You are just not looking hard enough for the fasteners to open this up. I am not familiar with this unit but I would guess there are screws holding it together the are usually concealed in deep channels. If you shine a light in them you should see the screw heads.

I need a diagram to show me where and how to install the front belt< I think the motor belt) on my Hoover Windtunnel, self propelled Model U6634-900 series x12-0 60HZ 120 V


Most vacuums are pretty well the same belt set-up...remove the metal plate covering the rotating floor brush and pull it out...place new belt over motor pulley and and stretch other end over rotating floor brush in the space provided for it....pull and place ends into slots on the sides....if the belt is not straight flip the brush the other way...you will figure it out. Just be sure to buy the right belt!!!

HOW TO CHANGE A BELT


Hi there...You will need a Phillips screwdriver to get the bottom cover off.Remove the screws and then remove the bottom cover.Clean out any excess dirt in the general area of the roller bar and motor assembly area.Place one end of the belt over the steel shaft of the motor and then roll the other end of the belt on to the end of the roller bar.placing the belt on the top of the roller bar and roll the bar slowly and feed the belt onto the roller bar until it is completely in place.Replace the bottom cover and put all the screw back in.
Plug your vacuum in and turn it on with the roller bar off the floor, in other words let it run for 10 seconds until you put it on the carpet allowing the belt to position itself properly on the roller bar.

Have a bissell easy vac 3130-B and the brush on the bottom stopped turning i never looked before so i don really know if it turned in the first place


Behind the brush will be a metal thing that spins when the vacuum runs. That's what the belt loops over with the other end around the brush. You can sometimes find the belts a places like wal mart.

If you'd like to verify the model number, please check the back or the bottom of the vacuum for a sticker that also will contain the serial number, and look for the word Model Number. If you don't have the 4388, please just add a comment with the model you have and I'll be more then happy to verify these two models take the same belt, or give you a link to the belt that goes to your model if they are different.

Metal Spring in Belt area?


Yes the metal spring is used to pivot one of the rollers in that area.

You would need to take it apart one more time and check to see if any of the roller travel up or down while you press it with your fingers. look to the edge on either side for a place to attach the end of a spring. then a place on the chassis to add the other end of the spring. Then redo the belt.

Belt


Not sure yet, but I assume you mean the belt that drives the brush at the base.
If it is an older style cleaner, there would a be cover held on by a few screws.
This hold the brush in place so tkae note of how it is in place should it fall out of place.
Lift the belt off the motor spindle to replaceit.
