me. RonL

Looking at the brush, remove the two screws from the black plate holding the brush. There are two clips that holds this plate once you remove the screws. This should be easy to remove with a flat type screw driver. Now is the tricky part to remove the top cover of the vacuum so you can access the compartment to put the belt on. The whole top part of this vacuum comes off. If you look above the part where black plate was, there are two more clips on the top left and top right hand corner. These two hold one end of the top cover. It is not as simple as pushing the clip to one end to slide out. You have to find a gap between the edge of top cover and bottom structure(right next to each clip) and shove the flat screw driver in and push the top cover away from the bottom structure and push down the top cover. You will notice that there are invisible hinges between the two which locks in the top cover.

Do the same procedure for the bottom right and left edges(right next to each end of the brush) of the vacuum and separate the two(bottom structure and top cover) out using the flat type screw driver..

I have a Hoover Fold Away, U5175-900
I have a Hoover Fold Away, U5175-900. Have had it for 4 months and from the get go; it has been extremely noisy especially with the attachments. Have a warranty but thought it might be a minor item I could fix.

I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure.
I would advise that you take it to a authorized vacuum dealer as to he would be able to diagnose the problem better than I, you typically have a one year factory warranty with the Hoover Co and if there is a brushroll / belt problem or motor than it would be covered under the factory warranty other than the belt is NOT covered, it could be something that has not been tightened down or missing some type of gasket or a bad bearing or bushing. If you have problems contact the Hoover Co for a dealer nearest you, or look in the yellow pages for a vacuum dealer nearest you.
