My Hoover upright will not pick up dirt when vacuumed over the carpet. It makes the path over the dirt like it should do without picking up.

You need to check the brush at the bottom of the machine, it is belt driven and the belt tends to break, you could replace the belt yourself, if that is the problem.

Belt broke how do i fix it

To my knowledge model F7220900 SteamVac doesn't require a belt. Are you sure that is your model? If you have a different Hoover model you can get a replacement belt here:

Belt Broke - Need to replace it

All you need to do is:

1) Get the actual model number of your Hoover. The information you gave is just what appears on the front of the unit, and that's not the model number. You will find the actual model number on a small tag at the rear of the vacuum near bottom, or on the bottom of the unit.

2) Take that model number to a local independent vacuum cleaner store (not a department / big box store, which will have very limited belt offerings), where they will set you up with a new one. Probably wouldn't hurt to call first just to make sure they carry them / have them in stock.

Can you verify the model number? However, based on your posted description, it sounds like the flat belt is either broken or fell off. to access the belts turn it over and remove the bottom plate (4 screws). the Flat belt will connect to the motor shaft in the back and the large black pulley.

I am trying to change the belt on a Hoover legacy dirt finder. I cannot figure out how to get to the inside pulley where the belt hooks.

I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. The Hoover legacy belt change can either be changed from the bottom of the vacuum by either taking out the screws, clips or levers, and then you can remove the bottom plate or the top cover, what ever the case might be. Then you can cut off the old belt and then guide the new belt onto the motor pulley by using a long nose pliers or a screwdriver; if it is hard to reach and then take the brushroll and slide it inside of the belt and then pull back until the brushroll will fit into the brushroll holder, then you can replace the top cover or the bottom plate and reverse the procedure that you did to change the belt. So if you need further assistance, please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or in the yellow pages, or contact the factory phone number or website to further assist you with your questions.

Belt broke on my model u5064-940 and need to replace it

Remove the bottom plate, then use a flat blade, from the bottom edge of the top cover, pry out to release the tabs and the top cover will come off( there maybe 2 screws form the bottom to remove). Then you can replace the belt.

On the back, take the hose off, inside the duct you can see a disc,(it is on the bottom of the duct) it may be filmed over with dirt, that is the sensor, clean it off then try again. If it still comes on, then it may be bad or you have a clog in the hose or the dirt inlet by the brush roll.
