Re: can't get bottom plate off hoover model
Am a bit confused because I can't find the model number you give on the Hoover website, so am not sure exactly which machine we're dealing with. However, the procedure for removing the bottom plate is common to most self-propelled upright wind-tunnel models, and it's simply a matter of laying the machine flat, turning it over and removing the four recessed screws that hold it in place. It can then just be lifted off.
If this doesn't work for you, perhaps you could confirm the model number and I'll try again. It will also help if you say what country you're in.

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.
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.
Hello, You didn't say what the model number is, so, I will give you a link to a website that has instructions with pictures on how to change the belt. Once on this site, you will see two links for belt replacement. Click the one that is closest to your model.

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?

Here's an instructional video that we made showing how to change the belt on a Hoover Windtunnel upright. If your model is not a self propelled model, basically follow the same insturctions, expect instead of placing the belt over the pulley, just put the belt through the roller brush, and stretch the roller brush back into the agitator housing.
